Fox31 weekend anchor Leland Vittert is the latest Denver television news personality to make the move to a national spot. Vittert has been named Fox News’ Middle East correspondent and will be based in Jerusalem.
As the Denver Post’s Bill Husted points out, Vittert follows Bill O’Reilly, Phil Keating, Jeremy Hubbard, Tom Costello, Thanh Truong, Kevin Corke and Harry Smith as local personalities who have made the move to the national stage.
Linhart’s Paul Raab examines three leadership lessons from the situation involving Gen. Stanley McChrystal.
Congratulations to Westword’s Michael Roberts for being named Top Blogger in 5280‘s annual Top of the Town issue. His “Latest Word” blog is the first one I read every morning, and the first one I recommend to anyone looking to fill their RSS reader.
A shout-out to Denver’s own Glendale Cherry Creek Chronicle reporter Glen Richardson, who defended his use of fabricated direct quotes in an article on crime in the Lowry area by arguing:
“I’m not sure that it was misleading. It was, in a sense, probably embellished.”
