  1. Any possibility of ABC 7 having their 7 PM news moved to 9 PM on WCIU? Or is the competition between WGN and FOX that strong?
  2. There's an election happening in the province of Alberta in Canada. Global, CTV, and CBC are presenting rolling coverage, while Citytv will be presenting special coverage at 8 PM and 11 PM. Global is out of the gates early at 7 PM MT (1 hour before polls close). Their coverage is being broadcast out of Global Edmonton's studios, and is simulcast on Global Edmonton, Global Calgary, Global Lethbridge, Global News Radio, and online. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jvk8hgjv7Fg CBC begins their coverage at 7:30 PM MT from CBC Edmonton's studios, and is being broadcast on CBC Edmonton, CBC Calgary, and CBC News Network. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gHPv5T0pvN8 CTV will start their coverage at 8 PM MT, not sure if CTV Calgary and CTV Edmonton will have separate coverage. CTV Edmonton: https://edmonton.ctvnews.ca/video?playlistId=1.4381873 Citytv will have province wide coverage out of their Citytv Calgary studios. They won't have rolling coverage, according to the TV listings. The news specials will air from 8-9 PM, and 11 PM onwards. https://edmonton.citynews.ca/2019/04/16/abvotes2019-alberta-election-live-streams/
  3. No, the current graphics package remains. Only the news logos were updated/replaced with the one above.
  4. It appears Canadian Traffic Network's TV helicopter services are no longer exclusive to Global, at least in Toronto anyway. Explains why CityNews Toronto got Global Toronto's old helicopter. https://trafficnet.ca/en/markets-stations-tv/
  5. What a blow to WGN. I wonder how much revenue was from their sports broadcasts, and if the loss of that will affect the rest of the station overall (ie. layoffs in news and other departments).
  6. Chris Schauble is anchoring with Liberte in studio, while Lynette and Dayna are in Pasadena to tee up the Tournament or Roses Parade. I know this is highly unlikely, but Schauble would have made a great replacement for Burrous. He has the energy and humour to push the show through like Burrous. Maybe he could fill in for a while until the station finds a suitable replacement.
  7. Tonight will make a good demo tape for her CBS Evening News audition
  8. Been watching a bit of CBS’s coverage, and it’s interesting that Nora O’Donnell is the one leading the show - not Jeff Glor.
  9. WMBB is now simulcasting WFLA, which was briefly showing WKRG.
  10. Both CP24 reporters on CFTO's 11:30 news used CP24 mic flags, they were even identified as CP24 reporters. I wouldn't rule out CFTO and CP24 newsrooms merging, but it probably won't come very soon. If they did merge, I would imagine CFTO News moving in with CP24 than vice versa. And yeah, I've seen how omnipresent CP24 is in Toronto. It's in every waiting room, coffee bar, restaurant, strip club, etc in the GTA.
  11. On CTV Toronto's 11:30 PM news, they had 2 live reports from CP24 reporters in addition to their 1 live report from one of their own reporters. I am wondering if this is a sign that Bell is ready to fully integrate CP24 into CTV Toronto, or vice versa...
  12. I don’t mind this.... maybe change the > back to red lol Corus Entertainment (owners of a Global and several popular cable channels) have had their stock prices tank to new lows recently. I wonder if CBS has come by and kicked their tires...
  13. The graphics look like something that the Tribune graphics team started for WBFF before the merger deal went sour...
  14. They can't even get the name of their show right. Is it the ABC 7 Morning Show, or Eyewitness News?
  15. First minute is the same KCBS promo as above. The second minute is the country version of "The Address is CBS" for KHOU.
