More THV'er's Leaving...

This from a tipster: With the news that Charles Crowson left, I heard from a reliable source that Ebony Monet and Katherina Yancy are not renewing with Today's THV in Little Rock.

Their contracts are up at the end of November.

One of Charley's co-workers told me they were only willing to give hime a 2-percent raise.

If that's all they are willing to give those two girls making minimum wage then they don't have any other option.

Imagine trying to hold someone to a non-compete if you're not willing to pay a cost of living raise to them when they're at the poverty level,not to mention wanting to lock them in for 3 years. Cheapscates, rakin in the dough from all that political. Shame on them. I guess it means a big bonus for their gm who must be able to sleep at nite? zzzzzzzzzzzzz $$$$$$$$ zzzzzzzzzzz $$$$$$$$$

I doubt Katherina is leaving. A few weeks ago when some of us gathered in a corner to chat, peoples contracts came up. someone asked her if she was planning on leaving. She said she didn't even have a resume tape.

I think Ashley will leave before her.

Something else that isn't a secret is that Dave, her husband will leave before her too. I don't know how they can both work there and make a living.

No matter where any of these 20-somethings go, they are not going to get paid what they are worth. That's just the business.

What they did to Neil, they did to Charlie and they are going to do to Ebone, Ashley and everyone else on the chopping block.

The only people worth keeping are Dawn, Craig, Ed and Tom.

Anyone else can forget about being treated like they are wanted.

I do think Mark Edwards should take Charlies spot.

Larry is evil. He is so evil it is laughable. He cares about no one. Chuck is spineless, and worthless. Nice guy, but scared $h*tless of Larry. I hate watching the 2 of them run the newsroom into the ground. It is so sad.

THV empolyees deserve WAY better than this. It's a nightmare.

Ashley would have been gone a year ago if she found a job. Someone close to her says she is looking real hard right now and she only signed a 6-month contract this year.

I think it's messed up she begged to take one of the two days Mike Duncan anchors even though she has both feet out the door.

Is it really that bad at THV? I heard it's a pretty fair place to work...Is it just the two managers you mentioned who are running the newsroom into the ground? How can they have a man with the title of news director and he doesn't have any authority? Is that what I'm hearing? Why would they have a guy running the place if he doesn't care? Is that a corporate cookie cutter deal? Where is he from? sorry for all the questions I've just started coming back to this blog.

Mark Raines was a good news director, like the guy before him, Lane. Mark stood up to Larry and acknowledged that Larry's ideas were for the most part ridiculious and designed to make him, Larry, look and feel in charge, like the decision to make Nick an executive producer. That is comedy at it's best. Larry's moves are a sign of low self confidence and a sign he's got no humility....he'll get it at least once in his life, but not soon enough.

thv has great people that work there. What's sad is to see hard working people get hurt by bad decisions, and a lack of empathy.

None of these managers would last a day in an mmj's world. The stress and the workload can be rediculous... and oh yeah... how about a pathetic paycheck?

You have to be willing to fight fight for your employees if you want to keep them.

What gets me about THV is none of the managers are actually in the newsroom watching how stretched thin they really are.

You may have the bodies, but you don't have the right amount of people per job.

Who decided to fill photog jobs with MMJs? They are different jobs and photogs are seriously needed.

The people who work in the newsroom and want to put on a newscast are stressed and feel it.

You hit it ont he head, Larry is/was envious of the success of Lane and Mark - tow of the best ND's to come out of the place. Well both are now out of Gannett if that says anything. Gannett has never really cared about its people. A Gannett shop used to be a great job, people wanted to work for them, however time's have changed and you're just a number. A very low one at that. Keep in mind their main goal is to make money - and not to pay folks a fair living wage. ALL of the money is sucked up the corporate ladder where it is then distrubet into the back pockets of Gannett higher-ups in the form of BIG Bonuses at the end of the year. That's the way a corporation works. The poor get poorer, the rich get richer. But that's corporate for you. As far as being a fair place to work, if you're a main-line anchor it's fair if you;re a MMJ, photographer, producer, work in operations, or any other underling it's not. As for Larry, if he can continue to bring in ratings and money, Gannett will not care that 88% of the people working there loathe him. It's about the bottom line, and that will never change. What will, are the people. Here's some advice. You should NEVER leave a market size 70 to come to a market size mid-50s and take a cut in pay! Do not believe the LIES that are being spewed from the GM's mouth about how Little Rock is a Grand place to live with a lot to offer and that's why you should take LESS money to work here. You should get at least a 30% raise to come here to work. Not a 30% cut!

