  1. Based on the broadcast rotation over the past 13 years - CBS, Fox, and NBC - with Super Bowl LIII on CBS, why is Super Bowl LV on CBS again instead of NBC? I researched further. NBC now has both Super Bowl LVI and the 2022 Winter Olympics.
  2. Would discussion and construction of new sets for "The View" and "Live with Kelly and Ryan" be put on hold until the move?
  3. I remember the spacious Election Night 2018 set that ABC News used. Could ABC News be getting ready for the upcoming 2020 presidential election season?
  4. On yesterday's Pittsburgh Today Live (Tuesday, December 17th, 2019), KDKA is building a new set for Nightly Sports Call "Sports Bar" with a new and improved kitchen set for Pittsburgh Today Live to debut in early January 2020.
  5. In the competitive Pittsburgh market, KDKA continues to be on top with WPXI and WTAE each sharing equally coming in 2nd throughout the day. https://www.post-gazette.com/ae/tv-radio/2019/12/03/Tuned-In-KDKA-WTAE-WPXI-November-TV-news-sweeps-2019/stories/201912030026
  6. Long-time meteorologist Kevin Benson is no longer at WPXI Pittsburgh. https://www.post-gazette.com/ae/tv-radio/2019/11/19/Tuned-In-Kevin-Benson-out-at-WPXI-TV-DUI/stories/201911190090
  7. It's hard to believe that it's been over twenty-five years since Bill Martin worked at WPXI Channel 11 Pittsburgh.
  8. KDKA Pittsburgh said farewell on-air to twenty-four staff members on Friday.
  9. Classic Network (1976). The Network News Hour The Howard Beale Show. The theme is used several times and is at 2:15 in the following clip: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=37nkErzdTOA
  10. Instead of the Wednesday - Thursday schedule on FOX during previous seasons, American Idol was on a Sunday - Monday schedule on ABC this past season.
  11. Live with Kelly and Ryan's Ryan Seacrest flew back and forth between New York and Los Angeles for three months during American Idol earlier this year. It looks like Ryan will do the same next year as well.
  12. KDKA-TV Pittsburgh announced two new hires on Friday: http://www.post-gazette.com/ae/tv-radio/2018/10/19/Tuned-In-Former-WTAE-meteorologist-returns-KDKA-TV-hires-news-director/stories/201810190108
  13. Since Jay Howell became vice president and general manager at KDKA-TV, staff updates over the past month regarding Dave Crawley, Marty Griffin, and Anne Linaberger: http://www.post-gazette.com/ae/tv-radio/2018/08/04/dave-crawley-regatta-flugtag-injury-kdka/stories/201808040101 http://www.post-gazette.com/ae/tv-radio/2018/08/13/Marty-Griffin-leaves-KDKA-TV-news/stories/201808130115 http://www.post-gazette.com/ae/tv-radio/2018/08/20/KDKA-TV-news-director-Anne-Linaberger-exits-Pittsburgh/stories/201808200141
  14. Almost three years later, has any other station built a set similar in design to the one KDKA currently has?
  15. Not sure if this is the proper sub-forum for this: For on-location, what purpose do color covers on cameras serve? For example, blue covers on cameras at the rink for figure skating at the Olympics to match the blue surrounding the rink, green covers on cameras at Wimbledon, etc. Why have on-air personalities started wearing two ear pieces instead of one ear piece?
