« on: January 03, 2011, 05:37:10 pm »

For the station who claims to be "Home of the Razorbacks" - does anyone find it odd that they keep their main guy on the sideline and send in the former ''intern'?  Word back home is that Sullivan is in the studio and just said it wasn't "all football" today and that he would have Corliss Williamson on talking about UCA basketball..... yes, Scott Inman is here and doing a great job - but KATV sure spends a lot of money on a guy who's claim to fame is "Sully's Little Heroes" and UCA athletics...  geez dude -- it's one of the biggest successes in college football and you're home covering bulls&i^

My sense from living in AR for 40 years and now living in CO for the past 6 is that KATV has lost the mojo...

the NWA stations are better for Hog coverage and maybe even KARK

KATV is only good for the coaches show. I watch KARK since THV has that Mark Edwards guy who is just horrible.

I tend to watch KARK since they broadcast Hog sports from the network guys up in NWA.  Although I'm also starting to watch KHTV(11) since they are now fulltime HD with the news.  Channel 7 has usually always had the hotties though...seems to be losing it some.  They just lost that Holly woman, who was smokin' hot and deserved way more airtime.  Come to think of it, they don't hardly have any hotties anymore like they used to.  They still have Beth Hunt in the morning, but even one of the blonde girls made a move to Channel 4.

Sully is worthless covering anything except crappy little kids games and LR high schools!  His nose has been out of joint since he was snubbed from having any part of Razorback announcing duties!  He is an ASU grad and covers UCA which is NOT DIVISION I FOOTBALL! Sully has laid down since he created Friday night TDS years ago! He USED to be good but no longer!

Thanks for the thread.  I had been meaning to ask everyone about this.  I went home to Little Rock and wife's home of Clinton over Christmas holidays and was surprised when watching the local news.  KATV was hard to watch it was so bad, the fox station was decent but seemed young and kark had a solid newscast.  Didn't get to watch KTHV and wish i did.  Does KATV still carry hog games are who has the hog network now?

After Paul died, Frank/UofA and KATV basically had a war over who should be the VOTR.  When the UofA went with ISP sports, that got rid of ARSN, which KATV had control over.

One of the reasons I moved back from that armpit of a region known as NWA was the idiots up there that were on TV...they can't carry the micorphone of Steve Sullivan....KATV is considered a huge stepping stone in the career of many a journalist...

I agree completely.  He sucks in terms of what he emphasizes.  HS sports is the thing he cares about most because he gained so much attention for it.  KATV's Hog coverage sucks now, since Paul is gone.  I think we all know who would be anchoring coverage from New Orleans if Paul were still alive, and it ain't some newbie who's barely out of college.

Sully is maybe the best high school sports anchor ever. He's not lazy he gets kids names and really works hard. KARK never has the info at the same time as the highlight(high school) and I cant tell u how many times they have reversed a score and had a team winning that lost. They went down hill when he left for KATV. I watch KARK bc they have way more coverage of the Razorbacks which is mainly all I care about but their horrible. When Bo was on he made the corniest jokes and Aaron Peters does the same thing. They have "technical difficulties" on about 90% of their shows and usually more than once. I like AP and Bo much more on the radio than on air. But u cant beat their amount of coverage and a report from the hill on every episode. The new recruiting report with RD during the RN-Pig Trail show is awesome. Feel sorry for Kerry Ohara, she just cringes when the tech guys screw up a feed. I prefer KARK but KATV is more professional. One thing KATV has that I started watching this year is the Hog Zone Saturday  post game show, thats a nice post game show. But KARK seems to be more dedicated to the Razorbacks for general news.

KATV used PE's position as VOTR to pimp their sports effort.  For Dale Nicholson it was never about the Hogs; it was always about KATV.  Paul's paycheck came from KATV and Nicholson.  VOTR was for PR only.

Yeah, that's her.  To me, the hottest person that was in the local news.  The tiny girl that did the news yesterday is really cute too.  Can't remember her name, but she's tiny with brunette hair. Ah, her name is Stephanie Simoni.

Since KATV lost ARSN, they are mailing it in.

I will say, the loss of the great Paul Eells, is tough to overcome. That said, the station doesn't have the financial interest it has had for the last 40 years to support the Hogs.

I have to point out the obvious.  KATV sports and news coverage is  dominated by ASU people.....What do you expect when you leave the fox to guard  the hen house?

It's all about $$$$'s.  Hog sports brings in much more revenue for the station than UCA, H.S. football and little heroes ever will..Also, Scott Inman is an ASU grad and does a top notch job for the hogs...

I can't stand hearing Inman do basketball. He is always guessing what the call is by the ref instead of reporting and gets tongue tangled way too much. Blake Eddins on color is really good. He is in the Raftery mode of color guys who give insight but doesn't take himself so serious.
