he didn't know what he was doing. he copied the forecast all the time. Not to mention he ended every sentence with an upper infliction...like omg a teenage girl. we won't even get into his attitude problems.

I liked Jason Adams. He was very personable and easy to watch. This is sad that he is no longer going to be with the station.

I am pretty sure this was by choice.

Ratings continue to tank on the morning show. For the second ratings period KFSM will lose to KHBS/KHOG on the morning show. That's major a problem. And in he is a drama queen and creates a cancerous work environment, yup they are going to get dump him.

Yep, just another sign 5 News is rapidly going to crap. I was never that wild about the on-air chemistry between he and Beck. And Mitch Roberts is a total goober. I guess they'll replace Adams with Joe Pennington? Seems likely; dump one dork, replace with a douchebag. Great approach 5 News.

They are going to make things worse in the evenings. It seems like Ashley Beck will be taking Ashley Ketz place.

Heather Lewis will be taking Beck's place in the mornings.

I can't believe with all their cost cutting they keep Mitch Roberts around.

Have you seen their horrible new sports show with Bo Mattingly on KXNW? It's beyond bad.

Management has taken a station that was by far the best in the market and is quickly turning it into the worst.


Ashley Beck on changes:
Ashley Beck-5NEWS Anchor Ketz is in Springfiield-loving it. Heather will do mornings and I'll do nights!

When the story is written on the decline of KFSM, it will be a study in inept, out-of-touch management.

Let's take a look at 2 recent examples. Management let Ashley Ketz walk....let me repeat, they let Ashley Ketz walk because they didn't want to pay her a fair market wage. They didn't keep the best news anchor they had because management wouldn't budge on money. It is almost criminal what they pay their people. Great model from a business standpoint of keeping salary cost very low and just blowing throw talent...while hanging on to viewers because it is the station everyone grew up watching.

Secondly, a few months ago KFSM got rid of John Engelman and Mike Irwin...then eventually let Jonathan Huskey walk out the door. And you replace those with what we see on TV now? TOTAL destruction of the sports department at KFSM. I thought I read where the management wanted to go in a new direction with sports?

I guess they did, cheap...no knowledge of the Razorbacks...terrible on-air. Two of those don't matter to management, just the cheap part.

In the timeline of the history of KFSM, this will be known as the era when management gutted the station, put sub-par talent on the air all in the name of saving money.

Such a shame.

It really looks bad for the sports department over at 5. Has anyone seen the 'Football Friday Nights'? What a joke! I had to watch something else it was so bad. Then I wanted to give it another chance thinking maybe I was too harsh and judgmental with that show.
Man was I ever wrong. Whose doing drugs over there and thinking "Yes, this is a good idea"!!.

It has the quality of a high school media department.

the real question here is when 5 loses morning again and they continue to lose ground on evenings to 40 at night in november who will take the fall and get canned?

the space-out general manager who cant make a decision worth a darn, or the news director that acts like a chicken with his head cut off during breaking news and weather, yelling and screaming at everyone. nonsense.

or will it be some new on-air additions that dont cut it?

5news is tanking fast. the question is who will jump ship before it goes under? been a lot so far

He is a cancer in that station. Terrible attitude. He is so full of himself he thinks he is the hottest thing in town. What a joke. He trashes the management all the time and others he doesnt like.

Emails addressed to all KFSM employees stated he would leave for a new job in Flint, MI in the next few weeks.
