NWA Reporter to Weather the Storm Again

Well it's true, the reporter who quit KHBS/KHOG/Fort Smith after being assigned to cover the aftermath of severe storms has been hired at KFSM/Fort Smith.  Jay Plyburn stormed out at KHBS/KHOG after not being appreciated for and/or being assigned a dangerous story.  Not sure what he will be doing at KFSM..but please don't let him outside he just might quit!

Obviously this thing was in the works before the big, dramatic exit. Be serious, people ... you know this game. He quit in a huff, like a diva.

But then, who really cares? Good for him. He'll be anchoring, and plenty of people in this market already like him doing that. Smart move on KFSM's part.

I'm sure 4029 will have a real tough time finding a college kid to fill his spot for less money and even less thanks...

I guess KFSM dumped Mitch Roberts for this pussy. The only anchor worth a damn at 5 News is Heather Lewis, and let's face it, she's no Mallory Brooks herself.

Just more of the same from a stationthat's so damn out of touch with the general public and reality, you can't do much but laugh.

They also replaced the weekend anchor (old dope) with a new, much younger dope.

Bravo, Van, way to keep running your station into the ground.

40/29's morning show is far superior as it is.

Jay drove the weekend ratings into the ground and that's part of the reason he was kicked to the curb.

By KFSM taking 40/29's unwanted leftovers, they are also taking the ratings hit that comes with him.

It's time to sit back and watch 40/29 get an even bigger gain than they already have.

29/40 sucks. KNWA is close to beating them, 5 has certainly seen better days in year's past, outdated and lame now. Who the hell is this Lewis family and how do they reproduce news talent? I doubt either would be successful in a bigger market.

KNWA is no where near beating 40/29. 5 is still number one, except in the morning. KNWA continues to decline, 40/29 up, 5 steady, but still winning. Don't pretend you know. I know because I work for 5.
As for Jay, he is indeed a wuss.

According to the Nielsen ratings Jay boosted KHOGs weekend numbers, beating KNWA and KFSM nearly everytime. His numbers didnt drop until their news dir. got fired and the format of everything suddenly changed.

Jay never actually quit his job as KHOG's weekend anchor. They canceled his contract, and told him to bounce. I bet they never expected him to become a fulltime anchor at the #1 station in the market.

The next few ratings periods should be interesting!

Jay, come on. You're pathetic. Quit pretending you made the ratings. You did boost numbers. Actually, the sunday evening news always tanked which is where you need to be number one. You are too immature to survive this business.

I'm watching Jay on 5News and wondering why he didn't bounce to a different market. It is tacky to see him move from one station in the market to another.

He can't go west. They grow big tornadoes over there in OK.

Jay is being bashed all over. 5 is the only pathetic station who would hire him after his little antics.

BEN WAGNER was the 40/29 anchor tonight and he was fantastic! This is from a 40/29 viewer. Hope 40/29 makes greater use of BEN as an anchor!

This guy is stiff. No sense of humor. and monotone as sh$t. Boring the viewers one at a time.

Hey Ch. 5, just let Heather and Joe do the mornings! at least they show some emotions.

I hear the numbers dropping like a rock.

My husband and I didn't realize they fired Mitch Roberts. We thought he might had moved to another state. I can't believe they fired him. He was so nice and always smiling. What ever he done could not have been as bad as Ashley Beck driving drunk. Apparently it was not illegal or we would have heard about it. Bo Mattingly was fired from 40/29 for driving drunk back in 1998. I am not saying that could not be forgiven. I am just saying why would they keep her and fire him?Doesn't seem right or fair. We will know longer be watching channel 5 news! Good luck Mitch with your new career and God Bless!

I think Mitch is the best sportscaster in this area. He knows sports and has the voice and personality for it. He is professional all the way. Good Luck Mitch I'll follow you when it comes to sports.

Just met Jay, the boy is a total sissy. I'll bet he plays flag football, except if it's raining then he won't go outside.

I like the KFSM crew but glad that they are still trying to find a third weather person with some on air presence, Joe and Garret are great. 4019 has a great weather team but never on when we need them and their anchor do leave much to be desired on the weekends. How about true comments here other than Red Neck slams that are obviously one sided.
