Should Bay Area TV News stations send a reporter and/or anchor to cover the Trump Inauguration on Friday?
The obvious answer would be yes, of course, it's an historical event, albeit an event laced with many controversies --but an event, an important news event all the more direct.
KPIX is sending its political reporter, Melissa Caen; KGO will be sending its lead weekday anchor, Dan Ashley.
I don't know the status of the other station's plans but I assume, minus KRON, they will have representation in Washington.
Again, I ask why? Won't the networks and cable outlets provide ample coverage and shouldn't that suffice? I'm not necessarily saying it's a bad decision to send a local reporter I just question the wisdom and ask if it means anything to the average viewer here.
Have to wait and see.
