  1. ATLANTA: They just ran the promo, but WAGA found a time slot for Jay Leno’s You Bet Your Life: Midnight, bumping Extra to 12:30 and moving the TMZ repeat to 2:30 am after Access Hollywood (they previously had the 1980 version with Buddy Hackett; WXIA carried Bill Cosby’s in 1992). Other than that (besides WPCH picking up Young Sheldon and Nick Cannon’s talker), everything else remains status quo on ‘AGA, WSB, WXIA, and WGCL; dunno about WATL and WUPA.
  2. Meanwhile...Former lead anchor Joe Vigil is now at KVVU in Las Vegas; Melissa Frey also joined from KTVA and is now KTUU/KAUU Chief Meteorologist (Jackie Purcell is still the Senior Met, but has reduced her role), while Megan Mazurek is still on the GCI payroll, now as Contributions and Senior Events Manager. I think Byron Allen should step in and buy KTVA and make it a news-intensive independent.
  3. Winners of Sunday's (8/15) Ohio Valley Emmys, which saw WDRB taking Evening Newscast and News Excellence (among others, especially for their Breonna Taylor coverage) and WLKY, Morning/Daytime/Weekend Newscast and Overall Excellence: https://ohiovalleyemmy.org/files/2021/08/2021_Ohio-Valley-Chapter_Emmy-Recipient-List.pdf
  4. This may be a Regional Emmys thread, but let’s not forget about the big guns: As usual, PBS leads the News and Documentary Emmys with 52 nods followed by CNN (41) and CBS (30); HBO and Netflix got 13 apiece — the former narrowly reclaimed their lead in terms of Primetime nods — while newcomers Peacock and Disney+ received only one apiece (Prime Video, Hulu, and Apple TV+: zero). In Spot or Breaking News on the regional side: WKYC, WPLG, WTVF (two), KMGH, KFOR, and WCCO; Investigative Report: WBBM, KNXV, KXAS, WXIA, and WVUE. As in last year, it’ll be a two-night affair
  5. The 73rd Los Angeles Emmys were last night (7/24), and for the fifth year in a row...it was all KCET, still the most-honored PBS station in the country taking nine awards followed by KVEA (Telemundo) and Spectrum SportsNet both with six. KABC picked up four among the English-language commercial stations, while KTLA's two wins were for Morning and Evening Newscasts and KNBC…bupkis. https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/kcet-leads-2021-l-a-area-emmy-wins-while-ktla-lands-two-top-newscast-awards-1235026936/ And playing catch-up: 44th Boston/New England Emmys (14
  6. More about APT's Overall Excellence Emmy: https://aptv.org/apt-news/apt-wins-emmy-for-pandemic-response/ Meanwhile...at the 43rd Michigan Emmys, WXYZ took the big prizes for Newscast (Morning, Daytime, or Evening) and News Excellence; Overall Excellence went to Fox/Bally Sports Detroit: https://natasmichigan.org/files/2021/06/The-43rd-Annual-Michigan-Emmy-Winners-Official-Final.pdf Here are the nominees for the 73rd Los Angeles Emmys on July 24; KCET of course leads with 23 nods (21 for KVEA (Telemundo)) while KABC led the English-language commercial stations
  7. Oh, and the San Francisco Emmys were a couple weeks ago as well; KNTV took home 16 awards among the English-language stations while KUVS dominated the Spanish-language field with 12 (both took Overall Excellence; there were a few wins for Hawaii as well). https://emmysf.tv/files/2021/06/Emmy-21-Recipient-Press-Release.pdf
  8. From WSB’s Mike Petchenik:
  9. The Southeast Emmys were last night (6/19); WXIA took the most haul with 21 (Brendan Keefe now has 113 overall!) followed by WGCL with nine (including Morning Newscast). News Excellence and Daily Newscast belonged to WSB and in an upset, it was Alabama Public Television for Overall Excellence. WAGA managed to collect a couple, so it was not a complete shut-out (WYFF dominated the mid-markets). On the Spanish-language front: Univision shared Overall and News Excellence with APT and WSB respectively (among many awards), Telemundo Atlanta co-won Daily Newscast with WSB, and MundoHispa
  10. Right; Morning Rush and Up Late are simply "Morning News" and "News at 11" respectively. Now if WSB can drop that stupid "WSB Tonight" and call their late news the "Nightbeat" once again...
  11. It’s Emmys time once again, and this year like last year, the handouts are being done virtually. We start with the Northwest (my home region), which saw KGW repeating as Overall Excellence (while KTUU/KAUU (the latter formerly KYES) walks away empty handed on the Alaska side): https://static1.squarespace.com/static/589ccb1e15d5dbf1618a29c8/t/60c11905d5b9da134114c61c/1623267589878/Emmy+Award+Recipients_June+7.docx And the Lower Great Lakes Emmys (covering Indiana and Northern Ohio (including Cleveland and Toledo)) were last night (6/12); WEWS cleaned up, taking New
  12. Probably status quo as far as WABC and KABC are concerned in their respective markets (though in L.A., it’s been neck-and-neck between KTLA and KCAL at 10:00 pm), with WNBC/KNBC and WCBS/KCBS fighting for second. Who’s “we” (can’t be KSHB, as they’ve been #3 or #4)?
  13. Yes, it is legit alright according to Nielsen, as we have shot up three notches from #10: https://mediatracks.com/resources/nielsen-dma-rankings-2021 San Francisco…YOU’RE NEXT!!!!! (as more and more Californians have been leaving the state lately)
  14. Probably status quo, though Tampa-St. Petersburg is the larger market (#13 to Miami’s #18); there, I would say it was back and forth between WTVT and WFLA.
  15. Ooh, that poses to be bad news for KPRC. Here in Atlanta, which has now passed Houston, Washington, and Boston to become the #7 TV market in America…it’ll be the same old BS from WSB (though WAGA and WGCL have been on their tail the last couple of years).
