KXRM open post

Chime in with any thoughts about either my story on KXRM/Channel 21's newscast, or what you'd like to see the new kids on the block do or not do.

And, although this post bumps the Hal Kennedy obit, stop for a second and remember one of the giants in Colorado Springs television. Really, maybe the giant.

I'm happy to hear that the new newscast won't be doing the live shot in front of the closed building. That's a major pet peeve of mine.

I also hope they stick to local news. I don't understand why the local news stations cover so much national news. If I want national news, I'll turn to CNN or Fox.

And sports is not news! My ultimate pet peeve is when a station (KOAA, I'm looking at you) leads off the newscast with the Broncos game.

I'm happy also that joe cole bought those pani p2 models. Then those big hulky dvc-pros that " most" of the three tv nets have in colorado springs. But i think that those tv cams reminds me of these cheap cable tv outlets that i remember way back in 1980s..and no more tv production people at fox 21 needed any more. I guess..thats progress. no more people needed! dont even apply .with 250 resumes and mr cole didnt even advetise the positions and i dont even put my app there.. that my opinion ,at least koaa-tv had an ad there for people..

Good luck with watching that mykktv garbage. You must work over at kk. The ratings for mynetwork acrossed the nation are landing in the category of dashes and ones. Can't even get a clear picture locally.

Uhhh... does anyone else get the feeling one person is having a conversation with his/herself here?

KXRM is definately doing this on the cheap... but let's face it, whoever does the best job with the smoke and mirrors wins. If KXRM can convince people they are the best, they will continue to draw in viewers no matter how stingy they are being with staff and resources.

IF the biggest story on that day in sports...sports should lead. If weather is the big news story of the day, weather should lead. If 10 people get botulism for whatever reason, consumer stories should lead. This reasoning that a newscasts should be stacked news/weather/sports in that order every single night regardless of story importance is OLD TV thinking! Newspapers do this all the time (biggest story gets the main headline) and it's about time TV caught up.

Do viewers really look at the quality of the video? The difference between the cameras will make a slight difference but not enough to make any regular viewer really concerned. (IMHO)
I think what we should be looking for is the quality of the news product. Will Fox get stories the others won't? Will the reporters be seasoned enough to ask the right questions during a live interview? (not like the college station quality of many KRDO questions).
Will the live shots be there with only one (mastless) live truck? The NEWS STORIES are the key! (IMHO)
And finally (and most important)... will the new ladies of Fox21 be a popular addition to News Blab??? ;-)

Lets face it KKTV wanted to focus on their digtial channel which is the main reason why they discontinued their news partership with KXRM. Sure KXRM has their work cut out for them. However KKTV allowed Stephanie and Terry to move to KXRM. Joel Cole does not count since he servered his ties with KKTV last year.

Since KXTU-LP got The CW affliation KKTV had to go with MyNetwork TV for their second channel.

its my hope to see koaa-tv 5/ 30 gets new studio cams . they are running for 10yrs ikegamis hk-343s . i hope with this new tv station will bring in compettion in this tv market. they need it also.but mini dv with panisonic p2?? heck. better off with ikegami or sony. thats a lot of people trying to get into tv as a reporter or production at kxrm21 .250 resumes wow..and he didnt even advertise the positions..im better off being in electronics than this..

for all the hoopla about technology, it looks pretty low budget. Nice rip-off of the KKTV "look" on the rundown slug super
