KY3 coverage of Talent-McCaskill debate noted in Wall Street Journal

The world of television political coverage is changing, thanks to the Internet, and KY3 in Springfield is making good use of the new medium.
The Wall Street Journal is citing the station's upcoming Oct. 16 debate between U. S. Senate candidates Jim Talent and Claire McCaskill. (No link is provided to the article because the Journal requires readers to pay for access.) The small snippet of the article on the Web quotes KY3 executive producer Brad Belote as concerned that the debate won't draw a big crowd against a potential baseball playoff game, so the station will offer streaming coverage on the internet for those who are unable to watch it when it initially airs.
