Don Bond

Longtime Norwich Bulletin reporter Don Bond has died at age 70. Last week he collapsed while covering a meeting in Sterling and never regained consciousness.

Bond, a Plainfield resident, spent the bulk of his 50-year career covering the police and fire beat in Windham County, regularly driving out to crime and accident scenes as recently as this year. He was a familiar presence at northeastern police stations, firehouses, town halls and schools. Even after he retired, he continued to work as a freelancer right up until his death.

A celebration of his life will take place July 7, 2 pm at the Central Village Fire station, 53 Black Hill Road, Plainfield.

Quality versus Quantity

A few weeks ago WFSB issued a press release touting the results of the May ratings period: the station was #1 in every newscast. But as you’ll see from the comments on that Laurel post, there’s a longstanding TV-land debate about whether it’s more important to have the most viewers….or the most viewers in “key demographics”. Enter a recent release from WTIC/Fox61 titled “Fox CT Dominates Late News Again”.  It boasts the strength of  its 10 pm newscast (aren’t there only 2 in the market?) and the growth of its 11 pm show:

The FOX CT News at Eleven increased its household rating by 19 percent, double the growth and the only station that gained audience while two others lost audience.

Bottom line: they’re both right, and they both have results that their salespeople can show advertisers.

What To Do With Those Summer Interns

Once in hand, they barrel across the front of the court to their respective network broadcast positions.

This time of year every news organizations has them – summer interns who are eager to “do something” – but usually not qualified to actually step in. The perfect solution: take advantage of their athletic skills, as did the networks during yesterday’s release of the Supreme Court decisions…

...broadcast interns wait patiently inside to be handed the decision.

Eric’s Back

Eric Clemons, who spent some time in Connecticut as a sports anchor/reporter at WFSB, is now working for WTIC (FOX CT).  The hiring was just in time for the Traveler’s golf  tournament, with Eric going live on Thursday night. Eric has worked a number of places, including ESPN.
