  1. The fine will be in the millions of dollars. No one's losing any licenses.
  2. FCC calling: https://www.wsj.com/articles/fcc-investigates-whether-sinclair-showed-lack-of-candor-when-trying-to-buy-tribune-11561600586?mod=searchresults&page=1&pos=1 In a June 25 letter to Sinclair viewed by The Wall Street Journal, the FCC said it is investigating whether the nation’s biggest owner of local television stations “engaged in misrepresentation and/or lack of candor” with the agency when it was seeking approval for the $3.9 billion deal.

    Out & About

    KOTV's former news director Jeff Bardach (former co-worker of mine) has landed at KDKA in Pittsburgh as assistant news director. He was out of work for several months.
  5. By my rough count, we would have to reassign around three more people to achieve that digital-first mantra. We already have a lot of people who are titled "multi-platform" and report to the digital content manager. I could see it being difficult for those mid-market stations that produce a lot of news, but don't have the resources to devote to a lot of web content. Personally I would start at ten percent and maybe assign a different reporter each day to be the "digital reporter of the day."
  6. WTHR has been a longtime ratings leader in Indianapolis, but they've been cutting back in recent years too. Good news for the competition...

    The New York Post (I know, I know) reported today that Tongen thought he had Lewy body dementia. Only his doctor would know for sure.

    TV companies are gradually coming after the managers after years of cutting talent salaries. Make one general manager run two or three stations. Give the ND a new title and double the duties. Gray recently "promoted" a few news directors to be general managers, even though those people will continue to be their station's news directors. Meredith added "station manager" titles to a few sales directors and news directors recently.

  10. 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).
