As he has in the past, Pando heatedly defends those "special reports" as "incredible pieces that made people think." Moreover, he said, such stories constituted just one percent of the thousands of issues and events "Fox 6 News" has reported over more than three years.
While the Fox network's core audience is adults 18 to 49, Pando and Jones conceded TV news watching appeals mainly to individuals 25 to 54, specifically "39 plus." Consequently, "Fox6 News" and other TV news entities must work harder to attract 18-to 38-year-olds, they said.
