    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    WBFS did have a 10PM news for a while as did WSFL in the late 90s and early 2000s but considering how strong WSVN is, I doubt it makes any financial sense to run a newscast. I just think that more than likely they will start hubbing out of WPTV (like MC and other functions) so that it can be literally low cost.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Probably think they can also hub it with WPTV From a source within Graham, that will probably not happen. If anything, Warren Buffet will probably sell back to Graham if and when he does not want to run WPLG anymore. Not only that, technically WPLG is still mostly managed by Graham.

    Scripps to acquire Cordillera

    Just wondering if anyone has heard the latest in the deal between Cordillera and Scripps?

    For the front-end website publishing it is handled by Lakana and they are more than likely using AWS. In that case, it is more important for them to be at near 100% uptime. I am assuming that Nexstar probably is working towards enterprising their backend IT infrastructure including Virtualization (like station operations/DCs/Exchange Servers/i.e.)

    Admittedly it is easier to handle scale of operations from a cloud perspective and going towards AWS or some other cloud based platform. Means for the stations IT department, they do not actually have to have the station's website on a station's local servers, and can ensure maximum uptime for a station's web presence. I would also expect that with virtualization being big as well, if a company like Nexstar isn't using something that is enterprised across their stations (for contingency purposes), than that would be kind of silly.

    Scripps - General Discussion

    If they somehow can continue making money, than they aren't going to fire them

    February 2019 Sweeps Roundup

    WTVF does run a 4 AM and they are a CBS affiliate. I think they might be the only ones. They also run from I think 4-8 (7-8 being on NC5+). But they don't run a noon newscast. They run a 11AM Talk of the Town show, but pretty much after 8AM they are done.

    Are you sure that its Scripps management or is it probably KGUN management not wanting to go to those graphics for whatever reason.

    Non-News Classic Video

    The Turn Back the Clock game that FOX broadcasted in 2000. Very interesting to see now and to see the changes from 2000 to 2019

    Holy Graphics Knockoff Batman!!

    This is sadly owned by KHQ, so I would more blame KHQ than this station. They are just using whats available to them

    Out & About

    I dont know if this got mentioned, but KPRC is celebrating 70 years this year: They have added an interactive site on click2houston.com https://www.click2houston.com/s/anniversary/2000s/2007.html (there is a menu bar to the left that can go through the different years.) Also, the crazy part is that Bill is fixing to get to 50 years of broadcasting, with right now 47 years in the city of Houston.
