  1. WLII-TV in Caguas, San Juan PR was sold to Lieberman Media Group in mid 2020 when Univision had some stake bought up by Hemisphere Media, which are owners of WAPA-TV Channel 4. In order to the transaction to be approved, Univision was required to divest 3 TV stations in Puerto Rico. WLI, WSUR and WOLE. Univision also owns WSTE Channel 7 where all their programming has been moved to. In October 17, 2014 during a round of cuts, Univision shut down the News Department and laid off over 100 reporters, anchors, technicians, photojournalists and producers. WLII had the #1 News Department
  2. Awesome to read that. CBS This Morning IS a good product. Congratulations to all the folks working in front and behind the scenes.
  3. Any word on who Pam Chen is going to name as successor of Michelle Tuzee?
  4. That's such sad news. When I lived in NY, I loved seeing her in Today in NY. Always very professional and such a joy to see. May her memory be a blessing.
  5. Also to keep in mind that Daniel McElroy, the Lightning Director of KCBS that passed away recently, had helped a few of the stations that got the new set with their lights and from what was mentioned, he was helping KPIX with their lights.
  6. For some reason it reminds me of the WTVJ 2012 theme
  7. Scott Jones reported this yesterday: https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2021/2/3/will-cbs-be-dunn-and-unfriended-on-friday Hmm it seems that my hunch was correct about Jay Howell being trash like Dunn & Friend. It definitely seems that when Dunn & Friend are terminated, Howell should be one of the first GM heads to roll as well. And maybe bring someone outside from CBS to be the O&O President. Or if they do promote someone from with-in, it should be either from WBBM's Derek Dalton or KCNC's Walt DeHaven. Hell or give Brien Kennedy the job. He brought up his con
  8. Such a class act. We shall overcome, Ukee. Blessed be my friend.
  9. Peter Dunn is the cancer of the O&O stations. If Peter's head rolls, don't put it past ViacomCBS -being the competent bunch they are- promoting Jay Howell to Peter's job. CBS O&O's are long overdue for a major management shake up. Friend is a schmuck and Dunn is trash. Time to take out the trash.
  10. Found this gem, that I had been looking for YEARS, in Mike Parson's YouTube Channel. This rare cut of KNBC's LA Groove Theme used for closing the Channel 4 News weekend.
  11. CBS 2 and KCAL 9 reported a few days ago that their lighting director passed away due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. Here is Pat Harvey announcing his passing and reading a short biography of him. https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/2020/12/17/danny-mcelroy-longtime-cbs2-kcal9-lighting-director-passes-away-from-covid-19/?fbclid=IwAR3KdABYXKUj4EOm1Mvxy5b5qgpBUnZO9qPB_dYGlWOuJtoLugkTvvUUamQ
  12. Telemundo 47 is reporting the passing of Edgardo Del Villar, their 6 &11pm weekday anchor. He passed after a multiple year battle with brain cancer, at just 50 years old. Here is a short video montage from the station, in Spanish: https://www.telemundo47.com/noticias/local/fallece-el-entranable-presentador-edgardo-del-villar/2126259/ He leaves behind his wife and little daughter. May his memory be a blessing for his family and his colleagues at T47.
  13. She's going to continue whacking the news budget that Tara Finestone did not want to do, plain and simple. KCBS had enough news managers that could've been promoted to VP of News. Pat Harvey gotta watch her back now.
  14. Telemundo plans for Decisión 2020: https://tvnewscheck.com/article/255144/noticias-telemundo-sets-multiplatform-election-coverage-plans/
