KATV Dedicates News Studio



KATV/Channel 7/Little Rock has dedicated its news studio to the late Dale Nicholson.  Nicholson spent more than 50 years at KATV, three decades of that as general manager.  A ceremony was held Thursday night at the station.  A scholarship has also been set up in Nicholson's name.  Watch the video of the ceremony above.

I am sorry dedicating that old basement studio seems to me more of an insult to his name. The Albrittion family donating $5,000 to a scholarship. They just sold all their stations for almost a billion dollars and donate a whopping 5k to a scholarship.

I completely agree with the above post.

Putting his name on a new facility would have been a greater honor.

And only $5K? Insulted him twice, huh?

I have not heard that there is a timeline for getting a news studio. So its better to dedicate it soon after his death. Plus, there is nothing wrong with carrying his name to the next studio, right?

At least Albritton gave something.

People on here are always looking for the negative.

I heard the city of LR did a dedication for him Sept 20, so KATV probably wanted to do something on their own the day before.

He did some good things for KATV during his tenure. Nicholson was very biased expressing and pushing his political views thru news story contents aired and his appearances on KATV.

The political views expressed on air were mandated by Albritton. I know, I was there.

Dale did what he wanted to when he wanted.

I was there for the political endorsements, too. He could have said no, he didn't. He didn't have the grapefruits to do it. He had raisins.
Later he said he was proud of taking a stand that no other station would.
