hummm thinking. Mike Dannials is the one that comes to mind, he is always trying to come up with witty jokes lol.

Also, KOAA has their own doppler now, I am told a sister station gave them theirs when they bought a new one. The funny thing is they put it in Pueblo county, as we are central in the region, but say it is "south east of the Springs" lol. Thats tru it is south east of the Springs near Pueblo lol

I've been following this thread and thought I'd throw in my perspective. I did radio for 14 of the last 20 years and a radio or TV station does NOT need to have its studios in the City of License. The City of License is merely the locality that the frequency is licensed to. The only thing that has to reside in the City of License is the station's public file.

For example, KXBG-FM is licensed to Cheyenne, Wyoming, but the studios are located between Fort Collins and Loveland. You'll find the station's public file in Cheyenne, but that's about it.

That is true and I have been told by KOAA that they can move their broadcast studios from Pueblo to the Springs if they choose to but they choose not to. They would not really say why, but I think its for the reason I mentioned in a earlier post.

Not Mike Daniels! The weather guy! At least go to KOAA website and then weather and look at the guy! Mike Madson! (http://www.koaa.com/station_info_biographies/x982466921 - broken link)

Bluescreen: I don't care where you worked. The KOAA newscasters eat lunch down here in Pueblo! What's that tell you? Are you saying they drive down to Pueblo and have lunch, then drive back to Colorado Springs to do the newscast? The point I think Josse was trying to make here was that the recording studio or whatever you call it is here in Pueblo. I don't know this for sure, but I've heard it's so. I could care less. Really. Most of the news they broadcast is for the Springs anyway.

Here's the McGowdogpler: look outside right now. It's snowing. Yippee.

You said :

"That's what the dude says when he's referring to thunderstorms. Or at least that's what I think he's talking about. He's the one who's about 52 to 55 years old and he has blondish hair"

Do you really think Mike Madson has blondish hair? LOL that seems gray to me.

BTW no snow in the city

I'm not disagreeing with you. I'm merely saying that the city of license, which was one of Jos's original points, is moot. The owners of KOAA could move the studios to Rye if they so chose. The studios don't have to be in Pueblo.

That was not my point though. If you look at it those are separate statements.

KOAA-TV is the NBC affiliate for southern Colorado. It is licensed to Pueblo, and broadcasts on channel 5. It also operates a translator, K30AA channel 30, in Colorado Springs. The station has staff and offices in both Pueblo and Colorado Springs. Its news studio is located in Pueblo.

It is true that the station is licensed to Pueblo but not the reason the news studio is in Pueblo.

That makes it even better for Pueblo that the broadcast studio is located here given the fact they can move it to the Springs.

Not that I care, but NO IT'S NOT!

Here's Josse's source of info right here. Good old Wiki. Read the 4th and 5th sentences and splain' that to me, Lucy.

Especially the sentence that says, "Its news studio is in Pueblo".
