  1. To clarify... WISH-TV's Weekend Daybreak actually goes from 5:30-10:00 a.m. Also, I'm not too sure about that limited scope just yet. I'll wait another week before true clarification, only because some sites don't put the weekday news on the schedule past this week so I'll just wait.
  2. FOX did for three years before giving up in 2009. Its been a syndication service longer than an original program-type network. I say get rid of MNT already and have those stations finally become Independent again.
  3. Oh haha. Sorry. Didnt have the right info on my brain at that time. But yeah... 24 years compared to just, a new thing for KSFY/KDLT.
  4. Sioux Falls finally has primetime news at 9 p.m. For the record, Rapid City has had a 9 p.m. newscast for almost 20 years (not counting KCLO and their simulcast of KELOLand News).
  5. This is what I was looking for. Or... The Tube Music Network. I wish THAT came back.
  6. Thank god KDFW had no Emmy virus (as FTVLive likes to put out).
  7. I think this was missed. The purchase of TEGNA to acquire KTBU has been finalized and closed on March 24th. Three days later, it switched from Mega TV to Quest which is what its currently airing. According to Wikipedia and RabbitEars as well as Mike McGuff, the Vietnamese subs are still on but I doubt it will last there, especially now that its under TEGNA ownership. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2020/03/tegna-takes-over-ktbu-55.html
  8. WTVF was John Young's longtime flagship client and was the voice of the station from the mid-90s until just recently replaced.
  9. Yes because y'all are forgetting that Raycom (now Gray) owned KASA from 1999-2007.
  10. I'd bet its only temporary for COVID-19 as it'll go back to just an hour afterwards.
  11. I just got word from KSHB themselves... its temporary. They'll go back to starting at 4 p.m. once the outbreak is over.
  12. That's the part I'm trying to figure out because so many stations have been adding newscasts left and right lately and the majority being temporary that I won't know if its permanent until the pandemic is over.
  13. winner winner, chicken dinner!
  14. Thanks for letting me know, T.L. but I'll be waiting for which ones hit the airvwaves before I report anything on it. Its critical to get it right.
  15. Notice the mistake in the promo.
  16. Unless it goes to September, it will more like be temporary for coverage of Coronavirus, just like many other stations nationwide adding newscasts temporary because of COVID-19.
  17. But that's also only because most NBC affiliates rather carry *The More You Know* E/I block in full, in which most (not all) affiliates air it from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. on weeks the Premier League have a game on NBC.
  18. I know. I know. But I don't think the anchors would like to translate it into Spanish with Spanish anchors from WFDC and WZDC.
  19. When I saw the listings, it was on those four plus WATL, WUPA and GPB Radio.
  20. It is together, especially in a crisis like this. WRC, WTTG, WJLA and 24/7 News, WUSA, WTOP Radio and The Washington Post, all together providing news on COVID-19. Its wonderful.
  21. Unless, if you look at Charlotte for example, it carries local news (I know, its CW is owned by Bahakel). So YouTube TV is carrying WCCB Charlotte and if that's the case, then it should also carry KPLR St. Louis, KTLA Los Angeles, KWGN Denver, WNLO Buffalo and WTVW Evansville because they all carry a significant amount of local news (especially KTLA).
  22. This crisis is going to change the CBC and will probably force them to build local control rooms across their stations once again because obviously, its not working. Just look at P.E.I.
  23. Well... time to lock this thread.
