Station Group CEO

Station Group CEO (8/8)



  1. Some other clips from this week. amd a clip from the FBI Academy! Oh here’s a true Baltimore thing. The city puts salt boxes out for people to get salt for the winter. This winter they allowed people to paint them. So someone drew Stan on it. The story from WBAL with additional photos and videos..
  2. To be fair. NBC News posted an article well before you posted this. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.today.com/today/amp/tdna226149
  3. NewscastStudio tweeted out that it was known as Look S about two hours before it’s name was known in this thread. So this time they didn’t steal from us.
  4. Couldn’t find anything. So they’re not doing anything structural to the building. But from what I’ve heard about NBC during Comcast and even during the GE years that there was always construction going on in some part of their condominium unit.
  5. Time for me to go check the permit office in NYC… let me see what I can find.
  6. Here’s a sneak peak of WTTG’s new set when they move from Washington DC to suburban Maryland. Right now the launch date is supposedly mid to late July.
  7. Generally takes a few months or even a year for the graphics to reach the RSNs.
  8. One is Technicolor, they take DirecTV feeds and they can be rearranged any which way. Some TVs such as ones on newsroom ceilings maybe controlled by a controller such as a sports bar while others maybe using commercial televisions that are used to decrypt the feeds. They have ATSC decoders so when your station gets pulled from DirecTV you can still monitor it. Comcast had lineups for organization like college campuses where you don’t need a box for every TV and can login like you do at home for their TVEverywhere lineup. It wouldn’t surprise me if stations went this route. I’m not sure what the type of setup would be needed at the station level though. If everything is in the free and clear that would allow stations to stream and develop an IP option.
  9. I shudder to think of the picture quality on that channel.
  10. Glad I can continue watching WBAL when on vacation in Rehoboth or Ocean City.
  11. WJZ is using double 16:9 boxes now. Same background. Not full height.
  12. There could be a variety of reasons such as no space left on the signal.
  13. Very nice. Like how it essentially replaces the bottom line.
