Frankly, Media Watch has devolved into only looking at radio news for many, many months. It's too bad that the Tucson Weekly doesn't have the (?) energy, cojones, interst in providing media news on a weekly basis.....pretty pathetic, and certainly not emblamatic of real journalism
Has TNN abandoned the 9 o'clock news on Channel 11? That may be the reason for the identity change?
RIP Forrest Carr.
"we're not libel?" It's "we're not liable." COPYEDIT--don't just depend on spell check.
Winds...4 hipsters no more no less.
What a waste
Does anybody actually watch Access Tucson?
KOLD's new graphics are very clunky. Really slows down the transition between stories. Please look into it. Heard it's a corporate mandate.
As to Chris Raboin, the last time I checked, anyone accused of a crime remains innocent until proven guilty.
Perhaps people are tuning out because the playlist is terrible (Sam Hunt) and repetitive.
Local TV news is a joke. They are all competing for a rapidly shrinking audience. What can you expect when in a half an hour there is only 16 minutes of actual content and the rest is commercials.
It will be gone in a few more years . It's also one of the biggest staffing costs for a station. Soon TV stations won't be able to afford the staffing.
The "it's summer so there are fewer people here" argument won't wash anymore. Maybe when Tucson was a small city, but now that there are close to a million in the area (city and county) there are plenty of people here year round. The amount of people who actually leave for the summer is probably less than 2% if that.
Speaking of Nielsen, any word on the November ratings book for our local TV stations?
Diaries, as a source of radio and, especially, TV ratings, are an absolute farce.
Shame on Arbitron and Nielsen for sampling listening and viewership as if it were still 1950.
I heard a strange noise the other day as I drove past Roger & Oracle roads. Best I can describe, it sounded like a concert of sales people NASH-ing their teeth.
Looks like Channel 13 has returned to calling itself "KOLD" and has some primary color graphics.
And KGUN appears to have some new graphics as well.
Gurule is moving to Santa Fe, N.M., where he will be a law enforcement public information officer.
Does anybody know what happened to Greg Gurule?
Every other week=very bad move!
Sorry to hear of another cutback in local media. Media Watch was the primary reason I continue to look forward to my Thursday email (yes, I gave up trying to find an unshredded paper Weekly a couple years ago). Now, I guess the online version might do well to offer alternative week issues of Media Watch and the Play with Yourself column, but only time will tell.
PS. I never watched "Community" when it was on TV, either.
Please don't confuse Acccess Tucson and Brink Media! Brink Media is a for profit company, beleaves in content control and is not public access but rather private access. Access Tucson is still alive and will be heading strongly into the future to provide true public access. Good luck Brink hope you don't loose the franchise fees from Cox the city gets.I do not see Cox liking a for profit company running a channel.
