Inquiring Minds Wanna Know.....

This from a tipster: I noticed that Tracy Douglass bio has been taken down from KARK's website. Did she get Nexstar's swinging ax? Did she leave on her own?

I bet they canned her. They need all the help they can get paying for that new HD set and equipment. Recently all they had her doing was the dialing for dollars and those 5 minute infomercial.

My question to 4 is how many news anchors do you need to do a morning show. It just seems 3 anchors is to many. Have one of them out in the community. You say we "are part of your community" well get out there in the morning cover it.

. . . and try to get it on the air and not duplicate the fiasco that occurred recently at 5 and 6.

Maybe she went to work full-time for that doctor that molds your eyes.

Will Gentle Molding still be on the air? That is riveting, must-see TV.
What recent fiasco at 5 and 6 are you referring to?

Contract wasn't renewed, but she'll still do freelance for them.

Yeah, technology is cool but a glitch in the video servers can be a bitch.

Agreed, but there are "mental" malfunctions as well as "mechanical" malfunctions. In this case, what I saw was mental.

We had no idea there was such wisdom, such amazing insight. Thank you for blessing us all. It would amazing if you could work at KARK to save the station.
Then again, maybe you do work at KARK.
Regardless. Get to work punk.

Ha, that's funny. It's not just at KARK. Sir/Madam, if you work in broadcasting you don't have much wisdom to begin with. I did have the wisdom to get the hell out years ago, and, by the way, draw some retirement from it too.

Will miss looking at Tracy.
Ulike so many of the newbies, she's a "woman" with a real figure and true sex appeal.
She's also a good on-air talent ... but her looks and non-bulemic body are what stand out to me.
Remember when she was just getting started years ago at KARK.
Just curious, how many times has she been married?
Agree with you on the KARK morning crew - too many hands on deck.
Also, most of the reporting crew at KTHV belong in Jonesboro or Fort Smith market; very raw and unpolished.

Tracy has a "real" figure? You've GOT to be kidding me. Nothin real about it.

And No one in this market looks bulemic. What a hoot!

Tracy looks like a cougar with too much make up and her hair is too big.

Her clothing is fine, but not on air. To 'wanna be cool'

There are a lot of thin girls in the market, I can say I've seen 90% of them in the field, none of them are unhealthy skinny, some just naturally thin.

The only person in the market who doesn't have an attractive type body is Liz Massey and it shows in her face.

Thin girls are not for everyone, but big women on air are distracting.

Is there something in thv contracts about weight or something because Liz's suits are looking really tight around her arms and a lot don't button.

One thing that is sad to me is that Tracy was in some ways the last remaining on air link to KARK glory days of the 80's.

Sure they still have Dave Woodman working part time. But he is used very little on air.

When was the last time you saw a close up of her?

I'm curious. Did she get bumped by MS?

Who ever you people are, you are all rude. I don't think that anyone that anchors is fat, especially Liz, she is very attractive both on the inside and out! Maybe you should all get to know some of these people and you can see beyond the exterior of a person and see the true person. I also know Tracy and she is a kind person as well.

I like a woman with a little meat on her bones. As for the Ch 4 mornings...get rid of the one who can never pronounce words correctly.

Who can not pronouce their words correctly on 4? I don't watch 4 because they have to many anchors sitting around the desk.

Hey, the bigger they are, the better I like 'em. There's just more to love and a big woman will keep you warm in the winter and shady in the summer.

Pull back to a wide and get 'er all in.

"It's shallow, but it is true. Viewers don't know the anchors personally, so they are more judgemental about the way they look on air. Knowing this is true, I think anchors should take pride in the way they look and put a lot of effort into it whether it's loosing weight or otherwise. It's expected in that business."

I believe that Tracy trained Beth Ward when she first came to KARK back in the late 60's as Tracy was the elder of the two and new the ropes pretty well. I expect to see Tracy on some of those retirement home commercials. She does a good job and we will miss her daily on the Noon show.

Tracy Douglass and Beth Ward names should not even be used in the same sentence. Beth Ward's talent and class outshines Tracy anyday.

How many ex's does she have now? Then she was engaged how many times.

Tracy has a heart gold! Sure she got stuck doing those stupid infomercials, but when she got to do be herself on the morning and noon show, she was personable and fun to watch... and beautiful!

Loved the comment by the KARK female at Riverfest at 5p today. She said that some of the featured entertainers were REEE-O Speedwagon. Not REO Speedwagon. Maybe they have changed their name.

So much for research.

I do not work in the business. I do not think a person mispronouncing or misspeaking is due to the lack of research. I think we all misspeak once in a while.

I think it's due to lack of education and experience.

It is due to lack of research on her story material. If a person is reporting, they need to be educated on the subject they are reporting on. Also, this is the result of hiring a young, inexperienced reporterette and not misspeaking.

Loved it on the Noon show today on THV. During one story, the woman news reader said, "A fight had broke out."

Is this person a high school graduate? Who is writing the copy for the teleprompter and robotic cameras?

Question: How many camera operators does it take to do a live show at KTHV.

Answer: One.

Ah . . . downsizing. Get out of broadcasting while you can, folks.

Yes she did. Wonder if she writes her own copy? Thank the Lord for DVR's so you can back up and play it again.

Sounded like some of the public school English teachers these days.

Can someone tell me what happened to Jancey Sheets on KARK? I just tuned in one day & she was gone
and Jessica Dean had replaced her.
Did Jancey get fired? Promoted?
