    WCBS - CBS2 News

    No, it's live from 7-8am, 1-2pm and 7-8pm, as well as simulcasts of WCBS and WLNY's broadcasts. It will also be alive for special events and breaking news coverage. No word on weekend coverage plans, or if there are any. In CBSN's (original) beginning months there were no weekend broadcasts other than repeats of CBS Network broadcasts.

    CNN Evacuated for Bomb Threat

    CNNi does it's own thing from 5-8pm, then simulcast 360, Cuomo and the first hour of Lemon, then a replay of Amanpour at 11, then they're back live from 12am onward. However, they always have an anchor on hand to do News Now updates

    CNN Evacuated for Bomb Threat

    The seriousness of a bomb threat aside, as a television news fanatic it has been fascinating to watch the logistics of this play out. Just like the pipe bomb packages in October, they quickly got on the air via Skype on (Brian Stelter's) iPhone. However, this time was different because the control room running when this threat came in was based in New York, so they too had to evacuate. Back in October, the control room on air was based in Atlanta so no evacuation was necessary, meaning they could seamlessly have a correspondent in a Washington flash set take over, rather than the taped programming that was forced to briefly take over this evening.

    CNN Evacuated for Bomb Threat

    https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/06/us/cnn-new-york-bomb-threat-evacuation/index.html CNN's New York City studios were evacuated around 10:15pm eastern this evening, during the live broadcast of CNN Tonight with Don Lemon. Programming went to a taped edition of Anderson Cooper 360 around 10:40, and then around 11:10 CNN International took over, with John Vause in Atlanta, and Don Lemon live via Skype on the street in New York. Don is reporting the threat came in via a phone call from the southeastern U.S., and that law enforcement are currently sweeping the building. Just minutes before the phone call the President of the United States tweeted "FAKE NEWS -- THE ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE!"

    The CBS 3 Eyewitness News Thread

    [MEDIA=twitter]1054387307875328005[/MEDIA] CBS3 stealing NBC10's thunder, with the announcement that Jessica Kartalijia will join from WJZ as their new evening co-anchor. She fills the void left by Jessica Dean who joined CNN in Washington. As a long time viewer of Jessica, I understand she and her family live in either Baltimore or Harford County. I wonder if she'll end up commuting to Philly (about an hour and 45 minutes) initially before moving.

    HLN Brand Repositioning

    I think they're best bet at this point is turning into a CNN2 (whether in name or by action). That would mean supplementary and complementary shows to CNN. Maybe an extra hour of Anderson, replays of news shows, some CNN International simulcasts, new programs anchored by existing CNN names. ESPN does it with success. FBN is more or less FOX News 2 (they're very heavily politically focused). Either that or shut down the network because soft news didn't work, and Forensic Files isn't working that well either. That's my two cents

    Out and About

    Politics aside, I've had communications with Ketterer every once in a wild and the guy's kinda batsh*t. And also a fringe conspiracy conservative (despite once running for Congress as a Dem), so I wouldn't put it past him to come forward like this with political motivations in mind.

    WBFF New Graphics, possible new Sinclair Graphics?

    The bug is still backed with the American flag graphic

    Andy Lack on the way out at NBC?

    Is this a joke? Today is doing extraordinary well. It's best in years with Savannah and Hoda at the helm

    WNYW - FOX5 News

    Do we think maybe they were experimenting? FOX's conservative audience certainly hasn't taken a liking to Shep as of late, and maybe he's tired of the nonstop political on cable. Perhaps they were taking the technical difficulties as an opportunity to test Shepard on FOX5. Probably not but just a thought

    WBOC to acquire WRDE Coast TV

    This is a great move. Draper Media is not some major station group like Tegna, Raycom or Sinclair. They only have a presence in the Salisbury market, and WBOC is one of the most dominant television stations in America. The people of Delmarva think of WBOC and no one else when they think of local news. For them to continue their growth with a CBS and FOX affiliate, then a Telemundo affiliate, and now an NBC affiliate in addition to 5 radio stations demonstrates their dominance. If it were a station group that has no connection to the market and didn't know anything about the community's interests this would be terrible, but it's a local company looking to serve local people. Win-win.
  13. Wow. It's about time. They've brought traffic out of that ugly closet and onto the set
  14. If you want to see the whole noon debut again, it's up on WJZ's Facebook page
  15. Jess accidentally teased the 5 Day Forecast (from the previous graphics pack) but they have finally adopted a 7 day forecast. Welcome to the 2000's, WJZ
