    The "3" Thread

    It actually looks really good. They just need to get rid of that stupid logo, even though they won't lol.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. 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...
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. And except for Big Brother on CBS as they usually do an eviction episode live on Thursday night, and they originally pushed it to Friday because of the hearing, but has pushed it to Sunday night instead.
  8. While that is a good idea, and I'm all for it, it wouldn't be a clean deal should that ever happen, and I highly doubt it would.

    When this rebrand took place, What Matters Most was the name of the 6pm newscast. It isn't now.

    The "3" Thread

    Resurrecting this thread with some news about a subtle change at WKYC. So it appears that the "What Matters Most" title on their 6pm newscast is gone. It's now just 3 News at 6, according to NewsActive3's most recent video uploaded yesterday. https://youtu.be/8UJoDlz7mGM
  11. And KYW. They haven't made the switch yet.
  12. I mean I get where you're coming from. WCVB used to broadcast the marathon for the longest time in the 90s and 2000s, but WBZ didn't do a bad job covering the race for as long as they did. Getting back to next year's race. I wonder if CVB will bring Mike Lynch out of retirement for this. I'm not speculating either way. It's just a thought.
  13. Yeah that's what I was thinking. I know ESPN has WABC's reporters along the marathon route. But who will be producing coverage of the race though? Does WABC and ESPN jointly produce coverage of the NYC Marathon?
  14. Not sure if this is worthy of its own thread (feel free to lock if not), but the Boston Marathon is moving to WCVB and ESPN beginning with next year's running. The other Hearst stations in New England (WMUR, WMTW and WPTZ) will simulcast WCVB's coverage of the race. https://www.wcvb.com/article/boston-marathon-new-broadcast-home-wcvb-channel-5-patriots-day-2023/40377262 https://espnpressroom.com/us/press-releases/2022/06/espn-and-wcvb-channel-5-named-exclusive-broadcast-partners-for-the-boston-marathon/ https://www.baa.org/espn-and-wcvb-channel-5-named-exclusive-broadcast-partners-boston-marathon
  15. Yes exactly. Plus in a market with only 3 news departments, their ratings are definitely better than some of their sister stations in bigger markets with more news departments, so that also has to play a factor in CBS keeping KDKA. It might not be necessarily. If Nexstar does what WPXI does with WPGH and keeps KDKA's newscasts on WPCW, then it wouldn't really be that hard to sell the station. If it can happen across the state in Philly (WPVI/WPHL), then why can't it happen in Pittsburgh?
  16. CBS is not giving up KDKA. Ever. Under any circumstances. I can never see that happening. That is one of their crown jewel stations and they value it. They aren't going to sell it. Now WPCW on the other hand? That is possibly a different story. If duops aren't CBS' thing and should they want to unload the CW O&Os (which would be a very tricky process), then it's not out of the realm of possibility that they sell WPCW to Nexstar. I don't think or know if it's all that likely, but the possibilty is there. And to your point, @Kenneth Kissel, Nexstar does own a bunch of stations surrounding the Pittsburgh market, so them having a presence here would only make sense.
  17. They can get a new newsroom (which they needed that too), yet they still have a set that dates back 15 years. How does that make any sense at all?
  18. As soon as today. It changed over some time this morning.
  19. It's not WBZ she's going to. It's WJZ in Baltimore. And @24994J, here is a link for you: https://www.viacomcbspressexpress.com/cbs-news-and-stations/releases/view?id=59448
  20. It looks like the logo got an update. Courtesy of the @MM_MBB_TV Twitter page
  21. Ok a couple things with this. 1. Why is Denise anchoring this newscast? Doesn't she just do the 6pm? And 2. KDKA already does Pittsburgh Today Live at 9am (which is technically a lifestyle show), so I'm not sure why they'd start a 9am newscast when they already have a locally produced show that seems to be successful in that slot.
  22. I completely agree with this. A fourth news department would help this town, but it'll never happen sadly.
  23. That's stupid. Maybe since Wendy Williams got cancelled, they can move it to 11am. That would be the smart thing to do.
  24. Yeah I know, but they air it in the graveyard slot of 3am, so I was hoping maybe WTAE would pick it up and move it to 3pm.
  25. I was hoping Kelly Clarkson would replace Ellen on WTAE. I guess it won't.
