  1. Don't send one-man-band reporters out to do live shots at night on the side of the road-- ever. I don't care if the director was slow in cutting the shot or if the anchor can't see the on-air monitor or if the reporter didn't have a vest. You can't send reporters alone for nighttime live shots, especially on the side of the road.
  2. It's funny this thread got bumped, since I saw the blog post that two former FMB'ers drove up the road to OAN.
  3. Pat McGonigle moves from nights to mornings. The new evening anchor has already been named, but not announced yet. https://fox4kc.com/mornings/fox4-announces-new-morning-show-team/
  4. https://www.wsj.com/articles/warnermedia-and-viacomcbs-are-exploring-possible-sale-of-cw-network-11641436892?st=ie3mbd3zydn37f8&reflink=desktopwebshare_twitter
  5. Long goodbye for Gary Amble: https://www.kctv5.com/news/kctv5s-gary-amble-sets-retirement-date-erin-little-named-chief-meteorologist/article_fd1bfedc-636e-11ec-9b07-5bc350792f24.html
  6. Saturday and Sunday mornings on FOX Business belong to FOX Weather. https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/fox-business-weekend-simulcast-fox-weather-1235125057/
  7. I haven't seen final numbers, but I think this is how it adds up in KC. WDAF wins 4a/5a/6a/7a/8a/9a/12pm/6pm/9pm/10pm KMBC wins 4p (I think)/5p Those are overall numbers, not demos. Viewership is up for most everyone year-to-year.
  8. Someone shot one of the guards KRON-TV uses to accompany its reporters. It happened in Oakland. https://www.kron4.com/news/bay-area/kron4-security-guard-shot-in-oakland/
  9. Meredith stripped their stations pretty hard before the sale. I'm not sure Gray can do much more.
  10. Project: Veritas has struck again, this time at TEGNA. Look through Twitter and you'll find an interview with a former KENS promotions producer, who gave Veritas a diversity/inclusion module from this past summer.
  11. Meredith has been too quick to fire people over the last several years. I would expect any changes Gray makes, are to be for the long term.
  12. Kruse talks about leaving the Q (spoiler: she wants you to subscribe).
  13. I noticed FOX is offering satellite media tours with Amy Freeze this Friday morning.
  14. This will vary state to state, but if refusing a vaccine mandate means being fired, as opposed to leaving on your own free will, a non-compete can be discarded. A few states have also made non-competes illegal anyway.
  15. FOX Weather branding is appearing on the FOX News Edge feed too.
  16. Thankfully, that former KCBD saleswoman doesn't teach social studies.
  17. FWIW, I've been able to watch Comet normally, but in my market, it doesn't air on a Sinclair station. KRCG in Jefferson City continues to struggle with local commercials and newscast graphics, as of Sunday.
  18. Ransomware has Russian links. https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/20/media/sinclair-broadcast-evil-corp-ransomware/index.html
  19. Sinclair statement super-cut
  20. Rumor is SBG stations were hit with another cyber attack this weekend. I don't know if it will affect newscasts.
