The Death of Local News: One-On-One with Mark Hyman
Local News Coverage is disappearing in America City-by-City. Critics of Television News shrug and say, “So What?” But when it happens in your town, it can be devastating. Think about it. No news from City Hall, no local traffic, no local weather. Sure. You can log on and check your phone, but if there are no local reporters, or news people, or meteorologists, who is there for you? An answer is usually a person working for a major conglomerate in another city, hundreds of miles from your home.
This scenario I described is happening in Casper, Wyoming. But there is a small but vocal grassroots effort to revive local news. It may result in the birth of a television station called Casper 1 - TV at a Higher Elevation.
Former News Director Mark Hyman is my guest on One-On-One. We talk about "Casper 1 - TV at a higher Elevation," and more.
