Happy to see the Post trying out a noon newscast, something I think a lot of metros should be trying to tap into the bored-at-work-and-not-near-a-TV crowd in their markets. The first ep of DPTV was a little rough around the edges (work on those story transitions) and probably a little too much like a top-of-the-hour radio newscast and not enough like the friendlier, conversational tone of noon local TV. But great to see the effort.
