Despite ESPN's overwhelming presence and impact on such a fluid story, WMTV's Robb Vogel, WISC's George Johnson and WKOW's Jake Zimmermann tried to follow every plot twist while keeping the Favre content fresh for their viewers.
...
"I'll run into people at the mall or in a store, and they'll give me an earful on how they're sick and tired of hearing about Favre," said Zimmermann, the Ch.27 sports director for a little over a year.
...
"The biggest hurdle was trying to decipher what was fact and what was not," Zimmermann said of the speculation surrounding Favre and his next move.
...
"We were constantly looking at the breaking news ticker on the bottom of the screen because the story was changing so much," Zimmermann said.
There was another ESPN influence that was more subtle."From a production standpoint, we were watching and trying to learn things," Vogel said."While we're not directly competing with ESPN, our viewers expect that kind of production value and that kind of quality to be put into your work, even on a local level."
To what extent did Vogel, Zimmermann or Johnson feel like they could pass along their own editorial comments on Favre or the Packers?"In some respects, I wish we were able to do a little bit more," said Zimmermann, echoing the others' sentiments."But we were more into presenting the facts and what was being reported."
The fact is, none of them have much air time to devote exclusively to any one subject, including Favre.In the 6 p.m. newscast, Zimmermann and Vogel each get 3 minutes for sports.
...
"You can argue the Bucks are more of a Milwaukee team," Zimmermann said.
...
Vogel is from Minneapolis, Minn., and St. Cloud State; Johnson is from Pittsburgh, Pa., and Howard University; Zimmermann is from Poynette and the University of Wisconsin.

And the story was often teased accordingly, with the requisite "person-on-the street" interviews to enhance the local coverage. : "The biggest hurdle was trying to decipher what was fact and what was not," Zimmermann said of the speculation surrounding Favre and his next move.
