KGO Radio abandons taped financial shows; goes wall-to-wall coverage with Pat Thurston and Bret Burkhart.
KCBS: Went with regular programming relying with CBS Radio Special Reports and bottom/top of hour updates.
KQED: NPR feed ...
Stunning...maybe the commercial networks have become numb to the almost daily shootings involving and affecting police and civilians ...In the case of the Baton Rouge ambush ...not one over-the-air commercial network broke out of their regularly scheduled programming...they, along with correspondents were broadcasting from Cleveland at the Republican Convention.
FOX stayed with its "Fox News Sunday" (obviously taped before the Baton Rouge shootings); ABC ran its usual talk show and NBC stuck with the British Open ...sound programming, guys. CBS' 'Face the Nation' was stuck in Cleveland, so too, 'MTP' on NBC.
KTVU/Fox, again, this is stunning: ran a MLS Soccer match; maybe they're waving the white flag; KGO-TV, KNTV, KRON all mentioned the ambush but soon returned to running infomercials.
I'll give the local O and O's a break; they obviously couldn't go with the network because the networks are apparently asleep or gearing up for the GOP Convention.
Sundays are not a good day for Big News Events to occur.
