    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    With the WNEP acquisition, this is Tegna’s entry into Pennsylvania.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I would think WPTV an hour or two up the road would produce newscasts for them. I think Scripps is a good fit for WPIX. I agree that there is bad optics on Nexstar’s part for selling WPIX, seeing that they have much of New York state covered.

    How unfortunate.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Would New Fox really want a station in Des Moines? It makes sense not to bid in that case. Side note: that FTVLive article basically plagiarized that Bloomberg piece.

    AT&T buying Time Warner?

    Surprised nobody is talking about this. WarnerMedia is working to phase out the Turner name on its cable networks. https://variety.com/2019/tv/news/turner-brand-time-warner-tnt-tbs-trutv-1203160652/ And there’s some speculation that CNN may leave Atlanta behind: https://www.nbcnews.com/business/business-news/ted-turner-name-likely-stripped-new-warnermedia-company-after-85b-n982696

    I hope Rob ends up at WGN. It would be perfect for him.
  7. This is a strategic move. I like it and it's smart optics from NBC.

    And there shouldn’t be any uneasy feelings amongst station staff this time, hopefully.

    March Madness 2019

    Looks like we’re pretty much going back to the old format for Sunday’s Selection Show. No more studio audience or alphabetical order reveals. Thank God. https://awfulannouncing.com/cbs/cbs-turner-go-back-to-basics-with-a-one-hour-ncaa-tournament-selection-show.html

    Fox in talks to sell to Disney

    The end of an era. But I suppose Disney needed something else after Touchstone/Miramax faded.

    So they pulled a KTTV basically.

    Out goes Ron Corning at WFAA. http://www.unclebarky.com/dfw_files/39720003e97502ef6069b1bc872f6d3e-4379.html

    Random WGN thread

    That looks so much better. Kind of a worthless upgrade, though, considering this is the final season of sports on WGN.

    Random WGN thread

    I like how they didn't explicitly mention it in the promo.

    AT&T buying Time Warner?

    Atreya is one of the worst hires CN has made. At least Stuart Snyder learned from the live-action fiasco that plagued the network. For the record, Adult Swim exists for a reason.
