  1. Nexstar Media to Launch Prime-Time National Newscast on WGN America, Cable Network Reaching 75 Million U.S. Households Nexstar Media Group’s cable network, WGN America will launch a live daily national newscast. Beginning this summer, “News Nation,” will air in prime-time and will draw on the expertise of Nexstar’s 5,400 local journalists in 110 local newsrooms across the country. https://www.nexstar.tv/press-releases/
  2. The list is out....Who is moving, and who is going away for good.... There are some shockers, but they will likely be around on someone else's channel... http://www.tvnewscheck.com/mobile/index/article/id/103237 So far, it looks like FOX is getting out of the duopoly business for the most part, and Nexstar AND Tribune is cashing in in some unlikely places.... As for KRON....Well, you'll just have to see for yourself! Lots of TBN, religious and public broadcasters cashing in too...
  3. Nexstar has officially announced this morning that it will acquire Tribune Media at a deal valued at $6.4B. Nexstar will acquire the outstanding shares of Tribune for $46.30 a share, valued at $6.4B. The $6.4B amount includes the assumption of Tribune's outstanding debt. Tribune shareholders could received an additional $0.30 a share, per month, if the deal doesn't close by August 31, 2019. The deal is subject to approval from Tribune shareholders. And aside from Nexstar spinning off divested stations to get the greenlight from regulators, Nexstar also said that it might also spin-off other assets "which it deems to be non-core".
  4. It appears that WREG in Memphis is preparing to get a new set in the coming weeks, with the current weather center and news desk both being moved to temporary locations as of this weekend. At this time, we do not know to what extent the studio renovations are being done, but according to Chief Meteorologist Tim Simpson via his Facebook page, the work has been going on behind the scenes for some time. It'll be interesting to see what the finished product looks like when you consider WREG has been in the same newsroom studio setup for roughly 23 years with some updates done along the way.
  5. As part of a settlement agreement worth $60m, Sinclair is selling WDKY Danville - Lexington to Nexstar and selling "non-license assets" of KGBT Harlingen - Brownsville - McAllen to an unknown buyer (but probably will be to a shell company of Sinclair). https://www.broadcastingcable.com/news/sinclair-pays-nexstar-60m-some-assets-to-settle-tribune-suit
  6. With the 1PM broadcast on 02/27/2020, KSWB-TV (Tribune > Nexstar) launched an updated logo & new opens (No more box kite), a new L3 (Similar to WJW, but not exact), a new bug, and new ticker (From the Nexstar NBC package), and new music "Beyond" by Stephen Arnold. This appears to be a minor update as most of the other on-screen graphics continue to use the Tribune Fox package. I thought this was a strange move considering the possible sell-off of the station to Fox.
  7. Nexstar Duopoly WBRE/WYOU in Wilkes-Barre has moved to a temporary set in the news room. "Exciting changes" are coming "in the next few weeks!"
  8. WJHL, the CBS and ABC-affiliated station in the Tri-Cities (Bristol, Kingsport, and Johnson City), recently debuted a new set this past Tuesday, and with it received new graphics that are much like the ones currently used at KOIN 6. Article: https://www.wjhl.com/news/local/wjhl-abc-tri-cities-debuts-new-studio-tuesday-at-5-p-m/ Update: In addition to new graphics, they have also dumped Canvas for Aerial.
  9. KWGN also launched weekend morning newscasts today. This is the first time they have had a weekend morning newscast since the mid 2000s. Channel 2 News @ 8AM & Channel 2 News @ 9AM.

    New graphics for KTAB in Abilene. They are using the CBS Nexstar package. Instead of orange, replace with red to go with logo. No new set. Sure KRBC is to follow with NBC Nexstar graphics package. https://youtu.be/GJlx3m6bHis
  11. Nexstar is bringing a new look to Northwest Arkansas and the River Valley! Tonight is the last night on the existing set that has been in place since 2012.
  12. I smell a relaunch coming to WJTV (and WHLT)..... This logo is being used on their twitter, and i've seen the square version on their Facebook, and on their set monitors.. Here's their Facebook header... I can occasionally get WHLT OTA (which is basically a repeater of WJTV's newscasts with Hattiesburg ads), and they are still on the CBS/Scripps-esque package still used by WNCT. The question is, will they get the KOLR/CBS look, or something different (hopefully not the mess WSPA has)... We shall see...
  13. Oh boy..... http://www.baltimoresun.com/business/bs-bz-sinclair-anti-trust-lawsuit-20180801-story.html I don't know why it was filed in Illinois, but Sinclair and Nexstar are (or were) owners whose stations carried their ads (most likely WPMI and WKRG) The other groups seem out of place, but they all own (or will soon own) stations in nearby New Orleans...
  14. Watching their 10pm show, and the anchor is clearly on a different set, with a duratrans featuring their current look, and a stone column on the right. It looks like they've re-tooled their interview set they use for sponsored segments. Their last upgrade was a little over 4 years ago, under prior ownership and news management. Given the market, it's a short lifespan for that set....WPMI and WALA's sets are over 6 years old and WEAR's set is almost a decade old (when they went HD in 2008 with their standard-issue Devlin set) The set was a little jarring at first, but it's grown on me over the years, since it was very out of left field given how Media General was upgrading their sets at the time. Here's hoping Nexstar doesn't cheap out, but some of their recent efforts are not bad....
  15. KSNT (Nexstar NBC) is finally getting a new studio after years and years of hand-me-downs. Their now old set was a hand-me-down from KSHB sometime after KSHB went HD in 2008. I kind of grew up watching KSNT so I'm a bit aware of its history. They did numerous refreshes to it through the years, but the basic structure was still there (the weather center remained virtually unchanged). To give you an idea of how old it was, KSNT's studio seemingly wasn't large enough for the full thing, so they had to (video from 2010). They went HD in 2012 and for the short-lived "Kansas First News" brand after they became a triopoly. Still little done to the weather center. Finally, sometime in late 2014 or early 2015 , this time replacing the main backdrop with large printed graphics and added a large 3x3 monitor array where the old stand up used to be. I'm excited to see what they get. Anything will be an improvement and worlds better than what WIBW currently has.
