  1. Why? We're talking market 193 here... There's probably no demand for more news.

  2. Classic Gannett/Tegna. They just spent all that money to move KING, KONG and NWCN to new headquarters. That would have been the ideal time to pull the plug. Instead, they spent lots of money to build a secondary studio, auxiliary control room and dedicated offices specifically for NWCN that will wind up having lasted less than a year. In addition to the money they've already spent, they're in a long-term lease and will be paying rent for that unnecessary space for years. Pure genius.

  3. WABG (ABC & FOX), WNBD-LD (NBC) and WXVT (CBS), all either owned and/or operated by Northwest Broadcasting, have consolidated under one branding (The Delta News) and, at this time, it seems that WXVT's news department is the only one of the group that's producing newscasts. The group's website, www.yourdeltanews.com, only displays a message that says the site is "under construction." Don't expect big things to happen with this change in this market. This seems solely to be a move to cut expenses and, unfortunately, staff. WIKIPEDIA: "Commonwealth Broadcasting Group agreed to

  4. I knew that it had lasted a while, but it's still nice to see it. As to WBRZ, it's a lot like the WFMY "cube" open from the same year.

  5. Most of the New World stations (and some Fox O&O's) did use CNN as their main affiliate service until Roger Ailes got the FTS chairmanship and ordered them non-renewed.

  6. There come a point when it would just be better to just pipe in another market's station(s). Greenwood-Greenville has reached that point. I remember when FOXNET shut down a decade ago. That was the ONLY reason WABG started their FOX station.

  7. That'll never happen. There will never be a KING 5 News at 11:00 and KONG 6 News at 11:00 or a KING 5 News at 4:00 and KONG 6 News at 4:00 because its like saying that KONG will open up its own news department to compete against KING. If anything, there can be more regional-focused newscasts that can be coming in a style of NWCN for KONG, but don't expect that.
