  1. Not quite, Jerome is a native Alabaman, born in Mobile in 1950, moved to Denver in 1976.
  2. I got two small questions relating to this merger: What is the main impetus of this deal and will there be cross-promotions between the networks despite the majority of programming on all Discovery networks is more reality/scripted driven?
  3. I wonder who would contact the webmaster of NewsMusicNow about Austin ripping off cuts from the site?
  4. I highly agree, he may never work at another broadcast network or cable channel ever again.
  5. Same way here in Detroit, WXYZ (Scripps-owned ABC affiliate) has used the "First Alert" brand for its weather (and later) traffic segments since 2011. WWJ continues to use the "First Forecast" branding for its weather segments since 2008 when the station was branded as simply "WWJ-TV".
  6. Yes, and other cities that had that nickname as well, such as Buffalo, Bangor, Springfield, Manchester (New Hampshire) and others.
  7. Both packages are based on the same folk song "This is My City, Chicago's My Town" which gave rise to the 1975 theme by Dick Marx, and other news packages by different composers, especially Frank Gari and Stephen Arnold. "Enforcer" debuted in 1994 on WBBM-TV, "CBS Local" debuted in 2013 on Nexstar-owned CBS affiliate KGPE in Fresno.
  8. Or Jeffrey Toobin. I'm surprised he's still there after that horrible display of what he did.
  9. Is Red River Broadcasting the same company that formerly owned NBC affiliate KDLT in Sioux Falls (currently owned by Gray)?
  10. Is the Sinclair Ransomware attack also affecting the Bally Sports Regional Nets, including Bally Sports Detroit?
  11. Curious question, can the FCC actually force a television station (like WWOR) to air locally-produced programming that is detrimental to their community of license?
  12. When you have CBS claiming to be "America's Most Watched Network" for more than a decade (mostly due its primetime programs, live sports telecasts such as the NFL, NCAA and others, along with Sunday Morning and 60 Minutes, which still remains the highest rated shows on those time slots) its morning and evening newscasts has still not have dug out of its big "third place hole" despite plenty of changes over the years.
  13. Nah, the CBS Eyemark is here to stay, although they should've adjust the size of the logo slightly.
  14. Looks like Atlanta will soon have 2 flagship stations (WSB/Cox and WGCL/Gray). Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Standard General a hedge fund, too?
  15. So much for the "Facts, not Opinions" slogan we were once promised...
