Do not hold out hope for Move Closer To Your World sticking around. Tegna (then Gannet) shattered my dreams when it ripped the Spirit Of Texas out from under WFAA for no good reason at all.   T

You'll have to forgive Eat News.  He and Regis have a bit of a history with each other.     Every since the vicious taunting, Eat News sees Regis everywhere and this causes him to

Really? What gave you that idea?

 

Oh, I don't know. My guess is, based on my interpretation of your response to the fact that Ms. Barrett will be working in Charlotte, either you: a. are not a fan of the decisions she made at KDVR/KWGN, b. met her once and she kind of rubbed you the wrong way, or c. worked under her and were driven bananas by her.

 

That's just my interpretation; I guess I should have thought first before I posted my response....

I'd like to buy a vowel.....

 

Maybe Tegna is saving money by cutting them out....

 

Oh wait....

 

I mean, they save $1250 across the 2 real phrases and my made up one. All 5 vowels are represented. It's the rules. 🤣

When you multiply that saving across hundreds of WRDS, not to mention the cheap talent, inbred programming, and god willing, the coffee (or lack thereof) and ply of the TP....

WOI also has the latest version of the Tegna websites and app that are slowly rolling out... 

 

Looks like when the Tegna graphics debut, the open will feature We Are Iowa (at least from what is seen in the app when it opens)

WOI launched their TEGNA app and website today along with what appears to be a new "Local 5" logo (below the Hourly weather)...

2 different WOI-5 logos in 5 years. Wow.

Idk if this has been covered here yet, but Thanh Truong is leaving WWL but he plans to stay put in New Orleans. His final day was today. He is going to launch a True Crime podcast with his wife. 

Didn't he JUST move to the Noon newscast not too long ago from the later shows??

Not surprised he's leaving. He effectively got demoted. He was a very strong evening anchor. Disappointed he wont be showing up on New Orleans TV at the moment.

Via TVNewsCheck:

 

KING 5 is moving Angela Poe Russell from "Take 5" to "Evening" however the changes don't end there.

 

Starting next Monday "Take 5" will be replaced in the 4pm slot with a new newscast anchored by Greg Copeland and Jessica Janner Castro

 

Not entirely sure if "Take 5" will remain on air or if they're just moving to a different timeslot.

Just by looking at TV listings for next week, it looks like Take 5 goes away entirely.

That's so dumb. People actually liked Take 5. Their ratings were growing so it makes no sense to cancel it. Just put someone in Angela's place. Problem solved.

WZDX Fox in Huntsville made the switch to the new website layout today and kept its, rocketcitynow.com address. This means, as far as I know, WATN in Memphis is the only one of the Nexstar purchase stations that still has not made the switch. I am sure it will be any day now.
