Communities rely on local news anchors to deliver important and impactful information. We expect to see these journalists and their familiar faces at community events or, even, the grocery store. However, as the local television news business model changes, those “familiar” faces might live hundreds of miles away.

The Independent News Network is based in Little Rock, Arkansas. Newscasts created here are seen in various cities throughout the country. Jeff Lyle is a managing partner of INN’s parent company, Media Gateway.

Even after 420 years, a play like Hamlet can still be “shockingly relevant.” Actress Grace Andrews says, "I’ve been amazed how lines I’ve known all my life – you know, famous Shakespearean lines – have suddenly ... come out in kind of brutal clarity, of … how I can make sense of them now, today. For example, all the stuff that’s been in the news in the past weeks and Ophelia’s line, ‘He took me by the wrist and held me hard.'

    Even right here in Gainesville, I.N.N. is being used and is contracted to WGFL 28 – Cable 4 / WNBW 9 to provide two half-hour news on weeknights at 6:00 and 11:00 p.m.

    I’m no fool because I know it’s not truly local which makes the quality of the newscast look bad IMO.
