The Rosenblatt Bureau

Rosenblatt StadiumThe plaza area of Rosenblatt Stadium has seen more action in the past few weeks than during the entire Omaha Royals' season.

By Media Watch's (conservative) estimate, more than three dozen live shots have originated from Rosenblatt by Omaha's combined four TV stations during the past two months.

For open discussion: What are some of Omaha's other "hot spot" live shot locations?

Directly in front of the station. By the way; while we're on the topic, whatever happened to the weather observation deck? Did it just die an unannounced death?

Well this one will open the flood gates. I see 100 posts coming from this.

40th and Dodge. Anytime we get two inches of snow, Mike'l Severe is at 40th and Dodge broadcasting

Don't forget the Qwest Center!

Nothing more heart-warming than seeing 8 year olds crying their eyes out because they didn't get to see Hannah Montana...Whoever the hell that is.

Dodge Street:

90th and Dodge when it's icy and people have trouble going west up that hill.

and

Either the expressway or around 144th street when they do stories on how people speed on Dodge.

Of course the most over-used one is in front of Omaha Police headquarters!

So Media Watch is conservative huh?

By the way, I have not seen a Todd n' Tyler thread for a couple of weeks. Why? Is Jim Minge on vacation?

A grocery store with people buying milk or a harware store with people buying snowshovels whenever there's a snow storm coming.

The bridge over the Interstate just wests of 480 when crews are still waiting for the next big ice storm!

Speaking of live shots on TV news... most of the time it's a waste of money doing a live shot. Most of the time it's, "I'm so and so reporting live... behind me is the location where a car accident occurred earlier today. If we were here 8 hours ago you would see wrecked cars and bodies. But now, they're all gone and it's dark and you can't see anything." Most of the time the live shots are useless not providing the viewer with anything. They're only used to feed the egos of the TV people who can say "We now go LIVE to..." If you can't show me anything in the live shot except a reporter standing outside in the dark, don't go live. Just give me the damn story.

KPTM 42 goes to the gas station on the SE corner of 40th and Dodge all the time when gas prices go up

I have to agree with 6:48, most live reporting in this town is as relevant to the viewer as seeing a report based in a Deadwood South Dakota saloon today on the Wild Bill Hickock shooting.
