  1. Concur. As we see this past week, let alone weeks before, Biden has a lot of priorities to worry about some small stunt in some small town USA. Let's face it, Trump only makes money on things he want to make money out of, not vice versa. That's on brand with his 'brand'. Besides, It's not quite coincidental as businesses + associates are severing ties from a brand quite 'toxic' as of late, if not for a while, just as a nation we're going thru a chaotic transition.
  2. I was the one who uploaded it because I know this was of interest to those within this community especially those who hold some announcers to high regard, like Nantz. RIP Mr. Robertson + thank you for your presence.
  3. Just uploaded on my YT page same promo you're talking about. Neat ad. BTW here's the intro to the return of 'the 10 o' clock news' in 20 years. Disregard the title. There's no 'WNYW Plus' but I digress...
  4. It was just reflected on my YouTubeTV guide. Let's see if any changes could ever closely resemble to the gritty newscasts of yesteryear with certain elements intact.
  5. Re: WLII... if you believe this, (only source so far reporting it by this note) TVBoricuaUSA is reporting a familiar branding may return to old ch. 11. https://www.tvboricuausa.com/2020/12/regresa-teleonce-puerto-rico-univision-2021.html Translated: Following the approval of the sale of Univision by the FCC , channel 11 and its repeater stations in Puerto Rico will have a new identity. TVboricuaUSA sources assured that the channel will stop being called Univision and will become known as TeleOnce. The announcement, to be made shortly by Liberman Media Group, wo
  6. FCC has granted Fox another temporary waiver for NJ's WWOR-TV + New York Post rather than permanent due to legal limbo re: its newspaper/broadcast cross-ownership rule. https://www.nexttv.com/news/fcc-grants-fox-another-temporary-waiver-for-wwor-tvnew-york-post Questions: 1.If its newspaper/broadcast rule eventually dismantles + FOX has to put up WWOR, will WWOR survive as is (under new owner) or basically merge into WNYW + be broadcast virtually from NYW's stick. ("my9" on 5.3?) Where could My9 go if so? 2. What final resolution you think it'd be made on the
  7. according to tapatalk's Puerto Rico forums, its promos no longer identify as "univision puerto rico" only 'univision'. I wonder is it just coincidence or some changes to come? Perhaps simplify branding as 'Univision'. Examples: https://www.facebook.com/367675533729/videos/200906951623036 https://www.facebook.com/367675533729/videos/2325310110948357
  8. We have to take into consideration, it's an NBC station in DAVENPORT, IOWA. Not New York, L.A, Chicago or home markets of those noted teams. Each market has different needs. Although it's owned by a conglomerate, it's a small station serving a small but I'm sure tight-knit community. At a time when communities depend on the media in need more than ever, from the same colleagues who are also basically neighbors to them, it's understandable why they made the decision. I think even at a short notice, they could've told the plan a bit in advance + promote NBC sports app a bit much as well. I
  9. I don't know if it was posted before but the very first FOX NFL Sunday 9/4/94. Some differences aside, what's the saying: "the more things change..." *Young Kevin Harlen Alert btw*
  10. Caught in Providence, which just ended its syndie run past September, has been added to its primetime lineup at Law&Crime Network, started Monday, Nov. 16. No word if new episodes would be on deck or just reruns. Its YT page though have recent clips produced during the pandemic. https://tvnewscheck.com/article/255976/caught-in-providence-joins-lawcrime-network/
  11. I like it how WABC put their special touch in their breaking news re: trebek, led by its main anchor no less. Knowing that 7 carried J! basically since its start, it's genius.
  12. It started at 9pm last night but YT treasure Retrontario put up a livestream of classic CityTV show 'Speakers Corner'. Classic. TorontoTV. If you stay longer, there's a citypulse newscast circa 1989 with commercials. Watch out for Monika Deol. Whew. I wonder if we would see a revival of sorts in times like these. Maybe not in the COVID era, but still...it's on LIVE still + looping. Watch it when you can, not sure if it'll be archived for replay.
  13. Former Cincinnati Red + Color Analyst for ESPN Sunday night Baseball for 22 years, Joe Morgan passed away Sunday at 77. Baseball has been hit hard recently with Hall of Fame losses such as Tom Seaver, Bob Gibson, Lou Brock + Whitey Ford. https://awfulannouncing.com/espn/joe-morgan-hall-of-fame-baseball-player-acclaimed-broadcaster-passes-away-at-77.html
  14. Syndie updates from Gotham City: WCBS: Man must be good to be CBS in recent years in terms of syndie. Major Crimes moves from WNYW/WWOR, replacing Leverage, air early Sun. at 2:35a. Made in Hollywood air early Mon. at 2:35a WNBC: Not much changes to report. Ditto on NBC O&Os in terms of syndie changes. Though the future of Ellen remains to be seen. WNYW: 25 Words or Less at 6:30p, EXTRA at 7p, TMZ at 7:30p all at 9/14 WABC: Murdoch Mysteries out of syndie, but repeats can be seen on ION plus. Other than 'LIVE', Tamron + WNT Encores with Dayt
  15. I know we're not supposed to take Rich seriously but when he said "....goodbye to that awful 80's K-TEL music and on that front alone, hallelujah" re: Instant Classics, i'm like, bitch please, K-Tel wished it sounded as good as IC, even when KRON's own outlived its useful life, instead of simply an artifact of a worn down discotheque. Have some seats, please. *End rant* Oh, and Thanks for coming to my TED Talk. Just saying.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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/
  19. 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.p
  20. 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
  21. 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 i
  22. 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
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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
