  1. I'm not a fan of the overly synth update to the theme music, but I like the 4th video you posted (logo over clouds)
  2. Did Taft & Coleman switch stations around the same time? Coleman, I believe, would have been doing weather (from Chicago) for Good Morning America at this point.
  3. Disney didn't come to own ABC until 7 years after this promotional video was produced. Mickey was used solely because of the ownership by Roy Disney.
  4. The exodus from Houston's KRIV continues. First, it was reporter Ashley Johnson who jumped ship to WWOR's "Chasing New Jersey" broadcast. Then Assistant News Director Howard Dorsey and Managing Editor Geoff Roth were cut loose. Last week main anchor Don Teague was reportedly escorted from the building. FTVLIVE reports that's related to a sexual harassment complaint filed by a (now former) reporter (my inside sources say his departure and said reporter's *ahem* promotion to another station are related). Today, the Chronicle reported that morning Meteorologist Lindsay Day
  5. I wouldn't expect it to. From everything I've read about the guy over the last dozen years, on Newsblues, TV Spy, FTV, that seems to be the general consensus. This latest "hey lady reporters, go freeze your ears off" (because we all know a blackened and/of trimmed ear from frostbite is sooooooooo much more attractive than a hat) only reinforces that perception.
  6. No, he's their morning EP. Tom Doerr, my old news director at KRIV in Houston is the ND at Fox Chicago
  7. That would be the Executive Producer, former WOIO News Director, Dan Salamon, according to FTV and TVSpy.
  8. Fox 26 reporter Katie McCall is leaving tv following her upcoming nuptials. McCall joined KRIV in April 2014 after stints at KTRK, WBBM, & KIAH.
  9. The graphic, a yellow Star of David with the German word for "jew" was worn by victims of the Nazi atrocities in world war 2
  10. Ummmm.... Don't think that should have been approved... http://www.adweek.com/tvspy/wp-content/uploads/sites/4/2015/09/Screen-Shot-2015-09-23-at-10.48.27-AM-862x557.png
  11. Courtesy Mike Mcguff's blog, here's the late Ron Stone's final newscast at KPRC2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zOeAuW1LMaE
  12. Behold, the "tease every story multiple times" Era, may it rest in peace.
  13. They originating stations for the preseason games are bid separately from the main package. As stated, KTVT handles the Cowboys while KTRK has the Texans. If KTBC was concerned about airing (either) package they would have ponied up the money. That being said, I'm sure Fox kept KTBC precisely because of the revenue generated by the regular season network broadcasts. There are also, as mentioned, certain synergies by having a station in Austin versus always sending a crew out to central Texas.
  14. They aren't dropping MNTV completely, just moving out of prime time into late night. I guess it makes sense in that it allows them to air the 9-10:30 newscast and keep all the advertising revenue from the sitcom reruns in prime time.
  15. But the $800 million question is would Raycom want to be leveraged that extensively. They are, after all, controlled by the Alabama Teachers Retirement System.
