    Another one retires! FOX 13 Tampa Bay!



    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.

    No answer on that one, but I Hope they’re doing better than ever. If they are, maybe there’s potential for WOIO in Cleveland to rename itself as WONF, Ohio News First, and potential for WXIX in Cincinnati to rename Themselves as WCNF, Cincinnati News First.


    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?

    That's a clean look. Very nice for Maine and a small market, I bet they're happy.


    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.

    Speaking of WSVN..can't forget their "NightTeam" branding. Their opens go with 7 News at 10/11pm, but I don't have nearly enough fingers and toes to count how many times the word NightTeam is used on their late newscasts. Also, the reports tag out as "Live in Hallandale Beach, Joe Blow, 7 News NightTeam,"


    True but WHDH and WJAR also use that.

    Another specialty name that WBRZ has used (and, IINM, they still use this today): 2une In (for the morning edition).

    Speaking of WBRZ, when it had the Eyewitness News name, their 10pm news was known as... the Nightdesk. I'm not even kidding.

    Here's a breakdown on who's airing it. 

    Nexstar gets Tampa and Panama City.  Cox gets Jacksonville and Orlando.  WFOR is airing it in Tampa and WBBZ is airing it in Ft. Myers.

    All the other Sinclair markets in Florida are airing it on their stations.


    You mean WFTS Tampa? Also WBBH Fort Myers is what you probably meant.

    And WFOR is in Miami.

    And KGO was doomed between the introduction of PPMs exposing their actual listenership and all of it's post-Disney ownership.


    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.

    Spotted Anna Laurel filling in tonight on KFMB. Not sure if she's freelance or not (she doesn't have a bio on the site) or how long she been there as I don't watch KFMB terribly often.


    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)

    Why did CBS owned WBFS & WSBK dropped MyNetworkTV?

    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.

    Allison Latos leaving WSOC


    Last newscast is tomorrow. Leaving TV altogether and staying in Charlotte. She really has been through a lot in 11 years with the cancer scare and the loss of one of her daughters. 


    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.

    The 1pm hour is an odd time for affiliates to fill with live news cut-ins. The morning crew normally will have left and the evening crew not yet in. Seems like stations would likely be prerecording something from their morning/noon team...


    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.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but are three pm newscast really a thing outside the ATL market on the east coast?


    WPLG Miami
    WBBH and WINK Fort Myers


    WFTS Tampa


    That's just Florida. Also, WAVE Louisville, WTVQ Lexington, WXIX Cincinnati, WOIO Cleveland, and a few others.

  13. 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.

    Out of the Denver stations  KDVR & KWGN have the most changes year over year followed by KUSA & KCNC.  This is one of the bigger changes to lineups that I can remember in recent memory for the Denver tv stations.  As per usual KTVD, KWGN & KCDO are the dumping grounds for most of the syndicated programing in Denver market.  I think that KCNC adding back news @9AM is a big deal as well as NBC NEWS Daily over on KUSA it gives both stations some opportunities to add news programing to the lineup.  Ring Nation is not cleared here in Denver.   I kinda wish KUSA would drop Colorado & Company it's pay to play program and shift the TODAY 4th hour into it's proper time slot and add more newscasts, but wishful thinking on my part.   And having Dateline on during the middle of the day seems odd to me, I know most NBC Stations are doing it but wow, strange.


    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.

    KJRH is going to try to do an hour long 6pm newscast for the second time they tried it a couple of years ago for a few months then scratched it due to low ratings.  The List will be moving to 4PM along with a new show at 4:30PM called Afternoon Focus.. Kelly Clarkson will stay at 3PM and 25 words or less will remain at 2 and 2:30PM.


    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.

    Some odd last-minute changes at KPRC/Houston, made by the new GM who just arrived from KSAT. With less than a week’s notice, Houston Life gets demoted to its old spot, 1p, starting Monday. It was just announced on air today. The show had been on at 3p. But the changes start earlier, at 11a. The Midday newscast gets shortened by 30 minutes. A day-old episode of ET airs at 11:30a, instead of 12:30p. The noon news expands to an hour. So still 90 minutes of news, just in a weird configuration. I’m not really sure why they insist on running the ET repeat. Just do 2 straight hours of news. Putting it in between two newscasts is … bizarre. Anyway, Houston Life as said above airs at 1p, where NBC News Live was supposed to run. Now, NBC News Live will air at 2p (Is there even a live feed at that hour?) and Dr. Phil is at 3p. NBC News Live will kill the afternoon momentum, IMHO. Anyway, this is all dramatically different from the schedule they had been promoting just days ago. 


    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.

    There’s a small market station in Minnesota (KMNT I believe) that is taking the noon ET feed so it will air at 11am CT there.


    You mean KMNF-LD Mankato?

    WKMG - no changes either. graham media must runs on Saturday nights when needed. Inside Edition Weekend remains on Sunday nights at 11:35pm.


    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.
