KATV Rollin' on the River

Many blog readers have noticed KATV has been broadcasting its evening newscasts from the River market. I'm gonna assume it was from their river market studios....but we all wonder why?

It's not all of their evening newscasts, just the 5PM.

Too little, too late! You can't save a sinking ship, and that station's going under.

Hopefully all the stations are getting an updated look (are you reading this THV?) With all the stations hype about going HD "soon".

No new set, just the crazy management trying to show corporate they 'need' the river market studios and to justify the cost of having it for more than just one show a day. It looks bad, and the lip sync is way off too. KATV will be the last in the market to go HD. Any guess who will be first? Perhaps THV? Maybe KLRT? Or even KARK? Who knows, but one thing is for sure, KATV will NOT be the first!

My guess: KTHV by the end of the year, KARK first of next year, KLRT soon after, KATV next May at best

Who is looking forward to a newscast on any local station in Stretch-O-Vision, at 720i?

Gonna have to get a good make up person or as someone said on here not too long ago, turn the resolution down on those dern hi-def cameras.

KARK in the next few weeks to the first part of Dec; KTHV by mid-Dec; KLRT Dec. 2011 and KATV 2012.

Honey, REAL HD is NOT STRETCHOVISION. I bet you are one of those types with a flat screen that streches their basic cable feed and chuckles about those "silly people still using antennas" for local HD---most of those OTA folk have either "cut the cord" or are supplementing cable/sat.

BTW, 720i is not a valid ATSC picture format. Its 720p and 1080i for OTA broadcasts with 1080p for BluRay and some sat services.

Rollin' on down the river....yeah like an old log! KATV has hemorraged (sp?)good people since October....wonder if its cuz of the crappy re-furb equipment downstairs that walked in the door two sizes too small, or the continual onslaught of more and more work, or after they looked around ans saw people jumping ship they gave us back our raises: but only 1.5% !!!!! KATV is an old tired broke down used up used-to-be-number-one station. R.I.P.

Baby doll, actually I have a Sony Wide-screen and receive my HD over-the-air with a Log Perodic pointed toward Shinall Mountain. Was using a cut, tuned Yagi but find the Log is better suited due to its wide bandwidth and the VHF and UHF differences in frequencies that are being used by Little Rock television stations. I use sat (Free-to-Air) to receive most anything and you could not pay me to waste my money on cable or DTV or Dish. That's about it, Babe.

I am sooo glad that I don't hafta work there anymore with all the brown-nosers and smoke-blowers down below...with 2 or 3 notable exceptions from that department. With all the boobly-booblys,squirrels, chins, and fangs down there its not surprising that the rest of them were tryin' to get out!
