Weekend Anchor (3/8)



  1. KUSI is adding Rafer Weigel to its news team. It's actually a return to SD for Weigel, who worked at KUSI earlier in his career. Rafer, son of the late Chicago sportscaster Tim Weigel, worked with Jenny Milkowski at WFLD in Chicago. On a public FB post announcing his move came this comment: Later in the same thread... Take that for what it's worth.
  2. When an entity has been using the same font on their logo for about six decades, you'll notice when it changes.
  3. They didn't modernize anything. It's gone. That leaves KPIX and WJZ-TV as the only legacy Westinghouse stations still using the Group W font.
  4. I found those posts on FB, it was from some former 10TVers who worked with him. They said he passed in London at age 78 back in January of this year. It is a bit surprising that there was no obit on him in The Columbus Dispatch or on either WBNS-TV or WSYX. Perhaps that's what Lou wanted or recieved from years of living abroad and under-the-radar.
  5. Dang it! I stand corrected then. Thank you.
  6. Ooo, someone's salty on a Sunday. Just admit you are wrong and say "my bad" instead of being arrogant and ignorant.
  7. You obviously didn't read the OP fully. It says: Titles such as Good Day (Timbuktu) and Today in (Your Neck of the Woods) – with or without the network/channel number tag – don't fall under this criteria. These are common titles/daypart branding which tend to be associated with stations owned by/affiliated with a specific network: Today in... for NBC and Good Day... for Fox (with a notable exception being WSVN in Miami, whose morning show has been called Today in South Florida since that station was an NBC affiliate).
  8. You missed the point of the theme. Please reread the original post.
  9. Off-topic, but when did Lou Forrest pass? I couldn't find anything about it and as far as I know he's still with us.
  10. I personally know one of the anchors/reporters at said station in Cleveland. At some point, I hope to ask this person how they feel about these titles and current (soon-to-be-former) ownership's continuing efforts to dumb-down the news...
  11. I'm surprised no one has mentioned The Scene, which WSM-TV/WSMV in Nashville used for many years. And also Pulse, used by WTVT in Tampa and CFCF-TV in Montreal. Wait, I just did.
  12. That still leaves out Lima, Toledo, and Zanesville. Not to mention Marietta, which is covered in the Parkersburg WV market.
  13. Or, the 1992 New York Mets. The worst team money could buy. I'm in Ohio right now and I watched it on WCMH-TV. Where did it air in the non-Nexstar markets?
  14. We're talking one market here. And perhaps WMAR and NBC worked it out so that network promos scheduled during the game broadcast were made-good after the pre-emptions.
