KOLR-TV Mid-Day News Interviews 2017

Here is the  interview schedule for KOLR-TV.  Let David Burton or the Greene County office manager know as soon as possible if you have a conflict. Your mileage to the station is charged to your home county. Please make plans to arrive at the television station by 10:45 a.m. on the date of your appearance to go over your topic with the mid-day weather person. The folks at KOLR love for us to use props when possible. Your interview will be between 2 and 3 minutes in length and take place at about 11:20 a.m.  The KOLR-TV10 station is located at 2650 E. Division, Springfield, Mo. The station's website is at http://www.ozarksfirst.com.

One day in advance of being on TV, extension person doing midday show MUST send to Elisa Raffa their topic and notes. The information can be in the form of a Q&A or a media release or bullet points regarding the topic to be discussed. The FCC is making all news stations in the country to have as much word for word as possible in closed captioning or face a fine. Send content by email to: ERaffa@kolr10.com and copy David Burton at burtond@missouri.edu for a possible media release.

This year the calendar is available as an Excel file that can be downloaded.
