Ingraham News


Radio talk show host Laura Ingraham(Glastonbury High ’81) may soon launch her own news website.

According to Politico, the site will report the news from a conservative point of view and pay special attention to causes Ingraham has been outspoken on – like immigration. One source says Neil Munro, who recently resigned from the Daily Caller, may be Ingraham’s top editor.

The Daily Caller is run by Tucker Carlson, another conservative with Connecticut ties. Carlson studied history at Trinity College.

Long time Fox CT political reporter Shelly Sindland, who now runs her own public relations business, has taken over the role of director of communications for the re-election campaign of Hartford Mayor Pedro Segarra.

It seems to be a tough assignment. The Segarra campaign has faced a number of personnel issues in recent weeks that have taken the campaign off message.

Police Transparency


An important symposium on police transparency in Connecticut is scheduled for next Wednesday in New Haven.

Because There’s Explaining To Do


As promised(they said it would happen in March), The Connecticut News Project, known for its publication of the Internet news site The Connecticut Mirror, will launch two new sites Monday.

Trend CT and CT Viewpoints will allow for deeper reporting on public policy issues facing Connecticut.

Trend CT will use data and info graphics to tell the story. CT Viewpoints will be a town square of op-eds.

Initial support for Trend CT is coming from the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving.

Here and There


Troop movements to report in Connecticut TV news land.

Or as Walt Dibble might have said, “Here are this hour’s names in the news”…..

Kate Rayner – The Live Desk reporter at NBC CT has been promoted to full time. In addition to her reporting duties she’ll be serving as fill-in anchor.

Dan Corcoran – The Florida based journalist from the Scripps TV show “The List” returns to local news with NBC CT. He’ll be assigned to the New Haven desk on the nightside.

Rachel Guerra – The News 8 journalist has announced she is leaving the station for a new role “in the private sector.” She’s been with WTNH for ten years, according to a Facebook post.




Even though some news gathering organizations are using them in the field today, the FAA has still yet to issue regulations on the use of drones in news gathering.

The agency is moving closer by publishing a set of proposed regulations for comment.
