Best TV Newscast (2014)

7News

Back in the days when Denver was a two-newspaper town, 7News was the odd station out — the only one of the traditional big-three network outlets that didn't have a content-sharing agreement with a Denver daily. As such, the station developed a scrappy, chip-on-its-shoulder attitude that's still part of its culture today, even though, in a notable role reversal, it's the broadcaster currently partnering with the Denver Post. The news at 7News tends to be harder, the investigative pieces more substantial, and the on-air personalities, led by Anne Trujillo and Mike Landess, solid and professional enough to reward viewers who schedule time to tune in.
