  1. Something tells me that WSMV and other NBC affiliates have been waiting for the arrival of NBC News Daily to hype up their station as having “Fifteen Non-Stop Hours of News”, and WSMV has the perfect voice over for it, Scott Chapin. Actually, it’s really 14.5 hours, as this News block currently begins at 4:30am.

    Unfortunately, this was a face I grew up with, while growing up in Boston: Former WBZ-TV meteorologist Bruce Schwoegler dies at 80 - CBS Boston (cbsnews.com)
  3. Speaking Of break ins, is that Really what viewers have been wanting?

    In Memoriam

    Aside from the Dodgers, I’m sure his famous moment came when he was the play by play announcer for the 1986 World Series on NBC, Especially when it came to game 6. After Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner botched that famous catch resulting in the Mets winning it, Scully uttered a more famous quote three minutes after that moment that went: ”If One picture is worth a thousand words, you have seen about a million words”, and there’s more to that quote.
  5. Yeah, I also think Elliot Rodriguez stinks. He can’t hold a candle to Antonio Mora. Honestly, I’m asking how the hell he is still on CBS4. Must be Nepotism. M-Fin’ Nepotism. The moment he’s finally gone, likely by retirement, I’ll start watching CBS 4 again.
  6. Neither do I, but apparently, this is America, and it’s all about greed. Honestly, if TV is nothing But News, I really don’t see how this makes America the greatest country in the world. Anyone loving all these newscasts must have about as much personality as a slab of wood.
  7. Whether or not we are, I’d rather ask myself Not whether America really needs all these newscasts, but rather whether Americans WANT them? Are Americans really asking for the end of syndication as we know it?
  8. In the West Palm Beach DMA, I can tell you that Jennifer Hudson is airing at 3pm on WPBF, where Dr.Oz(later the Good Dish) aired. My guess is the debut of a 4pm newscast in Ellen’s soon to be former time slot. Also, I’m Guessing WPTV will air Sherri Shepherd against Jennifer Hudson, but anything goes.
  9. Honestly, I’m not even sure how it lasted as long as it did on the NBC affiliate in West Palm Beach, WPTV, since 2014.
  10. Actually, I’m guessing that the KRON isn’t a mistake. I think KNTV in San Francisco might follow suit with KNBC and start a 3pm news of Their own.
  11. Speaking of Test runs, I have a question. If an American version of the UK hit game show Pointless were considered for syndication, and it was an hour long, just like its British counterpart, but with commercials, would you watch it? Or would you rather watch coverage of a mass shooting instead? And please be honest. If I worked in television, I would pitch Pointless for the CBS owned stations. What day you?
  12. Am I the only one who thinks XFL 2020 deserved better than five weeks? You know something, I’m upset that XFL 2020 is dead and never returning with the 2020 logo. It should in 2023, nothing should change.
  13. I’m not so sure about why they needed to change the logo. It makes me wonder why no good could come out of just leaving the logo alone.
  14. She announced this on the 36th anniversary of when she joined News Channel 5: https://www.wptv.com/about-us/kelley-dunn-announces-retirement-after-36-years-at-wptv?_amp=true
  15. I hope the Meredith graphics don’t get replaced by graphics used by the former Raycom stations, and if they do, I absolutely hope None of you say Good Riddance to the Meredith graphics. IMO, replacing the Meredith graphics with the Post-Raycom graphics would be a horrible downgrade.
  16. Speaking Of WPBF, is it me, or does WPBF really Hate abc? I ask because they've been pre-empting primetime shows a lot, especially this past summer, and fall of 2020. I wonder if there is anything about abc that is getting under the skin of WPBF.
  17. Kinda curious to know if the trouble involving Ellen herself is why her show moved to mornings. Also, I Still can’t stand the narrator since the 2020-21 season of hot bench, Christopher Thomas. I miss Rino Romano.
  18. This leaves only CBSN Miami. When will that Ever come into fruition?
  19. I'm sorry, but I do Not like the new logo. It is atrocious. I agree with iron lion, the previous logo was Way better. This ewww logo is a step backwards, IMO.
  20. With so many stations in the EST and PST Time Zones debuting local news at 7pm, it would seem that stations that have aired Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy! back to back in the 7pm hour might have to end this tradition of doing so to compete, even as both shows approach season 40. Your thoughts?
  21. Speaking of branding, I fear WPTV might be doing away with the "News Channel 5" branding, and renaming themselves as WPTV News. This Friday, the 23rd, they're debuting a new 7pm newscast called "WPTV News at 7pm". Not liking these generic names.
  22. Am I the only reader on this site actually hoping for those stations to be sold to Cox, instead of Gray? I, too, don’t want to see the Meredith graphics hub destroyed. I hope someone else has the Heart to resurrect it if it Is destroyed.
  23. I’m sorry, but I still think XFL deserved better. If it’s never coming back, it’ll be because of COVID.
  24. WPTV currently carries MeTV on 5.2, and it is in a market with a Hearst station for a rival, WPBF, carrying EstrellaTV on 25.2 and True Crime on 25.3. WPTV, meanwhile, could replace Laff on 5.3 with MeTV Plus. Needless to say Laff also airs on WPXP 67.4
  25. In fact, five other ABC O&Os have replaced Laff with thisTv. Only KTRK and KFSN still carry Laff on .3’s.
