WKTV Award Winning

Just watched the news at 11 where they are reporting on the funeral for Deputy Wyman tomorrow.

The reporter says the Utica Police Station is draped in black "fabric" as they are showing a picture of black and purple bunting above a doorway.

So then it's not black "fabric"..It's black and purple bunting..It's called mourning bunting. It took me 22 seconds on Google to find that it's called mourning bunting.

Guess that was too hard for someone at WKTV to do, along with maybe explaining in the story why it is hung on the Police Station...I'm sure they will win an award for coverage of this story anyway!!

There should be an award for goofiness. They would take first prize!

A classic WKTV move - roll out of bed a minute before broadcast, frantically shuffle through papers, and pray to god you can find the story that you are supposed to read before you are on the air.

The effort required to Google the subject matter before reporting a story would require "Outside the Box" thinking from WKTV. Remember, they are practically still using typewriters. One day they couldn't get their broadcast up because the main system went down. They later wrote a story on it and said that the system needed a reboot, but in the meantime they had to manually operate it.

From time to time I will watch a TV program or news cast and think, "Wow, they look unprepared or wow, that was a half-assed job". But at the end of the day, that can only be the second worst because "There's always WKTV".

As long as you have a flamer with bleach blonde hair that doesnt do ANY preparation before hand you got what you got - I can only hope WUTR is serious about getting back in the game. I can't stomach any more KTV.

Ahh WKTV, where to start. Not only has WKTV successfully disgraced central New York with their marginal and unprofessional new reporting, they have also successfully disgraced the field of journalism. I remember watching the afternoon news once, and right before my eyes not only did I see the “crews” left over’s from lunch on the reporting table, but also a randomly placed can of WD-40 next to the colossal mess of papers they supposedly where “reading” the news from, notice how I said reading and not reporting. Honestly, I could write a more interesting and relevant story about a local homeless man taking a shit at the local library in comparison to 98% of their stories. When I Think of WKTV, I think elementary grammar skills, poor inter and intra communication skills and lack of college education. It will be comforting to know when I graduate from an accredited 4-year institution; it will not land me a job in the good old boys joint.

WKTV is a failure of epic proportions. They might be the worst newscast in Northeast. What really gets me is how they brag about how technological they are. Really? Because last I was aware, technological failures followed WKTV like the Bubonic Plague. A technological failure is almost a weekly occurence at that place. Sometimes it's the reporters though too! Last week the sportscaster couldn't stop coughing so they had to go to a commercial break, and he didn't even come back on the air to finish! I can just picture it now, "Shake it off brother, you'll get em' next time!". It was a somber day at WKTV indeed being that he "took one for the team", or "crew" I should say. I just don't understand how they have so many technological problems. I feel like they are about 25 years behind. I heard upgraded to "Windows 98" last week.
