Why Local Television Still Matters

Chanel 5 News is everywhere. For those who are curious to know what Chanel 5 News is, their best guess is often right. There is Channel 5 Kansas City. There is Action News 5 Memphis. There is Channel 5 Chicago. There is Nashville Channel 5. There is Fox 5 News Live.

What does this mean? Well, for one thing, it means that there are a lot of opportunities for people who can only, for one obsessive compulsive reason or another, watch channel 5. There may be hope for them yet. However, there is much more to Chanel 5 News than is reflected in the titles.

Many of these channels provide insight into local politics or other events of significance. It is for this reason that Chanel 5 News is probably going to continue to grow in the future. It is uncertain how long this will last. Television, as a standard medium, is changing. It might be moving toward a time when television is completely personalized so that people choose shows and news programs that they want to watch, rather than being devoted to a particular channel.

Only time will tell. But for the moment news channels like Chanel 5 News can provide an experience which cannot be provided elsewhere. It is for this reason that Chanel 5 News has remained relatively popular, even in the face of a new media revolution.

Part of the reason for this is the infrastructure to which news channels are connected. Chanel 5 News can get information from weather satellites, while individual websites typically cannot. Furthermore, schools still depend on local channels to announce school closings and other developments. It is for this reason that these channels still matter, even if there is not a lot of consistency to the messages that they provide. This is why local television still matters.
