    Out & About

    * weekday programming. WTTG airs opinion programming at 7pm and a political show at 11:30pm so its not entirely news in those timeslots.

    Fox in talks to sell to Disney

    It is because FX and Disney Channel are both cable networks now owned by The Walt Disney Company. It's that simple. If you started seeing FX stuff at Disney.com that would be weird, but the corporate website has a different audience.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Scranton doesn't deserve Tegna. Perhaps it should be swapped for a station in a market that would appreciate the ooh-aahing. WNEP for WFXT. Make this happen. Terrier gets a market actually near their stations and Boston gets a company that actually cares about their stations. The fact that two totally different groups are being forcibly merged together. Anything would've been better than this - Tegna, Scripps, a sale back to Fox, Nexstar, anyone not named Sinclair. Terrier also has zero path to buy anything in New England or New York except maybe Hubbard. And the stations they have in New York right now are small market trash that fit in better with Gray. It's time to put the puppy down and sell 25 to someone that cares. Nobody. If I was Apollo I would turn around and give up now since there is nothing to go for. This the worst case scenario for all involved.

    Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)

    One more from my small collection of early 2000s news footage taped off cable on S-VHS...WCMH 5pm show the Monday after the OSU-Michigan riots in 2002 (November 25, to be exact).

    Fox in talks to sell to Disney

    The FX thing i believe it was because FOX formally owned a network in the late 90s that Disney now owns, Freeform Which used to be called Fox Family and FOX Sports would come on both of them.

    TEGNA Broadcasting and Digital General Discussion

    Everyone, stop whining about Tegna. There is much worse that exists out there and there are people who would kill for Tegna to enter their market. I live in the Boston market and would do anything to get them to make WFXT watchable again. But no, instead of an actual broadcaster they're going to be ruined further by being dragged down by the dregs known as Northwest.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    For all we know, them elderly folks might actually like the ooh-aahing on WNEP, assuming that Tegna even keeps Talkback 16 to begin with.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I really thought that Scripps would end up with the Antenna TV diginet, given that Nexstar isn't into national platforms. But, given the news about KASW, I know where Court TV will end up once it launches.

    What makes you think it's "shaping up to be a dumpster fire"?

    With the WNEP acquisition, this is Tegna’s entry into Pennsylvania.

    So who in the world is Apollo going to go after now in order to build "scale" with Cox assets now that the biggest get out there is gone?

    Oh, shoot! I forgot about Talkback 16. WNEP, get ready because those old folks... hoo-boy!

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Well, here I come! Scripps and Gannettegna are becoming more and more like Sinclair and Nexstar. Buying stations only for reach, ego, and de-localization of content. A shadow of what Scripps and Gannett were in the 2000s when they were among the better owners. At this point, I completely question the rumors of WCNC being sold. The purchase of stations by Scripps is their biggest since buying Journal. The purchase of stations by Gannettegna is their biggest since they bought Belo and London. And we have some stations going from one Deathstar to the other. And one more thing: after Nexstar sells KASW to Scripps, there will be only one mega group having a presence here in Arizona: Gray.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Well, if anything, the Talkback 16 segment will be a doozy when they do change the music. This is how the viewers reacted to the new graphics... We may not have the riots in the streets when WPVI DARED to change their version of MCTYW.....but we could have the start of a dumpster fire on top of Montage Mountain....

    Old Man (Ansin) - Sunbeam - WHDH Parvo-Ridden Puppy - Terrier- WFXT Nobody can deny that Tegna and/or Scripps would be an improvement. Especially since Terrier is quickly shaping up to be a dumpster fire.

    What the heck are you talking about? WHDH and WBTS?

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I'm surprised that Conrad hasn't came out about this, he would've done that a lot earlier. But he's been quiet so apparently he may have FINALLY gotten the message. We shall see

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    In Oklahoma, Nexstar will gain a central station in Oklahoma while being the provider of NBC programming to most of the Sooner State. In the attached map of Oklahoma: Pink - Legacy Nexstar Red - KFOR Sky Blue - KJRH (Scripps) Dark Blue - KTEN - Lockwood

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    There are much worse companies that you can be saddled with than the Lighthouse and the ex-Deathstar. You can be like Boston where there is the Old Man and the Parvo-Ridden Puppy. The synthesized notes of Sixime Son or Stephen Arnold would do well in this wealthy market with much of a swing state in it.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I suppose someone is going to create slow death threads soon because they don't like the companies. Although I think that Scripps and Tegna will actually do well with some of the Fox and CW stations in this deal.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    So is Nexstar keeping both WDCW and WDVM after all, or is it undecided like the Indy situation?
  26. T.L. Hughes

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Interesting to note that it was just last year that Nexstar acquired WHDF. Now it's swapping duopoly partners after only five months under Nexstar's purview. When the deal is completed by summer's end, the combo of WZDX and WHDF could go down as the shortest-lived duopoly (not counting those that were allowed to be kept temporarily to give time to sell a conflicting property) ever.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I wonder who will come out the winner in that complete overhaul in Memphis too. Any big winner or big loser?
