  1. From what I have been reading as well, Michael Melling is a narcisist sociopath that loves to cut budgets and doesn't care about journalism at all, only about the spreadsheets. A very stupid move. But it was coming since Wendy Freeman was demoted from President, CTV News to VP News. Melling wanted to break up the pairing of Hwang and LaFlamme by "promoting" Rosa Hwang as the VP of News for CTV Toronto and CP24, which Ms. Hwang clearly did not want. Melling is another Rafael Lenin Lopez and will continue to inflict damage to CTV News.
  2. That might be what NBC is preparing the stations for. Telemundo 49 in Tampa also got a new building as well, with all state of the art equipment and studios as well.
  3. Telemundo 31 in Orlando moved into their new building recently, but they did a WBBM and moved the news department last to the new building. Here is the open and a partial view of the desk and video wall. It reminds me of a mix of KDKA and WSCV. Telemundo 31 uploaded a few pictures to their instagram as well. https://www.instagram.com/p/CewqU2POfAG/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
  4. Kris Habermehl returns to CBS 2. Jim Williams posted on FB a picture of both and the following "Can’t tell you how happy we are to welcome back Kris Habermehl to CBS Chicago. He’s a brilliant broadcaster and a great guy."
  5. And adding to your point, if he doesn't change middle management (AND, EP mostly), the station won't be going anywhere fast. Scott Jones mentioned that KCBS/KCAL staffers were telling him that.
  6. Cesar Conde and Rashida Jones are trying to make MSNBC a more "hard news" cable channel. We'll see how it resonates with the viewers.
  7. They need to re-in vindicate Brien Kennedy and bring him back. He took a LOT of shit from UnFriend and DumbDunn. It's the least CBS can do.
  8. WBBM has been using those L3s for a while, even before KDKA. At least since December 2019.
  9. And most importantly, how to translate that into the weekday broadcast
  10. They do look weird. Hopefully when they move buildings, the systems there are better and run flawlessly.
  11. From the WABC Thread: Rob Nelson exits NewsNation.
  12. Nothing in sight for WTMO and the new package.
  13. They weren't that bad. I remember when they announced the new studio before they moved to 64 Carazo, that they would be having a set that was like the network news, and we ended up with the first incarnation of the set.
  14. Agreed. That main studio has been like that since Univision moved WLII to Guaynabo in 2010. So the studio is 11 years old. It was very well refreshed. Luckily Univision didn't throw away anything in 2014 when they closed WLII's news department.
