Random Pix (January 11, 2015)

I love it when companies make it so easy to Doge-ify their products:

Dropped in to the new Do Bar for the first time ever, and I ran into these fine folks!

Yup, more snow — more than 13 inches during the past several days. Winter wonderland, indeed — beautiful!

Most-Clicked

It always fascinates me (sometimes amuses, sometimes puzzles) to see what people actually click on when they visit news sites…especially compared to what some people *think* they will or should be clicking.

For instance, take a look at what the most-clicked articles on KRTV.com were over the last week. Are you surprised by any of the items on the list?

Weather Wookiee

KRTV has a fun spot during the Wednesday morning newscasts called “Weather Rookie” – it lets a young student (usually 5th or 6th grade) do a weather segment on TV.

The kids are pretty awesome, and the morning team really enjoys it, too.

But for some reason – I’m not a big “Star Wars” fan – whenever I hear the phrase “Weather Rookie,” it gets interpreted inside my head as “Weather Wookiee.”

So here it is.

Retro KRTV

Stumbled across this little clip – KRTV news intro from 1984.

I’m just awestruck with the font.

Farewell Katie!

Friday was Katie’s last day at KRTV – very sad that she is leaving, she has been such a huge part of the KRTV family for more than five years. But she’s leaving for the best possible reason: love! She and her husband-to-be are headed to Nebraska, where he will be attending grad school, and Katie will be back on the air at a TV station.

From the day I arrived at KRTV, Katie has been a friend and a mentor; I will miss seeing her smiling face at work.

Two videos at KRTV to mark her departure – one is kind of fun and silly, showing some of the more light-hearted moments of her on-air reports; and the other is her “official” farewell during the Friday newscast.

And here is my favorite video of Katie – shot in the newsroom, showing her and Brian suffering from an outbreak of “Bieber fever!”
