    Cox sells majority TV interest to Apollo

    One can only hope. The new company will be private, though, unlike Hearst-Argyle.

    Cox sells majority TV interest to Apollo

    It’s official. Cox will maintain a minority stake; but if they have no say in the operations (as would be expected with a minority stake) this could be bad. It does lessen the chance of a sale later, though. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/2/15/breaking-the-cox-internal-memo

    Cox sells majority TV interest to Apollo

    If past is prologue, Apollo will do what Providence (Newport) and Oak Hill (Local TV) did; and that’s hold onto the stations until the perfect deal shows up. I doubt they’re looking at this as a long term investment. Also keep in mind that Tribune rejected their overtures earlier, and they were even more eager to sell than Cox is. I’d put this in the rumor column.

    WISC (finally) getting a new set

    WXIA's logo is bad interpretation of "retro"; this is a bad interpretation of "modern".

    I'm pretty sure Jeffrey Osborne also did the "Show Me 5" promo song for KSDK in the mid-80s.
  6. So you're the one that bought the WXFL SoTB Plate! I was going to buy it to put it on the front of my Orange Ford Escape with a Bucco Bruce era Tampa Bay Bucs license plate frame! Haha! Good find! Lucky you!

      Yeah. I couldn't pass it up, especially considering the sunset 10 jacket was too small for me. I probably won't be putting it on my car, though; that's the kind of thing I'd like to keep away from the elements.

    New WDIO Set & Logo

    Bad slogan is bad.

    Classic Video Thread (pre-2008)

    KDFW, too. The news theme and promo song were also heard in San Francisco, but on different stations. KTVU used the news theme for their weekend 6:00; and KOFY had the promo.

    2018 NFL Season

    The New World at 20 series would be a great complement to that article.

    Disney Execs reported to be visiting Cox stations

    I think the most likely scenario here is...someone is pulling Scott’s leg.

    Sinclair Broadcast Group - General Discussion

    I used to think that Sinclair represented everything wrong with broadcasting. Now, I see that Sinclair represents everything wrong with everything. At long last, Mr. Smith, have you left no sense of decency?

    It’s the sale we all feared. No, not Cox; Television City. The current productions will remain for at least five years, after that: who knows. https://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/cbs-selling-television-city-studio-complex-for-750m

    There's also this, which looks even worse. But it's also a microscopic market compared to DFW.

    WFLD/KTNV theme - Chris Crane?

    It’s definitely Crane.
