She can't be all bad


Tomorrow's TV Talk column is a preview of KXRM/Channel 21's new morning news, which launches on Monday. While I was going through the story, I googled new reporter Meaghan Collier to check the spelling of her name and stumbled across this.

If I ever got a shout-out on the Onion, that would definitely go on my resume. Probably at the top.

And speaking of the Onion, does that story appear to be disturbingly... factual? What's next, we're going to start getting our national news from The Daily Show? Oh wait...

BTW, this week's TV Talk will be back in its old spot on the Pop page on the back of the Life section. The editors told me it was because of some big package they're running on the cover, but I think they may just be sick of reading about "another new local newscast." I'm somewhat hopeful that Fox's morning news will be the last big change and I can get on with the business of making fun of the network's fall schedules.

Is it possible to see a cross cooperation with fox 21 in the morning already being shown in the afternoon on koaa's weather channel?

Huh? You mean with the newspaper? If so, probably not. The cross promotion loses its mojo if it's not an exclusive deal.

Wishful thinking! Get your typing fingers ready. There's another big change coming faster than you can say "carpal tunnel."

It will build and given time it will do well. Many FOX affilates have local morning news and have been competitve towards the national programs.

I am watching it now and its weakness is that they don't someone else doing the traffic. But then again KRDO Radio is were you go for traffic and NOT KRDO-TV.

I am surprised on the time table of KXRM's self produced newscasts. The 9PM newscast has done quite well.
