  1. Meredith stripped their stations pretty hard before the sale. I'm not sure Gray can do much more.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Kruse talks about leaving the Q (spoiler: she wants you to subscribe).
  5. I noticed FOX is offering satellite media tours with Amy Freeze this Friday morning.
  6. 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.
  7. FOX Weather branding is appearing on the FOX News Edge feed too.
  8. Thankfully, that former KCBD saleswoman doesn't teach social studies.
  9. 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.
  10. Ransomware has Russian links. https://www.cnn.com/2021/10/20/media/sinclair-broadcast-evil-corp-ransomware/index.html
  11. Sinclair statement super-cut
  12. Rumor is SBG stations were hit with another cyber attack this weekend. I don't know if it will affect newscasts.
  13. Albert Ramon is joining WBBM-TV as chief meteorologist.
  14. TV has a long history of second (third, fourth) chances. But, anyone leaving Gray for vaccination reasons would be wise to stay quiet. I already know of a few managers who won't hire a Gray castoff if they know that person refused a COVID-19 vaccine. Jumping to that local school district/hospital/animal shelter for P.R. won't be as easy either.
  15. It had been talked about for a while, but Mark Alford really is leaving WDAF-TV after 23 years. His last day is October 12.

  18. Linda Simmons decided to talk on radio station KSGF about her decision. https://post.futurimedia.com/ksgf/playlist/6/listen-1320.html?cb=1633356586.767696
  19. Bring back in-studio wrestling. By the way, Saturday night is typically the least-watched news of the week for most any station. If WKYC is going to do something different, that's probably the spot to try it.
  20. I watched this morning in the 11:00 hour. It needs work. I saw multiple words misspelled. The "arrow" animation in the monitor behind the anchor is distracting. But, at least they're doing news.
  21. It looks like a few disgruntled people at MSNBC are leaking stories to the New York Post. https://nypost.com/2021/09/26/staff-at-msnbc-are-panicking-over-networks-direction-under-rashida-jones/
  22. I don't see any evidence of this happening company-wide. KATU is re-running some locally-produced specials from earlier in the year.
  23. It looks like he was a good sport about it, and his teammates loved it too. I've seen that happen a few times. In one instance that never aired, but got into the Tribune system anyway, KSWB interviewed Drew Brees as "MOS" about something that happened in La Jolla, California, where he lives.
