    I thought that WJW would be airing Young Shelton since Nexstar signed Young Shelton to many of their TV stations nation wide. WBNX seems to be the first say what they are airing for syndication in the fall time.

    They must have just announced it since I didn't see it when I first went to that link.

    Really, does it need to be phrased so negatively here? They're in my market and they could be a lot worse, like WGCL worse or WWJ-TV non-existent, and they have management which is willing to spend. And when WTMJ is in the market continuing to drag it down, I'd rather watch a great fourth-place news operation trying hard than a third-place one we know can do 250% better (and has). They got to 25 years; there were times we were praying they got to 10 or even five, so it's a major accomplishment to me.


    Exactly.  Out of ALL the stations that gained big 3 affiliations after the Fox switcheroo, WDJT has been among the best. They could be so much cheaper than they are. What's the reason for being hard on them?

    The Vegas case was strange. Channel 21(KUPN -> KVWB), which was wholly owned by Sinclair, went from UPN to WB. Channel 33 KFBT, had just been sold to a company affiliated with ACME Communications (headed by then-WB president Jamie Kellner) and LMA'd to Sinclair. I think the ownership issue was the reason why they didn't pick up UPN, which ended up on low-power Channel 25.

    If the Acme thing was the case, then why didn't UPN just go to 33 as part of the deal which saw Acme and Paramount airing each other's networks in groups where one network was missing a station? One would think it would have been a no-brainer.


    When KASY rejoined UPN after that short break, Paramount had also agreed to have the WB remain on WWHO and WLWC and add it to WTVX. Acme did the same for UPN in Champaign and Knoxville, in addition to keeping it in off hours on KPLRm

    Seeing as how they already provide news for WUHF, unless they have an alternate studio space and control room, they would have to be pre-taped.


    Syracuse is a possibility since they produce both WSTM and WTVH's newscasts, and only the CW has a 10pm show, i'm assuming it's done on the WSTM side?  That leaves the WTVH's side open for doing newscasts for Buffalo, potentially.


    It's gonna be Syracuse. I read that on the article.

    Rockford is also one of the few markets without its own PBS member station, so WTTW out of Chicago is piped in as their default PBS station.

    Don't they also get WHA from Madison as well??

    Kelly can easily slide into Ellen's timeslots, that seems like the easiest thing to do for NBC O&O's. As for Telepictures, I don't think they've announced anything in the pipeline for development, which is odd since they always had something in the cards; they were actually developing a talker with Drew Barrymore at one time.  I do wonder if they started brainstorming ideas since the Ellen controversy exploded, WB always had something on NBC daytime ever since the Rosie O'Donnell days. 

    I thought Rosie O'Donnell was on the ABC stations?

  7. I'm surprised that so many Quad Cities fans cared. I would understand had it been the Packers, the Vikings, Chiefs or Bears playing and it were preempted. I'm also surprised that more NBC stations didn't follow suit or at the least, delegated the game to a junior partner or a subchannel. If Fox and CBS can relegate games to a specific portion of the country then why is KWQC catching hate for their decision?

  8. After two years, evening anchor Shelby Cashman is leaving KOAT to take over the morning spot on KOCO. This isn't her first time in Oklahoma City either.


    This surprises me because I thought Alejandra Briones was next in line to take the morning anchor spot but at the same time, it doesn't as I saw this  eventually coming when Cashman left for KOAT.

    'TAL isn't NBC O&O to air AD (like how most NBC O&Os including WCAU that DO air ACCESSDaily) Ray could be on KTBS instead of KSHV....

    Many non-O&Os and even non-NBC affiliates air AD as well.
