Changes in Denver AM Market

DenverKUSA

Two morning news shows in Denver are going through transitions at the moment.

ABC affiliate KMGH recently debuted a new set, which Joanne Ostrow over at The Denver Post, didn’t much like:

The big, empty 7News set, a display of video technology on multiple screens, looks big and empty. When I walked around it in person, I hoped it would play better on camera. It doesn’t, and the anchors appear awkward moving from one spot to another. Does standing without an anchor chair add anything? It’s a distraction.

Meanwhile, NBC affiliate KUSA‘s team has been changing in recent months after the departure of longtime fan favorite Kyle Dyer. Ostrow explains what the rest of the team looks like today:

Work-horse Gary Shapiro attempts to hold things together with trooper Cheryl Preheim, while former cheerleader and dancer Corey Rose and well-traveled TV vet Marty Coniglio take turns…When you build a newsroom around big personalities rather than, say, content, it hurts when a popular anchor leaves.

The ratings for September 2014, however, show that KUSA remains at #1, despite the shuffling of anchors. The station’s ratings have decreased compared to previous years, particularly among younger viewers, while KMGH has made significant gains.

For viewers age 25-54, from 6:00 to 7:00 a.m., KUSA scored a 1.4 rating and 15.7 share. KMGH came in second with a 0.8 rating and 9 share. FOX affiliate KDVR came in third with a 0.5 rating, 6 share.

New Role For Kyle Dyer at Denver’s KUSA

KyleDyerKyle Dyer is leaving the morning newscast at KUSA, the NBC affiliate in Denver. In her new role, which begins in July, Dyer will continue toanchor the 11 a.m. and noon newscasts and provide taped pieces for the morning newscast, the Denver Post reports:

“We offered her (a contract) to stay on fulltime,” News Director Patti Dennis said. “She wanted to renew her contract but in a different role, citing family obligations. She’ll no longer have to come in at 3 a.m.”

Her daughters are now 11 and 9, Dyer said, with increasing homework and after-school activities. “It’s hard to be present. It’s something I’ve thought about the last couple of years.” Additionally, she’s been keeping “these weird hours” since December 1993, even before she landed at KUSA.

The adjustment “will be just as weird for viewers” as it will be for her, Dyer said. But she reminds those who have had morning coffee with her for nearly two decades, “I’ll be there on tape.”

Six Weeks After On-Air Dog Attack, Kyle Dyer Returning to KUSA

Six weeks after being bitten on the face by a dog on the morning newscast, anchor Kyle Dyer is returning to Denver’s KUSA on Monday, the Associated Press reports.

Dyer was injured during an interview with the dog’s owner about the dramatic rescue after the Argentine Mastiff fell through the ice. The Argentine Mastiff, Max, bit the anchor on the lip, resulting in four hours of reconstructive surgery and 70 stitches.

“Woke up at 5am to get ready for an even earlier alarm on Monday,” Dyer wrote on Facebook this morning. “Yes, I’m headed back to work! Happy Weekend!”

KUSA’s Kyle Dyer Appears on ‘Today’

After sharing her story in an interview on KUSA last week, Kyle Dyer appeared on NBC’s “Today” this morning.

Dyer spoke in detail with Ann Curry about her physical recovery, saying that she hasn’t considered how the change in her appearance will affect her on-air career.

“I’ve never been freaked out or worried or scared,” Dyer told Curry. “I just knew it was all going to work out” (video above).

Reflecting on Her Dog Bite Injuries, Kyle Dyer: ‘In This Business What You Look Like Is a Lot’

In addition to sitting down with KUSA this week to talk about her recovery from an on-air dog bite, anchor Kyle Dyer did an on-camera interview with the Denver Post.

While she was candid about the incident in her interview with her KUSA co-anchor Gary Shapiro, she appears more at-ease, and is more reflective, in the Denver Post interview, even at one point joking about the incident: “We all think we know how to pet a dog, but we don’t.  I don’t, obviously.”

An anchor with KUSA since 1996, Dyer also spoke about how the facial injuries she suffered could affect her career on TV (video inside). Read more

Kyle Dyer Talks About Dog Bite in KUSA Interview

Two weeks after she was bit by a dog on-air, and just days after she underwent a second operation to repair injuries suffered in the incident, KUSA anchor Kyle Dyer returned to television Thursday night in an interview with Gary Shapiro, her longtime co-anchor.

“I didn’t realize the extent of the injury. I knew it was bad when my lips didn’t touch anymore,” Dyer told Shapiro, recalling the dog bite.  “First thing I think is, ‘I’m bleeding and it had to be live on TV.’ Then I thought, ‘I got to call my mom before one of her bridge friends calls her.’”

KUSA promoted the interview during its newscasts earlier in the day, showing Dyer in profile but withholding a view of her mouth and nose.  In the actual interview, though, Dyer didn’t shy away from revealing her wounded face (video inside). Read more

Dyer is taping an interview with her longtime co-anchor Gary Shapiro today that will air tonight during KUSA’s 9 and 10 p.m. newscasts.

“It’s been two weeks since the accident in our studio,” Shapiro tells viewers in a promo for the interview. “During that time, Kyle wasn’t able to talk.  But she can now–about what happened, about her recovery, and, most importantly, to thank you for all of your prayers and support” (video here).
