  1. I can confirm KXAS is getting a refresh. Just in time for sweeps, the Winter Olympics, and the Super Bowl. It should debut soon.
  2. If I were a betting man, I'd say the first week of February for sweeps. The DFW market should be interesting to watch for next month. WFAA isn't the only station in that market getting a set change.
  3. The source routed into the MAX computer (usually a skycam) was looking at itself via PCR or MCR.
  4. This package has major KWTV/KOTV vibes. It's not bad, kinda clunky in terms of animation on lower thirds, but it works.
  5. It's no surprise that since Sinclair has taken over WOAI, that it has gotten preferential treatment over KABB. When the graphics do launch, you'll notice that the standard package would have indeed looked better on KABB given that the FOX 29 logo already fits the color scheme. Want to guess the color scheme for the hybrid package? Look no further than the color scheme on WOAI's logo.
  6. KABB is getting a hybrid package, and it's taking longer to iron out the bugs since they're the only station that is going to have it in the group. I suspect y'all will probably hate it, but stay tuned.
  7. Shareholders have re-elected all 12 TEGNA directors. https://tvnewscheck.com/article/top-news/248363/shareholders-re-elect-all-12-tegna-directors/ This campaign lead by Kim was ill-timed and honestly, comes off as desperate. I'm glad the shareholders saw that. I'd go a step further and say that Kim is responsible for the furloughs due to the cost TEGNA had to endure to hire advisory firms, etc, but this is out of my area of expertise so I'll leave it at that.
  8. The scolding continues from another advisory firm: https://tvnewscheck.com/article/top-news/248085/egan-jones-recommends-tegna-director-nominees/
  9. The current TEGNA board appears to be receiving a lot of support: https://tvnewscheck.com/article/top-news/248020/advisory-firm-recommends-tegnas-nominees/ https://www.reuters.com/article/us-tegna-standardgeneral/proxy-adviser-iss-backs-standard-general-nominee-brown-at-tegna-idUSKBN21Z2BJ?il=0 https://www.reuters.com/article/us-tegna-standardgeneral/ariel-investments-says-backs-tegna-in-fight-with-standard-general-idUSKCN21V2BK The vote takes place next Thursday.
  10. Spoiler alert: there isn't a single bank that is going to back/finance a transaction as big as what TEGNA is worth because of the current pandemic that has essentially caused our economy to collapse. Which is why Gray and Apollo dropped their bids. Nobody had to jump through hoops for anything. And yes, it was COVID-19 that ended those talks.
  11. I can't wait for all this to blow up in Soo Kim's face.
  12. They switched back because the school closures part of the Newsroom Solutions Ticker/Prime wasn't/isn't done being built.
  13. I'm not entirely sure. Air Comfort Solutions, the company, is a big spender in advertising. It could be that there was another suitor willing to pay more, so a name change may be on the horizon again. For now, it's just Chopper 4 again. I'm no longer there, so I can't say for certain. As a side note, Air Comfort Solutions Chooper 4 was a mouthful and I was never a fan of that brand.
  14. It appears every two-weeks starting Thursday, February 27 will be rollout dates for the remaining Tribune stations until the end of June. Also, the first group of stations will be getting their websites changed over on Monday.
  15. I think the biggest takeaway from this article is that Apollo does not intend to keep the CMG properties. That said, these Hedge fund companies can stick it where the sun don't shine.
