  1. I wonder if Nexstar will actively move the CW affiliations off of competing stations and onto .2s or junior stations they control.
  2. That’s precisely why WOIO will never revive Action News. Besides the in-your-face feel, it relies too much on personality, and Gray being Gray, that’s a no-no. That said, with Gray being in Atlanta, they’re going to keep a close watch on WGCL and WPCH.
  3. Again, it’s Meridian. Considering the competition, WTOK has a serviceable set.
  4. I have a question: What about stations that simulcasts news like WBRE/WYOU? What do they do in the case of sports overruns?
  5. Surprised WJW isn’t taking RewindTV to replace Charge or Comet.
  6. WSBK during the UPN days aired WoF at 6pm ET and at one point moved WoF to 5pm in 2003. Then before finally moving to WBZ, it aired at 8pm during the second stint as “TV38”.
  7. What about legacy UHF Islands like Youngstown?
  8. That’s why any attempt to say that WoF and J! will move to WUAB in favor of some kind of news on WOIO is laughable. I’m guessing since it’s only for two weeks, Sony is willing to tolerate it.
  9. Ironically in Youngstown, WYTV, the original home of WoF and J! in the market until 2010, now airs a 7pm newscast while SSA sister WKBN airs the Sony game shows. In Cleveland, Wheel of Fortune goes up against 7pm news on WKYC and WJW while Jeopardy! goes against 7:30pm news on sister station WUAB.
  10. It’s a unique set that’s not a video wall. In a way, what’s old is new again.
  11. It’s one hour on weekdays, actually. The affiliates are getting back the time The CW is currently using for Jerry Springer reruns. My guess is that Ellen stays at 2pm, with Hot Bench at 3 and Dr Phil at 4. If WFMJ doesn’t fill the 5pm with news, it’s a good chance they’ll throw “You Bet Your Life” in that slot.
  12. I’m still waiting for that mythical 5pm newscast from WFMJ. 4pm in Youngstown is out of the question. As far as “all-news”, WOIO/WUAB seems to be going that route because all that’s left on WOIO are the Sony game shows. I wouldn’t be surprised if WUAB reinstates the 7am newscast and goes a full 2 hours.
  13. It would complete the Portage Crossing development if they went through with redeveloping WBNX/Grace Cathedral.
  14. And deny the majesty of bad lip syncing, a 4:3 aspect ratio, and corny teachings?!?
  15. But seriously, I sort of saw this coming. It’s not a coincidence that Gray was building studios in Atlanta, its flagship city. That said, the FCC will approve this relatively quick unless one city turns out to be a holdup: PHOENIX!
  16. It’s pretty much NewsCentral 2.0 but at Scripps.
  17. Schedule could’ve been this: 4:30-7: Good Morning Show 7-9: CBS This Morning 9-10: Good Morning Show: 2nd Cup
  18. According to Zap2it, Waynesville's Comcast system carries NBC from Jacksonville and CBS/Fox/ABC from Savannah. Plus, the system apparently goes only up to Channel 61, so it's a system Comcast never upgraded.
  19. If it was any other shop, they would’ve re-read the rules to her and suspended her AT WORST. I’m actually glad she took the high road, but STILL...
  20. Back to WOIO’s woes. From relegating Jeff Tanchak to mornings, to firing or forcing out almost every anchor and reporter worth a damn, WOIO is definitely a shell of its former self, all because Raycom wanted to “borg” WOIO into one of its stations, which itself isn’t bad. The problem is that the product was so dumbed down that WOIO now feels bush-league compared to the others. The set is nice and the graphics are nice, but WOIO doesn’t have the “faces” to be competitive, with Chris Tanaka needing a Red Bull and Tiffani Tucker STILL trying to be “Great Value Romona Robinson”.
  21. Ewww! On a more serious note, it’s replacing 4 episodes of Family Feud, so WUAB isn’t losing much. And that’s another thing! What is it with ex-Raycom stations and crappy syndication lineups?!?
  22. Honestly, I like KIRO’s Tonight attempt. Looks clean and simple without being drab. WPXI? Their attempt was good too and yes, the current graphics have serviced WPXI long enough.
  23. It looks fine but it’s going to be pretty dated a few years from now.
