  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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.
  5. The other parts of the package? Imagine if Sky Sports was in America, and imported their graphics. Not that I'm complaining.
  6. 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.
  7. Scott Jones of FTV Live reported that as of the last day of sweeps, WBTV was on track to beat WSOC
  8. One of the times I tuned in, they mentioned they are doing Tornado Warnings old school b/c the station lost the capacity to do closed captioning.
  9. It sounds like that until WCTI figures out what is going to happen with their studio, they will set up shop at Craven Community College. That college is home to Public Radio East, the NPR member for the market.
  10. I think you are right . The main sign? The fact they are using the current Sinclair Graphics package. Prior to the storm, WCTI had not adopted that package, still using the graphics package from when they were owned by Bonten. Also, the reason that the station is going on, and off the air is to conserve fuel to the generator at their transmitter, as on their web-only broadcast they made a request for diesel fuel to be sent to their transmission facilities.
  11. They haven't switched out streams let. The WCTI Stream is Listed under "National Event Stream 1" on their website. They really didn't plan contingencies for studio flooding... they are literally using 1 camera, 1 Microphone under a Tent.
  12. 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.
  13. Here is a link for the terms of the agreement. (section 9 covers the breakup fee) And here is a link that mentioned that if it isn't approved by the 8/8 deadline, then Tribune doesn't have to pay the breakup fee. Note, I'm not a lawyer, but my interpretation is that if the deal is terminated b/c of governmental order, then Tribune doesn't have to pay the fee, unless if Sinclair terminates the deal prior to the FCC denies... which knowing them, they will... If Tribune doesn't have to pay the fee, AND is willing to honor the Fox portion of the deal, then they will get much needed cash infusion.
  14. 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
  15. 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
