  1. I recall Cox had a standard package for their stations back in the mid 90s, KIRO and WHIO were pretty identical when Cox bought KIRO.
  2. Looks like WHIO is in the process of switching to new graphics, they’re current package has been used since the spring of 2013 and WBBM used it back in 2008 when they switched to HD.
  3. That set dates back to June of 1999 when they moved into their new building, the set has been refreshed multiple times in the past 20 years. Definitely time for a whole new set.
  4. The severe weather tone has been changed after 20 years, not really noisy and really short.
  5. If Apollo tries anything to hurt WHIO reputation it would be a huge public outcry, even if they make cuts it wouldn’t hurt WHIO ratings. WHIO market share is like 75 percent in the Dayton Market.
  6. Hearst did a great job with WDTN in the mid 90s. I believed it debuted back in the summer of 94 then refreshed the fall of 2002. Then the whole anchor area was changed in 2005 but kept the weather area till around 2012 when they switched to HD.
  7. I could see WHIO as part of the deal too even tho it’s a CBS affiliate, id believe cox would want to sell it to someone who will keep its roots and tradition. Cox originated from Dayton and WHIO has dominated Dayton since it’s been on air.
  8. I could see CBS grabbing WHIO since it’s their strongest and the #1 CBS affiliate in the county. Even tho Dayton is a small market that station is a cash cow.
