    NBC Sports Boston has suspended radio host Michael Felger for insensitive comments he made in the aftermath of Roy Halladay’s tragic death and towards Dale Earnhardt . He will not appear on the station through Sunday.

    His radio show was simulcast on the regional sports net. NBC Sports Boston has reiterated that although they simulcast the show they have no editorial control over it.

    How put of whack is WKAQ/ Telemundo Puerto Rico’s Schedule? I know they are now an hour ahead of us and I was thinking that they may have a special feed set up for them or a few changes made. But most things look different. I thought they stopped preempting from the main network years ago.

    It looks like Newsy is finally on cable. As I mentioned in the chatboxes, it showed up on Cox Gainesville on Channel 276.

    It's the same channel seen online and on Cincinnati Bell. It's displayed as Newsy___SD, even though its shown in Widescreen.

    I feel like I just got Headline News all over again!

    Out of curiosity could a station that subscribes to a service such as the AP or CNN Newsource have content embargoed in other markets? Say could a Sinclair station that put content up on CNN Newsource have their content embargoed in other markets that Sinclair stations operate.

    Isn't Jane Robelot the same anchor who once worked at WCAU, WGCL and CBS News?

    I don't believe CNN gives stations that power to embargo something in another market just because their parent company owns another station there. I don't think I've ever seen that happen. Typically, something is only embargoed for other stations in the same market or if it includes video that's restricted for one reason or another.

    In one place where I worked, our sister station one market over threw a big stink at us because one of their competitors (a Sinclair station) ran one of our packages that CNN picked up. The reporter had a stand-up in it while wearing our jacket and mic flag with a logo that's nearly identical to our sister station's. They somehow thought there was something wrong going on, but since it's two different markets, there wasn't any embargo on it, so it was fine for the Sinclair station to run it even though our sister station had access to all of our content internally. Probably a dumb move on the Sinclair station's part to run a package that looked like it came from their competitor, but whatever. Or at the very least, they could have edited out her standup.

    That's the double-edged sword with being a CNN affiliate. It's great because Newsource has tons of video, including lots of packages, but if there's more than one CNN affiliate in a market, then competing newscasts can end up running a lot of the same content if you're not careful or get in the habit of only checking CNN for wire content.

    Newsy is owned by Scripps. Comcast also now carries Newsy.
    FUN FACT: Scripps used to own cable systems until Comcast bought them out in 1995.

    You know I was wondering what NBC would do when one of their vertical monitors fails. Well KNBC’s solution is to put put up a pop up sign that’s used at convention.
