A search of YouTube reveals some recent news image spots on the air in Australia, Cleveland, Fort Wayne, Sacramento and Jacksonville.
Santa, in one continuous 30-second take, stops by the news anchor desk, a dairy farmer endorses a morning weather lady and a punchy political coverage spot are some of the new promos from Boston, Milwaukee, Tampa and other markets around the country.
This spot isn’t really about snow at all. I like this spot because it didn’t resort to scary news footage of snow. Instead, its simple studio production using fake snow and happy meteorologists dovetailed with its message.
A local photographer and her work bring comfort and joy to the families of children who face serious and sometimes terminal illnesses. When WPTA aired this special, viewers were touched and flooded the station with comments like this one: “This was one of the best things I’ve ever seen … truly. Loved and appreciated every minute!”
