Hillary Clinton Buys TV Ad Time In Baltimore

COMMENTARY BY STACIA L. BROWN

Local Baltimore TV Reporters Shine

Stacia L. Brown: “I never think about which TV networks or anchors I trust to break news to me in times of crisis, until I’ve been parked in front of the television for hours, scared to move or to break eye contact with the screen. I don’t realize it’s the anchor’s soothing voice or the on-the-ground reporter’s empathetic interviewing style that’s tethering me to their coverage, until I feel my heart rate steadying. So it didn’t immediately occur to me that I was favoring local news [stations], rather than cable ones, in the aftermath of Freddie Gray’s death and Baltimore’s ongoing response to it.”

COMMENTARY BY DAVID ZURAWIK

Baltimore TV News: Better Than You Think

I turned on the TV at noon Wednesday to see how Baltimore stations handled what I was thinking of as fluff: the arrival of the first ships for the Star-Spangled Sailabration. I came away instead impressed with the performance of Baltimore’s top two broadcast news operations, WBAL (pictured) and WJZ, in handling serious breaking news without ignoring the kind of culturally important softer stories that make a city into a community rather than just a TV market.
