Every evening, WKRN-TV in Michiana broadcasts the top stories from the newsroom at KSDK in Kansas City, MO. It’s an afternoon show that covers local community news, features, and entertainment.
Although KSDK is in Kansas City and is the sister station to CBS, WKRN-TV is one of the largest TV stations in the region, and one of the country’s largest news/public affairs/entertainment broadcasts.
The show is owned by the Missouri Public Broadcasting, which is why you see the same anchors on the same screen and the same anchors on the same set of cameras. This is because KSDK is a noncommercial television station, meaning that it receives no tax money and thus cannot be profit-driven. There is a very good chance that if it is owned by a broadcast television network (ABC, CBS, FOX, or NBC) it will be an affiliate of their respective networks.
For those who want to know how the channel is funded, the channel is owned by Gannett, which is why you see the same anchors on the same set of cameras. Missouri Public Broadcasting owns KSDK, but the channel itself is a division of The Gannett Company, and Gannett is a multi-media company that owns newspapers, magazines, websites, and television stations.
As you might expect, the channel is funded by the tax dollars of our viewers, but it has been criticized for being “soft on conservative views,” “too liberal for the current times,” and “too liberal for our own personal comfort.” But that’s only part of the story. Our website highlights this story because it demonstrates the value of political advertising to our viewers, and in some cases, these advertisements are paid for by our viewers.
One of the reasons we launched our channel is to encourage more people to visit the site and watch our videos. We want that to happen because our videos are informative and entertaining. But we also want people to join our site and watch our videos, because they can see the value of our work.
To be honest, I’m not a big fan of politics myself. But I do like to watch them. I found Channel 25 to be a great opportunity to watch a segment of the news we have here in Michigan, and I was happy with the segment. I especially liked the part where they interviewed a group of former state workers who were involved in the energy industry. I’ve always been interested in energy and I’ve always been interested in politics.
Thats exactly my point. When you’re a state worker, you have no say in what goes on in your state. You just go about your business and do what you’re told to do.
Its the same thing with the news. If you want to watch the news, here in Michigan, or anywhere else for that matter, you have to subscribe to the channel. You can also sign up for a free trial and try to view some of the news at your own pace. That said, for those of you who dont subscribe, I recommend you watch the live stream, because it can be pretty intense.
I love the news in general. It’s not just that it’s a good source of information for people living in Michigan, but it can be fun to watch people you know go through the news process and see what they think of it. I think the reason I don’t like the news more is because there are so many competing news sources out there, and its hard to find what you want.
