  1. 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. ..
  2. Well since it's the south"... they probably just find a willing cousin.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. ...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.
  6. 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")
  7. Yup... They ALL fall for that trick in the first year... "Yule Log, My Butt!"
  8. 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.
  9. How big is your budget? 1 person? 50 people? How much money can I spend?
  10. Even CSPAN knows there is zero interest... The hearings have been buried on CSPAN-3 That's below public access on the scale of news importance.
  11. And one of the top considerations... "Do I gotta pee in the cup?"
  12. No, You want to work out all the little bugs that will occur live on the air anyway. Best to have it perfected before sweeps begin....because there WILL be problems.
  13. Here at KBEX-TV our 5pm newscast starts at 12:00...because we forgot how to re-set the VCR master clock after the last state mandated power outage.
  14. I wouldn't read too much into that... It's really a small world media wise in NYC. Producers bounce all over each outlet on a rotating basis. And any one of those producers or MK could find a freelance camera crew in about 15 seconds ready to shoot the interview. After you shoot it....ya "shop it". Easy Peazy.
  15. It would make a nice mental hospital or a locked drug rehab facility. Those old tapes would be useful during arts and crafts time. Too bad they didn't rent it out during Halloween.
  16. I will up that $100, and say that Nexstar and Hollywood are about to hit 'head -on" in the middle of Sunset Boulevard... "Oh The Humanity!"
  17. In the same week the rumor of the radio side being sold, we have this tragedy... Former KFMB GM Paul Palmer has died. https://www.sandiegouniontribune.com/news/public-safety/story/2019-10-30/man-76-who-died-in-del-mar-wrong-way-crash-identified
  18. For the first time ever we are able to screen one of the most scary documentary's ever...maybe even TOO SCARY for TVNT and it's younger visitors. It's the story of a TV logo that terrified at least 10 or more children and other assorted bedwetters in the golden days of television. https://horrorfreaknews.com/s-hell-bizarre-doc-explains-tv-logo-traumatized-generation It even scares me. Happy Halloween my little TVNT goblins.
  19. Who would be acceptable to be seen "hanging out" with? Milo probably takes 500 selfies a day, with all types of people. Would you approve if it was Rachael Maddow? Most tv types who spend all day in the field are gonna have photos and selfies from all kinds of newsworthy folks. I'm gonna side with Ellen on this one. https://www.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/celebrities/2019/10/08/ellen-degeneres-george-bush-times-shes-addressed-critics/3906283002/ ...and just "who" determines credibility of a news organization? Some group of pointy bearded types? Or does the viewer decide?
  20. But when you release one party of the agreement...ALL parties are released. That could backfire on some "victims" and others who accepted money in the original settlement...Including NBC.
  21. Nope! This show is bleeding out fast... Remember that uncle Walter used to play to 29 million viewers each evening. That was in 1976, and the population of the USA was only 200 million people. Nora barely gets 5 million viewers per show. https://nypost.com/2019/10/20/cbs-anchor-norah-odonnells-ratings-in-freefall/
  22. She is no longer considered damaged goods with that blackface thing...that was like 2 years ago. The Governor of Virginia has at least 2 pics in blackface...and the PM of Canada was also exposed with pics.. Both men are still in office. Kelly had NO pics. It was a bunch of 'cancel culture' fake outrage, that most sane people now see right through. I think Kelly is gonna bounce back...Big time. There are a whole bunch of suburban tv news watching mommy's just looking for a new moderate/conservative idol to follow. Her return is being carefully plotted right now, and will be sprung in time for the elex fun. What could be a better way to score points with conservatives then to say... "NBC Screwed Me Too".
  23. Here at the KBEX-TV Museum of News History ..we have an active display of vintage "Lawn Darts". Wayyyyyyy more fun! But one day the adults ruined it... I miss lawn darts.
  24. And back in those days... The Sears catalog was considered "porn" in developed households. Fap Fap!
