Channel 9 morning anchor Kyle Dyer, a past winner of the coveted Best Hair honor, gave birth to daughter Elizabeth on Friday, January 28. The following Monday, the first footage of the baby was aired by the station, and Dyer's on-air partner, Gary Shapiro, noted that Elizabeth had her mom's hairstyle. He was right: Only a weekend removed from the womb, the infant already had plenty of dark, luxuriant hair, and it looked fabulous. Check this space in twenty years or so, and odds are good that she'll be getting a nod in the adult category.
As the constant companion of Channel 31 traffic-helicopter pilot Rob Marshall, Dylan, a golden retriever, doesn't have a lot of room to roam; viewers of Good Day Colorado usually see him lying on the floor of the chopper, waiting for his next Scooby snack. Yet despite these live-TV limitations, the camera, like the audience, loves Dylan, and his abundant coat is a big reason why. The morning light sets it to shining, and the dog basks in the rich glow like the four-legged celebrity he is. Let the fur fly!

Local gazillionaire Phil Anschutz is notoriously press-shy -- so what kind of business is he branching into? The press! Anschutz bought the venerable San Francisco Examiner and turned it into a free daily, then exported the concept to Washington, D.C., and may well do likewise in metropolitan areas around the country. But he's interested in more than the print media. Anschutz, a devoted Christian, is bringing his values to the nation's multiplexes though such films as Because of Winn-Dixie; he also financed the lion's share of Ray, for which Jamie Foxx won a Best Actor Oscar. In less than a year, Anschutz has become one of the most-talked-about media figures in America -- even if he isn't doing any of the talking.

For Blinky, videographer Brian Malone peeled away the makeup worn by Russell Scott, aka Blinky the Clown, who hosted Blinky's Fun Club on Channel 2 for an astonishing 33 years. Using archival footage and contemporary interviews with family members, sometimes-persnickety colleagues and the man himself, Malone created an unexpectedly complex portrait of Scott, a born ham who had trouble adapting to changing times (at one point in the flick, he complained that "education was being shoved down our throats!") and continues to yearn for the spotlight. The doc's conclusion, which featured an elderly Blinky glad-handing people on the 16th Street Mall, captured the joy and sadness of a lifetime spent clowning around.
