  1. No, it can't! He worked in Phoenix not sure if it was KPHO or KPNX. Of course WGCL in Atlanta. Scott does weekends, and he definitely should do weekends. Hogan, would be ideal! Also, TEGNA is also moving in.
  2. Ugh stop with the snatch & grabs Kendrick in his early 50s. He probably looking at a few more years before he goes into retirement. I hope and wish they could lure Jeff Hogan back from North Carolina, because Pete eh always been a bore and so is Scott Light. Hogan & Harris would be great.! Rumored for a long time and Harris is apart of the new generation, before she hangs it up. She'll be hitting 50 herself next year. Also add Terri Sullivan, Carol Luper on that BNS-SYX worked at both stations.
  3. One of the last few in the era left. Nov 27, will be his final air date. {getting out while TEGNA moving in] It only a matter of time when others will follow. https://www.dispatch.com/entertainmentlife/20190822/wbns-tv-anchorman-jerry-revish-to-retire
  4. Dispatch towards the end was just like Cox and others. They were desperately getting out of the business. Yes, WBNS has it legacy but from what I was told the children didn't have the interest in television. They didn't care who bought the station. Personally, I told someone that TEGNA would be the one to get the (2) stations. I also think the same thing is going on at Cox. The younger generation in these family dynasty don't see television as a cash cow. Cox, has it hand in healthcare etc.
  5. If the deal was as sour it may seems to be; Hearst which put it bid in would of been great to get Cox Stations. There (3) markets that have conflicts, Orlando, Pittsburgh & Boston, and those could of been iron out. Cox & Hearst both privately held and both have good stations. The new normal broadcasting companies; Sinclair, Nexstar, Gray, TEGNA & Scripps which all are nothing but mediocre broadcasting companies. At least Cox & Hearst standards have always been high. As for Apollo I wonder what their standards will be? [Time will tell]
  6. Apollo approached TEGNA (say what ) https://www.wsj.com/articles/apollo-approached-tegna-about-a-sale-earlier-this-year-11565985568
  7. Definitely by yr end into first of the year.
  8. AJC is reporting that Cynee Simpson will leave FOX 5 on Aug 14 for humanitarian work. https://www.ajc.com/blog/radiotvtalk/fox-anchor-cynne-simpson-leaving-after-six-years-humanitarian-work/lfu6mCl9TWpM6kpf0X2EJN/
  9. KOOL-TV/ Channel 10-1980 KTSP/1988 - Channel 10
  10. WPLG/1988 WHAS 11/1989 WDIV/2001 1990
  11. Fred Griffith from both WEWS & WKYC has passed at 90. https://www.wkyc.com/article/news/local/cleveland/legendary-cleveland-television-personality-fred-griffith-dies-at-90/95-79c6e868-2809-4beb-8a40-f4289c8a9eee https://www.news5cleveland.com/news/local-news/cleveland-metro/fred-griffith-former-host-of-the-morning-exchange-dies-at-90
  12. Scripps & Gray both pinching pennies.. It just seems that they don't value seasoned talent.
  13. Depends on who you ask? WLWT won both households and demos at 11pm & WKRC still won hands down. WCPO third in early evening. https://www.wvxu.org/post/sheree-paolello-mike-dardis-celebrate-ratings-win-their-wedding#stream/0
