  1. These have been in place since they moved to their new set in July.
  2. Today was Brigida Mack's last day at WBTV...she is leaving the station after 10 years. Her reporting work, involvment in the community, as well as launching their 4pm newscast and (now-defunct) 8pm newscast on their .2 (Bounce TV) were really some key reasons why WBTV has overtaken WSOC for No. 1 in the ratings.
  3. Meteorologist Ashley Batey has left WTSP. In the comments, she says that she will announce her next move soon.
  4. Interesting you bring this up. I remember toward the front end of my time in Buffalo (late '90s/early 2000s) that WBEN used this before switching to the WMAL imaging package not long after they were sold to Entercom.
  5. Yes, "ABC never buys stations", but this makes too much sense. You don't think ABC would want a station in a still-growing Top 10 market - and one of its largest and most powerful affiliates - now that it has a chance? Even Charlotte and Orlando, which is a smaller market by comparison, have seen significant population growth over the past few years (moreso Charlotte than Central Florida). This is an easy call to make.
  6. Starboard Value is a hedge fund that's interested in one thing only: to make money. Selling Tribune in one piece rather than piecemeal has the potential to make them the most money. It's really that simple.
  7. That's actually not bad. Obviously a Nexstar package, but not bad.
  8. To add to that, WDCW's 10pm newscast (produced by WTVR) is getting axed too. Always was going to be an uphill battle against FOX 5 in that slot...
  9. Interesting how ESPN's graphics were standardized across all its properties - now each one (SportsCenter, MLB, NBA, CFB, CBB, NFL) has a unique package.
  10. This seems as good a source as any.
  11. Wonder what this means for their radio clusters? Have to think some or all of them - probably not their heritage stations like WSB and WHIO - might be on the block too, right?
  12. Have to think Comcast gets right of first refusal as a make-good from Disney for losing the bid, right?
  13. I would think it's just Baltimore since that #11 could be theoretically used by anyone else anywhere in the country.
  14. Except that a) they're acquiring a station in a Top 20 market and b) technically CBS or Viacom didn't own the station in question. FOX isn't buying WSFL to run it as an independent.
