  1. KEYE/Austin prerecorded the 10p news Sunday, presumably to avoid an on-air dumpster fire. They were open and told viewers it was prerecorded because of technical difficulties. The news segment was recorded at a different time than the weather segment so the news anchor and met were never on camera together. No L3s, no prompter, no opens. This morning, still no L3s, prompter or opens. They have weather graphics and commercials are running. No traffic maps. Assuming they’re affected too. Last newscast captured by NewsOn was Saturday at 10p. FTVLive is reporting Si
  2. Adding to the cheesiness … that shot behind the female KOSA anchor is a static one. She’s not in the control room. And not in front of a monitor showing a live look inside the control room. I wonder how many viewers have picked up on that
  3. Which GM/ND/CSD looks at the honeycomb package and says, “That’s the package I want for us!” ??? It immediately looks so dated. Straight from the 1970s or 1980s.
  4. More Houston TV news … 5p anchor Art Rascon is retiring from KTRK at the end of the year. His replacement will be … his son, Jacob Rascon. Jacob recently left KPRC, where he had been co-anchoring weekend mornings.
  5. Did we know MJ was leaving? I don’t recall seeing that here. The number of people who have left Q13 … or whatever they want to call it … is pretty staggering. Now to a different Fox O&O: All of us on here have bagged on KDFW for their apparent unwillingness to replace their ancient set. Even tho they’re the most-watched station in D/FW and clearly aren’t hurting for cash. Well, this morning anchor Lauren Przybyl was back in the studio for the first time in forever bc of COVID precautions. And she apparently was blasted by viewers commented on how her hair looked due to their c
  6. That leaves a lot of shows with no home, including Rachael Ray and The Doctors. Drew Barrymore still has her overnight run on KIAH, so at least there’s that. (KUBE was also running her at 4p.) The ShopHQ announcement was made in late May. By then, most stations have their fall programming locked in. Maybe we will see some of the KUBE shows reappear as the season progresses, most likely overnight. KTBU is another option. Even though they run most of the Quest lineup intact, they have been airing Daily Blast Live and a repeat of sister station KHOU’s Great Day Houston in early afternoons. This w
  7. WOAI replaces main anchor Randy Beamer with Jonathan Martinez, weekend anchor at KPRC. I could say more, but I’ll keep my mouth shut. #Sinclair https://news4sanantonio.com/news/local/meet-jonathan-martinez-news-4-san-antonios-new-co-anchor
  8. KEYE hasn’t aired Tamron at all this season … daytime or overnights. They replaced it in the 4p slot with Drew. I thought it might wind up on Nexstar’s KNVA (CW) or KBVO (MyTV), but nope. Sad the ratings weren’t better here … she’s from Luling in Caldwell County, which is in the Austin DMA.
  9. KPRC/Houston is repeating the 10p news, followed by a second run of Dr. Phil, then 3 infomercials. That means Impossible Jokers is JIP 12 minutes into the show so they can hit Early Today on time. Less than ideal.
  10. They redid the backdrop, adding images of local attractions, but yeah … it already looks dated. They were relocated from a building on the highway in the middle of nowhere (where a meteorologist got shot in the parking lot) to an old church. They clearly are doing everything on the cheap. KIII in Corpus Christi has a recycled Tegna set too.

    In Memoriam

    It’s kind of odd that his former station, ABC 15, spent far more time on his death than his current station, ABC 33/40. (He had been gone from KNXV for about 4 years.) A well-produced, 6-minute package vs. a VO. Either way though it’s a very sad story.
  12. It doesn’t mention 11a. I guess that means KPRC wins in that slot since they’re the only other station with local news at that hour. Neither KTRK nor KHOU says whether they are citing households or a certain demo. Also notice how both promos say “English language.” That means the Spanish stations actually beat them, which has been happening for years now.
  13. With May sweeps over, KXAN/Austin has parted ways with evening anchor Sydney Benter. She’d been there about 4 years. Britt Moreno from KCNC/Denver has said she is heading to KXAN and is the presumed replacement. Sydney’s post is actually kind of heartbreaking. It sounds like she was completely caught off guard. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2021/05/sydney-benter-leaving-kxan-austin.html
  14. There was an f-bomb on WMAQ’s 10p newscast Friday night. Reporter Chris Coffey was doing his live intro on a mask mandate story when a man ran behind him and yelled “F-ck Joe Biden.” Coffey was obviously startled but apologized and continued. After his signoff, anchor Allison Rosati said she was glad Coffey was OK and that she hoped the man would apologize to him for what he did. Crazy enough, they didn’t even bother to bleep the word — or cut the report entirely — during the overnight repeat. Lazy. 003388E3-540C-408F-91BB-E6F4B6282735.MOV
