Imagine if doctors and nurses posted all over social media that they saved a life today or yesterday. This idiot Fortner has posted it all over the place that she is leaving and has left and how sad she is about leaving Arkansad, longing to hear how great she is at guessing the damn weather. Amazing how someone that does literally nothing gets praise while people that actually make a difference in this world go on about their day. Hey over here! I am a tv celebrity, look at me, notice me, worship me because I am on tv! Give me a damn break! Go away already and next time try not to be so obvious you crave attention for being irrelevant and suck at your job.

Hahaha "quit craving attention for being irrelevant and suck (sic) at your job" says person craving attention by posting a comment on an irrelevant website and sucking at it.

Don't be happy she left, if a bow and arrow storm hits we are in trouble because no other met in Little Rock will be able to identify it. Bwaaaaaa ha ha ha.

I am looking forward to seeing Merideth doing the weather. I love how she pronounces Arkansas, Arkanthaw. Made me spit out my tea the first time I heard it.

10:04, nice comment. Plus to infinity.

Sarah was not the worst meteorologist ever in the Little Rock market. That honor goes to Michelle Leigh.

Just like Dawn, she has to be related to someone at tegna, no other explanation that those two idiots still have a job. Arkansans are pretty stupid though, they voted for Hillary, OMG I am ashamed to be from Arkiesaw.

Do you always complain about your complaints, even as there is nothing left to complain about? Go recreate and enjoy yourself.

Sarah is gone. May the complainer in chief rest in peace, until you find someone else to hate. It must be tough living in your skin... self loathing and all. Party on mad man.

They posted about a story the blogman posted. All you do is complain about other posters and their right to their opinion on the topic. Instead of attacking them why don't you post about the topic and give examples of how great she was, a rising star and why she was hired to replace Ed? You cannot so sit down and stfu!

Yes Merideth is doing the Weather tonight Because Sarah Fortner is now gone I Think Merideth I Think Is Going to Get the Weekend Evening Job Full Time.

As far as I know, Meredith is not even a meteorologist...that must either be temporary unless she is starting a new career? However she would need at least 3 years of school to get the *bare minimum* qualifications, and 4 years or more to get certified.

No, hardly any of the meteorologists in Little Rock have degrees in that subject. Most just sent away for their certificates from Mississippi State. Those aren't degrees.

I think Merideth does as well or better than the previous weekend met thv had and she was certified terrible.

lol... 3:39... I have never said I thought she was good... I just never understood your insistence on running her down relentlessly.
Or for that matter running anyone down as much as you and others have. Some people get pleasure from the tear down apparently. So enjoy your day, your time will come soon enough; karma is a mother fucker.

Not 3:39 but I will give it a go.
I don't believe in karma, Karma empowers the concept of victim blaming. If Karma does exist, bad things cannot happen to good people. Bad things happen to good people all the time and good things happen to bad people as well. The concept of karma is if one does good things then good things will come to them, do bad and bad comes back to you. I cannot imagine what type of bad things a child could have done that has cancer or anyone for that matter. What kind of bad things could someone have done to deserve being murdered or someone that was raped? So they must have done something bad for karma to come back and bite them right? If saying someone was bad at their job is the worst thing these people say then they should be fine and I will also add that nobody is as relentless as the news media when it comes to getting a story, they thrive off the bad karma of others as it sells papers and gets viewers to watch. If you believe in karma here are some words for you, what people do is their karma, how you react is yours. Oh and I agree with the other posters Sarah was not very good and living in Arkansas with an average of 30 plus tornados a year thats just not acceptable in my opinion. In your world I guess losing viewers was karma biting THV for hiring her and letting her cover severe weather. I guess Ed did something bad as his karma was having to come in on his days off to take over for her.

Sarah is a truly gifted and talented girl. She made an amazing impact while she was here. People loved opening up their hearts and homes when they tuned in to see her. I know we were all delighted when she shared her vast knowledge of the weather. An amazing meteorologist, really the best there is!

Charlotte must have been short on Bow and Arrow Storm trackers. Ed said last night he would be in on Sunday to cover the severe weather, not much has changed since she left.

They have a quiver full of those and you have shot them all... master bull shit archer that you are. Karma is real, don't kid yourself. Call it freaky luck, call it superstition, call it what you like, it sometimes just takes time to materialize.

Hey its a post about Sarah stick to the topic. Everytime they post about her you get all upset about it. The blogman put the story up so people could post their thoughts on it you just need to deal with it that she was terrible. You must have watched her everytime she was on as it is obvious you are in love with her and must defend her honor. Get over it man, she was terrible. Why does that hurt you so much? Why do you think you can bully people that post their opinion? The sooner you realize you cannot control what people say or do the better off you will be and hopefully gets you off the meds. Have a nice Sunday but be careful as there might be a chance for a Bow and Arrow Storm this evening!

Noooooooo, not a bow and arrow storm! I will miss the phrase she said "its wet outside because its raining!" Lol
It was like watching a monkey teach a physics class. See ya! Oh the humanity! I am not sure about this karma thing the guy above posted but I must have done something really good as I don't have to see her messy forecasts on my fav station anymore. I kinda like this karma thing!

Man, I sure do miss Sarah Fortner's unbelievable severe weather coverage. I noticed she hasn't done any tweets for our area. Greg Dee still is even though he has been gone from paradise a lot longer. Oh well, thanks anyway for the memories Ms. Fortner.

It is quite clear that the departure of Sarah Fortner has left a gaping void in the local weather coverage. What an asset that is missed so dearly! She probably should have made twice what she was making at KTHV. Her expertise, professionalism, and charisma will take her a long way in the future!

Yes she certainly saved lives by not being here. Thank you Sarah for moving on and when Charlotte is done with you too please don't come back to Arkansas. We are still mad you did not take Dawn and Dunleavy with you.

4:00 a.m. Little Boy, I can see why you posted in the middle of the night. I'm sure your parents wouldn't have given you permission to post such an immature, attention-seeking post. Do they know you troll for attention? I can't imagine an adult posting something that bad on a local TV news blog.

The comment section on this site is such a cesspool. If you guys have nothing better to do than trash talk each other anonymously maybe you should get out of TV news and get a life.

How dare anyone talk about anyone that reports the news and has no problem sticking a microphone in peoples faces to get a story! The news media lives off the misery of others and all the bad things in the world. It sells papers and brings in viewers and high ratings so get off your high horse.

How did you come up with the name ArkansasOne? The only thing Arkansas would be One in is probably teen pregnancy. Or if you work for THV you might dream of being One in the ratings but that my friend is just a dream but the chances went up a little since they got rid of the idiot weekend met Sarah.

Meredith is still unwatchable. I can't believe she has not improved any. How is she still employed? Fortner was dismal, but Meredith is trash.

I have never understood the hate towards Merideth on this blog. I think she does a good job too and at least she comes across as a nice person, Fortner acted like she was Lil Miss Priss and tried to make viewers believe she was an intelligent person but because of her many blunders she came across as the biggest idiot on LR TV. Also I don't think Merideth is a certified Met but she does a good job despite that. Then again its thv and not many people watch them so its probably a moot point.
