It was a “slam” kind of day over at Mediaite – three “slam” headlines in a row!

KRTV.com Update

Time for more plugging on behalf of KRTV.com; some new features that may be of interest. And don’t forget: you can get to the KRTV Community Page by simply using MyKRTV.com.

Looking for something to do (besides digging a hole to the Indian Ocean)? Check out the KRTV Community Calendar.

One Class At A Time” lets local teachers submit an application for a $250 grant for their classroom. Pretty cool.

Birthday coming up? Let the Morning crew know (waves to Andrea & Shannon!) about it and they’ll wish you (or your kid, spouse, co-worker, etc) a happy birthday on the special day!

And if you want to know more about some of the candidates for the Montana statehouse, check out the Candidate Profiles.

News Updates

Some of the more interesting stories over at KRTV:

Great Falls teacher nabs $25,000 award: man, this is cool. The only teacher in Montana to be honored by the Milken Foundation. Wonder if there’s any $25K prizes for outstanding blogging…?

Sex-offender program discussed
: a delicate subject, but I added some informative links at the bottom of the article to make it more useful.

Candidate profiles
: I like this – candidates for Montana House & Senate. No rehearsed scripts, no talking points, no distractions – just them talking about why they are running. More to come.

Montana takes center stage on Letterman show: did any of you catch Tim Montana’s performance on Friday night? Now if we could get Tim to write a song about Great Falls like he did for Butte… And don’t forget that our very own Cold Hard Cash will appear on Letterman in a few weeks!

Southern Arterial Poll

Now that I’m getting settled in at my new job, I’m tinkering with some of the features in the online management system…I just added my first official poll at KRTV.com – what do you think of the proposed “southern arterial” road running south of Great Falls? Do me a solid and cast your vote…thanks!

KRTV.com Update

Having tons o’ fun at my new job, learning how the news is “made,” and picking up newsy terms (vosotvo)! And I’ve made some progress in (hopefully) making KRTV.com easier to use. The software that we (stations branded as “Montana’s News Station”) use is called WorldNow Producer, and it’s…well, it’s not as intuitive and flexible as most blogging software (WordPress, etc)…but I’m learning how to work with it.

From experience, and from talking with a few other people, I know that finding stories on KRTV.com once they slip off of the front page can be frustrating. One of my small triumphs so far is adding Category pages, organized according to broad topics such as Education, Crime, Military, and such. I can’t go back and add year’s worth of previous entries, but I’ve categorized most of the stories from this week, and future entries will be added to the categories as they are posted.
