  1. Why in the world are they using any OSI package cuts?

  2. Well, the wait is over: Q13 Fox Seattle has officially changed its on-air graphics and theme music to the ones used by the rest of the Fox Television Stations Group. It debuted at the start of the Q13 Weekend News at 9 p.m. on Joe TV and I am loving it! Also, Q13 Fox is remaining the only Fox O&O to incorporate the Fox name in its general branding, but not the news branding. That I love as well.eral branding, but not the news branding. That I love as well. Oh, and in addition to using Stephen Arnold's "Beyond," Q13 used a main cut from OSI's "Fox Affiliate News Theme" for the "This is Q13

  4. Yea kinda lost on them using the OSI Music along with using the Beyond Music Package. They must've gotten special permission from FOX to bring it back in terms of licensing, or they brought the license outright and can use it whenever they want they just dropped it from FOX Stations. however WTXF so there not getting any shade. My prediction was right they stay Q13 and not have the FOX that's a good thing there known as the FOX Station in that market and with the look and programming viewers visiting out of town will notice. I guess it kind of unique using both OSI Music nd Beyond together I

  5. Station management probably doesn't want to say anything on the record in case they end up in a lawsuit over this. They wouldn't want to make any public statements that can be used against them in court.

  8. DMA37Dude also made this explaination in the description of his video (and this might hold the key in explaining why all of the former Tribune stations regardless of who ultimately bought them) are switching out the Creative West pkg And not only that but all of the former Tribune stations (including KCPQ) are being forced to train its staff how to use and install the new systems regardless of owner. That explains why other former Tribune stations are also switching pkgs.

  11. This soundtrack really IS a treat. Thank you for posting. The same people that did news theme music/promo packages for Gannett/Combined Communications stations like WXIA Atlanta, WLKY Louisville (now with Hearst), KOCO Oklahoma City (also with Hearst) and even here in Denver at KUSA (then KBTV). As far as that WJKW song TV8 The Winners is concerned, I got to hear the VOCAL version of the NewsCenter8 close (at 4:34 in the clip Peters Productions Video Sound Track).

  16. CBS declared Reagan the winner right at 8:00 pm Eastern in 1984, and they were also the first to call it for George H.W. Bush (Missouri put him over the top) at 9:18 Eastern, beating ABC by two minutes! 1996 was of course a cakewalk for Bill Clinton; all the networks -- and the Associated Press -- called it as soon at 9:00 pm hit.

  18. If the polls continue to hold with Team Blue leading by double digits nationwide and five to seven points in battleground states, we'll know by 11 pm eastern. North Carolina, Florida, and Texas will have most of their votes already present and counted election night. Georgia has seen a huge shift to the early voting modality. I expect rather than using the misleading "precincts counted" number, you would compare it either to the number of registered voters in a state, or total votes cast in 2016. If the number of ballots tabulated exceed 100% of votes cast in 2016 and counting has stopped then

  19. I'd expect the obvious states (i.e. California, New York, Oklahoma, West Virginia) to be called right away. But otherwise I think they will wait - and it could be a long wait.

  21. Considering the already high volume of turnout already, I’d have to assume that most news organizations won’t call any race unless the returns are totally inexorable, or if there’s a substantial amount of absentees/mail-ins already counted. Maybe the coverage goes to 2am EDT, but there’s nothing to gain by going beyond that and being on-air in limbo rolling into the following morning... unless something extraordinary happens overnight because 2020. Personally, it might be a case where the races aren’t exactly called for days even if it’s already pretty clear by 2am EDT... not becau

  23. I guarantee that built in the Pinkerton contract with TEGNA is standard language that Pinkerton would do a background check on all security contractors. As that's such, Pinkerton didn't hold up it's end of the deal. I'm sure that makes the contract void and damages owed to KUSA. KUSA isn't culpable if the language of the contract explicitly outlines Pinkerton's responsibility to vet security. That's not KUSA's responsibility. Also, Pinkerton is a subsidiary of Swedish Securitas AB, registered by the SEC as a Corporation. You cannot charge a Corporation with murder.

