  1. most of the original building has been renovated since 1941... most... one corner has been mostly left to time... the walls and floors of the hallways are still original tiles... the tv sports office and radio networks sales office are old radio studios (the "B" studios, B1, B2, B3, B5). tv sports was 620's studio (b1) until they built the studios in the old auditorium space in the 80s... radio networks sales was one of the "big" studios (B2)... they put up drywall and a drop ceiling... scoot a tile aside and you can look up to the old studio ceiling and the window for the clients booth... part of B2 was divided up in the 70's to make a WKTI studio (B5)... still there, gutted, as sports tape storage... there's a lot of space on the second floor... unusable because there is no elevator up there... a renovation would be $$$ but the building is still solid... lots of odd space they could reclaim by gutting it... they might still end up with too much space... maybe they could share with someone else like KGO/KRON does...
  2. you win the prize... ask yourself how many nexstar stations are doing local news at the same time... how many of those stations are airing the same pkgs from their sister stations... how many producers, technicians, and talent are involved in all this... and how much all of this costs... then consider how much they could save... one national show that covers the same material... rather than 100 stations duplicating efforts... newsnation is not a cable news network... newsnation is an incubator to implement cost-saving measures down the line... those political ad dollars are going to dry up in a week... the cuts are coming... if you though this year was bad... just wait until next year... and if you work in TV... work on updating that resume...
  3. please show me the fcc regulation that covers a hired goon shooting someone... i'll wait... please... research what you are talking about before you come on here spouting off crazy stuff like this... the FCC won't touch this... nobody is going to get sold... you people really hate TEGNA don't you???
  4. 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!!!
  5. 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...?
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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...
  10. 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!!!
  11. 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...
  12. the ratings will surely surge under the eyewitness news brand.... nothing better than a 70's gimmick to bring the viewers in...
  13. 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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
  16. 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...
  17. 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...
  18. the everlasting battle between graphics and the newsroom... most lower thirds have a character limit... most producers hate the character limit... because they can't figure out how to keep anything short... if it were up to some producers, lower thirds would be fancy closed captioning... the real story there was the arrest...
  19. writers, producers, unpaid interns... some anchors skim their scripts for hard to pronounce words... but they don't sit down and fact check it... their job is to read what scrolls up that prompter... i'm ron burgundy?
  20. this pkg is a big disappointment... it has all the makings of something done in-house... at least tegna went outside the hub to get a designer... doubt there will be a warm reception to these from many stations management teams... to go from flashy renderon graphics (which most of the old jbg stations have used since 2004) to... this... this might be the second coming of the burnt orange scripps pack... i give it a few years before it gets replaced... hopefully the rumors of the "alternate package" are true...
  21. i can assure you... everyday health was 100% done in-house and pre-dates scripps ownership of the station... and long before tmj started working with the graphics hub (that did not happen until right before tmj debut the current gfx)... if my memory serves me correctly... that lower third was thrown together in an afternoon... any resemblance to a scripps graphic is purely coincidental... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zo5iF85FGv8 not the same...
  22. newsnet will be one of "those" networks... passed around between forgotten stations in a particular market until it folds... start a budget news network, get budget stations... how many .11's are they on?? the service is probably free for affiliates... newsnet makes their ad revenue off the national life insurance ads... and then there's this... so much for unbiased... (attached for when he deletes it.)
  23. no doubt about it... classic management interference right there... sports broadcasts bring in the big bucks... don't want to piss off a client with your tornado warning ticker covering their phone number... and the postgame sponsor paid for the whole show... not the part covered up by some weather guy with his sleeves rolled up... WGN has only so many games left to milk sweet ad revenue from... and of course... nobody wants to deal with angry cubbies fans... drunkenly hooting and hollering to the poor assignment desk about how distracting the weather double box is...
  24. that is how this industry works now.... look at jeff zucker... the smart people are looking towards the exit... not looking to become a manager...
  25. amusing... WNWT's antenna just so happens to be on a Trump property... "Trump world tower"... coincidence i'm sure...
