  1. 10TV’s cable penetration is insane... they reach as far west as Dayton, as far south as Scioto County, as far north as the Cleveland area (on cable) and as far east as Parkersburg/Charleston, WV.
  2. I could definitely see NBC 4 getting back into #1. People know Colleen Marshall and Mark Taylor, and many in our market grew up with the former. NBC’s primetime lineup is a lot better now than it was 10 years ago as well when they lost that spot, so there is a quality lead-in now. Before NBC got their paws on WCMH they were their strongest affiliate — and later one of their strongest O&Os. After NBC sold the station off, the news product took a huge hit with a lot of their quality reporters (i.e. Nancy Burton, Holly Hollingsworth, John Ivanic, Kyle Anderson, etc.) losing their jobs, their longtime ND (Stan Sanders) being fired, and the economic downturn. As cheap as Nexstar is, they’re slowly getting back what was there before Media General cut everything.
  3. I’m sick. However, it was bound to happen. The paper was sold in 2014. Daily circulation for the Dispatch had significantly dropped before that. Real estate is the Wolfes’ main cash cow, not broadcasting. Very sad day for Columbus media. However, my focus is more on the guys who have been working at 777 Twin Rivers Drive for 30+ years and are now in danger of losing their jobs, or being forced into retirement...
  4. Not to mention Erica Baker’s body still hasn’t been found.
  5. Olivia Fecteau is headed to WEWS from WCMH, effective March 1. She was their morning reporter and came over from their ex-sister station WJAR in 2016.
  6. So this would leave KDFW and WJW as the only stations still on the 2006 sets.
  7. Olivia Fecteau is leaving WCMH and going to WEWS effective March 1.
  8. Ah. I got them mixed up for a bit; but I’d say Columbus needs more sports radio — we have two major league franchises, a VERY popular college football team and there’s been talk of adding the NBA in the past.
  9. I liked The Zone. Sad to see it go. Didn’t Anthony Rothman have a show on there after leaving Buckeye Football Fever and WSYX?
  10. They give me some real CBS vibes,
  11. CBS makes a bit of money with WWJ, seeing as they can run it as a simple pass-through. If they hadn’t been turning some sort of a profit, CBS would have unloaded it long ago and wiped their hands of that mess...
  12. Wow, you’re not the sharpest tool in the tool shed, are you? NBC is not shuttering NBC Boston’s news department. Period. Lemme explain to you why NBC is going to continue running newscasts despite “negative reviews.” MONEY! As long as NBC Boston can sell ad rates at a decent amount and turn a profit, then ratings won't matter as much as you think. This is also why stations have slowly begun to phase out syndicated programming in daytime — they can keep all the revenue in-house rather than sharing it with syndicators. You sound like Mardek’s cousin from Philadelphia who seems to think that shuttering a news department fixes its problems.
  13. Fun fact: Degan was a video operator for Maury and Sally until the latter’s 2002 cancellation and production for the shows was taken over from Studios USA by Universal.
  14. I thought Fox still represented the ex-O&Os during carriage disputes, as part of their affiliation contracts negotiated during the sale from FTS to Local TV?
