It's All About Little Rock

What an evening of severe weather! The Little Rock stations went wall to wall with severe weather coverage. There was lots of coverage of the Central Arkansas storms..but what about the other parts of the state? Believe me folks in South Arkansas watch the Little Rock stations more than the Shreveport stations because of the quality of the coverage. All of just ask is give us info please..

I saw a couple of local politicians on a Little Rock station being interviewed in a storm-damaged area. It's the first time I have seen either one out during a storm. Oh, well. Election time is getting near and free airtime is good.

I know...how bout you ask the Shreveport stations to do a better job, since it is THEIR area to cover. Just an idea.

The Shreveport stations don't care about south Arkansas. Whether it's weather, news, politics or sports...if it ain't in Louisiana, they don't care about it!

I live in El Dorado, and the NBC affiliate out of Monroe/El Dorado does a good job with south Arkansas. They'll cover warnings in Camden, El Dorado, Magnolia, Monticello, Hamburg, and those areas. Once you get up to Pine Bluff, Texarkana, Hope, etc.... they pretty much don't cover it.

They're the only station I can watch that cover most of the area without showing a whole lot of favortism toward any particular area.

I have no idea what you all are talking about. Shreveport's stations cover south Arkansas. If you have forgotten, KSLA breaks into coverage every time a Tornado
Warning breaks. You must remember, KSLA, KTBS, and KTAL cover Hope, Texarkana, De Queen, and Nashville. KTBS and KSLA cover El Dorado, while KTAL doesn't. They do NOT cover Arkadelphia, Camden, or Monticello. Why would they? No one there watches. Also, the comment of quality of service, Shreveport has a high-ranking market and has far better coverage than KTHV, KARK, and KATV.

I have only been in a position to watch Shreveport news once, so I don't consider myself qualified enought to talk about its quality, but I would not call them "high ranking." Shreveport is DMA 82. Yes, they're a top 100 market, but Little Rock is 56.

The Shreveport stations suck! The KSLA weather people don't know how to pronounce half the towns in the arklatex. Little Rock isn't much to write home about these days, but at least the weather people are professional. Channel 11 I think has the best in the Litte Rock market.

I think KTBS has the best coverage of all Shreveport stations. When the floods around Albert's Pike took place, they sent a crew up there even though that region isn't in the viewing area. Everyone can see what they like, but I personally do not like Little Rock stations.

Also, KTBS is the only station that I watch for weather because they feel local and are owned local. Not like KTAL (owned by NEXTAR) and KSLA (owned by RAYCOM)

What I like about KSSN is that they "tape and delay" which suits my listening habits.
