    Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)

    Oh goodness... that would be a loss. Lots of Hampton Roads material in his collection. But yeah, as stated above, his channel shouldn’t be monetized. If he is using it as a source of income, perhaps he should set up a Patreon or something. I’d consider contributing.

    WRDW drops 615's Icon for CBS Enforcer

    That’s odd. Usually the copyright symbol isn’t included next to logos. The registered trademark logo (®) might be included next to some TV station logos, but definitely not in every applicable use. WDBJ’s done this with the “Your Hometown Station” slogan in their logo.

    KTVA newsroom sustains major earthquake damage

    KTVA’s newsroom is a mess.
  5. Do we still have the ability to edit posts? If we do, I can't find it.

    WVEC getting the “Tegna Set-in-a-Box”

    I think it debuts really really soon. Like, maybe today. I’d check out the live stream at 4

    Question about Market/Network Dominance

    The 700 Club airs at 9am on WVBT as of now. I’m not sure when it moved to WVBT, but it’s been very recently. It was on WAVY for years until 2011 when they moved The Hampton Roads Show from WVBT. They didn’t exactly swap the two - 700 Club went to WTKR for a little while until they started Coast Live a couple years ago. Then it was on WGNT for a brief time, which coincidentally began as Pat Robertson’s first TV station, WYAH. Speaking of WGNT and market dominance, it used to be one of the most dominant UPN and CW stations during its O&O ownership in the 2000s. Judge Judy consistently beat WTKR’s 6pm newscast during their infamous “Your NewsChannel 3” days.

    Network # station ID

    I’m certain Bahakel sister WFXB is still “Fox News @ Ten” I’m sure it’s a matter of time before it becomes “News 13 at Ten on FXB FOX TV”

    WTNH new graphics

    That's the thing... they have to make them short because otherwise they'd cut into valuable ad $$$. That's why most stations have ditched the talent opens entirely. Same reason why closes are no more than 5 seconds long now.

    WTNH new graphics

    Nice to see a station still doing talent bumpers... seems like those aren't as commonplace as they once were.

    Those are the "seven cities" that make up Hampton Roads. All of the stations gradually added more cities to their legal ID in the 90s and into the early 2000s for some reason.

    That’s Ignitor open #2 ca. 2000. That one was in between the open I posted above and the one I’m using as my avatar. http://vartv.com/gallery.htm has a few Richmond opens including WTVR from 1993 and 1998.
