  1. I remembering saying a few years ago that WAGA would do an afternoon news in the 4pm block even with Judy doing well. I'm not surprise with FOX O&O stations. I think down the road we will see more of this with FOX O&O. It also an election year too, and stations want as much money as possible. I'm surprise WAGA and all FOX O&O not starting their morning news at 4AM.
  2. Robin Swoboda at WJW/CBS era WEWS TV5
  3. 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/
  4. I would assume WEWS is their flagship station since the call letters represent the stations owner.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  7. KING 5 1987 KTUL 1983 WSVN reports about WTVJ-4 late 80s- (A saga Ed Ansin dealt with twice in 30 years.)
  8. 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
  9. WJBK TV 2 (CBS era) 4pm news 1991 4pm promo WJBK 1992
  10. Another shity ass logo... Welp! A sad state of affairs!
  11. 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.
  12. sooner or later they will- How was Jerry caught up in this mess? Jerry about to retire and with his background he was caught off guard just like everybody else...WTH?
  13. WOW..Saw on NBC4's feed on Facebook https://www.nbc4i.com/news/local-news/10tv-meteorologist-mike-davis-charged-with-child-pornography/ https://abc6onyourside.com/news/local/10tv-meteorologist-mike-davis-arrested-on-child-pornography-charges

  16. TEGNA & Scripps are killing their stations with the current crap. Again, 19 despite it silliness it has more muscle than KYC & EWS... just sayin'-
  17. WGCL is still in 4th place it hasn't overtaken 11 Dead as some of the comments the ppl from AJC say. In one of the last few ratings 11 & 46 both tied in some newscast, but it isn't 3rd place exactly. Maybe 11pm, but not quite there. WGCL makes money but it not making the same as the other three stations. WSB, WAGA & WXIA were all taking in over 100 million and when they listed WGCL it didn't state how much they were raking in. Yes, that was probably over a decade ago. WGCL yes it has a solid newscast, but it can beat 11. WXIA product become too TEGNA and Meredith no better. I'm not saying they should do a daily news, but just start over. CBS 46 has become a laughing stock, and ppl are still laughing. What happened to Channel 3 News... "See the possible" ?
  18. I mean both stations were apple & oranges back when WAGA was CBS. Despite the numerous ownerships WAGA was solid. It slipped to third a few times, but was able to rebound. WGNX was an Indy outlet that just got a news department 30 years ago late 88/89, and WGNX got the CBS affiliate at the 11th hour, and as time went on. Tribune was only interested in being independent. When WGNO & WGNX started to get a network affiliation. They didn't do too much investment, but WGNX was solid. As for Meredith, they bought the station with hopes of making it something big. However, when numerous management styles, name branding etc. It just hasn't done much for WGCL. Meredith should return the WGNX call letters back to them and sell the station, and start all over like WIAT in Birmingham did in late 90s.
  19. WSYX: Kelly Clarkson 9AM, Rachel Ray moves to 10AM, Tamaron Hall at 3pm and Good Evening Columbus 7pm news and E.T moves back at 7:30pm - Access Hollywood moves 1:05 AM & The Doctors moves at 1:35AM WCMH: NBC4 Midday at 11am hour, Daytime Columbus at 12N, Mel Robbins Show at 2pm WWHO: Wendy Williams 1pm
  20. Don't know how she sunk the ship when she was at 19 in Cleveland & KMOV. WGCL has been a titanic ever since Meredith bought them over 20 yrs ago.
  21. His final newscast a few weeks ago
  22. Back in the day and when I say back in the day. Late 70s/early 80s the networks were in talks of doing an hour-long network news. However, affiliates stood strong and networks were hammering to push that. However, back then when it was only (3) networks at that time it could of been the thing to do. However, when you have 24/7 news; if those broadcast networks did that. They would need to pour more resources into doing international news instead of fluff pieces. With NBC having MSNBC & CBS with CBSN and not sure what ABC has a digital platform. I don't see it, because these companies are just about the bottom-line. What going to make them some money?
  23. 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.
