KTMF Launching Nightly Newscast in Missoula

Max Media’s KTMF is preparing to launch a nightly newscast in Missoula, MT.

The newscast will air at 9 p.m. and will focus on “heavy local news,” Max Media president Linda Gray told The Missoulian. Gray said the news department, helmed by news director and anchor Sarah Gravlee (pictured), is being assembled “from scratch.”

Gravlee will be joined by sports director Dominic Sheldon and chief meteorologist Dave Cochran. She comes to KTMF from KULR in nearby Billings, where she was an anchor, reporter and producer.

“We’ll be covering the same news, but we’ll be doing it better. I want the show to feel very thoughtful,” she said. “I think the term I keep telling my reporters is, ‘Make me care.’ … The viewers will be able to know if they tune in for our newscast, they’ll get stories.”
