  1. Honestly, with the way her luck's going here, it wouldn't completely shock me lol. But as @Kenneth Kisselsaid, she's likely to go to WTAE when Ellen wraps things up.
  2. I agree with that. It probably wouldn't hurt to re-air the news at 12:30pm after Tomlin's press conference. But it isn't necessary beyond that.
  3. Yeah there's no need for that honestly. They already do that on CBSN Pittsburgh, and it should just stay there. No need for it to air on WPCW at the same time. I actually thought it was a live newscast.
  4. It was hers to lose. And that was the smart thing to do. But I'm wondering who's going to do traffic now. Will it be Matt Pellman or someone else?

    The "3" Thread

    Yeah I noticed this the last time I went to Cleveland a little over a month ago, and besides the logo, the opens for the 6, 7 and 11pm newscasts look pretty good. The stingers also use this, and they look good too.
  6. None of that would work. This is really the only way they can make this work right now. Another far fetched idea that would make this work is to cancel The Talk and give the 2pm hour to the affiliates, which won't be happening anytime soon. I personally don't think them adding a 12:30pm newscast is entirely necessary, but that's just me. Yes this would've been a smart move. But Judy has always been a strong lead-in to WPXI's newscasts, so they really don't want to mess with something that's working. And I commend them for that. But the other solution I had in m
  7. Updating this thread to say that it seems like KDKA has started a 12:30pm newscast on sister station WPCW and streaming platform CBSN Pittsburgh. It must have started today. Now all three Pittsburgh stations have a full hour of news at Noon and at 4pm starting this afternoon. Courtesy of their social media pages.
  8. A look at the changes here in Pittsburgh. Once again, Kelly Clarkson gets bumped to 3am on WPXI because of the 4pm news with Susan Koeppen, debuting later today. https://triblive.com/aande/movies-tv/tv-talk-daytime-changes-for-fall-include-jay-leno-hosted-game-show-nick-cannon-talk-show/
  9. It needs to be bigger. You can barely see it. I literally had to zoom in to this picture to actually see it.
  10. KDKA renamed their newscast to "Your Day Pittsburgh", but I'm not sure exactly when that happened.
  11. Bumping this thread to say that CBSN Baltimore has launched. https://baltimore.cbslocal.com
  12. Ok I'm glad I'm not the only one that noticed that lol.
  13. Well first it was WTAE, and now WPXI will launch a 4pm newscast coming up in September with Susan Koeppen anchoring. https://www.wpxi.com/news/top-stories/channel-11-news-launch-4-pm-newscast-this-fall/
  14. Not surprising. It was going to happen eventually. I actually thought it would happen after Ellen ended her run next year, but this works too.
  15. Well they just recently moved Judge Judy to 5pm, and with that show going away, that does open the door for a 5pm newscast. But I highly doubt it'll happen though. And you are right about 4pm. I just don't see any of them starting a 4pm newscast.
  16. Well WTAE does air Ellen at 4pm, so to me, they have a few options: 1. Try to get Kelly Clarkson from WPXI (doubtful, but possible) 2. Start a 4pm newscast (likely as they already do that for breaking news and severe weather coverage) 3. Move The Real from 1:05am to Ellen's timeslot at 4pm (which again is possible, so I wouldn't rule it out)
  17. Stacy Smith is retiring from KDKA-TV after 50 years in broadcasting, and 38 years at the station. His last day is May 30th.
  18. It looks good! Yeah I liked the now old package, but CBS and Turner did a good job with this package! I really like it!
  19. Didn't see this brought up here, so I'll bring it up. WTOV chief meteorologist Kevin Carter announced his retirement yesterday, and his last newscast was last night. Morning meteorologist Jeff Oechslein will become the new chief meteorologist, and will stay on the morning show.
  20. Rescanned my TV yesterday, and KDKA does have 2.4 active, but it only has color bars as of right now.
  21. WISH and WNDY have already been taken off of both DISH and DIRECTV.
  22. I completely agree, and I'm a Steelers fan lol! Honestly they should just cancel it, IMO, because this has basically become a soap opera at this point.
  23. According to the Trib, the decision was entirely hers...
  24. Very sad indeed. An absolute legend. May he rest in peace...
