    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Oh... He did a copy and paste? Show me me where he plagiarized anything. All he did was rewrite the story....AND he posted a link. You can't be more transparent than that. Your local TV station does it every day of the week when they lift or re-aggregate stories from the net. If you need to know the rules, I suggest you consult your AP Style Guide.

    KFMB Slow Death Thread

    Where those millions of dollars went after the KFMB sale... Would KFMB have reported this story a year ago? Nice to see those millions go to a good cause....rotflmao (gack) http://www.cbs8.com/story/40121477/san-diego-woman-charged-in-college-admissions-scandal-to-appear-in-court It’s entangled nine college coaches, two Hollywood actresses and more than 30 others, including individuals with ties to San Diego.One of them is Elisabeth Kimmel who owned KFMB Stations for decades until it was sold to TEGNA, Inc. in 2018.
  7. Oh Joy!!!! It's almost "San Diego Re-scan day!!!! Yippy!!! Re-scan those ota tuners on march 14 because it's gonna be better than Christmas in the Congo. Thanks to our friends at SBE-36... www.sbe36.org Updated information in bold below. – ed. The FCC 600 MHz spectrum auction has San Diego and Baja Mexico stations moving to new channels after T-Mobile bought the spectrum last year. LPTV stations on channels 39 through 51 were told by T-Mobile they would be taking over the spectrum after November 30, 2018. Protected station KNSD announced on their information crawl that they will switch to channel 17 at noon on March 14, 2019. Leon Messenie at KPBS says that due to a delay in construction at KVCR San Bernardino (physical channel 26), KPBS and KSWB will now delay their switches until March 26. Let’s look to see what’s going on, channel by channel: 15 – XHTJB, public TV “Canal Once” (channel 11) moved from channel 46 in September. The FCC website has this allocation placed in Ensenada, but they’re actually in Tijuana. 16 – KDTF, Entravision’s LATV outlet, moved from channel 51 on Mt. San Miguel on November 16th using their same broadband panel antenna. They were granted a Construction Permit on February 21. 17 – KNSD, NBC Universal, is up and testing with color bars on PSIP ID 17-17 from Mt. San Miguel since December 3rd on their new Rohde & Schwarz transmitter into a UHF Dielectric Pylon antenna installed by Wireless Infrastructure Services (“WIS”). They switch to 17 permanently March 14. 19 – KPBS, San Diego State University’s PBS outlet, had their antenna installed by WIS in 2018 and is due to move from channel 30 on March 26, 2019, taking over for KSWB, who is moving to 26. 20 – KZSD, a UHF outlet of Scripps, is up on Mt. San Miguel and broadcasting a repeat of their channel 10 lineup. 21 – XHDTV Tecate, an Entravision-leased signal from Cerro Bola, is working to move from channel 47. KHAX-LD Vista is operating on an STA on channel 21. 24 – KBNT-CD on Mt. Soledad is ready to make the switch from channel 25 on March 14, 2019, according to Chief Engineer Manuel Rojo. They have a new Harris transmitter and new antenna installed by Wireless Infrastructure Services at the KGTV transmitter site. 25 – KDTF-LD, another Entravision station, and KSDY-LD have applied for this channel and are considered mutually exclusive. They worked out a settlement agreement wherein, if approved by the FCC, KHAX-LD Vista will get exclusive use of channel 25, KSDY Mt. San Miguel and KTCD Mt. Woodson will share channel 31, and KDTF will take channel 16. KBNT-CD will switch from 25 to 24 on March 14. 26 – KSWB, Tribune’s Fox affiliate, had WIS install their Dielectric slot pylon antenna last week. They’ll move from channel 19 on March 26, delayed due to construction delays at KVCR San Bernardino, channel 26. KVSD-LD from Mt. Woodson received a Silent STA on October 15, 2018 (this fixes a previously erroneous report that they did not file for the STA). 27 – XHBJ Tijuana moved from 44 before November 30, 2018. 30 – KPBS will move to 19. Tijuana will take over this channel after that date. 31 – KSDY-LD changed from 50 to 31 on February 8, and was granted their construction permit for channel 31 on February 21. KTCD-LP will share channel 31 from Mt. Woodson at 140 W ERP omni-directional. 39 – KZSD-LP STA on Mt. San Miguel became KZSD-LD and moved to channel 20 in time for their November 30, 2019 T-Mobile takeover date. 40 – KNSD-TV moves to channel 17 on March 14, 2019. 47 – XHDTV is expected to move to channel 21 soon. 50 – KSDY-LD moved to channel 31 on February 8, 2019. 51 – KDTF Mt. San Miguel moved to channel 16 using an STA before the November 30, 2018 T-Mobile deadline.
  8. Jamie Bonilla Cuts Off BCA From SBE-36 website... sbe36.org XHPRS-FM 105.7 and XEPE-AM 1700 have discontinued their operations agreements with San Diego-based Broadcast Company of the Americas, aka BCA Radio. The stations, known as “105.7 Max FM” and “ESPN 1700” were shut down in mid-December after a reported payment dispute with the license holder, Media Sports de Mexico, owned by Jaime Bonilla Valdez. Their respective websites continued streaming programming until the end of February 2019. BCA continues to operate XEPRS 1090-AM, known as the “Mighty 1090 AM.”

