Local Reports

Posted Tuesday, February 10, 2009, at 8:32 AM

Is there a Nashville reporter among us in Shelbyville?

Last night when we returned from the SCHS jv games in Tullahoma, I turned the TV on the Fox local news in Nashville. I only saw a portion of the newscast, but they covered the incident at Tyson yesterday morning - without pictures.

At 10 I switched the TV to WSMV-TV, Channel 4. They reported not one but three stories from Shelbyville. Once again, there was the story about Tyson, one about the flash fire at Bemis, and then a short blurb about the need for new lights for the ball fields at H. V. Griffin Park. There were no pictures with these stories.

Is there someone among us who sends these items to the Nashville TV stations or do they have an individual who goes through the small town newspapers and picks up articles?

I have always noticed the Nashville TV stations carry a great deal of coverage about Shelbyville.

Most of the stories are from this web site. Nashville TV stations keep a close eye on other media outlets which update news daily.

The Nashville stations have several reporters in Shelbyville. Their names are Brian, David, John, Mary, Sadie, Jaime, Danny and John, LOL! Now if they'd only remember to send us our paychecks ...

Not only were there three articles about Shelbyville on WSMV last night, they were all within the first 8 minutes of the broadcast. Pretty much prime time for the news. Although they didn't mention the first thing about the refugees being involved in the incident at Tyson yesterday.
