Channel 13 increases product integration and paid programs as entertainment



Station VP/GM Jim Prather puts a positive spin on what is really product placement in long form commercials wrapped in a news-ish co-host environment.

"We will showcase those people who have built businesses and careers in Las Vegas, residents and tourists who enjoy the life and lifestyle, and those talented and hard-working people who do an exemplary job providing a great value and great experience for families and customers all over the valley."

"Sponsors will have the opportunity to be featured in video postcards," Prather continued in his statement. "These segments will be shot on location at the advertiser's business, giving them a chance to tell their story, in their own words. This will be a unique advertising opportunity for people who want more than a commercial and a unique viewing opportunity for people who want to know more about Las Vegas."

First "official" governors race debate August 29


Republican Brian Sandoval and Democrat Rory Reid are scheduled to square off August 29th.
The debate will air on television stations in both Las Vegas and Reno, and will be streamed live over the internet. Education will be the focus of the debate. Both Sandoval and Reid have presented plans to improve Nevada’s education system without raising taxes, but the two men differ on how student performance can be improved.

Reagan, Hope and Cash

    
Remember when Ronald Reagan was president?

At that time, we also had Bob Hope and Johnny Cash.


Now, we have Obama no hope and no cash.

·         How will the upcoming budget shortfall affect K-12 education, class size and the ability of our students to go to college?
·         Higher education has seen 30% cuts in the last three years.  How will further cuts impact the ability of students to graduate college?  What will happen to the Millennium Scholarship?
·         Will Nevada be able to produce the doctors, nurses, engineers and other professionals we need?
·         How can we protect education?

“This is too important to leave to the career politicians,” says Candidate Lynn Goya.  “We all need to work together to protect education and get our economy  moving in the right direction again. Join me and let’s get it done.”


Local News for Small Towns from AOL


"Every big Web publisher, and lots of small ones, too, have tried to figure out how to crack the market for local Web ads. No one's figured it out yet. But AOL feels good enough about Patch, its take on local, to take a minute to boast about its performance. Tim Armstrong's company is announcing that has now opened up 100 Patch outposts--digital versions of community newspapers, each staffed by a sole full-time editor and aided by a group of freelancers," reports CNET.
The target is local news coverage for communities of 15,000 to 100,000 coast to coast, starting with 500 markets.
Each market will have an editor/reporter, who will also have a budget to purchase freelance stories.

The goal is to go after the local stories that daily newspapers skip, and other on-line sources bury. City council meetings, school boards, police and fire reported with a local ear and local interests in mind. The interesting people, places, history events that make a community a community.
