Clear Channel’s CBS affil, KGPE, in Fresno is looking great, particularly their website. The teamwork that goes into the online effort involves CSD MIKE HENRY, Design Director PETER STENFORT, and their relatively new webmaster named BENJAMIN KIRK. Sounds like a great team. Check out that logo. They’re giving their web special treatment, which is a very smart way to go. A recent study shows that TV and radio and cable websites are growing like mad, bringing in money, too.
