    With respect, that’s likely because a good number of “the posters on this board” are employed by or have experience with stations in this market or others, and may be more keenly aware of the economics that drive business decisions in this industry.

    We are each certainly welcome to our opinions, but I do think we need to thoughtfully consider the perspective of those actually working in the trenches.

    Perhaps it’s the case that ratings aren’t the only metric driving business decision. Maybe the station profits more from producing and selling advertisements for a newscast than syndicated fare.

    Well said . regardless , changes I think are still needed at fox 29 if they have any chance of surviving long term as a news operation and compete with 6 and 10. Fox 29 should get out of the news business if they strongly feel they can no longer compete or to perhaps cut costs.

    It is about KYW’s new 4pm newscast.

    Alrighty Julius. I'm going to be blunt and explain to you why WTXF and KYW will keep running newscasts despite "ratings woes".

    MONEY!

    As long as WTXF and KYW can sell ad rates at a decent amount and turn a profit, then ratings won't matter as much as you and I would think. That's why WTXF and KYW expanded its news output because they can keep all the revenue in-house rather than sharing it with a syndicator.
