  1. As of today, the double run of Person, Place or Thing and Dateline have swapped timeslots on KTTV (L.A. Fox O&O), with the former moving to 1:00 and 1:30 PM and the latter moving to 11:30 PM.
  2. Almost a month late, but found this: https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2023/9/12/a-bad-rap?format=amp West Coast News Wrap, a half-hour newscast taken from the feeds of West Coast stations, launched last month on KTVU in the San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose market, then last night (10/2) the program premiered on KTTV/KCOP in Los Angeles. Fox Television plans to expand the show to other West Coast O&Os, and may even offer it to affiliates. There’s even a YouTube channel for it:
  3. Is there a way to move @FiveNews’s post there?
  4. Spectrum Cable could lose Disney-owned channels.
  5. I just noticed the new ABC logo on KABC in Los Angeles on the 11:00 PM newscast tonight. The rest of the graphics haven’t changed yet.

    In Memoriam

    Longtime KABC-TV Los Angeles reporter John North died this past Sunday at age 78.
  7. The “Fox 5 San Diego and “NBC 7 San Diego” monikers are derived from those stations’ channel slots on the cable systems in that market. The “branding by cable channel” thing is also a trend in other markets, such as Palm Springs, CA, and Ft. Myers, FL. I’d provide examples of stations from each market that engage in this practice, but I don’t want to turn this into the dreaded list thread.
  8. I’ve also seen that they only have the time/temp on for morning and midday newscasts now, no longer on the the long-established prime time block or late news. Haven’t checked the 4:00 PM on 9 or the 5:00–6:30 PM on 2. That’s a step backward, in my view, because the other news-producing stations in L.A. (KTLA, KABC, KTTV, KMEX, KVEA) have it on for every newscast (and have done so for more than a decade) while the only other one not have it on the late news is KNBC (except, inexplicably, on Saturday nights).
  9. I agree with @MichiganNewsGraphicsJunkie, who isn’t harming anyone. When people post these types of things, it’s not like the sky is falling. Everything in moderation, including moderation. Take a chill pill.
  10. Until KDOC flipped to religious programming, both stations shared the local syndication rights to the Seinfeld reruns, with KCOP airing two episodes in the 10:00 PM spot, with KDOC airing the same episodes in the 11:00 PM slot.
  11. I wonder where all the court shows are gonna go?
  12. Their news director is leaving as of July 1. https://tvnewscheck.com/journalism/article/kttv-news-director-erica-hill-rodriquez-leaving/
  13. KCBS-KCAL is getting a new ND: https://tvnewscheck.com/journalism/article/mike-dello-stritto-named-kcbs-kcal-news-director/
  14. Crossposted from the Los Angeles News section: Patrick Healy is retiring from KNBC channel 4. His last day is December 31. https://www.nbclosangeles.com/community/veteran-television-broadcaster-patrick-healy-retires-from-nbc4-after-nearly-forty-years/2769800/?_osource=SocialFlowFB_LABrand&fbclid=IwAR1I6q7mbroAnyntY0Nq_4af85mcV5OITWipCG3ZK8_norEq_npA1iHVhgw
  15. Patrick Healy is retiring after almost 40 years. His last day is December 31. https://www.nbclosangeles.com/community/veteran-television-broadcaster-patrick-healy-retires-from-nbc4-after-nearly-forty-years/2769800/?_osource=SocialFlowFB_LABrand&fbclid=IwAR1I6q7mbroAnyntY0Nq_4af85mcV5OITWipCG3ZK8_norEq_npA1iHVhgw
  16. Not sure if this belongs here or merits its own thread, but Joel Vilmenay has been named GM of KCBS/KCAL. He comes from WDSU-TV in New Orleans. He starts October 18. https://tvnewscheck.com/business/article/joel-vilmenay-named-gm-of-cbss-l-a-duopoly/
  17. Peter Saiers to become KTLA’s ND on April 21: https://ktla.com/community/veteran-journalist-peter-saiers-named-ktla-news-director/
  18. Dish is involved in seven different carriage disputes at this time. That number could grow to eight if a new deal between the satellite TV provider and the Cox Media Group, which owns 18 stations in 10 markets, isn’t reached by 7 PM ET on October 1. https://tvanswerman.com/2020/09/29/dish-could-lose-even-more-channels-this-week/
  19. Dave Lopez is retiring from the KCBS/KCAL duopoly in Los Angeles. His last day on air is June 30.
  20. I just noticed that the sticky thread titled “I HATE LISTS” is gone. What does this mean?
