    The sales staff visits the newsroom:
  2. I'm not a fan of the skyline shot being used in the early evening, which is when I see their news. Something's off about the color, in my opinion. Otherwise, it's a good upgrade, but more could have been done with the space (i.e. interview set).

    I remember a time when KCTV had no sports, or outsourced sports. Now they're throwing resources into a nightly sports show on KSMO.

    I'm not sure what's happening at KTVI, but KPLR hasn't had any 12:00 newscast rundowns in the system this week. The aircheck recordings are blank. I assume KTVI's 11:00 news is just straight-up re-run on KPLR right now (the two were mostly the same anyway). I don't see evidence of anything else airing in its place.

    I doubt Missouri has ever seriously entertained the idea of selling KOMU. That journalism program attracts students from all over the central U.S., students who are willing to pay out-of-state tuition to be a part of that professional network. Even KBIA expanded to a second radio station (bought from Stephens College). As hostile as Missouri's legislature is to education in general, I think they view the Mizzou journalism program with pride. --------------- At least they got some cake on the way out the door. "Good luck." (I have no idea why my two posts were merged)
  9. No, NPG is not in the radio business. Eagle Communications owns the St. Joseph radio market, essentially.
  10. NPG intends to buy KQTV... somehow. https://www.kq2.com/content/news/News-Press--Gazette-Company-to-acquire-KQTV-508114491.html

    KRCG in Jefferson City lost programming for about six hours Sunday afternoon, both over-the-air, and on cable/satellite. That outage included the NCAA Tournament games. https://sports.yahoo.com/mid-missouri-cbs-affiliates-tech-issue-prevents-elite-eight-games-from-being-aired-003055821.html
