    What mutated creature will spawn from that "long overdue" idea? How much more slobber can LA produce? Kill me now.

    ...why? Didn't their 6:30 show basically rate hashmarks?

    Not to mention it includes that conservative claptrap about a liberal media. Conservatives' definition of liberal media is anything that provides facts (or as much facts as possible), and is basically a conflation of media outlets that skew centrist and are actually biased toward the Washington establishment as a whole, not by party (i.e., NBC, CNN, ABC) and actual liberal media outlets (Mother Jones, The Young Turks, Axios). Most actual liberal-leaning media outlets are either online or are specifically formatted satellite radio networks, along with a few publications. If anything, most of the politically leaning media on traditional media outlets (television and radio) leans conservative. For a liberal to actually get a successful nationally syndicated radio show on conventional radio station groups is about as easy as yanking a sword from a boulder.

    I'd like to say I just threw this together tonight, but no. I've had this nearly ready to go just for this occasion...

    And while not statistically very important - it probably hasn't escaped Ansin's detailed notice that WGBX's master antenna location on the "CBS" tower is about 300 feet higher than WHDH's - which gives it a coverage area 10% larger - and that is also where WNEU is headed...

    So, I've just recently found out the name and producer for the TEGNA's new music for the group...and it IS French, btw. It's titled C Clarity, composed by the famed French audio identity creator Michaël Boumendil, and produced/published by the french branding group Sixieme Son. You're welcome.

    It's kinda funny that people, myself included, doubted that Comcast could find any frequency for NBC Boston after Ed Ansin spurred them. And they wound up with four, including a de facto full-market signal coming from Needham and covering the whole market... in 1080i. On a reasonable PSIP frequency of 15. (And that's not counting the pending move of WNEU's tower to the Needham farm.)

    I'm surprised they didn't just go ahead and jointly announce both of those things today, given that we're literally days away from hearing it.

    WJZ and WBAL’s employees may have started creating some diversions to mess the other station up, and throw rocks at each other in the process, since WBAL and WJZ’s studios are literally close to each other.

    According to TVAnswerMan.com, Charter is expanding Spectrum News to Los Angeles, Ohio, Kansas City, Wisconsin and Kentucky. https://tvanswerman.com/2018/01/31/charter-to-launch-news-channels-in-los-angeles-4-other-markets/

    Clearly an attempt to mimic the CBS Evening News look of the period...

    [quote name='Raymie']You sure that's 1998? Wowza! Those graphics had to have been in use for years. Also...KFBB is on the Silvertree client list. @TServo2049 this is one you'll want to see![/QUOTE] This may have been the last newscast with the KFMB Silvertree theme, in this tease the anchor mentions a brand new look coming: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id=yHLBCBKDNaY;m=13;s=8 Also in the video are IDs using different graphics and the Score Productions ABC theme, could this have been the new look mentioned?

    WBAL could easily decide to put strobes on their roof or have their big sign on the roof lit on the back. That would totally mess up all of WJZ’s outback liveshot locations. Edit: How about one of those giant inflatables that light up inside. Just inflate it as they go on air. Also some occasions WBAL has used the front facade of their building which faces I-83/JFX as a billboard/video screen. They hire some company to come out and professionally project images. Maybe they could figure out how to do it out back.

    I can confirm that all NBC Hearst stations are supposed to be getting this look by the time the Olympics get underway.

    Started to see more elements on WBAL. The race is on to see who get new graphics first WBAL or WJZ.

    Wow, FIVE years. Certainly a surprise given the previous year-to-year contacts and the rumors that TNF could be phased out.

    [QUOTE="Myron Falwell, post: 201510, member: 2210"]ABC hasn't bought any stations since the early days of the Clinton Administration, and never has under the auspices of Disney. I can't imagine Disney would want any part of something like this, even with a golden opportunity handed to them on a silver platter. Yeah, Comcast and CBS might, and Fox definetly would, but as @HulkieD has said before (and with more emphasis) ABC [B]doesn't buy stations[/B].[/QUOTE] I agree with you on that. As it was, I was only saying CBS would.

    An opinion piece written to draw an analogy between 1981 and today is just idiotic. No, it's not interesting at all.

    A look at KSTP’s weekend news in 1990. Includes Stan Turner and a young Scott Chapin (as in his first years VO’ing WSVN young).

    Also should be noted they dropped "First Warning Weather" in recent days, opting for WJZ Weather instead. All the character of the station is slowly but surely evaporating

    That music sounds even worse when it’s trying to be serious.
