"'tween the" would be a good good name since that is where the kids were made!

Jancey, shouldn't you be taking care of your babies instead of on the computer?

And to all those bloggers who always talk about how "hot" Jancey is, let's see how much you say that now that she's popped out a couple of kids. Mark my words, it'll be just the way it was with Dawn Scott, no offense Dawn.

And quit picking on Melissa. Jealousy doesn't become you.

jancey didn't get that big during pregnancy, so she'll still be hot after the kids.

Kristin Fisher has sure been a flash in the pan huh? She came in as the hot redhead with the big smile and did that thing with the van traveling all cross the state. Now she's faded to just another reporter.

Jancey is pretty and nice and a pro. That's why we like her.

Channel 4 was contracted to run the game. The station didn't have to carry the convention at all. I thought it was great they showed the entire speech and delayed their newscast. Viewers got to see the game and the speech. I would also bet that more people were watching the game than the convention coverage.

Did anyone else see the KARK weatherman sitting in a car wearing a poncho and goggles and telling everyone that it was raining hard and the wind was blowing in a town in Louisiana while his picture jumped around? Oh the drama!

CNN and The Weather Channel provided all the weather coverage we needed.

Yes, I saw Francis and thought he looked like a complete goober. During the Six, he advsied that he had them on because it is what all the cool weather guys do (wear goggles) so they "can see flying debris" in a hurricane. Funny, he was the only goofball I saw wearing swim goggles on any of the national coverage I've seen the past 36 hours. What an idiot.

He is a wannabe weatherman actor.

I guess he thought that everyone in the nation could see him.

Yes, with those Wal-Mart goggles he looked like a bi-plane pilot of the 30's. What a goober.

Why did he have the goggles on and parka covering his head while he was in the car?

Can't wait to see the promos showing him braving the storm and saving lives in Louisiana.

I watched Mike Francis' hurricane report with my 9 and 12 year old daughters and we had the biggest laugh.What a goofball wearing swim goggles.He really takes himself too seriously. What a joke! His report told us nothing that we didn't already know. That hurricanes bring in a lot of wind and rain.

Actually it all boiled down to a commercial for Honda "Element" as he kept patting it and mentioning the name plus the camera guy getting a shot of the HONDA logo on the side of the vehicle. Actually, I think the HONDA logo was larger than the KARK logo. Isn't that called a "trade out?"

I would have been more impressed if it had been a Range Rover.

I find it amazing that mike kept saying he was chasing the storm, like it took real skills to find it.

HOW TO FIND A HURRICANE
by Mike swimeyes Francis

1. Drive south toward large storm

2 Put on swim goggles

3 Get on tv and act like its a big deal.

4. Think its the greatest thing since sliced bread.

And yes I believe most of the people on tv take themselves too serious.

Someone is a very bitter person, and yes I know who you are. You had better be careful posting this at work, each of these slanderous posts have ip's attached to them. That means that these can be applied in a court case, and get you in a ton of hot water..... and a lawsuit.

I posted the original Jim Cantore statement. No I'm not Mike Francis. I'm not even a big fan of Francis. But the facts are the facts. Cantore wears goggles in the storm and so did Mike. When you're in 90 mph plus winds, don't you think you need some eye protection? It's easy to criticize from the comfort of your living room. I'm sure that wind and rain hurts like hell!

At 7:49 PM, September 04, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

We (KARK) sent our truck and crew (including Mike) down to cover Gustav to help support Nexstar's stations in Louisiana and Beaumont, Texas. So, since Mike was there as part of our crew to help out our sister stations he did daily live hits for 4. Love him or hate him Mike is extremely passionate about weather and he was real excited to go down and experience a hurricane. He's witnessed dozens of tornados but I don't think he had gotten inside a hurricane yet. He studies weather non-stop. Plus, the storm looked like it was going to impact Arkansas. So this is another reason we (KARK) sent our Chief Met to cover the storm and follow it back into Arkansas. The goggles may have looked goofy. And he was getting in and out of his car several times (as Gustav was rolling in) doing live web updates. I think he forget to take his goggles off once or twice when he was doing the live web update. We think it's cool Mike's getting lots of attention about his goggles. Like I stated earlier, love Mike, hate Mike, call him the super weather dork, whatever... he is memorable and that's one of the best qualities about Mike. And while he misses a forecast every once in a while (they all do) he really is knowledgeable and we're glad Mike LOVES his job. He pumps us all up when severe weather is heading for the state.

