A tip of the hat to KARE-11 TV (Minneapolis) reporter Rick Kupchella for the start of his ratings period series, “A Cure For Health Care?”.
TV news across the country is a wasteland if you ‘re looking for serious health policy discussions. But in the past couple of years Kupchella has tackled some of the most complex health care reform issues and proved that local TV news can tackle these topics. He’s once again proved that TV doesn’t have to hide behind the excuses of “It’s gotta be short” or “It’s gotta be gee-whiz visually.”
And he doesn’t even cover health news fulltime.
Kudos to Kupchella for his personal commitment and for striving for excellence in serving local viewers.
