  1. Expanding news in KC. WDAF is adding a half hour at 5 p.m. Saturdays because of no sports, and KSHB is adding a 3 p.m. newscast. They recently made their 10 p.m. an hour too.
  2. Hmmm...suddenly have a desk big enough to comfortably sit 4 people doesn't seem like a bad idea, does it? Looking at you, Nexstar...
  3. Those ghost images do so much for the look. KSHB debuted the weather gfx. After seeing them on a 55" TV, I don't understand why everyone hates them so much. They looked pretty nice actually. Of note, KSHB has ditched WSI and picked up Baron. They used chimes on the 7-Day. News will transition in a few weeks. A gripe I now have with the look are the banners and lower thirds being semi-transparent. Just make it opaque.
  4. There's only one on-air job listed now. The rest are technical positions. Given how Tegna has extended their WFH policy until April 10th and are heavily encouraging people to not come to work, it shouldn't be a surprise that job interviews are on hold.
  5. Journalists and other broadcast employees are considered first responders by the Department of Homeland Security in order to relay critical information to the public, so shelter-in-place rules will be less stringent for them/us.
  6. I'm told KSHB will debut weather and traffic starting Thursday. News will follow several weeks later.
  7. I'd be more curious about health insurance and whether or not they'd refuse to cover some things because it goes against their morals.
  8. "I noticed you changed the color from purple to blue, so I'm hoping it's going to stay blue for every newscast." Oh that poor man. I can only imagine his horror when he woke up in the morning and when he saw that TalkBack using blue, purple and orange. Joking aside, I wonder what kind of changes Tegna might have made if they had this type of feed back in 2017/18. It makes one think if this is WNEP's sly knock at Tegna.
  9. I'm curious if Scripps will even bother repairing it. Also, I would think most stations would keep their chopper at an airport. Most TV stations are not favorable locations for a helipad.
  10. I just wish KFOR would change those archaic weather graphics.
  11. Pretty sudden retirement and evidently with little warning. He had made a few controversial comments the last week or so. Can't help but think if he was feeling the pressure. If not that, then some have pointed out he seemingly hasn't been all there lately, especially when signing off.
  12. I did some asking...sounds like the contract is up in April and they're shedding it. It'll leave KMBC as the only station in the market with a chopper.
  13. KCTV must have ended their sharing agreement. The other side of that chopper will have KSHB's logo, and there's footage from their chopper from within the last week. What's most frustrating is how painfully SD the camera is.
  14. Your list mentions KCTV discontinued their chopper in January 2020. They shared it with KSHB (it's really their chopper). Did that agreement end?
