KUSA’s Kyle Clark Gets Feisty as Debate Moderator

Last night, political reporter Brandon Rittiman and anchor Kyle Clark of Denver NBC affiliate KUSA moderated a heated debate between Sen. Mark Udall (D) and Rep. Cory Gardner (R). But the candidates weren’t the only two people confronting one another.

Clark got into his own argument with Gardner about the federal Life at Conception Act, which Clark says Gardner denies being a personhood bill to end abortion. Check out a clip of the testy exchange above.

Some of Clark’s fans were pleased with his performance as moderator.

Others, not so much.

You can watch the full debate here.

KMGH Nominates Eric Kahnert for ‘Sexiest News Anchor Alive’

Eric-Kanheart

Denver’s KMGH has a few nominees for People‘s ‘Sexiest News Anchor Alive‘ contest, and they want their fans to spread the word.

The E.W. Scripps owned ABC affiliate is nominating evening anchor Eric Kahnert along with morning anchor Mitch Jelniker and ”TheNow” anchor Lionel Bienvenu, all three of whom have their own faux People covers.

The anchors will be judged on the following criteria: perceived sexiness (50%), location within the United States (25%) and social media following (25%). KMGH is encouraging fans to help spread the word about their three sexy contenders:

Here at 7NEWS, we’re hoping you’ll help get the attention of People Magazine’s editors by tweeting them about 7NEWS morning anchor @MitchJelniker, TheNow anchor @LionelBienvenu and @7NEWS evening anchor @EricKahnert.

Scripps Drops ‘Jeopardy’ and ‘Wheel of Fortune’ at KMGH

KMGH-1A few years ago we reported on Scripps Television’s decision to swap ”Jeopardy” and “Wheel of Fortune”, two hugely popular syndicated game shows, for programming they produced. Back in 2012, the company brought in two of their own shows so they could have more control over their content (and not have to pay those pesky syndication fees).

Well, it looks like it’s happening again.

The Denver Post reports that ABC affiliate KMGH will lose “Jeopardy” and “Wheel of Fortune” on September 8, to be replaced by a new 6:00 p.m. newscast and a half-hour newsmagazine, a Scripps-produced show called “The List.” According to a KMGH press release, the new show’s “upbeat, fast-paced style brings viewers non-stop weather coverage and the very latest on developing stories from the studio and in the streets.”

We reached out to KMGH vice president and general manager Byron Grandy to see if other Scripps stations will be adopting this model in the coming months. He did not immediately respond to our email.

Denver’s KUSA Celebrates 60 Years

This Friday, KUSA in Denver will celebrate its 60th anniversary.

The station, which began as both a CBS and an ABC affiliate with the call letters KBTV, kicked off the celebration Sunday night taking viewers back to 1950′s Denver and giving them a small taste of what watching TV was like back then.  You can watch the video of the story after the jump.

According to the story, The Rocky Mountain News encouraged viewers at the time to hold TV viewing parties but to protect themselves with greenery, “they also warned you that there were little rays coming out of the television screen that could zap you.  And the best thing to do about that was to put some plants on the TV or near  it to soak up these potentially deadly TV rays.”

The station has a web page devoted to the event.  Click here to view.  The Denver Post also has an article about the station’s celebration and history.  Click here to see.  Watch the videos inside.
