Thank you, KODE!
KODE was the only Joplin station that led with something other than Michael Jackson's death. KODE led with the standoff that took place earlier tonight in Joplin.
KSNF and KOAM are following programs that were already telling the viewers about Michael Jackson's death with more packages about it.
KODE is now doing its second story, and again it is a local one, about the drowning of a child in Wyandotte. KSNF has just begun the story on the standoff. KOAM has just finished the national packaging and is now localizing the story.
KODE followed the drowning story with the first weather forecast and is just now going into the Michael Jackson story.
KOAM followed the Jackson packages with the standoff story, and then did the drowning story.
