  1. Interestingly, looks like Tegna has wiped clear their job postings. Only 2 are listed when there are usually dozens. Wonder if it's due to COVID-19 or the acquisition attempts? https://www.jobs.net/jobs/tegna/en-us/all-jobs/
  2. Here is an example and explanation of KGW's "social distancing" at the start of their 5pm show Monday. They have also ditched their usual 7pm entertainment show for a half hour of responding to viewer questions. They have this new thing as well where people can text in questions to their newsroom phone number.
  3. So why is Tegna so sought after? Why isn't Tegna doing the acquiring?
  4. That might be the "safe" thing to do, but I don't think they were going for safe. I think they wanted to be bold and take a risk. There are still plenty of "traditional" newscasts at 4pm, 5pm, 6:30pm, and 11pm on KGW....
  5. Well, here is the first episode. Not sure what to think but I think it's slightly better than I thought it would be. I'll wait to see more episodes to see if they are able to keep up the same type of stories and quality. I looked over social media for comments and I'd roughly guess maybe 80% liked it.
  6. KOIN has announced that they are expanding their morning news program and will now add 7am-9am on their sister station acquired from Tribune, Portland's CW (KRCW). It's called AM Extra (KGW has an online morning show called "Sunrise Extra"), and will have slightly different hosts and apparently it will be a more lifestyle based show.
  7. Are these actual Tegna templates or in-house knock-offs? I haven't seen these exact looks before.
  8. TEGNA lied and I'm not surprised. Where did this idea come from the Tegna was "giving up" on this stuff? The departure of Joel Cheatwood? Even if that's a logical conclusion to make, developing a new show from conception to debut can take 6-12 months. So this new KGW show was probably in the works long before he left, if he was even involved at all.
  9. Looks like the show debuts next Monday 1/27 according to TV listings. They posted a few more tweets today as well. Here is one of them.
  10. (he was only joking) ^^^^Enlarged for clarity KGW hasn't had a newscast at 7pm since at least the mid 2000s, if not much earlier. It's been a local, live entertainment show, that yes, did change hosts and names a couple years ago. But the show is definitely not portrayed as news. (It's obviously not news if you've actually seen it.)
  11. I just saw some tweets this evening about what looks like a new show coming to KGW to replace their 6pm news. It's called "The Story with Dan Haggerty". He is one of their current evening anchors. Not much to go off of but here is what the Twitter bio says: Telling stories in an authentic, engaging and different way. Join us weekdays at 6 p.m. on @kgwnews. Coming soon!
  12. It takes a lot of time, effort, planning and production to do a series that is high quality. Are there any current/recent podcasts from TV stations that you like?
  13. Interesting implementation. Music fit relatively well. I would've not had that 2nd scene in the open to make it flow better and I'd slightly slow down the FOX "O" animation at the end. Looks like they basically run the open twice too...before and after the tease. I know it's not exactly the same, but pretty close.
