One could argue Ozark Trail makes a comparable tumbler cup for a third of the price. I own both and the difference is negligible.

 

I prefer Bubba Kegs. They stay cool or hot very long. Frequently ice will last over 24 hours.

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’m sorry DigitalProdJoey, but I just don’t see the humor in a man physically abusing his wife.

 

You're absolutely right, there is nothing funny about it nor is it a situation to make light of. However, we have expressed this in many threads before that Eat News isn't to be taken seriously. He makes jokes. He's entertaining. He's the comedic relief of this forum.

 

Look, I understand where you're coming from, but you shouldn't get so worked up over things you can't control.

Meanwhile, WNCN meteorologist Kristin Ketchell ends her fill-in time at WAVY. Ashley Baylor was on maternity leave and she'll return this week.

Oh my god. I didn't read the article about the incident. I thought this went off into random territory.

I'm getting back on-topic now...

 

WNVC and WNVT Channel 30 are scheduled to go off-air April 1st. MHz Worldview will remain on cable in D.C., but the OTA signals and the international news networks carried on the subchannels are scheduled to go off air as well.

WNVC and WNVT are going to be channel-sharing with WHTJ and WCVE, respectively.

How does a random catch all thread have a topic?

In other words, no longer airing in D.C. but in Richmond and in Charlottesville maybe? Because MHz Networks said that they'll no longer be available to the D.C. market.

I don't mean to sound stupid but I didn't know that people could fill in at other stations while working at one.

Last year when WCAU was down to three meteorologists and of the three one was on vacation and a second was sick, they pulled in WRC’s Doug Kammerer and WNBC’s Dave Price to fill in.

Crazy! Someone managed somehow, some way to briefly interrupt a newscast on KRIS/Corpus Christi last night. The screen went black, then you can hear some dude say, 'F--- it. Lick it. Smell it.' The anchor managed to recover and apologize faster than you'd expect in a market that size. No explanation yet.

WJLA meteorologist Josh Knight helped out WBFF about a year or so ago in their time of need. Not to mention, the occasional fill-in WX gigs during network morning shows, they usually poach from the O&O's. Similar thing happened when Paul Magers did an impromptu SR when Muhammad Ali passed.

 

Unrelated but while I'm thinking of it, are network O&O's basically considered de-facto bureaus for their parent network? Not talking about NYC, DC, Chicago, or LA, but say Raleigh for WTVD/ABC, Austin for KTBC/FOX, etc?

An important thing to note here is that all of these stations are owned by the same company. They're not pulling a meteorologist from a Scripps station to fill in from a Hearst station, they're pulling people from within the company but who are at different stations.

The short answer is yes, although in most some top markets, the networks will still operate a de-facto separate operation for true network level correspondents.

 

The example that comes to mind is in Miami, where NBC has an O&O in WTVJ, but still operates a separate NBC News Miami Bureau.

Worth noting that despite the brand new Telemundo Center Headquarters the NBC Network Bureau will remain in their current location. They are in some non descript office building.

It usually happens with stations under common ownershp. WNBC has pulled staff from WVIT (Hartford) and WCAU (Philadelphia) over the years. WNBC staff has filled in on the others as well. Years ago, one of the NBC Miami staff worked at WNBC while his wife was in grad school, then returned to WTVJ.

One interesting case was WNBC pulled recently (and several times) WRC’s helicopter reporter.

Meredith is apparently selling Time, Fortune, SI, and laying off 1,200 employees in the process. I am posting this as they've been rumored to be in the running to purchase station in the Sinclair-Tribune divestiture, should the transaction obtain final approval from Washington.

Didn't the Koch Brothers give Meredith a huge boat load of $$$ for them to purchase Time?
