    Natalie Morales Fired from Access Hollywood

    Morales remains with NBC. She'll just have a new role... somewhere.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I recall Sinclair thought it could divest WPIX for $15 million. I wonder what the stipulations of the buyback option would be between Scripps and Nexstar. For a few of those smaller stations, Tegna will be an upgrade.

    KFMB Slow Death Thread

    At least Kimmel paid those bribes for admission to Southern Cal and Georgetown, unlike that one joker who needed to grease the wheels for his child's admission to USD.

    February 2019 Sweeps Roundup

    We won the key demo once again across pretty much every day part. KC stations showed growth almost everywhere, and I think the crummy winter had a lot to do with the eyeballs.

    Cheers to making it through another Mardi Gras live pic without any FCC violations, although I was nervous about the presence of the nipple glitter sign.

    Pro: you have a power source for the ultimate homeless van-life experience. Con: That mast doesn't lubricate itself.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    The Nexstar executives have been visiting the Tribune stations this month. You always know something important is happening when the station cleans the carpets.
  13. At one point wasn't WPLJ one of the biggest money-makers in radio? Goodness. I guess I'll dig up some old tapes of 'PLJ and WRQX and put them on Youtube.

    Cox sells majority TV interest to Apollo

    We saw our biggest cuts when private equity owned us. But Cox stations are pretty top-heavy, well, heavy in general, and that's going to change no matter who buys them.

    Ex-reporter Lisa Benson's discrimination lawsuit against KSHB went to the jury today. So far no verdict...

    He put his employer in a poor light and deserved to be fired. I've probably done worse things on the air, but all of it happened before Twitter existed.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Have you seen the weather forecast in Iowa this week? I'd move the market to another state too. In the email we received, it says Nexstar will divest WTKR/WGNT and WNEP, in addition to stations in the overlap markets, and perhaps more as we've speculated.

    WDAF-TV renovations/set

    Renovations inside our station have moved to the studio. Say hello to our tiny temporary newsroom set. We used a lot of blue paint. Gutting and rebuilding the studio is going to take a long time, but a new set with better lighting will come out of it. The renderings I've seen look nice.

    Retransmission Consent squabbles

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