  1. Update: This Yuma petition has been advanced to NPRM.
  2. Ever since this news came out last week, I've thought about whether Forum would acquire KDLT's former building for its future news op. Well just this week, KELO reported that there was a fire that hit parts of that building.
  3. Okay. It appears the station updated the guides. Looking at Channel 2's grid, I'm seeing "KCAL News {time} on CBS Los Angeles" on all of their news slots starting Monday (12/5). Are they really going "KCAL News" as their unified news brand?
  4. Well, Forum can't snag ABC. Gray just renewed its affil agreement that keeps the Alphabet on KSFY.
  5. Gray has renewed its deal with ABC in all 25 markets.
  6. Four R&Os today. The rest of the MTN cluster got the greenlight today. KPAX (7 > 25) KRTV (7 > 22) KTVH (12 > 31) KXLF (5 > 15)
  7. So WPTA has announced last week about its future plans. The current, separate Fort Wayne's NBC evening (5, 6 & 11pm) newscasts will continue through Friday, December 16. WPTA will be adding a new 7-9am (on MyTV 21.3) & 4pm broadcasts beginning Monday, January 9. Current Fort Wayne's NBC anchor Julian Teekaram will join Kayla Stewart in the mornings, while co-anchor Linda Jackson will join Krista Miller on the 4 & 5pm-casts.
  8. Paperwork is up. Purchase Price: $1.4M.
  9. New scuffle. Fox & DirecTV. Blackouts could happen as early as Friday Night (12/2).
  10. Mankato's KEYC debuted a new set this week. The news anchor in the video stated that this was first time it replaced the flooring in that studio in more than SIXTY years!!!!
  11. Forum did own KSFY for over a decade, before selling it to Aflac in 1985.
  12. Well, fifty miles from DC, WBAL longtime anchor Stan Stovall also signed off tonight after 44 years.
  13. At 3:08pm, WBTV announced on air the deaths of Meteorologist Jason Myers & pilot Chip Tayag.
  14. Two things today. One, it appears that Sinclair's KVII Amarillo have lit up RF 20 this week. The License to Cover app was posted today. Also, new petition. A PBS station in Roanoke, WBRA wants to vacate VHF-low 3 for VHF-high 13. Anything to get off that hellhole signal is a good thing.
  15. New M&A. Marquee Broadcasting is getting another Ohio station. They're acquiring Lima, OH's WLMA (formerly WTLW) from owner American Christian Television Services, Inc. for $2M.
  16. New scuffle. Dish Network has blacked out the Standard Media stations (KLKN, KBSI/WDKA & WLNE).
  17. Follow-up. Almost two years since they'd filed, the station have now withdrawn this petition.
  18. So after exactly one year after a graphics changes & technology upgrades and whatnot, now they're going to install a new studio set? All of that should've been taken care off last year.
  19. I don't know why they switch LMAD off the 9am in the first place last season. Glad it's been corrected. _______________________________________________ Anywho, Kelly Clarkson just been rewarded a two-season renewal on the NBC O&Os today.
  20. Nope. The FCC ordered Gray to just pay that fine. No divestitures.
  21. Hold the phone. Nicco didn't do the 5p. He did the 11a & 4p. Sandhya does 5 & 6p.
  22. So the press release states that Rudabeh will be paired with Jamie on the 7-10am portion. Kalyna will solo anchor the 4am half-hour, as well as traffic anchor throughout the show. And assuming they're keeping Marci & Chris on the 4:30-7 portion, who's going to anchor the 10am hour?
  23. Big Follow-Up. The FCC is following through with the $518,283K fine. Gray said it will appeal through the courts. Here's the forfeiture paper.
  24. A deal was made between Nexstar & Verizon Fios today (10/28), ending a two-week blackout.
  25. What's to stop WHIZ of getting ABC? Sinclair doesn't own a station in the Zanesville market.
