  1. 10.4 is still bars and tone. MeTV (10.2) is HD though, which it wasn't when it was WCMH's 4.2. I was going to say Quest isn't HD, but it might just be this show. On my 48" set their crystal bug and Quest's in-show promos are definitely HD.
  2. That and ownership probably. Notice there are no Tegna, Sinclair, Nexstar, Gray, or FTS stations in that list, and he even admits Scripps stations can be hit and miss. But there are bad stations in "good" groups as well as vise-versa.
  3. A little late to the party here, but regarding the opening of an master control hub in Denver. Through the Tribune acquisition they have actually lost two stations that were master control hubs: WATN in Memphis and WISH in Indianapolis. To make up for that and to possibly consolidate their other hubs, building one from the ground up in Denver doesn't sound so cooky. WXIN is a Tribune hub, too, so I guess they could transition the WISH hub there, but who knows.
  4. Some stations (mine included) don't have a "hard out" on their 5pm hour. The break between the 5:30 and 6:00 is usually around a 1:45 give or take. As long as meters are hit everyone's happy. In fact, I think all our shows except the weekend ones start off the clock by around a minute.
  5. That building is in a rather rough area of Dayton.
  6. Yes. The former West Virginia Media Group stations still haven't been hubbed, but I think their traffic operations have been. Good to see Nexstar dumping Brutus, Tribune's proprietary master control automation. I haven't heard any good things about it. Nexstar seems to prefer Florical automation for the master control for its stations.
  7. Now in Columbus (OH) there is a crawl running on WBNS saying Spectrum viewers will lose 10TV if a new deal isn't met...
  8. I happened to be flipping through the channels and saw Daily Blast Live on WBNS. It was on after James Corden instead of an infomercial.
  9. I don't think that should be airing yet since it shows Tribune cities...
  10. But, but, but a novelty name for the process that Tegna puts their stations through to bring them in line with corporate standards. EDIT: Why does putting "-itis" on the end of "TEGNA" autocorrect to that definition? I didn't type that.
  11. Gray adding NBC and CW affiliations to KEYC (Mankato, MN) in the form of a new low power station, KMNF. https://www.keyc.com/2019/06/24/keyc-tv-adding-more-network-affiliates-this-fall/
  12. Certainly possible but the stations will see less of that back since each station will have to share profits among the others. One of the downsides of these large groups is that the good stations prop up the poor ones (fiscally speaking).
  13. OK, one more off-topic post . Since being on at WCMH Darlene Hill has said she went to Ohio State in the late 1980s. Her hiring still comes as a head-scratcher seeing how she was still freelancing in Chicago weeks before being on in Columbus. The Doug, Mona, Jimmy & Jym era at WCMH was before my time, but from all indications Doug Adair was a real newsman's newsman, and was also a good guy all-around. I don't really critique anchors too much because I don't want them telling me how to do my job. I also personally know Colleen Marshall. A hell of a journalist, she is one of the nicest peo
  14. You said good anchors. Some of those folks are rejects, and for whatever reason they have an insatiable thirst for fame and take jobs wherever. Plus reporters in a large market will bolt for an anchor job at a smaller station. RIP Mike Bowersock. He was one of the good ones. Sorry mods for drifting off topic.
  15. WBNS is carried on cable in Miami and Wyandot Counties. Miami County is nowhere near the Columbus DMA, but Wyandot does border Crawford County, which is in the Northern fringe of the DMA, so it may be the same rural cable provider to parts of Crawford County. Same goes for places in Richland and Tuscarawas Counties as those counties border counties in the Columbus DMA.
