While it may have been ethically questionable -- reporters using their connections is something that happens all the time. I can't imagine his friendship with the lawyer is something WTSP didn't know until now. Seems to me like Tegna, which has a notorious distaste for over-50s, was looking for a reason to can him and the newspaper article was it.

 

Is anyone over 50 even left there anymore?

 

 

Kathryn Bursch, probably. But she's more of a community affairs person.

Canadian parliament broadcasts got some new graphics

 

 

 

Little bit more intrusive but definitely doesn't feel like an upscale relic of the early 2000's now.

This could've fit better on International Out and About.

Sure would be nice to have her back in Boston - Channel 7 is slowly imploding.

Who?

 

This is a station that used to have recognizable names. They had that main anchor who replaced Dennis Bounds that lasted like a year and a half. Revolving door. Who's still left there?

Sorry bad move, their NBC O&O in Boston needs to end local news due to negative reviews. I’ll ask someone to resolve the conflict

At this point I wouldn’t be surprised if Ed Ansin put some weird thing in the Trust for WHDH/WLVI and WSVN prohibiting their station from ever affiliating with or being purchased by NBC or any form of it in the future.  You know like The 700 Club airing on ABC Family years after numerous ownership changes.

The 700 Club thing is just a perpetually valid contract. Disney offered CBN a year's worth of the money they get from airing the show and its semi-annual telethons to buy it out, but Pat declined.

Wow, you’re not the sharpest tool in the tool shed, are you?

 

NBC is not shuttering NBC Boston’s news department. Period.

 

Lemme explain to you why NBC is going to continue running newscasts despite “negative reviews.” MONEY!  As long as NBC Boston can sell ad rates at a decent amount and turn a profit, then ratings won't matter as much as you think. This is also why stations have slowly begun to phase out syndicated programming in daytime — they can keep all the revenue in-house rather than sharing it with syndicators. 

 

You sound like Mardek’s cousin from Philadelphia who seems to think that shuttering a news department fixes its problems.

Let’s remember having news drives viewers.  Look at WWJ in Detroit, they don’t do news and it’s an after thought.

CBS makes a bit of money with WWJ, seeing as they can run it as a simple pass-through. If they hadn’t been turning some sort of a profit, CBS would have unloaded it long ago and wiped their hands of that mess... :)

Oh thanks for the input, my mind was focusing on the wrong station without any affiliate.

After what all Ansin went through with NBC nearly 30 years apart, I actually can't blame him for doing something like that. We'll probably never know what the Ansin's did to the management at NBC that caused the network to turn their backs on the Ansin's in both Miami and Boston but as we've seen with WSVN and now with WHDH they have survived not being affiliated with one of the big three networks and will continue to do so in the years to come

Disney can just wait for Pat to pass away and hope his successor is open to a deal.

Chris Parente, an anchor at Tribune's Denver duopoly, slid his stool back a little too far and shattered one of the monitors on their nine-screen video wall ON LIVE TV. Hopefully the tightwads at Tribune don't make him pay for the repairs ...
