  1. Pretty sure @ABC 7 Denver meant KXAN not XAS. It's Monday.
  2. The only people who care about the host issue are the Karens on Facebook who don't realize Trebek can't be brought back from the dead. Jeopardy generally gets higher ratings than Wheel- Using it as a stronger lead-in for NBC Primetime.
  3. Didn't that get rumored once and caused one of the infamous Kelly Ripa freak outs?
  4. Weather Center, but there would still be space for a small set. And with Brad Edwards reassigned to CBSN Chicago, they could put a small enough set in to give the OTT a different look from the traditional news set?
  5. And WCCO has made the switch https://www.cbsnews.com/minnesota/
  6. Cavuto has always been solid and tries to stick to what's worked for him for 25 years despite all the other changes at the network. It's clear that he likes his 2 hours at Fox Business better than FNC, but even the leftists here (and for the record, I dislike FNC, CNN, and MSNBC all equally) can respect that Neil has pushed back against former president Trump (We don't work for you) (Cutting away from a Trump speech to correct something said about Obama's record). I also appreciate lives with MS, survived cancer, and comes back from vacation to read emails from people hoping he died on air.
  7. KARE has switched to that. Also not sure when, but the TV panel wall behind the anchors is one big screen now as well
  8. I wouldn't hold my breath on Weather graphics... KSFY and KFYR use the same overall package KCRG switched to, but all three aforementioned stations are using the same wx graphics as of right now.
  9. WCCO did not go for "First Alert"... But say hello to "Next Weather"! https://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2022/04/21/what-is-next-weather/
  10. Doing your show from the nation's capital has some advantages... You main anchor stationed there when news breaks in America's largest city isn't one of them.
  11. How much $$$ did they have to give Edwards to take the demotion?
  12. I'm all for local ownership and that usually means a lower budget as a result- especially against Gray and Nexstar. They don't use just "KNBN", and try to differentiate themselves from "KOTA" and "KELO(land)" by using NC1- and that's probably good marketing. The pairings of graphics/logo/music just doesn't make a whole lot of sense.
  13. KNBN (Rapid City SD) appears to be in the process of implementing a new logo- Old one still appears on the website, but the new one appears on-air and on social media. I get it- Play button works great for OTT/streaming, NBC logo colors, Probably last in the ratings behind KOTA/KEVN and KELO so needs a change... What I don't get- How is this more effective than the NBC logo itself? Also the whole GooglePlay logo comparisons
  14. WCCO wins most time slots and demos in MN... Ratings discussions have the evidence.
  15. Could another reason Today and GMA are phasing out outside pieces is due to pre-recording interviews and segments?
  16. And with CBS right across the street doing more outside/Times Square stuff is important to re-establish dominance on the block Not that CBS has made effective use of their real estate outside of the first week of Gayle's relaunch...
  17. Lead In. We know that in major markets that CBS is not first with even local newscasts (we have data for Chicago, Minnesota, et al on another thread) We can assume that CBS is not winning in other major markets (NYC, LA, DFW, the list goes on) and that does not help. Even in markets where CBS does well with news (WCCO, for example says they have #1 from 5-7 Central) the viewer is a creature of habit- what stops them from switching to GMA or Today at 7am?CBS not only needs to provide quality programming but also burdened with providing such good programming that the viewer breaks their normal habits. Same sentiment translates to CBSEN.
  18. I could get on the Ann Curry train... She fits the CBS "straight news" mantra, and I was hoping she would have replaced Norah on the Gayle King Show. No chance she would likely overtake Lester Holt for the #2 spot, but nevertheless it would be a good chance to redeem herself for getting screwed over by Lauer on "Today". Even if she was the stop gap while a long-term host was groomed, it would transition nicely into a role at 60 Minutes.
  19. Speaking of changing anchors every few years, another problem with moving Tony to Evening News is yet another casting change to the Gayle King Show... What are the chances they give a former anchor another shot? Pelley? Glor?
  20. WBBM/CBS Chicago's website has a shiny new look that mimics the main CBSNews.com page. Huge emphasis on the CBS News Chicago branding- gotta look a little to see a CBS2 logo anywhere Edit: WCBS is rocking the new look as well
  21. CCO has had brags on air and on social about CBSN/News Minnesota's streaming numbers... No brag about weekday morning numbers this book though... KMSP surge in the AM?
  22. Coworker and I were talking about this yesterday (sorry I didn't think to post about this then). So- either FCC denies the KVRR sale and breaks up KVLY's duopoly (or would they be grandfathered in?) Or they allow the sale and the ownership rules are all out the door? That's how I feel this reads between the lines...
  23. I flipped over from the channel I was watching when I saw this thread (Again, issue that NN has is they aren't the first thought for things like this) Got to admit I think they have a better product than the major cable news players at the moment. Nexstar would be smart to simulcast on their broadcast stations overnight if possible.
  24. Update: Collin has landed a job in the Twin Cities reporting on the stories "she wasn't allowed to do in recent years at WCCO". https://www.startribune.com/former-wcco-tv-anchor-liz-collin-joins-conservative-site-alpha-news/600149396/
  25. A voiceover would improve the overall package a ton... Especially since CBS likes to stress that Norah is in "The Nation's Capital".
