• As with what apparently happened to local radio news, when local advertisers decide that the expense of advertsing on local TV is not worth the cost, it too will die.
    Quite frankly, when I moved to Victoira 7 years ago, I was surprised that no local news radio existed and truely miss local flavor to programming. To say nothing of having zero immediate coverage of potentially dangerous situations (hurricane, plant fire, etc).
    Continue to "SELL" your paper, Mr. Cobler. I suspect efforts (or lack there of) to promote and maintain relavance is what killed local radio, and will ultimately lead to the demise of local TV as well.

  • your market study is biased!!  they missed me.  lol.  Now poll HS student athletes in the region...I bet 7 out of 10 watch Brubaker.  Then add 1 for the parents.   The guy has a following.  He is that good.   IMO he is KAVU.
    Brubaker Drive at the athletic complex is deserving.

  • I'd like to watch the local TV news, but after much trying, I just can't listen to on-air people who forget they have a microphone close to their mouths and when they take a breath, it sounds like some who is drowning and gasping for air.  I know that small markets are where people train and get experience, but I just can't listen to the gasping for air.  Therefore, I read the newspaper.  It's a lot more quiet.