She is fine on Sunday's but the reason she can't find an anchor job is because she doesn't have the look or presence.

2 percent raise for those whose contract is up. That's not going to fly with anyone. Especially those that don't even make 30k a year. I'll bet Charles wasn't even making 35k, and he's a freakin anchor.

Isn't that like a $600 or $700 raise? Who would advise anyone to sign for that? It's business... bad business for thv and Gannett.

Just watch as it unravels.

Little Rock used to be such a good news market. We were a market that was a model for other cities our size--even higher. Lots of great talent used to come from here.

Not that Charlie isn't a good talent, but I thought he was pretty bad as an anchor. But, he's bright enough that with some good mentoring in Baltimore, you'll see him in a big job in a few years. He does need to learn not to close his eyes when he shakes people's hands, though. Really creepy when people do that.
Larry Audass wouldn't care if 100% of the station loathed him. the true Lord, Most High Jesus Christ talks to him personally, that's all that matters..

Yes, you are right about being the best looking morning show, but not for long.

I wonder how viewers are going to feel with all the musical chairs and the reporters who are leaving in the next few weeks.

And one last thing, if Tom did leave they would need to start playing infomercials instead because no one will watch.

THV isn't trying to hold onto anyone as long as their ratings are average. Their bottom line is money, not who is worth it.

They are in for a rude awakening.

As a weekend anchor, Ashley is not the one who decides if there is to be breaking news about Mike Duncan being fired. It is fine that you won't be watching again, but understand she reads the news -she does not create the news. Sadly, Mike himself is responsible for that news. I know personally that she did not want to do that story. She felt awkward and ashamed she had to read it. She feels pain for Mike Duncan. I am certain she understands that in these hard economic times it is hard to find work especilly when a public personality has something as sad as an arrest that is broadcast.

Personal trials like sickness, job loss,faltering marriages, low paying TV jobs, and bosses we don't like can bring pain but can also bring growth and blessing in our lives. Just for the rest of this week of Thanksgivng, may I suggest that the bashing stop.

You know perhaps some of you should go back to school and start your journalism training all over again. The irony is a journalist is suppose to source his information and double check his facts for truthfulness. Most of what is on here is simply gossip unsourced and unreliable information at best. Where is the fact checking? Before you start making accusations, perhaps the reporters making these claims should be making a list and checking it twice before labeling people naughty or nice. Case in point, one of the bloggers mentions Charles being arrested. Get the facts, straight--he is in Baltimore. Where is the fact checking? Some complain about poor reporter pay. Maybe the reason you are so poorly paid is because gossip doesn't pay. Maybe you are being paid exactly what you are worth. If the pay is so bad and you are so unhappy, why not get another job? As journalists you lack ethics and professional integrity and perhaps your skills are simply not good enough to be hired in bigger markets. You sound petty. Remember what goes around comes around. It is just a matter of time before your life becomes fodder for the fellow gossip mongers on this blog. How were you able to give thanks yesterday?

To the person above, I am thinking of this issue as a parent.

You put your child through school to follow their dream and then they actually get a job in the business only to find out they will never get their student loans paid off at that pay.

Then, they have to Multi Media task, or whatever that is. So they are doing three or four jobs and getting paid minimum wage. They are traveling alone and bringing back the same story as someone who had help from a person doing the filming.

This is ridiculous. I had no idea THV made their employees do this. You are telling me those small girls have to carry all of that and the pressure. THV should be ashamed.

If these reporters were not following the rules and checking facts, they wouldn’t have a job. I have never seen any of them report gossip.

