  1. KPXE-TV, Ch. 50 in Kansas City, MO now has the following lineup. 50.1 is Ion Television 50.2 is Grit (Showing CourtTV info.). 50.3 is CourtTV (Showing Grit info.). 50.4 is Ion Shop (Showing Laff info.). 50.5 is QVC Over the Air. 50.6 is HSN. The lineup on Scripps owned KMCI-TV, Ch. 38 & KSHB-TV, Ch. 41 is still: 38.1 Independent 38.2 Bounce TV 38.3 Court TV Mystery 38.4 Court TV 41.1 NBC 41.2 Grit 41.3 Laff I wanted to record the switchover of Qubo to Grit & Ion Plus to CourtTV, but I missed it. CourtTV is now
  2. A weather forecast from then NBC affiliate KCBJ-TV (Now ABC affilate KMIZ-TV.), Ch. 17 in Columbia\Jefferson City, MO, featuring the late Greg Crain, ca. November 1984.
  3. To be a little more clear, it KSHB-TV, Ch. 41 & KMCI-TV, Ch. 38, both of which are owned by Scripps, that are supposed to launch ATSC 3.0 by the end of Summer 2021. In prepration for this, Bounce TV, Court TV, Court TV Mystery, Grit & Laff are also supposed to move to subchannels of KPXE-TV, Ch. 50, which Scripps has bought & spun off to INYO Broadcast Holdings, which has made an agreement with Scripps to carry Ion & the other Katz diginets.
  4. NBC Technical Difficulties at the Orange Bowl (January 1992). I don't know if this has been shared here before.
  5. Somebody else on the AARoads.com forum found this. It looks like they were getting some video for a news report about the high school across the road. https://www.google.com/maps/@33.6809526,-112.0054648,3a,38.2y,347.91h,80.58t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sjhusqWbIvQBmnfqoSn2hQw!2e0!7i16384!8i8192
  6. KSHB-TV in Kansas City, MO, also did the same thing with their NBC WeatherPlus subchannel on Ch. 41.2, only in 2013, they switched to CoziTV. They have since switched to Grit in early 2020.
  7. I checked & you're right. I had forgotten about WFMZ-TV's 24/7 weather channel. I remember seeing an episode of a PBS travel\folk art show called "Rare Visions & Roadside Revelations", which was produced by one of my local PBS stations (KCPT-TV in Kansas City, MO.) & at the beginning of one episode, the three guys that hosted the show were, I think in a motel room, somewhere in the Philadelphia, PA area & were watching WFMZ-TV's 24/7 weather channel. The episode was made sometime around 2002. Both KMIZ-TV & WFMZ-TV are claiming to have the first 24/7 weather channel, even t
  8. Kansas City, MO is supposed to get ATSC 3.0 by the end of Summer 2021.
  9. The local 24/7 weather channels kinda predated the popular smartphones by about 4 to 5 years.
  10. There are still some TV stations that carry WeatherNation (Some carry the raw feed & others include local weather information.). I think it's pretty safe to say that their popularity has waned, not just due to smartphones, but also due to the internet & streaming (WeatherNation has their own online stream.) One thing that I've read is that the first TV station to operate a 24/7 weather channel was ABC affiliate, KMIZ-TV, Ch. 17 in Columbia, MO, which launched in late 2003 (It was replaced with MeTV on January 9, 2012.).
  11. Some clips from KEKR-TV (Now KSMO-TV.), Ch. 62 in Kansas City, MO.
  12. I've got some old prerecorded "public domain" VHS tapes that have old cartoons on them. One tape called "All Star Cartoons Video featuring Porky Pig" actually had a technical diffuculty recorded on it (I've seen technical diffuculties on TV, but very, very rarely on prerecorded, store-bought VHS tapes.). I am wondering if anyone else have seen technical problems on prerecorded tapes.
  13. A 6PM newscast from KCMO-TV (Now KCTV-TV.), Ch. 5 in Kansas City, MO, from October 1959.
  14. KMBC-TV, Ch. 9, Kansas City, MO, Complete Late Newscast From 3-24-1991, with Peggy Breit (Now retired.), Dave Stewart (Who also worked at Metro Sports.) & Meteorologist Bruce Jones (Now at Midland Radio Corporation.). Mike Walter, who was featured in the lineup, but was taking the night off on the evening of this newscast, is now at CGTN America.
  15. KCWB-TV (Now KCWE-TV.) Ch. 29, Kansas City, MO, Technical Diffuculties, Circa May 1997. KCPT-TV, Ch. 19, Kansas City, MO, Viewer Discretion Advised Disclaimer, Circa May 2004 KCPT-TV, Ch. 19, Kansas City, MO, Tornado Warning & Weather Crawl, Circa May 2004.
