Something to Make Ya Go Hmmmmm......

This from the tip jar:


Todd Yakoubian changed his Twitter handle last night from katvweather to just Todd Yakoubian. Is he leaving Katv?

He has also taken down any mention of KATV on his Facebook page....

Additional:
This from the tip jar:

 To answer your question about Todd, everyone at channel 7 is required to get separate Twitter handles per Sinclair Broadcasting policy.

I have been wondering the same thing. I would assume KATV would own the KATV account and it now as a name of Bob for @katv_weather.

Todd has long had 2 Facebook pages
One is a personal page that you "Friend"
https://www.facebook.com/steven.yak

The other was is "public personalty" page, but it now says "Personal Blog"

As of today June 8, 2015 @ 9:34 the Arkansas Weather Blog still references
http://arkansasweather.blogspot.com/

TWITTER: @KATV_WEATHER

Still trying to figure out how he converted his Twitter followers from KATV_WEATHER to @ToddYak

One thing to note the picture on the pages is all the same, but he is still wearing the Channel 7 Lapel pen.

If he leaves KATV many weather people will stop watching. He could easily move to another Little Rock station and be Chief. He is better than anyone at KARK or KTHV. Although I do think Jeff at KLRT is real good.

he just changed the name on the katv_weather account, then someone at KATV setup a new katv_weather account on Twitter.

it may also have had something to do with Todd wanting to have his personal twitter account Verified.

Everyone at KATV is doing it. Didn't take a lot of research to figure that out. Must be a sinclair thing.

I checked a few other KATV people and they had not changed but some may have. If I was running KATV I would want to make everyone use a Twiter handle that had the stations name or number in it. It would help with branding etc. I would not let someone reference their account on air without it following a proper format.

Just check Beth Hunt. She has two and clearly explains in her last two tweets that KATV policy is to have seperate accounts. Personal and professional.

Sinclair required all media personalities to have separate work/personal accounts and the corporation "owns" the work account. All the Ch 7 people had to setup a new work acct or hand over their current account to Sinclair. If you had 50,000 followers would you had that over to an out-of-state corporation? Nope. That's why there's a new @katvtodd "work" twitter account. And when you look at the tweets, they're pretty hilarious.

I looked at the twitter names of a few thv employees and none of them have kthv as part of their name on their twitter account. Perhaps KATV is just doing what the rest are already doing.

Do all the THV people have 2 accounts? No? I guess we're not doing what the rest are then are we now?

nobody cares what thv is doing or not doing.

Stupid comment, 1:53. Just because you don't care doesn't mean that others don't watch their news. Your false consensus bias shows your ignorance. Intelligent posts were made on this topic until you chimed in. People will disagree with you.

THV sux and nobody cares what they do. Even people who work there don't care, obviously.

I watched them twice. I am a glutton for punishment.

Congratulations, if true. That's a big win.

It's true. 11 not only won the mornings but was up in every newscast. 4 was up in all the cast as well. Both of the gains came directly from 7.

The talent, both on and off the air, at 7 is not what it was a few years ago. The losses are starting to show up where it hurts.
