“I get my major news from broadcast networks because I watch their local stations’ newscasts as a rule. I always prefer to see the local reaction to an event-like the Northeast blackout. It makes it more real and personal.”
Joseph LaPolla, director of programming, Discovery Channel
“For my money, broadcast news does a superior job in covering local news. In a city like Los Angeles, things such as weather and traffic can have a major impact on our day-to-day lives, so I turn to the local stations.”
Robin Saban, president, International Student Film Festival Hollywood
