    KPRC Houston Life New Set

    I imagine it’s covered in logos because it was in a mall. Maybe just simple advertising.

    ABC going after NFL Sunday package?

    I don’t think that will happen. The NFL wants to make as much money as they can. If each network gets a shot at games then they have no reason to pay the current rate. They NFL wants a bidding war.

    Megyn Kelly Today Officially Cancelled

    Is there any word if Megyn Kelly is under a non compete or what? If I was the brass at NBC and Comcast and payed out the rest of her salary I’d want her off the air until her original contract was up.

    Previous Hearst Sets

    I’ll admit I contributed to this thread. But I predict it will turn into a list thread. So .

    CA Live

    I’m curious how the first week of CA Live went. The show airs in KNBC, KNSD and KNTV at 11:30. Since I’m not there I’m asking questions: What’s the format of the show? Is it pay to play (promotional consideration mentioned)? Are there local opts for the stations? Could you see this move to other non NBC O&O stations in CA either live or tape delayed? Could the content of the show be repackaged to another show, same hosts at a different station (think NY Live and WBTS’ The Hub)? How will they handle news if it breaks in LA or a car chase? (It uses one side of the KNBC studio and likely control room and KVEA’s newscasts start when CA Live ends).

    Megyn Kelly Today Officially Cancelled

    There was a report on FTVLive that his contract was up at the end of last year and there wasn’t talk of renewals. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2018/12/18/just-two-weeks-left

    Today Show

    I imagine they’ll stay on the weekend. NBC has been doing that with their First Look team the past year. They probably have the afternoons off and with no Sunday shows they probably can leave at 9AM. Willie Geist, Ayman Mohyeldin, Yasmin Vossoughian and Jose-Diaz Balart all do six day work weeks.

    ABC going after NFL Sunday package?

    True and same could go with The Bachelor/ette series, but they’ve been engrained into their head that they air on Monday’s.

    Megyn Kelly Today Officially Cancelled

    NBC reportedly is paying out the remaining of her contract per Today.
  11. Great pick up. I’m on the app, it shows Simi Valley but won’t show the location when I zoomed in. Maybe it’s the highest peak and they allowed them? One is still parked at that Tx/Rx site for KNTV.

    New WXIA Set

    Shiba Russell has posted a story on Instagram of a new set. Today they were rehearsing but not much was seen and yesterday (I didn’t get a capture) she showed some work going on from the desk.

    The Suicide of CNN...Good Bye Old Friend.

    All very good points @Eat News. My opinion of them being conservative is the fact they mentioned they were shared by Drudge, Newt Gingrich and a Former Speaker of the House. To me it would have helped their case if they mentioned other outlets that have shared their content. In addition to the comments/followers/favorites/likes their reporters and photojournalists have made on social media. Also, they made an appearance on The Ingraham Angle.

    The Suicide of CNN...Good Bye Old Friend.

    The only thing I can’t get past is CNN requesting a package from KUSI a station known with a conservative bent. When there’s breaking news in San Diego who do they most likely turn to? I’m betting KFMB or KGTV for immediate reports on the ground. Maybe KUSI for images. To be fair the CNN ditched the AP as a source years ago. Many large news organizations have developed their style guides such as the BBC. Reuter’s unsurprisingly has their own online. I’m sure many others have their own.

    Today Show

    Yeah NewscastStudio confirmed it was above homebase so the windowed portion. They briefly showed the exterior and the upstairs portion has white walls facing the windows.
