Over It

Gregory, AR

When is Lauren Payne going to give it up and realize that this is just not the job for her? How many newscasts does she have to screw up? We have made a game out of "guess how many screwups Lauren Payne can make in one broadcast". Its become quite comical. Please sister, do the hearing world a favor and just stop talking and do the sighted world a favor and seek professional make up and hair help. For a further wish , never, EVER, wear sleeveless again. That my friend, was a total trainwreck!

Agreed! I'm sure she is a super sweet person however this job does not fit her. Her speech patterns are all wrong. This just does not work for her. Period. Find a different job sweetheart.

I want to know when KAIT is going to start being a real TV channel. Their news broadcast are a joke. I don't give a $hit what happens in Missouri. All they do is rehash the news from their sister station.

Did anyone see the news at 10 last night? That story about the people stealing credit card numbers just about sent me over the edge. They just kept showing pics from the police station..the cars, the lights on the cars, close-ups of the emblems on the cars, the signs in the parking lot, etc., with a couple of shots of Det. Waterworth thrown in. If I hadn't been waiting to see the piece on 911 misuse I would've turned it off. They drive me nuts.

I believe that everyone that works there is a great person outside of the station. But people like Josh Harvison, buddy you need to sit down in front a mirror and read lines to yourself or drive around town and practice saying them out loud. You talk like a robot. He says sentences in segments of words, not with a smooth flow. Then how can you have a weather girl who cooks but is also on the morning program? Are they that short staffed? Or are they trying to get that much out of their programming staff? If you would like my opinion, they should try updating their background props more than anything! Tune to KATV or WREG an look at their backgrounds props. It just feels and looks more like a tv station. KAIT has always had that college tv look to it. We can all only hope that Hatton Weeks will read these post and bring in a better fashion expert, a better interior decorator, and maybe hold class after the news to teach them not to talk like robots!

I agree that the KAIT news is a ridiculous program. Hands down the worst reporting I have ever seen. Most of their stories are inflated puff pieces. Where is the "real" news? I stick to reading the Jonesboro Sun for reliable local news.

You can get, more, reliable, news from the Memphis stations. Stories which should be in KAIT's area, are not covered by ch.8, but you can bet, if it's within 60 miles of the Mississippi River, Memphis stations will have it. And what's up with the photography? I don't know where they got their photojournalists, but I could do better with my Nikon. How about trying to film a whole scene, first, then tighten up on individual segments? At least people can get a feel for, what the background is.

Not to continue the pick on Lauren thing but is it possible that she can do any news cast without looking down at a peice of paper, computer, whatever it is she is looking at??? Im not sure how you can see her face to critique her make up when her head is down CONSTANTLY!!! I have to agree, this is just not the job for her. Kait needs to wise up and do some house cleaning. This is crazy. I've started watching Memphis instead.

Ok so are all of yall qualified to do their job? I bet all of them would let you try and after 1 story yall would be quitting! They do the best they can with what they have, you need to understand the anchor's listen to their directors, producers and ppl in master control so its not always their fault! How would you like someone at your job watching everything you do 24/7? They are common ppl trying to make a living like the rest of us and I know K8 doesn't pay well at all so get off their case gosh

Ok, so are you qualified to speak on behalf of all the Kait employees? I think not. I mean I know you are doing the " best you can with what you have" however all the grammar mistakes and spelling errors you have just doesnt qualify you to be a speaker on their behalf. You go on and watch the BOZO news show if you would like but stop thinking you can speak for everyone becuse it cant pay well. Gosh!

Rich. LMAO has the audacity to criticize the grammar of the KAIT news team then peppers his/her post with misspellings and poor usage. Good thing all you're required to do at your job is punch the button with the picture of the Big Mac!
