  1. of course it costs money... everything costs money... trying to get sales to sell spots nobody wants ain't free. time and money spent trying to sell local spots nobody wants to buy... bad investments!!!
  2. i see the new "CNN" (Canned NewsNet) has claimed another victim... funny how mister eric "low power station of the year" wotila has turned his quaint little operation into something that allows owners to threaten their employees... hope its all worth it, assholes... these stations will have NO newscasts once CNN cuts off the newsource gravy train... do they even know...?
  3. noone is saying everyone will work at home... but the people who can, will... if you give them the option, some will take it... and some will not... their choice... as long as the work gets done, who cares??? it is a benefit that makes the job enticing... there are reasons why "tv people" leave it to work in other industries...
  4. how come when a station gets a corporate graphics/music pkg it's lamented as a loss of local identity... but when a station adopts a unique logo brewed up locally... it's "slapped together"??? nobody else in town has a logo like that... and that is the point...
  5. you forgot the asterisks... #1* in their market!!! (*using the measurements that are useful to them...) there will be other things happening to the o&o's much sooner than this sale will... you all will not like them...
  6. so... what is with your obsession with mr. Kim??? never see anyone saying "Leon Black is trying to take over Cox"... same for Dave Lougee... "Dave Lougee is buying up Raycom..." mr. Kim is the only executive you all mention by name... hope it's not race related... just saying...
  7. you people are all off your rockers... this is not what is on bryon allen's mind... period... end of story... this isn't lifetime movies presents tvnewstalk's collective wet dream... maybe TEGNA is appealing to these people because of the way they do things... mark my words... some day you will wish more owners were like TEGNA... when those other stations are going DARK!!!
  8. you said the secret word!!! today's secret word is.... mandate... i guess they forgot about the "mandate" when they gave KVUE a new logo... and WCNC... need to impress tvnewstalk??? use the word "mandate!" works every time...
  9. the ratings will surely surge under the eyewitness news brand.... nothing better than a 70's gimmick to bring the viewers in...
  10. i am going to share something with you... some FACTS... you might want to sit down... are you sitting down??? many of the people making decisions inside tegna came from belo... i know... how could this be?? tegna stations are basically autonomous... but everyone is trying to outdo everyone else... what you are seeing are "belo people"... unleashed and encouraged to try something new... very few things have come down from the top... almost all decisions are made LOCALLY!!! sometimes by former "belo people"... no one is holding a gun to their head... they want to try new stuff... they know it is time to adapt or die... tegna didn't come in and "destroy" WFAA... the people who already worked there wanted to try a different style of news... just saying...
  11. the plan for new graphics was underway at the same time the journal stations were picking up the previous generation of graphics... by the time it was KGUN's turn planning was already underway... it just took them longer than they expected to get to this point... this roll out is over a year behind the original schedule... not sure what got them so off track... the acquisitions likely...
  12. only a handful of their nbc stations used the nbc version of inergy... not worth the extra expense for two stations to use... always enjoy this site... quick to say stations need local flavor... while also saying all stations need to "look/sound like" their affiliation... there are lots of sleepy fox affiliates out there... not everyone is wsvn...
  13. they won't be back... their departures were financially driven... with a convenient side effect of the station bringing in younger talent to replace them... unless they want to come back a much lower salary... no longtime anchor wants to be an mmj...
  14. 90%... probably around 99%... almost everything... even sports... is taken word for word from newsource... not just packages... VOs... VOSOTS... it's all newsource... with maybe a few words changed... not saying filling your show with wire packages is bad... lots of stations do that.... just not to this degree.... they must be pretty confident nobody will ever contest their inability to follow embargoes... just saying...
  15. do you have any evidence to support those claims??? seems to me like a lot of tegna stations are doing fine... even winning awards for their work!!! there is no evidence whatsoever that the graphics and the music have impacted viewership... just a tvnt conspiracy theory... the format??? maybe... but the graphics??? who cares??? one person on facebook??? if you all had your way and brought the industry back to the roarin' 90's that you all consider the golden age... the industry would be dead by 2021. tegna made $552 million last quarter... 2% more than last year... sounds to me like they're doing fine...
