  1. If it weren’t for the live shot, you’d think this newscast was from 1969, not 1979.
  2. I have no clue about the odds. [The company formerly known as Gannett] is too big for any of the other broadcasters to swallow whole, so it would have to be hedge fund or private equity or some other company with limited broadcasting interests. If Standard buys them, you're definitely going to see a "back-to-basics" approach system-wide, not unlike what we see at the former-MG and LIN stations. This will benefit the "how do you do, fellow kids" stations like WTSP and WKYC, which could use a quick culture change. For stations like KARE and WBIR, who haven't lost all of their former luster yet; it may prove to be a downgrade. More everyday stories about robberies and house fires, less of those "slice of life" features.
  3. Stations in Florida and other hurricane-prone markets have been doing this for decades.
  4. It’s a 615 track. WTVT used it as a traffic bed for a while in the early 2000s, without the signature at the end.
  5. All of the conditions that led ABC to switch to KSTP, WSB, WSOC, WTLV, WSAV, WBRZ, and KOMU were present in the Tampa Bay market. I wonder what made WFLA decide to stay with NBC; and WIS and WSFA for that matter.
  6. I'd be curious to see what kind of ratings NBC pulls in by being the exclusive home of Notre Dame football. They one of the biggest fan bases in the sport in spite of their competitive obsolescence. If they still get good numbers, it could be a bargain to keep it, especially considering their mediocrity on the field could drive down the price of a renewed deal. They could even combine the two deals, Notre Dame game in the daytime, the SEC in primetime; though that could complicate things for SNL. Imagine Alec Baldwin having to stay in his Trump makeup for an extra hour because Auburn and Georgia are in quadruple overtime.
  7. FTVLive reporting complete with internal e-mail. Austerity measures are abundant in #NexstarNation. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/12/16/breaking-nexstar-shutting-down-cltv-in-chicago
  8. What’s even more amazing, WDAZ went on the air in 1967; long after the K/W line was moved.
  9. I hope Robin Baumgarten gets invited to the grand opening.
  10. I heard it in a WBTV promo, too. It has an uncanny resemblance to NBC’s Go Where The News Is promo that premiered not long after Steve Sohmer left CBS for NBC.
  11. I’d like to note that Scripps owns a ton of ABC affiliates; while WPLG is Berkshire Hathaway’s only broadcast property, making it an “only child” much like KTVK was in the mid-90s. Just saying.
  12. Weird, considering KGBT was only a secondary NBC affiliate.
  13. It sounds like a Network Music track, to me.
