Local Newscasts

It’s interesting to me how different news time slots can be on the same channel.  I like to watch KTUL Channel 8 in the mornings and at night.  They’re totally different experiences.  At 9 A.M. Good Day Tulsa airs, which is a typical morning news show.  They start out with some local news stories, but as the morning progresses, it becomes increasingly more relaxed.  It features many on set interviews with local people seeking to raise awareness in the community.  The anchors also venture out into the city and the show features live interviews from all over the place, from local restaurant openings to live events.  The 10 P.M. broadcast is much more formal and serious.  The stories are mostly formatted with a voice over done over the video with some sound clips mixed in.  This has to be done to keep the pace of the newscast moving.  In my opinion, both types of news shows serve their purpose, educating people on different aspects of the community.
