  1. The only thing i have seen on the DirecTV Hurricane info channel is KADN & WAFB, I haven't seen anything from New Orleans yet. One more thing.. WVUE--FOX8 started their live stream on there website at NOON CDT time today.
  2. <<My Apologies beforehand if this is in the wrong thread...>> I have noticed since last night that WWL-TV & WVUE-TV are the only ones so far that have fairly consistent live streams going on their websites as Tropical Storm Barry moves towards the Louisiana coast. WDSU-TV & WGNO-TV have replays of newscasts but nothing live yet. I would bet that this will change as the storm moves closer to the coast. wwltv.com wdsu.com wgno.com fox8live.com
  3. When I took a look at the KREX/KGJT website nothing is mentioned about being blacked out by AT&T/DirecTV and even the DirecTV promise website dosn't mention KREX/KGJT. However the KXRM-FOX21 website has the banner at the top talking about getting blacked out. Weird.
  4. KDSP-AM Orange & Blue 760 is dead, it changed it's call letters June 25th and is now stunting as of this morning with a wide variety of freedom music, it's new call letters are KDFD-AM (760Khz). It is expected to be called 'Freedom 93.7' as it will be on translator K229BS at 93.7FM as well as 760KHz. It's the 3rd format for this station in 5 years. Let's see if the 3rd time's the charm here.

  5. I Don't believe there will be an affiliation switch between KDVR & KWGN. I agree that KWGN is in a vulnerable position but whoever gets the station will be better than tribune. Tribune has had ample opportunity to make KWGN a news powerhouse in Denver over the years and they haven't. The news department has already seen a merger that happened back in 2009 when KWGN was moved into the "News & Technology Center" and was being managed by Local TV, LLC.
  6. Wow I wonder what the folks in the WJLA newsroom think of the bad ratings? Yikes!!! This has to have Sinclair corporate mad. I also wonder what ratings are like at other Sinclair properties around the country?
  7. It wouldn't necessarily hurt KWGN all that much to be under the same umbrella as KMGH, KWGN hasn't been much of a factor since Tribune & Local TV, LLC got together. With that said I doubt KWGN would go to scrips they just took on KOAA and I believe that will be there focus. I hope that Nexstar or who ever get's KWGN does something with it.
  8. FTVLIve also says fox has it's eyes on WJW & KDVR/KFCT. Wonder what will happen to KWGN?
  9. KUSA added Cozi TV in December to it's digital sub channel (9.2) replacing Weather Nation TV. Today when I was out I noticed a billboard advertising Cozi TV on 9.2 & 25.3 Over the air & Comcast 249. I also noticed an ad on the side of a bus stop promoting Cozi TV, why dosn't KDEN-TV just drop Cozi and just have it on KUSA?? The KDEN signal is very weak on the south side of the Denver Metro area, while KUSA's signal covers all of the metro. If I were NBC Universal I would just move it over and be done with it-put another Spanish sub on to 25.3. I would think Tegna would be pushing for that to happen.
  10. A Missed opportunity by ABC NEWS to have a cable news channel.
  11. NBC Weather Plus was the first diginet that was sort of successful, NBC was not the reason it went off the air. The NBC Affiliates didn't want to do Weather Plus anymore so the network killed it--it kept it going on O&O stations under the NBC Plus brand for several more years before launching Cozi TV. I've always thought ABC could do more with diginets for their affillates considering they have Disney behind them. Why ABC has never launched a full out news channel for it's affiliates on a sub channel is beyond me-they could have done a lot more with "ABC News NOW" than they did. ABC News should try to take on MSNBC, FOX NEWS CHANNEL, & CNN but do it on the sub channels of it's affiliates. I think something like that would be a big success.
  12. I Wonder how this backfires on CBS?? I can't see a diginet like this lasting very long, I don't think enough people will tun in to watch.
  13. It will be interesting to see how the ratings are on WTHR in a year compared to what they are now. I Would assume Tegna will add Daily Blast Live and the Justice Network to WTHR shortly after they take over.
  14. CubsFan79 Wouldn't Pueblo/Colorado Springs tv be better than Denver? At least the Pueblo stations would have the ability to send news crews there a lot faster than the Denver stations would..
