  1. Update on the RSNs: https://nypost.com/2022/09/20/mlb-nba-and-nhl-may-buy-biggest-owner-of-regional-sports-tv-networks-sources/
  2. I wouldn't be surprised if he was fired. Criticizing the company publicly is unprofessional in any industry.
  3. Yeah, I think reporters knew she had died earlier in the day. They were prepared, but rather unfortunate they had to be on the air for so long before the official announcement.
  4. Streaming is awkward right now. Maybe a tech purchase is on the horizon? (edited to add tweet)
  5. Hours and hours of Nicholas Witchell...

    In Memoriam

    CNN's Bernard Shaw died at age 82. He retired back in 2001. https://www.cnn.com/2022/09/08/media/bernard-shaw-obituary/index.html?utm_term=link&utm_medium=social&utm_content=2022-09-08T13%3A21%3A04&utm_source=twCNN
  7. Put on all the news you want, but job candidates aren't magically appearing. Gray was trying to find people willing to work remotely to put news on at KVVU. I don't know if anyone took them up on their offer.

  9. Julie Chin of KJRH is recovering from a stroke.
  10. This is a bit old, but Westword wrote again about KDVR/KWGN departures. They basically transcribed some brief podcasts a reporter did last November describing her brief five years in TV news. She added a July 2022 update about waiting tables in Winter Park (she now works in marketing for the resort). "Devastating takedown" is not how I would describe it. Some people can handle the life and some people can't. https://www.westword.com/news/ex-fox31-reporter-aimee-lewiss-devastating-takedown-of-tv-news-14792007
  11. Personally, I like the branding concept. But if the station is to leave the cellar, it will be because viewers like the on-air talent, not the graphics or the slogan.

  13. The cost-cutting is inevitable. If NBC drops an hour, everyone else will too. I doubt the scenario of shifting the late-night line-up 30-60 minutes is realistic.
  14. David Oliver is returning to WIBW-TV to be the evening co-anchor, replacing the retiring Ralph Hipp. He's been out of the business for a while, but previously worked at WIBW-TV in the 1990s.

    I imagine most of you saw that NFL hall-of-famer Len Dawson (Chiefs, KMBC-TV, HBO, etc.) died today at age 87. KMBC-TV is in the middle of an hour-long special about Dawson. You might check their website at a later time to see if they upload the whole thing.
  16. WESH couldn't put the news on Sunday night. https://www.adweek.com/tvspy/wesh-in-orlando-evacuated-over-bomb-threat-sunday-night-newscasts-canceled/243623/
  17. This is quite the paragraph from the Deadline article. The demographic focus of the CW will also change over time, Carter said. Historically, shows like Riverdale, All American, Arrow and Supernatural have focused on viewers in their teens through their 30s. The reality, though, is that the average CW viewer is 58 years old, and Carter said that schism explains why the CW is the lowest-rated broadcast network.
