  1. Robin Swoboda at WJW/CBS era WEWS TV5
  2. With Wheel/Jeopardy being so popular and tops in the ratings. How much does it cost for the rights for both those shows? Games shows are usually cheaper to produce. Found this article from 2 years ago. Talking about ABC O&O paid 6 figures for the rights (NY& LA) until 2023. FOX was lurking around for the show it states. I do wonder with Scripps axing the two popular game show from their affiliates which by the way won their time period at WMAR, WEWS, WCPO. KNXV I wonder how much other groups are willing to pay for the game show? I do wonder if Scripps have buyers remorse, and would be interested in obtaining them. Maybe part of the Jeopardy deal was to do the show in primetime? Maybe? https://popculture.com/tv-shows/2018/11/05/abc-renew-jeopardy-wheel-of-fortune-contracts-big/ https://variety.com/2018/tv/news/wheel-of-fortune-jeopardy-abc-fox-cbs-1203019794/
  3. I would assume WEWS is their flagship station since the call letters represent the stations owner.
  4. Anne Cox Chambers died on Friday at the age of 100. The daughter of James M. Cox former Governor of Ohio who started Cox Media Empire. Video from WSB-TV. https://www.wsbtv.com/video/?id=4832762 https://www.wsbtv.com/video/?id=4832738
  5. She getting married and moving up the road to OKC. I wonder if she going to go work at KWTV- Congrarts! Always been a fan of hers! Yeah he lost, but do you think he would ever sell WCOV/FOX20? I could see Nexstar trying to get WCOV. Montgomery, market with it being a small market. It funny how 30 years ago: WCOV had a news-team due to being CBS. WAKA was in Selma, and WKAB/WHOA now WNCF newscast was a rollercoaster. Being on again and off again. WSFA always the top dog in the market, and at one time mid 90s WAKA had some steam to challenge them, but that was only a hot minute. Now WAKA & WNCF doing news together. WSFA produces the 9pm on FOX WCOV20.
  6. KING 5 1987 KTUL 1983 WSVN reports about WTVJ-4 late 80s- (A saga Ed Ansin dealt with twice in 30 years.)
  7. The ongoing battle for WJW Cleveland. https://www.cleveland.com/entertainment/2019/09/wjw-channel-8-appears-to-be-staying-in-the-nexstar-nation-of-stations.html
  8. WJBK TV 2 (CBS era) 4pm news 1991 4pm promo WJBK 1992
  9. Another shity ass logo... Welp! A sad state of affairs!
  10. The Weekends they had (2) females Tram Mai now at KPNX and Keisha Grant now at WVIT. Yolanda Harris & Charlene Brown did the 5pm together 2001-2002. Yolanda & Gabe started in 2002-2009. Yeah, when Bob Hetherington left but they had Pete Scoville first at 5pm with Charlene, and he did Noon with Terri Sullivan. I was told he had a disagreement with management. He was on 10:00 news with Lorene Wagner. Sinclair at the time were paying Bob & Lorene big $$$ for lackluster ratings. Bob left in 2001 after being there close to a decade. Lorene & Bob would go on to sell houses. Pete left in scoff and that when Charlene & Yolanda would do 5pm news together and they were getting rid of Charlene, Bob, Lorene, Pete because Yolanda & Gabe were cheap to pay. WJW still sitting in the catbird's seat. WOIO has their drama too. Megan Pringle was on the weekend when either Tram or Keisha left and then Megan was moved to morning news with Terri Sullivan. Then Megan moved to Baltimore. First WMAR now WBAL.
