  1. Update of WRDE's new studio and set. In the meantime, they are simulcasting WBOC's 6pm & 11pm newscasts until they are fully prepared.
  2. Let's see the list so far of weather personalities from other ABC O&Os who have been to 7 Lincoln Square this year. KABC KGO (Spencer Christian) KSFN KTRK WLS WPVI (Karen Rogers x2) WTVD Next up: Who knows?
  3. You don't want to go to court for that.
  4. When I tuned in around 3pm, all NYC news stations was on including WNYW, WXTV, NY1, and News 12 BK/BX. I was impressed with N12 and WXTV with their live coverage usually they rarely show up. On the other hand, NY1 spent way too much tv time on anchors and reporters in the studio instead of showing videos and pictures plus they were bragging about themselves about Gov. Cuomo (who was closer to the area due an event he was attending nearby) talking to them before Mayor DeBlasio (who came back from Iowa early in the morning and was at City Hall when it happened). Case in point:
  5. Just drove by the Broadcast Plaza, they have construction fences around the property and the WWOR sign is still up.
  6. The only Jersey centric show they really have is "New Jersey Now", a half-hour public affairs show hosted by WWOR's Vice President/Station Manager Dianne Doctor. "Chasing News" doesn't even know if wants to be a NJ or NY show. They're airing more NY stories, there is (only one) billboard in the Bronx (probably the only advertising outside of MY 9), I'm not sure what "Chasing News" is chasing anymore.
  7. A bad spot to cut off words.
  8. On the same day of discovery of Todd's death WPLG got new graphics. At least he's riding the "10 Taxi" up above.
  9. Since January '96, they been known as "CBS 58" since December '94. This is the current open:
  10. I saw this on a billboard on the Cross Bronx, WNJU is calling themselves #1 regardless of language and in all key demos for two months in a row. Their evening and 11pm newscast was ranked #1 in english and spanish language. Unfortunately, they are no numbers of any kind to judge the rest of the market but WABC did not post anything touting their ratings. https://www.nbcumv.com/news/telemundo-47-concludes-may-ratings-period-1-station-new-york-regardless-language-and-all-key?show=1067341&network=5266626
  11. Bear with me while I use "The Ladies Man" movie and Prince as an example. Millionaire before the music change, the first set of questions supposed to be lively and loose and to get everyone in the mood to get to know the contestant in the hot seat. Then when you get to the $25,000-$32,000 range, it dawns on everyone this is not gonna be a cakewalk. And then, when you reach the million dollar question, the pressure and the music makes you and everyone watching very very tense and the edge of their seat. (Unless you're John Carpenter.) Now the only left for Millonaire to do is to... Honestly, I thought Regis & Meredith was the best hosts with Cedric & Chris was decent enough to hold their own and Terry...yeah.
  12. News 12 and WXTV have teamed up to provide a five minute spanish language news and weather updates twice a day on the weekdays for the News 12's digital platforms called "Noticias Nueva York por News 12" (News New York by News 12). https://www.rbr.com/noticias-12-nueva-york-uni-alt/ http://bronx.news12.com/story/40474760/univision-new-york-news-12-partner-to-bring-spanishlanguage-news-updates-to-viewers-throughout-the-tristate-area The topicals are seen on News12's twitter are in english. https://twitter.com/News12BX/status/1128834953406550017
  13. Especially on the weekends but that’s a different story. Had to post my pics as well even though I’m on vacation in Savannah right now as I’m posting this.
  14. "Here's the 5 day forecast with "the weekend always in view"." The good thing is it's only a 5 day forecast with "the weekend always in view." Now they need new L3's and they might have something decent here.
  15. Jeff did the weekend mornings this week and Lee is filling in for Jeff tonight. They even put Karen's twitter handle on air Fun fact: It was an reunion of sorts as Joe Torres was working at WPVI ('92-'96) when Karen started in '96 before he went to WABC a few months later. https://twitter.com/karenrogers6abc/status/1122313097979531264
  16. Open: (Weather graphics remain the same).
  17. They got new graphics as well, only weather and sports still has the old graphics. (Pictures ahead.)
  18. Video of the new set party: https://www.univision.com/local/nueva-york-wxtv/inaugura-noticias-univision-41-su-nuevo-estudio-de-tv-video
  19. I saw a promo the set will debut this Wednesday.
  20. Neither. On the weekends, weather is outsourced to the Univision Weather Hub in Houston since 2017. Weekdays are still done in-house in Teaneck, NJ. http://www.insideradio.com/free/skies-the-limit-for-univision-s-new-weather-center/article_eaf81e30-3555-11e7-b619-d71adf7a054e.html https://www.newscaststudio.com/setstudio/univision-weather-hub/
  21. The official logo, TENGAifed. And the 6 o'clock open.
