  1. When did the WABC evening anchors quit taking 2-3 hour dinners? Last night? (pssst...don't tell those new kids over at Scripps, they might only get 1/2-1hr lunch)
  2. Honestly folks, This should have happened 30 years ago. Now it should be interesting to see what slant the new channel takes in the re-election year.
  3. Shortly after that, they took it behind the barn ...and shot it. Happy News Year!
  4. Like we used to say in Lone Grove, Ok... "Just take it behind the barn and shoot it...and hurry back inside to watch the end of Dallas on tv." Not really much in the way of "closure" for us in that deal. That makes me sad just to see it die like that.
  5. The Philams in my neighborhood are all sharing ID's on the VPN's so they can watch "TV Patrol" for free... Lumpia and TV Patrol just seem to go together around here.
  6. `Tis the time for Holiday and Christmas cheer here at KBEX-TV This year we took a survey of TVNT members and asked "what should KBEX broadcast on Christmas day?" Well this year it won't just be another Yule Log (tm)...or a piece of flaming poop. This year KBEX-TV Presents... Yule Boris- 2019 Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from all of us at KBEX-TV Surfridge/Socal And from the KBEX-Interns...
  7. Florida Anchor Arrested for Drunk Driving...The final decision 1 year later. In Today's TVNT Crime and Punishment segment, we take a look at the final decisions and verdict in last years arrest of a Florida Anchorwoman. There are some very interesting twist and turns in the case. Thanks to our friends at Youtube channel Real World Police. On December 5, 2018 Florida morning news anchor Farron Salley was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. This video presents the entirety of Salley's traffic stop, field sobriety testing, and her testy exchanges with law enforcement.
  8. Lol... "Number one...Because we say so." I love it! It's just like saying you have the worlds best coffee...prove that ya don't.
  9. Plans, Permits etc... It's NYC for God sake. Yup I would actually say 5-6 years given the process and delays that will be involved. Make NO mistake, the planning has already begun. Of course ABC could take a quicker route...
  10. I would expect all kinds of strange "musical chairs" at all the ABC production/ news studios in the NYC area. The reason is the upcoming move at Columbus square and all the tech craziness that will be part of it. ABC and WABC will need to improvise over the course of the move. IE: EWN being able to work out of Times Square if needed for an hour, week or month. There will need to be some redundancy practiced "just in case"... You plan for the worst, and hope for the best.
  11. Anatomy of a death spiral, of the once proud CNN... Just plain sad to see the network destroyed. https://www.nationalreview.com/magazine/2019/12/31/cnn-is-not-a-news-network/?amp
  12. I would just run a double box and monitor the vote. We already know how the vote will go, and you can always take the chambers "full" if hilarity ensues.
  13. I agree that's a whole lot of eggs in one basket, but the folks funding this operation must be aware of that possibility. Do you think CNN even considers them a remote threat? Heck No! I don't have a clue who is really behind the whole deal, but the funding seems to be there for now. There must be some timetable for the growth, and a aggressive business plan. This could easily migrate via OTA into a solid diginet once it get a bit more polished. Viewers sure don't seem to care about visual and audio quality much anymore as you of all people know (winky guy emoji). But does anyone (here) remember that first year of CNN? The first year of CNN they would take anything...and air everything, no matter how bad it was, or where it was produced. A bunch of real crappy TV from all over the USA flowed into Atlanta. Taped packages arrived by Greyhound bus ,mail, Federal Express or Airborne Express. A bunch of small time reporters also got some huge breaks when CNN aired those packages from those small markets. CNN also aired some real gems during that time, including portions of one reporters resume tape by mistake one late evening. Train up these kids and their network, and In a few years maybe Sinclair or Byron will buy them. I'm paying very close attention to them.
  14. The entire channel is "training". The goal right now should be perfecting the format, and newsgathering processes. It's also about the growth. Notice the new digs? Who is paying for that? My guess is that once this gets to a certain size with OTA footholds, then prospective buyers and investors might follow. They don't need to be great yet...they just need to get a little better and better each day. They might not have a lot of viewers yet...but the viewers they DO have, are paying attention very closely. If I was CNN, I would be watching my rear view mirror.
  15. And the first Action News theme was actually used in quite a few markets in the early 1970's.... The black round thing is called a "record" which was an acoustic analog playback media. They were not edible, nor could they be smoked or vaped.
  16. Action News and EWN will continue on for the next generation, Take a look at this WPVI Action News Demo tape that recently leaked out. ..
  17. Well since it's the south"... they probably just find a willing cousin.
  18. You shouldn't have to take the station off the air (or get knocked off the air) with a little proper planning. Don't Try This At Home or Without proper Adult Supervision. Pretty simple actually... Your video,audio and data links all (presumably) have active back-up paths and circuits, that are used for maintenance or emergencies.. They are extra channels or spare "pipelines". On the big day, all you do is switch to the back-up circuits while you shut down the "main feeds" and establish and test the new signals. Once you are happy with the new signals...you just switch back from the back-up line to the main lines. ...and since you did a secret "test of the test" a few hours or days before...you are certain all will be fine once it's all "official". Practice Safe Engineering for a Green Planet.
  19. You don't think the news networks should carry the hearings of the impeachment of the President of the United States? Only if those "networks" can be unbiased and fair.... Which they have shown they can't. I will be happy to discuss the politics of such "hearings" in private with anyone who wishes.
  20. ...and by day 4 CBS had bailed out of continuing coverage and back to generating revenue. CSPAN3 was still carrying the gavel to gavel...and the ratings for FNC doubled the NBC broadcast network. https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/tv-ratings-impeachment-hearings-day-4-down-1203412193/ 2.5 million viewers big whoop! Judge Judy gets 10 time those viewers daily. I hope the big networks continue to burn money during sweeps. Serves them right . They have abandon the public. Meanwhile I will go back to CSPAN3 where I can hear directly what middle "normal" America thinks about all of this.
  21. L Oh freaking L ! Sounds like @mrschrimpf has been watching the mid-day offering of Estrella TV. Lagrameta y Costell , El Show W/ Don Cheto, Mucho Talento, and a few other Estrella Shows use the same set...all day. I think even Tumba Burros is also trying to hijack the lone set. Funnier yet... Many of those shows also use those same two Chica's (Mucho Caliente)...you know...the ones with the giant.... Avocados... (Ha,Ha! ..You all thought I was gonna say "t*ts")
  22. Yup... They ALL fall for that trick in the first year... "Yule Log, My Butt!"
  23. Depends on how much they are willing to spend. I can build a news department with 1 person....more money gets you more toys and people.
  24. How big is your budget? 1 person? 50 people? How much money can I spend?
