Good move KFSM. This should have happened before they hired the other guy Chris.

Few more hires left to go but let's see if they really have finally learned their lesson.

The Hogs did this, the Pigs did that, we had former Hogs that did something else ... pretty much what you get from sports broadcasts in Northwest Arkansas.

Yes you only do so much Hog stuff especially in the Summers. Hey Ch 5 might be ghetto but they do cover that high school ball well. I love me some Razorback football coverage when they are actually doing something. I'm out.

Yeah, it's all about the Hogs in NW part of the state. That's all they know; Hogs and Ole Frank.

They are the only station that does high football coverage or even coverage of any high school sport. It's the summer time, there is no sports except pro baseball and hogs being arrested.

The hogs are a joke. They serve the kool-aid strong in Arkansas. Its all about wanting your money.

At least you guys don't have a Sarah Fortner, probably the worst weekend met LR has ever had yet THV has seen fit to put her on anywhere they need a body. Its sad to watch. Ever heard of a bow and arrow storm? Apparently THV is using this new scientific BIG WORD as Sarah would say to scare viewers! OH MY WHERE IS THE ARROW GONNA HIT? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha. And thank your Lucky stars you do not have Dawn and Craig, hit the snooze button duo..

I think Sara just gets nervous. KTHV has had many worse than Sarah. I remember one storm 10-15 years ago Tom and Ed were still new and the weekend weather guy was so bad saying the opposite of what everyone else was saying. I watched as Tom came in and started interrupting him and then they just had Tom and one never heard from this guy again. More or less just pushed off the air.

@2:27 AM, Are you sure she didn't say "bow echo"? At any rate, I'm in NWA and the only Little Rock stuff I get is that noon news on KNWA from KARK.

Any clips/videos of this Sarah Fortner I keep reading about? Here in NWA, 5News has had some bad mets. I'm pretty sure Garrett Lewis is the glue that keep 5News together. 40/29 has a solid team, even without Drew. KNWA goes through people like dealing a deck of cards. Dan Skoff is knowledgeable, but he signed that anti-LGBT discrimination petition back when Fayetteville was considering that ordinance.

Dan is a known member of the "Six Flags Over Jesus" monstrosity that is off the Pinnacle Hills exit on I-49 in NWA.

1:42, if they let anyone on the air at KTHV, Why aren't you on there? You can't just show up at the station and get on the air. Hyperbole destroys your credibility.

I am going to let 7 On Your Side investigate the rip off that thv is. Ha ha. And to answer you question look at who is on there. I rest my case.

Who?

7 has the ginger bender. She's terrible. She can't read. That's what anchors do. So you should fire her. The long faced girl that is your 5pm anchor has no personality and is pretty in a horsey kind of way. The face of NEWS ?? lol... Guess we all have our crosses to bear. 7 is instagram. 7 is lawsuit. 7 is a sad panda. 7 is panda nuggets.

"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." 7 is RACISM.

OK, let's reel this back in and refocus on the topic ... a KFSM sports director has nothing to do with what KATV does. Different stations, different networks, even different cities.

It's all about 7. 7 is for realz. Just ask them, but don't bring up the racism lawsuit, they don't want to talk about that.

That was a white girl. Only black folks can cry racism and everyone bows down to them. See Ferguson then and now. White guy kills 9 blacks in a church and the confederate flag is all but banned, southern heritage is attacked and statues were vandalized. Muslim kills some Marines in Tenn and barely a mention by the media and no riots. Here in America these days just cry racism and you get your way, even if you are a hood rat criminal. Wake up Merica!

Yep, and apparently no other teams in Arkansas deserve to be on TV. You can bet ole Frank is still calling the shots and putting the cash in the bank up there courtesy of the suckers that want to spend time and pay for a high-priced ticket to watch a bunch of sweaty jocks (most of whom will never graduate) bump heads in a cow-pasture-like environment. Meanwhile, the Hogs refuse to even consider playing ASU.

The Hogs franking lost to Toledo! WMS sucks and Arkansaw would have won if it was in Fayetteville by gosh. In LR you get dummies getting hammered drinking all that Coors and fight cut each other with beer bottles. A few of the girls said it was over a PlayStation or something. All games in Fayetteville I say. Go Hogs! Watching the post game someone tell KNWA RN to at least use newer photos of Hog players when they're doing a story about the team I swear they had 2012 photo up there damn. You think Frank would have fired ol' Bert Bielema by now? He is like that O'Doyle rules dude in Billy Madison. Oh well. Back to original post, Swofford is doing an adequate from what I have seen. Hopefully channel 5 won't screw it up.
