  1. Without going full Speculatron, isn't WFXT's affiliation agreement tied to KOKI and WHBQ's?
  2. KTVI is finally outsourcing their graphics? Is it going to be the Tribune Fox package or the Nexstar Fox package?
  3. Curious to see how the ticker will look. Using the ticker from the old package on the new package is definitely not visually appealing.
  4. One word: Seahawks. That and the fact WJZY has been in the ratings basement since its inception. The former Fox affiliate still beats them in the ratings. KCPQ far better performs in the Seattle market in comparison which is why it's more valuable in the eyes of Fox. Fox's decision isn't as much of an indictment on the Charlotte market moreso than a tacit admission that taking the affiliation from WCCB was a mistake. It's also what kept Fox from trying the same thing in Seattle which is why they just waited for KCPQ to go on sale instead.
  5. Sounds like a recipe for something exactly like this to happen. That said, this story is a pleasant break from the rest of the news. Especially this week.
  6. I can't help but notice how similar the graphics look to what's been rolling out on the Meredith stations (especially the L3s). That's especially interesting since there are at least two markets where Meredith and Scripps both compete (Phoenix and KC).
  7. The fact that Marquee is now grouped in with the former FSNs and local affiliates definitely helps give Sinclair leverage with the providers. So basically it was "we'd like to give you our local affiliates and RSNs, but you have to add Marquee in return".
  8. I don't know how we missed this but it looks like KATU got them last month.
  9. Here is the close on KTVI. I imagine it's the same on KPLR. Interesting to note: Instead of listing various cities in the background of the close, KTVI/KPLR has decided to list the various counties in the viewing area.
  10. Oh darn, guess I can't watch the news on KDNL then. Seriously though, this will impact markets a lot harder than St. Louis. Columbus comes to mind with Ohio State being on Sinclair stations there.
  11. I'm not surprised, I've seen those Talkback 16 segments. The current controversy seems to be Millionare not airing on WNEP anymore (nevermind the fact the show stopped production). https://wnep.com/2019/09/10/talkback-16-what-happened-to-millionaire/ Curious to see what calls they'll get about their new ownership.
  12. Ick, I hope not. That would be a huge downgrade compared to their current package. I think you're right though sadly.
  13. Nothing against the standard Nexstar CBS affiliates graphics package but it's nice to see that a large market station like KOIN will have something that is somewhat still unique in comparison.
  14. Monday night. It started with WPBF in West Palm and has slowly shifted up the coast at the same rate Dorian has.
  15. This article provides more detail on what's going on. https://www.denverpost.com/2019/08/28/altitude-sports-contracts-nuggets-avalanche/amp/ Worth noting that unlike Fox and Comcast which streams their RSNs through YouTubeTV, Hulu, etc., Altitude doesn't. Seems like they're taking a very backwards approach to a rapidly changing industry.
