  1. Admittedly, their current logo is a step towards the logo they had in the 1990s. They deviated greatly from it for a while with blue versions. But I agree.
  2. I think the signals in Huntsville are on Hytop, which is to the east of the city?
  3. I think the FCC and DOJ will have a handful here. This looks like a potential Sinclair-Tribune 2.0 with those question marks. Agreed, Jacksonville will get a lot of scrutiny and I think they will have to sell one of them.
  4. That is until WRCB gets sold off...although I'm sure they have received lots of offers.
  5. But if the cap is eliminated altogether?
  6. About the only way it survives is if Trump himself buys it and promotes it online to the MAGA base.
  7. They could either pipe it in via cable or find a somewhat friendly owner to help them out.
  8. They can retaliate by pulling affiliations, but Nexstar will gladly take them on instead.
  9. Does Nashville have a Spanish-language news operation? That could be a potential opportunity for WSMV to set up.
  10. https://www.nexttv.com/news/local-news-stumptown-gets-over-the-hump KPTV (recently acquired by Gray) is the dominant #1 in Portland, OR. After that, it is KATU, KGW and KOIN in that order.
  11. Does Nexstar produce any shows? That would give them a big opening there.
  12. Not legally no, there is pretty much no way they can own stations in 199 markets. It might be a benefit though for Nexstar since they would have full control of it and could place their own programming on it.
  13. That could be the beginning of the big groups actually buying the networks - and pulling Baton-style hostile takeovers.
  14. The one in Macon is a bit puzzling. It's the one Georgia market that there is no Gray presence in, but barring a trade, there is currently no realistic pathway into the market.
  15. It also shows how much Meredith neglected the station. The timing now couldn't be better, since WSB is not the 100-ton gorilla it was due to Apollo and WXIA has been a disaster under Tegna. It seems they are trying to play mostly with WAGA.
  16. Ocala is technically in the Orlando market, but close enough that they'd be interested in a WCJB signal there. I'd think one of the Gainesville signals would be to pool up affiliations (maybe give its CW affiliation a full HD signal as a separate channel).
  17. It makes little difference in such small markets, since it barely adds 0.1 or 0.2 points for Scripps - not enough to get into even one mid-sized market.
  18. Good luck finding a way to get TV air time locally. I doubt KXII will air his ads when he is on a crusade against them, and hopefully KTEN won't pick up the slack either.
  19. That wouldn't be a bad thing.
  20. Had Cox decided not to "survive" on private equity and instead sold out, would they be any better now?
  21. I kind of wish a big local owner like Nexstar or Gray owned WeatherNation since they could use the local stations as someone to work through for national coverage. Local stations have been on the ball tonight.
  22. Fox Weather passed a big test that TWC has failed. Maybe if WeatherNation had a big yet responsible owner they could compete responsibly too.
  23. With WXIA a distant fourth, taking the role of WGNO in New Orleans? You're right, things can adjust based on how stations manage themselves.
  24. It should be a warning to other companies like Graham and Hearst that they may be up next.
