    You gotta blame Hearst's partners like VUZ, CNN (the obnoxious Tabloola-pushing side of that site) and such on that; WISN is a completely sober station on-air, but if you were to go solely on its website and social presences you would think they were running the third coming of a A Current Affair out of Hearst's offices. Compared to the other Milwaukee stations, their Facebook has the worst commenters in the market, by far, and you can tell their on-air staff absolutely would love to do anything else than interact with them (which is why they all have separate personality pages they can control on their own). And it's the same no matter what Hearst station I run into (Twitter is fine; there it's easier to avoid the VUZ/CNN garbage). Pretty much this. If you actually make an effort to improve the product rather than just plugging into the CW and trash talk show producers and calling it a day, you should be considered on these grounds.

    WABC, New York; late news, 1976; the Yankee's American League Pennant win is the top story:

    Honestly, WGHP is definitely more valuable than WXLV/WMYV combined. It will depend on how comfortable they are with the status quo in the Triad and the same goes for St. Louis between KTVI/KPLR and KDNL. Back to WXII. Ever since WCWG entered into an agreement with WXII, Hearst has been pouring much needed resources into WCWG. I'd say the FCC should give it a go just on those grounds alone.

    Part of the death of TV is its own doing, like a habitual smoker that has lung cancer but refuses to give it up, partially out of denial that they've done this to themselves. That said, even companies like Sinclair can only keep it up for so long.

    KSWD will be replaced by K-Love. KSWD, along with KSOQ and WGGY, will be divested to EMF. http://variety.com/2017/music/news/los-angeles-kswd-sign-off-1202588367/

    The Outside Date is the date in which both parties can terminate the deal without paying a breakup fee. The initial outside date for this deal is May 8th, 2018 (one year after the deal was announced). But if this deal doesn't get the greenlight from the FCC and/or the DOJ by that time, the parties agreed to extend the outside date by three months, to August 8th, 2018. But the deal has to get the greenlight by the Tribune shareholders by that May 8th date. Should they both want to break up before the outside date, Tribune has to pay Sinclair $135M. About this possible review, Pai did say after he brought back the UHF loophole in April, that he was planning on doing a review on the national ownership cap (including the discount). Whether he does this review before acting on this transaction (or even doing this review), that's pure speculation at least for now. That's why I said earlier on the speculatron that I take this with a huge grain of salt. I'll believe it when I see it. But whether he does this review or not, he still doesn't have the authority to modfiy the ownership cap himself. Both houses of Congress have the authority to do that. And should a review happens and it drags out, there's also that court case about the UHF discount that could start by those outside dates. And let me remind all of you that this possible review of the ownership cap is not the same as the Quadrennial Review, which reviews the local television ownership rules. That review might start next year.

    Now there's a station that's trapped in a time warp compared to your other uploads. They were using that same open (albeit as Channel 29) in 1993: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id=HFIA_H4EjhA;m=6;s=28 A year later they finally replaced it with a more modern package that I can't find right now (in was in one of NewsActive3's compilations though)

    I have Spectrum, would’ve used their app but you can’t reverse within the app.

    Charter and Viacom agreed to extend the deadline short term as negotiations are proceeding. Some have made a valid point - most Viacom channels won't be missed if taken off and others have no specific purpose anymore. Viacom has a lot of work to do to make itself relevent again.

    New12 New Jersey operates statewide, broadcast not just on Optimum, but also is carried by Comcast and the area that is CharterSpectrum. They still operate their own studio and newsroom in Edison.

    Here's a real treat, WBKP from 2000 using Move Closer to Your World. Yes, really. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id=l7M9Z6USG9Q;t=5

    Two very big shoes to fill at WRAL. It won't be the same after 2018, that's for sure. When you lose big news anchors like Bill Leslie and David Crabtree who have personified WRAL News for decades, its like Charlie Gaddy and Larry Stonger... its hard to swallow and they're irreplaceable once they leave. Truly irreplaceable.

    Say what you will about WGCL, but I fully believe Steve Doerr just made this station 1000x better. CBS46 debuted a new graphics package yesterday with the brand: Local. Real. Everywhere. The pictures are posted in chronological order of the newscast. Bumper In Headlines 1 Headline 2 Open goes from Local -> Real -> Everywhere -> CBS46 Logo Open goes from Local -> Real -> Everywhere -> CBS46 Logo Open goes from Local -> Real -> Everywhere -> CBS46 Logo Open goes from Local -> Real -> Everywhere -> CBS46 Logo Anchor L3s, note neither Vince or Meghan are the main anchors, Amanada Davis is currently a morning anchor and the other spot is vacant after Bobby Kaple's departure Cross-shot with the updated desk graphics New weather graphic u3s can be seen More below...

    I do see a bit of the KTLA/last WTTG logo under Metromedia, but I think the Gannettoi...er...Tegnoids kept it a bit closer to home ie...

    Not too sure how I feel about the logo. I liked that the current one incorporated the arch into it. Also odd that they showed us what the new logo is going to be so soon. Studio doesn't look like the standard Tegna studio either.

    I think WSYX ought to move Good Day Columbus and their noon show to the old WCMH space at Broad and High... NBC built the space yet Media General didn't want it. WBNS currenly owns the rights to the ticker, however the studio has been for rent since 2016. Fun fact: when WCMH leased the space out, the screen broadcasted The Today Show, their newscasts, Nightly News and NBC SRs. A jewelry store just moved out of it.

    That as well. Although they still don’t bring in coverage for News12 in the entire NYC area. Especially in Queens, Staten Island, and Manhattan.

    I think it's supposed to be a rip-off of the Ch-8 in Fort Bragg, CA that used to do some news way back in the dark ages. Psssst... Nobody in Northern California says "Norcal". Yes, it's acceptable to say "Socal" when referring to all counties south of Santa Barbara....not to be confused with "Soquel" located in Santa Cruz County. Just like no sane native Californian would ever say "Cali". Hollywood screws everything up.

    You do have a point there. It might have an excellent case for the failing station waiver as well.

    Actually, I had to unfollow WMUR's Twitter account because it tweets so frequently and often only with links to "human interest" stories I had no interest in.

    Speaking of Des Moines, is it just me or does WOI's promo music from 1984 sound similar to KNSD's 1985 theme?
