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

 

Would it be Angley who sells the station, or the creditors initiating the foreclosure?

 

Because while Angley is 96 years old, I can’t see him selling WBNX unless he’s simply ordered to against his will. (To wit, he simply closed down the adjacent Cathedral Buffet after the initial harassment/abuse issues against him became public.) That station has been his lifeline in more ways than one.

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

I hope he signs the station over to his bed pan nurse, and it gets tied up in a sexy lurid probate court case.

 

Anyone hear from Donald Sterling lately?

I fully expect the creditors to flip the station should they gain control. Every owner in the Cleveland market is in "buy" mode and aside from WJW and maybe WOIO and "WUAB", this station is the perfect opportunity to expand their news product on to....and why WJW would want to buy them to keep that from happening.

Ya know, had this all come down in the early 1980s, Ernest could have gotten a job as an auto mechanic to make ends meet.

 

Edit: I think I found an advance copy for the final "90 and 9 Club!" XD

Out here in Albany, WNYT’s morning anchor Phil Bayly retired after a 42-year career, 31 years at the station, as well as 15 years anchoring mornings. I grew up watching Phil and even visited him in the newsroom once. He will surely be missed. Here’s his final newscast snippet:

The next few years are going to be interesting for WNYT. Most of their old guard is reaching retirement age and their bench is a bit thin. For a station that is the epitome of stable, it will be interesting to see how they proceed.

 

Come to think of it, this is the first time WNYT has dealt with an actual, planned retirement ever. Ed Dague had health reasons and a six-month saga full of drama, Bob McNamara had his hissy fit over bowling scores and resigned, Hubbard cuts ended Capital Region Backroads and Steve Scoville's career. Sure, there were people who left for bigger things (Chris Kapostasy/Jansing the biggest) or went to the next realm (Norm Sebastian), but this new ground will soon become familiar ground.

Only two public television stations that I can think of offer 24-hour weather coverage. KTCA is one of them and since September, they've rebranded their 24-hour weather channel as "TPT NOW" and if you ask me... the new look is really good.

Not worth a thread but here’s WBAL’s 70th logo. They’re running a promo of their news and event coverage filled with archive photos and logos. They were founded on May 1946 and signed on March 11, 1948.

MPTV/Milwaukee really needs to license this system. They're still on the Accuweather platform that's aged horribly as time has gone on. TCT has always done an incredible job with their weather coverage, be it as a part-day KTCI service or as a full-scale channel.

Truly sad news out of Buffalo Irv Weinstein has passed away at the age of 87 from ALS.

Farewell to one of the broadcast icons of Western New York (though to be honest, I thought he had passed away before now and didn't know he was suffering from ALS)

That does look good. The Weather Channel should have done something similar instead of the Windows 8 look.
