Live at Five From Where....

Does KATV still have its River Market studios?  I am watching Live at Five for the first time in months and they are at their main studio location.  I thought they used the River Market for their morning...9am...noon and 5pm newscasts

They haven't been over there for their 5 for many months.

They were there and have been there on their Saturday morning shows.

Seems like at waste with no more use than that. What will Sinclair think of that?

Will heads roll when they find out?

I'm sure Sinclair will clean house when they find out they are not there at 5.

I heard from one of their reporters the other day that KATV employees are cleaning their own house. There is no producer for the 5, 6, or 10 shows?

That's true. All left and management seems to have a horrible time replacing them. Two of the positions have been open for a pretty long time.

I don't think Sinclair was ever going to get rid of producers. I understand why they headed for the door though. Any on air reporter who leans to the left should find his way out too. Sinclair will force you to do conservative reports.

Oh good lord. Rats from a sinking ship? Please....... You guys have been predicting the demise of KATV for years now. How's that worked out for you?

As long as the anchors don't have to produce their own shows things will remain the same.

not hating on channel 7, but when Sincliar takes over things will change drastically and ratings will suffer.

That could be true.

Or it could not be. No one really knows, everyone is just assuming. It would not make a lot of sense to come in and change a bunch at a station that dominates the market and is profitable. They may or may not change a lot, if KATV brass doesn't even know what's going to happen I'm pretty sure you don't either.

Producers, reporters and anchors. Just like any other day. Don't believe everything you read, It's not exactly the end of the world over here.

Showing Sinclair how they can get it done with less people, which is exactly what they want to hear.

1:07 PM, people are just going by what Sinclair has done at every other place they have bought. It's not a secret. Thinking KATV is some kind of exception is pretty arrogant and foolish.

I can already see quality slipping.

Yes, I see the slippage in the November ratings, wait, KATV won everything, again....

With all that winning you must be able to pay the troops really well. Oh except you recently had a photog cross the street because he got paid like a bus boy.

Yeah with all that "winning" who needs losers? Enjoy your ramen noodle dinner over there and keep on "winning" ;)

You ratings freaks scare me. Why do you care so much about them? They don't mean anything to your pay or job security unless you are perhaps a main anchor or news director. The rest of you who are probably doing the work get nothing out of it. Go nuts during the book if you want to, but I hope you are just doing it to get a resume together for your next job. You will not be rewarded for your efforts here.

KATV most certainly does still use the Rivermarket studio for Saturday Daybreak. As a matter of fact, very recently they almost dressed out their whole "O-line" with Renee, Janelle & a weekend appearance by Mel who was not on vacation for once. All they needed was Marine to fill out the roster...

9:48 If you think ratings don't count, you must be new to the business. Ratings sell ads, pay salaries and indicate changes that need to be made.

Hi 12:33, I didn't say they don't count. I know all of that. The point was if you work in the newsroom they don't mean much to you and your life one way or the other, unless you are an anchor who has a clause in your contract that says you get paid more if they are good. Everyone else just gets the same pay no matter what.

The only people who think ratings aren't a big deal are the people who never win them.

That is very true. As a lifelong worker bee in a newsroom, I can say I just do my job during ratings periods. There is no reason to go above and beyond. Management will try to act like you are on a football team in the playoffs and we all need to band together to get it done, but as hard as you work only the anchors and managers will be credited with the win. You might get a verbal or even written thanks, but it will not show up on your check. So just do your job and do not stress about the ratings periods.

Do you ever stop and think about why you're a "lifelong worker bee"? I don't know your personal situation but comments like the one above are probably a big reason why.

My comments above are true.

Lifelong worker bees usually are more secure in their jobs, lower pay notwithstanding. Guess who comes first when management needs to cut some heads to make the quarter?

Hint: it's not the people making less.

If jumping from market to market is your bag, go for the higher pay. Cost of living goes up as you move so your pay had better keep pace.

If Wheel Of Fortune was on 4, 11 or 16 the KATV ratings wouldn't be as high as they are.

Grandma doesn't want to fiddle with a remote after the news. She just wants to see Pat & Vanna before going to bed. Grandson sets the channel so all she has to do is hit the power button.

It's all about diary placement. KATV has bought extra diaries in counties they are strong. It just takes a few because the amount of diaries sent back is so small. It's smart to do but it is also inflating their numbers. Bottom line is it works.

You TV news people need to be paying attention to what is happening with the Weather Channel and DirectTV. Guess what, people can get their information from the Internet!!!
Unfortunately, the Weather Channel got Rokered up after their enbeeseeification.

When Alyson, Chris, Beth, Christina, and Scott go missing we will really wish we had Erin around to anchor.

You should ask her why. She knows everything and will no doubt have an answer for you.

People like Erin are normally very insecure on the inside. Just stand up to her when she tries to push you around and don't be afraid to give her attitude right back. You will watch the witch melt.
