  1. Seems odd that they would create a new logo with the 20th Century spotlights, when Fox no longer owns it.
  2. I believe the response says that Gray moved CBS to the LD after meeting with FCC staff. It’s close to guaranteed that Gray won’t pay the $500K fine. This will eventually end up in a federal courtroom, where the FCC has a terrible track record. Gray will end up paying nothing or a tiny fraction of the original fined amount.
  3. Seems like they forgot to install some lights between the main desk and the weather center.
  4. KXLJ-TV, now KTVH in Helena, MT, operated for nearly 50 years out of a Quonset hut.
  5. Yes, but not far (about a mile and a half). They are going on a tower, off of River Rd, that is shared with a couple FM stations.
  6. They announced they were moving back in 2017. They are moving into a brand new office tower at 7272 Wisconsin in downtown Bethesda. They are taking up 3 floors in the building. Their current building will be torn down and a new apartment complex will be built on the site. Here’s a link to the building they are moving to: https://www.workthewilson.com
  7. Cable in Flint carries WXYZ. Keeping WNEM means they don't have to compete with Detroit.
  8. Seems to me that Weigel would gladly give up WBND, and the hassle of dealing with ABC, to get a full power stick and one of their own networks. In a hypothetical trade, Gray gets WBND and the ABC affiliation and Weigel gets WSJV and H&I. The WCWW call sign and CW move from 25.1 to 28.1, while the WSJV call sign and H&I move from 28.1 to 25.1. The diginets on 28 move to 57 and the diginets on 57 move to 28. Everyone gets what they want.
  9. I say they will try to make it 2 years. There’s a senate race in NC in 2022 that will attract millions in political advertising. Grab the cash, then shut it down.
  10. Given that we're talking about a family-owned station in a sub 200 market, with no other television assets, they probably can't make enough revenue to pay for the rights to broadcast more than one network. If they want to keep a media voice in Zanesville, their best bet is to sell the station to Gray and have them run it as a semi-satellite of WTAP.
  11. Seems strange that the bug with the K2 logo switched halfway through the newscast to the more generic ABC Wyoming bug, identical to the one used in Alaska. Note to the reporter on the street at the Trump rally: if you are going to interview people, make sure to keep the flags that say "bullshit" out of the shot. Also noticed on the morning program that they use the weather team in Alaska and not the NewsNet team.
  12. The KTWO website is offline after weeks without any updates. Coastal did register yourwyominglink.com back in July. I'm assuming they will use the new address, and include CBS and FOX.
  13. I'm sure Cowles would find it much easier to have ABC/FOX throughout the entire state, but they're not touching KSVI/KHMT. Billings sits at the base of the Rimrocks, which run along the city's eastern border. Both KULR and KTVQ have their towers on top of the Rimrocks, as close to the edge as possible. It's the only way you can actually see the entire city. KSVI and KHMT share a tower, which would be okay except that KHMT is licensed to Hardin, MT, 45 miles east of Billings. The only way you can run both stations on the same stick, while legally covering both Billings and Hardin is to be
  14. Nexstar isn't touching those stations with a hundred foot pole. They will never have a chance against KTUU/KYES because the few people who advertise up there aren't going to put their ads on a duopoly that gets virtually no viewership. You know why Nexstar has KSVI/KHMT? They never really wanted it, but it was part of the Quorum package, so they had to take it. They have tried to sell those stations, but no one wants to buy the third and fourth stations in a two station market. It's the same fact in Anchorage. If GCI's cable leverage and multi million dollar investment couldn't dent Gray a

    This. Nexstar spent millions to update WATN/WLMT and got virtually nothing out of it in return (other than selling it to Tegna). In terms of TV markets, New Orleans and Memphis are the same size. The sad fact is that markets like these don't have the revenue to support 4 distinct news departments.
