  1. Two of the late, great broadcast giants. Larry King on The Late Late Show w/Tom Snyder... RIP Larry King and Tom Snyder... and Godspeed.
  2. Wolf Blitzer's tribute to Larry King. They'll never be another LK... Long Live, Larry King... Long live the King.
  3. I've already posted the obit of Donna on the In Memoriam section.
  4. KDFW: Needs a new set... BADLY! KXAS: No change. Still the best set in DFW market, wish KXAN/Austin would get a set like that if they would get a new building. WFAA: Victory Park studio, no need to change, but the main studio on Young Street needs it. KTVT: Needs a few tweaks and a new anchor desk (like the ones KCBS, WCBS, WFOR, KOVR, or KCNC have).
  5. Baton Rouge Television and WAFB are mourning the loss of legendary anchor Donna Britt. Britt passed away this morning after losing her battle of ALS. Donna Britt was 62. Thoughts, prayers, and condolences are with Donna's family and to her extended family at WAFB 9 News. https://www.wafb.com/2021/01/21/beloved-wafb-anchor-donna-britt-passes-away/
  6. In Houston, ABC Owned KTRK ABC 13 still have its "Cares About Texas" campaign. I think its still be used in PSA commercials.
  7. They'll be a new main anchor at WSMV Channel 4. The Nashville NBC station hired CBS 17 (WNCN) main anchor Marius Payton to be the stations 5, 5, 6:30 and 10pm anchor with my friend, Tracy Kornet. Payton replaces Tom Randles who left the station last year in September after he and 'SMV management could not agree to a new contract. No start date on when he'll debut on WSMV Channel 4 News. https://www.tennessean.com/story/entertainment/2021/01/19/marius-payton-nashville-channel-4-hires-ex-memphis-tv-news-anchor/4197512001/ And with Marius Payton leaving The North Caro
  8. XLV are up against 'FMY, 'GHP, and 'XII... as always. The VHFs are always going on top of the news ratings in The Piedmont while the UHF station is lagging. IMO, if 'XLV can't get good ratings in their newscasts in less than two years, might as well shut down once again. And if I was ABC, I'd yank the affiliation from 'XLV and return it 'GHP.
  9. Nelson R mentioned it'll last a year, I agree. The new ABC45 News won't be no help in the ratings.
  10. How long you'll that will last?
  11. You're right, it's Bobeth. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2021/1/11/another-one-gone-in-atlanta
  12. True. Unless... Meredith decides to sell WGCL/WPCH to Nexstar.
  13. Quincy Media has put itself on the for sale block https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2021/1/7/breaking-media-group-puts-themselves-on-the-sales-block
  14. Any of your favorite shows get preempted today due to the protest coverage?
  15. There's no way that's going to happen.
  16. How 'bout some vintage Detroit TV from Chris Sloan!
  17. Alex Trebek's final week as host of 'Jeopardy!' begins tomorrow. This is going to be an emotional week for game show fans as well as fans of 'Jeopardy!', including yours truly. https://tvline.com/2021/01/03/alex-trebek-jeopardy-last-show-airdate-final-episode/
  18. More vintage newscasts from Chris Sloan.
  19. KMID BIG 2 has hired a new main anchor. The Midland-Odessa's ABC station hired Karsen Buschjost to join Katie Orth for Big 2 News at 5, 6 & 10pm Buschjost replaces Eddie Flores, who joined the station in 2018 was on medical leave battling cancer. Flores bio is no longer there. Welcome to Texas Karsen, and thoughts and prayers to Eddie Flores.
