this morning I called Suddenlink, and they said that TV99 was going live in March, but could't say much about programming.

So then I called Local TV99's office, and they said they were going live, in March with News, Weather and Sports in Paris. He called it "99News Now". The guy also said that they were going to broadcast the channel live on the web too. They are moving into their new studios this week he said.

This is great! Maybe this will force the PN to step up and be a real newspaper.

Curious, I'm just curious how you called suddenlink? Everytime I try to call them I give up after ending up in Tyler.

I hope you are all right about this. It would be nice to have local news. I watch 99 some already. I like Jamey's show. She used to live on my street when she was a kid. I worked with her grandmother at one time. She was a great cook.I often wonder if she ever taught Jamey to cook. Somebody must have. I have a son her age, and they went to school together.

I absolutely LOVE Tv Channel 99! Especially FYI. She always seems to know exactly what I want! Whether it's bird feeders made from stray pots, barbie doll organizers made from shoe holders, or a fun and interesting way to combine my various cereals, Jamie has the skills!

It looks like this thing is going to fly after all. They are supposed to go live Monday afternoon 5pm. I heard they bought some big building downtown, my brother was doing the work on it 2 weeks ago.

I heard that Dave Johnson was the lead anchor. Don't remember who the weather guy is but he used to be in radio too, and I don't know who sports is.

I'll bet 10 to 1 that Jamie is involved, don't be surprised if Daryl Felsberg (the "big" comedian) shows up.

Wyatt Bowden will probably sneak in as well.

Don't get me wrong I think it's great. Paris needs something like this, the paper sucks, and the radio is not very good either. Just hope they don't cheese it up too much.

the tv station sounds interesting for sure. i will definitely be tuning in to see what it's all about.

not that i care all that much but i don't get why everyone is hating on the paris news so much though. i definitely agree that it isn't the best newspaper but i don't think it's as terrible as all of you claim it is. just seems like throwing in cheap shots at the paper is the 'cool' thing to do here.

The newspaper just seems to always be a few days late reporting newsworthy events, or they just don't report it at all.

Now all we need is a good local magazine. Maybe Walt Brown or somebody can put one together for us.

oh, i guess the reason i didn't notice the paper was so bad was because all i read is the sports section and it's good for the most part
