  1. The KDKA/KYW hybrid thing was a result of CBS forcing their O&Os to come up with redundancy plans after the COVID-19 outbreak at CBS News/WCBS HQ in NY. Of course, it forced other stations to pick up the slack last minute (Boston covering for NY, etc.) I doubt any of these will really ever see the light of day, but who knows?
  2. WTTG and the Fox DC bureau are separate entities. WTTG is in Bethesda, MD, about 8-9 miles from the Fox DC bureau on N Capitol Street (where NBC and others have their DC operations as well.)
  3. CBS had golf coverage on this afternoon...that's why.
  4. And quite notably, not really memorable at any of those stops.
  5. No sarcasm necessary. One of the reasons you’ll see TEGNA stations atop many of the lists and advertising their copious nominations — because many of them can’t hang their hats on their ratings.
  6. Teaming up with Project Veritas and RT'ed by the right-wing "Breaking911" Twitter account? Seems legit.
  7. Speaking of CBSN, looks like the producers at KDKA are pushing to unionize, with CBSN mentioned in the release. As far as I know, they’ve been running a bare bones operation since the launch and the last round of Viacom cuts:
  8. You’re absolutely right. There’s little doubt they were going to go after another anchor in the market, so to string their existing talent along is pretty low.
  9. Imagine being a reporter or working behind the scenes at WUSA. The bosses have now paid money to lure 3 primary anchors away from WTTG and yet, they’re still in 4th place. And still, everyone’s being asked to shoulder the load of corporate pain, taking unpaid furloughs, etc.
  10. Deep sources. And just because someone is joining does meant they are automatIcally staff off the bat. Trust me on this.
  11. FYI. Phil will be freelance reporting. Not anchoring.
