    I'm fucking heartbroken to pass this along, but longtime WUSA anchor/reporter Bruce Johnson has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma.... Bruce will be taking an indefinite LoA from the anchor desk to battle this. http://www.wusa9.com/article/news/local/wusa9-anchor-bruce-johnson-diagnosed-with-cancer/65-546664972

    They are and the FCC approved the application. Guessing what they will do is risky, but they won't need the WGBX sharing once WNEU moves to Needham - and probably will move the 15-1 and 15-2 numbering from WGBX to WNEU.

    When KFMB updates it's graphics, do you think the ticker will go away?

    Let's put it this way, WFAA doesn't know what their brand is. WFAA News, News 8, Channel 8 News. News 8 Daybreak or #IAmUpWithDaybreak?

    Trump can't block the merger himself. Judge Leon from the D.C. Circuit has the final say in the case. Here's what Giuliani said acc. to CNN.

    justin2kx said it the shoutbox, but I feel it's worth mentioning here, too; Rudy Guiliani says that Trump blocked the merger.

    Yeah, you think. Years into the future it'll be nothing more than a carbon based version of KRON.

    Gateway Computer co-founder Norm Waitt never sold his interest in the license of KMEG Sioux City once operating control transferred from Titan to Sinclair, and he's been in a number of business ventures which aren't necessarily right-wing. However, we've seen the Meyer family of KFMB fame cash out of broadcasting, so don't be surprised if the McKinnons finally do the same (especially after selling their Texas stations several years back).

    I LOVE WFAA's new look. I know people don't like it, but I think it is a nice refreshing change. I like the play buttons all over the set, looks cool.

    It's only the last few seconds, but we finally have an idea of what the lost Reaching Out To You image campaign sounded like: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=id=TpXJqVPzNWA;m=16;s=29

    I thought 20th holds rights for that as well, but you may be right about that.

    Yeah, the last thing they would want to do with KSWB is make it the subject of sexual innuendos.

    Some talent promos/station are in the wild now. I wish I could grab them but it’s placed between different shows and a second or two would get cut off a five second station ID. This one was for Mark Viviano and WJZ Sports. It’s the typical talent shot but the background was blue with the lower left corner of the CBS Eye in the upper left corner and part of the bottom left eye in the botttom right. The same for Mary Bubala and Vic Carter for the 4pm and the eye position changed between the two.

    Are there any counties in the NYC DMA that leans towards the Republicans? If so, then WPIX might have a shot, if it can somehow get them to a 0.4 rating.

    PIX 11 already does not have great ratings in most dayparts, this will cause even more decline. They can air their Epsteyn/Terrorism Desk/Hyland crap but the question will be - is anyone in NY watching?

    Praise the lord there is no "Cap" for junk tv. I'm old enough to remember when they didn't glue down the food and dishes during the Springer "Holiday" shows.. . What kind of punk-ass throws Jello anyway?

    WKRG's logo has evolved a little over the years since the current variant was introduced... The top logos were the original ones, with the .com being added a few years later. The last one is the MGFX variant, which is much more 3D. The bottom ones are the JCB versions...the main difference is with the placement of the CBS "eye" and variants of fonts and shading. This time, it's more of a 3D look with different fonts, and the 5 and CBS being the same colors I added the blue behind the 2nd logo to prove my point on how it shows up on a dark vs. a light background. I like the shading on the "blue" version and wish it was more pronounced on the white version.

    Washington DC is losing a lot of great legendary broadcasters. I remember we lost Brenner, Michael, Solly, Robinson, and recently last year we lost Vance. I hope and pray for Bruce's recovery and praying for him and for his family to be more than 100% better and stronger. Please, send your get well wishes and prayers to Bruce if you can. https://www.facebook.com/OffScripton9/

    Yes, for two reasons: 1) the Boris Epysteyn and "terrorist alert freakout" must-runs and mandated "dangerous threat to our democracy" promos, which they are totally oblivious to any criticism whatsoever 2) they own the rights to an advanced broadcast standard of HDTV and want to use their stations as "test markets"

    http://www.tvnewscheck.com/article/113165/suddenly-time-is-of-essence-for-sinclairtrib http://www.tvnewscheck.com/article/113162/sinclair-to-reach-58-of-tvhhs-or-is-it-66 Here are my 5 big takeaways from Harry Jessell's 2 part column on Sinclair-Tribune's sale of 23 TV Stations: 1. Sinclair is telling the FCC that its coverage after spinoffs from its merger with Tribune will be just 58.7%.this is with the UHF Discount, without it Sinclair post-Tribune would have a total reach of 66.3% of TV Homes, that's a full 2/3rds of this country that Sinclair would have control over local news. 2. The spinoff deals with Soo Kim and Meredith show that it has given up on trying to persuade the Justice Department that it can own two top-four stations in markets where it would have had such overlaps. Not only that but also the fact that they gave up on trying to own 2 of the top four stations in every market (with the exception of Indianapolis) proves that the Trump DOJ is standing firm to one owner owning 2 top four stations despite Ajit Pai relaxating the top four prohibition rule in November by not allowing Sinclair to do so. 3. The group is claiming 58% because it is not counting stations in three big markets — WGN Chicago, KDAF Dallas, KIAH Houston — that it is spinning off to closely affiliated companies. Without those markets and the discount in effect, Sinclair’s reach will be just 37.39%, safely below the 39% cap. That's the only reason why the DOJ is sastified with Sinclair's latest divestment plan if WGN/KDAF/KIAH counted towards the cap the DOJ would've ordered at least KDAF/KIAH to go to an unaffiliated 3rd party with Sinclair acquiring WGN outright but because of the fact that they didn't this latest divestment plan will pass regulatory muster. 4. But in the case of Dallas and Houston, I’m told, Sinclair has put additional distance between itself and Cunningham as it has in a couple of small markets to appease the regulators. The finances of the stations will be kept separate from Sinclair’s and Sinclair is pledging to stay completely out of their operations. It will, however, have an option to buy the stations should the FCC ever ease the rules to allow it. This technically shouldn't be allowed to happen but it will because it's Sinclair we're talking about here and they like to bend the rules which is a segway to my last takeaway. 5. As noted in the article that didn't get mentioned on takeaway #4 is the fact that Sinclair has distanced themselves from Cunningham and WGN, L.L.C with regards to WGN/KDAF/KIAH. Again these are all shell companies and in the real world would've counted towards the cap, but of course it's Sinclair and everything they do in terms of how they bend the rules does not surprise myself or anyone else in here anymore.

    WDSU is moving The Real to 11:00 a.m., dropping Maury off its schedule for the first time since 1991 (Having Maury on an NBC affiliate is the rarest of the rare.)
