  1. My guess is that it's probably due to the midterm election tomorrow.
  2. Well KRIV could shift one to sister station KTXH (most likely TNF) but WTXF will really be the one that's screwed by this. We shall see...
  3. Oh I completely agree with you. IMHO, he was a better reporter than he is an anchor. He's not a terrible anchor by any means, but he was much better as a reporter.
  4. John Shumway and David Highfield are still there. How much longer that lasts remains to be seen, but as @Tylersaid, all the other greats have retired.
  5. Yep. Figured that was gonna happen. I mean good for him for standing up for his former co-anchor and friend, but obviously, KTLA management has become very thin skinned, and it's a shame really.
  6. So I posted in the Discord that they've gone back to their longtime brand TV38 again, which I don't know how long ago that started, but still, seeing this doesn't surprise me.
  7. I like it! I do agree with @24994Jabout the bug. It's entirely too big. But other than that, this package looks great!
  8. Honestly, I hope it looks good because the set they just left looked very good. And I don't have a lot of faith in this new owner, but I hope he proves me wrong.
  9. The changes in the fall lineup on the Pittsburgh stations can be found here. WPXI is replacing Judge Judy with some show called Ring Nation hosted by Wanda Sykes at 3 and another run of Jeopardy at 3:30 as a lead-in to their 4pm news. Some of the other changes have already been addressed here, but the full list can be found in the link.
  10. It would not shock me if more news gets added at WPXI. I'm not saying they will, but if they did, it would not be a surprise. It is surprising to see Judge Judy move to WPGH however. I didn't expect that. And Kelly Clarkson's show is obviously getting an audience, or else it wouldn't still be on the air. It shouldn't hurt WTAE's ratings. Hopefully with the show being in a better timeslot in Pittsburgh, it will get better ratings.
  11. It's so simple that it's ridiculous. You have the talent to get out of the ratings basement. It's just little things they can change to make the product better. And I really think they're pushing Sara Shookman out. I thought she did the 11pm too, but maybe Laura Caso does it now?
  12. I don't have a problem with them moving Jay and Betsy up an hour to 4pm. They're a really good team, and they'd be foolish to break them up. Still think the names of the newscasts are stupid. 3News at 4 & 5 are completely axceptable. But again, this is WKYC we're talking about lol.
  13. Wow. I can understand the two hours of New Day to fill the time because adding another hour of morning news would be overkill, IMO. But infomercials and two hours of Judge Judy? That's a bit much. I mean I know there's not many options in terms of syndicated programming, and I get that, but infomercials? Really?
  14. Because this is WKYC we're talking about lol. Did you really expect anything else? Haha
  15. That's really one of the only ways they are lol. They do well in the ratings, but other than that, there isn't all that much that's special about them.
  16. Yeah I agree. I'm impressed. I really like this! I thought they'd go the CBS Mornings route in terms of the L3s, but happy to be proven wrong on that.
  17. Wow. WTAE is airing it at 1:06am, presumably replacing The Real. That's kind of a surprise.

    The "3" Thread

    It actually looks really good. They just need to get rid of that stupid logo, even though they won't lol.
  19. I don't think I've seen a list of what local stations will air Thursday night games this season. Like I know the Steelers have a Thursday night game this season, but I have no clue what local station or stations it will air on.
  20. The deals were officially announced this morning. https://bigten.org/news/2022/8/18/general-big-ten-conference-announces-groundbreaking-media-rights-agreements-providing-fans-unprecedented-access-and-student-athletes-greater-exposure-than-any-other-collegiate-sports-conference-in-history.aspx
  21. So I'm not sure if this goes in this thread or not (feel free to move if not), but WFMJ's assistant news director just tweeted this...
  22. New graphics for Steelers broadcasts this year. Looks to be an in-house job. The team must be producing the games this year as there was a Steelers Media Productions tag at the beginning of the game.
  23. Well Kelly Clarkson will have a new home in Pittsburgh. She'll be on WTAE at 3pm when the new season starts September 12th, replacing Ellen. Seen a promo for it during their 5pm news tonight.
