@  rkolsen : (01 October 2014 - 02:31 AM) If KSNV contributed $18M to GEnesis it also sounds like a boondoggle.
@  rkolsen : (01 October 2014 - 02:30 AM) But the GEnesis project was an early broadcast automation system as well. But if KSNV contributed $18M to the project it
@  rkolsen : (01 October 2014 - 02:26 AM) I was reading through affiliation agreements as I am falling asleep and came across this figure of $18,000,000 paid by KSNV for the NBC GENESIS Project. I only found one or two articles online dating back to 1997 about their plan to have multiple satellite feeds (one stated 40) for targeted advertising / programming as what I'd call an early big data project but I think they ended up using parts of it for their digital distribution. I'm wondering if they were ever successful (even in parts) in their undertaking. I assume it never came to seeing as I know they currently have at least six regularly scheduled feeds (1 for each time zone + AK and HI) for Nightly News.
@  rkolsen : (30 September 2014 - 08:27 PM) Looked like in March wplg had the most viewers but WSVN won the demo.
@  swillh2k2 : (30 September 2014 - 08:02 PM) figures w/ the Hispanic community in South Florida. Isn't WSVN #1 among English stations?
@  rkolsen : (30 September 2014 - 07:34 PM) Telemundo's flagship WSCV has been #1 in Miami at 23:00 for 17 months running. Beating out all other stations in the market.
@  rkolsen : (30 September 2014 - 07:29 PM) I wish there was a local Spanish language affiliate here in this market. But Baltimore is DMA 57 when it comes to Hispanic households with only 41000.
@  rkolsen : (30 September 2014 - 07:27 PM) There were just some
@  Raymie : (30 September 2014 - 02:45 PM) In Phoenix, it took 27 years from the launch of KTVW for Telemundo to acquire a full-power station. And it took more time for Telemundo here to match Univision pound-for-pound with newscasts.
@  Raymie : (30 September 2014 - 02:44 PM) In some ways it's justifiable given that Univision historically has a much larger viewership. That said Telemundo's news division has come extremely far in a very short timeframe, but it must make up the ground that Univision gained by being first, dominant or the only source of news in certain timeslots and days of the week.
@  rkolsen : (30 September 2014 - 11:39 AM) Jorge Ramos certainly has a big ego In 2016, no one is going to be able to make it to the White House without Fusion and without Univision.” That's why I prefer to get bilingual news from Jose Diaz Balart who I think is much more likable.
@  cbs2newengland : (30 September 2014 - 09:14 AM) @Mark, I'm surprised that the NMSA doesn't have dynamic databases because because with that update KOTV should've had the new sample and name - that site has evolved in the last many years - I bet its more complicated managing it. | I can't speak for Sportsnet, but I know candians are pissed that CBC and TSN will be loosing their rights, especially TSN which the only sport they mostly cover is hockey. What I hope won't happen is something like pulling an American stunt, crapify the coverage to the lowest common dominator and not reach to that obscene "casual"/"pink hat" fanbase who can't find the puck without an HD screen - I know people who were able to find the puck on the snowy days of WSBK back in the day, thank you!
@  Mrtraveler01 : (30 September 2014 - 12:30 AM) Rogers is spending the big bucks for their new NHL rights package. Gotta give them credit, maybe they'll quit doing a half-ass job running Sportsnet.
@  Viper550 : (29 September 2014 - 09:55 PM) So Sportsnet's NHL studio is even larger than ESPN's NFL studio. That is impressive
@  mark : (29 September 2014 - 01:01 PM) @cbs2newengland Also interesting that KOTV is still listed as having used the KHOU 1998 theme (which actually debuted in 1997) despite the theme being folded into The Spirit listing. A simple oversight I'm sure. I tend to think WFAA Custom and Daybreak themes should be folded into The Spirit as well. Just my opinion.
@  mark : (29 September 2014 - 12:57 PM) @cbs2newengland I see what you mean now. Looks like it was updated very recently back to The Spirit. I was thinking of the last time it was changed (a few years ago) FROM The Spirit to KHOU 1998 Theme. Looks like it's now back to being listed as The Spirit.
@  TennTV1983 : (29 September 2014 - 12:10 PM) WREG may be getting new graphics today. I'll have to check it out at 4:00pm.
@  cbs2newengland : (29 September 2014 - 07:04 AM) @Mark, thanks for the info - I do think Mr. SouthernMedia had updated the theme (not sure if if I should say what I was doing on the open packetwaves) because I have an Audacity file dated from August 26th had the "KHOU 1998 Theme" recorded of just the opens and there weren't any pauses in between the cuts. It does sound like Stephen Arnold and it has The Spirt sig, etc.
@  Viper550 : (28 September 2014 - 11:35 PM) Mainly because Shaw uplinks the Detroit stations for Canadian providers, and cable providers around the Toronto area have traditionally used Buffalo stations
@  Viper550 : (28 September 2014 - 11:34 PM) And with that WKBW purchase, Scripps now controls most of the ABC stations seen on cable in Ontario, Canada.
