    Out & About

    Sad news coming from Guam. Rex Sorensen, the owner of KTGM and KEQI (the ABC and Fox affiliates on Guam, respectively) and several radio stations there, passed away on Sunday. He was 73. Employees sharing their memories.

    Forget it. NBC will never return to WHDH.

    Cox sells majority TV interest to Apollo

    Here's a map of what Apollo's new broadcasting unit could look like if it does buy Cox (blue) and Northwest (red), along with the Nexstar-Tribune conflicts (green). https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mw0nLbOUhIOr2NBJ_8NTran9hqqR-Pih&usp=sharing

    KVEO: Goodbye NewsCenter 23, Hello Local 23 News

    Not even close. Nexstar did do a great job with the graphics, but as long as the newscast is still in El Paso, they're not even going to be close to either KRGV or KGBT. Also worth noting is that KVEO only produces 2 newscasts (at 5:00 and 10:00).
  5. Not sure how we missed this, but a few months ago KVEO ditched their old NBC O&O graphics for the new Nexstar package and "This Is The Place". KVEO posted their 10:00 news on Monday on YouTube (there's a talent intro at 13:17): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6OFHCf-kTXM

    Out & About

    My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone at KVII and the Montgomery family. I would also like to make very clear that now is not the time to make any comments about Sinclair regarding this situation. This could have happened anywhere.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    If Nexstar does what they need to do and sells the stations they need to sell, then yes, they should get the OK from the FCC.

    KTVA newsroom sustains major earthquake damage

    It's such a shame. GCI did such a nice job with the KTVA studios after they bought it. It's going to be extremely difficult for them to recover. Neither KTVA nor KTUU has a live stream going at this point.

    Scripps - General Discussion

    Interesting that KGUN has a new Scripps website when it still doesn't have the Scripps on-air graphics AFAIK.

    Scripps - General Discussion

    The situation was a hoax.

    Scripps to acquire Cordillera

    There is no SSA between WILX and WSYM. WILX does produce WSYM's newscasts, but otherwise Scripps operates the station themselves.

    Scripps to acquire Cordillera

    I wonder if Gray will buy KZTV and keep the SSA with KRIS, similar to the situations they'll have in West Palm Beach and Boise once the Gray-Raycom deal is complete. I doubt it, but it's possible.

    Gray/Raycom Merger Thread

    That would make sense. WSWG's signal doesn't reach Albany at all, whereas WSST's does. In a market where cable penetration is very low [AFAIK], that's a big deal.

    The Tribune Saga, Part 3: New Sale Talks

    This is WORSE than Sinclair. Just when we thought we could breathe a sigh of relief, we have to hold our breaths again. Disgusting.

    2018-2019 DMA Rankings (The Reboot)

    For those who want it, here is a market map from 2017; it's mainly a radio market map but you can see the TV markets defined by red lines. If you zoom out, you should be able to get a fairly good look at each market.
