There are job postings for the sports director, news anchor, as well as a morning news anchor. Too bad Comer refuses to promote from within or maybe he's not allowed to do that. Too bad, there is potential locally.

Definitely time for Larry to leave. He has embarrassed that station one too many times with his stupid antics.

There's a reason everyone is jumping ship at 5, they pay nothing and are lost at the very basics of how to report news.

Where is Larry going to teach? Hackett advertised for an English teacher that could also teach journalism. Hope he didn't go there....poor students.

Chris Breece is the sports Director at KFSM the awkward young guy ? I thought the big guy Swafford was the sports Director he knows more about local sports and talks on local sports talk radio shows all the time. Also will Larry Henry have to serve jail time before he starts teaching at his school?

I thought Swafford was the sports director as well. I would assume it's a no brainier that he gets the job if he wants it.... Oh wait, it's channel 5. They'll probably hire a 20-something who can't read and push Swafford out.

Maybe they can get Jocko back from 40/29. I always liked him. I see he still tweets about the Hogs.

Ever Since Rick Bagley left, things have sort of fallen apart. Van is obviously the major reason but his hiring of Cummings as news director was his biggest mistake by far. Cummings lacks the authority and made the awful hire of Liza. Since his hiring there have been several who have let KFSM.

Chris may cover a national championship in Birmingham, something he probably would not have done at Arkansas ...

I like the approach 5 has with sports. They don't go crazy with Arkansas sports but still cover them a good deal. They focus on the local sports and high school football, which is huge in NWA. They've had a good product the last two or three years and it would be stupid not to move Swofford up. I went to college with the dude. He's sarcastic but knows his stuff and is from the area, which goes a long way with local TV viewers. But with how things usually work around there, (I've got multiple friends in the NWA market) they'll probably burn this bridge.

More people have not attended the U of A than have. All other colleges in the state have more combined attendance than U of A at their games.

Why do stations go nuts over carrying the U of A games?

Why won't old Frank let the U of A play ASU?

Old Frank is no long in charged. Why doesn't Old Dean let ASU play UCA?

Uh, you don't really believe old Frank is no longer in charge do you? He will be in charge to the end, believe me.

By the looks of your spelling it's apparent you have never been to that or any other campus; or maybe you have. Just sayin'.

Ch 7 posted a pic on their FB about a teenaged cheerleader from Sheridan that posted a pic on her instagram with a black face. From what I have read 7 was playing the race card stirring the pot but took it down after a lot of people complained about it saying it was not newsworthy and only done to embarrass the teen and stir up racism.
