  1. The Charlotte stations being sold is a mild surprise. Not so much WITI (previously a FOX O&O following the absorption of New World Communications until it and several other smaller O&O's were sold) or the KCPQ/KZJO duopoly (FOX apparently has been eyeing them for years going back at least to 2014 {with the reverse compensation dispute that saw FOX threatening to pull their affiliation, which would have ended the day before the 2014 NFC Championship Game})
  2. Funny you bring that up (and not just because that happens to be my channel ) Not sure if this is a downgrade or lateral move for Rob.
  3. Based on this latest development, a number of NBC News personnel, most prominently longtime Pentagon correspondent Pete Williams are demanding answers from the brass. https://www.thedailybeast.com/nbc-staff-confront-network-president-noah-oppenheim-over-lauer-rape-claim-absolute-disgrace
  4. Agreed. About the only way I could see this interview tarnishing Tamron Hall is if she tosses a series of softball questions to Lauer and ignores asking any tough questions.
  5. Figured I may look a little deeper apt that site later (just made a quick peek and the search results display reminds me of the site for C-Span)
  6. Looks like the sexual misconduct accusations that led to Matt Lauer getting the axe were more serious than previously thought, as a former colleague at NBC is quoted in Ronan Farrow's upcoming book "Catch and Kill" as accusing Lauer of raping her while the Today show crew was covering the 2014 Sochi Olympics https://mobile.twitter.com/TODAYshow/status/1181898052979830790
  7. And off the heels of the loss of Cokie Roberts, it's being reported that former NBC and ABC correspondent Sander Vanocur has passed away at 91. https://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/wireStory/veteran-television-newsman-sander-vanocur-dies-91-65675917 Among the things Sander was known for would include being a panelist on the first Kennedy-Nixon debate and being the last surviving member of the "Four Horsemen", as NBC used to call their 1960s convention floor quartet of Vanocur, Frank McGee, John Chancellor and Edwin Newman.
  8. From Ellis Feaster's channel, here's a 1994 episode of WPVI's long-running children's show "Captain Noah" https://youtu.be/u_9S19N3WLs From a search I did after running across the video, this is apparently the first full episode of the series that I've found an upload of.
  9. Tough year for Cleveland viewers with several well-known personalities passing on gets tougher with the death of Fred McLeod last night at the age of 67. McLeod, most recently the local television play-by-play broadcaster for the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers, had previously filled the same role with the Detroit Pistons as well as working as a sports anchor at WJ(K)W (where wife Beth is currently working as a meteorologist) and WDIV. https://fox8.com/2019/09/10/longtime-sportscaster-cavs-announcer-fred-mcleod-dies-at-67/
  10. I think it's safe to say that this might be the earlier surviving footage of anything from Hampton Roads 1960 WAVY-TV weather segment
  11. Figured someone was heading out the door once Craig Moeller returned. Hoping for the best for both Crystal Harper and Kristen Crowley.
  12. From the pannoni4 channel, a June 30, 1981 edition of the CBS Evening News. To my knowledge, this is the first time I've run across a CBS newscast from the period where they were transitioning from the Walter Cronkite era graphics to use Handel Gothic as the font before switching early in 1982 to the Serifa typeface used until late November 1987. https://youtu.be/AQVZ9Otul7o
  13. 1990 WRC special report on the cocaine trial of Washington, D.C. Mayor Marion Barry https://youtu.be/01am066Og5c
  14. If there were any few remaining doubts about WWOR being a New Jersey station in name only, the beginning of 9 Broadcast Plaza's (sold late last year) date with the wrecking ball should put it to rest. https://www.nj.com/hudson/2019/06/bye-bye-channel-9-demolition-begins-at-secaucus-based-tv-station.html
  15. One other note regarding Deck Shuffling number 248 or so at CBS News, and that is the newscast moving to Washington in the fall on a permanent basis. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/cbs-news-announces-anchor-changes-at-cbs-this-morning-and-cbs-evening-news/ Going off what I remember reading about, the last time a Big 3 newscast was based at least in part in the nation's capital was during Frank Reynolds' tenure as part of the original 3-man crew for ABC World News Tonight (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong)
