  1. Yes, the NJ website has a new look. However the older News12 logo is used, as it is on air. Only the graphic on Altice One menu's is the new one. I checked out the Cheddar website but it appears different. No change to on air graphics or look.
  2. Yes that is one of the Altice One menu pages.
  3. Their, not there. It reminds me of the Cheddar logo as well which makes sense. I noticed it on my Altice One guide on Monday. I have not noticed it on air on News12NJ as of yet.
  4. Another new reporter, Anjali Hemphill. From what I could see she came from WTTG (Fox) in DC.
  5. WNBC has named a new weekend anchor, coming from the CBS O&O in Dallas. She begins Nov. 4. https://tvnewscheck.com/article/more-news/240112/gilma-avalos-named-wnbc-weekend-evening-news-anchor/?utm_source=Listrak&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=Gilma+Avalos+Named+WNBC+Weekend+Evening+News+Anchor&utm_campaign=Nexstar+%26+Sook%3a+TVN's+Station+Group+Of+The+Year
  6. That is not true. Department stores like Macy's, Lord & Taylor, Bloomingdales, Best Buy, PC Richard and Son, and others continue to advertise in my local paper. Not as much as they used to.
  7. As I said it is a vicious circle they have created. Cut reporters and columnists, many long time favorites, cut content, lose subscribers, then lose advertising. It's not a good model. Once GateHouse takes over, I'll probably drop my subscription too.
  8. Be careful what you wish for. This merger is not good news for journalism or its readers. GateHouse basically kills newspapers, eliminating most staff, cut content and include much less locally generated stories. They bought the paper where I grew up, and it is a shadow of itself. Their website also has a draconian fire wall, 3 here articles a month. That's all. Gannett bought my local paper 2 years ago (the Bergen/North Jersey Record) they, got rid of a good portion of the staff, cut content but is still better than a GateHouse run paper. Sadly, when GateHouse managers take over, which they will considering New Media/GateHouse is buying Gannett but using the name for the combined operation, even worse cuts are going to be made that will beg the question: why bother subscribing anymore. Operators like GateHouse have made a vicious cycle. If they invested, beefed up local reporting, then they too can have a renaissance like the Post or Times. The DOJ approving this merger is the death of many more local papers. I'd rather have a Newhouse/Advance paper despite the cuts made at the Star Ledger. It's still much better than the Record under Gannett's stewardship.
  9. Of the choices of Sinclair, Nexstar, Tegna and Scripps - they actually ended up with the better owner of those 4. Tegna is ruining all their stations (WXIA, KSDK, among more). Nexstar, like Sinclair only knows to cut, cut, cut. Hopefully there is no movement on changing ownership rules considering the obsolete UHF discount was restored, which allowed this deal and Nexstar does not take over.
  10. For the first time in 71 years, WPIX is under new ownership. As of today, it is part of Scripps Television Stations, one of the spin offs from the Tribune/Nexstar merger (thank goodness). https://pix11.com/2019/09/19/wpix-under-new-ownership-for-first-time-in-71-year-history-acquired-by-e-w-scripps/
  11. Sometime in the last half hour or so it seems that the WPIX website footer was updated to say Scripps Stations Group, E.W. Scripps. Company. Earlier it still said Tribune. No lighthouse. However there is a very prominent story, with the Scripps logo, announcing that for the first time in 71 years WPIX has new ownership. It definitely is the end of an era.
  12. I think time will tell what changes Scripps makes to WPIX. I'm sure the open, graphics will be the corporate Scripps look and feel.
  13. New meteorologist Matt Brickman made his inaugural broadcast on tonight's 6 pm broadcast.
  14. Fox5, WNYW has made it official on the new anchor team for Good Day Wake Up: https://tvnewscheck.com/article/top-news/238966/new-co-hosts-for-wnyws-good-day-wake-up/?utm_source=Listrak&utm_medium=Email&utm_term=New+Co-Hosts+For+WNYW’s+‘Good+Day+Wake+Up’&utm_campaign=Meredith%2c+Dish+Reach+New+Retrans+Deal
