    They were very careful never to say that Brad Johansen would directly replace Crabtree. He was obviously hired to fill a vacancy that would be left by Crabtree leaving, but I was under the impression that Gerald Owens might move up to 6p and Johansen would be the 4p/5:30p/late night anchor. When Jeff Hogan was hired it was said from the start that he would replace Bill Leslie, but the same has not been said of Brad that I recall.

    Interesting - especially since viewers likely assumed Johansen was going to get a full-time anchor role when Crabtree retired.

    This is speculation, but I wonder if this opens the door for him to come back to Cincinnati. A little digging on his Twitter feed reveals his high school age daughter is still attending HS in the Cincinnati area. And Kyle Inskeep isn’t terribly captivating at the anchor desk. (They should’ve given that role to Adam Clements, who was very publicly trying out for the role, but I digress.)

    It has to be frustrating to leave WKRC after 20+ years (with no Rob Braun retirement in sight) for a lead anchor gig, only to get sidelined a year into it.

    A good indicator a station has zero long-term commitment to a "new" newscast...

    No outside promotion or ads.
    No billboards...
    No Bus ads...
    No outside radio...
    No newspapers...

    No commitment.

    Today was Gene Cubbison's last day at KNSD! He is retiring! He is going to be missed for sure! KNSD did a nice piece on him.

    Suspicious package outside KDFW



    UPDATE: Package is not a threat, according to Dallas Police.

    Sounds like KDFW needs more security. First the guy who rammed the building with a truck. Now this ...

    Problem with KDFW is that it appears it is is up against by three streets and looks like their main lot is across a Patterson Street from the station. So something that appears in the street but off the property could still cause alarm. The only thing they could do security wise is put up bollards on the sidewalks but they may not be able to do it as the sidewalks are likely government property.

    I believe Nexstar doesn't use any outside promotion for its news programming, at least from where I live.

    Don't forget that Jeff Hogan left WBNS in Columbus for WRAL after he got tired of waiting for Jerry Ravish to retire.

    There has been an active shooter at a hospital in Medina, Ohio, and this is what was going on the four news stations in Cleveland around 2:30pm and 3pm.

    WKYC - local news coverage
    WJW - local news coverage
    WOIO - local news coverage

    WEWS - General Hospital and Who Wants to Be a Millionaire!!!!!

    News 5 didn't bother to go into breaking news coverage, except for a ticker at the bottom on-air, and of course its website and social media. To me, that's like saying not to bother watching the station anymore. That is a prime example of dropping the ball big time.

    First, KJRH and now WEWS. I really hope Scripps can realize that this isn't the way to do things. Otherwise, I feel sorry for Cordillera, KXXV, WTXL and potentially Tribune or Cox as well.

    WEWS mentioned during The Now Cleveland that they were going to stream a press conference for the arrests related to a different crime on its app instead of airing it on its newscast.