    KFMB Slow Death Thread

    What site(s) are down? Cuz that's a pretty big deal . You know Ric Bosscher retired also after 44 years...he was the dude for all that stuff. from sbe36 website... We’ve learned that Rick Bosscher, longtime RF Supervisor at KFMB-AM-FM-TV, turned in his keys for good in mid-December 2018, less than a year after Tegna bought the stations. He was hired by Chief Engineer Charlie Abel in 1977 after installing and servicing the FM and TV transmitters in 1976 as a technician for RCA. ......

    Out & About

    She only lasted 11 months... And why is Lisa Remillard still sitting on the beach ? https://www.kusi.com/kusi-tv-on-lisa-remillards-new-position-with-soccercity/ Not a good year for USC Trojans at KUSI. Dani went silent 2 weeks ago, and judging by KUSI standards it must have been really , really bad to keep it sooooo quiet. It might be an "A-P-R" situation: "Attitude"... "Porn"... or "Rehab".

    February 2019 Sweeps Roundup

    Most likely it's just a staffing /labor issue. Do you want to staff an extra 1/2 hour in the morning (for a 4a) or rather use those resources in your 11a or noon shows? 8 hour shifts with 1/2 hour mandated lunch and NO overtime allowed..and the lunch is now a big deal since some recent court rulings. So you can bring in your tech team early for some crap 4am show...or save that crew to staff your 11am or noon show. Cost versus Benefit...and there are only so many hours in a day that you have budget for.

    Ann Curry Comeback? Page Six

    Is Ann Curry staging a comeback? The NY post Page Six seems to think so... https://pagesix.com/2019/03/08/ann-curry-looking-to-make-network-news-comeback/ Curry is putting her hand up at the Tiffany Network as newly minted CBS News President Susan Zirinsky considers a shake-up of anchors at the network’s morning and evening news shows, sources said.
  14. Do you notice anything when the cell system looses power during disasters and emergencies? How about covering large protest and gatherings where the cell network in that area is slammed and you can't get a decent encode or decode? How many years till the entire country has 4G...forget 5G...that's still not not ready for primetime and the entire country won't see %g for a long time. The 2ghz systems the real pros use are all backed-up by generators that we control, maintain and fuel. We also maintain a pretty decent 2-way radio system where we don't have to depend on the cellular network...and we can talk on the system while we drive without fear of a ticket. Cellpacs are great tools, however if your station is ditching it's 2ghz RPU ENG systems, then your station is gonna get a dose of news reality down the road. Yeah....you can drive, and transmit a live broadcast signal that does pretty well in most cases... Now excuse me while I go watch Live PD on A&E.
  15. Thanks for posting that. The WSR-88D in San Diego is down for a few weeks because of some scheduled "maintenance"... Why isn't KNSD promoting the hell out of their own radar while the NWS system is tanked? It should be a talking point in every wx-cast while the problem persist. Do promo departments even exist anymore? Or did that get outsourced to New Deli also?
