    Sun Broadcasting Inc

    That's what i thought. ( thank you for your reply ) Something tells me the Ft. Myers Broadcasting / Sun Broadcasting combo is a lot more complicated than what Waterman & Montclair Communications have setup.

    Sun Broadcasting Inc

    How is Sun Broadcasting Inc not a shell company to Fort Myers Broadcasting Company? They share executives, studio space & advertising depts how is this not illegal?? Sun Broadcasting owns: WARO-FM WXNX-FM WFSX-FM WNOG-AM WXCW-TV (The CW, Estrella TV) Gulf Shore Life Magazine Ft. Myers Broadcasting owns: WINK-TV (CBS, MyNetwork TV, Antenna TV) **My Network TV affiliation was added 3/3/19 & Antenna TV was added 2/28/19** WAXA-AM WINK-FM WNPL-AM WTLQ-FM

    SWX Right Now.

    If this has been covered before my apologies. I Discovered this a few weeks ago while hunting for an unrelated article I saw on Duck Duck Go. Cowles Company has an all sports channel called "SWX-Right Now" available in Spokane, Helena, Missoula-Kalispell & other markets in Montana & Idaho. There website has a live stream and it's alright, it's certainly not as polished as say AT&T Sports Net or Altitude Sports & Entertainment. Does anyone know how well this channel does in it's respective markets?? And is it's control room at KHQ in Spokane? (Another Crowles property).

    Gray selling WCAV/WVAW, buying WVIR

    Something tells me that soon WBBH will be sold, hopefully not to Gray tho. And maybe it will force a split between WBBH & WZVN.

    KDVR studio renovation

    CBlock: They only added the newsroom set in 2008 after they were purchased by Local TV, LLC. In prep for the move of KWGN into the KDVR studio facility. Prior to that the newsroom was very rarely seen. The newsroom set always seemed tacky to me, and the lighting seemed misplaced, it diffidently didn't have the same feel as say WTVT's newsroom set. I hope they get a bigger desk in the studio this go around.

    Tegna Weather Videos

    I noticed something today, on the KUSA website (I have checked some of their sister stations [WXIA, KARE, WTLV/WJXX & WZZM] and it is the same thing) all of the weather videos on Tegna websites are now from AccuWeather and not from within house like it used to be. This must have been a fairly recent change because as of late last week these videos were not on the weather page. What also is strange is if memory serves me right didn't Tegna (then Gannett Broadcasting) drop the local AccuWeather channel from most of it's stations a few years back?

    KFMB Slow Death Thread

    I Think it's because they already owned the URL.

    KTVD now has a separate website again as of mid January. (My20denver.com)

    I noticed something today, at least on the sports highlights--a lot of video is coming from Fox Sports, NY1, & Suncoast News Network. (These are the credits i have seen at least). So they appear to be sourcing some of their own video. I think KCDO has a relatively decent size audience, they air re-runs of KMGH's newscasts. I'm thinking ABC 7 Denver might know more, ask them.

    Weeters: The KCDO translator signal comes from golden Colorado on the west side of the metro area and it's a fairly weak signal, I can sometimes get it and sometimes not. Most of the time it doesn't come in.

    KCWY Cutting staff.

    According to Scott at FTVLive, The NBC Affiliate in Casper WY NBC13 (KCWY) is cutting staff and is merging with KGWN the CBS station in Cheyenne--but there parent company Gray Television is blaming the feds for the merger. This is by far one of the dumbest things I've heard in a while. With that said i have always thought it's a little bit strange that you have the NBC & ABC Affiliates in Casper but the CBS Station is in Cheyenne. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/1/24/gray-blames-government-for-cuts-at-their-station

    it dosn't appear that the segments are aired on a rotating basis, but i could be wrong. As TVIntheDesert says the Wienermobile one has played many times in the past 2 weeks, that interview was done on day 2 of the network.

    rkolsen: I Watch at: yournewsnet.com/watch-live it works as long as you have internet explorer/microsoft edge. It dosn't seem to work with Firefox. I don't get your question about the across america segment.

    The website seems to stay up to date, as for the live stream, they seem to let some stories (like the "Across America" segment) & headlines on the ticker repeat for 2 or 3 days before updating it. I don't quite understand that. You would think their would be enough content from AP, UPI, or even events across the country that could keep the ticker & the across America segment going for a while.

    WBBH New Look

    The weather graphics look like a ripoff of Tegna's WX graphics.
