  1. Looks like the Eyewitness News name is staying, and it looks pretty good in the CBS font.
  2. Seinfeld reruns already jumped ship to KCOP, which I assume will pick up more KDOC shows in the fall. You know things are bad for your channel when you've turned over 4 hours of your programming in the afternoon to simulcast Decades!
  3. Didn't want to give up the cushy 100,000+ extra viewers Blue Blood delivers!
  4. In case you didn't see it on the Discord server, here's the return of the legendary NewsTouch 25 from Brownwood TV Cable:
  5. IMO, the death clock for NewsNet has only accelerated with the Coastal news deal gone. It really serves no purpose anymore now that Newsy is around as an OTA alternative!
  6. I assume KTWO has done the same? That's gonna be a huge blow to them, as the Costal/Vision Alaska deal was probably what was keeping the network on air with Newsy availiable as a wider reaching and more professional alternative......
  7. Didn't they try this format for Face The Truth? It only lasted one year.....
  8. As I said before, the fact that the newscast has not switched over to the new standard CBS font while the CBS Weekend News has was a sign that Norah's days were numbered.....
  9. I don't believe we've seen this WEYI open before: On a side note, I can really imagine this cut of The NBC Collection being used for non-NBC stations if they removed the chimes from it!
  10. Another sign he's about to hang it up in original episodes? If thats the case, they'll pull a Judge Judy and keep the slots going with reruns!
  11. Some WLIO from 1990: Channel 63 from Alamogordo, NM:
  12. That's why I'm sure that even with Jeff Zucker gone, his influence at CNN will continue to make itself known because it draws viewers. Just look at Bill Shine forcing NewsNation to dip its toes into the Fox News pool.....
  13. They also dropped the 17, reverting back to just going by their call letters, something they did from the late 1980s till their switch to NBC in 2005. And the logo then was much more creative, with Illinois inside of the D!
  14. I would not be surprised that they'll still remain MSNBC Jr, as its more practical and brings in more numbers....
  15. If that happens, then I'm sure that NewsNet's death clock will only accelerate. The deals and Alaska and Wyoming are very likely the only thing keeping the lights on at the network with Newsy now available as further reaching and more professional alternative. Hell, Newsy is all ready on subchannels on their stations, they never even considered adding NewsNet full time on a subchannel!
  16. A station carried by few to no cable systems? Hardly a huge blow. As long as they've got their news producing deals for Coastal, NewsNet will somehow stay afloat, much to the delight of Amercian TV news fans in the Philippines.
  17. The fact that they have not changed over to the new standard CBS font (They're still using the slightly extended version from when Jeff Glor took over back in 2017) yet the CBS Weekend News already has, may also be a sign of Norahs days being numbered.....
  18. For the sanity of other members, please don't flood this forum with your OCD speculation on stations getting new graphics themes etc like you do in the comments on YT! Now here's a pair of classic Milwaukee newscasts, one of WITI from 1990: And another of WTMJ as NewsChannel 4 from 1991:
  19. This must be your first post on here, so let me be the first to say Welcome Aboard! In this case, slowly but surely the last holdouts of the Raycom blocks package are getting Gray-ed. KAIT got a new package yesterday, so how many Raycom keepers are left?
  20. There was a fifth, WTWC, that passed it over to its Fox subchannel in favor of Tamaron Hall just this September.
  21. As I expected, the CNN that Trump helped build is quietly falling apart....
  22. By October, the blue chroma key wall seen in the promo had been salvaged from the remains and transplanted over to the temporary conference room set while repairs were made on the burnt section of the building and a new set was being built:
  23. Here's a gold mine, opens from most of Benedek Broadcasting's stations from 1997, including some never before ones! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VkX-g829SLg
  24. The same type of situation happened in other New World markets, with the daytime shows moving to their new station 3 months before the full switch occurred. For example in Atlanta, Price is Right had moved to WVEU 69 in September of '94, which CBS was planning on buying before they struck an 11th hour deal with WGNX to affiliate with them.
  25. Here's a news pieces from Independent Network News and WNEW's PM Magazine from 1981 focused on early home satellite owner John Flynn, and it was even uploaded by John himself!
