Tribune TV to deliver news without any anchors

empty New York, July 27 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Tribune Co. is a formerly successful media company that has gone bankrupt as a result of irresponsible and unrealistic management by its executives led by billionaire Randy McMichaels.

McMichaels still boasts of a few innovative ideas like allowing the producers of Transformers to hire the company’s office for shooting the movie for $200,000. His other strange ideas include setting up a TV newsroom in Houston, which will operate without anchors and would be just made up of pictures and cute text. Only time will tell whether these “innovative” ideas will work or not.

This new type of news delivery called “Newsflix” recently got featured in the Houston Chronicle and will just concentrate on videos and natural sounds to deliver news to viewers without any human involvement on set.

Lee Abrams first brainstormed this idea and Randy McMichaels seemed comfortable with the idea. Randy said that, “We are about to launch a TV newscast in Houston that has no anchors, that has great pictures and great writing, but doesn’t involve a set or a desk or anyone standing in the way of the picture. Now is it going to work? We’re going to find out.”

If this idea by Tribune works then other TV stations may be doing similar stuff, as this will easily cut down operation costs by news companies.
