  1. SI, itself a dying presence, writes about the slow death of the local sports anchor. https://www.si.com/media/2023/03/21/death-of-the-local-sports-anchor-daily-cover
  2. I don't think the RSN situation has anything to do with the layoffs. These are weak stations in small markets with little potential revenue
  3. I wonder if the algorithm mixed up your interest in KMGH with Scripps Health, which just settled a massive data breach lawsuit.
  4. https://www.nexttv.com/news/directv-sues-nexstar-for-conspiring-with-mission-and-white-knight-to-raise-retrans-fees
  5. Annie Yu returned from her medical leave.
  6. Ms. Fox will anchor weekend nights on WTTG. She made her own hype video.
  7. New anchor for KMBC-TV in Kansas CIty: https://www.adweek.com/tvspy/brya-berry-to-join-kmbc-as-anchor-in-may/247173/
  8. Following up, Scripps confirmed the job cuts. https://www.wcpo.com/money/local-business-news/scripps-cutting-300-jobs-joining-list-of-companies-to-have-layoffs
  9. The winter storm has knocked KPTV and KPDX in Portland off the air.
  10. Changing the post to confirm Spectrum News 13 employee died in the shooting. https://www.mynews13.com/fl/orlando/news/2023/02/22/police--shots-fired-near-scene-of-pine-hills-murder-investigation
  11. Here's an update on Dominion vs FOX News.
  12. Maas civil trial begins. https://www.cbs8.com/article/news/local/former-tv-anchor-equal-pay-trial-against-kusi-tv-begins/509-b19f36b8-4d6f-41ce-9ae9-b72269c6a802
  13. Ratings are not as bad as people think. KCTV is competitive in the afternoon and evening. They are way behind in the morning.
  14. I noticed Gray is starting to hire for its "daily magazine show," which I presume will begin airing in September at the latest. They say it is not a newscast, but it sure looks like a newscast from the description.
  15. It certainly provided a lot of content for NewsNation tonight. Lambert was on Banfield's show after leaving jail. I know a couple of people who worked with him in other markets, and they say he's a good guy, and that he handled the situation about as well as to be expected.
  16. Iger just announced Disney will seek 7,000 job cuts, $5.5 billion in cost reduction overall.
  17. https://www.mediaite.com/tv/watch-don-lemon-calls-off-commercial-break-to-go-off-on-kaitlan-collins-interview/
  18. I sound like a broken record, but the KCTV news director is out after one year on the job.
  19. It looks like the ice has damaged KXAN's (and KLRU) tower. KXAN's OTA signal is off. Edit to add: KLRU's problems appear to have preceded the storm.
  20. https://deadline.com/2023/01/the-cw-owner-nexstar-media-updates-investors-acquisition-broadcast-network-1235245362/
  21. Will the NewsMax Congressional hearing be before, or after the M&M mascot hearing?
