Storm Brewing Among Mets in Shreveport

This from a tipster: KTAL IS RUNNING A PROMO THAT STATES, "Todd Warren was the ONLY chiefMeteorologist to come in and tell the people about the March 3rd tornadoes."

This is FALSE, Stephan Parr was on at the same time. Plus, ToddWarren's first time on air was after all the Tornado Warnings were already issued.

7:38am Tornado Warning Bowie, Morris, Red River
Ruston Duke Cuts in...
8:01 Tornado Warning Bowie Co.
Ruston Duke cuts in
8:31 Tornado Warning hempstead, Howard, Little River and Sevier Co's
Ruston Duke Cuts In...

Todd Warren cuts in for 8 minutes to tell people about Rain, and nowhas a promo about his complete coverage and first Chief on scene???

Additional: This was emailed to me Thursday:
Stephan Parr calls KTAL and wants to Prove he was also on the air. This was 3:30 pm yesterdayThe Todd Warren promotion states he was the ONLY chief the cover the storms? funny!

This is a NEXSTAR station what do you expect from them.

If your CEO is a scumbag what do you think the workers will be?

Well one thing you can surely say about the weather in Shreveport-Bossier: it sure does blow from time-to-time!

It's the same everywhere. Like a bunch of 3rd graders and one of them saying he had the bat and ball first
and the others whining to the teacher or in this case the viewers.
Grow up babies.

First news is overrated.

Best news is underrated.



But who cares. Weather nerds are freaking unbearable.

If you want weather: Watch the weather channel.

KTAL has the best weather tools in the biz. The instant weather network is keeping Todd ahead of the storms. So what if he's not there, the Instant weather network was. Ahead of the storms, not behind them....Stephan Parr.

Why does ARSN tell us who their GM and director of sales are at the end of each Razorback broadcast? They say this stuff like the public should care, like it's important. It's not, so why do they do it?

Do you care about who ARSN's GM is, or any of that stuff for that matter? And what does the sales director have to do with the broadcast? He's on his two-day break. I'll bet he didn't do jack to get that broadcast aired.

What poor grammar. But then again, DCG works in retail, so what can you expect?

Good grief people. If you do your job right and provide competent, reliable weather information to your viewers, they will know who is doing the best job.

If you have to fight over who has the right to brag about it, your head is in the wrong place.

SIGH.... I miss the days when all we needed to know about weather came from Al Bolton. Long before Mega-Triple-whoop-de-doo: Our Radar's Better 'n yours---stupid looking weather labs and smarmy weather-dorks..... we had the calmness, precision-speaking....no-nonsense, practical weather information from Al Bolton.

When it comes to weather...I click on the weatherchannel...forget local news...it's not news...it's a "lookatmee!! lookatmee!! More BS than at a Junior League Fundraiser!! Click...I'm outta here!!

"What poor grammar. But then again, DCG works in retail, so what can you expect?"

The bulk of post was tip in quotations that a tipster sent him. It is clear that it wasn't wrriten by DCG. Just because one works in grammar does not mean he or she must lack gramma abilities nor is not intelligent. People seeme to think in order to be intelligent, one must have good grammar. That isn't so. One might be plenty intelligent in many other capacities besides grammar.

Your comments were unnecessary and rude. You are certainly no better than anyone else.

Hold on a minute about the workers. What you don't know about the KTAL newsroom if you're not involved in it. Secrets, setups, backstabbing, snakes in the grass, and drama drama drama. KTAL honors those who will bow down and say "yes massuh", not those with the skills and intelligence needed to take that station out of its humiliating slump. And, that slump doesn't bother anyone in KTAL's departments outside of promotions and news. In fact, the journalists working in that newsroom have to ask their sales managers permission to run stories that involve clients or future ones...news judged by who's got the deepest pockets?! Dangerous, KTAL, dangerous. As far as the CEO scumbag comment...your next drink's on me, anonymous!

Todd?! Are you leaving comments again?!
Shame shame!
Shouldn't you be going in during someone else's shift and making a promo about what they did?!
Get off your ego trip Mr Warren.
Sorry to tell you, but there are young people in the business who WILL take your place someday.

Please, Todd is the biggest fish in a pond with no water. Not only do people watching tv hate to hear him talk, co-workers have to say hi becuase he's in bed with Scott Thomas.
He cut in for hours the other night about hail in oklahoma!!
Don't worry about anybody wanting his job and staying. Most people work at ktal to pad the resume, not stay and suck...
