    The live audience element of the third hour should continue, in my opinion — unless they already have other plans for 6A.
  2. I like how many here expect all the bells and whistles to be thrown at the viewer on day one. Literally everything about this facility is brand new to everyone involved — give them time to get comfortable before they get super creative.

    Hurricane Michael: Coverage/Operations

    Transmitter burn-in and testing.

    Hurricane Michael: Coverage/Operations

    Via antenna, I could still see their frequency test PSIP data and slate for the new frequency.

    That’s false. It’s been back since the 11th.

    Panama City Radio post-Michael

    Operationally they’re in great shape for having been through a Cat 4.999 Hurricane. All broadcast equipment is working perfectly. Yup, it’s a strange and abrupt end to the partnership, Powell really gave a big slap in the face to their employees, parenters and their listeners, especially now when local media is proving to be absolutely essential.

    Panama City Radio post-Michael

    WJHG and WMBB are *both* on the air. WMBB as of today and WJHG/WECP as of Thursday afternoon. Contrary to some stories I’ve seen, WJHG’s barely decade-old STL tower held up beautifully and is fully upright — STL dishes got blown out of alignment but it’s still hitting the transmitter site! NFL football currently on NBC, a necessary distraction. Biggest problems in the area are Verizon being unusable and cable/internet infrastructure. Power was the priority for crews obviously, and many of the cable lines had to be cut to support power restoration. I have a feeling it will be a while before home internet and TV access is available to everyone. Glad some people still have rabbit ears!
  8. Every NBC O&O is hubbed out of Centennial, CO, and they are no exception.

    WISH getting new set

    I think the reason it was poorly-lit is because it was still in the process of *being* lit. I saw a light meter in the photo, so that was sort of the giveaway...

    I can’t get over how ugly those handheld prompter controllers that TEGNA and FOX O&Os use. They’re literally all I can look at whenever I see them in use. You’d think due to their size they could motivate Autoscript to make a more discrete product.

    Short Teases or Long Teases?

    That’s a “style”. They always cut out of the open to the 2-shot or CU. They’ve been doing it that way since the 70’s so I imagine that’s a sort of “mandate” — now probably hard-coded through Ignite.

    NBC 10 Thread

  14. OK, the only thing missing for me to complete my TVNT Thread Bingo Card is someone mentioning what is in the copyright.

    The Channel 6 Action News Thread

    If there was nobody else around that was “on-air ready” except for the meteorologist, the weather person would have pulled double duty.
