  1. Most reports say Disney (or Comcast if they end up winning) will only get movie and TV production studios, FX and NG channels, Fox share of Sky TV and Star Channel in India (not sure about rest of Asia). No mention of the regional sports stations are included, and considering they would keep their O&Os, I doubt it. Considering the sports stations have been sold over and over several times whether it be sportschannel to fox, or Yes etc, who knows what will happen. They regionals were originally established as a means to get national reach to compete with ESPN, before they converted Speed

  3. Well well well. (Not surprised one bit though) What are the chances an anchor who deserved it most but didn't get the weekday morning show is next? http://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2017/11/24/another-discrimination-suit-filed-against-ny-news-director AND THIS (read if you have any downtime.. it says alot.

  4. For good reason! I have said for the last few years I miss the old days of two anchors, a clock and JUST THE NEWS. No glitz, no editorializing, no "banter" to try and convince us these peopel are best buds off-camera....... Now, get off my lawn you damned kids!

  5. Looks like the show is getting another rebrand. I just saw a promo for the CBS Evening News with Jeff Glor and it had a new logo set in Proxima Nova. It looked nice actually.

  6. And now for something really obscure... KPHO's carpet-on-the-wall set as seen in the Coen brothers' Raising Arizona (1987). The man playing the anchor -- I believe he makes a few more appearances in the movie -- was the station's real-life film critic, the late Bill Rocz: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id=l6nmESN_3LU;t=49 I believe the set was gone by the time the movie premiered, right?

  7. Wow, did not know they had news in the 80s (Wikipedia sure doesn't). They had a news director in 1988, though, so they must have had news at some point before the station imploded at the start of the 90s and went dark. Channel 30 was still WLBM, a semi-satellite of WLBT, so they probably had the newscast from Jackson. This sure isn't that. Edit: Here's another WTZH news segment — confirming it's them! (Ignore the video description) It's tagged "Action Sports 24", so their news must have been called "Action News". (It does seem like this was the title for their news operation at the t

  9. The channel with the WTOK clips had this and they can't identify where it came from. No other Meridian station would have had a newscast at this time?

  13. How about Billy Bush? He should be all rehabilitated by now, and ready to start clawing his way back up to the top. "This is CBS...the Forgiveness Network."

  14. Tbh, I always wondered why someone didn't do that way back in the day when it was with MyNetwork. It certainly could have qualified back then.

  16. Two WCVB short promos from c.1994: the first with the late, great Dick Albert, the second is to announce the expansion of their morning newscast, which started at 5AM! It was a really unconventional time to start back then. WCVB preempted ABC World News This Morning from the very beginning (1982) and didn't air it until was moved to 4:30am, around 2001, but they always cleared ABC World News Now.
