  1. Add John H. McConnell there (the man who brought the Blue Jackets to Columbus)
  2. Univision is exploring strategic options that could result in a sale. https://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/univision-board-set-to-explore-sale-of-company
  3. Stations owned by 7 companies have gone dark on DirecTV over retrans. What do these owners have in common? They're all Sinclair shell companies.
  4. I don't think that is going to happen. Remember that the Sarasota area is part of the Tampa market and it already has WWSB; it really can't support two news operations especially since it already has the four five in Tampa (don't forget Bay News 9). It's like what we had here in NH when WBIN had NH1 News: it was there but nobody really cared about it. WMUR is good enough for us, and I'm sure WWSB is good enough for them. WSNN will more likely be shut down than sold.
  5. Agreed. I think WLNE is the most poorly-run Big 4 affiliate in New England. Only WVII/WFVX comes close, but since that's in a much smaller market it's not nearly as much of a big deal.
  6. Standard Media (sorta) has bought WLNE and KLKN. https://tvnewscheck.com/article/top-news/235076/mcdermott-in-the-station-game-with-wlne-klkn/ Why I said 'sorta': This Standard Media will be owned by Deb McDermott, not Soo Kim. Remember that McDermott was tapped to run the stations that Kim was going to buy had the Sinclair/Tribune merger gone through.
  7. WFTS will be adding 7 hours of new newscasts beginning on the 3rd of June. The catch? Much of it will be streaming only. Say hello to ABC Action News Streaming Now. https://tvnewscheck.com/article/top-news/234783/wfts-tampa-announces-local-news-expansion/
  8. 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.
  9. Forget it. NBC will never return to WHDH.
  10. 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
  11. 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).
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
