  1. One of those stations, like WGCL, which are seemingly built on Indian burial ground.
  2. The latest FHRITP victim is WBZ's Tiffany Chan (3:12) You'd think this would have been played out by now... https://www.cbsnews.com/live/cbsn-local-bos/video/20210206231633-wbz-news-at-6pm-a/
  3. Maybe. There's a dedicated thread on the subject elsewhere in the forum.
  4. Gray buys Quincy Media https://www.tvtechnology.com/news/gray-tv-acquiring-quincy-media-for-dollar925m
  5. And Gray is the buyer https://www.tvtechnology.com/news/gray-tv-acquiring-quincy-media-for-dollar925m
  6. I'm in the market, and Sinclair-owned Dielectric is headquartered here. You'd think our market would be an ideal test bed, but nope. I hope we finally start to see some action on ATSC 3.0. WPFO has moved its TL to the Raymond WGME stick (it was previously in Litchfield, co-located with Maine Public's WCBB.)

  10. Brokaw's retirement is health-related (he has multiple myeloma, an incurable cancer.)

    In Memoriam

    Quiz show, children's TV host Sonny Fox has died at 95. http://sonnyfox.tv
  12. What are the odds of WJZY making any inroads in those time slots?
  13. The mention of Pluto reminds me that there really needs to be OTT distribution of these diginets; OTA coverage of these networks save the top-tier ones like MeTV is quite spotty. For example, Buzzr is on Pluto.
  14. Five WMTW employees have the 'rona... wmtw coronavirus 11-21-20.mp4
  15. I have a feeling it won't be in Radio One's hands for long. Could iHeart end up with it somehow? It would have to be swapped to keep them under the limit, but it's the kind of station that is right up their alley.
