Fort Smith Station Moving Out of Fort Smith

FTV Live is reporting that KFSM will be moving out of Fort Smith in the coming year.  Station GM Van Comer says the station will be making a move to the the area of Johnson, east of I-49.  FTV Live reports the station has already signed a long term lease for a build to suit project in Johnson....

Obviousuly you want to put a spin on the story. The market is Fort Smith-Fayetteville and KFSM has said it is not moving out of the Fort Smith market. It is replacing its studio and offices in Fayetteville with the new facility in Fayetteville, a move well past due. KFSM is keeping a Fort Smith studio and office as well. The Fort Smith location will be relocated once the new Johnson facility is completed. I feel confident KFSM will continue to cover the Fort Smith and northwest Arkansas market areas.

C'mon Van, don't BS us.

Everyone knows KFSM is leaving Fort Smith.

Yeah, KFSM will continue to cover the area south of I-49 just like 40/29 is "committed to the River Valley." Everybody knows that's bullshit.

I've never understood this market. You have one station that covers the River Valley while ignoring everything in Northwest Arkansas except the Hogs. You have another one that focuses on everything Fayetteville and especially the Hogs. Then you have another one that covers Northwest Arkansas while ignoring sports and the River Valley.

Maybe its sister station KXNW channel 34 in Fayetteville will become the new CBS affiliate for the entire market region. Johnson is near Fayetteville and not Fort Smith. Also the Fayetteville area is much more interesting to cover than the Fort Smith one. Whats in the town of Johnson itself anyways?!

Has there been an announcement that KFSM will not be the CBS affiliate for the market? Johnson will only serve as the location of the new studio and offices. it in no way will be central to the coverage of the news in all of Northwest Arkansas. Johnson, by the way, is a fabulous suburb to Fayetteville and Springdale with quite lifestyle, low crime rates, great law enforcement yet within 5 minutes of everything you need in Fayetteville or Springdale. Best place to live in all of NW Arkansas.

Nexstar abuses the local FOX affiliate by being included with the NBC affiliate there. The CBS folks in the market need to take care of that CW affiliate instead of being bundled with the ABC one, too!

CW and ABC are same ownership, Hearst-Argyle

Nexstar and Tribune need to quit advertising openings they have no desire in filling.

I guess KFSM isn't replacing the now 7- month departed Charlie Hannema with another anchor in the mornings? I would be pissed if I were April Baker, having anchored solo since the end of last August. Now the weekend nights met left on Saturday. 5 does a terrible job of replacing departed talent in a timely manner. More work (again) for Garrett and Joe.

It's not just on-air talent. They keep advertising producer openings they have zero desire in filling.

Fort Smith's not the greatest place in the world but I can think of a helluva lot of places that are much worse, especially in same size markets. KNWA ALREADY replaced Jennifer Penate with former KFSM'er Katelynn Zoellner. Meanwhile over at 5, April Baker's still flying solo since Charlie Hannema left LAST August. LOL. Hannema apparently hated it and Zoellner left last year to go back home to California. It's obvious with her move back to Arkansas, she couldn't get away from 5 quickly enough.

"We strive so hard to achieve the look of yesterday" - Van Comer

As always, 5 is last to the party. A move like this would have been bold 10 years ago. Now it's completely unnecessary. KFSM could continue to capitalize as a news monopoly in Fort Smith, while still making money in NWA. 15 years ago they were able to separate their coverage, run one segment in FS, and a different one in NWA. They did this when they were still using videotapes. Surly it could be done now. All the move to Johnson will serve to do, is alienate the FS Audience. You could open a new facility in NWA without the negative publicity.
