Anthrocon Media Coverage 2013
« on: July 04, 2013, 12:03:34 am »
Dust off your puns and Martinize Kage's lab coat because it's time for Anthrocon Media Coverage Roundup 2013, presented by VivCorp!

Local Television Coverage:

WTAE put way more effort than they should into their coverage, including a live report and a special graphic for the occasion. They even assembled a special webpage to display submitted photos.
WTAE Evening Liveshot
WTAE Weather Forecast with a brief mention of furries at the start.
WTAE 10PM Package
WTAE Web-only segment
WTAE special website
WTAE Fursuit Parade Package

KDKA sent their Old Reporter to make bad puns and jokes.

KDKA returned on Friday for a much more creative report, with help from BigBlueFox

The other TV news operation in town, WPXI, seems to have forgotten that the convention is going on and has not posted anything yet. WPXI finally got an intern to go take a bunch of pictures.

Radio/Web:
WESA 90.5FM (NPR)

Newspaper:
The Post-Gazette farted out a few lines about the convention.

More to come as I find them

Pittsburg must be a really boring city with nothing else to talk about because I've never seen that much media coverage at any cons I've been to (which does not include Anthrocon).
