Good Afternoon Arkansas......

KATV/Channel 7/Little Rock has announced it will start an afternoon news/lifestyle program.  The new program will air from 3pm until 4pm, with The Steve Harvey Show moving to 4pm.  

KATV News Director Nick Genty said he was "thrilled to announce" the new program, which he said Channel 7 had been "working on for some time." Along with the hourlong "Good Morning Arkansas" at 9 and the 30-minute "Midday Arkansas" at 11:30, the new program will give KATV two-and-a-half hours of local programming between "Good Morning America" and "Channel 7 News Live at 5."

The station is currently seeking a host for the program which will debut September 4th.

From what I read on another site, they are moving Harvey to the 4PM time slot and replacing the Dr. Oz show altogether. I thought Dr. Oz was pretty popular. Maybe he's moving to Oprah's network exclusively. Just thought it was an odd change. I guess though out of all of the local stations KATV seems to have a better handle on managing their ratings. They seem to know what works, unlike KTHV, yikes.

Why until September? What takes so long to get a program started?

So the afternoon will have more up to date news and weather than the Good morning arkansas. Does that mean the news and weather on GMA is not up to date? They just aren't renewing Dr. Oz. Dr. Oz will still be available, KATV just isn't buying it. My guess it's a Sinclair deal. they handle all programming decision and tell the stations what to run.

The local media is corrupt. The big national corporate media elites should just go out of business.

Especially the dumb careless people that work for them. They do not deserve a pay day and they should just quit.

Sept is when contracts start on new shows. The contract with Dr. Oz will end the last Friday in Aug.

Why not take away Harry's time slot at 2pm? From what I've heard, his ratings are in the trash.
