  1. I figured that B&C would cover it, I also notice the Hill is covering it too. So yeah, I have a feeling that given the scope of it we might consider needing to split it into its own thread. The more I look into this, the more I see it as a very bad look on Tegna. We'll probably be talking about this for quite awhile.
  2. Ouch might be an understatment. Once TVNewsCheck, B&C and everyone else starts picking up on the story. Watch out.
  3. Because.. KWTV is Oklahoma's Own. They're just a lot more willing to spend the big bucks on radar technology than anyone else. They've been investing in weather technologies since Gary England became chief in 1972.
  4. Truth to be told, I saw that coming from a mile away.
  5. So was I, I think Scripps will just simply turn Ion O&Os into 24/7 Regional News Channels utilizing a mix of OTA and streaming. As for Ion itself, Scripps merges it into one of the Court TV networks (Court TV Mystery) and the end result is.. well, Ion. I'll save additional thoughts for the Speculatron boards.
  6. Here's a good collumn made by the SBJ about the future of the BSNs https://www.sportsbusinessjournal.com/Journal/Issues/2021/04/05/Portfolio/Media.aspx?error=Login+Failed Sinclair is going to have a ton of negotiating to do beginning with the Clippers, Pelicans and Predators all have rights coming up plus the out of market agreements with the NBA and the NHL expires after this season. A lot of negotiating ahead and I'm sure the leagues and the teams are definitely going to hit home to Sinclair about getting them back on the streammers + Dish.
  7. Say what you want about Allen's scripted programming but they've definitely been busy upgrading its stations and the fact that Allen is investing in WAAY heavily says a lot right there that Allen is willing to go and improve its stations quality and doing it the right way.
  8. There's just so much that I need to analyze on that article it'll be a long one so please bear with me on this one: That is likely where I see the Bally Sports Extra channels ultimately being used for eventually. Keep the traditional broadcast on the main and then those that want to watch the game from a sports betting perspective can watch it on the Extra channel. I'm a huge fan of this idea, this is a very good way of attracting new younger fans. Both the sports betting aspect of it and this Hockey University concept is a good way of doing that. I believe this is the
  9. This doesn't make sense Meredith knows the writing is on the wall. I'm not sure what Meredith is waiting on.
  10. This is probably the Brewers crew as I don't think RSN announcers are still allowed to travel with the teams on the road as of yet.
  11. When Scripps tried that. That didn't go over too well. This is why @ColtFromGulfcoast's idea makes logical sense in my opinion.
  12. Speaking of Raycom, that could very well be a good opportunity to breathe new life into Raycom Sports. Gray plans to have nearly 10 seperate facilities (studios, 9 of them to be exact) it'd be a perfect opportunity to tap into Raycom Sports and bring them new life into it.
  13. One other possibility that hasn't been mentioned yet but one of the things that Gray could utilize the facilities for is to do its own syndicated shows rather than outsourcing them. There's a lot of potential around that land that Gray is tapping into that I seriously doubt that the film industry will want to leave Atlanta or the state of Georgia anytime soon.
  14. I also found out that KTXA is carrying a few Stars and Mavs games in April and May. While KMYS is carrying some Spurs games too. As I said on Discord last night, I see OTA stations (not just Sinclair stations) being involved more so with the coverage of sporting events potentially making subfeed channels (e.g. Bally Sports Kansas City completely pointless). In fact I would not be shocked to see OTA and their upcoming DTC service ultimately replacing the traditional RSN platform which will likely force many of the contracts to have to be renegotiated.
  15. You're on the right track. The way I'm interpreting it from the articles I've read (and I've read those articles more than once) its sort of a mix between the games being broadcasted in markets in which the teams are represented (OTA) and on cable/apps for those outside of the market. In other words those within the Minneapolis-St. Paul DMA will see whatever games go on the Extra channel shown on WUCW, while those outside of WUCW's coverage area will have games exclusively carried on either DirecTV, certain cable providers and/or exclusively on the Bally Sports app.
