    Of course, the entire "extended basic" lineup of channels we've come to know have all morphed from their intended niches into a feast or famine of lowest-common-denominator content. Some more than others (like Court TV morphing into truTV) and whatever the heck Viacom did to VH1 and MTV. At least CNBC sticks to their roots during business hours. If they really wanted to go hardcore, simply combine the business programming from both sides of the globe, since CNBC World is reruns during the day in our neck of the woods, the markets are open while we're all asleep. It's going to take a lot for the "news" networks to ever shift their focus. Fox News threw down the gauntlet against the "liberal" media, and when it became apparent through the strong opinions of their hosts, MSNBC acted accordingly and went in the other direction. CNN on the other hand, went off the deep end when some NBC reject who almost drove them into the ground took the helm, and all we heard about were lost planes and his BFF who used to host a show that "fired" people. As for moderating, I don't think the networks are coming closer to the center, there are fringes that are going even further in opposite directions like OAN and TYT. Not even a global pandemic, or solid facts will bring us together at this point. It's a start to try and do a straight newscast, but it's an uphill battle the way things are going and headed.

    The last thing I want networks to consider is more bias propaganda. There should be less, not more. We got enough mediums lying around for stuff like that

    Based off of the success of WNT I definitely think the next anchor change for any of the newscasts will trend much younger than 50-60.

    I don't have a problem with the pandemic coverage as its big everywhere. I was talking about the constant Trump coverage beforehand and Malaysian Airlines flight 370, which they talked for days on end 6 years ago.

    I always say the same thing myself. We have over 200 countries in this world and CNN just feels the need to focus on the same story or person for a long time. All the other big stories are on CNN International, which unfortunately, isn't easily available in the U.S.

    Here’s his interview from this morning previewing the new show. (The interview took place right as today’s Supreme Court decisions came down, which is what the cut in the middle is and why he’s talking about it so much. In a way he’s already filling his role as breaking news anchor.)

    Just saw Shep’s interview on CNBC previewing the show. He said that there’s not going to be any opinion from him, just the news. Good to hear, we need less opinion in prime time, not more. Also I miss his wit, so I’m glad he’s back. I think this is different from Megyn. She disrupted Today's Take which was a show that worked. Shep isn’t disrupting much, just an hour of Shark Tank which already airs all night. I don’t think they’ll be going conservative for all of prime time. That field is already dominated by FNC, and their entertainment shows are doing relatively well.

    OK, Q13 Fox updated its website. Unclear on when its new on-air graphics and music would debut. Yes, the Fox Corporation is keeping the Q13 branding alive and well. I am cool with whether or not Fox would revert the station's newscast title from Q13 News to Q13 Fox News. Whether KZJO would be rebranded as Q13 Plus, that is unclear as well. https://www.q13fox.com/

    Just about eighteen months after Tegna deal was completed, KWES debuted their brand new set last night.

    Sometimes I forget HLN is still on the air. If CNN insists on keeping two channels, I'd rather see CNN America on one and CNN International on the other.

    I too like that CNBC has had the same formula for years. I also like that CNBC has had much of the same staff for years too, compared to CNN or MSNBC or even FOX News. All three had a different on-air presentation and different on-air staff 15 years ago, compared to today. CNBC has had the same announcer for years and has not changed even one bit of their logo for over 20 years now. I know some will say CNBC declined when Mark Haines passed away 9 years ago, but I think he was near retirement anyway. I remember when they used to run business documentaries at night as opposed to more traditional reality programming.

    As Newsjunkie 24 said, I'm referring to Trump and yes MH-370 as well. COVID is justifiable.

    The problem is that this is the largest story of our lifetimes. Its effects are being felt universally. There are other stories, yes. But no one event has had this much global reach. Not even world wars, in many ways.

    An interesting takeaway I have from this quote: Allen has big and bold visions for building his broadcasting empire and quite frankly I don't think he's nuts when he said he wants to own CNN. I think he truly wants to own CNN. And not just CNN he probably wants to build a sports empire too I'll save the rest for the speculation thread I think this is worthy of a discussion over there.

    One has to wonder if NBC is thinking ahead once again, could Shepard Smith be the next heir to the throne after Lester Holt? If things get normal again after this year (when pigs fly), maybe journalism could be making a comeback. It worked for CBS when Katie Couric left and they went to the "original reporting" era with Scott Pelley. But the "ol' Boys Club" being unraveled (finally) put that back into turmoil again.

