Here's a small TV note: Lilly/SJL's WICU and WSEE in Erie, PA since having produced a joint newscast have also began ID'ing on-air both as simply "WICU" and "WSEE" with no channel number, at least like at the end of syndicated promos and common stuff.

So are they consolidating two newscasts into one or what exactly are they doing?

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

They already have under "Erie News NOW"

 

Hasn’t WSEE always branded by their call letters though? A god awful CBS eye logo with italicized SEE over the eye comes to mind.

Vinnie Politan - formerly of HLN - is leaving Atlanta's WXIA after four years. His last day at 11Alive is tomorrow (Thursday).

Thank God! That 11 pm experiment was awful. In a market like Atlanta, a traditional newscast works best especially in the evening.

The logos for both stations are now the generic NBC and CBS logos with the plain call letters next to it. Even more bland and worse than it was before.

For anyone wondering what their logos look like (didn't even take me a half-hour to make them, just to make a point)...

Even New Vision/LIN/MG/Nexstar's treatment of WKBN/WYTV look much better.

It was reported on TVNT and another news website that KSLA got rid of their Sunday morning newscasts. That's not true because I watched recently and they had it on. Just making sure y'all know.

So if KSLA is done with weekend mornings, that leaves KTBS as our only option of weekend AM news

KSNV sports anchor Randy Howe was arrested in North Las Vegas Tuesday on charges of indecent exposure and "open gross" lewdness. Howe was booked at the Las Vegas Detention Center, and was subsequently released on bail. KSNV representatives have so far declined comment on the matter.

So who is more prone to public lewdness?

The sports goons...or the weather geeks?

 

You would think some member here has this statistic handy.

Looks like he was playing with more than just the "one armed bandit"...Cops say he "whipped it out"...

One employee told two responding officers they'd seen Howe walking to the restroom with his penis exposed, police said. Other employees reportedly told police it wasn’t the first time they’d seen Howe masturbate at the bar, according to the report.

 

"Ewwwwww!"

(emphasis mine)

No more 9pm newscast on KLAS-TV Las Vegas. Their 8.2 subchannel reverted back to the MeTV lineup for the hour.

 

Let's see how many other local newscasts that were blatant political cash grabs get axed, though that one's pretty blatant...

*Cough* WUAB's 7:30pm newscast! *cough*

Yep. There wasn't much of a cash grab as commercial breaks consisted of in-house promos and PSAs. Plus it was an eyesore to watch in 16:9 480i.
