That figures. They just produced new openings for all of the newscasts, and had Diana in as the weekend anchor.

Really sug? So why was she a "ticking time bomb"? And what about the budget. If they can not afford Diana then why did they interview a new co-anchor last week? There must be enough money in the budget to pay him.

KTAL News opening? Does a banner that says "this is NBC 6 News" count?

So just exactly what did Diana do for you to claim she is a ticking time bomb? I have not seen her head shot on the cover of The Inquisitor like Maria, Rustin, and Joe were.

Yeah, what is that all about? Diana could not be any worse then any of the other freaks we work with.

Yes, tell us. I have been asking around the building but no one is talking about it. Not even the ones who always know everything.

Maybe you should take the money you were paying Diana and fix your equipment. Your newscasts are messed up every day, and you have not had the Powerball and Louisiana Lottery for a week now.

How is KTAL still allowed to operate? You are worse now then you were under the old ownership. And whats the deal with those fake HD graphics you put up during the newscasts? You are not faking any one with that.

What is going on over there? Have any of you seen KTAL's newscast? There are so many visible screw ups, plus Michelle getting lost in the script it is embarrassing to watch.

Getting back to Diana. What did she do for you call her a "ticking time bomb?" Did she go off on you? Did she have a melt down on set?

First of all you should considering taking a grammar lesson. Secondly you sound like you work at the station so if the station is that bad why don't you find another place of employment?

So how long did Diana work there? I don't remember seeing her.

Diana has a history of blowing up when things doesnt go her way. I worked with her before and should know.

So did they know about this when they hired Diana? I only saw her a few times. She reminded me of that reporter you use to have there named Maria. Her last name started with a V.

Off the subject a bit. Do any of you know what happened to former KTAL anchors Lane Stone and Shannon Slatton? I meet them a few times and they were as nice in person as they were on air.

@9:01 pm. Just google Lane and Shannon. It appears Lane is in Abilene and Shannon may be in the Twin Cities.

Now back to your regularly scheduled blog.

Your racism and animosity towards your former station reeks through your comment.

I was down in Shreveport for the 4th and caught some of the local news. KSLA and KTBS were OK, but KTAL has the weakest news I have seen in years. Now I understand why everyone slams them as hard as they do. Everything about KTAL is weak. The talent. The set. The graphics. Everything. And what's the deal with those HD graphics? The news is not in HD, but they have these HD graphics they put up during the news. All of us should thank god we don't have to work there.

Your right about KTAL, but saying they are "weak" is a being very kind. They are a joke in this market and we do not consider them competition.

WIll KTAL ever hire a co-anchor for 5,6, and 10? You have not had a co-anchor for like three years now. What's the deal? Is your budget so tight you can't afford one?

If i had my own station,there would be no stars.Just people reading the news.
That is what people want.No great intro like it's a great tv show.And no expressed opinions about the news.Just read what happened today and get off the air.It would then be time for Sea Hunt.

4:29 KSLA and KTBS are just as bad as KTAL. I have friends who work at all three stations and they call complain about the same problems. KTAL has problems, but those other stations are just as dumpy. In Shreveport people choose their news by the lesser of the three evils.

They had a chubby girl telling the news this weekend wonder if she's related to Heidi York.

11:18 I don't know and I don't care how the stations in your market are run, I was referring to on air product. Compared to KSLA and KTBS, KTAL has the worst on air product in your market. I'm sure all three Shreveport stations are just as petty and just as back stabbing as our stations here in Little Rock.

When I was down there no one I talked to watches your station. They all watch KSLA or KTBS. After seeing all three stations myself, and researching the Shreveport ratings, I see why KSLA is ranked #1 in your market. Unlike KTBS and KTAL, KSLA also has very few postings on this blog. KTBS and KTAL come in 1st and 2nd on blog comments.
