New KATV Set Takes Advantage of the Newest Technologies


Seems KATV's Daybreak morning program recently got new digs. Neal Gladner with AMP-POB has posted a story about how the new set came about.  The story states the old set was used for 25 years.  Of course the new one takes advantage of all the technology available to bring you the excitement you see in the mornings on KATV.

Congratulations. This has to be some kind of record for a set in the LR market.

Pard would be proud.

KATV memo:

"Due to recent expenses, we will not be able to raise your pay from $8.00 to '$8.25 this year. But remember, we're #1! (Even if Sinclair considers you #2.)

Thanks suckers,
The Boss

To be fair, they did redo the set that was there for 25 years every couple of years. They had it blue, and yellow, and all sorts of other colors. At least they're trying stuff.

A few gallons of Home Depot paint & a couple of Mexicans can make a cheap set redo.

Not exactly, THV has tried everything from air headed bleached blondes to Diaper Drives to Comedy in the Weather Garden and none of that has worked. They even fired Liz and they still suck.

THV Memo:

Due to the lack of interest in our newscasts and our on air talent, we will no longer do the news. Instead we have installed a drive thru window and will now be serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sarah will serve hot 3 day old coffee and donuts that fox 16 threw out, Dawn will be happy to take your order and mispronounce it when she repeats it back to you, Craig will always have a joke for you while you wait forever for Ed and Tom to cook up your food and get it wrong! If you ever have any complaints just pop on in and see Merideth, she is sure to smooth things over with that big toothy smile! And if you need a condiment just ask ole Steve Martone !
Ya'll come back now ya hear!

That new set is tragic. It looks cheap and soulless and like everybody else in the market. The worst thing one can do in TV news is lose what makes one look original. KATV's edge was an image of warmth, which some losers imploded in favor of slick and sleazy. Nice job, losers.

Hey THV the above poster wants us to put up a low tech curtain over the construction zone but we don't have one large enough. Did Liz leave a dress in wardrobe we can borrow? Thanks!

All the thv poster can come up with is mold and the construction zone. Has nothing to do with why you guys are almost dead last. They are onsessed with things that don't matter which is why they don't matter. Go figure.

Obsessed not onsessed just because he will pick that out and make a big deal about it and prove me right, they focus on things that are not relevant because they are not relevant.

If they make more than that, they need to learn how not to back focus or is that the reporters trying to do the photog's job?

1) Do you frame, then focus?
Or

He is probably the janitor at thv and is just disgruntled because he is stuck in a dead end job like all the rest of them are. At leat he doesn't have to clean up cat poop anymore.

Watch 11 for the dry humor and faded girls and stolen stories from KATV. Stuuuuttttering by dawn and sarah and if you wanna see sports change the channel because 11 has thrown in the towel there. Not sure if denise is a man in drag or a woman but according to one thv viewer on here that is what he is into. We are yesterdays thv with a new sour twist. Enjoy!
