Aeverine Zinn closing INNewsCenter

When I launched INNewsCenter at Mississinewa High School as part of a Computer Technology project on November 1, 1999, INNewsCenter covered only the Fort Wayne and Indianapolis markets. Over the years, the site grew into 20 markets and the five states that surround Indiana.

During the twelve years INNewsCenter went through four different domains (on GeoCities, Tripod, and INNewsCenter.net).

During the last several years, the fate and future of INNewsCenter has been challenged, including the 2006 C&D from Gray Television and Scripps, among others. Two notable challenges that ultimately deicded INNewsCenter’s fate proved to be the Bright House Networks/WISH-TV dispute in October 2008 and the aftermath in my origin of Marion, indiana that followed by WANE-TV, WPTA, and WISE-TV being gone from Bright House Networks in Marion, and more recently Nexstar’s spat with Fox that cost Evansville’s WTVW and Fort Wayne’s WFFT.

With the announcement of Aeverine Zinn, yours truly, auditioning for American Idol’s 11th season in Pittsburgh, the Bright House Networks/WISH-TV dispute from October 2008, WFFT losing Fox on August 1, 2008, and my bout from recent pysical, menal, and emotional health scares that began last June, has lead me to only one decision.

It is with sadness and regret that I have decided to shut down INNewsCenter.net after 12 years in operation. INNewsCenter on YouTubewill stay in operation with an occasional video when I have the time. This was not an easy decision for me that I had to consider many things to consider..

In closing, I want to say to all visitors that ever visted INNewsCenter, you have all been very grateful over the 12 years. So give TVNewsTalk.net a fair break. If you don’t, I promise you whomever buys the INNewsCenter.net domain name will just put another Encyclopedia Dramatica-type web site. Then you’ll be sorry.
As I enter a new chapter in my life, I will be writing a new song in the memory of INNewsCenter. I will give you a hint – It will be a medley of the lyrics of Frank Sinatra’s My Way and another song to be announced on the “Aeverine Zinn for American Idol” Facebook page.
