The sale of CFI, a major Joplin business, was the lead story on KSN's noon news, with no mention being made of it on KOAM as far as I could tell.
KOAM led with a newsworthy story about the continued problems caused by recent flooding, but apparently either no one was watching the wires or the story is being developed for 5 p.m.
KODE, of course, is showing All My Children.
The print media was all over the story through their internet outlets as the Joplin Globe and Jeff Wells of Tri-State Business (posting on the Springfield Business Journal website) both had the news within minutes of the announcement.
(Update: Anchor Dowe Quick, in a brief preview of the 5 p.m. newscast, says it will include information about the CFI sale.)
