KATV Last Stop for May
“This is the station I grew up watching, the station where I started my career and the station where I’m wanting to end my career.”...that's what KATV/Channel 7/Little Rock evening anchor Chris May told Arkansas Business. May returned to Arkansas last month following 18 years of anchoring in Boston and Philadelphia.
“I left here for Boston [where he worked at WHDH-TV and WBZ-TV] in September 1998. I was away for 18 years — nine years in Boston and nine years in Philadelphia [KYW-TV, a CBS-owned and operated station]. I loved those places, and they have a lot to offer, but I’ve never found myself wanting for anything in Little Rock. You can’t go home again? After a month back at KATV and two months back in town, I’d point to my experience and say it’s just the opposite.”
May was off the air just over a year due to contractual restrictions with CBS.
