Congrats, wow your cake does cover a few bases (and I guess there's a pun in there somewhere 😉), but I'm sorry, what am I missing with the badminton shuttlecock?

We got severe weather in DFW and KDFW, KXAS & KTVT working overtime because of the severe weather coverage. WFAA finished their coverage and Delkus was a no show.

I was watching WFAA's stream here at work, then they abruptly wrapped. It was very weird.

KXAS, the NBC O&O for DFW, has issued a rare public apology for delays in breaking into last night’s Cowboys game to report on multiple tornadoes in its coverage area. Will be interesting to see if this does any long-term damage, ratings-wise, to the station. My guess is no. Certainly not a good look for them, though, at least in the short term.

The tornado happened during the 4th quarter, the game was not in doubt, KXAS could've cut away and referred unaffected viewers to the NBC Sports, NFL, or Yahoo! apps.

West Coast News: CBS Sacramento reporter Angel Cardenas just got himself on a NO-HIRE-LIST.  FIRED from the CBS O&O for doing a lousy stunt at the Sacramento Auto Show. The segment was for Good Day Sacramento.  Auto show producer called KMAX/KOVR GM and the reporter is now immediately removed from the station.

 

Sure enough today his profile has been removed from the station's website.. https://sacramento.cbslocal.com/station/cbs13-cw31/

The problem was you are in the toughest position; they probably thought taking social media heat and putting out a quick apology likely worked better in the end than a number of entitled Cowboys fans making death threats and calling for KXAS's license to be revoked because they dared to move the game to 5.2. Sadly, you know any calls for Ajit to make an example of them will fall on completely deaf ears.

Those cars are prized possessions. Firing him was definitely the right move.

 

Side note: Surprised GDS hasn't updated their graphics to bring it closer to the current CBS O&O pack.

Absolutely, I agree on the firing part and yes GDS needs to update graphics ASAP to be along with the rest of the O&O's...

When is the next graphics update for all CBS O&O's- 2020, 2021 or 2022?

That was just pure disrespect on the reporter's front. Glad he is gone.

 

As an aside, has CBS ever considered airing Good Day Sacramento on both KMAX AND KOVR?

KXAS should be very fortunate there were no deaths.  I'm sure if there were quite a number injured/killed there might be a different opinion towards them.  I was surprised, before I went to work that night, that it was just the game and a little corner graphic, no cut ins while I had it on.  Meanwhile, KDFW showed a red-by-green possible tornado signature on their radar.  If the late/great Harold Taft were still around, there would have been more than a small corner graphic on KXAS.

They did cut in a few times during the game, but not very often after that.

 

As I've said on Discord, severe weather events during live sporting events is a lose-lose for stations.

 Since I've moved to DFW, I've noticed that WFAA's breaking news coverage is underwhelming at best. KDFW is this town's news leader without a doubt, and KTVT has very solid coverage as well. Just a little weird at how bad WFAA is compared to how strong I've always heard the station was.

 

Also I wonder would KXAS would have cut away from the game if it had been anyone other than Dallas playing a division rival? I'd like to hope that that's the only reason they stuck with the game despite it being a negligent decision.

Good Day Sacramento uses graphics that don't look like the O&O package on purpose. They don't want it to look like the news graphics because it's not really a news broadcast. It's a morning show with news.

That is a copy! Appreciate the clarification..

Are the CBS O&O's getting a new graphics package within the next year or two? I believe last update was in 2016.
