  1. A pair of morning newscasts from Louisiana adopt local flavor for interesting titles. KLFY/Lafayette's Passe Partout ...and KALB/Alexandria's Jambalaya
  2. From the WAVY archive... a 1981 report on the FCC filing for channel 43... 12 years before WVBT hit the air.
  3. Debi Chard is retiring after nearly 43 years at WCSC. http://www.live5news.com/2019/03/14/debi-chard-announces-retirement-live-news-after-almost-years/ Her last broadcast is tonight at 6.
  4. That open looks fine... it’s not ugly and it gets the job done.
  5. News out of Charlottesville, VA... Gray Television will sell the “Charlottesville Newsplex” CBS/ABC affiliates (WCAV/WVAW) to an affiliate of Lockwood Broadcasting. In turn, Gray is buying WVIR (NBC) from Waterman. It doesn’t appear to be part of any larger acquisition by Gray affecting WBBH/WZVN in Ft. Myers. Read more here.
  6. Keri's voice is a bit more sultry and enunciated. Suzy has a friendlier tone. It wouldn't surprise me if some of the NMSA entries are mislabeled either. WRC sounds more like Suzy Nelson
  7. A portion of a KING weekend newscast from 1999. Lots of other material on this channel. I don’t remember seeing this set of KING graphics before... these must have been used for about a year, right before the former Providence Journal stations package.
  8. Donna Gregory, formerly of WRAL, WNCN and NBC News is filling in for WWAY’s Randy Aldridge while he undergoes cancer treatment. https://www.wwaytv3.com/2019/02/22/veteran-anchor-donna-gregory-joins-wway-news-team/ She’s resided in the Wilmington since 2012.
  9. Great to hear more of that Otis Conner/Arnold theme!
  10. Do you have an idea of how long this series of opens was used? Did they have the 2000/2001 Raycom package? That’d be my guess.
  11. Atlanta brand identity firm Matchstic is behind the new design.
  12. The thing is... they had been using Image IX since 1997 with what sounds like the 'proper' cut. As for the three notes that sound when the newsrooms in Lynchburg, Danville, and Roanoke are mentioned - I can't tell if those are the NBC chimes mixed in with the music, or added when the open was produced. I'd say no since they're a little too slow to sound like NBC chimes, and don't even sound like G-E-C (I'm not musically inclined, so I can't tell)
  13. The AirCraft Library is part of Soundtrack Group.
  14. Or how about Vince Gerasole & Heidi Umbhau? Look at how she looks over at him at :16. Awww. They’re still married.
  15. A new year looming means more disputes... Mediacom and TEGNA: http://links.mail.mediacom.info/a/1223/preview/2761/2160062/1490962c17516c1f2aa59f64c89f9d5a4ac02e3c Cox and Nexstar: https://keepmynbc.com https://keepmyabc.com https://keepmycbs.com
  16. WSLS weather with Cindy Farmer from 1988. Includes most of the news open.
  17. WTKR has won the noon timeslot for years (TPIR effect) and they’ve claimed to win 8am, 7pm and 11pm this November. http://www.tribunemedia.com/wtkr-news-3-hampton-roads-1-local-news-source-at-8am-noon-7pm-11pm/ WAVY’s still technically #1 but not as dominant as they were in the 90s/2000s.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Do we still have the ability to edit posts? If we do, I can't find it.
  21. I think it debuts really really soon. Like, maybe today. I’d check out the live stream at 4
  22. 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.
  23. Virginian-Pilot article about the new set https://pilotonline.com/entertainment/tv/article_cef750c8-e825-11e8-931c-9758a6b90617.html
