TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Hello, I am Eric Duncan, Vice President and General Manager here at KOLD 13. My wife Ginny and I have had Tucson high on our list of “last stops” for years and now we are lucky enough to be here.
The desert southwest is not new to me. I was raised about three hours east of here in Deming, New Mexico, a small farm community in the high desert and a place some of my family still call home. Ginny on the other hand is a Houston girl, so the desert is a whole new experience for her. So far so good. I brought her here at the right time of year.
As we settle in, I hope to better understand the issues facing this community and I will at times offer my opinion and solicit yours. I will tell you now that the opinions I express are my own and not the opinion of the television station.
I believe very strongly that a broadcast news department must deliver the facts without opinion. It is then up to you to take that information and develop your own opinion. I do believe though that healthy civilized debate is what this country was built on and it is something we should continue to do.
We can start tackling those issues next week.
For now enjoy the start of the holiday season. I know that we have a lot to be thankful for in my house, and this year we get to add living in Tucson to the list.
