  1. All 3 stations are really close at 10pm. It goes back and forth depending on the night. WJZY has benefited from Fox’s primetime lead in, which is what led to them being #1 in the November sweeps. Nothing has changed in the other newscasts. WSOC and WBTV are still fighting it out for #1, WCNC is still a distant 3rd and WJZY is dead last in evenings and fighting it out with WCCB for dead last in mornings.
  2. According to BET, Steve's show has only been dropped on NBC O&O stations. https://www.bet.com/celebrities/news/2018/09/20/steve-harvey-team-shuts-down-rumors-canceled.html Steve upset his base and lost some support in the black community after meeting with Trump. His radio show in Charlotte was a strong #1 for nearly 10 years, but has fallen behind in several demos. Both of his shows, Family Feud and Steve have been flat or down the last couple of years here as well.
  3. WSOC also hired a new VP/GM, Cedric Thomas, late last year. He was previously Director of Sales at CMG Pittsburgh. Joe Pomilla, WSOC's long-time VP/GM was promoted to VP/GM of CMG Boston. https://www.coxmediagroup.com/cmg-announces-new-broadcast-leadership-in-boston-charlotte-memphis-orlando-pittsburgh-jacksonville-and-miami/ I've heard that WSOC/WAXN's ratings haven't been as strong recently as they once were.
  4. True. Cox (WSOC/WAXN) does own a "National Weather Service quality radar" in Charlotte. It has been a promo point in the past. Everyone else has to rely on the NWS radar system exclusively.
  5. Why is Charlotte the biggest US city without Doppler radar? http://www.newsobserver.com/news/politics-government/article69059387.html
  6. I don't understand this one either.
