WSLS-TV, the NBC affiliate in Roanoke, Va., is publishing a newspaper version of its show, CrimeTracker. Anchor John Carlin said WSLS has ample material to fill a crime rag, the brainchild of the station manager, Warren Fiihr. And since the station’s slate of crime stories were already being converted to print to populate WSLS.com. Hard copy was the next logical step, Carlin said on the station’s Web site.
WSLS is among 20 or so TV stations owned by Media General, which owns The Tampa Tribune, the Winston-Salem Journal, and the Richmond Times-Dispatch.
The CrimeTracker newspaper is distributed free at convenience stores.
