  1. The payroll issues have been all too real for some people. In December, when we switched to Nexstar's version of Workday, the company thought I lived in California and worked in Colorado. Workday insisted Missouri did not exist when I tried to change it myself. Others were put in Illinois, Minnesota, Pennsylvania... just a mess. Some hourly employees didn't get holiday pay. The company corrected my withholdings in time. Then they forgot to deduct 401(K). Today I think it's finally right. We've been handling it all internally, ticket after ticket, but then I read FTVLive this morning and damn, dude...
  2. We have all-staff meetings twice a year. It's no big deal. But in this case, KTLA might be naming its new general manager.

    Here's our answer on the CBS O&O MMJ hiring spree: KTVT in nDallas is going to produce newscasts for Detroit, Atlanta and Tampa (presumably to sell political ads, not for outstanding content). https://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/three-cbs-owned-cw-stations-add-nightly-news
  5. I don't know if the news release is online yet, but Nexstar is launching a nightly newscast on WGN America called News Nation. It will air 7-10 p.m. central time.
  6. I'm surprised iHeart had that many people left to cut.

    Our anchor Dhomonique Ricks is leaving for Washington, D.C. where her husband works. https://www.facebook.com/DRicksTV/photos/a.1500542763536656/2594582514132670/?type=3&theater
  8. Nexstar officially opened its Jefferson City bureau today. Jeff Bernthal from KTVI is staffing it for this legislative session, but they still plan to hire a permanent MMJ.

    KCTV new set

    When we watched at noon Tuesday, KCTV used just two standing shots, plus weather. They didn't do a good job showing it off.
  15. I heard Nexstar is shutting down CLTV in Chicago. Hopefully some of those folks will be able to transfer seamlessly into WGN.
