Is is just me or do we see proportionately way more stores from Southern, Mo, Baxter, Green and Lawrence Counties than we do from the Jonesboro PD or the Craighead County Sheriff's office.

Most of the interviews from business people seem to be from somewhere outside Craighead County.

Is KAIT trying to keep the amount of crime in this area out of the public eye?

Am I the only that has noticed this?

I don't specifically know why they do it, but KAIT seems to be trying to appeal to more than just Jonbur. The 'viewing area' is more than Jonbur, so I suppose they might be showing how open minded they are by including all these other spots.

Besides, there is less crime there.

Jonesboro, Ark. is no longer part of Region 8.\

As of 1 January 2013 Region 7 and Region 14 cover the area formerly designated Region 8.\

Region 8 has been discontinued until an unregioned area is selected for regionization.\

Residents of the former Region 8 will be contacted and informed of their new Region assignments and relocation will begin no later than 1 March 2013.//

They think Region 8 stops at Nettleton. Nothing suit of there: no weather, no news, and a few sports segments. Tipton and Ryan only care about the north.
