Is there anyone else out there getting sick and tired of our local tv station reporting news out of Missouri. I know they have an affiliate station in Missouri but this is getting ridicolus. Have they fired all the local reporters. There are plenty of news stories to report on. They are even reporting on news as far away as Columbia and Jefferson City Missouri. This is out of hand. Kait does not even have the signal strength to reach that far away. If they want to report on Missouri news they need to pull their little crappy station out of here and take it elsewhere. We need a new station. A station that reports our news and not news in another state. They are no longer my good little neighbor station. I could care less what is happening in upstate Missouri unless its national news. Anyone else out there agree?

I stopped watching that crappy podunk station years ago. The stories are stupid as well as the reporters. They're an embarrassment to the community.

I have to agree with you on this for sure. I don't always have time to watch the live broadcast so therefore I turn to their webpage to catch up. It really urks me when there are stories on MO towns. It's not like those people in those towns actually use KAIT for their local news source. I have family in 3 different parts of SE MO which KAIT considers being in their 'broadcasting area' and not 1 of those households use KAIT nor do most of the people in those areas.

I don't blame the local staff and managers as much as I blame the corporate honchos. Look at any of the stations owned by that media group and their stations all fit the same format. They all seem to have the same syndicated inserts like Mr Food and whatever Hollywood news service they use now. It's lost any local flavor to it. They re-cut ABC stories and have a local personality (notice I didn't use "reporter" here) lay in new voice overs. Pretty generic like a chain restaurant, their product is unoriginal and bland.

BOOORRRING! Everything they report on was in the morning newspaper or has already been reported to death on CNN all day. Never anything of local interest. Gotta watch a Memphis channel to see what's happening in Jonesboro.
