Needing to know everything that is going on locally, nationally and internationally is an obsession these days! There are local newscasts on in the morning – generally from 5 to 9 in the morning as well as at Noon. You also have the Evening local news on from 5 to 7 p.m. at night in most places during the week and again at 11 p.m. to wrap things up for the day. Along with this you also have the overnight news around the world on many stations. As if that were not enough for people, there are now 24-hour news channels that provide all the news you could want. The question here is this: are these TV Shows or something else altogether?
The problem is that many people do not consider news broadcasts to be a TV Show. The title question also comes into play here as well. Are there far too many news channels or not nearly enough? Well, I guess that answer would largely depend upon you, the reader, wouldn’t it? Are you a person that absolutely must have every single bit of news that you can get your hands on? Or are you someone who is so sick to death of nothing but negativity in the news that you rarely ever watch it any more?
For the most part news channels and TV Shows about news channels and radio stations are popular. The TV Shows that fall into this category are “WKPR in Cincinnati” and “Midnight Caller” to name a couple. There are others as well. Here again, it goes back top the title question in another form: how much of the “news” is too much? Some say that the “news” is not really that at all. It is always good to know what is going on in the world today, it just depends of how much of the same thing you are willing to deal with.
