  1. Those images speak volumes. Same desk, same chairs, same lamp, same portrait on the wall over 30-plus years. It speaks to not only what may have been Mr. Ansin's own frugality, but on two more important themes: Simplicity and stability. With all the money he had, he could have easily upgraded his office furniture and design on numerous occasions. It's safe to assume that the phone was one of the few items there to have changed over the years. WSVN and WHDH were lucky to have a guy like that for an owner.

  5. So I was rewatching an old clip from 1987 about Ed Ansin challenging the sale of WTVJ to NBC... and something dawned on me. Note the scenes in which he's interviewed in his office, which was apparently the quietest room at the studio complex. ...it never changed.

  6. Was working on a twitter thread about this, but it got derailed due to some household drama, so I'll type everything here. Ed Ansin, in my mind, deserves to be mentioned in the same breath as Al Primo, Roone Arledge, and Ted Turner. His stations were that revolutionary and influential, and a lot of people don't know it. In my opinion, local news has three "mother formats". The first is Primo's Eyewitness News (specifically the version perfected at WABC New York). The second is the WPVI Action News format. The third was Ansin's "News Station" format pioneered in Miam

  7. The set will debut August 10. And I like the weather desk. Considering the walls behind them are all monitors that will display different things, I think it was important to have a simplified pod.

  8. Having lived in Florida for 16 years of my life and helping my dad fix and install HVAC at some elderly people's homes, I can only imagine what that office smells like with the old furniture in it. Not just Florida but anyone who has had a elderly relative that never modernized or updated their home. Haha!

  9. I don’t know if there is a thread for this, but Gray Television has updated their livestream players into HD for some legacy Raycom Stations. They are no longer pixely like the Raycom live-streams. Also when they go to break it says that you are watching a gray tv station. WMC’s livestream has been re-playing Friday’s live update during the Today show. They used the new livestream for the 3pm newscast yesterday. They also updated WLBT’s

  10. John Forslund is no longer under contract with the Hurricanes because ownership severely lowballed him, so he will be more free to work more of NBC‘s games. He will not be a part of any Fox Sports Carolinas broadcasts. Ends a 20+ year run with the franchise if an agreement can’t be reached.

  11. More than that, actually. See, Rupert made his mark in the UK and his native Australia with gloriously sensational tabloids. Even when he took over the New York Post, he put his stamp on that paper in a hurry ("Headless Body in Topless Bar") and was poised to do the same in Chicago and Boston. Which brings us to the Metromedia Five: WNYW, WTTG, KRIV, KTTV and even WFLD. Outside of shared logo stylings and the "network + channel number" brandings, not much had changed at that core group since the sale beyond a stateside import of A Current Affair with WTTG's Maury Povich

  12. A closer of TVE's Telediario from 24 July 2020 with a picture of Torrespaña, a tower that used to be owned by TVE in the past. Intro, new graphics and theme of América Noticias, that premiered on 27 July 2020. The set is the same they've been using for a couple of months, and despite this relaunch, they never placed the anchordesk in the center of the studio! Since 4 August 1997, the program aired on weekdays at 7pm, but on 19 March 2020 was moved to 6pm and expanded to 2 hours (6pm to 8pm), starting 1 hour earlier than its competitors.

  13. WSVN starting off their 10pm with an announcement of his death and a look back on his life at the station. Both anchors seem really choked up. He was at the station as late as Friday which is why the station seems so shocked about this.

  17. I guess no one should be surprised, but Tim Fleischer is finally retiring after 35 years at Eyewitness News. He is being celebrated at 5 pm tomorrow. I have attached the news article from Pittsburgh when he was hired away. Going to miss Tim. This basically has been his reporting staff for a long time.
