Better Late Than Never....

An emailer says KTAL, Channel 6, Shreveport, will start doing its news in HD....in 2012. From what I'm told KTAL recently started airing syndicated programming in HD.

The only reason KTAL is going to start airing their local news in HD in December 2012 is because that is the federally mandated deadline. If they do the news change over like they did the master control change over, they will need an additional 13 days past the deadline to get it done.

Never heard of a mandate to go HD by the Feds.

If that's the case, then Channel 7 may finally go HD.

There is no HD mandate. The 3AM poster is confusing the deadline for cable companies being required to carry local stations on "analog tiers".

The 2012 HD news conversion for KTAL leaves a lot of room since Nexstar has a entire stable of stations to convert (KNWA/KFTA, KOLR/KSFX, KARD/KTVE, KODE/KSNF come to mind).

The one good to thing to come of out of LR switching KTVE/KARD is that KARD's feed on KTVE's digital subchannel (10-2) isn't stretchovision anymore. However, with FOX and Nexstar divorcing viewers may feel some pain if the network is dropped during football season since KARD carries the Saints instead of the Cowgirls.

So does KTVE and KARD have the same digitizing and dropout that KTAL's had since the Little Rock consolidation?

What's this about Little Rock wanting the local news production to run the breaks outside of the newscast from the local stations? That is master controls responsibility, but now that master control is now is in Little Rock they all of a sudden don't want to do it.

Hi Todd!
You're still an ego maniac.

That wasn't Todd. I wrote that. The only reason I watch 6 is because of him. And he isn't an ego-maniac.

Who cares about KTAL's news going HD in a year and a half. Are they ever going to fix the signal problems they've had for over a week now?

If you would put all this energy you use to bash your co-workers on this blog into improving your on air product your station would be #1 in this market.

That's right, and you can start by correcting this. Stop using that stupid news ticker. It's jacked up on the morning show, and they don't use it during the 5, 6, and 10. The audio isn't right on Brandon's and the reporters mic's, and the lights on the set are to hot. The camera shots need tightening up, and the stories need to match the over the shoulders. Also, you need to start doing follow ups on the stories you run.

Oh snap, KTAL you just got served!

Yes they did.

Why is it KTAL has job openings posted in the break room, but none of them are posted on the web page, arklatexhomepage.com, or on the Nexstar web site?

Not posting jobs is nothing new. They did the exact same thing when I worked there. KTAL is by far the laziest station I've ever worked for. From what I read on this blog, and from what I hear from my former co-workers who still work there, KTAL is worse off now then it was when I worked there. They are praying this possible Nexstar sale goes through.

Yes we are. This place is getting worse by the day and I can't wait to get a new owner up in here. Most of us are aren't waiting around and are actively looking for other jobs. This place has done a complete 180 since I first started working here and not in a good way.

To Questioning 10:40 AM August 4.
KTAL never posts job openings on the Nexstar web site. Most of the time we don't even post them on our own web page. If it were not for the posts in the break room the job openings would not be posted any where.

That sounds a bit illegal.

That's nothing. Wait till the FCC comes around next time. There's things going on now I know are illegal.

Yes they are and some of us are trying to get up out of here before it hits the fans.

Mr anonymous, this is Mrs. Orea. I have and never will use or the word Negro. I am sure staff and other clients were there also. When clients can't follow USDA rules I have to enforce them. You are lying and you should be ashamed of yourself. I feed and clothe or 200 families a month. Give your name and I will clear this up. I think I know who this is. But I am sure you will never stand up and give your name. Sad race is used when you can't follow the rules like we all have to.

I heard about this person lying about Miss Kathy. I know who this person is and she is lying about what happened. You are even lying about being a man. You were the only person she had to let go for months. Another person complained because she was serving another in the area. She keep you on because you were there before the rules changed. You should be ashamed of yourself. I know she really felt bad for you. Why would you do say terrible things about someone who did so much for you for such a long time. You made another terrible story to a website and she isn't associated with the company you wrote a review about. you called her racist?? Get your facts straight and get over it. There are 25 other pantries in Shreveport. They serve many black clients. You won't know because you were always late, and all the other clients were gone already. She stayed late for you to get your food and look for clothes.
