They're not "on your side" or "late-breaking"; they're just the best of the best. Tucson's NBC affiliate outpaces the rest of the local TV-news field in the eyes of our readers, who put KVOA back up on top after giving the throne to another station the past two years. Though just as gimmicky—SKYNET is watching you!—as any other channel in terms of trying to find ways to cover Tucson, KVOA spends far less time and energy over-covering the weather, which by itself might be a reason to put it No. 1. The network got some international street cred this summer when former reporter Savannah Guthrie got the cushy job of sitting next to Matt Lauer on NBC's Today.
