About TV Barn
I'm Aaron Barnhart, and I'm the television writer at the Kansas City Star. For five years I wrote a weekly Internet guide to late-night television called LATE SHOW NEWS. It led to freelance assignments, which led to my current position.
Since my beat now includes all of television -- and has been that way for quite some time -- I thought it best to make late-night TV part of a larger Internet presence. So I closed down LATE SHOW NEWS and opened up TV Barn.
TV Barn offers several features, nearly all of them updated every weekday:
TV Barn on the radio
Hear Aaron Barnhart on the radio -- wherever you are! Kansas City's top-rated newsradio station KMBZ is now on the Web, which means you can tune in at 7:20 a.m. Central time every Tuesday morning to hear Mr. TV Barn gabbing with the KMBZ anchors. Come to the link, and be on time as the segment only lasts three minutes: http://www.broadcast.com/radio/news/kmbz
Frequently asked questions
Q. Hey! What happened to LATE SHOW NEWS?
On February 17, 1999, its fifth anniversary, LATE SHOW NEWS was folded into the general-interest TV Barn website and e-mail list.
Q. But you're keeping the mailing list going?
That's right, only now instead of being devoted exclusively to late-night television, the LATE-SHOW-NEWS mailing list now delivers a large portion of that week's TV Barn website postings, plus the usual late-night line-ups from Sue Trowbridge's website.
The front portion of the weekly mailing -- sent out every Sunday night -- is the "bulldog edition" of TV Barn, containing all of that week's "Pick to Click" and "Show du Jour" selections, reader mail and other features that are prepared in advance.
What you won't get from the weekly mailing are any breaking news, overnight reviews or direct links to my stories that appear in the Kansas City Star. You'll have to come to TV Barn to get those, and naturally I encourage you to check in daily.
Q. I will, I promise! But tell me how to join the mailing list anyway.
Send a message to email@example.com with this message:

Shortly thereafter you'll be mailed a confirmation message from the list-server. Simply reply to it with the message "OK" and you'll be added. If that doesn't work, send me mail and I'll get you on the list.
