  1. Ahem... Spectrum News 13 says hello. I know this is somewhat old but... I see you peaking-a-boo, Raycom Sports!
  2. Probably a strong second when the other competition is weak stations KXTV and KTXL.
  3. Actually, not really. I was able to check out Milwaukee PBS' weather channel (WMVT 36.3) thanks to Locast and I didn't see any AccuWeather products on there at all. Just maps, radars, forecasts, traffic cameras and NOAA Weather Radio but that's about it.
  4. 7.10: CBS (WSAW) 33.10: FOX (WZAW) 34.1: The CW (WYOW)
  5. WOOD should expand to 4:00 p.m. once Ellen ends. They're #1 big time anyways in West Michigan in most, if not all, timeslots. Just look at their competition and you'll see why.
  6. Nope! She's at CBS: https://deadline.com/2021/04/cbs-news-reorganizes-with-co-presidents-1234735288/
  7. Okay, so this is interesting and Steve is actually *kinda* right. WTVJ's set debuted in 2012 so its almost 10 years old at this point and while the monitors are great and all, it is starting to get dated already. Let's see what WTVJ comes up with but I don't expect any changes to its music or its graphics.
  8. Newsy existed before some of these services, including ABC, CBSN, NBC NN, NN from FOX, NewsNet and others. On a different note... At least we know one affiliate planning to carry Newsy OTA: Scripps' KRIS-DT 6.6 Corpus Christi, as mentioned by RabbitEars.
  9. I was one of them. On cable? Maybe, but NOT over-the-air.
  10. Not only that, its also simulcast via WDCW's transmitter on 25.1, so you have WDVM on 25.1 via WDVM and on 25.1 via WDCW.
  11. One problem with that: Brian Hutton Jr. is leaving WNCN for WTAE-TV/Pittsburgh very soon. https://www.timesonline.com/story/entertainment/2021/03/15/wtae-tv-names-pennsylvania-native-brian-hutton-jr-new-meteorologist/4712128001/
  12. I don't see that happening. It works in a small state like West Virginia but not in a big state like New York.
  13. Your reading this wrong. He celebrates 39 years at WDBJ and is beginning his 40th year there, having joined in 1982.
  14. Same with Beaumont. Notice the trend... The network affiliate that's sister to the main one gets moved to the main one on a subchannel of Sinclair, not on a sidecar of Sinclair but actual Sinclair itself so that it can get away with FCC regulations and everything.
  15. From what I was told, he came back at 7am. In terms of this news... Bye Felicia.
  16. Actually, your wrong. It was WFMZ-TV Allentown who launched the first 24/7 weather channel, in partnership with AccuWeather, back in 2001.
  17. I'm getting SJL/Lily Broadcasting vibes with this.
  18. One problem... I live in a market where Nexstar doesn't exist so MIA, FTL and even PBI (Palm Beach) will have nothing. In fact, the closest airport that could see something like this is TPA (Tampa Bay).
  19. Kelly did traffic but must have kicked her off for entertainment and features when Kristin arrived but is now back to her original job in the morning. And no, this will do nothing to challenge their rivals. Just like their other newscasts, WTVJ is a solid third. Still beats WFOR in the morning, but still... a solid third. If your in Miami, your either watching Today in Florida or the Local 10 Morning News in the morning. There's no either unless you hate both.
  20. This is my first post in quite a while on this forum. I'll explain why on Discord later. Anyways, yep. However, I wouldn't go so far as to ABC going back to WGHP because in all honesty, I think WGHP actually likes having FOX in their arsenal. It just means more newscasts for them than when they would've had with ABC. Besides, I even think WGHP is stronger than WFMY because TEGNA-itis. I know its weird I'm saying that, but I really do think WGHP has taken advantage of WFMY's misfortunes, only because of being a part of TEGNA. However, both still can't contain the gorilla that is WXII and now having WCWG with them in their roster. With that being said, I still think WGHP is a great fit with FOX and I think FOX really likes WGHP as one of its affiliates. Nexstar should keep things as status quo for the station. That's true but don't forget SInclair twice (WLFL/WRDC and WXLV/WMYV). Other than that, your right.
