News Director (7/8)



  1. I would think with a new ABC Broadcast Center being built, they would not invest in a new studio until the move in a year or two.
  2. The deal that was made many years ago was that WWOR ch 9 would move to NJ, and be NJ centric with news. That lasted a few years when they started to be more a tri-state newscast then dropped NJ coverage after being bought by Fox. Eventually Fox closed their news department. Several politicians want to challenge the license in saying Fox is in violation with the old agreement. Thing is, Fox has closed and destroyed the former studios. The channel today is of little value with judge shows, many hours of Family Feud and the My Network repeats. NJPBS has an evening show, but its produced by Thirteen, and is only a half hour, so it scapes the surface of a few news stories. When News 12 NJ started, it was co-produced with the state's largest newspaper. That deal ended, and since then Optimum has diluted the effort, getting a lot worse the last few months. It is a shame since there is a need despite the coverage of big stories by the NY flagships or Philly stations.
  3. As a NJ resident, without real local news - not filler crap that belongs on news 12 plus, the station is useless. It seemed to stay more local than it’s siblings but that trend has changed the last few months.
  4. It would be helpful to know which specific O&Os outside DC are NOT airing the hearings like WNYW. It clearly is a statement. Unlike the other networks their affiliates don’t seem to have a must carry mandate for news special reports.
  5. Are any Fox O&Os outside the beltway broadcasting the hearings? Fox5 New York is not. Judge shows ruled the afternoon. Nor was it put on their useless co-owned station.
  6. Fox5 in NY still will not carry the hearings. I guess its a Fox Mandate. NBC4NY swtiched to golf at 2 pm, rather than carrying the full hearing and sending viewers back to USA.
  7. She is promoting her new book, which focuses much on her father (mother) and mother. There was an article in yesterday NYTimes as well and she plugged the book at the end of her MSNBC show.
  8. Fox New York flagship WNYW is on regular programming. Useless sister station my9 WWOR is on regular programming. Nexstar scam owned PIX11 is on regular programming.
  9. Tony Awards. Hoping for more “eyes.”
  10. Fox 5 WNYW in DMA 1 was on regular programming. No surprise.
  11. His timeline is 10 years according to the article. Short term his focus is on owning local stations. The reality is, unless someone is part of any negotiations, no one knows what will happen to the CW. Until then its speculation coming from cookie crumb tidbits like that Sook article.
  12. The thought crossed my mind early this morning when I saw it. Anyone remember the circumstances under which she left?
  13. Luckily as I scrolled down I saw from the map this is WLS in Chicago. Are only the weather graphics changed? Not knowing their current look, it is evolutionary or a major relaunch? I just switched to WABC and looks the same so far.
  14. So is WNBC. I assume all NBC owned stations are.
