When Big News Hits in a Small Market

Just to show you how different it is working in a small market.

When reports of an active shooter at Arkansas State University came in, it pushed Raycom owned KAIT, Jonesboro's only TV station to the limit.

In market 181, they cover the news differently.

KAIT News Director Josh White sent out a message to the Raycom affiliate hot list, apologizing for the delay in his station getting on the air. 

They could not break into programming until White himself was in the building to run the audio board.  

Ahhhhh....life in a small market.

FTVLive doubts that NDs in anything larger than 100 would even know what button to hit.
