  1. I suppose if they promote News Nation and WGN America on all of Nexstar's local stations properly, they might have a shot at surviving.
  2. Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere, my apologies if it has... Nexstar is launching a new 3-hour national news program on WGN America, based out of WGN-TV. https://www.wsj.com/articles/wgn-america-enters-cable-tv-news-arena-promising-no-opinions-11579093200?shareToken=stbc2f2e8fd7eb4719a4170c050900687f&reflink=share_mobilewebshare
  3. Did anyone grab the final moments of CLTV?
  4. Thanks for the correction @TheRolyPoly
  5. Another senior local news anchor is signing off at CTV. Ken Shaw, the long time anchor of CFTO/CTV Toronto's noon ant 6 PM newscasts, is leaving his post on the anchor desk in January 2020. He will still be part of the CTV News team doing special projects for at least the next year. A Frank magazine article in November had suggested that CTV may have pushed Shaw out as part of a round of layoffs in October. https://toronto.ctvnews.ca/ctv-news-toronto-s-veteran-anchor-ken-shaw-announces-retirement-1.4719052 Shaw is the latest long-serving local news anchors at the CTV network to leave. On November 14, Gord Leclerc, one of CKY/CTV Winnipeg's main anchors for 24 years, was unceremoniously let go after presenting the station's noon newscast. https://www.winnipegfreepress.com/special/instagram/anchor-leclerc-laid-off-by-ctv-564943692.html In September, CFRN/CTV Edmonton's Daryl McIntyre ended his 33-year run as that station's top news presenter; he had stated publicly that he was forced to take a buyout. https://edmontonjournal.com/news/local-news/liane-faulder-its-a-wrap-as-daryl-mcintyre-leaves-the-nightly-news-desk-at-ctv In April 2018, CTV also let go Tamara Taggart and Mike Killeen, the two principal anchors at CIVT/CTV Vancouver. Tamara had been at CIVT since the launch of that station in 1999. https://vancouversun.com/news/local-news/ctv-vancouver-fires-news-anchors-tamara-taggart-mike-killeen Some of the legacy news anchors that remain across the CTV network are Steve Murphy and Bruce Frisko (ATV/CTV Atlantic), Mutsumi Takahashi (CFCF/CTV Montreal), Ian White (CFCN/CTV Calgary), and Jim Chricton (CHWI/CTV Windsor).

    I wonder if the new CBSEN is using a control room in Washington, DC, or if they are sending everything back to one of the control rooms in New York.
  7. So did Televisa just give everything they had left from CW6 to KFMB? Odd that KFMB would have that banner.
  8. For the Federal Elections, Global used the old Bloor Street studios (non-virtual) in the last election, and the ET CANADA set before that. For local news, all the local sets except Montreal feature real interview sets. The news desk is usually in the other half of the studio that is virtual. CKWS and CHEX’s sets are completely real for now. The virtual sets that we see today were rolled out back in 2008 in the smaller markets, and 2010 at BC/Calgary/Edmonton/Toronto. For Global National, I think they stopped using real sets in 2008 when the network moved the studio to Ottawa for a couple of years.
  9. CTV used the CFTO Toronto studio again for this election. That desk is massive. I thought CBC and Global had more interesting presentation this year. Also, interesting that every single CBC/CTV/Global station carried regional tickers showing local/regional results, rather than scrolling through all 322 ridings (Global promoted this but CTV/CBC didn't).
  10. One of the final WGN station IDs you'll see during a Cubs broadcast Seen at the end of the retrospective during the "10th Inning" broadcast after the game on WGN. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cge3A5nsYN8
  11. I think CTV Toronto should simulcast CP24 at 5 AM right before Your Morning. They're already doing that at 5 PM. Why waste that time on paid programming or last night’s news
  12. CTV’s Your Morning is now airing on CTV stations in Western Canada on weekdays. The show now broadcasts live at 3 AM PT/5 AM CT, right before the local CTV Morning Live broadcasts. This means, for example: Viewers watching CTV Winnipeg will see only the first hour of Your Morning at 5 AM CT, followed by CTVML Winnipeg from 6-9 AM CT Viewers watching CTV Edmonton will see the first 1.5 hours of Your Morning at 4 AM MT, followed by CTVML Edmonton from 5:30-9 AM MT. Viewers watching CTV Vancouver will see a majority of Your Morning (2.5 hours) starting at 3 AM PT, with the last half hour being pre-empted for CTVML Vancouver at 5:30 AM PT. The eastern CTV stations (Toronto, Kitchener, Ottawa, Montreal, Atlantic) continues to air Your Morning in its entirety from 6-9 AM ET/7-10 AM AT, with local cut-ins at :25 and :55.
  13. A shooting has happened at a mall near Calgary, Alberta. This is how local TV in Calgary covered the incident on their late night newscasts.
  14. He didn't retire. He was forced to take a buyout. He mentioned on air that he wasn't retiring, but that he was leaving CFRN/CTV Edmonton. This Edmonton Journal article also mentions it. I am getting the sense from his interviews that he really didn't want to leave yet. It really sucks he didn't leave on his own terms, but he had a lovely send off on air. Cool to see clips from the Eyewitness News era. I am also wondering if CTV will also target other long-serving anchors like Ken Shaw (CFTO Toronto), Mutsumi Takahashi (CFCF Montreal), Steve Murphy (ATV Maritimes), or Gord Leclerc (CKY Winnipeg) in order to cut their budgets. BTW, over at Global Edmonton, Gord Steinke has been anchoring the evening news for about 27 years. He's the last of the old-school news anchors still left in Edmonton.
