  1. https://tvnewscheck.com/article/more-news/230581/roseanne-tellez-joins-wfld-chicago-news/ WFLD hired Roseanne Tellez from WBBM. She'll be on Good Day Chicago with Rafer Weigel. Crossposted with the WBBM thread.
  2. https://tvnewscheck.com/article/more-news/230581/roseanne-tellez-joins-wfld-chicago-news/ Idk if this has been posted yet but for the ones who said Tellez was moving to WFLD, y'all called it. She'll be doing mornings with Rafer Weigel who comes over from weekends.
  3. Yeah......good idea. Then if they do break up the stations and sell them for the money, the next broadcast giant probably will be someone at least more tolerable. In all seriousness though, I think we better get comfortable seeing another broadcast group in the mix. But just saying, Apollo DID try to buy Nexstar so they may be ballsy enough to someday do just that. But that's a huge leap of faith to assume that.
  4. Not to get too far of of topic but there will be other opportunities to acquire stations for Apollo as well. I'm going in this wishing the Cox employees hoping the best and hoping that there may be a scenario in which the whole group became a JV between Cox and Apollo (that may be far out but could happen). With this said, the fact that Apollo is using Northwest for scale makes me wonder if they'll then try to get the smaller groups like Hubbard, who has been silent on the TV front as of late or somebody else like that. I didn't even know Brian Brady had been interested in selling
  5. That's me with Houston, San Antonio and New Orleans.
  6. For me its a tossup between the Commanders and the Express. I always do two teams for everything. Idk why. So far, I'm liking the coverage.
  7. I'm sure a station in Memphis can do better than that. Former Raycom stations are lazy enough on syndicated offerings as it is (other than Frangela, KSLA only has Millionaire and Right This Minute), but I'd expect more from a station like WMC.
  8. I'm not in the New Orleans area, I'm in Shreveport but I wouldn't have blamed them for doing it. I would imagine most of the other CBS affiliates in areas where the Saints have preseason presence probably suffered too. However, WWL has made no secret of it's displeasure at being forced to air the bowl. A look at it's Facebook page and replies to comments will tell you everything you need to know.
  9. Speaking for all of us Who Dats, We were certainly not dissapointed by what happened last night. Of course, a lot of us never watched.
  10. Y'all, they also said WLMT was in the top 4.
  11. With the different leadership at CBS, Moonves having been shown the door, it may be a move worth giving a second look at.
  12. And then the fact that WTXL is now co-owned with WFTS rather than WWSB.
  13. We'll be discussing that for as long as the next decade if that happens which it wouldn't surprise me if it did.
  14. I'm with you on Telemundo. That'd have me scratching my head.
  15. That could just be a relay for KBTX's CW subchannel. There is precedent to that because KNOE's CW subchannel is rebroadcast on KCWL, and Gray does this in several other markets where they operate.
  16. I think they'll just move the CW over to KNCT for some reason. I don't agree with the whole Telemundo thing that everyone has been saying.
  17. And then look who is the main one retweeting about Chris Bradley. Could this shit be any more fucked up than it is? Thank God he was at WBNS when this happened, or Sinclair probably would have fired him on the day of his funeral. I apologize if this offends anyone but someone has to point out the hypocrisy here. I can't be the only one who sees this.
  18. If she isn't snapped up by a larger market first. And these are the people who we're supposed to let own every station in America.
  19. His company? He has no company. His company is no more of a company than Glencairn/Cunningham was and is.
  20. He is. Why the heck do you think he's doing this in the first place?
  21. How do you know that WHDT will become a top 4 station as a Fox affiliate? It's never universal that the Top 4 will consist of Fox, CBS, NBC and ABC. Chicago, Miami, Fresno, San Antonio, El Paso, St. Louis and Hampton Roads (the latter two of which alternate, staying in those spots just long enough for certain combinations to be approved), show that very well.
  22. You can just dump that off on anyone that'll put some programming on it that would otherwise be on a digital subchannel.
  23. Did they buy the CW or MyNetwork affiliation from Sinclair behind the scenes? That's just about the only reason I could come up with for why Scripps would want WHDT unless they plan on moving WFLX's unit to that channel. I mean, this is out of left field, here.
  24. Harrisonburg. It makes sense if you think about it.
