KITV Election Coverage

Well, I guess it is only fair.

Not long ago I made a lot of noise about what a great job KITV did with the earthquake coverage. Tonight I am here to tell you that our election coverage was a mess. I wasn't in the control room so perhaps tomorrow I'll find out what was going on, but TECHNICALLY we had a tough night.

My computer would not join the network, despite being checked out an hour earlier, several sites had terrible audio problems, we had officials telling us one thing and then contradicting their statements later, graphic template problems, It was a mess and it feels pretty junk to go home from.

Get all the ugly details at our website, where Brent kept a "behind the scenes of election coverage" blog.

Peace, Love, and the Show-Must-Go-On,

Maybe there was an eeriness that permeated, not only the station, but over the entire country----how good to remember that "all things work together for good to those that love the Lord." There is a purpose in it all!
