TEGNA Employees To Get Bonus

TEGNA, the parent company of KTHV/Channel 11/Little Rock, is giving its employees a little extra in their paychecks this holiday season.  TV Spy reports TEGNA employees will recieve a $400 bonus this holiday season.  

“TEGNA has made terrific progress since becoming a separate company six months ago and we are primed for great things in 2016 and beyond,” wrote Martore. “But we won’t be able to do it without you. As you’ve heard me say before, you, our employees, are our greatest resource. What each of you does every day matters and is critically important to our continued success.”

Maybe it will motivate them to improve their product that they put on the air but doubt it.

Did anyone see the bumbling and stuttering by Sarah and Dawn at Garvan Woodland Gardens? Can either one of them complete a whole sentence without messing up a newscast? Made me laugh though so there was a positive in it.

I doubt the 2 of them even knew where they were. Sarah kept messing up when she would say live from Garvan Gardens then stutter and then say Garvan Woodland Gardens. After watching her fumble through half of the forecast I had to change to 4 to see what the weather forecast would be. Unbelievable.

$400 bonus is a joke that won't even cover monthly bills they need to pay that's more like gift card money for Best Buy. At least give them a $1000 to $1500 bonus to help pay for rent or monthly bills.

They say their employees are their greatest asset. Funny I didn't feel that way a few years ago when I had two furloughs and pay cut. Then i was told to be happy I still had a job. Wait until the share price starts dropping, then we'll get screwed again.

To the guy who said 400 is a joke... you must not have heard the bullshit Channel 5 does. $25 gift cards to Walmart. Oh joy!! The cheapskate GM, Van, can't manage to spare anything for his employees.

Now that's a joke.

I find it funny that Tegna had to make it public that they are giving $400 dollars to everyone before Christmas but they can't hire a decent whether met to fill in for Ed Buckner. That's why whenever we have severe weather we get Ed Buckner to come on a Saturday because Sarah Fortner looks completely lost like a deer looking at headlights of a truck.

When she is on I just shake my head and turn the channel. It used to be funny but now its just sad. I stll say she has to be related to someone in mgmt. That would make more sense than them just making a bad hire. THV also threw in the towel with sports.

7:46, idiot posts like that are why I've had some local female TV personalities tell me they are creeped out by comments such as those and are worried about dealing with people in public. I realize anonymosity gives people a deluded sense of courage. However, if you said what you did to a woman at a grocery store, shopping center or the Arkansas River Trail, you would likely have the police called on you. I realize hurt people hurt people, but what was served by that comment?

4:21, I'm 11:37. You're a coward for your response and you try to belittle my comment because you want to throw off attention from your creepy comment. Many women, even TV anchors, will be friendly if one doesn't make creepy statements to them. They usually reject creeps like you. Go to the Arkansas River Trail or Park Plaza and say what you said about Natalie to a woman you meet and see how long it is before someone calls the cops on you. Be a man and admit you made a mistake. I've met Natalie at Mayflower after last year's tornado. She seems to be a nice person and not an attention seeker. I make no apologies for respecting women. I guess the posters who claim all people on TV seek attention don't know about the anchors who've had panic attacks and had to have someone fill in for them. This blog can be good with the absence of infantile creepy posts.

I don't have to admit anything, you arrogant cunt. You're selective with your so-called outrage. This blog could do without the daily vicious personal attacks of all these celebrities that you know so much about. Guess you don't care about that. You meet someone one time & suddenly you know everything about her? Did you get her autograph on a glossy photo or was it a T-shirt? It's interesting that these panic attacks your idols are getting are due to titty jokes, not the daily pummeling here about their job performance or looks.

It must be lonely around the holidays for you. Get out of your mom's basement, away from the candle-lit shrine of your superstar LR media personality celebrities, and help feed the homeless if you're so worried about others. Maybe you'll find someone who actually gives a shit about your opinion. Or at least pretend to listen.

Yeah that was my point. This person feels that making a comment to or about a local celebrity is different than the average low-life citizen. Apparently it's ok to trash them daily on this blog - as long as you don't mention vaginas or boobs.

I'm 9:53. 1:02, do some research. You don't live in your mom's basement when she died of cancer in 1987. Instead of assuming you know me,I meet people because they work out at the same fitness center or involved in the same charitable endeavors. They aren't celebrities.

9:21, the sooner I die, the sooner I can be in heaven. Since I admit my faith, my favorite part of the blog is discussion of the business of news, not 14-year-old like puerility about women I don't know. I love the river trail. I meet many women there and don't have to settle like some posters on here for making perverted comments about women who would call the cops on me because of creepy behavior.

Only babies resort to saying everybody-type posys with no credibiility and resort to calling people phonies that they don't know. I don't like the things said here either. However, you show no credibility because you are trying to distract from your creepy comments of perversion and then you say someone lives in their mother's basement whose mother died in 1987 of cancer. Keep on lying and trying to distract from yourself. At least I respect women with my posts.

Good for you. Enough with your mother dying in 1987, gee nobody has ever experienced that. You've worn that one out. At least that's one person who doesn't have to listen to your holier than thou attitude. Maybe that's why you're so angry with everyone. Let it go, it's been 28 years. You need a new excuse for your bitterness.. So far your credibility is your judgemental faith, a dead mom, you jog the river trail, and go to the same gym as your idols so you can claim you are friends with them. You've made plenty of assumptions about me but I'm not as weak as you are. I think your view of me is hilarious. Keep digging. I revel in your outrage.

I have never said I didn't make the titty joke. I sure did & I make no apologies for it. Pussy, tits, dicks, asses. I'm an equal opportunity offender. Would you get all bent if I bet Craig O'Neill has a huge cock? Fuck you if you don't like it.

You're playing the distraction game by lying again. Families lose people they love. I pointed out your lies because you're trying to distract by posting something to objectify a mother with a young child who works on a local meteorologist and traffic reporter. You don't get that women leave TV because of creepy perverted comments like yours. Its traumatic for many women. My most fulfilling work is helping women who left abusive domestic situations. Just keep on lying. I know you're blaming me for your creepy post. Go to KARK and try to get into the station and say to Natalie what you said about her in your post and see if they don't kick you. The story of KTHV's owners giving bonuses. A phony tries to blame someone else for what they have done and lie about the person who calls them on their infantile behavior. Only a Teflon narcissist would call an admitted sinner holier than thou.

Who gives a shit? it's funny, the only person upset is you. Natalie hasn't said anything about it on this blog. Nobody else said anything about this rampant "problem." You're like those niggers who want whitey to apologize for slavery, even though no person living today lived during the Civil War. You enjoy playing the victim. Cry & demand someone apologize for what offends you this week. So TV is the only profession that has women dealing with off-color comments? You have to be the most ignorant person on the planet.

Sarah Fortner was back on today and I almost went crazy when she said I have a wonderful surprise for the forecast . She lost any kind of respect with almost every viewer when she became completely lost and refused to continue doing updates for Ed Buckner during the severe storms on Wednesday with regular anchors doing her job and was no show for the really bad weather this past weekend. When Ed Buckner showed up this past weekend for the severe weather even though he has a wife and kids that he could be with during the holidays.

Ed is the reason I watch the weather on 11, I am glad he came in to do the severe weather on Wed and this past weekend. THV probably finally realized that Sarah cannot do her job and when she is on they lose viewers. I remember someone on here said Sarah was hired for a reason and would probably take Eds job soon. Made me laugh then and its even more funny today. Come on THV step it up and get Ed some help. He does not deserve to have to work with such incompetence.
