Ya'll rock! At least it's better than what passed for news on WKPT before. The awkward moments are priceless entertainment value.

Will someone raise Joe the weatherman's chair up a little? And turn the treble up on the sound - sometimes it sounds like they're talking out of a barrel. Less staring at the camera - like after saying "...back after this...", and just before it switches to commercial maybe they could sometimes mute the sound, have the news team turn to each other and at least act like they're having a conversation during the commercial.

They will become more polished with time. They seem more excited than nervous. Just happy Kingsport is at least trying to compete in the evening news. Maybe Joe should study the suave moves of Mark Reynolds as he glides across the weathermap tossing out a "thirty two degrees and warm" here and a "clear and cloudy" over there.

BTW if there are any job openings for a reporter, I can suavely, polishedly, speak in front of a camera. And I'll do so shirtless and barefoot in the snow if necessary.

Check it: "Hello, everybody, this is your action news reporter with all the news that is news across the nation on the scene at the supermarket. There seems to have been some disturbance here. Pardon me, sir, did you see what happened?"

Suave, I say.

I don't live in Kingsport anymore. Did WKPT start the news back up today? Or when?

Ok I got an idea for wkpt's newsteam. Just hear me out on this one. You lnow that homeless guy you see walking down stone drive? His name is jack campbell and he's about as crazy as a shithouse rat. Ok anyway, we got a cameraman to follow him around with live feed and well call it the JACKCAM. Occasionally right before commercial breaks and the whole time during the credits the background will be the JACKCAM. Here's how it would go.

They will improve with time. But until then, it's good times tuning in just to watch deer-in-the-headlights action. It seems like the people behind the scenes need to improve on when they direct who to say what sometimes. I hate to criticize because I'm really glad Kingsport even has a news team now and again, it's fun to watch.

What bugs me is WKPT and all their associated stations have screwed up sound. One minute it's barely audible, like in a barrel. Later the sound will be so jarring loud it's painful. If you tune into their stations, you'd better keep your sound system controller nearby.

They should do a "behind the scenes" harlem skake video and "accidentally" release it. That would get some attention. Better do it before the other news stations do!
