Deepest condolences to WALA's recently retired Bob Grip, on the loss of his wife Marie from Pancreatic Cancer.

 

Even WKRG sent their condolences on their facebook page.  Before coming to WALA (and a stint in Virginia Beach), Grip anchored and reported at WKRG in the mid to late 70s...

While not TV related....this is BIG news out of New Orleans, and proof that good old fashioned demand can overcome the stupidity and short-sightness of a lousy owner....

 

https://www.nola.com/news/2019/05/owners-of-the-new-orleans-advocate-buy-nolacom-the-times-picayune.html

 

The Manships created a New Orleans edition of the Advocate in response to the T-P going to a 3-day schedule.  Eventually the T-P relented and went back to publishing 7 days a week.  The Manships ended up selling the Advocate to Georges Media, while retaining WBRZ and KRGV.  Even as the T-P tried to undo the damage, the new Advocate pushed them into 2nd place in New Orleans.

 

Now if only someone can make the other Advance papers (and clusters) great again. 

I know newspapers are a dying industry, but the decent companies are still putting out a quality product while those that slash and burn are getting wha'ts coming to them for their cost-cutting...

Well so much for saving the T-P....the owners are laying off the entire staff....

A real dick move by both parties....Advance for reducing the Times-Picayune to this and selling to someone who puts everyone else on the street.

I bet he'll fill all the non-network and non-news hours with his own programming.

Well, not necessarily all of them. America's Court with Judge Ross already airs on KADN 15.3 (the subchannel called My Acadiana TV, in reference to the subchannel's My Network TV affiliation). He does have shows that air on other channels in the Lafayette, LA, market, though; with that said, it wouldn't surprise me if at least most of his shows, if not all of them, moved to KADN and its subchannels.

I certainly wouldn't be surprised.

A full hour of each of his incessant "court" shows each weekday, Funny You Should Ask every afternoon, Comics Unleashed late nights, all his many infotainment shows during weekends, and those weird sitcoms that many well-known TV actors somehow signed up for on weeknights.

That's a strategy. 😆

Even better, he'll put all of "his" channels he sued to get on DirecTV and Xfinity as subchannels on these stations!

Or ... he could want the station to get ratings.

That's 9 additional channels (counting the Weather Channel)!! I don't think KADN can hold that many subchannels!! 🙁

Forgot about TWC 🤦‍♂️

I was thinking of all of the ones that end in .TV that air his shows non-stop.  No wonder they're buried after the religious channels on DirecTV!

There is the theoretical chance that Byron Allen running stations with only his shows (whose production costs have already been paid for) could be profitable enough to survive low ratings, but it's more likely he'll run them as normal stations with outside syndicated product.
