  1. As an update to my above post, I think I may have finally identified the voiceover artist WMC replaced John Young with in 2018. Sounds like Dan Nachtrab to me, but compare for yourselves: https://www.dannachtrab.com/ http://www.southernmedia-nmsa.com/#1,1,WMC I created a separate thread for this back then, but didn't know if bumping it was a good idea.
  2. Interestingly, The Delta News seems to be providing newscasts for other stations these days. It produces newscasts for KLAX in Alexandria, LA, featuring local reports out of Alexandria but anchor and weather in Greenville (video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=72iYRQkD-Vs). It also seems to be providing at least weather, if not news as well, to a station in Eureka, CA (likely KIEM, also owned by Cox), based on recent uploads to its YouTube account (example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggPsZ127Y3E). Ironically, Alexandria is a larger DMA. I think the KLAX agreement began before the Cox purchase, but I'm not sure about the KIEM one. Makes me wonder what else Cox may have in store for these stations.
  3. WMC replaced John Young a few years ago, if I remember correctly. I think the new announcer still has yet to be identified.
  4. I've only had primetime on intermittently in the background lately, so I've only seen this on two or three shows, all lighter fare from NBC (Game of Games, Little Big Shots, and I think The Wall as well). I imagine it's due to a lack of new programming right now to show ads for during the typically condensed credits. Has anyone else seen this on other shows/networks?
  5. I thought the same thing... my opinion is that SCS's deputy chief of communications, former WMC reporter Jerica Phillips, may have played a role. Just a thought.
  6. Not sure where else this information belongs, but WMC and the Bounce network have partnered with Shelby County Schools to air 23 hours of education lessons per week beginning Thursday. Displaced Bounce programming will move from Channel 5.2 to 5.5.
  7. Camille Connor has joined WMC as a reporter. Over at WREG, longtime weekend meteorologist Austen Onek departed the station earlier this year.
  8. WMC is losing some talent. Erin Morgan, who was only briefly at the station as weekend morning anchor, returned to WMBB (her immediately prior station) as weekday morning anchor. Jessica Holley has left to be a full-time mom to her newborn. And Allie Herrera is leaving to be a fitness instructor. (It's possible I'm leaving people out too, but I think that's everyone) Meanwhile, Cassie Carlson has joined the station as weekend sports anchor, replacing Sudu Upadhyay, who left at the end of the year. He'll reappear soon in Atlanta as a producer/MMJ covering the Falcons on Fox 5, the official station of the team.
  9. Interesting how both WATN and WREG are in there.
  10. A few days ago WMC weekend sports anchor Sudu Upadhyay announced on social media he'll be leaving the station after year's end. He'll be headed to Atlanta.
  11. In Memphis, WREG won again, as usual. WHBQ has taken second place for a number of timeslots as well. https://wreg.com/2019/12/03/wreg-no-1-in-news-again-in-november-sweeps/
  12. Not sure if this deserves its own thread, but this graphics package has (for better or for worse) been immortalized on network TV thanks to NBC's Bluff City Law, which has so far used WMC's set, live van, mic flags, and, of course, graphics as part of the show. The only thing not included... actual station talent. To echo one of the tweets below, it's impressive how much effort was put in to make the scenes feel like they really came from WMC. Although I can't say I care at all for the show's use of Calibri over the supplied blank lower third. (Can't believe I'd ever think the Helvetica looks better!) I'm sure better screengrabs can be taken from the show if streamed live on nbc.com, I just haven't had the time to watch it. (Frankly, this interests me more than the show itself, haha) https://twitter.com/JaredJayBBoyd/status/1179027816043692033 https://twitter.com/kendall_downing/status/1178859750307565570 https://twitter.com/MemphoNewsLady/status/1184973449904754689
  13. Update on WJKT... all newscasts have been removed from their schedule. It would seem WREG isn't going to provide newscasts after all. (Either that, or they'll take a while to get some set up...)
