  1. This is probably a win/win for everyone: Tamron gets the strongest possible lead-in these stations can offer and Rachael will probably be an improvement on Millionaire and a better lead-out for Strahan and Sara.
  2. Another strong sweeps showing for market leaders WISN and WITI; WISN takes 5pm (which is also the top-rated newscast altogether in the market) and 6pm, while WITI is tops at 10pm. https://www.jsonline.com/story/entertainment/television-radio/2018/11/26/wisn-tv-has-milwaukees-2-top-rated-newscasts-during-november-sweeps-nielsen/2107750002/
  3. Kathy Mykelby is retiring from WISN at the end of November after a 38-year run at the station https://www.wisn.com/article/wisn-tvs-kathy-mykleby-to-retire-in-november/23602333
  4. I’m assuming it’ll contract to a trio when one’s away; there has been talk of both Norah and Gayle contributing to 60 Minutes this season, so I wonder if Bianna is there to be a permanent part of the show without being delegated to simply fill-in.
  5. WISN is debuting an 11am newscast on 9/10, tied to the launch of GMA Day http://www.wisn.com/article/wisn-12-news-at-11-am-premieres-sept-10/22686560
  6. Tribune has renewed the Fox affiliations of eight stations; interestingly, all were rumored or outright set to be divested to FTS. https://deadline.com/2018/08/tribune-fox-renew-affiliations-of-eight-local-tv-stations-1202440670/
  7. You could say they follow the same Scripps...*insert Roger Daltrey’s scream here*
  8. WISN wins at 5pm and 6pm; WITI takes morning and 10pm; WTMJ in last place overall and at 10pm after winning both fields last May. https://www.jsonline.com/story/entertainment/television-radio/2018/05/24/channel-12-comes-out-top-may-sweeps-channel-6-no-1-10-p-m-wisn-witi-wtmj-wdjt-milwaukee-tv/641145002/
  9. From the sounds of this, it seems like Fox wants to perhaps buy more stations/stronger stations than Sinclair is willing to sell
  10. The 7pm hour never did well for The WB to begin with; i'm curious if we'll see affiliates replicate their access hour programming on Sundays in order to maximize the new lineup.
  11. Wouldn't be surprised if this led to her heading to NBC Sports in the near future, with her being married to Craig Melvin and all.
  12. Dickerson is one of the better in-house choices, but I don't get why they don't just continue with King and O'Donnell as a duo.
  13. This makes it clear that with some exceptions, the legacy New World stations at Tribune will largely be back with FTS. Fingers crossed WITI is spared from Sinclair.
  14. In Milwaukee...WISN maintains lead at 5, 6 and 10pm; WITI tops in the AM https://www.jsonline.com/story/entertainment/television-radio/2017/11/27/wisn-tv-leads-among-weekday-evening-newscasts-november-sweeps/897633001/
  15. A part of me wonders if there was another name at CBSN (my guess is Norah O'Donnell) that they were planning to move into the spot but something changed and they went to Glor.
