KCTV Sweeps Story Has It's Own Website!

Doug's station is at it again. If you're reading this before 11PM central on 11/1/07, this site is a crazy promotional tool for KCTV's first sweeps story.

That's crazy in a good way! URL's are cheap nowadays and stations should be using custom ones to promote good stories. The promotion here is, as usual, over-the-top...but I'd watch, so I guess it's working!

Director's Make Great TV

So my morning anchor has a blog...and he's been doing behind the scenes all week. It was my turn today!

But seriously, he couldn't have posted something more interesting than an Early Show weather cut-in!!

Great story? Or, greatest story?

I leave it up to you. Don't just read the text, click on the camera.

Now that you've seen it, some thoughts...

1) How would you like to be the photog on that story? "Think we got enough b-roll?" "No, get some more of the crap over there."

2) Is there a better description line on a chyron than "Works at Denny's"?

3) What other alliteration phrases can you think of for "leave a log"?

Yeah, this one has Emmy winner written all over it.
