Award Winning News!
UC's electronic media students at CCM must have been thrilled to see local TV news crews covering the annual black-tie student awards ceremony last night -- until they saw the 11 p.m. news.
Channel 12 showed Channel 12 General Manager Chris Sehring at the podium, and a quick sweep of the banquet goers at Northern Kentucky Convention Center.
Channel 9 showed Channel 9 anchor Clyde Gray, who received an award, and Channel 9 anchor Carol Williams, Channel 9 meteorologist Steve Raleigh and Channel 9 sports anchor Dennis Janson.
Neither station named any of the student winners at the 20th annual Frederic W. Ziv Awards.
But we saw the station executives and anchors. How many times have you seen more of Carol, Clyde or Cammy instead of those honored at community events? Isn't that how TV stations usually cover award-winning news?
