  1. WJAC has had the new graphics since January. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=563KJ0adigc
  2. Indeed, conservatives who can't stand WKYC and Sinclair are going to the only other place most likely to preach their message, Gray Station WXIX. If you don't believe me consider this, In Cleveland, Gray is trying this same strategy with WOIO and is failing against Nexstar there.
  3. According to the last update. (https://www.wvxu.org/post/wkrc-tv-wins-may-sweeps-news-ratings#stream/0) WCPO was 3rd and WLWT was 4th. WKRC having an older viewership doesn't surprise me. Most Sinclair stations have older viewership. what surprises me is Scripps' flagship station (WCPO) and Hearst station (WLWT) are so low in the ratings despite both companies known to have good news operations throughout the country. Is Cincinnati more of a conservative leaning city then I thought?
  4. Here is the worst from the Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Riots 2 weeks ago.WPXI (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIF1k_1Zqj8) WTAE {https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTaHKYmioIU}
  5. I wish Cox would just move this segment to social media only so it can rot. This is so repetitive and stupid and not worth anyone's time.
  6. PXI has been my go-to for the last several years now. But their are several things I don't like . 1. It seems like several reporters rush through stories and push back information till later newscasts and then just repeats the same line constantly. KDKA-TV and WTAE are much more thorough. 2. Their focus on hard news is good on paper and Live segments but it is very lackluster on social media. Much of the talent just repeats links from the main page and the stories are always incomplete. 3. I don't like their local steals and deals segment that they air before commerical breaks from a former QVC Host ( I have called the station several times to remove the segment).
  7. Pittsburgh suffers the same problem except in the morning where WTAE is still the king (or queen because they have all females in morning drive). WPXI (Cox Media Group) mainly focuses on Hard News. They just started a "Breaking News Desk". KDKA-TV (CBS O&O) dominates every timeslot except in the Morning where they are in the basement.
  8. I'm still waiting for Pittsburgh PA (KDKA-TV) and Norfolk VA (WTKR-TV) to get turns anchoring soon. Most Florida stations (Except WTSP and WKRG) could be a good option for June. I would also like to see Oregon and more of the Midwest get a shot as well.
  9. We should all be seeing ratings bumps throughout selective markets due to COVID-19 Coverage. I'll Start with Pittsburgh Provided by Rob Owen of the Pittsburgh Post Gazette In household ratings, KDKA-TV ticked up at 5 a.m. but saw ratings decline at 6 a.m. Numbers were also down for WPXI-TV and WTAE-TV at 5 and 6 a.m. Rank order remained the same: WTAE first, WPXI second, KDKA third. But beyond that time period, household news ratings increased for all stations in all time periods. The only notable decline: Third-place “Ellen” at 4 p.m. on WTAE opposite news on KDKA (No. 1 in the time period) and “Judge Judy” on WPXI (No. 2). The 6 p.m. half-hour was an especially tight race with KDKA and WTAE essentially tied for first in household ratings. Ratings released Thursday by Nielsen include both household ratings that reflect a measure of overall popularity and demographic ratings that are the basis for setting advertising rates. TV commercials are generally sold on demos, which can be sliced and diced in assorted ways (men, women, age, income), but viewers ages 25-54 are one of the key demographics used to sell ads in a newscast. In the demos, newscasts’ trajectories generally mirrored the household ratings with demographic ratings for noon, evening and late news all on the rise for all stations’ newscasts compared to May 2019. Weekday mornings, WPXI saw its demo ratings tick up at 5 and 6 a.m. KDKA had first-place demo wins at noon, 4, 5 and 6 p.m. WPXI came in first at 5 a.m. and 11 p.m. (and was a hair’s length behind KDKA in the 6 p.m. half-hour). WTAE was first at 6 a.m.
  10. One of the KDKA photographers I'm friends with was talking on Facebook about it and brought up the idea. I don't believe it will actually happen though.
  11. The only one that actually looked like they did any action instead of running a crawl was KDKA-TV. I also heard they may air the West Coast CBSEN feed on sister station WPCW-TV at 11 PM.
  12. From Joe Flint of the Wall Street Journal: CBS News experienced technical difficulties tonight that prevented the CBS Evening News from airing at 6:30 pm, ET on the CBS Television Network. The issue is being resolved and the Mountain and West Coast versions of the CBS Evening News will air during the regular time slots.
  13. I'm curious if New York or LA could be used for the west coast feed if DC continues to have issues?
  14. KDKA-TV, Which airs the CBSEN at 7 PM also had this issue but quickly switched back to KDKA-TV News with the weekend open. Many local promos in place of the commercials. I will try to pull in KCBS or KCNC to see if it airs on the west coast.
  15. Here is a WPXI Promo with Lee VO they have used since 2017. This will be interesting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k_gJ4iQcoZA
