  1. The set was fabricated locally - by the same company who did WGN’s set:

  3. from what i've read in chris' blog, it appeared 'the incident' was the beginning of the end for cimino. Granted, he was only reprimanded, but in a brewing situation, that moment was probably used as leverage under disguised of firing for younger/inexpensive talent under disguised of VP of News announcing Cimino leaves for 'new adventures in life' to start the process. Barring any other incidents involved him that are unearthed yet, not only is it usually shady, but perhaps petty. It may not be far off.

  5. I don't know if anybody know this, but KDFW's Steve Eagar hasn't been on the air for a while is because he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Eagar had his surgery yesterday and resting comfortably. Almost 175,000 men get diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and about 30,000 die every year. Black men have A 60% increased risk. Getting a PSA test means early discovery. If you are 45+ and haven’t had a PSA test, get one. It’s a blood test. Easy. No pain. Do it! Please take the time to send Steve wall you well wishes on his Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/pg/steve.eagar.7/

  7. Across between Tegna and Hearst would be nice. How have none of you noticed the resemblance to World News Tonight? That's what I first thought of.

  12. I've toyed around with this logo myself. It's cool, but yeah I can see it having sizing issues (I put it in a circle to show a potential social media avatar) and co-branding it with ABC would be a bit of a nightmare.

  13. KRLR was the established #2 independent by 1989, but still far behind KVVU in the ratings (which I would have still considered an independent at the time). Las Vegas was a smaller market than Tucson in 1989 (which had three independents but lost one that year), surely LV couldn't support four of them. If I recall correctly, The Count's father, who was a gospel singer, founded KFBT (and also helped start WFBT-29 in Minneapolis as a religious/family-themed independent eight years earlier, eventually selling the station and it became KITN then WFTC). I believe KFBT focused on religious programmin

  14. Interesting. KBLR was the third independent. KFBT had signed on a few months before, but I think they were a mostly religious station at the time. KBLR was sold and became Telemundo while KFBT ended up becoming the WB affiliate for a couple years.

  16. Yes, this is terrible news. Nancy was beloved in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas. I remember her from her WAFB days, too...even met her at the SWAC basketball tournament back in the mid-1990s when the tournament was held at the Baton Rouge Centroplex. She was a very down-to-earth person...very nice. My condolences to her husband Glynn Boyd, their kids and their extended family.
