  1. If this were the Nexstar of old, you would've seen something like CarolinasHomepage.com, CharlottesHomepage.com, and the like. These days, they have mostly settled on giving their station websites more normal domain names than ridiculous ones. IMHO, the MyFox domain names need to die, as they're an old relic from the Fox O&O/MySpace days.

  2. Ummm you do realize you’re talking about their air time right? They’re in the building longer than that prepping and such..

  3. They are usually there 1-2 hours before air in addition to what you have there... so their days are rather long as is... some of them may enjoy their jobs so much that they don’t mind working a lot. The old saying about finding a job you love and it not really feeling like work....

  4. In all likelihood, WJZY's URL will stay the same...at least for the foreseeable future.

  5. I doubt that will happen. Hoda and Savannah have really good chemistry and it's be beyond dumb for NBC to take Lester off of Nightly News when they are in the middle of a close ratings battle with WNT.

  6. Just a Denver update. I head the new SAM package signature on KMGH during the 10p. We'll likely be getting the new graphics soon.

  7. Let me say this when I made the post I started with. I didn't mean to insinuate they only worked 8 1/2 hours on air and in between. I know that they commonly have long commutes in and also do lots of prep work. I just feel like Ken & Shirleen shouldn't have to spend 8 1/2 hours on broadcasts (and in between stuff) unless it's stipulated. I legitimately apologize.

  8. We've already seen KXTV's coverage of Loma Prieta as it started to unfold—now we have a full, 45-minute (!) 11pm show from that night, and it's a treat with its own special open. Not the only long KXTV aircheck we got in the last week: five and a half minutes of coverage of the Sun Valley Mall plane crash in Concord from 1985. At the time, the station was still using the Tuesday "Spirit of California" theme:

  9. It is a bit strange but it’s a timing preference on WABC’s part. They want a quick transition to the 5pm news to retain the 4pm audience, so they dropped the 5pm talent open years ago (they brought it back briefly during Diana’s last week anchoring). At 11, they want to retain as many primetime viewers as possible so they get right to the news. The 6pm is still seen as the signature newscast of record for the day, so it gets a talent open and “fresh start” rather than the quick transition.

  10. Why would Nexstar need to have WJZY's URL address as myfox46.com? Doesn't seem like something Nexstar would do, especially nowadays.

  11. Yeah I suspect anyone not on board by the Super Bowl will be on that night.

  13. ABC must be having some kind of master control issue, because this has been happening sometimes on WLS, lately. That's the logo that flashes during the final few seconds of network promos, but it appears that someone or something is failing to turn it off, so it just keeps blinking.

  15. The final half-hour of CLTV's existence has started. By the time many of you will read this, the channel will be no more.

  16. You’re misunderstanding, which seems to be a theme for you. I asked a question about why it doesn’t make sense for Bill to hand off the 6 pm to David so that he isn’t anchoring a 1.5 hour show. And you’re response was to lecture the entire forum on the intricacies of channel 7’s off camera schedules and build sympathy for “long work days.” You’re tone and frustration is stemmed from a suggestion that Shirleen and Ken could anchor the mornings and noon newscasts to allow for greater parity in their evening news schedules? I’m in the craphole known as NYC more often than I’d ever like to be so n
