    A Sports Team Owning a TV Station?

    The Navajo Nation owns KTNN-AM 660, a 50,000-watt station in Window Rock, Arizona.
  2. 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.

    WBTS - Home of NBC Boston?

    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.

    DMA 193: The Delta News

    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.

    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.

    2017-2018 DMA Rankings (For real this time)

    It's like what Dean Wormer said in Animal House: "Acting like mardek1995 is no way to go through life, son."

    Sinclair, Tribune Close to Merger Deal

    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.

    Preemptions of Network Programming

    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/

    TEGNA Broadcasting and Digital General Discussion

    Because it worked so well for Beatrice back in the '80s.

    Sinclair Broadcast Group - General Discussion

    Hey, no problem. The funny thing is I did a Google search for WOAI and Antenna TV fully expecting the only results would be this thread and/or some of the more insane threads in this forum. Finding the truth was as surprising as anything.

    Sinclair Broadcast Group - General Discussion

    Apparently WOAI posted it on their website earlier in the week: http://news4sanantonio.com/news/features/top-stories/stories/antenna-tv-replacing-live-well-network-18817.shtml

    Sinclair Broadcast Group - General Discussion

    It's being proven in Indianapolis that a network-affiliated station is worth more than an independent. Why give up something so valuable to one of your competitors who just might do something better with that network affiliation?

    I don't see what was so great about the 2002-2014 WDIV logo. That was just as bland and boring as the new one: "Local 4" nickname, white 4 on red background. They've just wandered from one neighborhood in Dullsville to another.
