The Red Cross is asking "civilians" not to go to Moore, OK, to assist residents there devastated by a tornado that has killed at least 51 people (now downgraded to 24), saying they will simply get in the way of emergency personnel and hamper rescue efforts.

For years KCTV was the TV station in Kansas City with the "Live, Late-Breaking, Investigative" slogan.
To many viewers that meant a steady diet of over-the-top "Breaking News" stories, salacious "Major Investigative" stories and "scare the hell out of them" weather coverage.
The CBS affiliate had a weather policy of "first on, last off," and veteran meteorologist Katie Horner (now in St. Lou...
Lindsay Shively, who joined 41 Action News in May 2009 as a multimedia journalist from WIBW in Topeka, has been named an anchor for the NBC affiliate's "41 Action News Weekend Today," according to an announcement by News Director Carrie Hofmann.

Remember the young anchor who began his TV career in Bismarck, N.D. and promptly dropped an f-bomb and added a few other swear words?
The anchor, AJ Clemente, was fired, but then made a name for himself going on various talk shows. Matt Lauer was very sympathetic to AJ's plight and suggested another station give him a chance.

The Justice Department used a secret subpoena to obtain two months of phone records for Associated Press reporters and editors without notifying the news organization, a senior department official told NBC News, saying the step was necessary to avoid "a substantial threat to the integrity" of an ongoing leak investigation (
"A Priest, Rabbi and Protestant Minister..."
That almost sounds like the start of a joke.
But it's no joke when a local Sunday morning radio show can remain on the air for 20 years, but that is what the "Religion of the Line" program achieved this morning.
Begun on Mother's Day in 1993, "Religion on the Line" made its debut on KCMO-710 AM (and now 103.7 FM) at noon and featured a Rabbi, ...

The perception is that many people have stopped listening to radio--especially the Millennial generation.
