  1. You just made my morning. Fantastic find!
  2. I wonder if this means Movies! or Buzzr disappears from Fox O&Os. I think most likely Movies! but Buzzr has the most accessibility of any netlet out there being on video streaming apps Pluto and Sinclair’s Stirr. So if Buzzr goes it’s not a huge loss.
  3. To add to this. Here is coverage from the Big 3 Pittsburgh stations of the Pirates World Series parade. Beginning with the end of the KDKA newscast I linked earlier.
  4. With my Youtube find from yesterday, how about I post the next year with the Philadelphia Phillies winning the 1980 World Series. I found this a few years ago, it has post game/celebration news coverage with channel flipping through all 3 Philly TV stations and post game coverage from WPHL who was the long time OTA flagship for the Phillies at that time. One question comes to mind. When did League Championship Series and World Series games stop being carried by the team's OTA Flagship station? I knew WPHL did their own coverage of the 1980 NLCS parallel with ABC's coverage but it was interesting to see KDKA show the World Series when they are a CBS affiliate showing a game off of ABC.
  5. Partial KDKA 2 Eyewitness News October 17, 1979. The night the Pittsburgh Pirates won the World Series.
  6. This was the bid for WM VI in 1990. LA wouldn’t get this one, Skydome (now Rogers Center) in Toronto would get it. LA would host WM VII the next year. Vince McMahon used security concerns from Operation Desert Storm as his excuse for why the event was moved to the LA Sports Arena from the Coliseum to cover up the low ticket sales.
  7. So you're the one that bought the WXFL SoTB Plate! I was going to buy it to put it on the front of my Orange Ford Escape with a Bucco Bruce era Tampa Bay Bucs license plate frame! Haha! Good find! Lucky you!

      Yeah. I couldn't pass it up, especially considering the sunset 10 jacket was too small for me. I probably won't be putting it on my car, though; that's the kind of thing I'd like to keep away from the elements.

  8. I’m hoping they repost the post-Super Bowl XIV newscast from January 20, 1980 again. KDKA had it on their website 10 years ago when the Steelers won their last Super Bowl. Also maybe they should or should have redone (since it’s winter) an image campaign like their sister WBZ did last year. Maybe Here’s 2 or Renaissance 2.
  9. WPXI and WHIO has NOW programming as well but WPXI’s has been mostly replays of newscasts and the WPXI Christmas Parade and WHIOs has only been news replays, I haven’t seen any other content. Thanks for mentioning the listings being on TitanTV. I’ll have to see it!
  10. It’s a shame Cox is looking to sell. I just discovered the Roku channels for their stations and they have live streaming content on almost all of their stations with unique local programming. Of the one’s I’ve downloaded (WSB, WHIO (my home area now), WFTV, WJAX, and WPXI), WSB and WFTV has some pretty good programs like Access Atlanta, The Science of Florida, and On Tap with Christian Bruey. I haven’t downloaded the other channels since I’ve never lived in the other areas but are the others as good as WSB and WFTV’s? This really shows how good of an owner Cox is.
  11. I was seeing some old Live at Five videos on YouTube and decided to Google search Katie Kelly and whatever happened to her and apparently she passed away in May. https://www.omaha.com/columnists/kelly/nebraska-native-katie-kelly-former-new-york-city-tv-celebrity/article_6757cd45-d7bd-5166-bce7-d045980c7e77.html She lived a very modest life after television in Vietnam and then back to her home state of Nebraska. Not many pictures online from after she left television except on this article/obituary. So that’s the third person from the original Live at Five talent that has passed away with Don Pardo and Liz Smith preceding her. Neither WNBC nor WABC mentioned her passing online.
  12. Longtime WPXI Sports Director Sam Nover died overnight. He was a major part of the Pittsburgh Steelers TV coverage during the team’s dynasty in the 70s when then-WIIC was the team’s flagship station carrying their preseason games and the majority of their regular and postseason games carried on NBC. He also was the last person to interview Roberto Clemente two months before he died tragically in a plane crash on New Year’s Eve 1972. He worked for WIIC/WPXI from 1970-2001 with a two year stint at NBC in between from 1980-82. https://www.post-gazette.com/local/region/2018/12/04/Sam-Nover-longtime-WPXI-sportscaster-dies-at-77/stories/201812040178
  13. It probably was a double douche move all happening over the weekend. WBNS finds out Bradley is going to die (surely before he made the statement on social media), calls Elwell and says “Hey, we need a new Chief Met. Wanna come back?” Elwell says “Sure!”. Elwell tells WHIO, “Hey I got offered the Chief position at my old station, I’m going to take it and leave in a month and a half” WHIO says “Oh really?!!” “Well good for you!” “You’re demoted to Noon and McCall Vrydaghs will take your place effective immediately!”. Or in reality knowing how much of a good guy Eric Elwell is, he told them and graciously scaled back to the Noon to make room for McCall Vrydaghs right away. But he really should have waited a week to announce why he’s on at Noon and McCall is on at night.
  14. How do you know he's going back to WBNS? He mentioned on his FB page that he is going back to Columbus but didn't say where. I know he probably can't for non-compete reasons as the other stations in both markets are owned by Sinclair and Nexstar. But would that even fall under non-compete if it's a different market?
