Mister Ed ' I I I I I I Last Dragon I Shitoh Tour Channel 4 Z Move over WAVE, WHAS and WLKY, a new combatant is gearing 2up for battle in the local news wars. WDRB-41 is making plans to es-tablish a full-scale news department .and hire an anchor team to broadcast a daily, 10 p.m. local news 'rshow within a year. "It's really not a question of if, but when," said John Dorkin, -WDRB's new general manager. A t well-produced local newscast at '.that hour could siphon viewers I;from the local network affiliates' 11 '.' p.m. news programs, f "An early local newscast is going "."to catch many of those people who : have to go to work early," said Dor-kin. "We're also hoping to get the viewer who Just doesn't want to stay up until 11 p.m. to get the ;sports scores or find out what kind of weather they'll face in the morning." A 10 o'clock newscast could also boost WDRB's ratings. The station's 10 p.m. entertainment ratings haven't been that hot. And more " people are watching television at 10 "o'clock than at 11, which also gives WDRB a shot at bigger ratings. "I don't think we'd be taking a Ratings bath by jumping into this." Dorkin said. He feels that WDRB "could do at least as well as WLKY-32, which attracted only 12 percent rlof the J I pjn. audience in last November's Arbitron survey. - "The broadcast business is changing rapidly, and we have to change Twith it," Dorkin said. Basically the newscast move is a financial deci--sion. "More than $12 million of the '.$60 million In commercials bought in this market go on television news programs," Dorkin said. "That's a 25 Ashland. 29 Paducah. 29 Somerset, 31 Owensboro Henderson, 35 Madisonville. Bowling Green, 54 Covington, 68 Louisville. 1 prepares TOM DORSEY TV-RADIO CRITIC fifth of the revenues that WDRB was left out of because we don't have a news program." Dorkin has visited other cities to see how non-network stations do local news. "There are lots of them in big cities like Atlanta and Cleveland, but towns as small as Fresno, Calif., are doing it too." He said he's not interested in a rip-and-read newscast. "That would be a mistake. We have to do it right, or .not do it at all." Doing it right means hiring a news staff of about 15, including anchors, and weather and sports reporters. It would also require purchasing expensive equipment and building a studio set "I would expect to see our anchorpeople on the street and out reporting, especially since they won't have to do a 6 p.m. news," Dorkin said. A newscast also could do more than improve ratings and profits for Channel 41. It could be a big step in boosting the station's image in the community beyond the kids' cartoons and "Gilligan's Island" rerun label it has had. WDRB's affiliation with the Fox Broadcast Network already has boosted its standing. Fox plans to add some weeknights to its weekend schedule later this year. Channel 41 has scheduled top-rated repeats of such shows as "Cheers" BASIC CABLE CD - to field an and "Family Ties" in the past year. These are competing with syndicated shows like "Entertainment Tonight," even if they aren't beating them. The newscast and Dorkin's aggressive stance indicate that WDRB intends to be a real contender on the local TV scene. Dorkin is determined to make things "more interesting" for his competitors and better for WDRB's viewers. Bernscn encore WHAS-TV's Barry Bernson is on the road again for "People Magazine on TV" Friday. He plays a Perry Mason-type newsman in the case of "Who's Killing the Mustangs" at 8 p.m. on CBS-ll. Bernson has become a regular contributor to the "People Magazine" show. It's a family affair, with his wife, H. M. Goldman, serving as producer. Bernson traveled to the wilds of Nevada in pursuit of his latest story. "It's a search for the guys who killed more than 500 wild horses protected by federal law that roam Battle Mountain area in the northern part of the state," he said. Amanda's fund Last week Channel 11 broadcast a story about Amanda Hardin, a 3-year-old Louisville girl who needs $25,000 for an operation that doctors in Virginia say will guarantee that she will walk. Her stepfather recently lost one arm and both parents are unemployed. They have sold their home to pay bills.
