You're right. History will show WPIX was so much better under Tribune. PIX never looked better than when they were broadcasting their 10PM from this messy corner of the newsroom.  😍🏆💯  

Just wait till the Scripps people meet those huge rats...and I mean the furry ones...NOT the union ones.       *No disrespect to union furry's.

WPIX starting one hour sports program starting 11PM Sunday - WPIX Sports Nation 

 

I noticed the promo this past weekend.  I suspect Nexstar is going to be pushing the Nation and News Nation branding on their stations going forward hoping (wrongly) it will get a few people to even notice NewsNation.   Is NewsNation NY in the future?

A bureau? Yes. A local program or subchannel called NewsNation Local? Probably at some point, yes.

No I can see Nexstar branding local newscasts with the NewsNation name and city if they think it can draw viewers.  I hope not, but I would not put it past them considering the investment for all 67,000 viewers.

I’m actually surprised Nexstar doesn’t have a nightly program across the state, now that they have an affiliate in every market. Empire State Weekly (from WTEN) airs on the weekends across NY.

 

A 5:30 show called Empire State Tonight would seem logical on all NY Nexstar stations.

I don't see that happening. It works in a small state like West Virginia but not in a big state like New York.

New York is too different from region to region for one statewide newscast to find traction. Upstate people hate downstate people; the (NYC) northern suburbs don’t care about anything or anyone other than Metro North; Long Islanders are too busy being stuck in traffic; and everyone hates Staten Island.

 

I think the solution for WPIX is to move out of Midtown East, and move to Queens. Then, build a newscast and image that is New York City, other than Manhattan. Forget Manhattan news. Concentrate on the other four boroughs and their 7,000,000 residents. 
 

It’s harder to do, and requires some real outside the box work. But it would give New York something it doesn’t have: a newscast that resembles and reflects New York.

I can see something like this happening with News 12.. they seem to be trying to “up” their image and they have already launched News12 New York online.. 

seems like they’re lighter stories right now but they’re pulled from each News12 station.. it’s kind of interesting to wonder if it’ll develop more and make it to tv.

I like that outer borough centric approach. But instead of Queens, I'd say move to Brooklyn which seems to be the second epicenter of the city now.

 

The older WPIX had a more urban appeal maybe they can bring that vibe back. ( Fox 5 sort of has that going for them with Lisa Evers and Street soldiers). Perhaps they could attempt a WSVN tabloid hard-boiled type newscast to set themselves apart from the other stations. Was always curious how that approach might work in New York.
