This from a tipster: KTAL will begin broadcasting most syndicated shows in HD by July. HD News will follow soon after that.

That will take place July 2nd with the hub shift to Little Rock which has all of the HD equipment they do not have at the stations in Shreveport and Monroe.

I had a chance to watch KTVE NBC 10 Monroe (Nexstar)'s newscast the other day. I must say, it is horrible! It makes KARK and KTAL look like they are in HD.

Yes, KTVE is horrible. Their studio is the size of the conference room in most other stations.

I have seen the talent for KARK, KTVE, and KTAL, and I must say, with the exception of Michelle, KTAL has the best looking talent of all three stations. Now KARK does have a much better signal then KTVE and KTAL, but their talent is not that attractive.

I don't know if the old building at KTAL can handle the HD equipment.

Of course the building can handle the HD equipment. It is Cold War construction that is basically an above ground bunker. With Master Control leaving you have all that space available. If you need more space you can open up the wall between Master Control and the empty office that was the old traffic office then Dave's office next door. That would almost double the size of what is now Master Control.

Yeah, and they'd have more room if they remove all the black mold from the building.

Call me crazy but I actually like the KTAL News.

Heck no! MeShell is terrible. Could the color of her skin be the only reason why she's on the air there! KSLA use to be the black channel, I guess now KTAL wants to be. She is horrible and needs to be gotten rid of!

Michelle isn't that good of an anchor. She's not on most of The time anyway, so it okay. I watch because Todd Wareen is one heck of a meteorologist.

That MeShell is horrid. KTAL is not a place to plan a longterm career it's a get in and get out kind of place. Some of the people they have now are good but some come from the School of Michelle White. Theres no in between its just good and bad.

Well management at KTAL was on crack when they hired MeeShell. Girl has more issues than Time Magazine! Funny thing is that if they thought she would attract black viewers...they were wrong. She doesn't have much cred with that demo, especially when she left KSLA to work on idiot Ed Bradley's failed mayoral campaign.

What was Michelle on last night? I DVR'ed the 10:00 pm newscast and she was horrible. The student anchors at BPCC are better then Michelle. If KTAL want's to better ratings they need to get better anchor.

Does any one know what happened to Heidi York? At least she she could read.

Someone said she's still in the ArkLaTex doing voiceover work when she can get it. So it sounds like she's basically unemployed. While she could read...she could've helped her career by losing a few pounds as she looked healthy on camera.

Listen sweetie, I've seen a number of on-air ladies who've had kids and managed their weight. Plus, TV adds about 10 or so lbs to you too!
If you expect to work in a biz where 70% of it is based on how you look, you better come to grips with it, hit the gym on a consistent basis and ease up on the fatty foods. Sure, some folks have a tough time losing weight but TV is a biz that favors the svelte so deal with it...or get in radio. This is true for men & women...and yes women have it tougher but that's the biz.

Wow, I'm so shocked at how prejudice is still the biggest issue today in the United States even with them being the most diverse country in the world. It amazes me how it took one person to start the fire of prejudice just because the woman on KTAL is BLACK, EDUCATED, and working hard for a living. Not to mention that she makes mistakes just like YOU and everybody else. She must be doing something right she's still there. Get over yourself its not helping your problem with black people to talk bad about anybody who doesn't know you or anything about you and probably doesn't care.

Have you ever watched Me-shell. She's awful, not because she's black but because of her news delivery. KTAL is desparate. Look at all of their other "talent". Todd the weather guy and Patrick are just about the only ones there that are any count to watch!
