NWA Station Names Sports Director

Mitch Roberts is joining KHBS/KHOG/Fayetteville-Fort Smith as sports director.  Roberts is no stranger to viewers in northwest Arkansas as he most recently was news anchor/reporter for KFSM/Channel 5.  

“Mitch brings a terrific combination of experience and Arkansas-Oklahoma sports knowledge to our newsroom,” said 40/29 News Director, Greg Shepperd. “I know Mitch will provide excellent leadership when it comes to covering the Razorbacks and our diverse sports market.” 

Roberts' first day at 40/29 will be May 5th.

I remember him doing these golf-related stories at local country clubs when he was co-anxhoring the morning show on KFSM. They were silly, but amusing.

I take it Josh Taylor was either 1) not qualified enough to get job or 2) was passed over. Either way, if you're working in sports in NWA, and not working for KNWA, you're wasting your time.

5News and 40/29's sports departments are embarrassingly bad.

If you work for KNWA though, you've gotta use lots of chapstick. For the most part, frat boys kissing major ass.

Razorback Nation should be renamed/ Razorbacks Sports PR Deptarment.
