  1. WTTTG is forgoing impeachment coverage. Fox 5 plus WDCA aired the first day of the trial but nothing beyond that
  2. in the early 90s, WWL published a magazine called Good News
  3. coverage plans for the senate impeachment trial: NBC: live coverage will be fronted by Lester Holt with Chuck Todd co-hosting from DC CBS: Norah O'Donnell will anchor from DC ABC: George Stepahnopolus anchors from New York with various guests joining him FOX: coverage will be anchored by Bill Hemmer. Broadcasting and Cable is reporting that FOX broadcast coverage is optional to affiliates. Martha Mccallum and Bret Bair will co-anchor on FNC.
  4. The final vote on impeachment is expected somewhere between 6:30 and 8pm eastern. Primetime may on the big 4 may not be impacted if the vote happens on the earlier side
  5. It appears that the full house vote to impeach Trump will occur on Wednesday. If it happens at night, the 4 major networks would face a major dilemma as FOX and CBS have the finales of "The Masked Singer" and "Survivor" scheduled for that night. Would they preempt them for the vote? Would ABC junk it's All in the Family/Jeffersons live christmas special? And if the vote is delayed to Thursday, would NBC preempt the Miss America padgent?
  6. I would guess they're losing a lot of ad revenue because of the hearings. This is why you will likely see some affiliates opt out of network coverage if this goes on for a prolonged period. Network affiliate news and program directors aren't going to keep blowing out scheduled programming for these hearings if they continue to lose ad money. Additionally, i wouldn't be surprised if in a future affiliation agreement, one of the networks makes all special reports optional unless it's a national emergency (Fox already does this)
  7. The second round of hearings has been scheduled for next week
  8. Could Days move to another network? I remember reading that Fox tried to go after it in the late 90s?
  9. I could see the networks going to rotating coverage if this goes on for an extended period of time
  10. There is nothing scheduled on Thursday that I know of, so that episode should not be impacted. Wednesday and Friday are definitely preempted
  11. Update: NBC's coverage will start at 10am Wednesday PBS will air the hearings live. I assume coverage is optional to stations FOX broadcast coverage is level 2 and will be hosted by Harris Faulkner CBS coverage will be anchored by Norah O'Donnel Trump will hold a 3:10pm news conference on Wednesday
  12. coverage plans of the impeachment hearings on broadcast and cable are as follows (will be updated as necessary) Cable: CNN, MSNBC and Fox News channel will have live gavel to gavel coverage Broadcast: CBS, ABC, and NBC have confirmed they will carry the hearings live. FOX has not confirmed if they will air the hearings
  13. who replaces shep on SOTU/primetime presidential speech/election night coverage on Fox broadcast? My guess is it will either be Jon Scott or Trace Gallagher
  14. I don't see this re-incarnation of court tv lasting long unless there is another trial of the century
  15. Appareatly, the ABC affiliate in New Orleans is foregoing the testimony in favor of regular programming
