    Very sad news out of Indianapolis. The Dean of Indiana Television News, Howard Caldwell had passed away yesterday at the age of 92.

    Caldwell started at WRTV 6 (Formerly WFBM) as their main anchor in May of 1959 to his retirement in 1994. Caldwell was inducted into
    The Indiana Journalism Hall of Fame in 1991 and The Indiana Broadcast Pioneers Hall of Fame.

    All of us at TVNT offers out prayers and condolences to Howard Caldwell's family and his friends and colleagues at RTV6.

    Rest in Peace, Howard and Godspeed.

    WGME added a 7PM newscast this week, shifting Entertainment Tonight from its longtime home to 7:30PM. The Insider was cancelled by CTD, which created the vacancy. Sister station WPFO's 6:30PM newscast was cancelled last December after a two-year run.

    Sad news indeed. But like I said before, why don't you stick to offering your own condolences. The rest of us can speak for ourselves and never elected you to speak on our behalf.

    DCRTV reports that WUSA morning meteorologist Allyson Rae is leaving the station to rejoin WBBH in Fort Myers FL.

    I'll be honest, I'm going to really miss KNLC. It's been such a fascinating anachronism since it signed on. No matter when and what I've tuned in over the years, the station seemed like it was at least fifteen years behind the times. Still, Larry Rice always had his heart in the right place (if not his broadcast acumen), and this is $3,750,000 that his ministry can certainly use. Also, Weigel seems a decent owner, so I'm looking forward to what they do with the station.

    Inside edition gave their graphics a refresh once again with an updated logo and slogan. i think i should put this in graphics though their isnt really much else to see other than its new virtual set.

    I'm sure it fascinated Fox Kids viewers in 1994 when it asked kids to write to the governor of Missouri to halt a planned execution.

    It's an interesting station that's for sure. As someone who lives in St. Louis, I'm curious to see how they'll revamp Channel 24, because it desperately needs an overhaul.

    That's all stuff for the Speculatron, in which I created a new thread about yesterday.

    So, how much did Weigel get for the WMLW spectrum? That should give you an idea of how much they have left for acquisitions.

    I've already posted my two cents in that thread. There's a lot more to come from them.

    As a kid growing up in Northern VA, today's a bittersweet day. I was never 100% loyal to any news channel, but when it snowed, I always loved watching Doug Hill, especially because I thought the "ABC7 Snow Machine" was the coolest thing ever.

    Best wishes in your retirement, Doug! Feel free to come back and bring Bob Ryan with you when it snows again! :)

    And Weigel was granted its greenlight from the FCC yesterday.
