Why have a high school football show at 9:30. Most games don't end until right at ten.

Channel 4 was making some headway. Nexstar has now turned it into crap.

KARK/KLRT "We are a local station with no local sports" And, we don't air Wheel of Fortune. So, the old people that would watch us don't. Brilliant strategy. Just brilliant.

I'm sure dozens of viewers are anxiously waiting for the 10 second highlight of the one school they are waiting to see in the sportscast, after wading through the rest of the teams they don't give a flip about. Or they could just wait until a kid puts a real game synopsis on youtube tomorrow.

Wess Moore is on Fox 16 now?? I thought he left THV to do radio??

Wess is doing both radio and television right now.

Have been away from Arkansas for awhile now, and I was wondering if Alyse Eady is still the star of morning show TV in Little Rock. With her talent and beauty, I can't believe she will be around Little Rock long. Hiring her was one thing Audas did right.

My favorite morning show personalities are Alyse and Tom at KTHV and don't get me wrong, Ashley is pretty solid now too. And I love Greg at KARK. Chris Kane is the home run from KATV. I'd say Chris and Alyse are the two young ones that have bright futures in this biz.

Alyse? That's funny.

She was a great hire. Does any one know how long THV contracts are for?

My guess is 2-3 years. Rumor has it everyone is dropping like flies.

Wess Moore is one of the best sports people in Little Rock. The idiots at THV let him walk and look what they have now.

yes, they are dropping like flies at thv. they have lost 5 people out of the newsroom and 4 people in the sales room. A couple of them really big hits. They have been trying to hire for two years and nobody wants to go there because of the poor management in all departments.

I know who the big hit was at KTHV in the salesroom but who in the newsroom? Do you know something we don't?

I heard it was Jessica Duff leaving to go to radio? Or it could be Stefane Bryant?

Wait, am I understanding correctly? Are you saying that the losses of Stefanie Bryant and Jesica Duff are big hits, as in THV will suffer because of their departures? Where did Stefanie go, and are you sure Duff is leaving?

THV has had an anchor opening posted for about a year. Who is going Craig, Liz, Dawn? Here is the question, are they looking for a male or female anchor?

Who do you all imagine watches Friday night football? The people that care are at the game and often recording it themselves. The stat junkies are listening to radio and following along on the web because it's real time and more in depth. Kids make their own highlight reels and load them on their favorite site so they can be viewed by more people for a longet amount of time. Let's face it, it's a lot of time, people, and money wasted on a product no one wants or cares about

As a sales person, I can tell you it has become very difficult to get sponsors for the Friday night football shows.

You must sell for THV

Actually it's across the board and really all across the country. 10:02 nailed it.

It used to be one of the easiest things to get big name sponsors for. Now the door slams.

It's this crazy new invention they call the "web" and "social media". Has anyone heard of them?

KFC used to sponsor KATV's tailgate parties...I had heard that was always one of the easiest sales they made every year...That went away a couple of years ago. Highschool football just doesn't have the appeal it used to.

To the sales people who visit this blog: what are the easy to sell shows and on which channels? I don't work in TV but I'm anxious to know popularity between stations and shows. I would think Friday night football would be an easy sell. I guess I'm wrong.

You are going to get varied responses on that one. Selling strategy is different at every station. The reason high school football has become harder is more about how much we used to be able to charge for sponsership. Companies don't see the cost effectiveness of the amounts we want for it anymore.

We can see how important sports is to KATV. All the hogs turn blue on Saturday? You have lost all credibility.
And way to criticize Jen Beliema, Pederson... here is a tip: don't pick a fight with a hot chick, she'll win. And she did.

Pederson v Jen? Do tell!

Oh the 7 "sports department" is a joke. KARK is obviously much closer to the program. Sully is a well known idiot and the guy on the weekend is obviously not a real sports enthusiast. Compare them to the razorback nation guys and if you were the university, you'd pick KARK too.

Pederson tried to call Jen classless on facebook and twitter, he got slammed and slammed hard.

KATV employees got a note from the news director this morning. I'd be surprised if anyone tweets anything off the clock from now on.

While we are on the subject of stupid KATV people, can you pass it along to Erin Hawley that her "know it all" attitude is embarrassing to the rest of us when we are on shoots. Really. The expression on the interviewees faces after they endure her questions is hard to wipe off in the edit bay.

Amen. If I were a photog over there, I wouldn't move an inch more than I had to if I was on a shoot with her. The way I hear her talk to them like she signs their checks or something, I'd let her know she is not - The hard way.

Since I'm required to tweet on the clock, I make sure I do not off of it. They aren't paying you at home, so don't do it for free. Lesson learned, Pederson.

Nearly every small town with a football team has a radio station that broadcasts the game. Most people that are interested listen to the game.

No need to wait until nearly 10:30 to see the results on TV.