    'The News with Shepard Smith" ... Remind you of something? "The News with Brian Williams" ... and that started on CNBC as well if my memory serves me right. Always loved that theme the show had. If they were smart, they would keep the theme for Shepard and update the look. Good pick CNBC. -- Matt

    No matter your politics, imagine seeing one subject dominate a 24/7 News Network day in and day out. Are there not hundreds of countries in the world from which we can gather interesting stories to air on a Non-Stop News Network ( this goes for Fox and MSNBC as well). Its sad how far modern tv news has spiraled.

    ??? What comeback? It was never dropped! KCPQ was always known as "Q13 Fox" for the longest time, so this name change is hardly going to be noticed by anyone.

    If Greta was placed on CNBC and not MSNBC I bet she would still be there today. I get the feeling CNBC will morph more in primetime to opinion but keep the popular shows as the profit, Americans greed shark tank etc to 10pm and weekends.

    Not a temp set. That’s how the set looked when it debuted in 1996 or 1997. The temp set used before the 2004 set, if I remember correctly, actually had the blue panels removed.

    CNBC is such a different audience than the Today Show. He'll be fine. They probably learned from mistakes made with Megyn and Greta and realized that it would be safer to put him somewhere like CNBC than to thrust him onto MSNBC or the network.

    Also, while Fox News performs well in the ratings with right-wing pundits, it's increasingly becoming less profitable to run conservative commentary shows because of the toxicity tied to their content. Once Fox News decided to go down the rabbit hole of using racism as a propaganda and fear tactic, they've been losing sponsors left and right for their prime time shows. The only reason why they haven't changed course is because of the audience they're able to pull. For some reason though, Fox is not valuing revenue and trying to balance it with the audience: instead of being seen as necessary equals, audience trumps revenue for them. When any other network realizes its programming is unprofitable, they would dump the content that's not working in favor of something else. OANN likely is being passed by major advertisers for the same reason as well as for the bad reputation it gets for commentary that is absent logic and reason, to put it nicely. For CNBC to go down that route would end up resulting in the network not being able to, as one of its slogans says, "Profit from It" down the line.

    I still think a full changeover to the TEGNA look is going to happen soon, but the real question is when? Right now, it's just a mess.

    It's no surprise that since Sinclair has taken over WOAI, that it has gotten preferential treatment over KABB. When the graphics do launch, you'll notice that the standard package would have indeed looked better on KABB given that the FOX 29 logo already fits the color scheme. Want to guess the color scheme for the hybrid package? Look no further than the color scheme on WOAI's logo.

    Too bad Q13 has to switch to new graphics. IMHO, the current Trib graphics are one of the best-looking graphics packages.

    Thank you Jeff Zucker for that bungle-job that put him back on the Tonight Show for another 4 years, that and that other show that fired people.... But it just goes to show you what the cycle of executives was between the networks, how Roger Ailes cut his teeth at CNBC and America's Talking, which made way for MSNBC and his move to Fox News. And how Jeff Zucker failed upwards at NBCUniversal and has been tanking CNN for almost 6 years now.

    CNBC already runs the European version of Street Signs at 4 in the morning, so why not just run the international business shows from 7 or 8 at night to 4 in the morning?

    could not believe when I was watching scene in yesterday and the news anchor called Trump a dictator what a joke that's why I hate seeing and anymore all I do is talk crap about Trump I am not a trump supporter I just can't stand seeing and being so one-sided they are the joke

    Bad idea. The last thing we need is another partisan soapbox taking up air time. While it may be an attempt to balance out MSNBC, it's way too late to try and rectify that. And if it means the end of American Greed, I'm really going to be pissed.

    CNN is still on television, color me shocked! First time tuning to their channel in the past little while, and it's so refreshing to see such objective, non-biased reporting in their chyrons. (rolls eyes) Doesn't matter what your politics are, if you care anything about this business, you should realize how bad this looks towards the profession. Report without bias first, ask questions later, and share opinions late at night.

    I’m more disappointed that they’re reverting back to “Q13 Fox”. I know when KTVU rebranded from “KTVU Channel 2” to “Fox 2”, everybody was up in arms in San Francisco, so they revised it to “KTVU Fox 2”. Let’s see how Seattle will react to “Q13 Fox” making a comeback.
