    Newsjunkie24: The News with Shepard Smith is a much better newscast than News Nation!!!   It's certainly feels like a national newscast unlike news nation.


    I like both equally. Shep's show has  more name recognition compared to NN. I can't watch NN right now due to Nexstar's dispute with Dish, which I have to get TV.

    She must been from Hawaii, as I'm seeing in comments she's young retiring in her 50s, she must have a lot of money in the 🏦. To last her the rest of her life!!!


    Maybe she'll retire to Hawaii.

    Remember folks- we have no schedule, no website, no anything to know just what kind of channel this is going to be.


    However, in addition to Run’s House, they’ve also aired a few hours of The Jamie Foxx Show and are currently in the middle of a block of The Wayans Bros. 

    Could this be Viacom’s attempt to muddy the waters for The Grio while they’re still running color bars? 

    edit: Total Recall is on next (5pm eastern)... 


    Reminds me a little of MTV2.

    I haven't watch the show as I have other things I like to at 7PM. I always liked Shepherd Smith I was surprised he signed with CNBC I thought he'd have gone to MSNBC or CNN that is where I thought that Shepherd was going when he left Fox News.


    There  was no room for Shep at both MSNBC and CNN, which is probably why he's on CNBC. The 7:00 hour was mostly reruns prior to Shep's arrival.

    Aloha Taylor posted on Facebook that she is retiring from KSWB. Her last day will be Thursday. You can catch her on 1, 4 and 6pm on KSWB.


    She started at KGMB, worked her way to the mainland to KFMB, moved to WCCO for a year, back to San Diego at XETV and KSWB.



    Cool first name.

    I believe that Fox RSN's will not return on Dish until there deal with Sinclair is up for the local TV station and once they agree on a new deal is when RSN's return to Dish just my opinion.


    If Sinclair forces Dish to carry the RSN'S, they will likely be carried again in the next Sinclair contract. Agreed.

    Diane Deaton from WAFB is retiring after 37 years as meteorologist at the Baton Rouge station.

    Her current role is morning meteorologist and her last day is December 18.

    Steve Caparotta will fill her spot after her departure.


    Deaton, among many others, deserves a nice, long break from the hurricane season from hell, whose scale none of us could have truly anticipated.

    So for all of the work and sleepless nights Gulf & East coast meteorologists had to deal with this past summer and fall, I raise a huge glass to them. 



    Or for the past few years for that matter.

    Wait, don't they do a sports show following the 10p news on WGN-TV in Chicago? After all, they did do one for many years following the Sunday 9pm newscast dating to early in the superstation era (c. '80s).....


    I think WGN-TV still has the sports show, I could be wrong though.

    In the scheme of things, DTC sports is long overdue.  So much of the price of cable/satellite TV has been driven up by the cost of live sports, as well as the added "RSN Fees" that have been tacked on to virutally every cable/satellite bundle in existence.  Let the fans pay for it, and if they can't, then it's time for the sports leagues to come back down to reality.


    Agreed. I wonder how many viewers RSN'S actually get?

    Would it be a bad idea to have a NN produced half hour newscast run after the local news on Nexstar CW/MyNet stations? It could be done with the MN or local anchors. Why not take advantage of their station to promote NN?


    To expand my idea in the previous post, make it by state with one station within the state producing the newscast with their anchors for the entire state using NN segments - call it NewsNation Texas (or California or New York)


    That sounds like a great idea!

    Now it's one thing to login if they are airing network and syndicated programming on the website (like the NBC O&O's sites) or a local cable news station but it's another if you need a login for a local OTA newscast.


    Ironically, DISH and Nexstar are having issues right now and if a deal isn't made by this Wednesday December 2nd, DISH viewers are out of luck.

    I agree with that. But anything available free OTA, especially newscasts shouldn't be locked up behind a paywall.

    Bottom line is, you've seen one Nexstar station, you've seen them all.


    They have gotten quite good at bicycling stories between adjacent markets.  And then there's NewsNation.


    That can be said with radio and TV. So much homogenisation.
