In this week's Reader, Sean Weide reports on KMTV's restoration of sports to its 10 p.m. newscast. As we had feared, the station's new owner, Journal Broadcasting, appears to be happy with the work of Travis Justice, who also hosts a call-in show on the company's AM radio station, BigSports 590, and who clings to Z-92's Todd 'n' Tyler like grim death.
Weide quotes new KM3 GM Steve Wexler as saying "We're . . . committed to covering sports in an informative, entertaining way and Travis Justice has the experience and ability to go beyond the obvious headlines in both his nightly sportscasts on KMTV and weekday mornings on [the radio]."
What a shame.
