  1. Speaking of Storm Buggies WCAU is the media sponsor of the Philadelphia Home Show and at their booth they were giving away NBC10/Telemundo 62 swag including miniature Storm Buggies: Eat your heart out Hess Truck!

    Fox in talks to sell to Disney

    Yeah you missed what I was saying. They already did just that back in November. I do stand corrected that they haven't closed the deal as of yet from what I see.

    Fox in talks to sell to Disney

    Yankees already assumed full ownership of YES after the sale was approved. Their partnership with Fox had language that allowed them to take back Fox's stakes in the network if something like this happened.

    NBC Sports Philadelphia New Studio?

    Logistically why wouldn't they want to be in building and in the same area of all four teams they cover? They're the broadcast partner of three of those teams. They'd be down there most of that time anyway. It would only make sense to be headquartered there. It's not like they're renting out that space in the Wells Fargo Center, Comcast owns the building. They have a unique situation with in the group they're owned by corporation that owns one of the teams they cover.

    NBC Sports Philadelphia New Studio?

    Yeah I saw the make shift newsroom they have set up at Penn's Landing on Barrett Brooks' Instagram. I figured this was coming with the overall renovations going on at the Wells Fargo Center. Would only make sense renovating your space would be part of that. Any timetable of when the studios will be done? They just said "a few weeks" on air but we know that could actually mean a few months lol
  6. New set coming for NBC Sports Philadelphia. Can't speak for the other networks, but NBCSP has been using that Comcast SportsNet-set-in-a-can virtually un-altered since its debut in 2008 so this is much much needed.

    2018-19 NHL (and NBA) season

    I think that's where they're heading when they finally update the insert package. I think the SNF look will still be unique and then the other properties will get an insert package that draws some parallels to the SNF look but not by much. Even better if its even remotely like TNF's inserts. While I like current look, and it is leaps and bounds better than Troika's package that proceeded it, I don't think it's aging very well and not replacing it during this past year's Super Bowl is a mistake. This also goes double for the RSNs who use their own animation package for game telecasts and it has aged worse than the inserts. I hope they aren't planning to wait for their next Super Bowl to update their other properties' looks.

    NBC 10 Thread

    Couple months in now and the set got a mini refresh with the big colored light panels that adorned either side of the home base backdrop being replaced by stone pillars. To me, it's a much better look. The light panels were bare and didn't really add anything of substance to the video wall. The stone brings it out much more.

    NBC 10 Thread

    They're promoting they won the demo M-F at 11. I assume what you're going off is the 11PM number for the entire week?

    NBC 10 Thread

    Another promo claims wins in the morning and at 4PM as well. NBC has done a hell of a job investing in the station and it's paying off big time.
  11. RK is referring to the futurecast models. NBC has a proprietary prediction model for its O&Os now. WCAU uses it alongside the Euro, NAM, and GFS models.

    The CBS 3 Eyewitness News Thread

    So you're the one lol

    The Channel 6 Action News Thread

    PHL is wrapped at 10:57. The tease at 10:59 is live.

    NBC 10 Thread

    They actually haven't had a permanent anchor for the 11AM since Renee ummm..."left". Since then though they've really grown their talent pool and I think it's safe to say they now have the largest news team in the market. With that in mind, why wouldn't you want to have variety at the anchor desk every newscast?

    NBC 10 Thread

    So I think it's safe to say they brought Lucy in to free Vai up to co-anchor the 11AM with Rosemary. It wouldn't shock me if they bring someone on eventually to co-anchor the weekend evenings with Denise as it seems to be their goal to have two anchors for every newscast now.
