Ava Nieves/INNCD Investigates



Last week, INNCD Investigates exposed a gender crisis in television newsrooms. This first investigation of The Indiana State News Center and Discussion into women in newsrooms has lots of people talkling. We're listening and so are Indiana Government officials. Here is a sample of the more than 200 emails and telephone calls following this investigation.

"I want to thank you on the ongoing investigation involving Women in television news and I for one say the least shocked that men are filling in for women and yet you keep finding the same stations are still doing it but at the same time what can I do to make sure it does not happen to another station. Please stay with this investigation until it is resolved and I would like to hear what media giants have to say about this totally lack of equality as this ordeal and tell them they are watching this report as well."
Lynne in Marion, IN

"How dare you do an investigation where my television market failed your investigation. In my opinion Houston is the most dynamic of the top 10 markets because of how different each station is with the personalities and management. I belive in diversity, but your investigation exposed gender diversity."

Ralph in Houston, TX

"So it's okay if you expose women in the newsroom when its two women, but not two men. You have exposed a hypocritic report."
Chris in Tampa, FL

"Men and Women in television news are no big deal. You can always change the channel if you can't statnd two women or two men . It is important for equality in television news to ensure a fair and balanced newscast. Gendere and diversity are two strong words and should be taken seriously."
Holly in Muncie, IN

"Ava, I think you did an amazing job investigating and exposing this. This was something I would never think about, like many otheers. In a time when V-Chips are available for television content--they should also make one for newscasts--I appreciate you bringing this to all."
Sabrina in Warsaw, IN

"I used to work at WXIN-TV and I am pretty sure that INNCD had no permission to use WXIN footage on INNCD. This is not news."
Zach in Indianapolis.

"Your investigation looks sexist as it bothers me that INNCD claims that two men anchoring a newscast is a serious issue, yet tw women are okay? Men are no better than women and women are no better than men. Men and women are there to survive in nature, therefore we're equal."
A Viewer that saw our report at our sister site in Florida


INNCD is the only news discussion site in the country to expose an investigation of this nature.
