  1. It appears KXXV is bolding some of the type. Makes a difference.

    Out & About

    Big news out of Atlanta: Tegna's WXIA will start running 3 hours of primetime news weeknights on sister station WATL beginning Monday. New shows at 8p and 9p will join the existing 10p newscast. At 8p, they'll be the only option for news. At, 9p they'll be up against WPCH. And at 10p, they'll face off against powerhouse WAGA. https://www.ajc.com/blog/radiotvtalk/11alive-going-all-news-watl-from-starting-december/uJiK9aPqgUTZUWRzlHFrWM/
  3. They didn’t acquire the Lake Charles, La., stations. Interesting. Wonder what the plan is for them?!?
  4. Broadcasting & Cable says WSFL will start news in the spring. With a timeline that aggressive, they’re absolutely going to be relying on WPTV. Anchor the show from West Palm, throwing to a handful of reports from MMJs based in Miami. Mix in statewide content from the various Scripps Florida properties and you’ve got a (pre-recorded?) hour at 10 to get them started. Build from there with the eventual goal of being fully based in Miami and offering shows in the morning and possibly the late afternoon/early evening, as well. https://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/scripps-to-add-local-news-to-station-in-miami-market
  5. They need to get rid of the huge gap between the ticker and the L3s!
  6. Aaaaand he’s deleted it. The comments were ridiculous, including one person who wrote ‘Hope you two f——d’

    KXAS had almost 1.5 million viewers for the game. By comparison, at 9, around when the storm hit, KDFW had just over 200,000 viewers. https://unclebarky.com/dfw_files/fe4c87f456f6f63c884d5cacf479db32-4482.html

    After looking at the above video, it’s interesting that KTVT isn’t really getting any criticism. A long delay in getting on the air on Channel 11. Facebook and your little-watched sister station don’t count in a situation like this one.

    KXAS, the NBC O&O for DFW, has issued a rare public apology for delays in breaking into last night’s Cowboys game to report on multiple tornadoes in its coverage area. Will be interesting to see if this does any long-term damage, ratings-wise, to the station. My guess is no. Certainly not a good look for them, though, at least in the short term. https://www.nbcdfw.com/weather/stories/NBC-5-Dallas-Fort-WorthKXAS-Statement-Regarding-Sunday-Oct-20-2019-Weather-Coverage-563578861.html

    The "3" Thread

    A .1 for the first 15 minutes and scratched the second 15 minutes. Way to go, Tegna. What a joke. (Also, running an infomercial after the noon ‘news’? Really?)
  11. Is this the first Graham station using talent opens with this particular pkg? I don’t recall seeing anyone else with them.

    Hollie has been there a loooong time ... and yet they still managed to spell her last name wrong in the L3. Gotta love that attention to detail.
  13. National average for RTM is a .8. I don’t think that qualifies as ‘pretty popular.’ Stations sticking with it are mostly doing so bc they have an ownership stake and/or bc it’s cheap to acquire. https://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/syndication-ratings-rookies-retreat-in-week-two

    KPRC is now the third Houston TV station airing an hour of news at 4p, joining KHOU and KTRK. Started this week. They had been running 30 minutes of news, followed by Extra. Extra will continue to be seen at 12:30p and 3:30a. This is a return to an hour of news at 4p for KPRC. They cut it back to half an hour several years ago citing news overload. But I guess those ad dollars were too good to pass up ... https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2019/09/kprc-2-expands-4pm-news-to-one-hour.html

    FTV is claiming several NBC Boston anchors were let go. Any idea who or why?
