Here it is, screenshots of Linda Cavanaugh's final newscast at KFOR.2081053529_2017-12-15(50).thumb.png.51d04541fb0a04bc5673a2a488134bc3.png

 

You can watch LInda's final thought here - http://kfor.com/2017/12/15/linda-cavanaugh-says-goodbye-to-kfor-family-and-yours/

 

Now as Linda heads off into retirement, what's next for KFOR as the Sinclair/Tribune merger continues to unfold?

 

Just another thought, the following KFOR on air personalities have been with the station since before the turn of the century:

 

Tara Blume - 1991

Brian Brinkley - 1990

Galen Culver - c. 1991

Ali Meyer - 2000

Mike Morgan - 1993

Kevin Ogle - 1993

Kent Ogle - 1993

Sarah Stewart - 1999

Lance West - 1995

 

I do not have any reason seeing any of the following leaving KFOR anytime soon, personally, I'm just hoping that they can decide their future on their terms and not those of the heavens in Hunt Valley.

I worked with a news anchor who battled an alcohol addiction. It's not just about someone having too much fun and getting carried away, there sometimes are much deeper issues we don't know about. My c

KLUJ off the air?

 

I just saw on the FCC LMS that KLUJ has turned in its license for cancellation. Why did they do it? Are they off the air now? Is there an official statement from TBN?

Like with all of this, cable/sat coverage is good enough, and their TV/phone app is more than acceptable now. They cheaped out on their digital transmitters and they're paying for it now; Ion can run five signals and an HD easily. TBN can barely fit five subs on their multiplexers, and upgrades aren't coming to them. Maybe the Crouches should have put off that eighth house and fourth jet purchase in the mid-2000s.

 

RabbitEars is saying at least one TBN station has gone HD, can't remember which one.

Freelancer Television Broadcasting, Inc. has finished its purchase of WLLZ-LP Cedar, MI.

 

It was announced today that FTB would be changing WLLZ's call sign to...

WXII-LP

 

Todo, I don't think we're in Greensboro, High Point, or Winston-Salem anymore.

 

Hello everyone,

 

We just received word from the FCC that they have granted our request to change the call sign of WLLZ-LP to WXII-LP.

 

The change is effective this Thursday (December 21, 2017); please update your records accordingly! Aside from the call sign, nothing else about the station has changed - the program schedules, coverage area and COZI/MyNetworkTV affiliations remain the same as they’ve been in the past.

Oh great. WXII in the Piedmont Triad, WXII in Northern Michigan. How fun.

 

What did northern Michigan's WXII call sign mean?

This is normal. They anchor from the newsroom just for the 4am half-hour.

 

Thanks. I guess the crew, staff aren’t there or it’s some union issue. It looks like there have been no live reports.

Most your morning crews show up in the 3:30-4am range for live hits beginning at 5am. 99.9% of the stations in the US do not staff camera/reporters after midnight till 3:30a.

 

There are a few exceptions such as KGTV and KFMB in San Diego which staff cameras overnight.

 

Otherwise it's the stringers...which can be a major pain in the ass for morning show producers with constant annoying calls about selling dumpster fires and senseless drunk driving crashes....all while copping major attitude if you "pass" on the crappy shaky video.

 

Here's to the morning show producers who have the most thankless job in the world.

 

God bless you guys and Merry Christmas...if that's how you roll.

Say hello to either Gannett, Scripps, Sinclair, or even Fox handing Angley a Brinks truck of cash!

 

Raycom could even pull the old "failed station waiver" or even walk away from WUAB's license and make WBNX their second station. Then again, they ruined WUAB to begin with.

 

It will be interesting to see if Sinclair follows through with WJW. This could be a power play to keep Tegna or Scripps from competing directly with them.

The "failed station waiver" for a company like Raycom is as bad as able bodied people parking in the blue zone .

Spend some money now you got a tax break...and shore up some of this smaller run down stuff for these smaller and outlaying communities.
