I think they should promote Kate Amara, demote Andre Hepkins, hire new male and female anchor, add 4pm news, expand noon news to an hour, and morning news to 4am.

Well that’s a lot. A few of their shows are inked in for a while like Ellen and Steve. Kate Amara did the arching jo for a while she launched the 10PM newscasts before doing a few years in the DC bureaux. She returned to WBAL and I think is happy at being their lead political reporter.

 

One show they could drop would be Access Live if they want to do a 4PM. It’s been used for years as a filler show.

 

Also WBAL still doesn’t clear the fourth third hour (Megyn Kelly is considered seperate) of Today. The shows preempted in the morning for Live with Kelly and Ryan and at night with Access Live.

And the new facility is literally down the street from down the current Fayetteville studio in the Northwest Arkansas Mall.

 

When Hearst moved into the Rogers facility they tried continuing broadcasting from Fort Smith and Rogers (once they moved out of the Fayetteville space), but that did not last long. I figure Tribune will phase out newscasts from Fort Smith once the new facility is complete and staff can get moved to the area.

I'm surprised that with NW Arkansas being a split market, I'm surprised that no station has pulled a WSAZ and do two-city news.

As P.B. Media mentioned, KHBS/KHOG used to...the practice went back to at least the 80s going by the voiceover copy in their opens.

As for the second, it is just the WLWC license. The station has been dark and CW programming moved to a subchannel on Nexstar's WPRI 12 (CBS) and WNAC 64 (Fox).

 

WLWC is carrying Ion Life.

Shocking news coming out of El Paso tonight as KVIA anchor Rick Cabrera announced on the radio he'll be leaving the station. The report from the Las Cruces Sun-News is here.

KITV in Hawaii is having some twitter trouble. I noticed yesterday that many of their tweets just link directly to an AP article with text in the tweet saying it’s copyrighted.

Edit In case they delete it here’s how it appeared:

That looks soooooo much better than the logo they have now.

 

The shot of the new logo reminds me a little of the mid-1990s logo (a close 2nd to the Corinthian Broadcasting era logo it replaced as my favorites for the station)

...and here’s another example of 40/29

 

Did I see correctly that the DMA runs all the way from southwest Missouri to the Oklahoma/Texas line? I know that there's no big city between OKC/Tulsa and Texarkana/Shreveport, but that seems like a very long distance.

According to this map I found, it doesn't quite get to the TX line; McCurtain Co., OK and the SW counties of AR that border TX are part of Shreveport-Texarkana.

Sad news on this President's Day. Roy Hobbs, anchored in markets from Boston to Birmingham and spent 7 years at WAGA (FOX) in Atlanta has passed away. Hobbs most recently anchored for WRDE in the Delmarva Peninsula. Before that, Hobbs anchored at WBMA (ABC) from 2006-10, Hobbs anchored at WAGA from 1996-03 as the anchor for the 5PM news. He came to Atalanta from Boston where he was an anchor at NECN and WSBK from 1991-96. Hobbs got his start in TG at WTVF in Nashville.

 

Roy Hobbs was 64. Prayers and condolences goes out to the family of Roy Hobbs.

Telemundo is on SiriusXM.

 

Yes, the first television network to be available on satellite radio.

 

First before ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, The CW and even Univision and UniMas.

 

Telemundo is available on Channel 469 and does air all of Telemundo's programs and sports events.

I have attached this map of Arkansas showing each county in relation to their DMA. There are 7 DMAs within The Natural State and are as follows:

 

Purple: Memphis - DMA 50

Magenta: Little Rock - DMA 58

Brown: Springfield, MO - DMA 75

Green: Texarkana - DMA 83

Blue: Fort Smith - DMA 98

Pink: El Dorado - DMA 137

Red: Jonesboro - DMA 182

 

As for the Fort Smith DMA, in addition to the Arkansas Counties, it does spill over into Le Flore & Sequoyah Counties in Oklahoma. As a matter of fact, KHBS' stick is located near Poteau, Oklahoma.

Has no one mentioned KCCI meteorologist Frank Scaglione apparently soliciting minors? He's no longer employees, and it sounds like management isn't telling their employees much either. https://www.desmoinesregister.com/story/news/crime-and-courts/2018/02/19/kcci-tv-des-moines-meteorologist-accused-inappropriate-behavior-snapchat-twitter-frank-scaglione/350171002/

Way to chase that younger demo...

 

What is it with these twinks lately?

I'm shocked at how KCCI has essentially ignored this story, just hoping it goes away. The local paper did a fairly lengthy story. The Nexstar station in the market did one, too. It's gone viral, Hearst. Might wanna do something before your reputation takes a bigger hit than it already has.
