  1. Seeing some major changes to WMC in Memphis starting tomorrow, seems like they are moving around their whole daytime lineup according to zap2it. Old Schedule 11 AM - Live with Kelly & Ryan 12 PM - AN5 @ Midday 1 PM - Days of our Lives 2 PM - Kelly Clarkson 3 PM - AN5 @ 3 4 PM - AN5 @ 4 New Schedule 11 AM - AN5 @ Midday 12 PM - Bluff City Life 12:30 PM - Draft Kings Sports Book Report 1 PM - Days of our Lives 2 PM - Dr. Oz Show 3 PM - Kelly Clarkson 4 PM - AN5 @ 4 As far as I can tell, Liv
  2. WILX News 10 in Lansing /Jackson market updated their logo to a red box from the previous blue, also transitioned to the First Alert Weather branding. The graphics look similar to the WAVE/WMBF look. They even did a whole news article about their changes. https://www.wilx.com/2021/08/30/wilx-news-10-announces-new-branding-first-alert-chief-meteorologist-darrin-rockcole-11am-newscast-renewed-focus-original-local-reporting/
  3. Looking at distance, Houston is around 5 1/2 hours from Nola. Memphis is about 6 hours. They could head north to WATN/WLMT since they are Tegna now. KYTX in Tyler, Texas could be an option, but like KBMT I fear they would be too small. Then there is WFAA in Dallas and WXIA in Atlanta, wile a greater distance... still large facilities to handle extra staffing.
  4. Big news for them. Gray is HQ in Atlanta and will give them a Flagship in CBS 46 WGCL (A city they also announced they are building a whole studio city in the metro... new studios for 46?). Also, helps them complete their Alabama cluster with getting Mobile, something Raycom never did. Also gives them every major market in Tennessee, South Carolina and Missouri. Plus Arizona and Nevada. Lot of good synergy with this purchase and helps them grow into a major player like Nexstar and Sinclair have in the past few years. Interesting note in the press release: " Gray currently operates
  5. Coahoma County which Clarksdale, MS is located in, does actually belong to the Memphis DMA. Also Cox owns both WABG in Greenville and WHBQ in Memphis, so I wouldn't see Gray picking up that cluster.
  6. Both WTVM and WLTZ website now confirm the Shared Service Agreement. Looks like WLTZ will get a new logo, now Local 38. "WTVM News Leader 9 is pleased to be able to provide WLTZ NBC 38 with some of the market’s top-rated local newscasts from WTVM for the WLTZ audience beginning November 23rd. The partnership between WTVM and WLTZ means we will continue to explore ways to enhance our service to the local community. That service is always focused on expanding the ways we can bring timely and essential local news, local sports and wea
  7. Looks like WAVE 3 launched their new VizRT graphics. With an orange and blue version of the Gray graphics. Gone is the great custom look they created.
  8. Seems like Gray is at it again. A reporter for WLTZ in Columbus, Georgia has reported that Gray has agreed to purchase the NBC and CW affiliate from SagamoreHill Broadcasting. To merge it with already owned ABC WVTM 9 and operated WXTX Fox 54. Will be interesting to see how this plays out in a tiny market with only 4 stations. No word if any other SagamoreHill stations are sold.
  9. I will be honest this all sounds no different than what Raycom did back in Hawaii. Raycom owned KHNL NBC 13 and KFVE MYTV 5 while KGMB CBS 9 had a different owner. Raycom took over KGMB (CBS) and moved the whole station to channel 5. Channel 9 became MyTV as K5. If I am not mistaken only KGMB (5) and KHNL (13) were owned by Raycom? So it was legal since they didn't technically own KFVE (9) (Now KIII). Also Nexstar just had this happen in South Texas, KVEO was NBC and KGBT was CBS 4. CBS 4 was given to Nexstar from the Sinclair/Tribune Mishap , affiliation and people and property
  10. Looks like Gray just took the 5 from the current KYES MyNetwork TV logo and slapped a CBS network eye next to i t.
  11. Rather Breaking News in Alaska.... https://www.ktva.com/story/42439484/gci-sells-ktva-to-gray-television GCI sold its CBS programming to Gray and Gray immediately moved the CBS affiliation to their already owned Channel 5 to create CBS 5 Anchorage. Note to point out that Gray already owns NBC station KTUU. https://www.ktuu.com/2020/07/31/ktuu-expands-into-southeast-alaska-and-kyes-launches-cbs5-anchorage/ Gray also bought the CBS Southeast Alaska stations and NBC Southeast Stations from GCI as well. Quote from the Gray
  12. Saw this posted on Facebook. Seems like WOIO has either got a new set or updated the existing one. Practice is ongoing and will debut soon according to Meteorologist Samantha Roberts. Looks like no more green screen.... video wall it is. S
  13. As far as I can tell I don't think the ex-Raycom stations will be changing their looks since they already used Arc. KYOU was an exception since it used revrocket as its web host, same host still being used by KNIN Fox 9. It seems that KYOU, which was produced out of WXIX in Cincy under Raycom had its newscasts (or at least weather segments) moved to new sister station KCRG 9 in Cedar Rapids, IA, which makes sense since they are much closer to each other. I think KYOU swapped to the new Arc look at the same time as KCRG 9 did since they had their operations moved to Iowa from Ohio.
  14. The Legacy Gray stations are switching to Washington Post ARC from Clickibility, which is the same platform the former Raycom stations currently use. While all the former Raycom stations have the same basic design, the Legacy Gray stations are keeping the "look" of their former Clickiblity but the underpinnings are now from ARC. The main thing you notice is the Weather Pages from Legacy Gray and former Raycom are the same basic design. It has yet to be seen if the former Raycom stations will switch their design to fall in line with the Legacy Gray stations or not.
  15. Seems like WREG is having "renovations" done according to Tim Simpson their Chief Meteorologist. Not sure if this means they are getting a new set or not from their new corporate owner Nexstar.
