KOLR-TV mid-day news interviews
The 2020 interview schedule for KOLR-TV will be posted when available. Let David Burton know as soon as possible if you have a conflict. Your mileage to the station is charged to your home county. Please make plans to arrive at the television station by 10:45 a.m. on the date of your appearance to go over your topic with the mid-day weather person. Your interview will be between 2 and 3 minutes in length and take place at about 11:20 a.m. The KOLR-TV10 station is located at 2650 E. Division, Springfield, Mo.
One day in advance of being on TV, the extension person doing midday show MUST send to Elisa Raffa their topic and notes. All you need to include is 1) an outline of topics/ questions, or attach a flyer for an event -- just some quick info about what we'll be talking about; 2) Name of guest and title; 3) Contact information (phone/ website) for event/ specific extension office. The information can be in the form of a Q&A or a media release or bullet points regarding the topic to be discussed. The FCC is making all news stations in the country to have as much word for word as possible in closed captioning or face a fine. Send content by email to: [email protected] and copy David Burton at [email protected] for a possible media release.
