    The "3" Thread

    Bah, I like that new WKYC logo. It's simple and to the point, tells you everything you need to know. Hey, when you see that 3, you know it's coming direct from Cleveland. You know what's boring? Those blue-and-white Circle 7s, those suckers are everywhere. You see one of those, it could coming from any of the nine zillion Channel 7s around the nation that were too lazy to come up with something unique. And since I had no clue what the current WKYC logo looked like, I went to their website. It looks like a ne'er-do-well 3 leaning against a wall while a shady peacock looks around the corner for unsuspecting rubes to mug. Hardly trustworthy, I'd say.
  2. All I'm getting out of today's info is that for some reason, I think I really need to go to Arby's after work today. It's my understanding they have the meats.
  3. They're missing a great chance to tap into California's legal growing pot culture... ...eh, growing pot, that's too much of a pun. Let's call it budding weed culture, yeah... ...anyway, now's their opportunity to rebrand themselves something like KRON-IK instead. They could even retire that tired, out-dated Golden Gate Bridge-inspired "4" in favor of four joints in the shape of a "4." "Tired of the fluff on the other stations? KRON 4 News is BLUNT!" I'm giving you a license to print money here, Nexstar. You can thank me later.
  4. You'll have to forgive Eat News. He and Regis have a bit of a history with each other. Every since the vicious taunting, Eat News sees Regis everywhere and this causes him to boldly address TVNT posters' wild misconceptions regarding ratings versus billings.
  5. Ah, I can hear it now: "Oh, golly no, we don't have a deal with those pesky Sinclair types, no way no how. Those would be circumstances a bit too shady. No, we have a deal in place with... er... Cunningham Broadcasting! Like, totally and completely unrelated to Sinclair at all. Yeah, that's the ticket!"
  6. The Navajo Nation owns KTNN-AM 660, a 50,000-watt station in Window Rock, Arizona.
  7. Well, we are one of the murder capitals of the country, you know. Clearly, it's why Sinclair's too afraid to re-start news on KDNL and why companies like Nexstar steer clear of our humble burg.
  8. I think some of you are generously overestimating the intelligence of the average viewer. Most of us have heard the stories from the New World Fox stations that over a decade after they switched networks, they still received calls from viewers wondering why they weren't showing their favorite Big Three network programs. You have people who think the DTV switchover caused over-the-air TV to go away entirely. To these people, a peacock next to a "10" means the same station regardless of location.
  9. I kept scrolling down, got to John Brady, and said to myself, "He looks like the sort of guy who's seen it all, done it all, and knows where all the bodies are buried." Then his biography confirmed it.

    FCC Shutdown!

    So the FCC's still open? Dagnab it! I was ready to rustle me up a posse, bust into the joint, and change everybody's call letters with impunity. Goodbye KRON, hello KFART! Ah well, back to the drawing board.
  11. I'll be honest, I'm going to really miss KNLC. It's been such a fascinating anachronism since it signed on. No matter when and what I've tuned in over the years, the station seemed like it was at least fifteen years behind the times. Still, Larry Rice always had his heart in the right place (if not his broadcast acumen), and this is $3,750,000 that his ministry can certainly use. Also, Weigel seems a decent owner, so I'm looking forward to what they do with the station.
  12. Griffin's purchase of KSBI has nothing to do with a Sinclair quadropoly being illegal. Of course, we know they're not allowed as it is. Even if you count the Nexstar/Mission combo in Little Rock as a quadropoly, the FCC still sees that as two separate ownership groups. But hey, let's say Sinclair was allowed to own all four stations in Oklahoma City. You'd still have eight separate full-power owners in the market: Sinclair: KFOR/KAUT/KOKH/KOCB; Hearst: KOCO; Griffin: KWTV/KSBI; OETA: KETA; TBN: KTBO; Tyler Media: KTUZ; Daystar: KOCM; Ion Media: KOPX. There we go. I hope this puts your mind at rest. To be quite honest, my big concern from this entire thread is whether or not Eat News ever capitulated and bought his kid a pony after all. Because quite frankly, sharks and ponies living together is a far more bizarre union than Sinclair-Tribune.
  13. KTVI in St. Louis is starting an 11:00 pm weeknight newscast on January 18: http://fox2now.com/2016/01/01/jasmine-huda-to-join-fox-2s-shirley-washington-for-new-11pm-newscast/
  14. Thanks for the information re: KMOV. Just so you know, we did cover this in another thread when it occurred: http://forums.tvnewstalk.net/index.php?threads/kmov-adds-4pm-newscast.14955/
