  1. Why exactly do they need another 4pm news? At what point does someone in management say this is overkill?
  2. Does Milwaukee need another 4pm news?
  3. Vanessa Echols at WFTV set to retire next month after 40 years. https://www.wftv.com/news/local/ive-been-blessed-vanessa-echols-announces-her-retirement-after-40-years-news/4QBZE5QO3FC3LKQSJH4MBN4YWQ/
  4. Fanchon Stinger will leave FOX59 in May.
  5. That a nice time line you have here. By chance would you do one for the 70s or 80s-2000s. Job well done!
  6. Would you say MaryAnn Childers & Linda MacLennan were successful?
  7. Actually it was better than some small market stations who budget much cheaper.
  8. Are people not paying for Netflix, Hulu, AmazonPrime, AppleTV, Disney+ and many other streaming platforms? Believe it or not streaming is the future and that someone told me at AT&T that why they created their own. You can get cable from Hulu and Youtube. I know very few people who still have cable.
  9. Despite WSB Cox/Apollo deal- WSB believes in getting talent from the competition and it has. John Pruitt had more than one stint at WSB and when he went to WXIA in 1978. He returned to WSB in 1994. Richard Belcher & Sally Sears both husband/wife worked at WAGA and landed at WSB and same with Pam Martin too. WSB plays for keeps. The one time WSB did get outplayed was both WSB & WXIA were courting Brenda Wood after she left WAGA. Brenda, thought she would end up at WSB and was rumor to succeed Monica a few years later. WXIA got Brenda while WSB was still making their deal. Karyn was weeknight anchor at 46 and weekend anchor -then morning anchor/reporter at WXIA, and returned to 46. I guess despite Karyn almost 60, WSB does see her as an asset to the community, but WSB is also playing a chess game too. Monica going to WGCL, but will get Karyn at WSB for all the gold. I agree with you and Brenda Wood, that Karyn is the most veteran anchor in Atlanta. Richard Belecher and Mark Winnie still on investigation beat at WSB. Russ Spencer at WAGA, and Hullinger at WXIA and news or sports. Hullinger been in the Atlanta market since 1984.
  10. Not necessarily Shannon Walshe & Tiffany Diaz once worked at 46 during the WGNX days and were reporters at WSB-TV. Tiffany was a freelancer. Also Lori Wilson works at WSB-TV, but was at WGCL before going to Indianapolis and coming back to Atlanta. Linda Stouffer as well too was filling in.
  11. Say what you will about WSB-TV & WGCL-TV and it looks like another Atlanta icon changing stations. Karyn Greer who been at both WGCL & WXIA. She heading over to WSB-TV. https://www.ajc.com/life/radiotvtalk-blog/veteran-cbs46-anchor-karyn-greer-replacing-jovita-moore-as-wsb-tv-evening-anchor/4FEG6I4FJ5CU3F6BPHSXTXOCBE/
  12. I agree he should be on Today not MSNBC. Ali Velshi fill-ins and does weekends, but he should have his own weekday show.
  13. Huel Perkins & Monica Gayle both calling it quits at FOX2 at the end of March. https://www.deadlinedetroit.com/articles/29968/going_out_together_fox_2_detroit_s_huel_perkins_and_monica_gayle_announce_retirement
  14. Say what you will about Scott Jones at FTVLive.com; he lays it all out about TEGNA/SG/Cox and it a good read. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2022/2/23/the-tegna-deal As well as this too- https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2022/2/23/the-inbox This may answer some of your questions and where things are headed down the road.
  15. I can't see how- WTLV & WJXX are a duopoly as well WJAX & WFOX as well too. There some loose ends have to be tied up.
  16. Soo Kim was a shareholder or on the board at TEGNA. Soo Kim had issues with TEGNA leadership under Lougee. Deborah McDermott. who ran Young Broadcasting runs Stand General. Standard and Apollo are not the same two different equity firms with tv station in the company portfolio. As much as FTVlive.com Scott can be. He had alot of stories about Kim and Lougee at TEGNA.
  17. FOX 5 will still be #2 and WSB will still be #1 WXIA will still be #3 until WGCL passes them up. WAGA's philosophy has been what's WSB doing? How are they covering the story? Let try to out do them? Despite Cox/Apollo deal one thing for sure they can screw up any station, but not the mothership WSB-TV. FOX doesn't want WHBQ and there was a reason why they got sold. FOX didn't do much investment into WHBQ.
  18. Sinclair bought WSYX in 1996 not sure when they merged the buildings into each other. FOX 28 left their studios on Sunbury Rd and moved into WSYX's studios at 1261 Dublin Rd. The FOX set was in the same studio directly across from the two sets WSYX had at the time for their broadcast.
  19. WOIO, WDJT and even WGCL were able to compete with their rivals. All (3) have achieve something and they were able to win certain newscast. Not all, but were able to have a fighting chance. If CBS is serious they will invest and try something new and you never know, they might do well. Anything is possible in this era of tv.
  20. Wow! I was hoping Nexstar would snag this station. Allen on the move and is TEGNA his next stop?
  21. I say either get Fanchon Stinger who once worked at FOX 2 and yeah her situation was over a decade ago, or Rhonda Walker from Local 4. I also say Jeff Vaughn and yeah he in Sunny California, but he been on Ch 4&7 . Jeff Vaughn with either Rhonda or Fanchon could be the evening face. Or bring in Lucy Noland those just some names in the market.
  22. It airs at 1PM EST. You think Charles David Todd MTP Daily going to get the axe? Garrett Hake is a good reporter. Kate Snow that a good choice. There a lot of good people on the bench waiting to get a chance.
