  1. This is basically the M.O. for Sinclair/Gray/etc to skirt duopoly rules. Strip the intellectual property from one station, put it on a .2 on the senior partner and/or an LP, and now you have a duopoly without actually having a duopoly in the eyes of the FCC. It's bad news, because it's already happening with Big 3 stations with separate news departments (KTUU/KTVA). I do wonder if a Biden DOJ will figure out a way to crack down on the license kabuki, because it doesn't appear the FCC can.
  2. Also, the KCTV logo is bad. I wasn't really a fan of the logo they've used the last 20 years or so, but in making something new, they had the opportunity to try for something unique or interesting, but instead did...that. Really unfortunate. It's pretty much along the lines of what Gray and Nexstar do when they change a station's logo. I'll give a group like Morgan Murphy credit on their redesigns. Some of the logos (WISC) were a miss, others were pretty good (KXLY)...but at least they tried something original. Not just slapping the network logo next to a generic sans-serif channel
  3. The graphics are good although I do wish they came in more colors than red and blue. Talk about extremely overused. Remember when stations had logos and graphics with purple, gold, teal, etc. Now it's all either bright red or bright blue. Lame. That's where Tegna gets some credit, actually. I've never had a problem with the graphics so much as the music. I think people associate the two though.
  4. Well...consider the fact that the purpose of the "newscast" is only to fill time between political ads...
  5. Watched some clips. This is everything News Nation was billed to be (but isn't, and never will be). Wish Shep the best.
  6. What do you disagree with?
  7. It's really sad how much of a joke this has turned out to be. They are tripping all over themselves to not appear "biased" that it hinders their ability to deliver facts--if that's what this was ever about in the first place. Instead of catering to the people who think FNC/CNN/MSNBC is overloaded with partisan crap, it seems they're catering to the people who think the network newscasts are equivalent. I overlooked the Compton-Trump connections at first, but in hindsight, I think those have should have been a bright red flashing warning sign. Even discounting the tepid coverage, th
  8. Turns out the inspiration for this thread also did WILX and WSJV. So he's done those two in addition to WTEN, WKBT, WTVO, WFRV.
  9. Here's another one. Any idea who the guy on the (newly posted) WGEM 1995 open and the WDKY 1995-2000 opens is? Sounds like the same guy.
  10. The logo/graphics are a downgrade from what they had before as far as I'm concerned. I'll never understand Nexstar's obsession with Aerial.
  11. Tell that to all the people who got axed when they took over WDBJ, KSPR, etc. Bloodbath.
  12. Won't happen. They may let them stay separate for about a year, and even claim that they intend to do so long-term, then they'll turn around and combine them to (ostensibly) create a "stronger" news operation. This has been their playbook every time. KYTV/KSPR, KSFY/KDLT, etc.
  13. I've got some oceanfront property in Arizona to sell anyone who thinks that Gray is going to keep the news operations separate. I don't even know why they try to lie about that anymore. It happens every time.
  14. Idk if this has already been posted...but in the mid-2000s, WRNN ripped off WMAR's early 2000s look right down to the slogan.
