  1. They've been playing some new music on the spring training telecasts, and the only remnant of the MLB on FOX theme is down to the very short open. Hopefully they go with a high quality look- graphics wise.
  2. He came to FOX 11 from KFMB, not KSWB. He's a good anchor and reporter, but I never really saw his appeal as the top anchor. When he left KFMB, they were doing very well in the mornings, his co-anchor Nichelle Medina was let go a few months after Dan left. I'm sure it was difficult for him to achieve the same chemistry/friendship at Fox 11, that he had with Nichelle for the 15 years they anchored together. Let's see what he ends up doing next...
  3. It is easier said than done. The teams don't want the hassle of negotiating directly with video providers, hence why the RSN/Parent company handles that . Also, the team can request that the RSN make as many deals possible with all parties involved, but ultimately that responsibility lies with the RSN. If the team is so adamant to have its games widely available, and the video providers are not on-board 100% with the fees being charged, then one side will have to give in. Will the team/RSN accept a lower payment in exchange for distribution, or will the video provider decline to pa
  4. Wonder what happened to that new set Carlo talked about a few months after Tegna took over? The set still looks good, but they should start looking at a replacement especially if they want more flexibility with the types of shows they're doing. The set works best if they had the traditional, sit-down type of newscast. Since Tegna took over, they have made it an emphasis to be more mobile and more focus on social media and it makes the set look cramped. The new set pieces (i.e. extra monitor wall, and more tables/chairs) just add to that already cramped space.

    Well, they cut the 4:30am newscast, so that's one less thing for Heather to do, theoretically. My guess is that she'll still contribute to the 11am/Noon shows, and gets bumped off mornings. Seems like Neda has been filling in the weather anchor/fill-in anchor role pretty frequently, so she can easily slide in to fill Heather's spot. The Tegna influence has been slow to creep in, compared to other stations in the group. Honestly, I was expecting them to do some kind of lifestyle show sooner, rather than later. Let's see what else they do. A new set, perhaps?

    They were originally going to have a 4pm newscast when they acquired the CW affiliation but that never came to fruition. I'm curious to see what kind of format this show will take, and if they're going to start using the CBS 8 logo more instead of the NEWS 8 logo. Seems like they also dropped the 4:30am newscast, i'm sure it was to accommodate the noon newscast.
  7. So it seems like they're very slowly de-emphasizing the FOX Sports brand on air. Some of the graphics (Top/Bottom inning recap/L3's) are not showing FOX [team logo] on them. Also heard a promo for college basketball but the voiceover did not say FOX Sports San Diego at the end, even though the Fox Sports logo appeared on screen.
  8. Very stupid and short-sighted. The CBS eye should have never been removed from their on-air branding. My guess is they probably didn't have a mic flag with the CBS eye, so thus this "creation", unless they plan to go back to that logo...
  9. Chopper 8 was not owned nor operated by KFMB; It's operated by Welk Aviation. The chopper is part of a sharing agreement between Total Traffic and the local news stations, it would be up to them as to what they do next. I don't think we're at that point where you can really replace a news chopper with a drone or set of drones, just yet. Yes, the overhead expenses for Drones are substantially lower than a regular news chopper, but you have to factor all the logistics in trying to get that drone airborne. Also, they have to coordinate with first responders so as not to hinder their a
  10. I read a while back that at the beginning of this baseball season, FS1 was sending out their crews to the games they were airing during the middle of the week. Previously, they had relied 100% on the local FSN's infrastructure (FS1 just supplied the announcers). This was from one of the producers of FS1. The biggest challenge was trying to untangle all those synergies that FOX had created between FS1 and FSN. I'd be willing to bet that there will be a full rebrand early on in 2020. I don't think Sinclair can keep using the FOX Sports branding for too long.

    It can't be any other station but KUSI. Look at what's been happening the last few months with all these sudden "departures". You have Dani Ruberti completely disappear, then Allen Denton and Carlos Amezcua "retire" and now you have Sandra shown the door. Plus, check out FTVLive's articles on the station in the last 6-8 months or so. Take the articles with a grain of salt, but don't discount that the station is a dumpster fire https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2018/11/16/turmoil-in-san-diego https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/1/14/kusi-backs-off-cnn-accusations

    What a very ominous good-bye. WTF does she mean by the new generation arriving soon? My guess is that there are many more changes ahead. Wonder if Dave Scott is next?

    When was she canned? I just saw her on Friday night anchoring. If true, it's all salary dump, like the departures of Allen and Carlos... I don't know where else she could go in the market. The only station with an opening is KGTV.

    Well my guess is that they're tired of having to replace anchors on that morning show. After Stan Miller left, the AM news has gone to shit. They probably wanted a familiar face with Lauren and honestly, I do like the move. The PPR is aired on Friday's in the fall so it's conceivable that he still ends up hosting the show. Something major must be happening inside that place. They've gone full pro-Trump. People always knew/suspected of their conservative bias, but now its pretty blatant. Also, the fact that Carlos "retired" suddenly, only to pop up hosting a show with former KUSI an
