  1. Just how much will you miss John? Most the morning crew has moved to New Jersey...to save commute time. Well we have to ask just what YOU are doing to be a good viewer? It's just a bit lame that you waited all this time to praise John AFTER he got removed from the show. Chas, Vicki and Ellin... You need to show John a little MORE love! Send WCBS all your bitcoins...and John might return to weekdays. Enjoy this picture suitable for framing.
  2. Was there a video montage? I have higher hopes for your second post.
  3. Maybe it's a good thing... (From KRON.com)
  4. Good stuff Tom, Thanks for joining, and sharing that with all of us.
  5. Failed Marketing Idea??? Or Al Primo's guest bath?
  6. Yes all those awards have entry fees. To be fair they use the entry fees on the gold plated trophies, and administrative functions of the awards programs. There is also a nice dinner (cost extra) and some kind of convention. Then there is the judging of the entries... Yes, you would think a panel of wise old scholarly types with pointy beards would be summoned to the oak paneled rooms of the Temple 'O News...meticulously checking every detail. Not quite. Typically one markets awards program exchanges with another. L.A may judge Dallas...Spokane may judge the entries from Little Rock. The judging takes place in a station conference room on a weeknight that's totally inconvenient for anyone, but since there is free pizza you manage to scrounge up a few interns and the EP nobody likes. Everyone sits through the first hour of tape after tape after tape of breaking news, features, wx segments, dogs surfing, dogs singing, dogs doing stand-ups on surfboards...and sports!!! It's a lot of stuff to wade through, and it's a Tuesday night and it's only 10pm...and there is still the smaller markets that get included with the larger market entries. Hopefully by now the station suits have completely cleared out of the building...then somebody suggest a little break...to clear our heads..or a little "attitude adjustment" if you will. Hell, one year the entire AP entries of one pretty big Ohio market were judge by a tape editor and station floor director/teleprompter op because nobody else was interested or showed up to judge entries. ...and one time there was a swell Saturday afternoon gathering in the redwoods of Marin... They say that girl that was born 9 months later... was named Emmy for a reason.... Happy 4th everyone.
  7. Honestly folks ... Enough with the sock puppets. It just degrades the thread.
  8. They probably want to start out small and see what the reaction is from the local businesses that will be courted for ads, and to sponsor segments. You can always expand the (lifestyle) show if it takes off....and knock the news back to 5 minutes at the top of the show. It's all about selling the lifestyle portion of the show.
  9. A little info on the Carlos and Lisa show on KDOC-TV-56... https://tvnewscheck.com/article/top-news/236194/anchors-launch-online-broadcast-news-platform/
  10. A good part of the "Sam Demo" also spends weekends in Miami, Bahamas, Hamptons etc... Frolicking in the surf...and hitting the clubs at night. (don't make me dig out more speedo pics) Certainly NOT unusual behavior of a New Yorker by any means. I'm sure plenty of Sam's regular viewers say to themselves... " I wonder if we will see Sam this weekend at..." ...TWIST, Back Door Miami, Azucar NightClub, Jamboree Lounge, Palace Bar, SheLife Events, Club Boi, The Hub at the LGBT Visitor Center, Beach Betty's Bar, J's Bar .... ...and any one of those clubs would love to be able to claim Sam as a "regular" because that brings in more guest...and that "Sam Demo" has plenty of disposable income to party with. WABC and Sam would be total fools NOT to exploit that in some fashion as there are plenty of New Yorkers in SoFla most the year.
  11. They will need to convert it to digital because many of those court hours are on tape. You also need to re-time and add new in's and outs, along with all the new production elements. Honestly... Unless you are a super hard-core court watcher there is really not much viewer interest in viewing entire trials over again. We already know how they end, and many of the better trials would have to be updated with appeal decisions and all the other crap that can happen after the trial closes. And all that work will take people...and people cost money.
  12. I wonder why she didn't get a big send-off like Carlos got... And WTF is going on with Ruberti she looks like she is just ghost posting on twitter and FB just to preserve her brand. I think it looks kinda sad. Big purges like this can only mean one or two things... Could we be coming to "that point"....where the big guy gets dementia...and JR. starts making the daily decisions including....... To be continued...
  13. Well you don't have to be mean about it. She may be a bit older...but she can still plow a good sized field, carry 10 sacks of corn flour, and still pull a wagon to the mill. And the viewers still like her.
  14. "Scanner Bud" in San Diego reports that Sandra Maas is gone from KUSI-51. Bud also reports that "Assignment Desk Les( Lester)" is gone from KFMB-TV-8 after 20 years on the night side assignment desk.
  15. I get that you and others feel emotional about the story for whatever personal reasons. But at some point "breaking" news is no longer breaking. Sure stations run the term "breaking news" into the ground because of lazyness and a unknown fear the are being beaten . Those of us that experienced 9-11 firsthand remember that it escalated very quickly...so quickly that nobody bothered to call it "breaking news"...I bet you can't even find any NYC station or network that ran a breaking news graphics ( go look so you can prove me wrong) anytime during the initial coverage. When the shit hits the fan you don't need a breaking news graphic to tell you it's real. The copter crash was no longer breaking news after about an hour...the emergency was over and the site was contained. The visuals sucked, and the rest of the country was on to bigger things... so it was time to bail on the national coverage. In "wire speak" ... "There was NO new Top." The is an old saying on the Assignment Desk... "It's not news unless we say so". The story was pretty much over. Someone at the desk needs to take the emotion out of it...and make a rational decision about coverage and the COST associated with that coverage. It's about profit remember?
