The Weather Crasher....

Arkansas TV News hears while KFSM's Meteorologist Garrett Lewis was LIVE on location in Fort Smith a fan was showing him some attention while trying to drive AND BAM caused a crash. Seems he might have a new title there at the station.

I'm asking the same thing.

Where on the site is this posted? 5News can't sweep this under the rug, like they almost did with that Leprosy scare. Except this accident wouldn't be 5's fault.

Produce the video, people!

Viewer screamed:
"I love you Garrett Lewis" and then plows into another car. Classic.

Dan Skoff would never cause a wreck. No one would care if they saw him.

Isn't that the fantasy of every reporter who has had a live shot interrupted by idiots in the background?

I once wolfwhistled at Meredith Mitchell! She's the hottest thing going in Arkansas!

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

Meredith Mitchell has to do her weather reports in the studio, or she would cause mass chaos on the streets. Every male would lose their senses just to get within eyesight of her. She is sooooo hot.

I am SO SICK of the Meredith Mitchell comments. If it's not Meredith its a stalker, and either way something must be done.

I'm sick of the "we love Garrett Lewis" nonsense. Let's face it, if any local personality rode a bike into town with free t-shirts, then people would say "We love _____."

I'm over the bike tour.

It's too bad a simple bike tour rakes in the ratings. You may be over the bike tour .. just keep that in mind when you're out of a job cause your ratings fell even further .. because of a simple bike tour

How about a motorcycle tour.. with Anne Pressly.. in leather ????

I think the bike tour is the best thing that can be done by Channel 5. I have watched them for over 20 years and Garrett is pretty much the only reason I watch them. Once he is gone there won't be much left. At least they know this and throw their bread and butter out as much as possible. Although I admit I do watch a lot of the 40 news and sports as it is better no doubt. I wonder how long Garrett will stay here or do other things as I have heard rumored?

Garrett is too good for this market.

The good ones leave, why is Garrett still here?

9:53 -- I couldn't say it any better myself, and personally, I don't see anything why you should be jealous.

I'll be 9:53am is a woman and highly jealous of, not to mention threatened by, Meredith's beauty, talent, work ethic and general likability.

Ok, not in the biz, but read this blog just to get a couple of laughs every so often. However, "Stalker" really needs to give it a rest...I would suggest a full length black leather sofa, in a relaxing environment, one in which you would feel comfortable talking about your fixation with Meredith....

This is 9:53. I've never worked in the news department in my life. TV yes, News no. I just want a decent, semi-literate blog for Arkansas. For so long I've been sick of the Meredith Mitchell, three-legged chicken, and WINTER STOOOORRRRMMMM comments. Blogs can be great fun and a place for insight and venting safely at management. It's the juvenile comments that have me checking in here less and less often. That's all it was about.

100% Agree. That's why I suggested rest for "Stalker."

Having said that, what happened to the good ol' days when we were treated to "Where are they now..." I would like to know what Carolyn Long, Tony Ward, Sheila Crawford King (yes, I grew up watching 4) are up to...

DCG - can we expect this feature to return?

What's Garrett's new name?

I'm with 11:58am. I know DCG doesn't have time to go all Nazi on this blog, but yeah, show some respect, will yeah?

(And yes, I know, you can use the "we're free to say whatever we want" and "this is the only place we can talk anonymously" defenses... but come on, surely you guys are more intelligent than that? If not, at least, talk about it at the bar and not in a public forum.)

The person who admitted making the WINTER STORRMMMM comments was canned from a NWA station long ago. Don't you notice how the winter storm stuff stopped? I remember overhearing him talking about how his winter storm comments on the blog were soooo funny. I was busy at the time and pretended not to hear it.

But....the Meridith Mitchell and chicken comments are extremely annoying. I think it's the same person posting that stuff, just how it was only one person posting the WINTER STORRMMMM comments. Only one person finds these comments funny, and it's the author.

There is no video of the incident. It happened while Garrett was AT a live shot, not on the air.

This is, however, not the first wreck Garrett has caused recently...
