Twin Cities station will try ‘breaking the news’
“No fires or car crashes just stories that you are talking about through social media, over the water cooler, with your friends,” the station says on its own story announcing the new newscast.
So, despite some effort to spin it otherwise, “Breaking the News” will basically just be another attempt at a social media-driven newscast (as well as a thinly-veiled attempt to appeal to millennials).
The station is also planning to debut a new set.
You’ll recall that a play on the phrase “breaking news” as a newscast name is hardly a new concept — CNN tried it with the short lived “D.L. Hughley Breaks the News.”
