  1. This is what they did. Joy tossed to commercial and then it was just Joy and Sara. The show ended up being mostly audience questions, which was actually great to watch!
  2. But it was then revealed they were actually negative. What a wild show.
  3. I honestly don’t understand why they don’t try to put more News Nation programing on FOX/CW affiliates that Nexstar owns. Wouldn’t it be the best way to promote the network?
  4. Yes, I saw in in the promo they released last week: I thought the same about it looking like the original logo, though with the 25 there, I want to read it as “The Iew” …I wonder if a version of the original theme makes a comeback too.
  5. “Also down the road may be a streaming version of NewsNation.” https://www.nexttv.com/news/perry-sook-84-of-the-country-has-no-earthly-idea-what-newsnation-is The fact that this is not the priority RIGHT NOW is the problem. So, if you have brand recognition but people don’t get the cable channel what’s the point?
  6. In a Instagram live with his wife, Al said they didn’t believe they would have as much access to the olympians, I also feel I heard this elsewhere too (maybe some of the Today show XM podcasts). The thinking is that they would only be able to zoom interview the olympians. So, for planning, they thought the show would be boring and only planned for 1 week it sounds like.
  7. The changes continue at WNYT-NewsChannel 13 in Albany. The channel has no official morning or 11pm newscast now. Interestingly, from what I understand, the ratings haven’t suffered drastically. https://www.timesunion.com/kristi/article/Paulina-Bucka-leaving-WNYT-after-four-months-16350250.php
  8. I noticed WTEN doing it at 6pm, and the actual channel numbers to find News Nation on.
  9. I actually liked Dan’s show on MSNBC back in the day. I just don’t understand how this channel can be successful without a streaming option…why is Nexstar putting all this money in a cable channel? I mean can’t they at least offer it over the air to it’s affiliates sub channels?
  10. I thought the same, biggest change since Lydia was let go. I wonder what it will do to long term ratings in the long term?
  11. I’ve often said this before, no focus on digital or streaming. I will say WTEN does often does online only (political or entertainment) specials but there’s not a station wide focus on digital.
  12. Do any other ABC stations (on the east) start The 10 Commandments on at 8 instead of 7? WTEN has ALWAYS done this, so the 11pm News won’t be on until 12:44 and it is Sam DiMascio’s last night anchoring, she is leaving to be with her family.
  13. I asked a meteorologist about this and the one on top is for TV and bottom is for social and apps. So no, no new look.
  14. I’m actually surprised Nexstar doesn’t have a nightly program across the state, now that they have an affiliate in every market. Empire State Weekly (from WTEN) airs on the weekends across NY. A 5:30 show called Empire State Tonight would seem logical on all NY Nexstar stations.
  15. This I don’t know why Nexstar doesn’t have an app for Roku, etc where you can watch your local Nexstar station and the News Nation broadcast. CBS is doing it very well and they must make a profit to continue it.
