question of the day: Is local television dead?
When was the last time you turned on the television to learn about your local politics? To find out if you should carry an umbrella tomorrow? To hear about local arts and entertainment and sports events? I’d guess you haven’t done so except perhaps during a disaster or very bad storm.
Is local television dead? Can it be saved? Should it be saved? If local TV is doing okay where you are, are there ways it could be improved? What would you like to see on local television that you’re not seeing?
