KIAH-TVs plan to air anchorless news


 

  • The technology to eliminate TV anchor-people is trivial.  Just hook up a teleprompter to a text-to-speech box.  An iPhone could do the job. So, the feasibility is clear.
  • Lord knows a lot of anchor happy-talk just fills the airwaves and adds no content.
  • I am a fierce supporter of productivity-enhancing technology that drives higher wages and economic growth.
  • But I’m not ready to give up the human touch in delivering the news. Call me an old fogey, but that’s the way I see it.
