@  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.
@  mark : (28 September 2014 - 09:48 PM) I say it should be classified as one theme bc KOTV, former WFAA & KHOU sister station used themes from all versions from 2001-2007.
@  mark : (28 September 2014 - 09:47 PM) @cbs2newengland It was changed a few years ago I think. I tend to think it SHOULD be classified as the same package. It's a tough call because The Spirit/WFAA Custom/KHOU themes weren't ever marketed by Arnold to other stations.
@  Raymie : (28 September 2014 - 01:40 PM) Nice work. I've actually done several articles for DYK, of which three were about Mexican television.
@  justin2kx : (28 September 2014 - 01:39 PM) from Wiki DYK today: " ...that U.S. television broadcasters have used local marketing agreements to work around government policies regulating local media consolidation?" cool. :)
@  cbs2newengland : (28 September 2014 - 11:54 AM) CORR: Hey, I hadn't been to KHOU's page on the NMSA [in a while]... excuse me while I untie my tongue (and fat fingers too) :P
@  cbs2newengland : (28 September 2014 - 11:51 AM) Hey, I hadn't been to KHOU's page on the NMSA, but when did the late 90s theme get Stephen Arnold's Spirit get rennamed? I kind doubt why their theme was in the parent package as WFAA when the sounds, mood/tone are totally 180. It sounds like him, not doubting the composer (now) but doesn't make much sense to me (and why so many years later for people to know.)
@  cbs2newengland : (28 September 2014 - 11:48 AM) I thought it was a facelift (no pun) for FTN. The core design hasn't changed (from what I saw.)
@  Viper550 : (28 September 2014 - 10:09 AM) Look under the DYK section on Wikipedia, right now.
@  PittCleTV : (28 September 2014 - 09:42 AM) New set on Face the Nation?
@  channel2 : (28 September 2014 - 03:24 AM) Granite's website is even more obviously dilapidated now; WKBW and WMYD are still listed there!
@  Raymie : (27 September 2014 - 05:41 PM) KSAZ still hasn't updated its weather crawl with the new website yet.
@  Charles : (27 September 2014 - 03:01 PM) I would kill to have Gannett release Presto. Or for somebody to make a knockoff Wordpress theme of the USA Today site.
