First of all, congratulations to all the nominations!

Second, can someone explain why KATV submitted a *promo* for award consideration, but not a single on-camera talent nod? If one of your anchors wins or even gets nominated, you can put that in a promo and show how good your product is; if your promo wins or gets nominated -- what, are you going to run a promo saying 'look at how good our promos are'?!

I'm in disbelief that KTHV didn't win a nomination for weekend weather. Meredith Mitchell is the best/hottest anchor in the region.
She carries KTHV all on her own.

How the Hell did KLRT get a morning show nomination?

KARK pretty much did squat!

Wait a minute. I believe they had back-pack-goggle-boy on location during some rain and wind. Doesn't that count for something?

"How the Hell did KLRT get a morning show nomination?"


Back in February when severe weather was really active all the networks started their morning shows early at 4:30 instead of 5:00 cuz all the meteorologists in the market said the city was going to get snowed in. KLRT did a special edition morning show that day as well, with their normal nightside producer and anchor team. It's the only morning show they did all year, but only three stations in the entire region submitted shows for consideration, so they got the nomination by default.

6:16pm so if KLRT wins it doesn't count?

Of course it would count. It was a show in the morning time slot and it was nominated. That's all you need for it to count. Personally, I think it would be hilarious.

How does KAIT even go on the air. I didn't think they had running water much less electricity in Jonesboro.

Yalanda Young is hott at Kait so as long as she is there running water or anything else is not necessary. Maybe if she wore a bikini.

Am I missing something? Yalanda Young is a nice looking girl but she is nothing special compared to most of the women on air in Little Rock.

So basically KTHV swept the board in the market--right? 6 nominations? That's pretty good!

While all three of the other networks have been bringing home more hardware since KATV started its backslide, KTHV definitely seems to be surging forth the most. While I congratulate them on their success, I have to admit I lost a great deal of respect for them when Craig O'Neal moved over to doing news. I wouldn't mind if he was only doing the community journalism segment, but reading hard news stories is just too much. Call me old-fashioned, but I think you need to build up credibility in news before you move into that kind of role.

By the way, is anybody going to the ceremony in St. Louis in October? I and another producer from this station are going, didn't know if anybody else from the market will.

I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly...

6 nominations is great- but three of them are non news entries:
religion
historical doc
arts and entertainment

So what with the "non news entries." Who cares?? Shows KTHV is doing good coverage in every area. That's why they were nominated as well for News Excellence. I think that says a lot.

Meredith's Mitchell's belly button.
mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

Too bad Yolonda isn't nominated, her bikini top would fit that Emmy statue nicely.

Actually, they were all news entries - Religion & Arts/Entertainment were both 'Extras', and the Documentary was the Central High 50th special that also won a National Edward R. Murrow Award.

Just sayin'.

Meredith, or the Meredith stalker, get off this board and go learn something about broadcasting. Please. Pretty Please. Pretty Please with sugar on top.

KARK didn't submit much at all. The more you enter, the more your chances of being nominated.

Kristin Fisher sure has faded fast. She came out as the new hottie, now she's just a reporter. And wow, has that Melissa Dunbar Gates ever gone downhill!!!
