So I guess you'll regard Super Bowl 54 as Super Bowl 53, and you'll have Pittsburgh as the only team who have won 6 Super Bowls.

 

Exactly.

As of the first of the year Scripps grounded WTMJ’s news chopper. That makes WISN the last remaining station in Milwaukee with a chopper. #chopper4withpowerzoom

There were rumors of a few years ago of a chopper share between WTMJ and WISN that would have gotten them both (and possibly WITI and WDJT if they wanted to buy in) a HD chopper... Hopefully that avenue is explored again.

There were rumors in 2017 that he was going to be replaced by Mark Rivera, who ended up leaving for WLS. 

 

As for the situation with the attorney, I don't know what to think. It seems a bit unethical. At any rate, I am sad to see him go. In some of the candid facebook stuff they used to do in the studio, Reggie seemed like a serious news guy. He had a good run.

Ex-reporter Lisa Benson's discrimination lawsuit against KSHB went to the jury today. So far no verdict...

A meteor has hit Venezuela...and nothing yet from CNN ...or anyone else.

 

 

Not even the BBC. That's impressive.

No legitimate news sources have covered it.  A meteorite hits land fairly often and unless it’s a large size, like in Russia that blasted out windows, it probably isn’t news worthy. Ontop or the crisis in Venezuela news crews are likely to avoid the country for their safety or stay in urban areas.

I was not aware the legitimacy of the story was ever in question.

 

Citizens and  regular people ARE legit news sources. They are the most organic of sources as they are the first witness...not some "unnamed source".

 

Is that why NBC,FOX,CNN and all the others are not covering it? 

Is somebody or some agency calling this fake?

 

I think any time flaming rocks fall from space causing fires on the ground...and children to run in terror it's considered "newsworthy".

 

EDIT: Snip....

 

In the end....@rkolsen was right...nobody cared except the poor Venezuelans who had the hunger scared out of them. Amazing the US networks completely ignored it...not that we really need to be reminded that flaming stuff from space can wipe us all out real quick.

Do we really think FOX13 going to pick up a 60 something-year-old? Plus their anchor bench is tight.

This opens up an alternate scenario for the WHDT purchase. They make WHDT a new Court TV affiliate and they instantly get clearance in West Palm Beach, Miami, and Boston in one fell swoop. Or it could be a complete coincidence and they just toss a bunch of syndicated shows on it.

 

Scripps is only taking the full-power station in Stuart. They're not acquiring the LP repeater in MIami, nor the station in Boston.

 

Anywho, the FCC just greenlighted the deal.

Do any of the local stations have room for him?

KCDO (K3 Sterling - Denver) has just started to repeat some of KMGH's newscasts, most notable the weekday 6:00 (at 9:00 a.m.), 11:00 a.m. (at 1:00 p.m.), one of the weekend morning hours (10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Saturdays and 10:00-11:00 a.m. Sundays), weekend 5:00 p.m. (at 7:00 p.m.) and nightly 10:00 p.m. (at 11:00 p.m.).

Sorry this is a bit late, but they’ve been doing this on and off in recent times (IIRC, they did it about a year ago, the stopped). The also rebroadcast KGWN.2’s Northern Colorado News 5 (from the folks in Little Rock) years ago.

A full 5 months after the driver of a pickup decided to ram into the side of the building at KDFW in downtown Dallas, the impact spots have had nothing but the plywood treatment.  No word on what will be done, nor any new stories about the man.

While it may have been ethically questionable -- reporters using their connections is something that happens all the time. I can't imagine his friendship with the lawyer is something WTSP didn't know until now. Seems to me like Tegna, which has a notorious distaste for over-50s, was looking for a reason to can him and the newspaper article was it.

 

Is anyone over 50 even left there anymore?
