    Retransmission Consent squabbles

    I won, because I bet a co-worker the blackout would end before the government shutdown would end.

    Retransmission Consent squabbles

    The Tribune-Spectrum blackout has ended.

    This is something. It's in the Seattle Times (paywall), but KCPQ fired an editor for using doctored video of President Trump.

    WDAF-TV renovations/set

    The weather office remains in a separate room. All new sets have malfunctions and ghosts in the machine. When we launch it, we'll keep newscasts basic for a while. You'll probably see more of it in the morning news because half of the studio is the news set, and the other half is three separate interview sets. In fact, I think the 9:00 a.m. show will be staged entirely at one of those interview sets.

    I think we're ready to go later this week unless any new technical issues appear.

    In a temporary schedule switch, KCTV has moved Inside Edition to 4:30 p.m., so they can air Chiefs specials at 6:30. Presumably this will last until the Chiefs lose.

    Scripps - General Discussion

    Interesting that in this era of adding newscasts everywhere, KMTV is cutting news. They're dropping midday and 4 (or does that become "The Now" in the future?), as well as early evening weekend shows, but they're tacking on one of those half-hours to the 6:00 p.m..

    She certainly did. She doesn't post much to social media anymore. I'm guessing she has a new job outside of TV, or she's following the new fiance somewhere.

    KTVA newsroom sustains major earthquake damage

    KTVA is still streaming over Facebook, just walking around the building for the most part.
