NWA Station Hires New Sports Head

KHBS/KHOG Press Release Mike Jacques joins KHBS/KHOG-TV (Channels 40 and 29) as Sports Director/Anchor and Reporter June 27th. Jacques will anchor and report on 40/29 News at 6 and 10pm and online at 4029tv.com.

Jacques brings 10-plus years of college and high school sports reporting talent to 40/29 News - most recently serving as a reporter for the University of Wisconsin Badger Sports Report, featured on several network affiliates and the Big 10 Network.

“Mike’s passion for local college and high school sports will be a great asset,” said 40/29 News Director Dawn Dugle. “He’s a unique story teller and we look forward to him reporting on the Razorbacks, University of Arkansas – Fort Smith and the outdoor sports our area is known for.” “Mike shows viewers the human side of sports, not just the scores and stats,” added KHBS/KHOG-TV President and General Manager Brian Sather. “I’m convinced that will resonate with our viewers.”

Known to viewers as “Jocko”, Jacques served as Sports Director in Wausau, Wisconsin at WSAW-TV where he became an award winning journalist for his work on "The Highlight Zone", a Friday night high school sports program. Jacques has also reported and produced sports for WMTV-TV in Madison and WISN-TV in Milwaukee.

Jacques is a recent graduate from the University of Phoenix where he received his Master’s degree in Business Administration, while previously he gained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and Mass Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Imagine that Fort Smith was mentioned in the release, although staff and management left long ago and could care less about anything going on south of Washington County.

I agree, what happened to Mark Lericos? Jocko needs to lose the nickname and the glasses which combined with his eyebrows and spiked haircut give him a picture made for radio. He may be a great person, but.....

Mike isn't bad, but not great either... The "word around town" is that their news director, Dawn Dugle, is bringing the station to the ground. I was told she's full of illogical and senseless ideas and she is probably the reason why they are in love with this new "live via the internet" crap...which basically involves showing youtube quality video (in an age where everything is in high definition), with broken audio, and a connection that almost ALWAYS cuts out. Doesn't make sense to me why they keep using it. If they continue to use this method, there is no doubt in my mind KFSM will continue to beat them in ratings...

I FEEL SORRY for anyone who has to work under DAWN DUGLE.

Dawn Dugle is as UGLY on the inside as she is outside. She's EVIL, the most INCOMPETENT news director I've EVER met, she treats her employees HORRIBLY, and she's the reason why 90 percent of KHBS/KHOG's newsroom staff has left.

A bit of advice for Anchors/ Reporters/Producers/Meteorologists, if you're looking for employment, and you happen to see the name "Dawn Dugle News Director" listed ANYWHERE, RUN as fast as you can and NEVER look back!

Believe me there's no amount of money listed on a contract worth working for Dawn Dugle.

I promise you'll regret signing any contract with her, I know I DO!

Dawn Dugle LOST HER JOB TODAY at KHBS/KHOG!!!! EVERYONE and I do mean EVERYONE at 40/29 NEWS is celebrating! Dawn DUGLE is the worst excuse for a human being. Dawn Dugle is the worst excuse for a news director. Karma is a B##$# and so are you DUGLE! If you're reading this, what you're experiencing RIGHT NOW couldn't have happen to a more deserving "person". If you have any chance of ever working again...Learn something from THIS!
