  1. Nothing screams professionalism more than misspelling your Anchor’s name in a press release.
  2. They could have simulcast KTWO news on KGWC for years, but haven't done so. My guess is they didn't want to dilute their ratings by spreading it across 2 channels. I don't know what ratings are like since KCWY shut down their news department, but before then, KCWY was regularly cleaning KTWO's clock on both ratings and revenue. In Sioux Falls, Gray is fighting the 800 pound gorilla (KELO) so they had a good argument to combine KSFY and KDLT. In Wyoming, it's the opposite. Gray is the 800 pound gorilla, and Coastal is the one arguing to have combined operations. I'm not convinced Coastal will make the same investments as Gray has. If Gray plans to stay in Wyoming, I'm sure they will eventually make another run at getting CBS, and putting it on 13.2 in Casper.
  3. Boy, the folks at Justice sure knew best when they blocked Gray from buying KGWC. I'm sure in a matter of months there'll be only one station in the entire state doing anything resembling local news.
  4. That's not going to happen. Nexstar renewed their affiliation agreements with Fox in September. https://www.nexstar.tv/nexstar-media-group-and-fox-broadcasting-company-renew-affiliation-agreements/
  5. If it's not a card table and a shower curtain, it's an upgrade.
  6. That's just market share of viewers. The bigger factor was market share of revenue. KELO has consistently taken at least 2/3 of the revenue pie. Good luck trying to take on the 800 gorilla when you have to compete with everyone else for the last third. It's only a matter of time before the FOX affiliation ends up on a subchannel of either KSFY or KDLT.
  7. Companies sometimes hold off on signing things for various reasons. They could simply not want it on their balance sheet until a certain point, or they could be refinancing debt, and want to complete the debt restructuring before adding the asset.
  8. Adults 25-54 is the most important to the sales department, because it helps them with advertising rates. People in that age range have the most disposable income. Nevertheless, winning anything in the July book is about as meaningful as winning a preseason NFL game.
  9. Are they abandoning the green screen already?
  10. I'm not sure if it's true now, but WSBT was the market leader for years under Schurz's ownership.
  11. KCBD in Lubbock says hello.
  12. Eh. Not a fan. Too much beige for my taste.
  13. It doesn't cost much to operate and shovels in money by the truckload. They're not giving that up.
  14. KMTV has been lost for years. The problem is that WOWT and KETV are able to pad their Omaha market viewership, and ad revenue, with significant viewership in the Lincoln market (due to relatively weak affiliates), while KMTV gets major pushback from KOLN.
  15. It’s the only full power allocation for Riverton. The FCC won’t let them give it up unless someone else operates it. Legacy argued that no one would operate the station as a stand-alone because it’s not financially feasible. Thus the conundrum.
