    ABC going after NFL Sunday package?

    Dancing with the Stars' spring season got canceled for the first time ever, and there's apparently a decent chance that it won't come back in the fall.

    The Definitive ABC 7 Thread

    New reporter at ABC 7. Meghan Kluth joins as a sports and news reporter...and fill-in anchor? After the last few months with Stadium in Chicago, she spent 3 years before that at WGNO in New Orleans. https://www.linkedin.com/in/meghan-kluth-60776444/

    2018 NFL Season

    A couple of notes from ESPN/ABC's Wild Card coverage today. Booger McFarland is off his on-field perch, and in the booth with Tessitore and Whitten, likely a test for next season. ABC will both simulcast the Pro Bowl with ESPN, and will also have their NFL Draft coverage, in addition to the cable programming. Not sure about the Pro Bowl, but that draft night arrangement is brand new. I've watched enough Monday Night Football this year to say that I'm pretty sure this minimalist scoreboard is new for today's game.

  10. NBC Sports Chicago will become the exclusive home of Blackhawks, Bulls, and White Sox games, starting next fall. https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/sports/nbc-sports-chicago-announces-new-deal-with-white-sox-bulls-and-blackhawks-503802931.html
  11. The Cubs' decision to start their own network has set in motion a new deal that will make NBC Sports Chicago the exclusive home to ALL White Sox, Bulls, and Blackhawks games starting next fall. WGN Sports is all but dead. https://www.nbcchicago.com/news/sports/nbc-sports-chicago-announces-new-deal-with-white-sox-bulls-and-blackhawks-503802931.html

    WABC - 7 Eyewitness News

    Now that I think about it, I believe New Years Rockin' Eve does include a little graphic under the LIVE bug crediting WABC during the chopper shots.

    KTLA's Chris Burrous dead at 43

    http://www.foxla.com/news/local-news/ktla-news-anchor-found-dead-at-age-of-43 Something about showing the press conference live and all seems really shitty by Fox, but we shouldn't be surprised.
