You have reporters and anchors doing “graphics training” too! Remember the good old days when graphics were created by actual graphic artists?

I will agree, usually that is a small-market issue. But budgets do make or break.

Ah, the duopoly is owned by Meredith. About the only owner out there more incompetent than Scripps and Tegna. That speaks volumes!

I didn’t realize Meredith bought KTVK until that article. I know they have owned KPHO for years.

As someone who grew up watching WNEM TV5 News, I can truly say I wish Meredith would get out of the broadcasting business. Watching what happened to their news operation there - from being the best, most professional around to a damn near laughing stock with horrible reporters and story telling - is a true testament to their incompetence
