Symbolic of the changes in broadcasting

Work is underway to demolish the old KING Broadcasting complex. Broadcast history was made there. Great radio and television programming was born there. The station served the public interest under the ownership of the Bullitt family. Now, owned by a national corporation called TEGNA, there is no sense of pride, service or creativity. TEGNA even wants to use the video and snapshots from the phones of the public [volunteers] rather than continue to pay Union video techs. The citizen videographer would receive $50 from TEGNA if the company purchased one of their pictures. CHEAP! That is the corporate way these days.
