Al Tompkins Speaks With KUSA about Balloon Coverage

balloonFrom: Al Tompkins – Poynter.org

“Last week, KUSA-TV in Denver got a call from a man who sounded frantic about his “missing” 6-year-old son who he said had climbed inside a helium-filled balloon. People around the country would soon turn to the news station for local coverage of what quickly became a national story.

I talked with Patti Dennis, the station’s vice president/news director, to find out more about how award-winning KUSA-TV decided to cover the story. Dennis has led the station’s coverage of difficult stories before, including the Columbine shootings.”
