A hundred people — including all of the morning, noon and evening anchors — an outside shoot in a public place, elaborate costumes and everybody dancing in one continuous shot. Take a look.
Tegna CBS affiliate KENS leads San Antonio’s Facebook action mainly due to listening to what people want, and it’s more than just news. Gregory Matthews, KENS’ digital media director, attributes the station’s success on Facebook to listening to what interests people and following social trends. “We are long past the days of telling the audience what they ought to care about,” he says.
Tegna’s CBS affiliate KENS holds the competitive edge in social among local media in San Antonio, Texas, in a close race with Graham Media’s ABC affil KSAT, according to Shareablee data, although iHeartMedia’s KAJA-FM obliterates both TV broadcasters in terms of overall fans/followers.
