  1. I saw the new opening. Their News logo is not "News 4" logo anymore. That logo says "4 NBC News" like WNBC's confusing News 4 New York logo basically. I see why they delayed the new graphics so long.
  2. I really don't care what is going on behind the scenes. They spent years building up something that was overturned in less than 2 years. It looks unstable. They should keep the FTS graphics until either the FTS gets a new package thus forcing them to change to Nexstar graphics or the station is reacquired by FOX. They changed the weather radar font and they are still using the FTS package overall.
  3. Yeah I said in the past Nexstar is a mess. They replaced a barely 4 year news set because it was built by FTS. Let a boatload of talent to leave more any other station in the market in the past 18 months after years of work establishing their on-air news talent. Unnecessarily changed the website domain from "fox46charlotte.com" to "fox46.com". Now confusing branding, they wasting time with this bullsh*t attempt with those whack a** Nexstar graphics & "Fox Charlotte" branding, which are both trash, because they want to attempt to "de-foxify" the station identity and appearance. When sports
  4. Technically they are different because they are OTT broadcasters versus cable or paid TV channels. Unless Comcast wants to take over the broadcast licenses of all their OTT affiliates then it's not the same
  5. YouTube TV and NBC Universal are squabbling now. If it is not resolved by Thursday YouTubeTV is pulling all of their channels from the platform
  6. I highly doubt that's why the attempt to change the branding has not been made. It's a market research reason.
  7. They're still using the FOX46 branding. They'll probably a hybrid branding in the interim.
  8. For those that make these passive aggressive statements. I have my info from someone in the broadcast industry myself. The same source who predicted the new Fox O&O graphics launched in February 2020 on WJZY, the Orlando Fox & MyTV O&Os by Fox along with the aforementioned Sacramento, San Diego Fox affiliate properties for Nexstar as a future swap that has been seroiusly considered, to the fact that Charlotte still on the Fox network radar are known to those who work on this daily. I didn't make up anything, so if you disagree then go disagree with my source.
  9. Smart move...it's a major branding problem
  10. Go look it up on FOX46 website. It's listed on TitanTV via the FOX46 website. I never look up their or any Fox affiliates' schedule through Zap2it
  11. Access Hollywood will remain in WJZY & WMYT in the overnights
  12. Charlotte is too large and prominent of a city to have the "Carolinas" branding in the market. The 3 of the 4 South Carolina counties in their DMA are aligned with and apart of the Charlotte metro area. The Unifour is basically an extension of Charlotte these days and will covered, so the mountain counties outside of Watauga are really left out. However, they're not really populated outside of Watauga. The thought processes of Nexstar is why failure with this is imminent upon launching. Charlotte is not the Triangle nor the Triad, nor as it was 25+ years ago when the transient population was
  13. Yep, it makes the Fox affiliate of a major market looks small market. NewsNation will continue to get nothing in constantly forcing stations to promote an out-of-date product in 2021. I don't agree with Fox's over-the-air antics with their O&Os nor the FNC, but Charlotte is a better fit for an O&O than Nexstar bs that belongs in any market that's below the top 50 ranking. Watch the ratings drop falter with the unnecessary changes forcing another rebranding... WCCB might wind up as the O&O in the future.
  14. Iisha Scott left WCNC Charlotte to go to NBC 5 Chicago WMAQ https://twitter.com/wxbrad/status/1427391614041866241?s=19 WCNC did gain KJ Jacobs from WTRK https://www.wcnc.com/article/about-us/team-bios/kj-jacobs/275-27f75e2b-99c9-4636-8ddb-54e5fa594ab6
  15. They should add a 9AM hour and move that Dateline and 25 Words or Less back to WMYT while bringing back the Real and Dr Oz to WJZY
  16. I standby what I said earlier, WJZY & WMYT will be sold again is why what is going on with on-air talent departures. Nexstar only wants the stations because FTS was willing to pawn off for Seattle and Milwaukee Fox affiliates. Nexstar is cheap and bad for business in a rapidly growing, major market like Charlotte. It's why Nexstar is dismantling great locally recognized talent by ending or not renewing all of this valuable talent. You also going to continue seeing this newsroom set...
  17. I tried to download the WJZY news app again and its full of glitches and doesn't stream properly again. According to most reviewers on the Google Play store, they agree that WJZY news app is crap a year later still. Another disaster after another with this switch over from the FTS maintained to this Nexstar maintained app...
  18. I still don't believe it until I see consistency. I used to live in Atlanta for a decade so believe in oversampling errors, so until I see a trend then I stand by what I said.
  19. I'm aware of the rankings but there have times where undercounts and overcounts have occurred; as a result things were readjusted the following year(s). That's why I said won't believe it until the 2021-2022 ranks come out.
  20. You're comparing cheapskate Nexstar to Disney/ABC and NBC Universal O&Os? Uh no, as a matter fact hell no... It doesn't take long to rebuild a newscast set... Half the time Nexstar is so cheap they'll already bring in another deconstructed old set from another property with minor alterations like the city skyline, etc. If you want to believe otherwise, okay...
  21. Watch they never get a new newscast set and wind up broadcasting from the newsroom until they are sold again... This reeks of what happened to WFXT/Boston until it was pawned off to Cox. It's not a bad setup for a newscast newsroom set with the colored lighting, mounted monitors, and whatnot. However, this market is too damn big to be having such weird issues on rebuilding a new news set, pandemic or not. I think there was a decision higher up the Nexstar food chain to stop rebuilding the newscast set as there's something else in the works.
  22. I don't even believe Atlanta being #7 is legit. 2020-21 Nielsen rankings are likely going to be a flunk year of rankings because of the number of cord-cutting that occurred during the pandemic. Houston, Washington are bigger DMAs than Atlanta DMA...
  23. Not neccessarily, Nexstar is screwed in Charlotte because many of their deals cannot supercede existing syndication deals with other stations. The Goldbergs I believe airs on WAXN so they will likely remain there since the deal is already signed. Remember Nexstar is on borrowed time with the Charlotte duo... I'm taking bets that Kelly Clarkson will be moved back to WJZY @ 10AM (along with the Real @ 11AM or 2PM and Dr. Oz @ 11AM or 2PM) in the fall. WJZY knows that nobody watches that low-rated nonsense on air now in the 10-11AM, 2-4PM time slots. All of the court shows, Dateline
  24. It's hilarious how so many Georgians use Charlotte as their news career launchpad move to Atlanta but wind up right back in Charlotte in the end...
  25. Meh! I'm glad to see them using the Beyond theme on KCPQ, but I won't be satisfied until FTS right their wrong with the Charlotte duo stations.
