  1. @newsanchor26 mentioned it in the shoutbox, but WBFF debuted new graphics today. Could this be the new Sinclair package? [attachment=4622:name] [attachment=4623:name] [attachment=4624:name]
  2. It's official: The Yankees have reportedly teamed up with Amazon, Sinclair, and others and are buying back YES Network from Disney for nearly 3 and a half billion dollars ($3.47 Billion to be exact)
  3. 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...
  4. Most of the talk about the Sinclair-Tribune marriage has been on the conflicts in St. Louis and Oklahoma City, as well Sinclair's "programming", but theres one subject that's been overlooked in the merger talks, Antenna TV, Tribune's classic TV network. What would Sinclair do with that network? Would they shut and down and replace it with their long gestating Fox News rival? Not likely, but they might force stations in their markets already airing Antenna TV to give it up to one of their stations. They may also close down one of their already existing networks (TBD seems like the most expendable, since it's literally only internet videos) and use its slot on their current stations to expand Antenna TV's reach. So tell me, what would Sinclair possibly do with Antenna TV? Let me hear your answers. And Mr. Weeters, if this is more of a Speculatron post, go ahead and put it on there.
  5. With Nexstar taking what stations they had (KLAS plus some, but not all, ex-Media General) off of NewsON, I wonder which groups are calling the shots at this point. As originally constructed, the groups that initially partnered to make it were ABC, Cox, Hearst, Media General, and Raycom. Between initial announcement and launch, Hubbard joined in. Under this setup, one would think that Nexstar inherited a stake in NewsON when they bought Media General and that if they retained it they would be wasting a prime opportunity to grow streaming rather than regress. I wonder if Nexstar shedded their share at some point, probably to Sinclair or even ex-MG suitor Meredith given their bullish use of the platform to date. Just some open wondering given recent events.
  6. Even ahead of the Sinclair buyout this reband looks terrible! Back to the Fox Box and to the TribWest Fox package. Additionally, the CSD can't hold a coherent theme. He switches between the KDVR custom package and Locals Only (which should be confined to KWGN). Furthermore, the horrid KWGN graphics package is staying, for some reason. Kelly Donnell is not original in his work and is tanking both stations with his lack of understanding how brand power works and how Denver and the traditional Fox look don't mesh. Joan Barrett (the GM) hired this corporate subservient and all we can do is watch (or not) in horror. Since the Nielsen boxes are in Denver City/County only, I predict a ratings slide.
