  1. What is the deal between cw and acc? Did NBC try to get a deal with this conference? I would assume they would attempt to because they're trying to build peacock as a destination for sports programming or at least put the games on USA network. Also, how did the cw get the bowl game? Did NBC make a bid on it to try to put it on peacock or usa?
  2. I wonder if the stations will add a weekend morning newscast?
  3. I heard something happened to Rick Dickert? I hope he's OK. When did KTTV and KCOP management decide that they wanted bring back news to KCOP?
  4. What happened to Tony Shin? His bio is not on the stations website anymore.
  5. Annabelle Sedano first day on the job was today. I saw her anchor the 3pm newscast, but I did not see her at 5pm, as Carolyn Johnson co-anchored the newscast with Colleen Williams. Does anyone know why wasn't Annabelle anchoring the 5pm news with Colleen?
  6. Why does NBC still put sports on CNBC weekend? Why not just move these events to peacock? I think they should use CNBC as an overflow network in case there's conflict in programming on USA OR NBC.
  7. ESPN has the major 4 sports leagues - NFL, NBA, MLB, & NHL, plus college sports. Is this the first time that one network has all of the major sports in recent years?
  8. Why doesn't NBCLA have an anchor who is of Asian background? Ted Chen used to be an anchor on the weekend morning news, but that was years ago.
  9. I am assuming that Alissa will take some time off since she fainted. Who will fill in for her? Why did Mary leave kttv? I think she's better suited for Ktla or Knbc.
  10. What was the reason for Tuck and Magers leaving the station?
  11. Why do they do that by having 2 weathercasters split the weekdays duties in the mid afternoon? Why does a station need 5 permanent weathercasters? I remember a while back, all KNBC had was Christopher Nance doing the morning newscasts weather and Fritz Coleman doing the evening newscast. On the weekends, they would have one of the co anchors reading the weather report with the weather maps on the screen. A few years later, Paul Johnson was asked to work 7 days a week, m - f doing traffic, and on the weekends the weather. I can understand the station having 4 weather casters, but not 5. If one of the 4 calls in sick, they can have a temp fill in. Or they can have one of the other 3 fill in for the person that called in sick.
  12. What is the TV audience of the 7pm newscasts?
  13. Why doesn't NBC put all of its sports coverage that is on cable on the USA Network, instead of splitting it up. Ex would be rugby on CNBC and some figure skating coverage on E! Channel. Why not combine all of the coverage and put it on the USA Network and use CNBC as an overflow or secondary channel if needed?
  14. When will NBC decide and announce what their plans are for the 10pm hour?
  15. Why didn't NBC want to air college basketball since they don't have as much sports programming as they used to with the loss of NHL? It is strange that they have had channels like USA, CNBC, and Bravo, but they were not willing to pay to air sports on these networks in the past, before peacock and streaming became popular.
  16. Her bio states that Sedano used to work for Univision in Los Angeles at KMEX 34. Will NBCLA have her anchor at Telemundo KVEA 52 in the future as well? If the anchors and reporters are bilingual, why not utilize that and have them report for both stations. That will help with their budget.
  17. Why did NBC not want to put some games on the USA network? I know their priority is peacock, but not even one college football game and no college basketball games at all. I thought they wanted to build the USA network with sports programming as well.
  18. What happened to the local sports business? Why would Sinclair buy the networks from Disney if they were going to be bankrupt? On the national level, MLB, NHL, and the NBA are making so much money from their TV deals. Why on the local level the networks are not?
  19. Why didn't they promote Robert Kovacik to the 3 and 5pm newscast? I think when his contract is up, he'll be leaving the station. I thought either Kovacik or Brownlee were next in line to be promoted.
  20. There are many programs out there on many different networks, cable networks, digi-networks, and streaming services. It's a matter of what standards you are talking about. At what level is the audience level too low to produce programs at a certain time? I believe that the audience for network TV and every other platform will become so fragmented that they should continue to produce or maintain programming at certain hours, especially the 10pm slot.
  21. Will the network evening newscast expand to 1 hour on a regular basis? I don't believe they will in the near future because they're investing in other news programs for their online and streaming news sites. Maybe in a few years when the networks are in desperate need of more programming, they will put 1 hour editions of the evening news.
  22. Who has been filling in for the station now that Fred Roggin left the station? Mario does the weekday sports segments. Who does the weekend sports segments?
  23. The ratings are already low on these nights. The networks have tried many different types of programming on these two nights and have not been successful. Even if the ratings are geared towards older viewers, if the older viewers tune in, and if they can attract other viewers in addition to the older viewers, the total viewers might be more than whatever they're getting now. Isn't the main goal of the networks is to get as many viewers to watch the programs that they put on the air? I understand it is also about making profit off of the programming. This might be a way to argue that they can attract more viewers with the classic programs that put on the air.
  24. What if NBC puts all of its film and TV shows on Peacock tv from its film and TV studios? That would boost subscribers for peacock. From Universal films, tv, and etc. Then all they need to do is add more sports.
