I haven’t watched CTV past 9:00 p.m. in a long time. I endured it tonight and I have a a message to Community Television of Knoxville. You folks down at CTV need to cut the Friday night 9 p.m. Call in Live Show. The show is One on One with Hubert Smith. During the 8:30 p.m. hour Politics Knox with Host City Councilman Steve Hall is broadcast live and receives multiple calls every week. Smith probably requested his show be aired at 9:00 p.m. hoping to gain the loyal dedicated viewers and callers of Politics Knoxville. Tonight, Smith received NO phone calls. So, it is time for CTV to cut the embarrassment of his self promotion of his Sunday morning radio show.
CTV should encourage Laurie Alford to do a weekly call in show on Education issues. The first Friday of each month, Politics Knox has allowed Laurie Alford to do a Politics Knox Education show. The past 5 months have proven that Alford is far more engaging and informative to the community than Smith’s self promoting show. So, come on CTV put the One on One show elsewhere and give the 9:00 p.m. slot to an engaging, educated and informative host.
Smith ended the show tonight by saying “I enjoy sitting here running my mouth uninterrupted” Well, you may but we don’t.
