  1. Someone at TVA has been watching football on Fox.
  2. Set to become O&O's January 1, 2022. https://www.orlandosentinel.com/espanol/el-sentinel-in-english/os-ex-english-univision-communications-takes-over-station-20211013-qet4rw4rovhdzjlrgdsmgeqnne-story.html
  3. The way they redesigned it, it would be easy to remove the "Local" branding.
  4. Only a matter of time before the same thing happens with WOI.
  5. I still don't think they've fully recovered from that. Is KTVU still the Bay Area news juggernaut it was under Cox?
  6. Retransmission fees are the biggest scam in broadcasting. And that greed is going to contribute to its ultimate demise. Its upsetting.
  7. I'm not up to speed on my sport gambling laws, but I take it that these are markets in states where sports gambling is legal?
  8. As cheap as the Waypoint newscasts look. They still look a lot more polished than the pre-packaged garbage from the Coastal stations.
  9. Oh really? I know KRCG always dominates in Jefferson City because of its focus in that part of the market (for obvious reasons) but for some reason I thought KOMU still dominated in Columbia. Has KMIZ made up that much ground or is the market just that split these days?
  10. Considering how strapped for cash the University of Missouri is, I wouldn't hold my breath. As long as they're still the market leader, they have no incentive to change it.
  11. It looks a lot better than the old graphics.
  12. I dunno, I think what KTVI has now looks a lot better than what the in-house stuff they had before.
  13. Kind of dumb when people can watch a stream of WNEP news for free.
  14. Looks like it debuted over the weekend (just in time for an impending winter storm). Looks like they got a KOIN/WFLA style set. https://fox2now.com/news/missouri/fox-2-unveils-new-broadcast-studio/
  15. They haven't. It does air on the "city channel" on Stirr which I think is why they launched those channels. Because outside of The National Desk, there are no local news programs on those channels.
  16. They'll do it for as long as it takes to keep ABC happy (ABC "would like" their affiliates to have local news leading into World News Tonight and out of primetime programming). I wouldn't be shocked if something similar happened with KDNL (Especially if WSYX has the resources for it since KDNL's master control is there)
  17. “We were told we had to change the name of Trump Country,” Morris said in a voicemail message left with The News-Press. “Biden’s team contacted us, and we were afraid we’d lose our license, our license to broadcast, if we didn’t change it. So we went ahead and changed it.” Give me a break, that's such a load of BS. I doubt Biden is concerned about branding on a radio station in SWFL. I think it's more likely Trump's team was the one that called them to stop it. Either that or they saw the lost cause they attached the branding of their new format to and the expiration da
  18. https://amp.newsobserver.com/news/state/north-carolina/article248454550.html?__twitter_impression=true They found who bought the billboard.
  19. The News 4 branding has been with KMOV for ages, they aren't going to drop that. And you are correct, this is more of an update of the previous graphics they got just a couple of years ago moreso than a brand new package overall.
  20. Part of me really does wonder if they chose those colors because they're similar to the St. Louis Blues colors (they do have a media partnership with them). Otherwise KMOV did a nice job.
  21. I get the frustration. Personally I think the current studio KTVI has is still fine.
  22. KWQC has released a statement about their decision. https://www.kwqc.com/2020/12/02/tv6-not-airing-baltimore-ravens-vs-pittsburgh-steelers-game/ The remark about people not being able to stream it easy struck me as incredibly tone deaf.
  23. That's really more of an indictment on the stations in Topeka and Wichita if anything.
  24. Curious if WRTV isn't getting a ratings bump because of all of this.
