Wednesday's television column erroneously reported that, by some measurements, KTVX-Ch. 4 has surpassed KUTV-Ch. 2 as Utah's No. 2 news station.
Your local television editor misinterpreted the numbers. That statement was not true.According to A.C. Nielsen figures, Ch. 2 did finish third in the early evening newscast competition with Ch. 5 and Ch. 4. But Arbitron numbers showed Ch. 2 and Ch. 4 tied for second.
And both Nielsen and Arbitron showed KUTV finished second to KSL at 10 p.m.
Please watch for Friday's television column, which will re-examine the numbers in greater detail.
I apologize to both Ch. 2 and to Deseret News readers for the errors.
