KTNV in Las Vegas collaborated with Stephen Arnold Music to create a custom music image campaign with a message of hope and inclusiveness for post-pandemic audiences.
KTNV, the Scripps-owned ABC affiliate, produced an hour-long special for its 65th anniversary of broadcasting that’s uniquely Las Vegas. It follows the Sin City’s history of colorful characters, Hollywood celebrities and mobsters through the boom times and the busts, from Elvis and the Rat Pack in the 50s to today. The one constant? The principles of journalism “haven’t changed throughout the decades,” says Emily Atuna, KTNV’s executive producer.
“Never has our mission to create a fully informed world through journalism education, improving childhood literacy and giving back to Scripps communities been more important than it was in 2020,” says Liz Carter, the foundation’s president and chief executive officer.
The nominations include work for television stations in Kansas City, Missouri; Albuquerque, New Mexico; Las Vegas, Nevada; Denver, Colorado; Columbus, Ohio; and Dallas, Texas.
New Jobs posted to TVNewsCheck’s Media Job Center include openings for news producers at various Scripps stations acros the country, including an assistant news director for KUSI in San Diego and an IT network administrator for WINK in Fort Myers, Fla.
KTNV is encouraging the Las Vegas community to come together and nominate 13 individuals and or organizations who need a miracle. “We encourage our community to share stories of people or organizations in our community that have a critical need in the areas of homelessness, health care, hunger, education, military, first responder or youth sports,” said Chris Way, KNTV’s general manager.
