Local journos get nat’l play via ‘Crier’

Court TV show to b'cast excerpts from best submissions

Court TV and the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) have joined together to give local investigative and legal news stories a national platform.

Deal will allow stations to submit their best examples of investigative and legal coverage for inclusion in Court TV’s daily news skein “Catherine Crier Live.” Segments that make the cut will then be eligible for a national Emmy.

“Local stories are the essence of national news, and we have always believed that some of the best work by broadcast journalists is done at local stations,” NATAS prexy Peter Price said. “We have now created the opportunity to bring national attention to their work.”

Early submissions have already yielded a wide range of topics from the first interview with former New York Times reporter Jayson Blair to the trial of Jon LeBeau, accused of beating a fellow inmate to death in Montana.

Once a story is selected, a station rep (anchor, producer or reporter) will appear on air with Crier and the show will broadcast excerpts.

Hour-long skein airs weekdays at 5 p.m. on Court TV.