  24. Here are my thoughts. This whole thing sucks. I didn't know that Denver stations were hiring guards for their crews now – I thought it was something that mostly happened only in the Bay Area market and maybe LA. The Bay Area stations also contract out their guards to another security company. They're usually former cops, and they often work for different stations from one day to the next. They spend a lot on security – last I heard it was in the high six figures every year just for one station. Before the stations were hiring guards, crews were getting mugged left and right, and it

  25. The city of Denver does require a license to act in capacity of a security guard. And KUSA failed to comply with that. I think there's virtually no doubt that Pinkerton will be charged with murder...potentially first degree murder. KUSA (and perhaps even Tegna) could face civil charges (at minimum), because even though Pinkerton supposedly was "contracting" with KUSA, it cannot be denied that KUSA was the de facto employer (or, perhaps more accurately, client) at the time of the murder. And the fact Pinkerton should never have been hired in the first place makes a very compel

  26. I believe Tegna is partly to blame for this because yes they contracted Pinkerton (who deserves more blame than Tegna) to do security but the bottom line is somebody should've done a background check and a thorough investigation into it and Pinkerton knew that and so did Tegna, yet neither one of them did their job and the end result is we have somebody dead because nobody wanted to do their due dilligence.

  27. Exactly. Let's be clear, this was a way for 9News, who, like other outlets has had journalists being physically and verbally attacked, to protect their own. You can see the fear in the journalists eyes when you watch live coverage. I'm endlessly thankful for the risk they are putting themselves in and appreciate the hard work in a challenging time in Denver and our country. They know that they have my admiration.

  28. ABC 7 Denver, I totally with you on this, it's not their fault. However i did see some stuff earlier today on twitter & facebook of folks calling on NBC & NBC NEWS to drop it's affiliation with KUSA, which is ridiculous. Where would NBC go if that were to somehow happen? (KDEN? Highly unlikely, they have a bad ota signal in Denver.)

  29. Oy vey. It's like you people don't read the news, which is ironic and alarming. This isn't TEGNA's fault. They contracted Pinkerton who was responsible for vetting their own subcontractors. Pinkerton didn't do it's due diligence. Don't blame TEGNA.

  30. Absolutely. And there are people on Twitter that are calling for the FCC to pull KUSA's license over this. All I'm going to say is buckle up it's going to be a long, bumpy ride ahead for the folks at Tegna's headquarters and in particular, KUSA

  32. Her season 2 premiere did pretty well actually, especially with the highly-anticipated interview with Andrew Gillum. Together with the interview she had with Stassi Schroeder, Tamron's demonstrated she's very capable of making headlines with her show when she strikes while the iron is hot. Disney's definitely trying to ride on that bounce her show's been getting (and also trying to treat her well -- hinthintNBC) so I think there's probably a fair bit of life in her show for a few more years, barring doing something that will get her cancelled. And Emmys also don't mean much to most, but she di

  39. And may go WNBC by keeping the "Q13 News" branding instead of reverting its newscast title, making Q13 the only Fox O&O to have the Fox name in general branding only. After all, the Q13 branding has been well-known for nearly four decades. If Fox decides to change Q13's news branding to "Q13 Fox Seattle News" in addition to adding the "Seattle" part to the general branding, then that is fine by me.

  43. And the "new" Q13 logo is on its website as well. Again, I am totally cool on whether or not Q13 would be the only Fox O&O where only the general branding includes the Fox name in the way that WNBC 4 in New York is the only NBC O&O where the NBC name is in the general branding alone.

  47. I watched this a few weeks ago. VERY VERY interesting. I never realized all of the pieces of UPN. I know, as a black community, we watched UPN all the time, and was kind of distraught when the network disappeared. I always thought UPN was consistently the 6th place network, but apparently, it traded spots with WB (and sometimes FOX). Make sure if you watch this, you block out like a good hour and some change to watch! Hopefully he will do the WB at some point.
