Local TV reporters, anchors appear on national news
Local television personalities have been making the rounds of the cable news shows since this week's arrest of five Riverton High School teenagers for allegedly planning a Columbine-style shooting rampage.
While I understand others have been interviewed from all of the stations, the only one I happened to catch was KSNF anchor Tiffany Alaniz, who was being interviewed by MSNBC Saturday morning.
Ms. Alaniz was professional throughout her appearance, which was more than I can say for the MSNBC interviewer, who did not take the time to even learn how to pronounce her last name.
I have been told that KODE reporter Dan Tordjman and anchor Tara Brown were interviewed by CNN at different times.
It is an unfortunate thing when our area becomes the focus of the national media, but it is nice to know when it does that they are able to step up to the plate and hit it out of the park.
