I remember seeing an ad a few months ago for KTGF – they were looking for someone to do the news on our local Fox station. Yes, I did want to apply for the position, but unfortunately I won’t be available for new employment until September. But now it looks like they found someone:
Karen Wolf is the station’s news anchor. Her job includes community affairs director duties, too. Originally from St. Louis, Wolf moved to Great Falls in December with her husband, who is in the U.S. Air Force. “I saw this job posted online and it looked more interesting than accounting,” Wolf said. “Now that I have this job, it’s amazing. This is what I should have been doing all along.” Wolf said she’s looking forward to finding new topics to do stories on and spotlighting Great Falls’ features.
But KTGF isn’t competing directly against our two primary newscasts (KFBB and KRTV); instead, they are offering 90-second headline updates at the top of each hour between noon and 10:00 pm on weekdays. Well, hey, it’s a start. If they decide to expand their news offerings, I have some ideas for a local news show…been percolating in my brain for a few years…just one step in my quest for media domination in Great Falls…(insert evil chuckle)…
But back on topic: I haven’t caught any of the KTGF news breaks yet, but hope to tomorrow. Any feedback from you folks…?
