Scripps - General Discussion

Message added by Weeters,

Thread Note: Since Scripps has indicated they intend to run ION Media as a separate entity from their existing (mostly) news-producing stations, ION discussion has been relocated to a new thread.

 I haven't been to WPB for several years.  Is this observation during this holiday period where many reporters take time off or during the past year?  It is a shame to hear about it.

To expand on what I was saying,  the package production is not bad at all, especially the reporters stand up in the WPTV video. They have a more corporate PR produced feel, to them, different from a standard fast following newscast package. These feel like short digital documentaries, especially because of their slower tone and camera angles. hard to explain, idk if you see similar things.

Dish has dropped KASW. I can only assume this is because Scripps wanted higher retrans fees for the station now that they carry Coyotes games and Dish told them to take a hike.

This really flew under the radar...

 

Apparently, Florida 24 Network is no more as of this month. (according to the Logopedia pages for them and WHDT)

 

Also, florida24network.com now redirects to the Scripps News website.

 

 

They are now know as "South Florida's 9"

This may have been mentioned already but I haven’t seen it before… KMTV has a nice evolution on the Scripps package (7:12 into this clip montage)

 

 

Are other stations using this look?

I am from the Omaha area, but I only watch KMTV for gameshows and sports occasionally.. so I haven’t noticed this much lol.

Much to the surprise of absolutely no one. I'm not too sure what they were thinking with that one.

Trying to justify the purchase of what was an HD-era experimental channel otherwise bound for HC2 irrelevancy. The entire WHDT purchase made no sense from the start at all; sure, you get an overflow station, but what else can you do with that station outside guaranteeing full coverage for your subnets? The CW isn't moving, you've got WFLX and Fox already via sidecar, and the Ion flagship is just as sidecarred. I wouldn't be surprised if the purchase came with a Mar-a-Lago membership a la WLNY.
