    If they ever did expand the 10:00 p.m. news to weekends, they could move Sports Sunday to 9:30 or 10:30. A few of Fox's O&O's (such as KTVU and KSAZ) already air their Sunday sports wrap-up shows after local newscasts aired in the traditional 10:00 (Central/Mountain)/11:00 p.m. (Eastern/Pacific) timeslot.

    My apologies if this is in the wrong thread (and move it if its in the wrong thread) but...

    It looks like MTV-U is about to be redundant. Cheddar has bought the transponder system that broadcasts MTV-U and will replace it with CheddarU.

    For the record, MTV-U isn't dead but its more redundant now as CheddarU has already started broadcasting.

    A couple of M&As tonight.

    Ion is getting another spectrum-less station.

    They're getting KILM for $10M. KILM has a CSA with Ion-owned KPXN,

    Also, Marquee Broadcasting acquires another GA station, WSST for $700K.

    They do and it only 30 minutes at 3pm and an hour at 9am too.

    KOMO 4 in Seattle has a 3:30pm News
    KSNV 3 in Vegas has an hour long 3pm

    If I was his lawyer I would advise him to resign yesterday.
    You have a difficult time convincing judges and jury you have suffered damages if you stay .

    It's like domestic violence cases...you get the heck out of the situation first. You don't stick around any longer hoping things will get better.

    Leaving sends a very clear message that you are serious

    #MeanwhileInOrlando, WKMG (News6GettingResults) expands to the 9:00am hour next month. All three of their anchors - Bridgett Ellison, Julie Broughton, and Candace Campos - share different experiences and specialities, but also are working mothers, which, according to GM Jeff Hoffman, “allow them to use the breadth of their knowledge to ask questions and get answers that will ultimately get results for all of our viewers.” The new newscast will debut July 2, with solely Broughton and Campos (Ellison is currently on maternity leave after welcoming her second child).

    Almost all stations in that market have extended morning newscasts. Guess WKMG wanted to join the party.

    Pittsburgh Television weather and the City of Pittsburgh will never be the same without the Dean of Pittsburgh Weather... Joe DeNardo... you're
    irreplaceable... you're a quintessential weatherman... and when we look to skies tonight and when on sunny days and stormy nights; we see what's
    happening in the weather... Joe Said It Would.

    RIP Joe DeNardo and Godspeed.
    Thoughts and prayers to Joe's family and the entire team of WTAE Action News 4.

    Didn't years ago WTVC do a newscast that was very similar to this, blatantly calling it "NewsChannel 9 For Women"?

    Joe was the best to have ever done it in Pittsburgh, no doubt about that.

    Why Viacom hasn't just killed all the SD video networks (I know the answer, and it involves the symbol $ and retrans) is confusing. Now that MTV Live is the only network carrying them in HD format, watching them in stretched out SD seems like a dumb thing in 2018 when a simple query gets it on YouTube easily.

    WOTV still has their 'for women' gimmick, but now it's mostly just medical segments and purposeful scheduling of programming under Nexstar (thankfully).

    Initial speculation was that she had been hit. Based on her injuries, doctors and even her coach believe she fell off the bike.

    Here's the story from a reputable journalist...
