Station Separates Opinion and News

August 12th, 2009 · 29 Comments

WAVE-TV, like everyone else, reported on Monday’s local protest in front of John Yarmuth’s office. It was promoted by the Republican Party. Though we didn’t see him on camera, GM Steve Langford was there as a partipant, and WAVE added a disclaimer to its story, noting Langford’s presence. I don’t recall a local station executive [...]

Fancy Coverage

August 3rd, 2009 · 15 Comments

For Fox41 and WLKY-TV, the Fancy Farm picnic wasn’t a compelling news item. The idea of sending a news crew to the Saturday picnic three hours away was either too expensive, too much trouble or simply not newsworthy enough. Neither station is hanging its hat on political coverage. WLKY dropped its Frankfort reporter last year [...]
