  1. CBS News did a Special Report with full coverage of the hearing. It was an "optional" special report for local affiliates. Some stations aired the coverage, some stuck with regular programming. If your local CBS station did not run the special report, I'd suggest your gripe is with them, not the network.

  2. When Tamron’s show was originally picked up, it was by the ABC O&O group, including WLS. Because they could not find room on the schedule, it was sublicensed to WCIU. So I believe WLS was able to get it back when the opportunity presented itself. No way Live with Kelly and Ryan is going anywhere. It used to air on WGN and when the opportunity presented itself WLS grabbed it. I feel like WLS over the years has attempted to match the schedule of it’s sister stations, and it’s basically achieved that now.

  3. Technically the show is currently hosted by Andrew Ordon (one of that former team), but it'll still go on because the spon-con parts of the show make it profitable even as its only getting empty waiting rooms or insomniacs as its main audience. They also got free tax money from the state to make the 'move' to Connecticut even though the current setup could be done pretty much anywhere with four walls and a green screen in the world.

  5. CBS News has failed to run the House Select Committee hearing of the Jan 6 Capitol Riot. ABC News has it on. CBS News has turned into the rah rah network for happy people attempting to be anchors. Norah is terrible and Susan Zirinsky has turned it into a circus. CBS reporters create great stories but the network is held together by cheap glue. Shame on you CBS News for not running the hearing. I guess the Price is Right is what the country needs right now.

  7. I haven’t been able to understand why Nexstar and NewsNation didn’t just launch as an OTT streaming channel. NewsNation truly is a good product - the tv audience just doesn’t exist. Nexstar’s internal catchphrases is “digital first” - yet they did the opposite here. When every other media company is pouring money, people, and effort into streaming vs linear tv - they did the opposite. I would’ve loved to see this product as a hybrid of NN, local news, and the old HLN. Presented in a Peacock type format. You could have your main “channel” that streams NewsNation content and local news. So NN would be built around local news shows. Then have another “channel” that is the headlines channel that is basically the same news every 30 minutes like HLN used to do - updated every two hours. Users could also watch a “channel” that is just a constant weather upstate - think looping SD, 7-day forecast, etc.

  8. I don’t understand the backwards thinking. NN has a TON more users on digital versus on TV. That’s been previously reported. That’s why they push out app alerts like crazy to try to push people to the Cable Channel (yawn). But it’s the same with local news. More people have their apps downloaded. Stop looking at this backwards. Stop promoting a newscast in a newscast to switch to another channel when the end user is just not going to. It’s only checking a checkmark for Perry. If Perry understood audience sizes he would make every local station app push to the new programming on NN and have a live stream embedded in apps just like CBSN or NBC NEWS NOW. Data. Science. Work smarter. Not harder.

  10. The 4pm show had a laundry list of credited contributors back in the 80s, covering entertainment, media/TV, health, finances, quirky characters, local heros, and even senior affairs. Sylvia Perez's HealthBeat reports lasted til her 2013 firing. Judy Hsu shifted off the morning news in September 2016, serving as a feature anchor for almost 3 months, in the lead-up to Linda Yu's retirement. No one serves in a role like Alicia on any WLS newscasts, but they don't have an afternoon traffic reporter, either.

  11. On the subject of small TV stations, here's a look at a station described as "America's smallest and lowest-rated" -- including its three-person news department -- from about 40 years ago:

  12. The boat in the logo dates back to 1952, which is impressive; but given how reduced it has been in the previous logo, how many people will really notice? Of those who notice, will the average viewer care? I'm a traditionalist and think it was dumb to drop something that has been a part of the station longer than any person at the station, but this isn't a "WPVI changing the theme music" moment in the least, unfortunately. It would be interesting to see if there was a reason behind the change?

  15. It does make this logo a tad more generic (without the steamboat), but it's a nice refresh (and throwback) for a station that has seen their ratings tank in favor of WREG in recent years. The 5, and the other Bert Ellis stations at the time were heavily inspired by WSB in Atlanta. It was a nice change back then when Scripps sold the station to Ellis, as their WMC logo at the time was less memorable than the "5" they had before. Perhaps the steamboat met it's demise due to current trends. Didn't they use to play "Dixie" after the whistle in old IDs?
