TV News

KKTV/Channel 11 is moving up the start date for its new MyKKTV 9 p.m. newscast to Friday, since KXRM/Channel 21 is signing off its newscast a day early on Thursday, to give it time to move the set down to Fox21's new studio.

I sat in on KXRM's first practice newscast last night. They were having some pretty significant technical issues, but the guys did eventually make it through the show. They're confident they can work the technical stuff by Monday for their first live newscast. I'd guess that the first show will not be glitch-free, but it seems like they're close enough that things will pull together... with a few late nights from the engineers and production crew.

I've got a behind-the-scenes story on the Fox newscast running Sunday in the Life section. KXRM is running their own half-hour documentary on creating a newscast that will run at 9 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Compare and contrast!

i watched the "last" of the old fox21 tv show . it didnt say anything about the new fox 21 that takes over on monday night. what a farce! at least the lady tv anchor should say something about being on for 10 years.

I can't believe they are moving the old set over. I'm glad to see Barrington is being as cheap as possible.
