Technical Problems Storm KARK During Severe Weather

Attempted to post this late last night/early Friday morning:

While severe storms moved through many parts of the state, including Little Rock, KARK seemed to experience some graphics broadcast problems. One could see the look of disgust as KARK Met Brett Cummins attempted to show viewers the radar, watch/warning map none of the graphics would pop up on the screen. This occurred around midnight. The first sign I saw things weren't going well was when Cummins ripped out his IFB. Later around 12:15am Cummins explained the problem to viewers...but KARK seems to still be experiencing some graphics problems with local spots AND id's.

Well, KATV had a crawl with MULTIPLE misspellings this week to say that General Hospital would not be shown during "it's regualr" time and would be shown "Satruday" instead. Good job, guys.

If Brett says the graphics should work.. then they should... Afterall, Brett said it would work.

It's because he doesn't have a third leg like the chicken does.

You people are disgusting. Get a life and grow up. It's live tv, and I'm sure things go wrong from time to time.

How does not wearing an IFB make Ned Perme good??

Guess the KARK weather team spends too much time pimping weather radios.

With the score at the bottom of the screen, KATV chose to put the weather watch map at the top, left and the key to the colors to the right of that, making the program almost un-watchable.

Thank you KATV, again.

Glad they won't be "televising" all of the Razorback games now.

That would never happen with Meredith Mitchell. She is the best and hottest weather girl in the market.

I agree, but they are on fire over at KTHV - ever since they hired babe-alicious Meredith Mitchell!!!

Nothing against Meredith, but she's not the mega-babe you guys make her out to be. She's cute, but some of you are making waaaay too much of her.

I think we're just so thirsty we'll drink the sand. I can remember the days of Kim Miller. . . now that was a sexy woman!

Couldn't get the "Live Eye" in there close enough.

Instead of "Sky 4, 7, 11_" They need "Water 4, 7, 11 ."

Dan Ashley is the best weather person in the state

Dan Ashley is maybe the worst. He said spring started six hours ago, when it really started just after midnight. I guess he does not pay attention to the a.m. or p.m. which goes behind the time

How many containers of mascara does Tracey Douglas go thru in a week? I would like to know who her "makeup" person is.

There's no way THV, KATV, and KARK could ALL be rocking. So are the numbers really in, and if so, what do they really say?

The only reason that KARK is third is because KETS does not have a news block.

I am wondering which station will be the first to "crawl" weather warnings in Spanish?

KTHV has the only double-bar crawl and it is operational in HD format.

Will this be their new secret weapon to get the Hispanic viewers? Are ratings books published in Spanish?

You can see the weather radar for this area at the Extreme Weather Net:

Just plug in your location and you can get the radar, storm alerts, etc.

KARK stayed on the air all night and until mid morning with information on the storm that hit Benton and LR. Today's THV started running infomercials before midnight.

Thanks THV. BTW it's Cammack Village, not Kaymack Village. How familiar are your "Anchors" with the names of places in and around Arkansas that they "read" news about?

I'm surprised that THV would not put on Meredith Mitchell instead of Ed Buckner the night of the tornadoes. She is so hot it could only make their ratings soar.
