  2. Back then ABC's TGIF block beat CBS' Block Party despite snagging (2) comedies sitcoms from ABC.
  3. She did a facebook video about it and Karyn in her later 50s and I'm glad she gets to keep anchoring noon news & and doing other things. She started at 46 when it was WGNX as Indy/CBS for 10 years. Jump over to WXIA/11 for another 16 yrs and back at 46. WGCL/CBS46 has either tied with 11ALIVE or beating them. There alot of things 46 can do to overtake 11 in other time slots. Karyn been in the market since 1988 for over 30 years,

  5. Lyle Banks as VP and general manager of WISC-TV, in Madison. Most recently VP and GM of Meredith’s WGCL-TV, Atlanta.
  6. From https://magid.com/mentions/live-with-kelly-and-ryan-kicks-off-new-season/ Review based on a national syndicated rating report for the week ending September 13, 2020. Live with Kelly and Ryan (six-week high 1.9 live plus same day national Nielsen rating, up 27% from the week before) unveiled season 33 of its wildly popular franchise and jumped into a first-place tie with usual talk leader Dr. Phil (1.9, steady) in the holiday week session ending September 13. “Live” made the big move despite being preempted in home market New York for memorials on September 11. Ratings for the new season of “Phil” will come out next week. Maury (1.0, unchanged) was far behind in third place. Steve Wilkos (0.9, unchanged) followed. Ellen DeGeneres (0.9, unchanged), tied “Wilkos” but stayed at the lowest rating in the show’s 17-year history for a fifth straight week and was down 53% from the same week last year. National ratings for Ellen’s new season, which did not get underway until September 21, will not be released for another two weeks. The newest strip in first-run syndication was highly anticipated talker The Drew Barrymore Show (premiere week primary run 0.8/3 weighted metered market average), which immediately improved time slots significantly on its CBS O&O launch group. For example, the show took those stations up 33% among women 25-54 and up 50% among adults 25-54 compared to the same week last year. “Drew,” which did not get to air its primary run September 17 in several markets due to US Open Golf on NBC, nevertheless already finished first in its time period in a number of cities such as Buffalo (2.2/6 weekly average, up 57% from year ago). The rookie also got off to a big start in multiple markets with year to year time period increases of 100% in Los Angeles, 100% in Portland (Oregon), 150% in Baltimore, 200% in Louisville, and 200% in Jacksonville. Back in the national live plus same day Nielsens for the session ending September 13, the highest rated daytime show remained courtroom champ Judge Judy (5.4, down 4%), which was still in reruns all week. Judy’s law partner Hot Bench (1.9, steady) was also in repeats but tied “Live” and “Phil” for second place in the daypart.
  7. Ben Sherwood & Zucker cut from the same cloth. So I'm not surprise.
  8. Are they going to dump News Channel 3 branding? I hope not. WREG & WHBQ hands down the best in the market. WMC has sunken and WATN- TEGNA say no more.
  9. WBNS should be groveling to get Jeff Hogan back which I'm sure he sitting on top of the world at WRAL. Jeff and Yolanda would of been great together. Marky -Mark ok but nothing to write home about. For TEGNA it another cheap hire.
  10. What about FOX61? Could that even be an idea?
  11. There were more pictures on the website. I think it top notch and sleek. I wonder if this will be the model for all Gray stations? Job well done 19!
  12. Does every station need to be network affiliation with the number? It just takes away from the station identity and branding. I'm glad they're Local 12.
