Changes Coming to KLRT Newscasts

Personnel changes arent the only thing happening at KLRT.  Arkansas Business.com reports Nexstar is making changes to the station's newscasts.  KLRT will no longer have newscasts at 5pm and 10pm.  The station will have a half  hour newscast at 5:30pm and an hour long newscast at 9pm.  

Mike Vaughn, general manager of KLRT/KARK tells AB.com, "The Nexstar and Mission stations will retain their respective evening anchor lineup: on KLRT, that's founding anchors Donna Terrell and Kevin Kelly, and on KARK, it's Bob Clausen and Jessica Dean."

WOW. Guess they didn't want fox16 and KARK to compete against each other---obviously.

This is great news for KATV and KTHV. Their ratings will go up and the ratings for KARK and KLRT will go down.

What is a bean counter to do if they don't have any beans to count?

Lower ratings lead to lower advertising charges which lead to lower revenue which lead to a lower quality product which lead to lower ratings and the cycle starts over again. In the words of Flo Rida, "Low, Low, Low"

This slow death spiral will be painfully agonizing to watch.

Good employees who lose their jobs for the sake of cost cutting are forever affected - sometimes good, sometimes bad - but the one who fired them continues on in ignorant bliss oblivious to their inabilities to manage the business.
