With small-town newspapers struggling across the country, some even closing their doors, a Durango entrepreneur sees an opportunity producing videos to help keep local news viable.
Laurie Sigillito’s Local NEWS Network began in Durango by producing 3- to 5-minute videos to air on Durango’s Spectrum Cable Channel 15 to fill the ample programming space remaining after the channel had aired four hours of news from KUSA-TV, NBC’s affiliate in Denver.
“We quickly learned with great news, we need more reach beyond television and that led to development of an online portal,” said Sigillito, who also owns FastSigns franchise in Durango.
Today, Durango Local NEWS Network features one video a day. Recent topics touched on issues such as dealing with grief in the workplace, touring Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, and examining why exercise alone can’t take off weight.
