I built my home studio with the thought of servicing multiple stations. So far I’ve been limited to KMIR, but within the next few weeks I’ll also be the meteorologist for News Channel Nebraska’s first station in Norfolk. There are three more Nebraska stations on the way.
These are really small markets. Actually, that’s the real payoff! I’ll be providing a service to people who’ve never before been anyone’s target audience.
Today Norfolk’s local TV comes from Sioux City, IA. Nebraskans are not their main concern. We’ll change that.
The whole concept comes from Mike Flood, who owns a few local radio stations and has a good sense of what’s needed. This is his baby. It’s been a while since I worked for someone who could make decisions on-their-own.
I’ve spent the past few days ‘driving’ around Madison County and environs courtesy of Google Maps. I’ve also been studying up on some severe weather skills I haven’t thought about much since I left school.
It’s amazing what you can do from your garage if you set your mind to it. More as we draw closer.
