  1. I’m back again, for good this time.

  2. It's been awhile, but I'm back...
  3. Jennie Stencel, the stand-up comedian KENS hired last year to do the traffic report is leaving the station already and headed back to North Carolina where her husband and kids still reside. I was never a fan of her so glad to hear this news. Kinda sad their newbie ND took the easy way out and wouldn't even wish her the best in her future endeavors. Did she really leave the station on good terms like she said? Or maybe's he just new and not used to doing media interviews. Kinda soured my taste about him. Anyways, I guess they got tired of going through so many traffic reporters over the la
  4. I think he's counting Time Warner Cable News.
  5. WJZY Adds Two and Moves One http://www.adweek.com/tvspy/wjzy-adds-two-and-moves-one/151639 There's more changes in Charlotte, this time at WJZY FOX46. Will moving their main anchor Barbara Lash to mornings and bringing in a young reporter from Houston as her replacement help them? Main anchor Barbara Lash (center) is being moved to the mornings. Kayla Ayres (right) is being hired from KPRC Houston to replace her as main anchor And the one on the far left, Ashlee McGeehan, is being hired as a reporter from WJET Erie Stay tuned as
  6. From TVSpy: Sinclair Teams up with Michael Eisner to Make Syndicated Shows By Kevin Eck on Jun. 30, 2015 - 1:01 PM Sinclair Broadcast Group and Tornante Company have created a joint venture to “acquire, create, develop, produce and distribute first-run syndicated television programming.” Former Disney CEO Michael Eisner owns Tornante, the creative end of the deal. The two companies will split ownership 50-50 and plan to develop syndicated shows with a “unique take” on everyone’s favorite afternoon fare of comedy, talk shows, game shows and court shows. “By ow
  7. KENS-TV morning anchorman Mat Garcia leaves job http://blog.mysanantonio.com/jakle06/2015/06/kens-tv-anchorman-leaves-job/
  8. I'm not familiar with their new weekend morning girl so I can't tell you how she is but I saw a clip of their new chief meteorologist Angelica Campos and god she seems so stuck up, fake and plastic. She clearly isn't ready for a major role like the chief meteorologist position and there are far more qualified candidates out there too (but I know this is Scripps we're talking). I just can't seem to warm up to her and frankly she was kind of hard to watch. I also saw a clip of their old weather lady Pat Brown and she seemed far more likeable and genuine. Hoping she will land somewhere, becau
  9. No, this is the public access channel for Boston that is still in operation today: https://www.bnntv.org/
  10. So WJCL moved their site to Hearst Television's CMS provider, Lakana (the former Internet Broadcasting). However, they are not using the layout that the other Hearst stations use. Rather, they are using the same layout that Nexstar is rolling out to their stations. It makes you wonder, if the other Hearst stations will get this layout in the near future, because it's responsive and the existing Hearst sites are not (they load a separate mobile skin when I browse on my iPad, for instance). Check it out at http://www.wjcl.com/
  11. I see where you are coming from and I sort of agree. The recession hit them hard, and they basically laid off a ton of reporters at their stations and started putting photographers in front of the camera. You could tell they were cost cutting. But the recession was a wake up call for all broadcasters and most made cuts around that time, Scripps wasn't the only one. Of course the SNI spinoff happened around the same time. But I don't think they were necessarily a bad company around that time, they were still half decent. I would say their destruction started around 2012 when they decid
  12. It's kinda sad to see the rapid destruction of what was once a respected broadcaster...there's nothing wrong with making digital a priority but you've gotta have a healthy balance of it along with broadcast. It's not just limited to Scripps but they are the worst when it comes to integrating broadcast and digital. It already seems like broadcast is an afterthought to them. Hire the youngest most inexperienced people on-air (and force out loyal long time employees because they are basically too old), put a paywall on your stations website, dump all your syndications for cheap inhouse shows
  13. Erica Hernandez at KSAT moves in front of the camera now as a reporter, used to be a producer. She just filed a report for the 5.
  14. KSAT has hired a new reporter, Concetta Callahan who comes from KOLD-KMSB in Tucson. I just saw her doing the "Morning Headlines" segment a few minutes ago. Also I believe she anchored the morning news this weekend. I'm not sure what her role is just quite yet. You've read this here first before MySA or any industry website.
