  1. I'm not gonna lie, it's pretty annoying that we've gotten to the point where our national anthem has become a hot-button political issue. If you like having it played on TV, you're a fascist, and if you don't, you're a communist. There's no pleasing anyone anymore, is there?

  2. The current EWN music is officially 20 years old and still sounds as good as new! Here is what WABC-TV looked like back in late August / early September of 1999 when it switched over to the current cuts of Gari’s “Eyewitness News” and, briefly, became “ABC7 Eyewitness News”. 5pm News short open, talent open, bumper: https://youtu.be/VMjL2FswYeU “Coming Up” promo (from a few months later in May 2000): https://youtu.be/muESKwhgafk

  3. It's what kind of ticks me off about this forum. If you don't like Trump or whatever, that's a valid thought, I think a lot of people don't really like him. But a lot of people here seem to dislike the idea of anything like playing the national anthem, because of whatever reason it might be. I don't think playing the SSB is anywhere near nationalism, and it really bugs me that people think this way, that somehow being proud of where you live is a bad thing.

  6. I know that being an atheist in some quarters is considered enlightened but the human body is a complicated organism containing specific parts that do specific jobs. Kind of hard to believe that your eyes, ears, nose, circulatory system, digestive system, brain and self-repair properties just kind of happened on their own. I don't know if you realize this, but being an atheist is like saying that if you throw a bunch of sand (glass), some unrefined petroleum (plastic) and chunks of metal ore (copper, gold) at a wall enough times, it would randomly arrange itself into an iPhone, complete with

  10. Frankly, I'm not sure when WBBM hit rock bottom, but the Johnson/State duo immediately preceded their most successful period in a quarter century. Anne slowly got demoted off newscasts until Rob was going solo all evening. Meanwhile, CBS primetime was blowing up, and WMAQ was dealing with the tandem troubles of a rocky 10pm anchor change & The Jay Leno Show. WBBM became an unchallenged #2 for most of the 2009-10 season. In addition to a new midday anchor team (Porterfield/Tellez), they used this momentum to hire Kate Sullivan, reinstate a normal morning news, and reunite Bill and Walter. A

  11. You weren't around in the '80s when few broadcast stations were 24/7 and nearly every stations played the anthem at sign-on and sign-off, were you?

  12. Unlike others who seem to hate living in this country, I personally think that playing the national anthem is a welcome sight on television. We should be proud for the freedoms that we have living in the United States of America, and we shouldn't be afraid to show it for a few moments during the broadcast day. I doubt those of you who are opposed to this will even be watching television during the time the anthem plays. We'll see if any other broadcasters follow suit!

  13. I have no trouble with the national anthem being played. It's the motives behind it that I question. "Loyalty to country ALWAYS. Loyalty to government, when it deserves it." – Mark Twain -- Matt P.S. Guess who also does the national anthem … yup, North Korea. Good holiday weekend to you all.

  16. We've seen this type of thing done at other stations, a comedian's daily take on the news. I scoff at those, as those personalities are serving as 'formal' anchors on existing newscasts. No one has referred to this is a newscast, and it's not replacing a current newscast. That makes a difference, to me.

  18. In Montgomery, Alabama, the mayor's office is up for grabs after the longtime mayor decided not to run for re-election. They just had a runoff, and one of the finalists is David Woods, owner of WCOV Fox 20. He is the son of Charles Woods, who also dabbled in politics and owned WTVY in Dothan until 2000. Being a station owner, that frees him from the conflict of interest that many companies have when someone runs for office, but if he wins, the station may have to be put in a trust or sold. At least they contract their news out to Bahakel's WAKA/WNCF so that's out of the way (the

  21. Today is the last edition of the Youngstown Vindicator. Fortunately, Youngstown will still have a daily newspaper since the Tribune-Chronicle in nearby Warren has purchased the distribution and brand assets and will produce a replacement newspaper under the Vindicator brand. Unfortunately, many of the Vindicator employees will lose their jobs and only a select few will continue on with the new owners. Now that the Brown family is reduced to WFMJ, it will be seen if they end up selling out. Tegna cashed in on Dispatch and WBNS/WTHR (while Gatehouse got the newspaper),

  22. Jamie Simpson, the Chief Meteorologist at WKEF/WRGT Dayton who was made famous for during an EF 4 tornado hitting the Dayton area telling viewers complaining about missing The Bachelorette due to storm coverage “I’m done with you people” was arrested this morning for OVI (Ohio’s term for DUI, DWI aka drunk driving). www.whio.com/news/crime--law/meteorologist-arrested-for-ovi-miamisburg/RdipSddDy1cKHJ3YzawlJK/amp.html Here’s the kicker though, the ND from WKEF/WRGT told the other Dayton media outlets that he was already unemployed before the incident occurred this mor
