Someone watches too much HGTV and DIY!

    It's not just a sports problem. A mic and a camera doesn't make people qualified.

    That's not good. I'll take care of it.

    Growing up I spent a lot of time at my grandparents, as a result watching local and national news on TV and reading the paper were things that were common. The lesson for me was to always be informed about what is going on locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. That's a lesson that I still practice today. Even with the internet to turn to, I still watch the local and national news on TV.

    My biggest gripe with news media today is in the rush to get the story out you see a severe lack of editing. I see it on a daily basis with stories posted online and on the ticker at the bottom of the screen.

    With that said, I think KATC does the best job covering news locally.

    1) KATC's over-the-air signal strength is stronger today than what it was in 1990, allowing viewers over a wider area to watch the station. In fact, I believe KATC's signal is now stronger than that of KLFY, whose signal took a nosedive about a decade ago. Those factors, along with a much larger population in the Lafayette DMA now than in 1990, have resulted in KATC to become the dominant station in this market in terms of newscast viewership. Having a superior product to the other stations also helps.

    2) Our audience is further fragmented today than it was in 1990. Back then, terrestrial TV was competing with only cable and satellite. Now, we're not only competing with cable and satellite for viewers, we're also competing with web, social media, mobile, and over-the-top technology (Alexa, etc.). The comments on this thread are proof of this. That's why broadcasters across the U. S.--KATC included--are making a concerted effort to boost their online, social media, and over-the-top presence. When you hear the slogan "KATC is everywhere," it's referring not only to all of the communities in our viewing area, but also to these non-traditional means of spreading information.

    3) This is not a "scam" to screw the sports department or viewers of sports content. I will admit that the new format is a work in progress. We're trying to figure out how to best implement it. I'll repeat my previous plea: Give us some time to work out the kinks.

    4) As for people losing faith in the Fourth Estate: Public media literacy would greatly help in that department. I'll save that rant for another day and another forum.
    Firstly, I'm not calling out KATC, but the
    local news. To bury a sports segment in the general news is a scam to me.
    I'd like to know when I might expect a news story about sports. Maybe I misunderstood your original post.

    Additionally I wasn't talking about individual stations gains and loses in viewers. I'm guessing that local news is getting fewer eyes proportional to those in the nineties.

    Thanks. It made EVERYONE look bad, from desk reporter on down.

    It's the world we live in. Someone uses a word wrong, like in this case, renovation, and it sticks.

    Saw the edit. Good job.

    I like KATC! Keeps me grounded and home, a place I love! So many Things are changing, how can something stay the same yet change to meet the ever changing media portals and their varied viewers.

    If it was Reagan sucking on the nipple of the CEO of Northrup Gruman it would be banned in a New York minute.

    Reagan was a corporate _____, who fleeced an entire generation of Americans into thinking he was a patriot.
