The one thing that most media outlets do the worst job covering is themselves.
That’s why Publicity Hounds who want an inside peek at the personalities and politics at local TV news stations should head over MediaBistro’s TV Spy blog.
You’ll find news about:
- Which anchors, reporters and meteorologists are coming or going at local TV stations.
- Which ones have made the news because they’ve been charged with crimes, like the San Diego meteorologist charged with performing a lewd act, and former NY1 political reporter Dominic Carter who returned to New York television after a two-year absence that included a very public domestic abuse trial and three weeks of jail time.
- How local reporters are making national news, like this story about the three reporters drafted by the “Early” show to report on their communities’ reaction to President Obama’s new jobs bill.
Be sure to read the blog comments, where more juicy tidbits are buried.