I think they have a case when talking about poor pay and they obviously are not being paid what they are worth. And they can get paid better, look at Charles. I saw on the other blog he left because of the pay.

Look at the world we live in, it’s not as simply as walking away from a job. It may be little pay, but it pays the bills and they might not be able to find another job.

I want to say I don’t want to watch THV after hearing all this, but it’s because of the management, not the reporters.

Charles did leave because of poor pay. And yes, they should be paid more, and yes young girls should not have to carry cameras and be out on the streets alone covering stories.However, many on this blog don't get the stories straight when they blog about fellow workers personal lives and why people transfer or get fired. As reporters they should know to double check facts and not gossip. They have every right to complain truthfully about working conditions, but why bash the co-worker who is also being poorly paid and overworked. Leave peoples' personal affairs out of the blogging. It is unprofessional and petty. You are professionals.

KTHV is run by a corrupt and unethical corporation - Gannett. Any company that requires every employee to take a 10% pay cut and furloughs "for the good of the company" and then the upper execs provide themselves with HUGE bonuses and the end of the year has a screw loose. Then to loose good employees because they won't give them a freakin' COL raise so they can pay their bills? They the execs are greedy and immoral, and unethical.

Pearson left KATV in 1993, people. That would make it nearly 18 years ago. However, KATV, aka Dale Nicholson has hated people for less for longer periods of time. Pearson left for a better job and to get under the other "interesting" ND this market has had-- Jim Pitcock.

The thing you had to say for Pitt is that the guy knew--and knows his news. There's not much about Arkansas he doesn't know. His people skills are what his issues always surrounded. Sometimes he was just a mean son of a gun, and you had the feeling he took a lot of pride in that. Same as Nicholson...

Audas is a bigger jerk in many more ways and he knows little about this state and doesn't want to know more. He's above it all.

I've always wondered how you can justify acting like the arrogant p^#ck that Audas is and still think of yourself as Christ-like.

Andy probably left THV in 2007.
I think 2006 or 07 is when Dawn came back and within weeks he was gone.

They practically pushed him aside.

Dawns kid is probably 3 and she was about to give birth when she came.

She didn't come back to THV, she came back to anyone who would bid the highest.

And now she is one of the best paid for a part time job. That is nothing against her, just smart as hell, but I feel bad for all the little people without a voice.

Larry is/was threatned by Andy. Besides, Andy didn't play well with the 10PM news producer at that time, who is now the EP! Smell a conspiracy here.

Well, maybe there were a lot of people at the time that contributed to andy's departure. We knew he didn't have long when they made him stand in the newsroom and read news.

Degrading when it seems like you're not welcome in the studio or on the desk. I would be pissed if I were him.

News is Ebone Monet from THV cleaned out her desk, is that true?

I didn't see her on the air today and she works Monday - Friday.

She would be stupid to resign. When she moved to Little Rock it was a lateral move and the pay wasn't any better.

She has been here 3-years and doesn't have anyone or anything here, not even a car.

If she signs, it will probably be for 6-months while she kills time looking for a job.

THV hires MMJ's right out of college or unemployment hoping they will improves over the next year.

That's how they get away with paying minimum wage and then hold them hostage under three year contracts.

Yeah, the kids need an in into the business, but once they have given those years of service the company won't raise their pay to sign again for another very LONG three years.

What they will run into is MMJ's will wise up, know they are worth more and they will not sign again.

But Ebone isn't an MMJ, how did she get hired?

Ebone was hired during the MMJ craze, but I heard they were being pressureed to hire a black person so they hired her.

Now that they have a new contract waiting for her to sign, I wonder if they are going to change it to an MMJ contract because it isn't fair that everyone else does it and she doesn't.

Ashley isn't an MMJ either and she won't do it.

THV has never had a problem with "diversity." The problem is hiring good reporters that are black, white, hispanic etc.

but now it "seems" like all their reporters are black.

I kid you not, on many occasions you will see the anchor pass it to BJ, then Faith, then Ebone and then Stephanie.

I was taken back, I had to remind myself that they had diversity.

You have to show faces that coincide with the states population, but that is over kill. 50-percent of Arkansas is not black.
