KARE 11 (NBC) Dominates Twin Cities' November Ratings in Key Newscasts and Prime Time

MINNEAPOLIS, MN -- (Marketwire) -- 11/23/12 -- This November, the community overwhelmingly turned to KARE 11 as their source for local news, information, and prime time viewing. KARE 11 had the most-watched newscasts in the key demographic of Adults 25-54, finishing #1 at 6 a.m., 6 p.m., and 10 p.m.

  • KARE 11 Sunrise at 6 a.m. continued its successful audience growth, bringing viewers the morning's first look at the important news, weather, and traffic of the day as well as special live reporting throughout the Twin Cities.
  • KARE 11 News at 10 p.m. once again dominated late news viewing with expert coverage including KARE 11 Extras, special 10 p.m. reporting that focused on the economy, fire safety, and Minnesota's waterways. In fact, on November 1, KARE 11 aired a first-ever limited commercial 10 p.m. newscast called Project H20 in order to tackle the threats facing the state's waterways.
  • KARE 11's election coverage was a stand-out winner for KARE 11, with more local news viewers turning to the 6 a.m. and 10 p.m. news than any other local source. Both newscasts' ratings more than doubled that of the other stations.

KARE 11 also led in prime time viewing in Adults 25-54 with hits including The Voice, Revolution, Go On and Sunday Night Football.

"In 2012, we worked really hard to get better. We are listening to our viewers and our viewers are tuning in. Innovation, new ideas, and approaches are getting noticed in the community," said KARE President and General Manager John Remes.

Internet-of-Things discussions can end up either going down the consumer gadget rabbit hole or focused on the sort of data logging that industrial manufacturers have been doing forever.

"We build IoT infrastructure products - when you have to integrate different devices, different systems and cloud you have to build an application to do that but we eliminate the need to build an application. Our products can integrate any device, any system, any cloud regardless of protocol," explained Peter Jung, Chief Product Officer at Pulzze Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...

Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
