KFSM Reporter/Producer Movin' to DC

This from a tipster: Sara Lasure has taken a job with Congressman Boozman in DC.

According to her bio, Lasure joined KFSM as a reporter/producer in January of 2004. Before working at KFSM she worked as an anchor/reporter/producer at KOMU-TV in Columbia, Missouri.

I hope she does not become a press contact.

Looks like she will. The former press person for Boozman is leaving

Good for her! She'll do well in that position. And she's getting out of this market/business with a good portion of her soul still intact!

Oh no! Does this mean Jared B will get his week-end desk job back?

Let's hope. As you'll see in other posts, he single-handedly brought in new viewers. He's clearly the messiah of local tv we've all been waiting for.

I am going to miss her! damn she was the reason I watched 5. I am sad now. I agree with the last poster. Wish you the best, Ms. Lasure. I hope that Tara Campbell chick can move up at 5 now. I have became a big fan of hers over the past few months.

Good luck, Sara. You'll be great in your new post!

I knew this day would eventually come, but its still sad news to take. Sara was one of the best at Channel 5. A great career move for her-a great loss for the viewers of KFSM.

This is truly a sad day for the people of Arkansas.

KFSM will lose tens of thousands of viewers because Sara Lasure is leaving.

She cannot be replaced

OK Sara can stop posting comments about herself now.

We get the point.

We miss you Sara. Please come back. Darren Bobby is all we have and it's not enough!

Its okay that Sara is moving on, now we'll have room for the other reporters to show their stuff.

You guys suck! She is doing the weekend and is very good. Sara/Kendra/Adria has that been done before? the whole news nothing but chicks?

It is amazing that Sara looks ten times better in her bio pic than in real life or on air.

How does that happen?

Good! She talked out of the side of her mouth and was very annoying.

Now if they can only find a way to get rid of Tara Campbell and Adria Goins!!


They need to let Mary Marsh start doing the weekends.


and move Ashely Ketz to the evening anchor slot.

Tara Campbell is ok but your right about Adria Goins. Her body is so manlike it makes you cringe. Mary Marsh isn't very good either and I don't think you can totally blame her wrong leprosy story on inexperience. Ketz is pretty good with potential to be great so she probably won't be there too much longer.

Ashley Ketz is my fav.

Mary Marsh is ready to anchor and should be given the opportunity.

You have to be either Mary Marsh or joking.

I'm ready for them to start using more of Mary- She is more then ready to it, just hope she doesn't have to move back to FS!!!

Mary Marsh needs to learn how to report facts before she coniders any anchor spot.

From Columbia to nowhere to DC as the hack for a GOP Congressman...wonder how many KOMU alums say that's their career path? Yep, another "reporter" becomes a flack for a pol...guess she and Alice Stewart can sit down and have tea and talk about what it's like to work for losers in politics after having been losers in broadcasting.

9:01...You must be a loser too since you're so jealous. And what does YOUR career path look like? Obviously not much better if you're posting on this blog.

Speaking of "hacks," it looks like Sara's predecessor did the same thing: go from TV to pols, including a stop at KFSM. Now he's moving on to a better gig.

What's in the water in Fort Smith?

Once again, Mary has paid her dues and should be afforded the opportunity at anchoring. Recent mistakes went beyond Mary, anyone truly paying attention knows that and she should not be penalized.

Mary has paid her dues? Are you kidding me?! Are you the same person who defended her bogus story on leprosy by saying it's not her fault because she's "green?" Be serious, now. You don't do a little half-assed reporting then somehow stumble onto the anchor desk. Even Ch. 5 should have better standards than that!

Geez, that's harsh! And ridiculous. I met Sara only once, but I'm sure she'll be great in this position. It's something to be proud of, not looked down upon. TV people love to make you think leaving the biz is shameful for some reason. Probably because they're jealous you are about to get a job that pays better than a zoo pooper scooper... and stinks less, too.

Agreed.

Also, I would not call Boozman a political loser.

Winning the last go around with 63% doesn't fit that description.

Only up in Rightwing land can a clown like Boozman win elections! Thank GOD the rest of the state votes for people that are not slaves to the Church and Bush machine.

as a devout democrat, I feel dirty just saying this but Boozman's record speaks for itself. Whatever you think of his politics he has undeniably worked FOR the betterment of his district.

Sara is not a loser even thought she went to Mizzou. Tara Campbell should be anchoring in my opinion. That Mary Marsh girl messed up on that Burger King robbery story one night and got it mixed up with another crime report and Darren Bobb's facial expression when he realized it was priceless and awkward and plus this lepercy debacle she needs more work to be nice about it. I hope KFSM revamps it, I totally agree with the moving of the pieces they have and some promotions I guess for some. I will miss Sara dearly. I wonder what will happen with Ashley Beck?

Tara Campbell has the personality of a fence post. Ashley Beck is great if she would just...sllloooowwww down when she talks.
