Indeed, I see the following message when I turn to WPIX:

"The owner of this channel has unfortunately forced DIRECTV to temporarily remove it from your line-up despite our repeated requests to keep it on. While we regret their decision, typically disruptions of this sort last a very short time."

Does anyone know if WPIX uses a 7 second delay on the 8am hour of the newscast?
I've been noticing on FiOS just before the show ends the video jumps forward as if they are going out of delay and we miss a few seconds on the show.

NY Daily News reports that WPIX has ended their helicopter sharing deal with WCBS and has since leased their own helicopter.

What is WPIX's fascination with pastel colors? First the studio, then the graphics, now in commercials (especially for the morning news). I thought the pastel colors used in the morning news commercial were for Easter, but they're still using them. It looks terrible.

Tom Zweier, a Shadow/Metro traffic alum has been hired for Air11 for both morning and evening newscasts.
So PIX has entered the chopper wars again.
I've heard that name for years and he always sounded very good on radio. I believed he subbed on NBC4 for a few months. Good pickup for PIX.

Craig Allen is now on the website so is likely full time now. Another good pick up to bolster their weather team

Kerry Drew is likely no longer with PIX. I saw her reporting on Fox 5

Besides their anchors it doesn't seem like PIX has any full time people.. People there last a few months and they bring in a new round of reporters.. It's so dumb cause their news content sucks and the people are always being moved around.. Atleast if they stuck with the same people viewers would watch and get used to the reporters.

I'm not a fan of WPIX graphics, but their breaking news ticker used in today's weather alerts are not bad, nice and clean. Whereas others stations looks bulky and out of sync.

Former "Survivor" contestant and local news anchor Jeff Varner just landed an anchor spot in North Carolina. TV Spy's report says he came from WPIX - I don't ever recall seeing him on-air. Does anyone else?

Their website is apparently in the process of being updated. New home page. Weather page has new interactive and updating features. It looks similar to a Tribune type template and is definitely better than what they had. Nice to see all shows broadcast from the studio except for the top 11 at 10. The Sandy special from the anchors and reporters was solid. Word is there is another Sandy special in production from the weather team. I think they've made some good fast paced changes in look and news coverage over the past few weeks and with the coming switches next week, it'll probably improve even more. Seems like recent news events have given them the kick in the butt to compete.

WPIX made two small changes to the 10pm newscast tonight.

The desk used at 5pm and weekends was replaced with the anchor standing behind a small glass table.

They added the news scroll to the bottom of the screen and all it's doing is promoting how to contact WPIX via WPIX.com, e-mail and social media.

Anyone else see Ann Mercogliano on last night? She was reporting. I had no idea she had even left channel 2. I have a feeling the anchor lineups are not set yet at all. I wonder if Mercogliano will be given a chance to anchor at some point.
