  1. The old TRL studio is above ground and the last thing that area needs in the present circumstances is a crowd.
  2. At least WNBC is actually doing something this year as opposed to scraping it for the year
  3. CBS still has the Times Square studio where they held their election coverage from.
  4. CNN is moving back into their old Techwood campus, actually. But I do think once the election passes, there will be changes in management as Jeff Zucker's contract run up through the election
  5. If they did launch as an OTA subchannel, they would also have to talk to cable and satellite companies for channel space which would subject them to blackouts if CBS and the providers can't agree on a deal. If they stream directly on their website, they don't need to worry about that.
  6. Parts of the CBS Broadcast Center still remain closed so there is limited operations still ongoing for CBSN and for WCBS-TV. There are select hours for the national CBSN feed at 10am ET with Anne Marie Green and Vladimir Duthiers and 1pm for Teena Ninan. Other times CBSN Boston handles the daytime that isn't covered by breaking news. As for WCBS-TV, they would have someone in the temporary studio and someone at home (5om had Maurice Dubois from home and 6pm with Dana Tyler and both had Kristine Johnson back at HQ)
  7. Doesn’t CBS still have the old WLNY 10/55 studio in Melville or did they sell that off too? Last I heard of it, it was converted into a bureau for CBS 2
  8. NY1 has been on Optimum for years now. They only recently picked up the HD feed and moved NY1 to channel 8 to make way for the Optimum Channel
  9. According to FTVLive, after the ND Kris Knutsen fired GDLA anchor Steve Edwards after allegations of sexual harassment against him, KTTV never recovered. From what it looked like KTTV dug itself into a hole it couldn't get out of.
  10. Alex still does traffic, but has also been a fill-in anchor when needed, primarily on the morning, noon and 5pm newscasts. She also anchors for CBSN New York as well as the national CBSN, typically hosting the 1pm ET- 5pm slot.
  11. Before Alice bought Optimum, Cablevision back in 2013, laid off the entire on-air traffic team and switched to automated messages. http://tunedinnyc.com/2013/11/18/cablevisions-traffic-and-weather-makes-major-overhaul/ They would later simulcast select games from their high school sports network, News 12 Varsity and switched to infomercials overnight soon after Altice took over.
  12. Starting on August 1st, News 12 Traffic and Weather will become the new News 12+. Here is a promo on the new channel
  13. At the least the networks also own stations in the next market over, in Philadelphia. In the case of ABC, if things really went dire, they could get assistance from either their sister station in Philadelphia, WPVI 6ABC or their corporate cousins at ESPN in either their Bristol, CT studios or their South Street Seaport studios in Lower Manhattan, which was unaffected by the blackout. The blackout affected Fox News, since they were on Sixth Avenue but not WNYW, which is on East 67th Street. NBC also has studios in Wall Street for CNBC, if they couldn't make it to New Jersey. And if CBS ever nee
