JOURNAL BROADCAST GROUP's radio and TV stations are launching the "2008 Red, White and Blue Election Initiative" to commit each station to "significant election coverage" in the last 30 days before the general election on NOVEMBER 4th. Each station participating in the program is committing to a minimum of five minutes of election news each weekday in high-listenership time periods, focusing on federal, state and significant local elections. The stations also plan to air get-out-the-vote PSAs.
President DOUG KIEL said, "Our stations are always committed to providing comprehensive, high-quality news coverage of important local stories. This year we renew our initiative to provide viewers and listeners in each of our markets with the best we have to offer in election coverage."
JOURNAL stations participating in the plan include Talk WTMJ-A/MILWAUKEE, Talk KQTH (104.1 THE TRUTH)/TUCSON, Country KTTS and Talk KSGF-A-F/SPRINGFIELD, MO, Talk KFAQ-A/TULSA, Traditional Country KFDI-A and Country KFTI/WICHITA.
