Georgie56 2697 Posted May 5, 2018 Share Posted May 5, 2018 KFMB/Tegna appears to have enabled WHOIS privacy on their KFMB.TV domain (They did on 03/05/2018). I have checked a few Tegna stations, and they all have WHOIS privacy enabled. Yet, they have not done that for any of the other domains, including CBS8.com. That leads me down three trains of thought: 1. They're going to rebrand as KFMB, dropping the (CBS) News 8 brand (Matching other Tegna stations using their call letters). Also, doing so would tie in the Radio stations as they both use some variant of KFMB. (AM 760 KFMB, 100.7 KFM-BFM). The rebrand would also help eliminate the channel number in the name, as 8.2 (CW) is on channel 6 on cable providers. Very confusing to have News8 on Channel 6. If I'm right, somebody owes me a beer. or 2. They just started updating the registration for the sites, and will finish updating them at some point or 3. It means nothing Here's the link to the WHOIS record: https://www.godaddy.com/whois/results.aspx?domain=kfmb.tv Obvious prediction alert: the logo will be KFMB(cbs) and they’ll rebrand as KFMB News. Just like KVUE. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
