State of the media?
An anonymous poster put this up in comments a couple days back (just noticed it, sorry). A potentially interesting question:
"i posted this a couple posts back... but thought it might get more responses up here.i'm curious about the tv "atmosphere" in colorado springs... specifically KRDO. what stations are good to work at and which ones are leading in the ratings. also, if you would be so kind, can i get a brief history of the recent happenings at the stations? thanks very much. greatly appreciated."
I greatly appreciate people who can find the "shift" key, but that may be because I'm a giant newspaper dork.
Hmmm, from the people I've talked to at KRDO, it seems like the atmosphere might be described as "improving" - YMMV. I'll leave the good stations to work for question to the people who work at stations.
Gotta laugh at the "brief history" question, though. If you can summarize everything that's happened in local TV in the last two years in less than a book, you're doing pretty well: KKTV fires its anchor team, brings in new crew, KRDO sold, KXRM starts own newscast, KXRM and KKTV start digital subchannels, Matt Meister swears on-air, everyone and their brother adds half a dozen new newscasts to their schedules, local TV icon Hal Kennedy passes, KKTV gets satellite truck, everyone gets new weather systems, entire nation descends on Springs for Haggard lovefest, everyone but Fox starts a radio partnership, KOAA starts a newspaper partnership (or will, I suppose)... I dunno, is that the highlights?
Busy and competitive times in local news.
