True about KCYU-LP and KFFX FOX affiliates. They are not too far behind KIMA/KEPR on the Hit List. But KIMA and KEPR's news were both awful tonight with such a big news weekend with the Seattle shooting and the Hydro races. They have Alan Silence, the Yakima Sports guy, covering the Hydros in Tri-Cities for KEPR in Tri-Cities??? KIMA has a gardening type segment at the end of their 11PM news. Meanwhile sister station KEPR is just repeating rather than showing LIVE reports from FISHER's flagship station in SEATTLE about the Seattle shooting at the end of their 11PM news. The weather guy for KEPR looks somewhat like weatherman Stu Seibel at KIMA. What is with the older bald headed weathermen? I believe KEPR also started out their Sports segment tonight with Baseball highlights rather than Hydro Coverage. I could go on and on about how bad BOTH KIMA and KEPR news are.
The reason I am slamming KIMA/KEPR more than KCYU/KFFX is because they have a lot more to deliver yet such as surround sound and HD picture, and have more presence in this market than the FOX affiliates, and make some very close to false assertions about how good their News departments are.
