Surprise!



KATV reporter Jeannette Reyes received an on-air surprise kiss while reporting from Riverfest last weekend. The video was posted on Youtube and Reyes says,"A 15-year-old boy came up and kissed me while I was doing my live shot at Riverfest, Arkansas' largest festival. My photographer chased after him and made him apologize. I guess it made for good television!"

Compared to some other similar You Tube clips, this one is pretty tame.

I think she liked it!

She tried to give ol boy the chicken wing as he sidles up to her. Caught between professionalism and self preservation.

I think he got lucky she didn't catch em with an uppercut.

She isn't much older than him.

What a self absorbed thing to do! She puts it on her own page hoping it'll go viral? That girl is becoming a monster.

yeah, at least Dawn didn't post it herself in hopes of getting attention. this girl is ridiculous.

she should have blown it off in a humorous way and maybe she wouldn't seem like such a grouch. i mean, she said "unfortunately you can't get arrested for what that gentleman just did" come on. i bet no one will kiss her again

Awe, how cute. The kissing bandit just wanted a little sugar.

She's a headcase. Telling everyone at the station that networks are recruiting her. Give me a break.

She gets simple facts wrong on a regular basis and laughs it off. Proofing her stories has become a job of its own.

How is that possible? Every time I've seen her she was practically reciting a police report. Obviously, no one taught her how to write and from what others are posting it seems no one taught her how to truly report either. Pretty face. No smarts. Not a journalist.

No she is not. She is an attention hog. Nothing more.

Maybe she is a journalist like a photog is a journalist... can't write and we need to double check her facts, but she does leave the building and ask questions.

I was not sure which thread to place this under, but then decided on this one. Move over Reyes! The morning gals at THV were gorgeous this morning in their little black dresses. They looked youthful while still looking professional. Great look ladies. You two were the stand outs.

Thanks for posting Sarah F. The way to stand out is not to toot your own horn.

Wrong! Not Sarah or Ashley. I have been around TV and communication people a long time, and those two have a lot going for them: professionals who are trained and good at what they do (meterologist and journalist), hard working, young, and attractive. Nothing frumpy about them. Lookin good ladies and working hard-- keep it up!

4:09 You sound crazy.

Yes black is the perfect color for morning tv. WTF? Sarah is a joke, Ashley's rear end steals the show and needs its own cushion on the couch, Alyse is a former beauty queen turned anchor.....enough said, and Tom is a prick. Joey is their saving grace.

How are the new reporters at THV doing? Noticing a few unfamiliar faces.

Sarah Forter is Soo Hot she does wear black too much through Dawn does a really good job of mixing up her outfits

but Sarah Tipton my local weather person has been dressing sexy since she came back from Maternity leave

when she was first at the Station she wore normal things nothing sexy and she only had 1 dress Bule now she wears short skirts dresses and today a suit Jacket and her pj top

Just don't see THV 11 renewing Sarah's contract. Whoever hired her should be fired for their mistake. She's cute and probably a nice girl but hands down the worst on-air meteorologist in Arkansas.

@6:14 I could not agree more. They should be ashamed.

During severe weather, along with the dead air, Sarah was explaining what was happening and then said "I can tell you more once the information prints out." I'm not a met but I know she had to have just been repeating exactly what the NWS was saying. Am I right or am I mistaken?

6 14 6 29 9 45 PM u guys are most likely right on Sarah but i love her positive attitude and she has a smile that light up a room

I think Ed was at his child's graduation. He does have a right to be there even if there is severe weather, and Tom had already pulled more than a double. You know you just can't re-schedule some family events or severe weather. That said, Sarah is a meterologist and will learn. She has already accomplished a lot for as young as she is. She will improve given time. Everybody has to start somewhere and no experienced weather person in town was "severe weather perfect" with coverage when they began. Take it easy and give the newbie time.

Let's not get too off topic here from the headline subject.

The headline subject is boring. Let's discuss more of how bad THV blew the last weather situation. Who thought it was a good idea to let Tom leave? Really? THV still making awful decisions.

Still loves me some Sarah!

How many times have you heard an experienced meteorologist say, "We are awaiting the latest update from the National Hurricane Center"?
Maybe she was waiting for the warning information to print out?
Doesn't matter, they all rely on the federal agencies for most of their information.

Sarah is a meteorologist? I am a first year met student and know way more than her. She was a wreck during that tornado outbreak. 7 and 4 raped her, having fully staffed weather centers. SHE IS A JOKE. NO WAY SHE HAS A DEGREE!

She may have a degree but she still sucks. She even sucks when there isn't severe weather.

Please please please replace Sarah! Cute girl but she doesn't have the chops for a severe weather market. Pitiful

Keep Sarah. No station puts out warnings before the weather service.

Even Ed has long pauses of silence when he's covering severe weather by himself. They all wait for the weather service to make the call.

The other stations just have extra people on air to vamp with their "this may be happening" scenarios. That's all they can do from the station. Stare at a radar & speculate. Added value - none.

The only person that wants THV to keep Sarah.........is Sarah. No one takes her seriously at the station. It was a mistake not to hire Tracy Bean! Damn you Chuck M!

Sorry Tracy. Don't choke on the sour grapes.

It's a hoot when stations "have crews rushing to the scene" after a tornado. What's the rush? It's already happened. Are you afraid it will be cleaned up by the time you get there?

Of course, we always get to hear from the redneck who says "that tarnader sounded like a freight train when it knocked the Coke machine over in my yard."

Riveting television.

Does it even matter, who watches network television anyway? If I'm watching cable/sat programming, I'm not going to see any warnings.

the national weather service is the only agency that officially issues warnings....so i guess they wait for them

The Tracy Beene fans have arrived to the discussion. I wondered from where the hatred for Sarah was coming.
I also notice how there is no mention of Meredith. Very interesting.

Sarah is a weekend weather person so that's not a main position at any station. That being said, she's realllllllllly bad. And even worse out live if that's possible. Must be tough for her to be so far from home and not experiencing much success and growth here.

I was with friends downtown in a bar a few weeks ago when Sarah was filling in for Ed. We all had a good laugh at her stammering around trying to talk. It was ridiculous and made me even feel a little bit sorry for her. Do you think the job is just too big for her? Clearly she's not experienced enough.

Whos is Tracy Beene??? Clearly one guy has a boner for this girl. But who is she?
