Dawn patrol

Mark Raines, news director of KTHV called today to let us know about a press conference at the station at 10 a.m. Monday morning. Mum’s the word on the topic, though the only thing that might qualify in our minds for advance super-secret status is a rumor we heard last week that former KTHV anchor and one-time Ark. Times cover gal Dawn Scott would soon be making a triumphant return to KTHV.

Word is that Channel 11 has wooed Scott back from Seattle, where her physician husband has recently finished his residency. Word further is that Dawn will score a six-figure contract and a spot helming the 6 and 10 news.

Scott left Little Rock and went to Seattle’s KIRO TV in July 2002, but left that job over a year ago to work in pharmaceuticals.

This rumor has further parts about impact on existing on-air talent at KTHV, anchors Andy Pearson and Liz Massey.

When we first asked about the Scott rumor, KTHV station manager Larry Audas, blamed the Scott scuttlebutt on rivals. “I bet I know where you got that,” Audas said. “I’ll bet a competitor is trying to stir up some stuff here…. If these things were dispensed, I would think that I would have knowledge of them.”

Come to think of it, that’s not quite a no, is it?

We put the question to Raines again today. "Come to the news conference and find out." We will.

And even if Dawn is not coming back, this gives us an opportunity to again link the classic video of her being streaked during a standup during her Seattle days.
