  1. Aw man! She's held through and through. But 25 at WTVT, and a lot longer in the business. God damn she's gonna be very missed.
  2. And the first to re-add the 7-9am portion on WWL-TV. They'd do so in a heartbeat.
  3. a.k.a. Nexstar is a bunch of cheapos! This is pretty evident.
  4. Don't get carried too away. They'll only do this on their flagship market so that this sucker can succeed. Also, WXIX is #1 in Cincinnati. Why change that?
  5. Medium market you meant. Portland (Maine) is like only DMA #78 from last year's rankings so don't call it small by any means.
  6. True but WHDH and WJAR also use that.
  7. Newsight 7 over at WWNY-TV Watertown, N.Y. during the 80s and 90s.
  8. Speaking of WBRZ, when it had the Eyewitness News name, their 10pm news was known as... the Nightdesk. I'm not even kidding.
  9. You mean WFTS Tampa? Also WBBH Fort Myers is what you probably meant. And WFOR is in Miami.
  10. Yep, that's true. Look at the last ratings book... KQED, KCBS and KSFO were all higher in the ratings than KGO. If your even higher than syndicated KSFO with your local lineup in some dayparts on KGO, then you know its fucked up and a change was needed. And honestly, if I lived in San Fran, I'd be listening to either KQED or KCBS for my news and information anyways. I may be part of the demise of KGO by listening to someone else, but hey, I listen to what I want to listen to so... yeah, there. Hell, even KNBR/KTCT/KNBR-FM and even KGMZ would've been worth my time compared to KGO.
  11. Thank god for https://weatherscan.tk to keep the spirit alive.
  12. At least she escaped the hellhole that is KUSI. They even called her a secret agent in a lawsuit. Like... what?! (Story from Feb. 2022) https://timesofsandiego.com/business/2022/02/23/kusi-labels-ex-anchor-a-secret-agent-in-maas-suit-admits-viewing-private-email/
  13. The service is irrevelant and CBS wanted to program those two hours it couldn't within those two stations in those Top 20 markets. They'll be fine without MNT. WSBK and WBFS deserve to be Independents. MNT is really worthless. I won't miss it one bit.
  14. I felt like she has been there longer, but I've followed her career since WTOV because her and Natalie Pasquarella worked together at 'TOV and good 'ol Channel 9 for a long time. It sucks she won't be around but family matters more first.
  15. This is true. I'm defintely not a fan of her's.
  16. Its usually an afternoon or midday crew who would do it since having a morning team doing it would be so much longer of a day for them. For my NBC station WTVJ, the midday team at noon and 4pm do the live cut-ins.
  17. WPLG Miami WBBH and WINK Fort Myers WPEC WPB WFTS Tampa That's just Florida. Also, WAVE Louisville, WTVQ Lexington, WXIX Cincinnati, WOIO Cleveland, and a few others.
  18. Both of my NBC station's cut-ins (WTVJ) are live at 1:22 and 1:52pm. Also I wanna say that this alone is why I prefer NBC ND over GMA3 but if that wasn't included, I'd still think I would prefer NBC ND over GMA3 because it just looks like a better more straight to the point newshour than GMA3 is.
  19. Great Day Colorado has been on KWGN for almost a year now while KDVR has had 4pm news for a while now too. Those are nothing new.
  20. Yeah they did. 4PM news is what eventually replaced them.
  21. That's KTSH Channel 19, according to RabbitEars. It was a temporary simulcast of KSLA beforehand.
  22. Yeah that was crazy. They did so for like a month back in 2016, then changed it back to air The List at 6:30pm. I don't get why they expanded it only to then go back to a half-hour just a month later.
  23. NBC News Daily will have four live feeds... 12 Noon, 1:00, 2:00 and 3:00pm ET, which is in conjunction with the NBC News NOW schedule. You mean KMNF-LD Mankato? I'm not aware that Graham Media does must runs because I don't think they do. What WKMG does do though is run two half-hour shows that are produced by them, After The Whistle (sports) and Getting Results (investigations/consumer reports), that air on Saturdays after their 11:00pm news.
