Two ABC O&O’s — WABC New York and KFSN Fresno, Calif. — have recently released true crime documentaries for streaming. WABC’s doc looks into the disappearance of a 14-year-old girl. KFSN’s hour-long show relives the 1992 murder of the Ewell family, found gunned down in their affluent Fresno home.
KFSN in Fresno, California, created an hour-long documentary examining California’s fentanyl epidemic and released it on streaming platforms a week before its broadcast on television. Why? “That is where we see the future of broadcasting,” says Tim Sarquis, KFSN’s executive producer of content development.
Kristie Gonzales was recruited by Tegna to be KVUE’s general manager, even though it was to be her first time in the corner office. “They took a chance on me and they believed in me and supported me during my first year,” she says.
