Sister Stations Assist With Coverage

Gannett has brought in sister stations to help with coverage.  Sebastian Robertson from WFAA/Dallas/Fort Worth has been brought in to help out KTHV with its wall-to-wall coverage of the aftermath of Sunday's tornadoes. UPDATE:  A reporter from Gannett's Atlanta, GA stations WXIA is also in the state assisting with coverage. A reporter from KHOU is also in town assisting. 

Just a little tidbit when I was looking on WFAA's webpage for info I found  a couple of former Little Rock and Shreveport reporters/anchors working for the Dallas station.  Former KATV'er Carla Wade and formerKSLA/KTBS/Shreveport sports anchor Ted Madden work for WFAA.

I really enjoyed Channel 11's tornado recovery stories last night. They were told by WXIA and KHOU reporters from Atlanta and Houston. It really showed viewers how bad reporters have gotten in Little Rock. Good idea bringing them in Gannett. If Nexstar brought reporters in, they would just be small market reporters, much like what KARK has now.

That's because Nexstar is a small to medium market company with small to medium market talent.

I see from his bio Ted Madden's been with WFAA since 2002. When did he work at KSLA and KTBS? There have been so many people who've come and gone since then I don't remember him.
