Why does Donna have to be dressed up as a cheerleader? She's pretty jumpy/jerky on camera every day! And how about the dramatic chair turns?

And they have the facilities and people to pull this off how? Most consistent point about them is their job openings, Oops, maybe highlights will be cellphone pictures, or they draw stick figures-misspelled of course!!

Well, they pretty well rapped up the Friday night football scores while the other stations were still in the wx segment of their shows.

Yep, shore did.

If the other stations want to scoop KLRT, they are going to have to present their sports segments at the top of their shows, not last.

Watched the first part of their show, it was pretty good. Best of the bunch from what I saw. Sorry Sully, I think you've lost the crown.

Well, if the big guys think they can do better than what we just did, go ahead and try. I think we just put out the best high school football show in the state, but that's just my opinion. Still, you have to admit it went pretty well.

not enough games. KATV still leads the pack with total games covered

Well, when they give us a helicopter, we'll go get all the small-town games too. As it is, 12 games with no chopper is really good, the highlights last longer and we have two live presences. But yeah, I wish I could be like 7 and just sit somebody in front of a TV for the whole show. How creative.

KLRT's little show might be the biggest or the best, or not, but the subject is still only high school football. It is not NCAA Division I. It is not the NFL. It is high school football, which should only matter to high school kids, teachers, principals, band directors and parents who have kids involved in the games. If you are not one of those mentioned and you still get off on high school football, going to the games or covering it as media, then you need to get a life. People spending their Friday night shopping at Wal-Mart have more of a life than you guys.

So you're admitting you don't have the equipment to cover news like KATV? Helicopter or not you an make it happen. I worked at a station that covered tons more games. They would send live trucks to feed points around the area. The photogs would shoot games on teh fringes of the market and drive to feed points. Feed the highlights back. Bingo bango bongo mroe highlights and no helicopter.

You guys are hilarious. You're acting like we covered five games and then ran a bunch of fancy graphics for 35 minutes. We had 12 games (more than THV and KARK), we hit the Game of the Week a couple times for LIVE updates (not just Sully sitting in front of a TV), and we put in some special features as well. This wasn't some half-ass effort; we busted it and produced the best high school football show in the market. So go ahead and criticize, but Friday Night Tailgate is easily head and shoulders above the rest for high school football reports.

KLRT will dominate the 10 p.m. slot because of their Friday night high school football coverage during the season mainly because viewers are getting tired of seeing a repeat of the 6 p.m. news which is all the 10 p.m. news is on all stations.

A viewer.

Wow, I can tell this isn't Texas. If somebody said, "It's just High School Football" there, they'd be shot.

Maybe it is a low demo. But to those people, High School football is like, the end all be all. I think it's pretty smart to cover it so thoroughly.

Until you're able to see the output from KFSM/40-29/KNWA/KAIT/KTVE/KNOE/etc. etc., you can't call yourself the best in the state. Not saying it's not true, just pointing out a flaw in the logic there.

As long as the "Big Three" rewind their 6 p.m. news and show the same thing at 10 p.m., KLRT will lead that hour during high school football season. Fact is people get tired of seeing the same ole stories. One station was still running a story this morning (Tuesday) that was first run last Saturday.
