"KVII-TV News Policy"

Recommended Posts

Found this at a Facebook group.  Years before they became Hunt Valley-ed, the news policy of KVII was actually printed in a local magazine (article is undated, I'm not sure when it could have been, but it was definitely before the end of the 1980s), from then-lead anchor/news director John McKissack.  Amazing in so many ways.  A station being allowed to tell all regarding newsgathering.  Wouldn't happen now, especially now that KVII is a station owned by the Hunt Valley-ers.

 

I thought posting this would be a nice refreshing look back at how most TV newsgathering likely was, and probably should be again.

(Sorry if this is a wrong spot, couldn't figure out where else to post it)

I seem to remember WEAR in Pensacola had a similar statement when Peter Neumann was their news director.  And this was well into the Sinclair era.  It was posted on their website and may be archived on the way back machine. He left in 2006 to become News Director at WPTA in Fort Wayne.  Even for years after, WEAR seemed to have a more balanced approach to news...it would start to change into the early 2010s right before Sinclair also got their hands on WPMI in Mobile as well.

 

He worked with Tom Scanlan who founded WGTU/WGTQ in Traverse City along with later signing on WBKB in Alpena.  Tom was even a General Manager at WEAR for a time, under Heritage's ownership.

 

UPDATE: Here's a grab from the wayback machine....
