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

It appears WZDX will launch soon. 
They’re now using the weather graphics on their website. 

Here’s a video from last week showing the new weather graphics. Seems like they started using them on Friday.

This is a nightmare!!!! 😑

 

That's why Annette Peagler said this was a soft launch tonight. They're still fine tuning some things.

That open is absolutely ridiculous.  The logo outline is very unsightly.

 

And the L3 font is ridiculous, even by the standards of this graphics pkg.  

I’m sorry Ryan but the standard font is so much better than Arial that’s being used. It’s a soft launch meaning a test.

Since my thoughts here were moved to the other thread, it looks like the WATN font issue was simply forgetting to load the correct font into the CG.   It seems to happen a lot these days.   And yet there are stations like WFMJ who have yet to fix the issue (or even care).

Well color me surprised...... This is 2009-2010 all over again.....

 

There's TWO Notice of Proposed Rulemakings (NPRM) involving two Tegna stations. They both want to get out of the VHF dial for a UHF allotment.

 

One, Portland, OR's KGW wants to leave VHF 8 for UHF 26. While the other, Phoenix's KPNX wants to vacate VHF 12 for UHF 18.

 

And I don't think they just want to get out of VHF because of viewer signal issues. On a footnote on KGW's NPRM (p.2), it stated based on the petition (PRM) they wrote that “moving to UHF would improve the station’s future ability to offer robust ATSC 3.0 service over the air.

Follow up. Over the summer, Tegna filed a petition (PRM) to move Twin Cities' KARE 11 from VHF 11 to UHF 31

 

Northpine first posted this back in late July. 

 

Update: KARE's petition is now a NPRM.

I'll bet that Atlanta could be in the future once 3.0 takes hold.  When Atlanta gets 3.0, at least Tegna has WATL 36 which is on UHF.  WXIA is on VHF 10.

 

The VHF problem could by why Meredith held off on 3.0 in Nashville and Mobile/Pensacola, as both of their stations are not part of a duopoly and both on VHF.
