  1. I've never been the biggest fan of Ansin's approach (the flashy, tabloid-y look and feel, buying WLVI just to keep it out of NBC's hands, etc), but he did things his way and came out on top, and I have to respect that.
  2. So, not really anything odd as far as the Charlotte market is concerned.
  3. Did it have any O&Os before Fox bought WJZY?
  4. (A big thank-you to whoever split this out into its own thread. )
  5. According to the Washington Post, this is what happened after the break:
  6. AT&T/Warner should just blow up HLN and do something non-news with it.
  7. I'm surprised Nashua is still the CoL, to be honest.
  8. I don't think the name change is petty; in fact, it feels like a straightforward and sensible change. Now, if it had been renamed to "Disney Searchlight Pictures", that would be petty.
  9. Heck, they could make it without other groups.
  10. I hope Nexstar also plans on ensuring that WGNA is available in HD. I can only get it in SD here in southern NH (Xfinity). That said, I like what they're thinking and I'll definitely check News Nation out when it premieres.
  11. Yeah, that string of URL spew at the end is ugly. A bigger issue, though, is that the site isn't responsive; rather, they're still using a separate mobile site. Also, the WVEC logo is tiny! It should be at least twice as big, like I've done below.
  12. Trump Allies Explore Buyout of Conservative Channel Seeking to Compete With Fox News https://www.wsj.com/articles/trump-allies-explore-buyout-of-conservative-news-channel-one-america-news-network-11578696767 My understanding is that OANN is farther to the right of Fox News, so I'm not entirely sure what they're looking to accomplish here. I also don't think people who are politically in the center and right-of-center are desperate for programming that aligns with their views. In fact, I bet most people in those parts of the political spectrum aren't looking to w
  13. Oh, come on. There are more options here than "stay-at-home moms" and people in assisted living/nursing homes. There are: Retired people People who work non-"standard" hours and are thus free to have the TV on in the mornings if they're awake People who work from home and are thus also free to have the TV on Stay-at-home dads And those are just the ones I can think of.
  14. Yup. Not as old as the The[CityName]Channel names used by a lot of sites that used to be hosted by Internet Broadcasting, but still old.
  15. That would be the smartest route. Why bring back a company name from the past when you can come up with something new?
  16. Then you would've hated WGBH's "Flash of Doom". More info here.
  17. Much like how several former LIN executives who had stayed on with Media General were able to influence Nexstar when it bought MG.
  18. Chris Hayes addressed the issue on his show last night. https://www.mediaite.com/tv/msnbcs-chris-hayes-addresses-nbc-scandal-on-air-commends-ronan-farrows-weinstein-reporting/
  19. Maybe they turn a camera on and let viewers watch them get ready to go for the day.
