More Blood Flows in Shreveport

This from a tipster: KMSS Fox 33 in Shreveport fires at least 5 staffers including all of local news staff, resulting in immediate cancellation of KMSS 9PM Daily Newscast.

Sources close to station say the KMSS 9pm News was winning in the ratings against KPXJ 9pm News ( which is a re-hash of KTBS 3 News with a different anchor ). Despite the decent ratings, KMSS sales dept. couldn't sell the 9pm and so it got the axe.

KMSS now offers a 5 minute newsbreak of a talking head from ComCorp of Texas' affiliate in Tyler, TX.

KMSS has always been a messed up operation for years. They canned the morning news because is stunk, their evening news smelled until they got anchor-blonde eye-candy prompter-reader: Crystal what's-her-face from Tyler. They had unique 9pm news brand opposed to KPXJ 9pm/Channel 3 news rehash and yet they couldn't sell it. Typical of KMSS. . . stands for Kan't Make a Simple Sale !

Nothing about KMSS makes since. Or should I say "dollars and cents". Just look at how many former KMSS/KSHV employee's are working at the other stations now.
