@  rkolsen : (23 July 2014 - 06:59 PM) BasicTalk the VoIP phone service has been airing commercials, using a "trustworthy anchor" beginning the newscast. They use the current ITV News theme minus the bongs. Funny thing is that I have only seen the ad airing on BBC World News. Likewise on BBC America when they do a World News simulcast they use ITVs previous music.
@  Raymie : (23 July 2014 - 05:36 PM) The ice desk has come to Phoenix on the hottest day of the year: http://www.azcentral...-desk/13064739/
@  Matthew Will... : (23 July 2014 - 03:16 PM) And it's not just about money. Steve Burke was smart enough to hire Valeri Staab, who was smart enough to hire Eric Lerner, who was smart enough to hire Anzio Williams. Those, even more than Comcast Money, are the three principal reasons WCAU's product is extremely strong.
@  Matthew Will... : (23 July 2014 - 02:50 PM) And WCAU's status, flagship or semi-flagship, DOES have everything to do with the fact that Brian Roberts is watching his network on that station. Comcast cable execs, when they demo new technology, often have the box tuned to NBC. They have a vested interest in making the station as successful as possible.
@  Matthew Will... : (23 July 2014 - 02:42 PM) Not to say WPVI doesn't make ungodly amounts of money, obviously.
@  Matthew Will... : (23 July 2014 - 02:41 PM) What channel2 said is correct and documented in the book "ESPN: Those Guys Have All The Fun" by Tom Shales and James Andrew Miller. CapCities was hand-picked by Goldenson to buy the network. Even Tom Murphy and Dan Burke thought it was insane until Goldenson told him Warren Buffett was en route with several billion dollars.
@  channel2 : (23 July 2014 - 01:58 PM) "WPVI's profits funded the ABC deal" is an urban legend. The truth is that Leonard Goldenson convinced Warren Buffett to finance the deal - and as a result, Berkshire Hathaway owned 25% of CapCities/ABC.
@  cbs2newengland : (23 July 2014 - 07:53 AM) HulkieD, I disagree on the idea of the flagship. It's not overrated. WCAU is the flagship not because the CEO turns it on every morning, or goes to their studio to talk to Jim Cramer, the product is so damn better. You want to talk "overrated"? WNBC was (and is) the most overrated O&O, and their product was and is still crappier. Sadly the non flagship markets had their thunder stolen by the overrated WNBC for so many bleeping years! I am not surprised that WPVI was still the cash machine for Disney - remember WPVI was CapCities' cash printing machine to go and buy out the network.
@  cbs2newengland : (23 July 2014 - 07:48 AM) I bet the reason why the hub isn't at WCVB, because the wx in Boston/Needham is allegedly too damn cold than in Orlando. Despite the Boston area having milder climate than say Worcestah', Manch, or any other community north and west of I95 during the "8 months of winter" as some locals describe our climate.
@  cbs2newengland : (23 July 2014 - 07:46 AM) rksolsen: it was about USA Today, the first of the few blasts that got me laughing like crazy. Flagships to me means the years of ownership, the investment into the station and loyalty to mgmt.
@  rkolsen : (23 July 2014 - 04:32 AM) I think the Hearst Hub has more to do with available space and the type of workforce (and universities) that is around Orlando.
@  TennTV1983 : (23 July 2014 - 12:00 AM) KGET's coffee mug is on Seth Meyers' desk tonight.
@  Leavellebrett : (22 July 2014 - 11:28 PM) I agree, Matt. Usually, a flagship just gets all of the bells and whistles before everyone else, but the product isn't as good.
@  Matthew Will... : (22 July 2014 - 11:26 PM) Likewise, WABC might be the ABC flagship... but I think the most profitable station has to be WPVI.
@  Matthew Will... : (22 July 2014 - 11:24 PM) The whole idea of flagship station is kind of overrated. WNBC might be the NBC flagship... but WCAU is the station that the guy who owns the company watches when he wants to check on his network.
@  Leavellebrett : (22 July 2014 - 11:00 PM) Gannett's flagships are KUSA, WUSA, WKYC, WXIA and one could possibly say WFAA.
@  Leavellebrett : (22 July 2014 - 10:58 PM) Why WESH? That's where their graphics hub is. A station group can have more than one flagship. Look at Gannett. Ownership time has no correlation.
@  rkolsen : (22 July 2014 - 10:24 PM) WMARs implementation of the Scripps package drives me nuts because their logo is not scaled to the rest of graphics and is off center by a few pixels pushing it up. I also noticed that MAR still brands their weather as the most accurate but stopped using the tag certified by weatherate. I guess they realized WeatherRate is a scam and they usually offer it to other stations that didn't want to pay the licensing fee which I think ranges from $1000-5000 month.
@  rkolsen : (22 July 2014 - 10:16 PM) Speaking of BAL they just aired a two minute promo for the ravens saying they are the home of the Ravens (because their tv and radio station is official broadcast station).
@  rkolsen : (22 July 2014 - 09:54 PM) Why do you say WESH - it's one of their newest stations.
