There's a New Player in the 9pm News Slot in Shreveport

This from a tipster: Not that anyone noticed, but KMSS, Fox in Shreveport, expanded their 10 minute news at 9pm to 30 minutes to compete with the KTBS 3 9:00 News Hour. I actually tuned in and thought the program watchable. Actually better than KSLA is you ask me. Also, they went widescreen. Not HD it looks, but SD. Still though, they beat KSLA and KTAL to widescreen.

Other stations like KTBS re-broadcast their news.

Isn't KTBS an ABC affiliate? You must be referring to the 9pm newscast on KPXJ 21 that is produced by its sister station KTBS.

As for the KMSS 9pm show, I checked the listings via TV Guide (online) and its called "Fox News Baton Rouge" so apparently KMSS is once again outsourcing its sister station in BR for its "local" newscast, ala Sinclair and its failed "News Central" format, and a recent failure by KMSS called "Fox News Louisiana".

Not only Francois? What happened to Begnaud, Webber, McCall. KSLA had the best reporter team in town just a couple of years ago...good and exclusive stories. Don't see that anymore. Here's some advice KSLA.. maybe you should get some real talent and dump the dead weights.

Begnaud went to Sacramento awhile back....don't know if he's still there or not. Can't say about the others except I think Francois got the door about the same time Bob Griffin and Duranzcyk.

Now Duranzyk is at KTAL (or used to be) and has no clue how to work their funky graphics.

Where's Michelle at KTAL? Did she go on extended leave or is she gone? I noticed the fill-in anchor didn't say she was "filling in" anymore.

How are the casinos in Shreveport? Are the slots loose? Thinking of making a road trip and want to know how it compares with Tunica.

I don't watch Television much.

I believe that is called "Stretch-o-Vision and is supposed to fool the viewer into thinking that they are broadcasting in HD Wide-Screen.
