  1. I would use the old Tones on Tail song "Go!" at the start. When the newscast ends, play a song with "Stop!" in the title.
  2. I propose using a version played on the Theremin. That'll wake you up.

    Three Kansas City anchors are leaving at the same time. Richard Sharp is going from KSHB to Sacramento. Nicole DiAntonio is traveling from WDAF-TV to Washington, D.C.. Steve Albritton is leaving KMBC-TV for Cincinnati. In St. Louis, KTVI has two pregnant meteorologists simultaneously. https://fox2now.com/2019/09/06/angela-hutti-and-jaime-travers-are-expecting/

    I was watching KOSA during the shooting coverage today, and the anchors left the set twice because of armed officers running through the shopping mall where they have a studio. Now the anchors are in the parking lot, losing their mics periodically, with an empty set on screen.

    Sad news from WHNT: https://whnt.com/2019/08/09/remembering-whnt-news-19s-ivy-anderson/
  10. I've never bothered to watch the CBSN N.Y. or L.A. versions, but how much of it is truly live? Do they have a recorded newscast scheduled to air when live events aren't possible?
  11. Hello again from Dish: https://keepmystation.com/wdaf
  12. Some traffic reporters are part-time, paid by the traffic map/drive-time provider. Some are just on-air talent who turn a couple of stories after the morning show ends, do feature segments elsewhere in the morning show, and so on. My youngest brother, who barely watches news, uses Waze. I suspect most prefer that or a similar app.
  13. The latest FAQ email landed in my inbox this morning. Most of the answers are "That decision is up to Nexstar/Scripps/TEGNA." And as usual, open enrollment is in November.

    Anyone on this board could afford to buy a half-hour of time on a mid-market local TV station.
