  1. KCNC GM Walt DeHaven leaving KCNC per FTVLive https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2021/6/10/this-denver-gm-is-headed-for-the-exit
  2. FOX 5 gave Lori the send off from the Morning News that WABC did not give her. https://www.fox5ny.com/video/940319
  3. WFTV's Eyewitness News at 11PM is also WFTV Tonight. I haven't checked it out yet though.
  4. It seems like CBS wants to compete and make News and O&O more viable and competitive. Wishing them both well and that they can rise and leverage CBS News in a better position.
  5. The dismantling of the MF/MM era. Sad though, their studio was really good though.
  6. About time. Hopefully they'll install permanent management that wants to compete, grow and solidify the O&O's and CBSN Local Operations. And god, please let them clean house starting with KCBS' own Jay Howell.

    In Memoriam

    KCBS/KCAL photographer Rodney Hunt passed away of COVID. FTVLive reports the passing here: https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2021/3/31/la-photographer-dies-from-covid
  8. FTV Live reported that Australia's 9 Network was struck by hackers, forcing it off the air. The attack affected the operations in Sydney. Video below, from 9 News. Could this happen in the near future to an US-based network? https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2021/3/29/network-knocked-off-the-air-in-cyberattack
  9. From all the years I have been following CTV News, and from what I have gathered from reading online newspapers and canadian forums, Bell keeps cutting their news gathering budget. This is from memory but I remember during 2012-2014 the yearly profit for CTV News was about $125M, consistently. So Bell ordered a $10 million cost cutting program to boost profits and "streamline" operations. You would expect the profit to go up for example, $5-7M, as they tout increased revenues and such, but the profit for the 2015 year was... $122.3M. So another round of layoffs was ordered. Same results next y
  10. And Bell keeps on cutting and gutting CTV. I kid you not, but every six months, the ax falls on CTV and the other media properties. It's ridiculous.
  11. 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
  12. Awesome to read that. CBS This Morning IS a good product. Congratulations to all the folks working in front and behind the scenes.
  13. Any word on who Pam Chen is going to name as successor of Michelle Tuzee?
  14. 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.
