I've gone ahead and started a Speculatron thread about potential buyers for Scripps's stations.
Consolidation is happening in TV the same way it happened in radio for the same reason it happened in radio and newspapers. Declining revenue and declining margins due to a dwindling customer base. Fewer people are watching local TV because of ever growing options and an increasingly fractured public. Fewer clients are buying ads. And when they are, they're paying less money because they can do math.
This is the reason every station group is decreasing staffing levels. Why every station group is investing in technology that helps eliminate jobs. Why everybody's favorite anchor is now working PR for a hospital or government entity. The groups everyone loves. The groups everyone hates. The groups that put out a consistently good product. The groups that put out a halfassed product. They're all doing the same thing and they're all looking to merge because scale is one of the only ways to maintain margins.
Grow up everyone. You're in a dying industry. Clicking your heels and chanting to yourself there's no place like 1996 isn't going to get you anywhere. I've lost enough friends in the business over the years and know enough people who are still in this godforsaken business to tell you to keep your resume in good enough shape to get you a job in the real world. If you zoom out far enough to see the future, you can see that we're all screwed. The indignant, immature state of denial that this entire forum seems to exist in makes my eyes nearly roll out of their sockets.
Not all of us.
When you drive a bus and have this as a hobby you are quite secure in your industry thanks...... if it dies than nobody needs to get anywhere and the couch potato culture has reached its apex...
Isn't Nexstar already at the cap?
Without the outdated loophole, Yes.
Does anyone know whether or not Corrina Pysa is still at WEWS? I have not seen her on the station since The Now went into a more national-oriented format, and she has simply disappeared.
Interestingly, the CBS agreement only covers WTVF. Does KMTV (Omaha) have a separate agreement?
Speaking of Scripps. They have announced 1st set of new owners of Tulsa radio stations.
WEWS is getting crap for its approach to attempt to interview a rape victim in Newburgh Heights (a suburb in Cleveland, OH). The video on FTVLive shows the police chief approaching the crew, them telling them to leave. The same police department posted it on its Facebook page, but later deleted it, through angry residents slamming WEWS in reviews remain on the page. This comes as the city is suing the station over its investigation regarding the police and traffic tickets.
Meanwhile on LinkedIn:
That ladies and gentlemen is a burn...
Yes. The affiliation agreement for KMTV is much older and doesn't expire until September 2020. The affiliation agreement for WTVF was set to expire this month. My guess is that the KMTV agreement is more station owner friendly. Scripps probably isn't in a hurry to renegotiate that deal.
WOIO tends to get a lot of attention for being an “also-ran” in the market, but WEWS has been terribly unstable WRT management since at least the early 2000s.
So KGTV wants the public help in finding a peeping tom in San Diego..
Why did KGTV blur the face of the suspect?
Is KGTV worried about being sued by a peeping tom?
What if the was the window of a child? Would KGTV still blur the face?
What if the guy was wearing a trump hat?
Nice job KGTV....keep up the good solid investigative work.
Eat, are you trying to get on “Next with Kyle Clark?”
Or are you trying to get on Peep and the Big Wide World because the phrase "peeping tom" made me think of it? Yes, that's a real show, look it up. One of the characters there is called Tom.
You might also want to look up what always comes on after that show. It's called Pocoyo.
Also I partially underlined the previous post by accident. I tried fixing it, but it went horribly wrong as a result of another mistake, so I left it as is. While typing, I was trying to cover the LG logo on my phone with my hand (made very small so I don't pay attention to it), causing those mistakes.
