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

All the good journalists got better jobs. Whoever is left is simply the residue left behind.

It’s Custer’s parade of advocacy journalism on TV5. Aloof Franklin and ostrich neck on 12. And the all-white front four on 25/66.
