We have to be in charge” (Grossman, 2002). Implications for Local Producers There are very few secrets in broadcasting, and what works for one station or network usually gets immediately copied. The success of programs like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire? and Survivor ignited a boom in primetime game shows and reality programming in the late 1990s. The same thing happens in broadcast news, where successful methods and formats are copied with regularity. When the “Action News” format (emphasizing shorter stories, more video, and lots of action) emerged in the 1970s, it became a staple at newsrooms all across the country.

In the 1960s, consultants and profes­ sional media firms (see chapter 9) introduced this research to show the disparity between what the networks were showing and what people really wanted to see. The research indicated that most people did not watch the networks because they liked the news but because it was the easiest way to get the news. Research also showed the popularity of anchors, who in many cases were even more important than the news content. Networks were very reluctant to embrace these findings, and many news executives criticized consultants for sensationalizing local news.

All of this has led the networks to shift their focus away from the tradi­ tional older, middle class audiences in favor of younger audiences critical for ratings success. This trend has been well established in other areas of broadcasting and media. The supermarket tabloids are testimony to the fact that Americans love to talk about celebrities and entertainers.
