New News On Bay Area TV

Not that anyone asked, but here are a few suggestions for the Bay Area’s newest entry into television news, Town ‘N Country-based WTTA, Channel 38. The 10 p.m. newscast should be on air by mid-July.

1) Please keep us informed about the weather, but don’t hype and tease and scare us because hurricane season is here. Actually, it’s always here — or the drumbeat countdown to it is.

2) There are countless network, cable and internet vehicles for over-reporting national news. Let the others continue to pile on with redundant coverage of Laci Peterson or arsenic poisonings in Maine. Stick to local news for local viewers.

3) If you’re going to do sports, please place a premium on telling us who won and lost and not on-air “personalities” and inane happy talk.
