  1. Comcast no longer carries KPJR-TV here in Denver (Greeley) on it's systems, according to the Channel finder. In northeast Colorado it is over the air only on 38.2, I have never been able to receive 38.1 or 38.2 where I live in Denver County, there transmitter is 38.8 miles northeast of me. I don't see Dr. Phil's cable network surviving, tbh...
  2. CNBC is reporting this evening that ESPN, FOX & Warner Brothers/Discovery are going to launch a yet to be named streaming service for sports, don't know much more than that yet. (Notably absent from this are Comcast's NBC Universal & Capital Amusements CBS). https://www.cnbc.com/2024/02/06/espn-fox-and-warner-bros-discovery-to-launch-joint-sports-streaming-platform-this-year.html
  3. White Knight Broadcasting's 2 stations remain dark on Dish, according to Dish Network. They were pulled the same day as the mission broadcasting stations. Friday January 6, 2023. It must suck to be White Knight.
  4. KDVR / KFCT (FOX31) & KWGN (Colorado's Own Channel 2) employees that work the combined assignment desk & the Nexstar master control hub for a dozen Nexstar TV stations across the country intend to unionize according to an article posted on the station's website yesterday. If this comes to pass they would be the 2nd & 3rd Denver TV stations to Unionize after KCNC "CBS NEWS Colorado" went union in late 1995 after being acquired by Group W/CBS. I also have this up on my blog about Denver TV stations that can be found in my profile. Article here:https://kdvr.com/news/local/nexstar-workers-in-denver-declare-intent-to-unionize/
  5. WBBH has updated it's website (NBC-2.COM) to the Hearst web platform as of today & Hearst Managed--WZVN has followed suite (ABC-7.COM). Both stations dropped the Franke Media powered websites, that had been in use since 2016.
  6. It Seems odd, but what do i know. KKCO has updated it's logo without the NBC Peacock,This is the vertical logo, they have a horizontal logo but I can't capture it.
  7. So has Tegna & DirecTV reached a deal? or have they extended the current agreement, because as of 6:42PM MST KUSA & KTVD are still available. Anyone know??
  8. The 4 O'clock newscast is being done from the stations front lobby. As seen below on the left. We'll see about the 5PM & 6PM/"NEXT" broadcasts. Does anyone know if they are doing maintenance or updating things in studio "A"? The NOON newscast was in studio "A" this afternoon.
  9. At 5:50 PM MDT / 7:50 PM EDT DirecTV has activated the "HD SEVERE WEATHER CHANNEL" & The "SEVERE WEATHER MIX CHANNEL".. Also MYFOXHURRICANE.COM, NBC-2.COM, & FOX13NEWS.COM have live streams going at there respective websites.
  10. Don't know if other Tegna NBC stations are doing this or not, but KUSA is copying the TODAY Show & NBC NIGHTLY NEWS, with a coutdown clock during the first commercial break during the10PM newscast. (It might also be on KTVD but have not watched the 9pm newscast.) They started this Monday 8/13/23..
  11. KUSA / KTVD Sports director Rod Mackey announced that he is signing off today after 23 years at KUSA. He is not saying what his future plans are just yet. No one has been named Sports director yet. He is the 4th longest tenured on air person currently at KUSA.
  12. Stupid question.... Is Steve Pontius retiring? And is N/D Darrel Adams retiring?
  13. So Direc TV is saying on their looping blackout screen on KDVR / KFCT & KWGN that Dish Network has had Nexstar stations off of their service since January 2023. Is this true? Are nexstar stations not currently on Dish Network? Thanks...
  14. KWGN cut it off and went to Big Bang Theory in progress, with low audio.
  15. Would someone explain something to me please? Why do so many Tegna stations have QVC, QVC2, SHOP LC, & HSN on their digital sub channels? Does Tegna make bank off of these sub channels?? It would seem to me that something like Movies! or Weather Nation TV or Comet would do better at retaining viewers?? KTVD (SHOP LC) KONG (QVC) KING (QVC2) WXIA (SHOP LC) WATL (QVC) KPNX (SHOP LC) WOI (QVC & QVC2) WFAA (SHOP LC) KHOU (SHOP LC) KMPX (SHOP LC & QVC2) KREM (SHOP LC & QVC2) WZZM (QVC & SHOP LC) KARE (HSN)
  16. This was the first time CNBC has broadcasted it live on the network. This was the 4th year they have done a live stream at CNBC.com.
  17. Okay this is just me thinking out loud here... KBCW > KRON KMAX > NO OPTIONS KSTW> KONG WKBD>WADL Sub Channel WPCW>WTAE OR/WPGH Sub Channels WTOG>NO OPTIONS WPSG>NO OPTIONS WUPA>WPCH OR/WANF Sub Channels So I only see the CW missing in 3 markets here after CBS drops them. My Network TV is without stations in 24 Markets, they will do just fine!!!
  18. Reporter Luis De Leon has left KUSA / KTVD effective Thursday, no word yet on where he is headed. He had been with the Denver duopoly since January 2022. https://www.earnthenecklace.com/luis-de-leon-leaving-kusa-tv-9news/
  19. Well it seems the folks behind "News Net" (the CNN news source/ AP TV News highlight channel). has launched a 2nd network out of Cadillac MI called "Sportsnews Highlights". https://sports.newsnetmedia.com/
  20. Sooo Is this over now?? Can Tegna get back to gee I don't know, running TV stations & focus on it's news departments??
  21. KUSA & KTVD are now on the hunt for a new news director. Megan Jurgemeyer has abruptly left the Denver duopoly after 3 years & her bio was scrubbed from the station's website this morning. I have more on my blog about it, and there is info here as well: https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2023/4/15/gone-just-like-that [ Oh and Denver duopoly KMGH, KCDO/KSBS-CD has been with out a news director since April 4, 2023. ]
  22. The F.C.C. Will not allow that, the market is too small. And I'm sure that Ms. Klunkler & Montclare Communications don't want to sell just yet. I would love to see WZVN go to a completely different owner at some point, Tegna, News press & Gazette, or Hubbard, a group that would separate it completely from WBBH. Not that it would happen necessarily.
  23. It's too small of a market, NBC Universal isn't interested.
  24. WOW!!! I'm surprised but not surprised, I'm just glad it's not sinclair getting the station. I would love to see WBBH & WZVN out of the LMA at some point.
  25. I I Saw this Gem on Facebook this evening, about "KMGH news letters". I wonder if other E.W. Scripps stations are being sued for this? I didn't feel like filling out an attorney retainer questionnaire. If anyone here knows details let me know I'm curious.
