CBS 19 in Tyler Texas

If you have ever watched news on the East Texas local television station, you know Gillian Sheridan. Though there are many rumors of her department from ABC’s news station, she now dwells at CBS’s news station KYTX. I don’t really care why she left channel seven, and I think that channel 19 doesn’t care either since their ratings have gone up since she moved over.

She claims on commercials that CBS cares more. I mean they even have a program called CBS19 Cares. They advertise for all different opportunities to give back to the community and different programs to help the people of East Texas live happier and healthier lives.

They advertise for events for people recovering from death in the family to people trying to loose weight. It is a great way to see if there are events or groups that can be encouraging to you no matter what you are going through. It is also a great opportunity for the people of east Texas to get involved and help others out.

CBS claims to be the “eye of East Texas”. I think who ever came up with this slogan saw The Lord of the Rings a few to many times. Though this can be taken in a pretty creepy way, I guess that they mean they offer breaking news fast. In that sense, yes they do.

While the tragic burning of the churches of East Texas was happening earlier this year, I watched CBS every night to keep up with what was going on. I am very grateful to the police department that finally arrested the young boys that burning them down, due to the fact that the church I grew up in is now not much more than a pile of ashes.

I was able to know what exactly was happening to the boys while they were on trial. CBS allowed me to get accurate information that I really was interested in.

CBS news has done some weird things to get viewers, like have a ditzy blonde read the news and made a reality show about it. Which really upset me because the reality show portrayed Tyler to be dirty and the people to be not more than a bunch of hicks.

Finally they are getting more viewers thanks to the fact that CBS cares, or maybe because of a new member to the news anchor team.
