  1. In Albany, she goes from 11am on WNYT to 7pm on WNYA. That seems like a downgrade to me, especially opposite Wheel&Jep! on WTEN.
  2. Probably the worst View logo they’ve ever had in my opinion and I didn’t think they needed to change the logo. https://logos.fandom.com/wiki/The_View
  3. If you notice on the live stream it’s only “free” for a limited time. I really don’t understand Nexstar’s hesitancy to stream news? Nexstar should be working on one steaming app where you can stream your local station AND the national network. So only if you have cable and get WGN America will you be able to watch, after a certain date.
  4. I honestly haven’t seen anything promoting it other than on WGN America in commercials on WTEN. Are they planning a Roku app...it’s shocking to me Nextar’s stations don’t have Roku apps...still
  5. I was going to say Nicol and Christina have been on the constant on the morning news. Sad to see her leave. Hope they pull from within for the third anchor.
  6. What are your thoughts on there being a NYC Bureau according to FTVLive when there’s no Nexstar station in New York City, that they want to get WPIX?
  7. I noticed NBC CT started a weekly kids show? Any other NBC O&O doing this? Seems like a great idea during this time and looks very well done, 2 episodes are on their YouTube page, the guide says it airs Fridays at 11:30.
  8. Normally when a special report (weather mostly before this) is on WTEN it’s also on WXXA. Yes, WTEN and WXXA have poor daytime lineups. I would infer they would have to add news at 9am when Mel Robbins leaves.
  9. Lately, WTEN and WXXA have been airing paid programs where there should be syndicated shows and the syndicated show title are still on the guide. Last week they put a paid religious show in place of “The Doctors” and today, posts on their Facebook page said WXXA put paid programing where People’s Court should have been. Not sure if it’s because of COVID and the shows are re runs or if this is a Nexstar-wide thing? Normally stations do this on holidays or weekends, but this does seem odd to me.
  10. I am noticing this on NBC mostly. I assume it’s because they don’t have anything to promote. And it seems certain shows are trying to stretch their seasons a little longer because they don’t have much new content. You do have to wonder if this continues will local news try to put some update during the credits? Or why doesn’t the network just promote the next show during the credits?
  11. Ok this would explain why more “Spectrum News 1” reporters have been appearing on Spectrum News Capital Region/channel 9, I had thought they were from NY1 but the content wasn’t city related, good to know.
  12. Also interesting the old and new WTEN logo are there. The old one was used for a live shot yesterday.
  13. This is a really good take on WNYT and even if you look at the new set they got a few years ago, it still resembles the old one in many ways and I do wonder how long before it starts to look dated especially with what WTEN & WRGB have. The lack of WNYT produced content on WNYA is shocking compared to what the others do on their sister station, though they do produce local sports shows on Saturday AM highlighting college sports teams for WNYA. Outside of this, their newscasts still place a much greater emphasis on national news than what WTEN produces, where 98% of the time national n
  14. WTEN actually updated the monitors on set to include Christmas graphics, no actual decorations.
  15. WRGB got these today. Not so sure about the chimes they’re using in between stories. Handful of negative comments on their Facebook page too. 000DCCAE-041B-4CC8-9B83-9AB758041250.MOV 52200541-08CF-4876-AF8A-1D646BFBF2D9.MOV
