    TEGNA Broadcasting and Digital General Discussion

    Heck, WFAA and KENS still use the 2012 Belo lifestyle graphics package for their 9am shows. WFAA did incorporate some elements from the current TEGNA graphics in a small refresh of the Belo package when they debuted the current TEGNA look.

    TEGNA Broadcasting and Digital General Discussion

    Move a popular syndicated talk show that's been a staple of your station for years to a low-rated station in favor of a pay-for-play morning show. Surely this won't backfire!

    New WXIA Set and Logo

    Eh, not awful, but I agree with @MidwestTV that it would look better with a serif. Otherwise, if they were aiming for a non-serif, I would’ve just imported WHAS’ 11.

    Random WGN thread

    I guess it depends on the context it’s used. NBC's The Carmichael Show and ABC's Black-ish both have used the "a" variant.

    That’s Dean RICHARDS.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    And here comes TEGNA.
  7. There’s a report out that ESPN/ABC is considering going after either one of Fox’s NFC or CBS’ AFC Sunday afternoon packages. I bet they would want the former since the NFC is in larger markets. https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2019/01/08/report-abc-considering-going-after-nfl-sunday-package/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

    The Suicide of CNN...Good Bye Old Friend.

    UPDATE: KUSI didn’t retract, they’re standing by their story. https://twitter.com/KUSINews/status/1084147388434927616

    ABC going after NFL Sunday package?

    MNF has a doubleheader on Week 1. ABC affiliates would protest their late news being bumped to the wee hours of the morning. Also, four words: Dancing. With. The. Stars.

    KUSI has now backtracked on their claim. https://www.mediaite.com/tv/tv-station-that-accused-cnn-of-spiking-wall-segment-for-political-reasons-is-now-backtracking/amp/?__twitter_impression=true

    2018 NFL Season

    CBS has announced their plans for the Super Bowl. 8K cameras are coming Live, in-game augmented reality CBSSN’s That Other Pregame Show will have a 30-minute special before Road To The Super Bowl https://www.cbspressexpress.com/cbs-sports/releases/view?id=51744 https://www.cbspressexpress.com/cbs-sports/releases/view?id=51745

    WJTV (and WHLT) new look coming?

    But hardly the first one.

    Here’s CNN’s response:

    The Suicide of CNN...Good Bye Old Friend.

    Seems like a good, cautious move on CNN’s part. If this particular report was being shared previously by sites like Drudge, it raised some red flags.

    KIAH apparently finally launched their new morning show back in October, Morning Dose 2.0. KTRK alum Sharron Melton and KDFW alum Maria Sotolongo are among the personalities. https://cw39.com/category/morning-dose/

    WMAZ new studio

    Next door to a Waffle House. Doesn't get anymore Georgia than that.

    KSAT, too. Made a mistake. No, they don't. Disregard.

    They wouldn’t. They won’t. Too much they would throw away if they sold WISH.

    The Definitive Fox Sports Thread

    Since we have threads for ESPN and NBC, might as well make one for Fox Sports. Sunday's D.C. United-New England Revolution match on FS1 will have an all female broadcast team, something that's never been done in MLS: http://www.foxsports.com/presspass/latest-news/2018/08/17/first-ever-female-mls-broadcast-team-makes-history-weekend

    2018 NFL Season

    I like the new minimalist design for the new MNF scoreboard. I could see ESPN probably joining the club and putting an MNF bug on the top right corner as well. The Round 1 NFL Draft simulcast with ABC is clearly a response to the Fox/NFLN draft night arrangement, although ABC did simulcast the later rounds on a Saturday afternoon last year. Related note: on Monday night's College Football Playoff National Championship, the Coaches Film Room portion of the Megacast will turn into the MNF Film Room with Tessitore, Witten, and McFarland.

    My bet would be Collin Myers for 3 & 4pm and Loresca at 11.

    WGN Sports Loses White Sox, Bulls, Blackhawks

    I phrased that poorly. I meant a slight chance.

    WGN Sports Loses White Sox, Bulls, Blackhawks

    One of the main reasons WGN got rid of The CW was primetime or late-night sports telecasts delaying the network’s primetime lineup and the 9pm news to after 10pm or midnight, respectively, and having to farm out some games to WCIU and WPWR. Now that live sports on WGN won’t be a thing after the 2019 baseball season, them taking back The CW from WPWR is a possibility. I don’t think Nexstar would want to be saddled with live sports contracts anyway.

    Oak Brook Productions, which produces Chicago’s Best, Weekend Workbench, etc., for WGN and CLTV.
