  1. I wonder if it's an effect of the sell of the duopoly to Nexstar? Looking up zip codes in Nexstar Markets, and it seems their agreement with YouTube TV only include their Big 4 affiliates, and not their CW/MyTV affiliates, regardless of duopoly status.
  2. And IIRC, that is what is currently done with WTTV and WXIN
  3. They got a huge huddle to overcome. Yes, their has been a shake up top in ratings in the past year, but both WSOC and WBTV have brand recognition in the community, with WCNC behind. (WCCB smartly only does a 10:00). The only way WJZY will gain traction in the market? If the new owners at both WSOC and WBTV cut the on air talent. Plus, the "All Local" marketing will not work, since WBTV has no non-local programming beyond their network affirmation.
  4. According to a source at WBTV, their plan is to go all local outside of Network Programming. What they are doing different is they are producing local lifestyle programming instead of all news.
  5. The only way that the GMA 3rd Hour will work is if they trade the 9:00 hour for the 1:00 Hour, regardless of who hosts it. Not going to happen because of Live with Kelly and whoever is co-hosting now occupies that slot* * I know that it's an Syndicated show, but it's syndicated by ABC, and airs on ABC O&O's
  6. Yep. Although on the app perspective... They already separated them out. Fox Sports Go is for the RSN's, while the Fox Sports App is for the properties retained by Fox
  7. It depended. Most of the time, FS1/Fox produced the telecasts. However, if Fox had more than 3 games to produce, and if one of the two teams on the FS1 game was on an FSN station, then they simulcasted the FSN feed over FS1. Not to be confused with Fox hiring a local broadcast team to call a game to be produced by Fox.
  8. The other parts of the package? Imagine if Sky Sports was in America, and imported their graphics. Not that I'm complaining.
  9. It appears that WXLV is in the beginning stages of relaunching their in-house news department. Looking at the Sinclair Jobs page, they have openings for nearly every position.
  10. Scott Jones of FTV Live reported that as of the last day of sweeps, WBTV was on track to beat WSOC
  11. This guy's name is Pat Feldbelle. WITN recently posted video of their Hurricane relief fundraising tape from after Hurricane Floyd 20 years ago, and it sounds like the same voice who narrated that video also voiced that open.
  12. The two conferences that are listed were snatched up by ESPN for their ESPN+ Service... However, The American Athletic Conference Rights are up for grabs after 2018-19, and the commissioner is open to all options.. and looking at the footprint of the combined company, compared to the conference footprint... Only three schools* (Temple, University of Houston, and University of Connecticut) would not have a station owned by Gray Television. It would be somewhat of a coup for Raycom Sports to snag those rights (while the schools aren't flashy, they are competitive), but in this era where most companies are willing to spend on sports, while ESPN is in cost-cutting mode, anything is possible. * The Naval Academy would also not covered by a Gray Television Station, but they signed a side deal with CBS Sports Network for their home games
  13. What I *think* they are doing is recreating the scoring pylon that you get if you attend a race. All I got to say... it's better than their attempt 4 years ago
  14. I was (sorta) wrong... I totally forgot about the fact the Spectrum Auction made it where Commercial Stations can share with Non-Commercial Stations in the same market. This shows that Desperation makes strange bedfellows. The Speculators who were stuck with stations they didn't want, NBC, who needed to improve their status for their much wanted O&O... and WGBH, who as a public broadcaster is likely willing to find alternative revenue makers for the further public broadcasting cuts. That said, this is gonna to be a Neilsen nightmare (See WBMA), with confusion over who is watching on WYCN, who is watching on WBTS-LD, who's watching on WNEU-DT2, and who is watching on WMFP.
  15. I agree. If there was ANY Interest by WGBH to sell, they would have sold off one of their signals in the incentive Auction, and channel share on which of the two wasn't sold back to the FCC.
