  1. Uh, it's the same logo design as KWQC's. You don't see them calling themselves "KWQC HD News 6"!

  3. Starting Monday, October 3rd, WWBT's NBC12 News Today will expand to 4:30am. WWBT is the third station in Richmond to join the 4:30am bandwagon. Here's a link to a funny video promoting the launch featuring the station's weekday morning meteorologist Andrew Freiden. http://youtu.be/t-ETGtIb8No Let's go to another Channel 12, WSFA in Montgomery where meteorologist Dan Atkinson is retiring after 40 years. He first worked at the station from 1974-1982 and then moved to Atlanta (WSB and The Weather Channel). He returned to WSFA in 2006. His last day will be this Sunday, October 2nd. I remember watching him on TWC years ago. We at TVNT wish Dan a happy retirement. http://www.wsfa.com/...in-broadcasting
