    Why are they starting this new show? If this show is successful, does that mean the end of Access Live?
  2. What will happen to that hour? Since Kathy is leaving in April, NBC should move Hoda to the 9am hour to co-host the show with a new person, and the 10am hour will be what the current 9am hour is.

    I think that they should revamp their anchor team. Today In L.A. - Adrian Arambulo and Daniella Midday Report - Ted Chen & Kathy Vara 4pm - Michael Brownlee & Kathy Vara 5pm - Colleen Williams & Robert Kovacik 6pm - Robert Kovacik & Carolyn Johnson, 7-8pm on Cozi TV (New Newscast) 11pm - Colleen Williams & Chuck Henry Today In L.A. Weekend - Mekahlo Medina & Annette Areola Weekend Evening Newscast - Michelle Valles & John Cadiz Klemack

    I don't think Henry will retire, but he should. He is getting old and should let the younger generation of reporters and anchors take over. Maybe, KNBC should reduce Henry's anchor duties like they have been doing with Coleman's weather duties. By doing this, Henry will still be anchoring, but won't be off the air.
  5. So, when will we see an expansion of the weekday 11pm newscast to midnight on ktla?

    Adam Kuperstein works in New York. I think KNBC should promote someone within the station or locally, but not Robert Kovacik. Even though I don't think he should get the position, Kovacik probably will takeover the 5 & 11pm once Henry retires.

    Who will replace Chuck Henry when he retires? He's currently 72. My guess is that the station is planning on promoting Robert Kovacik as the main anchor to replace Chuck Henry. Kovacik is the primary fill in when Henry is on vacation or assignment.
  8. Chuck Henry is 72 at knbc. I guess Paul Moyer would not be the best choice. Why not promote one of their reporters. David Goldstein or a younger reporter.
  9. I agree. The Jeff Michael experiment as the main anchor at the station will not work. He will probably be demoted or let go within a couple of years. I am surprised that they did not try to hire Paul Moyer to bring in some temporary ratings improvements. He has a following with many viewers and that would help in ratings. Moyer supposedly retired from KNBC, but I heard that he was forced out because the station did not want to continue to pay him the multi million dollar contract that he was getting anymore. They previously hired popular anchors from KABC such as Harold Greene, Ann Martin, Laura Diaz, Johnny Mountain, and a bunch of reporters.
  10. Sharon Tay should be anchoring the 8 & 10pm newscast. Why is Jeff Michael doing the 5 & 11pm newscast? KABC & KTTV both did not promote him to be their main co-anchor and that was one of the main reasons why he left both stations, but now, KCBS has promoted him to be their main co-anchor at 5 & 11PM? I wished the station went outside and hired someone new. KCBS will probably go back to being in third place in ratings again behind KNBC and KABC in both the afternoons and at 11pm. There have been so many changes at the station.
  11. Since Comcast bought NBC back in 2010-11, they had several opportunities to get college sports as some of the contracts were up at the time until present day. They didn't get the rights to those conferences since they did not want to spend the kind of money that the other networks were offering. The same was true when the baseball contract was up back in 2011, & NBA contract in 2014. Even the ivy league football conference were up earlier this year and ESPN was able to get a contract to air the games instead of NBCSN. My question is, if they did not want to spend the money on these sporting events at the times when the contracts were up, why would they be willing to spend the money in the future? If they are interested in niche sporting events, why even have a sports network. They can spread the niche sporting events across their other cable networks: CNBC, USA Network, Bravo, Oxygen Network, & etc. Hockey, Nascar, Soccer and Cycling can be on CNBC and USA network, while figure skating, gymnastics, tennis, rugby, and other niche / smaller sporting events can be on Bravo & Oxygen Networks. My point is, if they are not going to invest in more popular sporting events, they don't need the NBCSN channel.
  12. Why does NBC not show more college sports, especially on their sports network? I know they have not spent that much on college sports besides for Notre Dame football for the past couple of decades, but if they want to build their sports network, they need more sports programming. If they can get pro baseball in a couple of years and more college football and college basketball, they should be able to be more competitive in terms of programming. They need to keep pro hockey and pro soccer in addition to their nascar coverage as well in order to have programming that people will want to watch.
  13. I think ktla will stop showing Jerry Springer. Kdoc is now airing the show at 9am.

    Why does the station state that Robert Kovacik is an anchor and reporter? He is just a reporter and fill in anchor.
  15. NBC should try to keep the NHL the next time the contract is up, plus try to get a piece of the MLB contract. If they can't get any of the college football conferences, try to build on their ivy league conference deal. I think that they should air more than the 4-5 games they have been doing the past few seasons for college football. For college basketball, build on their CAA & Atlantic 10 conference deal. I heard they used to air 60 games for Atlantic 10, but now only 25 games. Why not try to add more games with their current deal? If NBC really wanted to expand their presence into sports, they would have put more money and outbid the other networks into getting more popular sports properties. It seems like they are only doing enough to have a minimum presence, which in my view does not make sense if you want to have a network devoted to sports. If all they want is to have a minimum presence in the sports industry, they don't need a sports network. They can easily spread the sports programming that they have across the several cable networks that they own. Put the bulk of the programming weekends on CNBC. Put whatever other sports programming that they have during the week on CNBC primetime or USA Network, or Bravo Network or Oxygen Network. Otherwise, they should put the programming that they have during the week for sports on Golf channel, If NBC does go ahead and spend more money on sports in the future, they should go ahead and rename the Golf Channel NBCSN 2, since they will have more of a presence in the sports industry. As mentioned earlier, if they do spend more money and do those suggestions posted earlier, they should have enough programming to spread across two networks for most of the year, especially on the weekends. During the weekday, the NBCSN feed should show sports related programming. the NBCSN2 feed should show a newly created sports feed that NBC develops that will air most of the day. They should use the strategy they have developed for CNBC and MSNBC in terms of giving their talent on air time to talk specifically about sports related stuff throughout the day and into the evening if there are not enough sports events for them to cover. This would be the strategy CNBC and MSNBC has with there talent discussing the topics of business and politics during the day on their respective networks.
