Oh, and well I was off changing diapers, I see KXRM began a 6:30 p.m. newscast.

I'd always wondered why they didn't do an early newscast from the get-go.

Anyhoo: 6:30. Discuss.

A good question

A commenter asks: "are you really a BLOG when you posts something every 2-3 weeks? BLOG insinuates daily or at least WEEKLY updates. Otherwise you are simply posers trying to cash in on the stupidity of the facebook nation."

Now, in my defense, I've been out the last couple of weeks with a newborn baby (he's cute, he cries a lot, he poops a lot, he apparently requires no sleep to perform those primary functions).

But obviously, in recent months the TV blog has become a poor stepchild of the other Gazette blogs I contribute to (Out There and Business). I don't exactly have an announcement yet, but I will say we're taking steps to rectify the situation.

More to come...

Sawyer to replace Gibson

Charlie Gibson is retiring and Diane Sawyer will step behind the anchor desk.

My question: What does this mean for KRDO?
I think no change is good change for network news, which is clearly heading toward its last roundup. It will, nevertheless, be interesting to watch Sawyer's ratings relative to Couric and Brian Williams.
