  1. He was in my City for a bit too at KSLA.
  2. This will likely be thrown out of court. Honestly, this is the most petty thing that I have ever seen him do and this is coming from a RIGHT-leaning independent. Tell me. Did Obama ever sue Sinclair?
  3. I mean, it's not like this hasn't been rumored before. Remember when Gray was sniffing around when Nexstar was rumored to be acquiring Tegna?
  4. Maybe no one else put their foot down. I mean, there is always going to be that station that goes a different route.
  5. I'm willing to bet that they are gonna only change the graphics and keep the music.
  6. Idk if this has been covered here yet, but Thanh Truong is leaving WWL but he plans to stay put in New Orleans. His final day was today. He is going to launch a True Crime podcast with his wife. Didn't he JUST move to the Noon newscast not too long ago from the later shows?? https://www.nola.com/news/crime_police/article_9436cff8-51cf-11ea-a092-9f8736ea6a46.html https://www.wwltv.com/article/news/local/thanh-truong-says-farewell-to-wwl-tv/289-af96d62c-8b35-41ea-818e-d0211fbcc4de
  7. Slightly off topic but WBTV isn't the only Graycom station dragging it's feet replacing people. KSLA has only one sports anchor. Furthermore, they now has solo anchored newscasts the whole day. The weekend morning newscast doesn't even have an anchor. It's just Jessica Moore giving weather updates and then prepackaged stories throughout. Somehow, KSLA manages to have the largest weather team though as they have four meteorologists in contrast to the three at KTBS and KTAL. What is with that?
  8. Y'all forget this dude was a comedian at first. Maybe this is all part of his act.
  9. I watched him on both KSLA and KTBS. Met him once. He was amazing and he was very chill. He is a legend and he will be a part of the heart of Shreveport forever. R.I.P. Bob.
  10. This actually may still be a possibility. I mean, after all, Nexstar simply moved the CBS affiliation as well as the rest of KGBT's spirit to KVEO. What can stop them from simply parking ABC on 56.2, MNT on 56.3 and then selling off WTVQ's license to Gray (which then moves the CW affilation to it) or some small company that would place whatever diginet they wanted on the primary. You know besides the gang of diginets they already have?
  11. This really doesn't surprise me. I have quietly speculated for some time that if Sinclair had to cough some stations to Nexstar, these would be two of them (I had assumed that KVEO was in the same situation as KSEE in which it could legally create a duo with KGBT.) What surprises me is that there weren't more stations going to Nexstar in this. I could have seen one or two more markets that Nexstar would have been interested in.
  12. In regard to Tampa, what was so hard about getting WTSP to handle the news production? And then in Detroit, why not just rebuild everything again? I already know what people are going to say about that, and imo, it's no excuse. They should have just stuck with it. I sort of understand Atlanta given that WGCL already has WPCH to do news for but then again, WWBT has news on both WRLH and WUPV and even here in my market, KTAL does KMSS AND KSHV. I like the initiative but at the very least, have the respective CBS affiliates in that market (aside from Detroit) be involved
  13. https://www.kxxv.com/news/local-news/ann-harder-to-retire-during-her-25th-year-at-25-news Ann Harder is going to be retiring from KXXV (Waco).
  14. I saw it coming when Scripps bought the station. Scripps bought that show for several of their stations. But its appalling how it's taken this long to get her in Miami. Maybe now she'll get into the Twin Cities.
  15. Would me taking a picture of the newscast be proof? Also, it was listed on TV Guide. I have a picture from earlier this morning. That's Nate Fluharty on the right (of First News on KTBS) anchoring. Neil Shaw was in for Brian Fowler who normally does weather on mornings. However, by the time they went to 9am, Dominique Brogle (who normally does that hour anyway) was anchoring.
  16. Staying on the topic of news, for whatever reason, known only to KTBS, KPXJ has seemingly expanded to 8am. I already posted on Discord.
  17. I don't know whether this has been covered here or anywhere else but KWKT has a 6:00pm newscast now and a lifestyle show. Apparently, this has been on for quite some time.
  18. Ok, CBS doesn't even distribute Tamron Hall. She comes out of Disney. Bro, where are you getting this information? Or is this just in your mind?
  19. Even before that, they weren't exactly like WAGA when it was a CBS station.
  20. This makes me question KABB's decision even more given that both KABB and KEYE are run by the same group manager. Yeah, I know. They may not have confidence in the show but it still doesn't sit right.
  21. I do agree with all of you that WPLG could do without all of the extra Newscasts but how about some criticism towards other area stations. I mean, WSVN broadcasts a scripted court show at 2pm that could have been given up. And I'm sure WBFS or WSFL could have found the time for her as well without putting her in a graveyard slot like how KABB is choosing to do things. PLG isn't the only one who deserves to be criticized here.
  22. The portion in Guadalupe is part of San Antonio but you're right. Caldwell is part of Austin.
  23. Yep. And that's part of the DMA as well. If she comes back for a second season, I would hope KCWX, if they can afford her, would be able to steal the show away. I feel like she has the power to come back for a second round, as will Kelly Clarkson.
  24. Remember when I said WOAI picked up Tamron Hall? Yeah, she'll be on KABB.........at 2:00am. They gave Kelly Clarkson the 4:00pm timeslot where Steve was, though.
