  1. I see Springer's commentary, and raise you Carol Marin's final 10p.
  2. Those will be renamed in the short term - nobody knows to what - because, per the purchase agreement, Fox Corp. is licensing the trademarks to Disney on a temporary basis for those entities, unlike a perpetual basis for the film entities (which is still relevant, considering the vast back catalog both Twentieth and Searchlight have combined).
  3. I've been under the assumption that the bug/logo is inserted at the station level - and that simply WLS' graphics overlay was on the blink since I saw it happening during a newscast recently. If it's at MC/Encompass, however...
  4. And all us IT admins say... (Flash and Java applications are and have long been the bane of my existence. This is good news.)
  5. Jesus. As an IT admin, I both feel for y'all and am cringing at the same time. At least y'all are on Office 365...I hope.
  6. Let's not go too off topic here, but to quote today's Variety article about Alan Horn and his expanded purview...
  7. According to the purchase agreement, they can continue using the brand in perpetuity. Whether they choose to is a different story but they'd be most foolish to nix it.
  8. Full broadcast encoded in 60fps? Check. Kent Ogle on a weekend 10p? Check.
  9. Rick Mitchell was the chief at KOCO when I was in OKC and breaking into programming when needed was without question...so the smell here's coming from up on high, I have a feeling.
  10. Great example of "if it ain't broke"...I forgot the base of the package was that old.
  11. Just two years after Terry Hood joined the station and now about two weeks from her departure...coincidence? I THINK yeah, completely, but still. Simple observation.
  12. Jerry Taft was clearly going for the whole Gene Wilder-vibe with that hair.
  13. As much as I'd like that to be the case, I'm not optimistic. I don't see NBC (Sox/Bulls/Blackhawks) or Sinclair (Cubs) blinking on their "exclusive home" claims, at least for the 2020 season. Just look at how stubborn SportsNet LA has been after all.
  14. We got another one...and there's a common denominator here. AT&T and Sinclair with a deadline of next Friday.
