I don't know him but the position is not a win. KATV is a joke. I thought they were suppose to be the Razorback station. Putting one reporter in NWA is not being "The Station". Congrats to Beau though.

Beau is a great guy and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him when I was in Little Rock. I have no doubt he'll do good things for KATV.

You're kidding right? I don't care for Bo as a person but he's the best the state has had to offer for a looooooong time.

Why I remember when I was just a boy. Town folk told tale of a man, well he was more than a man, he was hero. I'd say, "What's his name?" and they'd reply, "Well, Beau...Beau McCastlain of course."

He must of stood ten feet tall if he was an inch and hands like watermelons! That is to say they were alway speckly green for some reason.

He'd walk from one end of town to the next with his tiny red wiener dog named Theodore. They were quite a sight, be it was a sight we were always happy to see. because if Beau McCastlain and Theodore were waling around town, you knew all was right with the world.

I hear tell he walks through bigger cities now, doing even bigger things. We're proud...but we miss him. I guess Beau and his tiny red wiener belong to the world now. Congradulations!

If Beau is a male dove, then Bo is a dodo bird.

Beau will also now give the KATV softball team a distinct shot at a championship.

Trouble is, Beau knows he ought to be playing baseball and quit playing the children's games.

Congrats Beau--you've come a long way.

Mars got that job for her. no way katv would hire her back any other way. she was pretty good back in the 90s. I'm not sure why she gave up a good career fora crazy guy like Mars.

Because she loves the money. look at who she married before Mars. Thats all she cares about.

Yeah, Ted Skokas got her at least two of her jobs before too.She's gone through as many tv stations as husbands. Does she ever stay in any one place or stick with anyone or anything for more than a few years?

 
At 9:41 PM, October 24, 2007, Anonymous Anonymous said...

That's been a pattern of hers for years. She's stay with something just long enough to get what she wants out of it and then ditches and moves on to bigger and better things

Yes, loyalty is not her strength in any arena

Who cares about her loyalty? If I was her I'd get away from Mars as quick as I could. He's scarey and crazy
