  1. Today though, (7/1/95) marks 25 years since the dawn of a new era for News 4 Texas as the CBS era came to a close that night. Last 2 CBS Programs to have aired on ch. 4 were saturday night staples: Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman + Walker, Texas Ranger.
  2. Would national afternoon news of sort work though?, granted it's extension of GMA. Would it replicate elsewhere if successful? Certain places like Argentina + Britain have lunchtime bulletins from what i've seen over at International O&A.
  3. And it appears according to TitanTV thru some CWPlus affiliates' schedules (ie: wktv, wsee, wnct-DT2s), starting monday, BOTH Live PD + Cops will be replaced by a hour of 'millionaire' reruns + SSN sports (syndie sports network) showcase filler usually aired on weekends. More on the latter thru PPI: https://progpart.wpengine.com/ssn-2/
  4. Skimming thru FCC filings + based on reasons bolded above, it appears the Univision affiliation + branding may move to WSTE, leaving WLII without an affiliate. It may signal a return to independent a la Teleonce (previous branding until 2002) Some of Uni/Unimas programming could go thru WAPA, while remain an indy. Similar to '90s + '00s when Telemundo PR had some Televisa novelas while WAPA had Uni-network programs (Primer Impacto, Cristina, Despierta Am.) + some Venevision programs. Cisneros groups had interest on ch. 4 back then. https://fcc.report/IBFS/SES-T-C-20200325-00323/2246378.pdf From another source, translated: https://www.tvboricuausa.com/2020/03/incierto-futuro-univision-puerto-rico-venta-canales-11-9-y-12.html "From what is clear from the document, although not textually, UnivisiĆ³n PR would be passing at some point to the WSTE-DT signal (channel 7), while channels 11, 9 and 12 would be operated by another company (once) time the sale is consummated." Q: What will happen with WAPA Deportes (sports subchannel) in terms of content? Will it rely more on TUDN + less on deals with NBA + MLB? (via ESPN/Turner/MLBN)
  5. ATTENTION to notable TVNTers near Chicagoland! Ladies and gents, the classy WGN Nightbeat theme has FINALLY been identified. From CPM library, track entitled "gadabout" (CPM-004A-41) Major credit: Museum of Classic Chicago Television
  6. Yep. He was also banned from future races by local sports council that sponsored same race he participated. He claimed on 'Inside Edition' he wanted to call attention to reporter by 'tap her on the shoulder or the back'. His hand appeared to touch lower than either. He also claimed he didn't know where the reporter was as he ran quickly past her. mmm-hmm. https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/runner-accused-groping-reporter-during-live-tv-broadcast-charged-sexual-n1102146 BTW, whoever created that juvenile + sick acronym inspiring f*ckboys like 'it' to display as such just to impress your friends online needs some beating. If that beating proves fatal, so be it. Why is that SHIT still a thing when that's as old as FTW + baba booey? Seriously. That's assault itself before unwanted touching. As for 'it' above, you made your bed, you lie in it. If that defines you for next 20 years, oh well, internet is forever. If that affects your job prospects and/or future relationships down the road, that protects future employers + suitors respectively. Deal.
  7. other notes: Apparently, Rudabeh Shahbazi (a crush among some here at TVNT) is abruptly out as anchor at WFOR after 5 years. Keyword is abruptly because there is no formal goodbye. After notifying the station that she's leaving for an opportunity as "a national reporter/anchor", Bosses made sure them locks were changed + she don't come back no more. That include not allowing her to retrieve her belongings, according to her. Any guesses on her next step btw? https://www.miamiherald.com/entertainment/celebrities/article242697671.html NBC 'Today' lost another crew member in 'Big Dave' Anderkavich, announced this past monday's show. No word on cause of death yet. https://www.today.com/video/today-remembers-beloved-crew-member-big-dave-anderkavich-83286597687
  8. If that's the case, then WOW! It made my spirit rise up + said Ain't God good? I'm not overtly religious but I felt that much. That said, continued strength + prayers for the family, FOX 8 + NE Ohio. Good news of this sort is sorely needed.
  9. Beat me to it ScottJ, but yes. I'm sorry, i know this was born out of necessity, but much to the chagrin (or probably not) of Reena Ninan + Elaine Quijano, it's gotta continue even when we head toward a (new) normalcy. It's been fun.
  10. Reminds me much of Venezuela's RCTV, whose closure in May 2007 when Venezuela's Government (helmed by Chavistas, those aligned with late then-leader hugo chavez) decided not to renew their broadcast concession, accusing their role in the 2002 coup d'etat, which briefly overthrew its socialist government. Its Justice system upheld the decision by the National Commission of Telecommunications (Venezuela's FCC) not to renew RCTV's broadcast license. Other two stations (Venevision, Televen) were also similarly accused but their licenses were renewed. Their reports were less critical of the gov't since then. No trial was ever set around that time or since then. That created outcry by opponents + other notable world figures accusing the gov't of 'silencing the media'. A memorable retrospective marathon in support of the network + its workers (actors, journalists, hosts) aired live on its last night. After signoff, it was replaced with a 'chavista' supported network on its signal.
  11. True. It's a situation that is volatile given its unpredictability. But that miscommunication tho...script said 'jack died' but NJ Gov. Murphy said he's alive + all, he might as well said christ has risen on top of it, but i digress. One head (writer) at least must face heat (but not roll, a bit cruel, given a volatile jobs environment) after this.
  12. obviously unfortunate circumstances BUT you can't tell 'em thirsty broads (and some dudes, no judging) below reactions on twitter or any social for nothing, wishing they were in that reporter's place. 'Welcoming distraction' indeed. To pray for Ajit Pay-off to sleep over is an understatement.
  13. maybe it's me but boy did this pandemic forced CBS out of their hand to be 'creative', for now it's due to different circumstances, but this is showcasing local talent thru the ranking (remember where national news talent get their start, LOCAL) maybe this is the path way forward for weekends once the pandemic ends. You can also make the case even if it's one time thing, it could be their audition tape in case either they have plans to take the next step or scouts could be ones searching for them in terms of potential offers.
  14. I don't see that from him (call me gullible til further notice) but lest we mention his interviews with his fellow governor brother Andrew garner much attention, let alone his 'bromance' transitions with Don Lemon at the top of the hour before Don's show, but one should digress, no? Hell you can make that similar bolded statement for every other (not ALL) 'celebrity' or notables coming out + claiming they've been tested positive. How they got tested sooner than others? Oh wait...but i'll digress this time.
  15. on paper it feels more lazy than gimmicky but at end of the day, safety first. would you want someone (god forbid) to develop the virus + go thru deep cleaning of a building, making it an inconvenience to work, enforcing more people to work from home? Also you can't compare the media industry from other fields (those that don't involve telecommunications) I agreed with above statement. That said I'd foolishly would like to see more people do this work at home even when the virus curbs down the road here + there. New normal is already reflective instead of a full team on a grandiose set. Ya know how those bean counters love to cut costs.
