    Andy Alford served four years at WGCL as GM. There could be a longer-served GM before him.

    Speaking of Doerr, could CBS46 become 46 Action News?

    Not in this lifetime! Not with Channel 2 Action News dominating the market.

    So Azteca had a very short stint with WGEN? If what your saying is right, a much shorter stint than when WJAN/WFUN had MundoFOX?

    Maybe not, but it could become 46 Eyewitness News, since nobody else in the market is using it.

    Which brings up an interesting, yet disappointing IMO, observation, why is it that Buzzr is in Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, And Gainesville, but not Miami? Seriously? No Buzzr in a big city like Miami, while smaller cities get to enjoy it?

    Dish Network has been carrying Buzzr on Channel 245 since last year.

    I'm surprised that when WLVI added Buzzr that clearance on a WSVN sub didn't come with.
     
  9. In those situations, Fox owns stations in every one of those Florida market but Miami, and they're were the first station group to Buzzr on their subchannels. For the first several months of the operations, the Fox station group were the only ones airing Buzzr, besides a couple low-powers in Fresno and elsewhere.

    Just talking strictly about the MGM library...compared to the other major studios, I don't think they produced that much TV content compared to CBS/Paramount, Sony, and 20th Century Fox; even then, Turner/Time Warner still owns a lot of early-MGM content. At least with those studios mentioned, they've maximized a lot of use of their TV content across the diginets--Sony especially (owning GetTV and the content deal they've had with Antenna TV since the latter launched in 2011). One thing for sure...this Sinclair-Tribune deal will effect Antenna TV going forward (as well as This TV), as Sony already moved All in the Family, Good Times, and Sanford & Son to GetTV as of last week.

    I was actually expecting it. I was wondering who would be first: Sally-Ann or Eric Paulsen? You know he's next (been at the station roughly the same time as Sally-Ann).

    Sheba Turk should take Sally-Ann's spot, but knowing management, it wouldn't surprise me to see Leslie Spoon get it.

    Actually, Gainesville doesn't have it from WOGX. One of its subs carries ION Television.

    I should have clarifyed that when I wrote Action News, I should have asked if WGCL's news would become similar to WOIO when Doerr was running its news department.

    I actually heard that in Ron Howard's voice, Arrested Development-style.

    Starting the week of January 24th, 2018, the small DMA #200 market of Ottumwa, Iowa and Kirksville, Mo. will finally have all four major networks when KYOU will launch NBC on subchannel 15.2

    This is what the market will have once KYOU has NBC:
    KTVO has ABC on 3.1 and CBS on 3.2
    KYOU has FOX on 15.1 and will soon have NBC on 15.2
    The market has PBS through digital translators from Iowa Public Television.
    It even has a CW cable-only affiliate from "KWOT" (The CW Plus)
