I’ve been woefully neglectful in covering the results of this year’s premiere talent competition from our most progressively hip & contemporary t.v. network(s).
2 Kasa Fox/KRQE 13 already provide the sunshine & light of your weekday mornings vis a vie the dueling mega watt smiles of New Mexico Style hosts Nikki Stanzione & Kristen Van Dyke, and round the clock news men and women whom we all adore…
We haven’t been terribly successful in directly nominating or backing winning campaigns or contestants, though we were able to document a 1:2 cross country vie for a spot in the Avengers.
Our pick for last year’s FOF, reigning Golden Tumbleweed Favorite Actor Award Winner Steven Ray Byrd, and countless other New Mexicans whose cause or talents we’ve championed (including them there animals we’re trying to raise funds for – see the donation widget to your right) don’t quite get the recognition we lobby for.
So I won’t ask you to vote for this adorbs young man Anthony Almanza (below), or the sun shiny goodness of Dee Brown – the choice is yours all yours!
Watch ‘em all, pick your fave and support ‘em! Your vote is your complete video view so go to kasa.com to see them all. The chosen one will be your Face of Fox for the next year or so and will speak to and for our community for the duration and perhaps beyond…
If you’re some kind of TV personality superhero who can sweep in and take this you have until Friday April 29, 2011 at midnight to submit for consideration here.
The top ten viewed videos move on to the second round of selection beginning Monday May 2, 2011 – Good luck to all you talented contestants!
Much success and best wishes to all who enter! And adios to our out going face Michael Junchaya. Keep up with him on the social net. until we see him again in another gig!
The plucky young actress first brought to our attention in the twenty first century teen dramedy SUPER BAD, Emma Stone and her self proclaimed more jaded, more seasoned comedic counterpart Kathleen Madigan.
Upper lip drawn taught, stiff as they speak-up & speak-out in their respective fields, both ladies are clever, witty, raven haired & sharp nay silver tongued – and that is why I’m a fan of ‘em both!
Check this rare video of video of Madigan on the defunct (then refunct), Tonight Show with Jay Leno as brought to you by me via the now defunct KASA Fox 2 Interactive Report, in which she classically explains what would’ve given our own El Majico a successful run at the presidency back in ’08:
Kathleen’s comedy is streaming on Netflix in Gone Madigan and her wet eared look alike Emma Stone brings it in both Zombieland (3:5 hubs points) and Easy A (which totally held up right up until the las 10-15 min.) and is currently filming Spiderman with not Logan Lerman.
Proclaiming, “Family movie night is back!”, The Social Moms event description for the films premiere airing states:
Join us as we watch “Truth Be Told,” a new made-for-TV family movie, starring Candace Cameron Bure, David James Elliott and Ronny Cox premiering Saturday, April 16, 2011 at 8/7c on FOX. “Truth Be Told” is brought to you by Walmart and P&G as part of their effort to bring more high-quality entertainment to families.
The “Tweet-a-thon” and online viewing party will be Saturday April 16, 2011 from 8pm to 10pm as aired on nationwide FOX affiliates. Social Moms event attendees have a chance to win $50 Walmart gift cards (Procter & Gamble and Walmart are the film’s sponsors).
To participate “Tweet an invite to your followers to watch the movie using the #FamilyMovie hashtag or tweet during the movie with #FamilyMovie in your tweets and you’ll be entered to win.”
On a less rosey note, the verdict is in as TNT has passed on the TV series pilot based on the Marshall Karp novel, The Rabbit Factory. The pilot had filmed here last winter and featured Steven Weber, DL Hughley and plenty o’ New Mexicans.
But back to an upswing, another family friendly NM Production, the Hallmark Hall of Fame original movie, Beyond the Blackboard WILL air on CBS, Sunday April 24.
See the trailer here. And YES! That’s ELLIOT from thirtysomething!!!
UPDATE 3/8/11: Daddy tried to warn you, but it seems even with a small uprising of contact from subscribers, Dish yanked your KRQE/KASA. It’s time to antenna-up.
The full list of LIN Media owned stations affected by the Dish Network dispute here.
It seems you can’t throw a stone without hitting someone trying to pull one over one ya’. We’re not affected by this mess ’cause we’re far too impoverished to partake of Dish Network, but it seems a battle is brewing between our local CBS/FOX affiliate and the corporation.
Here’s the deets from KRQE/KASA and GM Bill Anderson:
On March 4, 2011, DISH’s contract to carry KRQE-TV & KASA-TV will expire. Please know that we are working hard to reach a new agreement with DISH so you will not lose your favorite programming. If we do not reach an agreement, by law, DISH cannot carry our television stations KRQE & KASA on its satellite system.
Our stations KRQE & KASA are important assets to the local community. Without a fair agreement, we will not be able to provide the premiere news, sports, entertainment, weather, traffic updates, political coverage and other local and national programming that is most important to you.
In the event that we are no longer carried by DISH, viewers may continue to watch their favorite local programming through alternative means, including over-the-air or by switching to a competing pay-TV provider.
Our primary commitment is to our viewers, and we regret if this situation inconveniences you. Call DISH and tell them you don’t want to lose KRQE-TV & KASA-TV and all of your favorite programming. You can reach DISH by calling 1-800-333-DISH or 505-888-6695.
On March 4th, you could lose your favorite programming…

On a very closely related note (to the previous post) there is a MAJOR opportunity with our Fox television affiliate for someone with mega watt talent to host their very own show:
“ALBUQUERQUE – Southwest television station is seeking a host for a brand new morning Style and Talk show on KASA-TV (Fox), part of LIN Media’s top-rated duopoly in Albuquerque, NM. Largely unscripted, we need an intelligent, energetic, dynamic, and interesting Host that will primarily appeal to the female demographic. You must be credible, competent and conversational.
This is not a news show but you must have strong interviewing skills and be able to discuss a wide range of topics with everyday people, professionals and personalities.
The Host will play a key role in the style and presentation of the program, hosting live and recorded interviews, and conducting discussions on a wide range of topics. You should be engaging, fun, web savvy and relatable [sic] to viewers from all walks of life.
This is truly a rare opportunity for you to let your personality shine. If this sounds like you, send tape & resume (web link preferred), and “why you” in three sentences, or less to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail:
KASA-TV (Program Anchor/Host)
13 Broadcast Plaza SW

No phone calls, please!
The application deadline is open until the position has been filled.
KASA-TV, owned & operated by LIN Media is an equal opportunity employer.” – KASA
And by “Cool” I mean Mike Powers and by “the Gang” I mean all the beautiful ladies and handsome gents of KRQE y KASA Fox 2 News.
With a picture so crystal clear it’s practically 3D you can gaze into the dreamy eyes of Tim Maestas and depth so real you can almost smell the freshness of grooming products on the perfectly coiffed aforementioned Powers.
For a groovier groove check out those weathercasters, esp. at night with their celestial glow as they pop off your set from in front of their green screen.
My one and only complaint is of the swiveling, HD symbols in the sidebars of video frames. Those things are giving me visual Tourette’s, like other simple life forms I’m totally distracted by the tiny shiny objects.
I’m sure I’ll complain again when all the seksi ladies of KRQE begin to give me a complex lookin’ all fly in Hi Def. Check it all out from the rockin’ new set to the FOF Michael Jambalaya (I say that with great respect for diverse and spicy things) every day on KRQE News 13 and Kasa Fox 2 News at 9.
Kasa Fox 2 is looking for “the Face” to represent our Fox affiliate under a one year paid contract, wherein you’ll make statewide appearances, televised, online promos and commercials and appear in other media.
