Letter: KVLY age remark reveals a mind-set

I found Ike Walker’s (of KVLY TV) response to WDAY’s rise in the ratings very insulting. “WDAY traditionally attracts much, much older viewers,” Walker said. “Yeah, WDAY, they’re the king of the old people. So when you look at overall household numbers, their numbers tend to be higher.”

I do not consider myself an older viewer at 45. I just appreciate the professionalism of the WDAY news staff. They do not stumble over their words while reporting the news, they are professionally dressed and yet still seem to enjoy reporting the news.

Instead of insulting the viewers, Walker needs to take a hard look at why the ratings for his competition are higher. It is not hard to see why, from this viewer’s opinion. Congratulations to the WDAY staff, they deserve it – regardless of my age bracket.
