  1. Yep. I don’t see Hogan leaving WRAL for TEGNA. They should’ve never botched the Revish transition by moving Hogan to weekends and bringing in Scalia. Hogan and Harris would have been a great pairing. I am speculating here, but I have a feeling we could see Mark Taylor pop up on 10TV. He gained a following at WCMH, and if he was planning a move to WBNS, it puts his weekend demotion and non-renewal into context. WBNS always poaches talent from the others. Even if Dispatch is no longer in control, this still seems like a possibility. https://mobile.twitter.com/MarkTaylor/status/1278013879067586561
  2. WKRC announces its "B" team: https://local12.com/news/local/local-12-names-afternoon-co-anchors Adam Clements had been pushing hard for a promotion, serving this role in an interim capacity after Brad Johansen left and when Kyle Inskeep took a 6-week leave of absence last year (after Rob Braun left the station). He settled for a "breaking news anchor" role on Good Morning Cincinnati - so it's good to see him get a legit promotion.
  3. Off topic, but I wish Pizza Hut pizza still looked (and tasted) like it did in those commercials...
  4. Cincinnati is a bewildering market. WLWT has a very strong primary anchor team, sharp presentation and a very good approach. I wonder how close the demographic ratings are, because I’m not sure how WLWT can go from 1st to 3rd/4th in the course of a sweeps period. Perhaps it’s viewers who’ve “come back” to local news due to the pandemic, and go back to old habits? Cleveland is a cluster. It’s a race to the bottom, and at this point WKYC and WOIO are leading the way to the bottom. WEWS seems to have the consistency it really hasn’t had in years. It was smart to have Danita Harris go back to mornings. I will be curious to see who replaces her in the evenings permanently. Tracy Carloss has been there almost 20 years and Homa Bash actually came back to Cleveland (to be with her eventual husband), so I think both of them will be around a lot longer. As for WOIO - they’ve sucked all personality out of the station. It feels like a cheap rip-off of its “Action News” days. Even with slick graphics, a bunch of cheap talent and no-name personalities aren’t doing the station any favors. (I know Romona Robinson and Mark Nolan was an attempt to get “names” to the station. But they had their own stable of popular personalities/solid journalists they should’ve kept - Sharon Reed (really!), Lynna Lai, Danielle Serino, David Whitman, etc.) WKYC - Argh. I’ve discussed this at length but I can barely stand it. Russ Mitchell must have drank the Kool-Aid or has no pull there. And Jay Crawford is a waste of money. Sara Shookman was doing fine, no need for Laura Caso...and Betsy Kling is seriously at the point of overexposure. It’s a mess.
  5. I know! I'd sent him a tip on the 11 Alive logo when it was updated, but he didn't use it.
  6. UnderConsideration Brand New - a site that review logos from a true "identity/graphic design" standpoint -reviewed the WTSP logo. https://www.underconsideration.com/brandnew/archives/new_logo_and_identity_for_10_tampa_bay_by_matchstic.php Apparently, the design crowd loves it...
  7. WKRC’s John Lomax going part-time after 30 years anchoring the morning newscast: https://www.wvxu.org/post/wkrc-tvs-john-lomax-finally-gets-sleep I imagine management is breathing a sigh of relief after losing their primary anchor (each there for at least 30 years before leaving) team last year.
  8. Me too. Per the “May Pandemic Sweeps” thread, KDKA continues to perform well in the ratings. If contracts weren’t an issue, perhaps they should’ve asked Stacy Smith to “retire” instead? Does Kristine Sorensen take the slot, or do they hire young and cheap?
  9. Those are household ratings, per the article: I'll be curious to see if demos change anything - especially since WLWT was gaining momentum up until now... (And has a better product, but that's another topic!)
  10. If you go to her page and click “Page Transparency” - you can see that one FB account is running her page, and there are several ads running. Looks like she may be doing it? Fox 8 ran some sponsored ads last year, featuring a contest to have lunch with Kenny Crumpton. The comments were interesting...
  11. That open...the best photo of “Acadiana” they could use was a parking garage?!
  12. From Robin Swoboda:
  13. The set is live. Standard issue Hearst set.

    She is still there - it must have been her TEGNA furlough week. https://mobile.twitter.com/LauraReports?ref_src=twsrc^google|twcamp^serp|twgr^author
  15. And In-Sink is an interesting choice - it followed Lauren Lowery from WISH!