Francis acknowleged the goggles were silly looking during the 6:00 newscast. He called them the Michael Phelps special. It was funny and he laughed about it himself. He said they were necessary to be able to see flying debris in 90 mph winds. I don't blame him at all for wearing them. He wasn't in a fashion show, he was in a hurricane.

For a bunch of bitter people that think Mike Francis is a joke, you sure know a lot about what he did in the hurricane. As a matter of fact, you are even able to quote what he said down to the Michael Phelps comment. I would say that what he did was very effectice, it sure has created a lot of buzz here.

Anyone ever find it ironic that when a hurricane is bearing down, local government agencies issue these mandatory evacuations, and when media conglomerats advise people to leave, get out, etc, and THEN go against their own advice and put themselves in harms way? MORONS! Seem a bit indulgent?

What's more is whenever the event is the over-sensationalized "storm of the century" cat 5 blockbuster storm, and then comes ashore barely a cat 2 hurricane. People are not going to beleive the media or local government honchos anymore and stay put. This could be quite disasterous.

Several folks from Louisiana wound up having to ESCAPE Arkansas!

This proves that it's all about that emmy, or edward r murrow award or local award that they want to win to impress their girl or boyfriends.

The post above that said that Mike was there to assist the local Nexstar station in Louisiana? Do What? The power was and is still out! They couldn't watch him and I doubt Mike has the ability to become the human power line to restore power there so that folks could see him or the local stations. What could Mike assist them with? I'm sure they have capable weather folks of their own there that know what they are doing. It was all a big freakin' SHOW! Call it, it what it is - A SHOW! Mike may win an award, if that's the most important thing to him because he was the only one from Arkansas covering the event. Congrats dude, you win.

A Cat2 Hurricane has a wind of around 110mph. There are tornadoes in Arkansas that have winds of that magnitude as well. A 2x4, or sheet metal or twig for that matter in 110mph hurricane wind can make you just dead as that 110 mph tornado wind.

The point I'm trying to make is... don't encourage folks to leave for their own safety and then do the opposite of what you advise them to do. What kind of example are you making there. It's as asinie as encouraging people to take pictures of severe weather (tornadoes) and then send it in to your website. The point is to keep everyone safe.

Ratings - It was July afterall. Nothing special.

You may think that "ratings in July are nothing special," but I know I'd much rather read about the ratings than have to sift through another long, boring, preachy post, 2:49. You and your sock puppet at 7:41 need to knock it off. Far more attention has been given to this subject than necessary. Nobody cares.

 
At 7:15 AM, September 07, 2008, Anonymous Anonymous said...

You're absolutely right, nobody cares about anything that KARK has to say. However I must ask, why do you read these comments? Apparently YOU and your cronies at KARK do care because you provide more commentray on this blog than any other local station, otherwise you wouldn't comment.

Ratings in July where nothing special but if you wish... KARK still stinks most time periods but had minimal gowth at 6am. Lost at noon & 5p, flat at 6p and lost at 10p. KATV lost ground all demos AM, 5, 6 and 10 and THV lost at 10pm and gained 5a, 6a, noon and 5 and 6pm. July ratings aren't special because they're not taken seriously by the local stations who allow their anchors off during the book. Plus viewership is lower because folks are on Vaca.

And if it's any consolation to you - Congrats to Jancy, and Alyson for having their babies and to Christina and Dawn who will have their babies soon. I hope that calms your nerves a bit.
