Covering the coverage
UPDATE: At 6 p.m., KOAA's James Jarman said, "This is not a story that 5&30 would normally report on at this time, but this story is spreading like wildfire in the media."
Um, OK then.
OK, KK led with the story at 4:30 (but didn't have much to say), KOAA led with it and referred to an interview with Bob Loevy from CC later in the newscast. And KRDO? They alluded to the story and then went into a 5-minute weather segment. That. Is. Insane.
Tak Landrock did get to the story a few minutes later, and promo'd that they'd hear from the accuser at 6. I don't know if they didn't have the video, or just wanted to wait to get to it. I say, throw everything you've got out there. Only way to do it.
KOAA, btw, doesn't appear to have it on their Web site yet [EDIT - They did at 6]. KRDO reports it, but credits the Denver Post? What's up with that?
NBC national news did the story, basically picking up KUSA's coverage. I didn't see anything on CBS or ABC.
FYI, KUSA says they have at least one of the voicemails and they may play it tonight. Polish up your antenna!
