  1. Did Shepard Smith did some shit we don't know about? Like sexually harassing and abusing women, like Roger Ailes and Bill O'Reilly did? That could explain why Smith was escorted out of the building after he ended his show. He left FOX News pretty abruptly.
  2. Looks like Colorado is officially NEXSTAR TERRITORY! We've got the duopoly of FOX21 KXRM and CW57 KXTU in Colorado Springs/Pueblo. Plus, we've got CBS5 KREX in Grand Junction. Now, for the Denver duopoly of CW2 KWGN and FOX31 KDVR, that duopoly was the last piece of the puzzle. That approval from the FCC and the Justice department had fit it together
  3. Since we're talking about renditions of our national anthem, I thought I'd throw in one rendition for good measure. PBS member station KCET in Los Angeles signing off with the University of Southern California marching band performing our national anthem at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum (home of Rams, Raiders and the 1984 Summer Olympics) VERY RARE indeed, seeing that very FEW PBS member stations ever played the Star Spangled Banner at the end, and then beginning, of their broadcast day. Very few PBS member stations playing our salute to America back in the day, can you believe it? After the sign off, those stations went straight to the test-pattern, and then, cut off the juice until it was time to go back on the air.
  4. I concur with Dirty Harry. I watched those Nexstar videos with Nashville acts, and I've got to say, it doesn't have as much strength and gravitas as other renditions in the past I remember THIS rendition from Sandi Patty, and this was used when KRDO ABC13 in Colorado Springs/Pueblo ended and began their broadcast day with this rendition. It showed beauty shots of Colorado Springs and our military, while this song played in the background
  5. After one late night/early morning program ends, and before the early morning news begins, I'm guessing THAT SLOT is where stations are putting the NEW Star Spangled Banner. In a world where stations are NOW staying on the air 24/7, it's good to see a long lost tradition make a comeback to the airwaves. I see that the CBS O&O stations are taking that SSB video from the Gray-owned stations, and putting their own twist to the SSB, mainly at the end of the salute to America.
  6. Here's ONE example of Drones in use at TV stations - FOX21 KXRM Colorado Springs/Pueblo https://www.fox21news.com/news/introducing-skyfox21/ That drone is called SkyFOX21. That drone is used to cover breaking news and beauty shots of Southern Colorado There's even a twitter account, so you can see the drone in use (CLICK HERE)
  7. Two years after KCNC became a CBS O&O station - after NBC sold Channel 4 to CBS in 1995 - there was a localized version of the CBS 1997-98 promo. Cue the video to the 2:10 mark - The Address is NEWS4 (now CBS 4 News) Welcome Home to the Spirit of Colorado The promo geniuses at 1045 Lincoln Street have taken the CBS 1997 promo, and incorporated it into KCNC's locally-produced Spirit of Colorado promo, minus the gigantic Colorado flag (CLICK HERE). Even the rewrite of the lyrics to the CBS Campaign for KCNC is awesome, which describes the beauty of our state CBS original opening lyrics You've Been So Many Places It's Not Hard to Lose Your Way It Can Make You Long For Somewhere You Can Call Your Own KCNC rewrite describing Colorado You've Been So Many Places Far Across the Great Divide The Spirit of Colorado Where the Mountains Reach the Sky
  8. For this discussion, all I can think of is CW (former UPN and WB) and FOX affiliates that used Network Number Eyewitness News or Action News. For the Eyewitness News format in Memphis: WHBQ called themselves FOX13 Eyewitness News; WPTY was ABC 24 Eyewitness News, and WLMT was CW 30 Eyewitness News (before that, it was UPN 30 Eyewitness News). Another FOX affiliate was WAGA Atlanta calling themselves FOX 5 Eyewitness News. Another CW affiliate is WTVW Evansville, IN calling themselves CW 7 Eyewitness News. And now for the Action News format. KMAX in Sacramento called themselves UPN 31 Action News. WALA in Mobile/Pensacola called themselves FOX 10 Action News.
  9. Here's another video taken from KRDO ABC13 in 1987. It's a commercial for Blick's Sporting Goods in Colorado Springs, and the music sounds awfully familiar Cue the video below to the 2:16 mark. You'll hear the news theme that was used on these two stations WNAC Newsroom 7 Boston (now WHDH) for their Election 1980 coverage WJET ABC24 in 1986 for their Action News
  10. THAT is the FOX21 KXRM news set. Only with the FOX31 KDVR logo on it. If the Nexstar purchase of Tribune stations DO go through, it looks like FOX31 Denver could have the similar set design as possible sister station FOX21 in Colorado Springs/Pueblo. QUITE THE POSSIBILITY
  11. When did your station stop signing off for the night and started going 24/7? I know in my hometown of Colorado Springs, Colorado - KRDO and KKTV began going 24 hours a day in 2003. They stopped signing off for the night. That was when KKTV finally started airing CBS News Up to the Minute (now CBS Overnight News), and KRDO finally decided to air ABC's World News Now. KOAA has always been 24 hours since the 1980s...with NBC News Nightside and Hit Video USA.
  12. On an actual ABC station in 1991 - rival WSB Channel 2 Action News - Now THAT was more like it.
  13. SHOOT! Your'e Right! That makes KMGH ABC7 the THIRD Denver client of TVbD KWGN was Denver client #1 in the 80s until about 1993 KUSA was the Denver client #2 from 1992 about mid-2000s KMGH was Denver client #3 from 1998 until unknown
  14. Doubtful it's TVbD because I saw the KCNC news open (1995-97), and it doesn't look like TVbD to me. This was when after NBC sold KCNC to CBS. The only clients in Denver I know were KWGN and KUSA. KWGN was TVbD's first client in Denver, which began in the 1980s when Channel 2 was an independent station before the WB in 1995 (now as CW affiliate). Then, KUSA became TVbD's second Denver client. This was after 9NEWS moved to its new (and current) building in 1992, and before/after it switched from ABC to NBC in 1995.
  15. The Nexstar Family of Colorado Duopolies In the Colorado Springs/Pueblo market, it's FOX21 KXRM and CW57 KXTU (also known as SoCo CW). In the Grand Junction market, it's CBS5 KREX and FOX4 KFQX. If the FCC approves Nexstar's purchase of Tribune stations, including FOX31 KDVR and CW2 KWGN, that Denver duopoly would be the final piece of the puzzle. The circle will be complete. Colorado will officially be Nexstar Country!
