KXTV rolled out a new name for news it seems.
Something about that screams this...
Good luck to KXTV. I can tell its already failing miserably.
I don't have to tell you, but that title screams "redundant" like Nickelback screams "crappy rock music made for douchebags who drink Blue Ribbon".
Amusingly, I read "LNT" as "LINT".
They dig deep into the navel of news content.
Local News Trash= LNT
Is the new name supposed to be the local version of World News Tonight ?
Evidently now we have a local version of Last Week Tonight.
well they are an ABC affiliate so i doubt that's why. also yes they did open the news as "ABC 10 LNT". and more new stuff from KXTV. they now pan the camera through their news room From and to Commercials similar to KCRA and WSVN. Weather forecasts are on a small box in the corner while other stuff on the Screen they use is on the main part of the weather shown here.
Honey, grab the gun.
Ol' Tegna has gotten too sick.
What the heck was KXTV THINKING? Are they trying to ruin their ratings even more?
And I'm sure just like HLN when these efforts fail, you'll end up with a schedule full of Forensic Files reruns...
Mendonsa and Schornack are a great anchor team.... but this crapola format totally doesn't work for them. She's faking it too much; especially on the 11pm show by herself and he just looks out of his element trying to be hip with a sport coat sans tie. Get a new set in the studio and bring back some experienced reporters and hard news coverage. Some of these "reporters" they have now look like kids... literally like right out of the high school yearbook class. It's pretty hard to take them seriously when they talk to grampa Schornack and mama Mendonsa on camera. Lol
I'm sure this is going to be similar or the same as that horrible format WPIX had in 2010. I think they are going to end as PIX with low ratings and "HOPEFULLY" removing this format.
well considering KTXL is their sister station (which KXTV is also somewhat doing) i doubt it. also interviews are even done in the news room. its even showing a GMA sign in the background. they could've at least used the sac and co studio.
And what next, Time Warner buys TEGNA? Actually, that's a ridiculous scenario, but still, KXTV is last, and not having a duopoly parnter certainly doesnt help matters, not that it would've helped anyway considering how run down the station is
AT&T/Time Warner owning TV stations.... huh.
Didn't AT&T have a share in LIN Broadcasting back in the day, or am I thinking wrong? Anyways, that would be interesting.
You might be right. AT&T did have a 45% share in LIN Broadcasting, which spun off its TV holdings as LIN TV Corporation in 1994. AT&T acquired McCaw Cellular Communications the same year.
