    The Fox 29 News/Good Day Philadelphia Thread

    And that's a wrap on Iain Paige who will move on from WTXF at the end of the month after 6 years with the station http://www.philly.com/entertainment/tv/iain-page-leaves-fox--20190108.html Now if only they can somehow make Lucy exclusive to the 11pm show I might try watching their 10pm again

    The Fox 29 News/Good Day Philadelphia Thread

    It looks like WTXF has launched a version of KSAZ's "News Now" rolling news stream on their Youtube page. I saw Steve Keeley post a screenshot from it yesterday and I believe they start streaming when Good Day ends at 10 with an undetermined end time based on the last few days' streams archived on the page. Actually, scrolling back on their YT page it appears this actually launched on July 11th. I stream Good Day every morning and have seen zero mention of this on-air or during breaks.

    The Fox 29 News/Good Day Philadelphia Thread

    Yesterday was apparently Dave Schratwieser's last day. I didn't catch the evening shows to see if anything was done but he did stop by Good Day for a retrospective and look down memory lane

    2018-19 Syndication News

    Apologies to Philly outlier and fierce independent WFMZ who are picking up "Pickler & Ben" for a 9am run to replace "Harry".

    2018-19 Syndication News

    early Philly report from TitanTV: KYW gets a double run of Face the Truth at 9 & 9:30 am, displacing The Doctors (which also recently had its afternoon run dropped in favor of a newscast) WPHL lists TBA at 4pm with the loss of Crime Watch Daily. Another interesting note is Jerry Springer is still listed at 1pm which would air concurrently with the Springer launch on CW daytime on WPSG. WTXF lists TBA at 2pm with the loss of Harry. Since there's no sign of The Doctors on KYW sister station WPSG, this seems like a likely landing spot after the Dr. Oz 1pm run (please tell me there's a station somewhere out there running a "Doc Block" with these shows).

    NBC News to Create Streaming Channel

    ABC News has a stream carrying breaking/"moments ago" video along with taped pieces from their other properties (complete with a news update L-bar) and vintage "from the vault" stories at https://abcnews.go.com/live. I believe they're typically live weekday afternoons, much in the same vein as CBSN
  9. http://www.tribunemedia.com/tribune-media-terminates-merger-agreement-with-sinclair-broadcast-group-inc-files-lawsuit-for-breach-of-contract/ “In light of the FCC’s unanimous decision, referring the issue of Sinclair’s conduct for a hearing before an administrative law judge, our merger cannot be completed within an acceptable timeframe, if ever,” said Peter Kern, Tribune Media’s Chief Executive Officer. “This uncertainty and delay would be detrimental to our company and our shareholders. Accordingly, we have exercised our right to terminate the Merger Agreement, and, by way of our lawsuit, intend to hold Sinclair accountable.”

    Pelley out at CBS Evening News

    For your consideration... "The CBS Evening News... with Bill O'Reilly- We DO IT LIVE!" If they're so hard up for ratings

    PHL17 under Sinclair

    As rumors become reality, I'm curious as to what's likely to change with WPHL. If they stick to outsourcing the newscast, they couldn't force 6 to run Sinclair pieces/commentary during the 10, could they? Is big Sin up for dumping 6 and expanding the droplet of a news organization 17 has for the morning show? Ring of Honor wrestling is likely to start airing (apparently), along with their Sunday morning newsmagazine. Are there any other Sinclair shows likely to wind up on 17? And the subchannel situation- are we likely going to see TBD end up on .5? So many possibilities...

    NBC 10 Thread

    Blowing in from the windy city's FOX 32 is Tammie Souza who will be handling "evening meteorologist" duties, which I guess means she'll be filling Sheena's shoes https://twitter.com/3KETalent/status/816782142847926272
