Public Service Request

Dear News 1st 5,

I find the promo spot that you have been running for the past few months that announces that you now read obituaries during your morning newscasts weird and disturbing.

I know you may be lacking in the ratings, but really, obits? That's what you think is going to get people to tune in? I can understand that you want people to know about new station offerings, but seriously... obituaries month after month. It's just strange now.

I've already banned the local news (don't worry, all local stations, not just yours) from our home to avoid awkward newscasts and surprisingly frequent technical difficulties. Don't bring the awfulness into the commercial break too.



Much appreciated,
A local promo spot viewer
