Chris Parente breaks monitor
Chris Parente broke the monitor on live TV and everyone at the station is making fun of him
DENVER — Chris Parente broke a monitor on the set during the Everyday show on Thursday and now we’re all making fun of him.
It happened before he was reading a story when he stood up and the chair fell back and hit the monitor.
And then Greg Dutra did the forecast on the broken monitor.
But our bosses weren’t too happy about it.

Fox31 cancels “Every day,” Chris Parente replaces Ernie Bjorkman on “Daybreak” and more Denver TV changes
Taking stock of local TV-news changes at the top of 2019
Ernie Bjorkman has no hard feelings about being pushed off the air by KWGN-Channel 2 — for the second time in less than a decade.
“I had a two-year contract with a third-year optional, and they decided not to exercise the third year,” said the veteran TV-news personality, who started in the Denver market at KMGH-TV, now The Denver Channel (an ABC affiliate), in 1982. “I never expected to be replaced by Chris (Parente), but he does a very good job.”
Bjorkman and Parente’s employers at Tribune Media, which operates KWGN-Channel 2 (The CW) and KDVR Channel-31 (Fox), are just doing what local TV-news operations have always done: tinkering with their lineups in order to draw more viewers.
The practice has an added urgency these days. Smartphones, social media, and streaming services have transformed the way we consume news and entertainment, and TV stations have had no choice but to adapt.
While network affiliates battle for precious slivers of attention and advertising dollars, digital distractions multiply, which has led to an overall decline in local TV-news viewership, according to a 2018 report from the Pew Research Center. The average audience for the morning-news time slot saw the biggest decline, with a 15 percent decrease over 2017.
