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

Remember I've mentioned that ABC might considering bringing AMC and OLTL back from the dead, well 90% of soap fans agree to it.

If ABC winds up canceling GMA Day Strahan & Sara (what are their ratings like?) and does announces a comeback for the cancelled soaps, they can only bring back one or the other, since they gave 3pm back to the affiliates back in 2012 after OLTL's replacement The Revolution, bombed. And don't expect them to cancel the View too, that show just got it's second wind by becoming another anti-Trump outlet.

 

My money is on the older All My Children getting the reboot, but who knows?

Entering Spectulatron territory here, but - they could also make them both a half hour a la Bold and the Beautiful on CBS. Or be truly unconventional (and old fashioned) and divide the two hours into three 40-minute shows.  Since they all function in the same “world” - it could open the door for some fun crossover and hook fans in to the whole lineup.  (Because I’d assume they’d film in LA like GH and AMC towards the end of its run.). 

 

Best guess is that they end up on a Disney-owned streaming platform.

Three recent departure announcements in Dallas-Fort Worth:

* Lexie Houghtaling, a KXAS reporter, is leaving after 2 years.

MaryAnn Martinez, a KTVT reporter, is leaving after less than 2 years.

Edward Egros, sports reporter/anchor at KDFW, is leaving after 5 1/2 years.

 

None of the reports reveal where any of the talent is going, to another station or to do something else.

Talk shows are cheap, much cheaper than a mon-fri. If any soap returns it would be on a weekly or twice weekly basis and most likely stream oriented.   

 

The most likely scenarios would be either a hard or soft reboot so the PP era can be forgotten about. The one thing going for the shows is brand/ip familiarity.

She only lasted 11 months...

And why is Lisa Remillard still sitting on the beach ?

Not a good year for USC Trojans at KUSI.

 

Dani went silent 2 weeks ago, and judging by KUSI standards it must have been really , really bad to keep it sooooo quiet.

 

It might be an "A-P-R" situation:

"Attitude"...

"Porn"...

or "Rehab".

WALA has tweaked their morning newscasts....

The 4:30-7am portion still remains as Fox 10 News with longtime anchors Eric Reynolds & Sarah Wall, but now, the 7-9am portion is now "Good Day Gulf Coast" with Studio 10 co-host Joe Emer adding anchor duties alongside Sarah Wall.

 

I haven't seen too much of a shift of content (like other Fox "Good Day" shows) since the WALA morning news has been very news-intensive, but that could change.  Studio 10 is the lifestyle pay-for-play show where all of the "filler" has gone....

So they pulled a KTTV basically.

Lisa just got engaged in January to Dr. Travis Ehlers and recently formed a new company with former KFMB anchor Nichelle Medina called BlondeRavenStrategies.com.

Elisabeth Kimmel, former owner of KFMB, has been arrested due to her alleged involvement in the college admissions bribery scandal that has also involved Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin.

If she still owned KFMB, could that be grounds for an FCC license violation?  It's no longer an issue since Tegna owns the station and is no longer under her control.

Possibly yes because it was under her control and that she was abusing money, though it was a personal thing with her family and not the station itself, but still...

 

Because she got into trouble, KFMB would've been in trouble because of her. If this wasn't going to be a violation, then this could've caused KFMB to be sold anyways.

Basically, KFMB would've still been sold off it'd just been delayed. So I'm sure she was glad to have sold KFMB off when she did because that could've been a mess at the FCC
