KATV Tops in Arkansas

The results of the November ratings period are in.  Arkansas Business.com has the numbers that show KATV/Channel 7/Little Rock lead the way in all time periods.  KATV overtook KTHV in the 5am hour compared to November 2012 numbers.  KATV had this to say: 

“We’re thankful this holiday season that Arkansas viewers continue to pick Channel 7 News as their top choice,” Mark Rose, KATV’s president and general manager, said in a release. “To have another clean sweep in households and key demos in every newscast is a remarkable achievement for the KATV team, but we owe it all to the people of Arkansas.”

Complete numbers can be found HERE.

why did it take so long to post these numbers? They've been available for over a month.

And the slide continues for KTHV. At one time they had it all and lost it. Can't say you don't deserve it. One bad management decision after another. And the Golden Boy Caplan isn't available for comment. He's probably interviewing in another market since he's contributed to the downfall of this station. And he'll tell you it's everyone else's fault but we know who the puppet master really is in this building. Oh well, hopefully he'll be gone one day soon and maybe things will turn around for KTHV.

And poor KARK 4 and Fox 16. I used to watch them, but not anymore. Let's face it, Channel 7 has it pretty easy right now.

These numbers will be great for future reference.

Once the right-wing spin kicks up a notch, we'll see how many people stick around for the "truth in reporting" they advertise - or will look elsewhere.

Who is the puppet master at THV? Are their fingers tangles in the strings? No one here knows what is going on.

As opposed to the left wing spin everyone does now? I could see some gravitation to doing something different in this market.

Hence my original point - we'll find out who switches from 7. If they are so left wing now, they will surely offend many viewers if all those viewers only look for left wing news.

Next may be Beth, Christina & Erin with full leg shots during the news. Then we'll know we are watching a Fox clone. Who cares what the news is, as long as we see some leg.

yeah Fox 16 is really left wing, since when

Agreed. There is very little "left" in this market.

Could on-the-street reporting get any worse? Are the stations using interns?

"Watch out for icing under the stop lights."
Yep, she seriously said that.

Also, what has happened to the news camera people that knew how to focus and frame a shot?

ALL stations are guilty of this, not just one.

The grocery store paid more for bagging groceries so the "news camera people" left.

Not left? Are you kidding? Now when here a suspect described as "a man", I know he's black because you would have undoubtedly said his color if he were any other race. But you have to tiptoe around it to sound more PC.

Yes anything race related is skewed way left in this market. MLK day is treated like New Year's around here. It is ridiculous.

Actually, it was Robert E. Lee's birthday LONG before MLK's.

But, being PC is now required. Sad.

Let's get back on task here, discussing KATV. What would be worse than the "Movie Reviewer/Sat Only Co-Host/Account Exec" making snow angels live on air? Her co-host Big Red getting down & doing it with her....

Don't understand where KATV was during the winter weather. No live coverage Friday night. No video of all the wrecks. No team coverage. Saturday was just as bad. Don't they have reporters and cameramen anymore?

Coverage of local news is abysmal no matter what the station. If you have a smartphone, download a free radio scanner app. They have many options, both locally and globally. I have thresholds set for different agencies so I'm alerted if something major happens. Friday night was a good example. I was able to listen to police, fire, EMS - the whole thing in live time. No fluff, no Ned telling me exactly what tomorrow's temperature will be in Cabot, Benton or Roosterpoot (how dumb can he get)? Now I can keep informed and not have to put up with all the mindless BS.

Why would anyone listen to Ned after his failure with this forecast? He downplayed everything until it was too late. Everyone stuck in their car Friday night can blame him.

Ned forecast failures are becoming the norm.

I have never seen KATV sink so low for weather coverage. No management. No team.

Something seriously fell apart this weekend for KATV.

Keep trolling. I work weekends at 7 and saw the EP and News Director in on Saturday. Where you getting your info?

 
At 3:26 PM, February 09, 2014, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I think the management and teams comments were probably directed at Ned and Barry who neglected to show up on Saturday during one of the biggest weather events we've had so far this year.

Also the Friday night coverage was pretty bad on the news side. There was hardly any video of the horrible messes everywhere.

Saturday Daybreak was pretty bad too. No News Director or "EP" showed up for that rehash.

They don't need Ned & Barry when they have Todd. Those two knuckleheads scoffed during the weather forecast about a quick snow fall & warmer temps. All Ned cared about was dinner time & drinks & Barry just wants to schedule his next golf game with more favorable weather..

Does Ned know he is getting his butt kicked every time a major event comes along? You'd think he'd not want that to keep happening.

THV and KARK people should latch on to the Ned criticisms more often. It's one of the only things KATV people don't have a snappy comeback for. It's true. He's lazy, takes three hour dinner breaks, and gets his butt kicked on every big weather story. People keep watching him though.

You people need to review your definitions of insanity because there's no reason to expect anything different from the KATV weather team.

Todd's the weather nerd--Ned and Barry are just circus ringmasters.

I, too, was disappointed in KATV's Saturday morning show. They actually went live from the Home Show instead of giving me up to date information on roads. That was a bone-headed decision. And -- would someone please tell that clown Yakobian to stop referring to Saturday Daybreak as "the best two hours of your life." Far from it. by the way, I'm just a viewer,

I heard one the KATV anchors took a two hour dinner Friday night and didn't come back due to the snow. You would think a news anchor would understand bad weather. You would think the news director would make sure his anchors were there.

Well when the chief meteorologist says it's no big deal, you might take your usual two hour dinner break too.

Maybe the anchor was "abandoning"Janelle a little early.

I was going to be sorry about abandoning Janelle, but then I remembered it was just Saturday Daybreak.

I am thinking of making an "I abandoned Janelle" t-shirt.

It's amusing that THV spent two or there complete news shows on the street leading into the St. Charles area where there were some cars on the sides of the streets. No other part of town was shown, just that street. Does someone in power at that station live on that road or what?

Somebody on Saturday Daybreak tell Janelle she is too fat and too stupid to be on tv.

She's probably heard that before, or just looked in the mirror. It's time for managers to step in on her attitude though, definitely getting too big for her britches in the newsroom.

Chris the morning anchor dude on seven continues to be a source for laughs. This morning he had a story about Jos A. Banks and the brainiac said "Jose Banks."

Doesn't quite beat when he Rio deHanero instead of Rio deJaeiro but it's close.

Sounds like the producers are starting to have some fun.

They (KATV producers) are just as clueless.

That is true. Why is it we attract some of the dumbest producers on the planet?

They are not all dumb. Some are just very inexperienced, and the good ones out of that bunch move on fast. The ones who hang around working for peanuts for more than a couple years are dumb. It is proof positive they are both dumb enough to work for that money and not good enough to move on to something else.

I saw that as well, and it was WAY more than two or three times they went to that shot. It was a live shot, no less, and the reporter was struggling to describe the stranded cars and snowy roads in a different way every time. I didn't see the point.
