KMPH Now Broadcasts News In HD

By Clint Olivier

FRESNO - From Wednesday night on, the Central Valley will get its favorite late-night news in high definition.

"The picture is just more robust, and bright and clearer," Jack Peck said.

General Manager Jack Peck and company have sunk about two million dollars into upgrading equipment and the on-air look at KMPH to bring viewers the best picture possible.

But you don't have to have a brand new TV set to see the difference.

You can still be part of the excitement.

"Even for the folks without HD television, you're going to have some surprises and some good things in store," he said.

"It's a big change, it really puts us in the 21st century," Larry Howland said.

Howland has been calling the shots as newscast director for more than 30 years.

Besides the better picture, Howland is excited about other improvements viewers will notice right away.

"They'll see a whole new graphics look, a music package, all the music has been changed," he said.

"Weather affects everyone, all over the planet, all the time," Kevan Ramer said.

Say 'hi' to the Fox Forecast, featuring high definition satellite, the most state-of-the-art weather equipment out there.

Valley-bound storms, we're watching you closer than ever.

"We normally wouldn't see those things on our old system now we'll be able to see them when they're 5 to 6 days out," Ramer said.

So there's lots of new at KMPH.

But one thing remains the same.

All the up-to-the-minute local, national and news from around the world, presented in a fair, balanced and accurate way.

Staying true to the values and the viewers that got us here.

"I'm proud to be a part of this newscast which has quite a tradition here in the valley and is the most watched newscast in the central valley, and I'm proud to be a part of anything that moves us forward," Monty Torres said.
