  1. Sound like Lisa pushed back against Bell executives about news budgets and editorial control https://www.canadaland.com/bell-executive-who-fired-lisa-laflamme-interfered-with-ctv-news-coverage-says-colleague/
  2. This was clearly Bell being cheap and not wanting to keep paying her - absolutely stupid move. Shame on Bell
  3. WXIA’s Chief investigator Brendan Keefe has left the station to be the Chief investigator for WGCL. Non compete will keep him off Wgcl until April
  4. Rachel Aragon has left WBFF to join WGCL
  5. seems like a waste of time and money to put a temp studio across town for just a week. this is obvious Gray trying to promote their new facility at assembly
  6. Wtvc was unable to air morning news due to widespread Covid outbreak
  7. You were right. New anchor at Fox29 WXIA's lifestyle show was 1.5 hours for awhile
  8. I do NOT like the name - it sounds like one of the Nexstar portal websites from a decade ago.
  9. Brian Williams is a free agent if CNN wants him as a replacement for Cuomo
  10. Seems widespread https://therecord.media/sinclair-tv-stations-disrupted-across-the-us-in-apparent-ransomware-attack/amp/?__twitter_impression=true
  11. Graphics and set in action. They even brought former anchor Allan Hoffman out to introduce the set
  12. It's official WZDX and WATN have switched. Interestingly they retain their Nexstar web domains. localmemphis.com and rocketcitynow.com
  13. CityNews in Toronto has refreshed graphics. They have brought back an actual open with an announcer and music. Also back is City's "Everywhere!" slogan. Guess we'll see this rolled out on the other CityTV stations as time passes. L3's remain the same new: old:
  14. Spurs open is the exact same as the Heat open. Again giving more credence to my suspicion that this is going to be the generic open for all sports coverage regardless of team and sport
  15. There's also nothing special about the graphics tied to either the team or the sport. There is nothing in the open showing the Heat logo and you see the words "baseball", "hockey", and "basketball" displayed; along with things like a baseball diamond, a basketball court, and a what appears to be hockey rink faceoff circles.......this leads me to suspect that this is the generic open and theme to be used for all teams and sports. Which, if correct, is a major downgrade from the NBA, MLB, and NHL themes FSN used and also much blander than the custom team opens that FSN used as well
  16. Name a more iconic duo than Hubbard and cheap lazy graphics
  17. Robin Reed celebrates 40 years at WDBJ https://www.wdbj7.com/2021/03/13/robin-reed-honored-with-day-in-roanoke-as-he-starts-40th-year-at-wdbj7/
  18. New graphics as WFXR Roanoke - they are using the nexstar "ABC" package. Graphics also appear to have updated the Station logo slightly as It's now a rectangle instead of a parallelogram (morning show appears to have been using the old ticker and bug )
  19. What Golf channel has working for it in it's favor is that it's audience is wealthy (golf fans aren't exactly living in poverty) so that probably helps with adviertisers. Plus like others have said they have consistent programming, whereas NBCSN seemed to struggle to find programming to fill time outside of NHL and NASCAR season. I see this as a missed opportunity where NBC should have gone more aggressively after college sports and MLS instead of letting ESPN and Fox (and to a lesser extent CBSSN with college) gobble them up
  20. New graphics at WINK - looks like in house job
  21. Clearly demotions for the news people so they can have another opinion host to throw red meat to the fox news base
  22. KTVK and KPHO have switched KTVK/KPHO simulcast KTVK KPHO
  23. appears none of us noticed this last month but KRGV debuted new graphics and a new set https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FIFlxSo0sU8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tkaSQbdrJI4
