A shout-out to KMGH/Channel 7’s Jayson Luber, who like many of us has found himself unexpectedly having to balance his home and work lives.
From Denver’s own Channel 7:
News Director Jeff Harris explained:
“It was a regrettable and embarrassing error. We are mortified this appeared during our 5 p.m. news broadcast. The editor pulled the image of the book cover from the Internet without realizing it had been doctored. We sincerely regret the error and have corrected the story to prevent any recurrence of its broadcast. We are following up internally as well, to avoid a repeat of this inexcusable oversight.”
Hat Tip: Michael Roberts at Westword
Congratulations to KMGH/Channel 7 investigative reporter John Ferrugia for being named a winner of the “Missouri Honor Medal for Distinguished Service in Journalism.” The award is given by the University of Missouri School of Journalism, from which Ferrugia graduated in 1975.
KMGH/Channel 7 investigative reporter Tony Kovaleski is leaving Denver to join KNTV/NBC in San Jose, Calif. Kovaleski’s crowning achievement in Denver, you may recall, was baiting Pinnacol Assurance CEO Ken “Paulie Walnuts” Ross into threatening to break his finger after Kovaleski surprised Ross during a junket to a Pebble Beach golf course.
In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, Gawker has assembled its best “Drunken Moments in Local TV News.” And, as a bonus, here is vintage video of Denver’s own Cynthia Hessin throwing a couple of elbows as a drunk reveler gets a little too close.

Here’s a St. Patrick’s Day tip: if you are going to drunkenly grope a KMGH/Channel 7 reporter, don’t do it during a live shot. Your mom might be watching.
