Sometimes, the news makes news. Earlier this week, it was widely reported that St. Louis’s KTVI (Channel 2) was one of nine television stations across the country being put up for sale by its owner, News Corp.
Channel 2 does a very good job covering news in St. Louis and it produces a series of lively, informative local broadcasts. John Pertzborn never fails to make me laugh in the morning. Charles Jaco brings the same intensity to covering news in St. Louis that he brought to covering war in the Persian Gulf. The KTVI website is particularly useful.
I hope that its next owners build on those successes - and continue to inform and entertain us. But, then again, why wouldn’t they?
