    Translation: Jeff was getting too expensive for KDKA's payroll.

    Disney Execs reported to be visiting Cox stations

    "Live. Local. Late breaking. This is ABC2 Action News at 6PM. Coverage you can count on."

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Believe it or not, Nexstar has actually run the ex-MG stations okay for now. How do I know? I used to live in a market with a MG-turned-Nexstar station (WKBN/WYTV). They've done a few decent things like keep veteran talent and even added newscast (ie. made WYFX's 7-9am newscast live finally). Granted, the Youngstown Nexstar duo still plays second-fiddle to locally-owned WFMJ, but at least they're keeping 21 on its toes again compared to 10-20 years ago.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I don't know why Armstrong has to open his mouth considering that Sinclair (and likely its sidecars) are on indefinite timeout. I'll be blunt: if Sinclair had divested to the proper channels instead of trying to sidecar WGN to a F-ING CAR DEALERSHIP, Sinclair might've actually got Tribune, but they got greedy and stupid.

    2018-19 Syndication News

    That's nothing. In Cleveland, WUAB airs FTT at 7am. I think it replaced an infomercial and an airing of Extra but that is a bad place to put it.

    Would make sense, especially if Gray and/or Scripps are terminating the SSA and "Fox 29" moves to WHDT. However, that does leave Gray with a WFLX without any programming.

    FOX/UPN/CW with Eyewitness News or Action News

    Another example would be in Cleveland, when WUAB used Action News until it became "# Action News" (in this case, "43 Action News"). About 2004 or 2005, Raycom unified the branding under "19 Action News", where it stayed until 2015.

    George HW Bush dies at 94

    I imagine that Fox will likely carry the Bush funeral as level 2. However, most stations will take it since Bush Sr was a prominent figure as a former GOP president.

    WUAB taking CW away from WBNX

    Jesus Christ! I can't imagine WBNX having good picture quality at this rate unless Angley ponied up for the latest equipment. And even then...

    November 2018 Sweeps Results

    Or worse...WTSP is competing for 5th place with WTOG and KXTV is behind KQCA in ratings.

    WUAB taking CW away from WBNX

    Sorry to bump, but WBNX has just refreshed its logo for the holidays. And boy is it U...G...L...Y!

    Question about Market/Network Dominance

    Other than "Donovan Live", which you could argue is a mild revamp of the 7pm newscast, WKYC has largely stayed traditional at 6pm and 11pm. As far as WKYC failing in the mornings, I'm going to say this: As Gannett has giveth, Tegna will taketh.

    Even by Tegna standards, it's the stupidest thing I ever saw.

    Gray/Raycom Merger Thread

    Oh I remember. They did put some cash into WNWO after the switch to NBC but it was way too late, Toledo viewers preferred 11 and 13.
