@  skbl17 : (23 August 2014 - 02:29 PM) But of course.
@  Raymie : (23 August 2014 - 01:05 PM) @skbl — Buying ITV plc would be a major mess and I don't think Ofcom (not to mention any competition commission) would like it
@  skbl17 : (23 August 2014 - 12:13 PM) Of course, I don't see any movement on that front until the current franchises expire in 2024.
@  skbl17 : (23 August 2014 - 12:13 PM) No, Comcast will not purchase any ITV franchises. Even if ITV was willing, I don't think Ofcom (the telecommunications regulator) would approve.
@  cbs2newengland : (23 August 2014 - 08:47 AM) I've made mic flags with cardboard, with blue cardstock paper, with packaging tape to make it a smooth material then got some $2.99 Helvetica letter stickers from the local AC Moore and made myself a semi-professional flag - couldn't afford $20+ for a few flags for me. On Every Simpsons Ever, they've always were great with conspiracies like how NASA needed to improve the space program because of low Nielsens. My next best one was all the media heads meeting at the top of Ms. Liberty to come up with the next pandemic to scare the public (a few seasons back.)
@  rkolsen : (23 August 2014 - 05:59 AM) I'm wondering since Viacom has bought Channel 5 in the UK do any of you think Comcast/NBC will buy all of the ITV franchises. NBC's production company over there make a lot of their dramas like Downton Abbey and Mr. Selfridges.
@  rkolsen : (23 August 2014 - 05:42 AM) @ Weeters - The worst is when they scotch tape the mic flag when they don't use the high quality transparent tape. Or when you see the foam core slipping out from underneath the mic flag that's been duct aped over and over again.
@  CircleSeven : (23 August 2014 - 04:47 AM) The day KB get the Scripps website, it should be jubilation
@  channel2 : (23 August 2014 - 04:45 AM) Speaking of broken things, I'm hoping that Scripps spruces up WKBW's website soon. It's horrid right now.
@  Weeters : (23 August 2014 - 04:39 AM) Trying to get a TV station to replace something broken is like trying to squeeze water out of a rock. If they can krazyglue a mic flag back together, then that's a "savings" of however much a new one cost.
@  24994J : (23 August 2014 - 02:25 AM) Are you asking or telling? lol
@  PTVNews : (23 August 2014 - 02:11 AM) ....should be babies, not baby's.
@  24994J : (23 August 2014 - 02:10 AM) Wow. Just, wow.
@  channel2 : (23 August 2014 - 01:52 AM) Impromptu picture here: http://i.imgur.com/yxiD63L.jpg
@  Raymie : (23 August 2014 - 01:34 AM) On its front page. Amazing.
@  Raymie : (23 August 2014 - 01:33 AM) KYMA's site has a news article up that's 18 months old.
@  A3N : (23 August 2014 - 01:13 AM) I agree. They should have extra mic flags to replace the one's that need to be replaced but something so simple becomes difficult. Hell, I remember KUSI duck taped a mic flag and used it it on air for months before they stopped using it. Then there's KNSD who despite being an NBC O&O, kept using a mic flag that had one broken side (which was very visible).
@  rkolsen : (22 August 2014 - 10:55 PM) I don't know why stations don't replace mic flags when they get damage or torn. I found a place if you buy less than 3 they are $45/ piece. But say you are replacing your "fleet" of mic flags they are $26 if you order 10-15. It's not like it's an expensive piece of equipment or like needing to rewrap or repaint your live trucks.
@  Charles : (22 August 2014 - 10:42 PM) I see KUSA has finally gotten new mic flags for the first time in probably 20 years. They're just a simple 9 with a small peacock in the corner. Looks nice.
@  rkolsen : (22 August 2014 - 10:26 PM) What time do all your late local newscast start? Here WMAR, WJZ & WBFF all start at 11:01 but WBAL starts the two seconds after the last vanity card at 10:59:30. I'm wondering if they are covering up national ads since WRC starts at 11:01.
