  1. Maybe I'm just over every set now being a video wall, but there's something about the simplicity and purity of that blue newsroom that feels refreshing.

  2. WJRT is a good station for Byron Allen to get, especially since WJRT can be seen in parts of the Detroit market. If Adell ever sells WADL, it may be a good Allen target as well.

  3. Former WJZY sportscaster Josh Sims has found work. Congratulations Josh! They are lucky to have you! I thought he might end up replacing Ken Rodriguez at WAGA but this is even better.

  4. That is why in the shut down of NBCSN, I would suggest that CNBC, not USA, become the primary home for sports for NBCUniversal, and use USA for overflow. Most of NBC's live sporting events occur after 5:00 anyway, and it will prevent CNBC from being nothing but informercials during the weekend. FNN knew that their market was niche, that is why they set up a sports channel sharing the same space after market close.

  5. That’s odd. Honestly with stories of people getting seriously ill with the delta variant I would be hesitant about eating indoors right now. Makes sense and with the delta variant that may become more common.

  6. The problem for CNBC since the FNN merger days is there is no CNBC audience after 4:10 p.m. on weekdays. It's a channel that like children's channels, has a limited timeslot that everyone tunes out of after the business day ends. If they would have been intelligent long ago they could've just had CNBC Europe and Asia after America's business day is done, but...we're America and the rest of the world doesn't exist unless you pay $30/month or $10/month for those channels or CNBC World. Outside sports events, the CNBC channel space is effectively done at the end of the business day. F

  7. Maybe CNBC'S audience just isn't used to more hard news, that's maybe why they don't care for him.

  8. I kinda viewed his show on CNBC as just a holding ground until they could find a spot for him on MSNBC.

  9. It seems that the CNBC audience just rejected Shep. Hard to see how this improves, even if you change the schedule.

  10. Shep's show seems to be struggling really bad. I know the Daily Beast is a tabloid, but TVnewser and Brian Stelter also picked up on this. One of the options is to possibly move Mad Money out of its longtime 6:00 slot. I think putting him on CNBC was a mistake. Most people know CNBC as a business/financial news channel and not for hard news. I like his show but it's a trainwreck going from to Cramer to Smith and then to Shark Tank. Put him on MSNBC in a daytime slot and I think he might get a bigger audience. There's a few personalities there that could be m

  11. WLS is running a version of it, too, and it's really weird. They promote Jeopardy! at 3:30, Eyewitness News at 5, and WNT at 5:30, completely skipping over the juggernaut 4pm news. That stacked rundown at the end of the spot looks ridiculous, making it seem like J! is 90 minutes, which any sane person knows isn't true.

  12. Well first it was WTAE, and now WPXI will launch a 4pm newscast coming up in September with Susan Koeppen anchoring. https://www.wpxi.com/news/top-stories/channel-11-news-launch-4-pm-newscast-this-fall/

  13. UPDATE: Just read on the Nexstar channel on Discord that the new set/studio is coming in September. It’s likely coming with a total rebrand, and they have added staff. They could even be adding on to the building. They are also planning on more newscasts. So my guess is that GDC will be expanded into the 9-10am hour and an 11pm news will be added, with Charlotte Sports Live moving to 11:30. I would expect to see the Nexstar graphics in September. Who knows, they might even change the name of the morning news.
