ABC 40/29’s rating of 8.0 out of 10 is based on a number of factors. KHOG Arkansas is the sister station to ABC 40/29 KHBS. They share the same website, TV scheduling and broadcast facilities. The only difference is that KHOG’s broadcast area originates in Fayetteville. Thus, KHOG’s broadcast radius extends farther into Southwest Missouri. Other than that, it’s the same operation as KHBS, so our review of KHBS extends to KHOG.
In reviewing the website of ABC 40/29 KHBS, we can’t help but to be a little disappointed. KHBS, along with its sister station KHOG, are unquestionably the news leaders for Northwest Arkansas. In 2015, for example, the duo was up for almost 30 Emmy Award Nominations. And 2015 was no fluke, either: Year-in and year-out KHBS/KHOG rack up prestigious awards for news journalism and production.
Unfortunately, the presentation and quality of the KHBS/KHOG website just match up to their impressive news credentials. Yes, the site does offer live streaming of its newscasts. But other than that, it’s really a mediocre site. The Top Video Section is cramped and not inviting. The rest of the front page is swamped with hard to read links and an outdated video gallery. The site reminds of of the WSB News out of Atlanta: Great news credentials and a lame web presence.
Like KHBS, KHOG 4029 TV is owned by Hearst Television.
Since the KHOG Arkansas call sign was inspired by the mascot for The University of Arkansas, the KHOG sports department is the go-to source for the latest news and highlights on the Arkansas Razorbacks. Unfortunately, the 4029 TV website is poorly constructed and it doesn’t even have a clear link to its Sports Section. More about our rating method.
