  1. Looks like CBS2 just got a new temporary studio, thanks to YES Network In Stamford, CT.

  2. I'm very pleased CBS was able to find a temporary home for WCBS till the CBS Broadcast Center can safely reopen. Yes Network set looks very nice I must say.

  3. The KCBS anchor who was there this morning is Hermela Aregawi. This isn't normal times, we're in a state of emergency. May I remind you the entire CBS Broadcast Center is closed meaning the CBS network is controlled by LA, CBS News is controlled by DC & LA, and all shows productions (local, network, and syndicated) is stalled in that building. "In times like these, we need each other. We must bond together in spirit and in service."

  4. Lots of "if only's" which won't help the current situation.. I also suspect the issue may be more than studio space since the building itself is closed down. The question is what are the current options CBS has, and what they will do short term, and perhaps long term. At the end of the day, does the typical viewer get the local information they need, including local weather and what little sports news there is? That is CBS's primary objective.

  6. It was first reported that Vince had enough money for the league to last at least two seasons. COVID-19 just abruptly ended the inaugural season.

  8. I doubt TBN's goal here is to gain more .1's, but it wouldn't surprise me to see TBN get offered on these stations as a .2-whatever in the unlikely event this actually happens. You want to talk about cap space and shell companies? TBN is already at 35% and directly operates a shell company (Community Educational Television) to get around the cap. I doubt they're going to end up as the "owner", Najafi would simply add the Tegna brand to their, uh, diversified portfolio and TBN would get the rights to a subchannel or two in exchange for financing part of the purchase.

  9. I can see it now....taking the C-Clarity and adding some tambourines, a church organ and a gospel choir.... Ok...I'll shut up now.

  10. And in France, France 2 and Franceinfo TV aired a joint morning program from Franceinfo's studios:

  11. Most likely, but it varies by station. I know some companies have done little so far. Gray has been especially aggressive in its limitations.

  12. They would be essential employees, but I think only the key staff (i.e. anchors, news directors) would have access.

  14. Meanwhile, here I am noticing the fact that CBS used to own the Yankees...a family reunion of sorts!

  15. So as part of the deal, did YES part owner Sinclair demand CBS2 run any of their must runs?

  17. The BBC has combined its London and its South East regional updates in the mornings because of Covid-19:

  18. I'd be more curious about health insurance and whether or not they'd refuse to cover some things because it goes against their morals.

  19. Paul and Jan Crouch (Matt’s parents who started up TBN) would’ve rolled in their graves!

  20. Yep. It originally came from the Sourh Carolina Dem Debate, then went to D.C. for the Evening News and Super Tuesday I coverage. That desk sure is going places.

  22. If the WABC fire had damaged more than they expected, Kenny Plotnik said that morning broadcast would've been done on the sidewalk. Kudos to WCBS for doing it.

  23. WKYC, kinda sorta practicing social distancing... 5pm, not so much 6pm, a little better 7pm, that’s more like it. (With a pregnant co-anchor and leukemia survivor.)

  24. Then independent KBMA-TV (Now NBC affilate KSHB-TV.) Ch. 41, Kansas City, MO "Someone You Can Turn To" promo from 1979. What kind of equipment was being used here?

  25. TVN's 24 Horas got a new intro and music last week (and the music was based from the theme from 2005-2015)

  26. I think the reality is that this is the plan in action. As long as WCBS is able to get something out to their audience, they don't care how its done. Even if that relies on a team 3000 miles away.

  29. In this episode of As the Tegna Bidding War Turns, Trinity Broadcasting and Najafi, a Phoenix investment firm, are together offering $20/share. Nothing is said in the article about why TBN's parent is interested, unless they want to flip some of the stations to TBN in a mid-90s style Fox-New World type of deal. https://www.bizjournals.com/houston/news/2020/03/18/texas-broadcaster-teams-up-with-investment-firm-to.html
