  1. Aerial? AERIAL? How to make your station sound small market in one simple step. It's not even edited nicely.
  2. Graham's CEO seems to be a very knowledgeable and hands-on leader. May be why the group is so successful.
  3. Death, destruction, world-changing politics... all given to you with smiles and a funky beat. Next on HashtagHTownRush. (Whatever that means.) Less news. More Time.
  4. KMID ditched their building for KPEJ's. Would be interesting to know who owns KPEJ's building.
  5. Fun Fact: Hot Haus' Matt Quinn is based in Cleveland and has done a lot of work with both WOIO and WKYC. Quinn was behind OIO's famous graphical looks through most of the 2000's. Not a stretch to think they went local again with a familiar face. Much like the Nashville stations do with 615 (WCPM)
  6. https://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/the-building-which-houses-foxs-washington-bureau-had-an-electrical-fire-this-morning/391495 Per TV Newser, a fire on the 8th floor of 400 N. Capitol in Washington, the building that houses much of FOX News, NBC News Washington, and C-Span has forced the operations out of the building. The fire was extinguished quickly, but both operations have been moved. FOX News Sunday and MediaBuzz were moved to WTTG's studios 7 miles away. NBC News moved their operations to their other Washington, D.C. area bureau. WTTG's Story: http://www.fox5dc.com/news/local-news/dc-fire-forces-television-studios-to-evacuate
  7. Uhg. More early 2000's video game looking, unrealistic virtual sets.
  8. NewsNet also now has a wikipedia page about it with a lot of information. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/NewsNet
  9. NewsNet just picked up two major-market affiliates. One in Chicago, the other in San Francisco.
  10. <div class="scripps_iframe_embed" style="position:relative;"><div style="display:block;width:100%;height:auto;padding-bottom:56.25%;"></div><iframe style="position:absolute;top:0;left:0;width:100%; height:100%;" border="0" height="100%" frameborder="0" webkitallowfullscreen="" allowfullscreen="" mozallowfullscreen="" scrolling="no" scrolling="no" src="https://assets.scrippsdigital.com/cms/videoIframe.html?&host=www.kgun9.com&title=Embeded%20Video&m3u8=https://content.uplynk.com/a9c3a102543e430a8b662a20aacdc681.m3u8&purl=/weather&story=0&ex=1&s=kgun"></iframe></div> That may soon change. KGUN's weather has the Scripps package.
  11. An Update: NewsNet confirms new year launch date, announces first affiliates. http://yournewsnet.com/where-to-see-newsnet/
  12. Sorry for your loss. As someone who works in a newsroom and reports on the identities of those who died, determining the preferred gender identity of a decedent is not always that practical. We have what the police tell us at our disposal, yes, but we do not have that person's entire background. Some newsrooms will try to contact family and friends, maybe poke around on Facebook, but that seems wrong on many levels. The last thing any victim's family needs is nosy reporters asking about genders and or their histories in the immediate aftermath of the incident. Corrections can be made, but how do reporters know that the information is factual? (I.E. That the person contacting them actually knew the victim.) We're journalists that report on facts and the facts that we can readily receive are from officials that often (almost always) give the biological sex. This isn't a snap of the finger change and in the age of ever-smaller newsrooms, producers and reporters have less and less time to dig into these kinds of things for a 30 second reader or a quick minute live shot. Should it change? Yes. But with anything in this day and age, it's an uphill battle.
  13. I mean, their corporate partner to the north *is* KRQE. That logo fits.
  14. Word is that the crowdfunding angle was ditched and investors signed on, so that's how it is able to launch.
  15. Bit of an Update: The kickstarter didn't go as hoped, and the project was rebranded. http://yournewsnet.com/introducing-newsnet/ News Net is set to launch in January. One of the big items dropped: local/regional programming other than inserted ads at the station level.
