Remembering Seattle's 'news out of the box'
Originally aired: Wednesday, February 15, 2017
In spite of all the ways to get news these days, fake or otherwise, local TV is a place where many people still turn to find out what's going on.
Around here, KCPQ, KING, KIRO and KOMO all offer newscasts multiple times per day, via TV and the web. The newscasts all include well-groomed video newscasters, weathercasters, and sportscasters delivering stories from glitzy sets. Giant monitors play video, the telegenic journalists point to super-sized graphics, and cameras jump around the set to hear from reporters and other members of the news, traffic, weather and sports team.
