The three TV anchors

I’d like to know some comments or questions to lay on Fox 21’s Dan Hanger, WDIO’s Darren Danielson, and KBJR’s Kevin Jacobsen for “Final Edition” tomorrow. Even though it airs at 6 p.m. on KUWS (91.3FM), we record the program at 12:30, so we’ll need your suggestions before then. Serious or not so serious, let’s have at it. Thanks.

Julie Moravchik

I’m surprised there isn’t a conversation going on here about the firing of Fox 21 News Director Julie Moravchik. Is this just inside baseball media stuff? It seems there are a lot of people who have strong opinions about this. How much does TV journalism or journalists matter?

Ed Fitz radio doc to air tonight

The annual airing of the 2-1/2 hour documentary We’re Holding Our Own: The Sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald will be tonight at 7 p.m. on KUWS-FM (91.3 Superior, 102.9 Ashland). The ore carrier sank in eastern Lake Superior with no distress calls, no witnesses and most tragically, no survivors. This doc was produced by Wisconsin Public Radio over a five-year period and aired November 10, 1995 on the 20th anniversary of its sinking. Two-and-a-half hours seems like a long time, but it moves pretty fast and doesn’t have Gordon Lightfoot’s song all over it.
