  1. Along with their new logo, they're using the blue-and-white version of WTVY's graphics just like WHSV.

  3. RadioInsight added an update to the June 3rd article on Lotus' purchase of KOMO-AM-FM, KVI and KPLZ. The FCC filing revealed a number of "unique quirks" to the deal...
  4. Don't know when this happened, but WHSV is now using the blue version of WTVY's current graphics. Still using Stephen Arnold's "This Is The Place" music package. From VUit: https://www.vuit.com/live/12766/whsv news#

  7. WTVR in Richmond will be adding ION on 6.5 soon according to RabbitEars. Currently it's on WRIC 8.2. WRIC has been carrying ION since November 2015.
  8. Surprised no one here mentioned this, but hey, I'll do it. Bye-bye Entercom (and Radio.com). Hello, Audacy! Yesterday (March 30th), Entercom and Radio.com were rebranded as Audacy (pronounced "odyssey"). The company will be known as Audacy, Inc., while the radio stations, podcasts and the former Radio.com and its app will be just Audacy. The Entercom name has dated back to the founding of the company in 1968 as Entertainment Communications. Audacy will retain Cadence 13, BetQL, Pineapple Street Studios and recently-acquired Podcorn.

    In Memoriam

    Sad news here in Richmond. Longtime WWBT anchor Andrea McDaniel passed away after a battle with pancreatic cancer last week. She anchored NBC12 News Today and NBC12 News at Noon from 1985 to 2006. After that, she continued to appear on-air and represent the station on several community projects and then later hosted the station's RVA Today segments (RVA is Richmond's nickname) until last year. ‘So much heart’: Long-time NBC12 anchor Andrea McDaniel dies
  11. We missed this one: Two weeks ago, Sinclair laid off KPLZ-FM's morning show hosts and its music director. KPLZ-FM (aka "Star 101.5") is a hot adult contemporary station in Seattle and is one of four radio stations that Sinclair owns (KOMO-AM-FM and KVI).

  13. I didn't know this until now, but WUSA9 weekend morning anchor Mikea Turner joined WWBT NBC12 here in Richmond. No wonder I haven't seen her on WUSA9's Wake Up Washington in awhile! She joined the station two weeks ago and she's the new weeknight co-anchor (Karla Redditte left WWBT for Spectrum News in Charlotte last month). Tweet from Jan. 15th... Mikea Turner on Twitter: "ICYMI: My first week at @NBC12 flew by fast. Here’s a peek at my intro to viewers this week. Thanks for the warm welcome. You can catch me on the 5,6,7(CW),10(FOX through next week) and 11p.m. on NBC
  14. Don’t forget WVIR in Charlottesville. The station still have the old Waterman look after Gray added it to their portfolio last year.
  15. WWBT anchor/reporter Karla Redditte is leaving the station - after eight years - on the 18th. She's going to Spectrum News Charlotte in January. https://www.nbc12.com/2020/12/02/karla-redditte-leaves-nbc-after-years/
