  1. Umm... WRAL didn't add a 9:00 a.m. hour on WRAZ until Monday, June 3rd, 2019. I know because I reported it on my blog at that time.
  2. Actually, I'll go against you and say NO. Despite not having its own news department, having the resources of WRAL already makes WRAZ one of FOX's strongest stations. They don't need the Murdochs or anyone else because Capitol Broadcasting runs both WRAL and WRAZ really really well. In fact, I think Capitol Broadcasting is one of America's best broadcasting companies.
  3. I mean WRAZ's news is produced by WRAL so they could've simulcast WRAL's coverage.
  4. Do they have an affiliation with NewsNet? If not, then... what?
  5. She shouldn't have left Hampton Roads' #1 news station to work for essentially THE last placer in Northeast Ohio.
  6. The more things change, the more they stayed the same.
  7. It's only temporary though so don't celebrate just yet as it'll go back to 4-10AM once its all through.
  8. Can you please explain for me what would this do, if anything?
  9. Yep. As a matter of fact, as a public service to TVNT readers... Title 47 Code of Federal Regulations, Section 73.1201 of the FCC Rules say on station identification... There's more than this, but that's just the basics of the rule.
  10. I mean, its only temporary. If they still call themselves Channel 9, its because they still do. They're just using the WSOC brand only for the 11:00 p.m. news, nothing more. Because even the station would hate to use their call sign all throughout the day. Channel 9 is just much easier to say and they know that.
  11. Fixed. KSAW has a separate open now with their launched of separate 5:30 and 10:00 p.m. newscasts.
  12. It's the first time I've seen it today so its new to me. Thanks for the background information. I wonder if TF1/LCI have done something similar.
  13. I can't read French but I can get the gist of what this story is talking about. France 4 and France O are shutting down on August 9th. France 4 focused on Entertainment and Children while France O focused on programs from France's overseas departments around the world, but shown in France. Its overseas counterpart, Outre-Mer 1ere, will continue to broadcast as it does so outside of France. That'll just leave France 2, France 3, France 5 and Franceinfo left from the France Televisions group. https://www.ozap.com/actu/france-4-et-france-o-fermeront-le-9-aout-p
  14. Three suggestions... Move My West Michigan to 10:00 a.m. so that WZZM can add 9:00 a.m. morning news. Keep MWM at 9:00 a.m. and add 4:00 p.m. news to replace Judge Judy when it goes away. Add 7:30 p.m. news once DBL gets canceled OR add 7:00 p.m. news and shift ET to 7:30 p.m.
  15. They're #1, but your right. Just provide three or so anchor teams and they'll be good but nope.
  16. I don't think it was even on in Miami so we hardly knew ye. I'm just only surprised it lasted longer than it should.
  17. And both are actually temporary, just like how KTLA's noon and 7pm are temporary.
  18. I guess it won't be just the O&Os anymore. The first non-O&O right here.
  19. I think ABC may do something similar but I'm really not too sure since all ABC said was that they're creating Roku and Fire TV apps for its ABC stations.
  20. In San Diego, KGTV (5:00-7:00 + 8:00-9:00 a.m.), KNSD (7:00-8:00 a.m.) and KUSI (6:00-11:00 a.m.) have weekend morning news. I'm surprised too. But I think KSWB will get it before KFMB ever does.
  21. Good for her. She deserves it after 25 years where it looks like its a promotion where she'll be across the country and not just Philadelphia. I just hope WPVI picks up her reports.
  22. Even I can't believe that. That shocks me.
  23. In other words, KLJB, KMSS and KPEJ will effectively be 100% Nexstar stations as Mission is just a sidecar of Nexstar.
