It seems that KDVR/KWGN General Manager Joan Barrett does not like the fact that FTVLive has been sharing some of her emails and reporting happenings in her building.

Yesterday, she sent out this email to the staff:

From: Barrett, Joan
Sent: Monday, November 12, 2018 1:18 PM
To: Denver
Subject: Brief announcement

We will have an impromptu meeting at 2:45 PM in the newsroom– please join us if you are free.


So….what was the meeting about?

Barrett announced that the Tribune station is getting a new set for KDVR.

Before the announcement she said she wanted everyone to put their phones on their desks or put them away so nobody would take pictures of the design of the new set. 

She said "I know there's someone in here who likes to leak everything we do" while News Director Brian Gregory stood behind her shaking his head at the staff.

Let’s help Barrett out…it is not someONE it is a number of people.

Also, we have pictures of your purposed set, but we won’t post them, because no one really cares, most of all your competition.
