I dont know if this got mentioned, but KPRC is celebrating 70 years this year: They have added an interactive site on click2houston.com 

 

https://www.click2houston.com/s/anniversary/2000s/2007.html (there is a menu bar to the left that can go through the different years.)

 

Also, the crazy part is that Bill is fixing to get to 50 years of broadcasting, with right now 47 years in the city of Houston.

Actually I've discovered that all CBS O&Os are doing it. Except KYW and WBBM.

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 ...

 

 

 

....and then, no sooner that the rear monitor is impacted, he goes and sits down on his tablet!  Is he really trying for 2-in-a-row?  Glad I don't have to replace that monitor.

From that video and others I’ve seen it looks like they’re just in color customized Otterbox Defender cases.  Those things are pretty tough to break and sitting on the screen directly won’t hurt it. (I had mine do cart wheels down the stairs with no issues and once fall and hit the corner edge of piece of furniture).

WJZ too...it's bug has been 4:3-safe since the big "refresh" last summer

 

Tuned in today and well...my original post did not age well. I didn't know the bug moved. Last I saw it, they had it 4:3-safe for the post-Grammy newscast some weeks back.

No more Bay Area tidbits. Rich Lieberman suspends account indefinitely.

I will miss Rich...

 

Poor guy got pretty beat-up emotionally lately with the passing of Van Amburg,  the suicide of Cumulus/ KGO-AM810,  and finally the passing last year of his mother.

 

 It's hard to make money off a local blog.  He gave it a good go and got some juicy exclusives... and he sure pissed off some folks.

 

 I hope he comes over here and joins us at TVNT.

Oh that is sooooo pretty!

It's a  2018 bell 505 Jet Ranger X....here are the flight specs.

  https://www.helis.com/database/cn/49947/

Interesting choice with an omni antenna. Looks like the camera and microwave antenna is easily removable for maintenance or change-outs with another airship.

 

Would love to see more on this bird...hey @rkolsen do you have any details on this beauty?  Any tech specs out there yet???

For ratings purposes, I'm fairly sure that Fairfield is considered the San Francisco DMA, but Vacaville is in Sacramento's. That means, for example, that KOVR doesn't get credit for anyone in Fairfield who might be watching them.

 

There are a number of odd overlapping carriage situations in the two markets that mostly date back to older cable deals or some other reason. KCRA is still on the Comcast lineup in Contra Costa County, and I'm 99% sure that's a leftover from the KRON/KNTV/NBC spat. KTVU can also be seen OTA and on cable in the Eureka/Redding and Monterey/Salinas markets, though a lot of that also stems from its superstation era in the 80s.

Fairfield is in the Sacramento DMA, it's Vallejo that's in the San Francisco DMA.

And you can add WBBM to the fold, too, but they haven't adjusted the lower thirds.

here's something you don't see every day... an anchor appearing on a competitor...

 

KXTV morning anchor Mark S. Allen appeared on KMAX's Good Day Sacramento (his former home) to commemorate the retirement of GDS anchor Marianne McClary.

WATN weekend meteorologist Brandon "Chase" Arnold has left the station to move to Milwaukee with his fiancée, Mary Jo Ola, also from WATN weekends. It appears his replacement is Ed Echols, formerly of WHBQ. I'm not 100% familiar with the situation here, so maybe someone else can fill me in... when/why exactly did Ed leave Fox 13?

After a tornado hit Columbus, MS yesterday, WCBI went down - power outage. Not sure if the station had any damage.

Any further updates on the situation at WCBI?
