Best TV Newscast -- Night Denver 2004 - Channel 4
Readers' Choice: Channel 9
Since the arrival of new general manager Walt DeHaven, Channel 4 has exhibited more vitality and ambition than at any time in recent memory, and the quality of its 10 p.m. offering has climbed as a result. Anchor Jim Benemann, hijacked from Channel 9, has proven to be a key addition, and the chemistry he exhibits with partner Molly Hughes is tangible without seeming either self-conscious or over the top. As a bonus, the program's large and impressive team can be counted upon to provide the most comprehensive wrap-up of the day's news.
