The 4 English stations didn't do anything wrong. Telemundo's #1 status just shows that the demographics in DFW and other markets are shifting. Hispanics are the dominant demographic and it is showing in markets across the country....Miami, NYC, LA, Houston, Dallas, etc etc.

That answers my question, I knew that the other major markets that you mentioned the latino population is growing but DFW? I might call this a HUGE win for Telemundo and it probably wouldn't surprise me if Telemundo wins more markets as the latino population groiws and major Spanish language networks like Telemundo and Univision are going to benefit from this increase

It’s Texas... why wouldn’t the Latino population be growing? I don’t quite get why DFW would be a surprise?

When you think of Texas you only think of a few major cities that are close to the Mexican border (i.e. El Paso, San Antonio, etc.) as having the higher latino population whereas places like Dallas it wasn't really until a few years ago if not, a little bit futher back than that, we noticed an uptick in terms of population. Also this is a market where for DECADES it was dominated by WFAA and KDFW, the Spanish language stations in the area didn't really become a factor until DFW experienced the increase in Latinos moving to the area

It's very different when it's a sporting event versus a newscast. A sporting event can still be somewhat understandable in another language. A newscast, not so much.

 

But putting down Spanish-language television stations who are doing just as much work for their communities in news and public service is being discriminatory to what they do simply because it's not in a language you understand.

I don't think ns8401 intended to put down Spanish-language TV news. S/he wasn't saying Spanish-language news is somehow inferior to English-language stations, just that the numbers aren't particularly profound when you look beyond the surface and the press release...as in it's less about the content the stations are producing and more about the demographics.

 

In 2015-2016 about 3.6% of Hispanic TV households nationwide lived in DFW vs around 2.3% of overall households nationwide.

 

https://www.nationalmediaspots.com/media-stats/Nielsen-2016-2017-Hispanic-TV-Homes.pdf

 

You can see how some markets punch tremendously above or below their weight in this regard. In Hispanic households, the RGV is a top 10 market while barely cracking the top 80 overall. Obviously it's important to not necessarily conflate Hispanic with "Spanish-speaking", since plenty of Latino Americans speak zero Spanish...that is unless language is a factor in Nielsen's rankings.

Ok I’ll bite... what about in Oklahoma? Does the demographic shift peter out as you move north in  Texas to the point that it’s not much of a factor once you cross state lines?

Once you cross the Red River it becomes more of a Native American demographic than anything else because Oklahoma before it joined the Union in 1907 as the 46th State it was known as Indian Territory. 

 

Most of the Hispanic population in our state is on the South side of Oklahoma City along the I-240 corridor otherwise, once you go out of the major cities in Oklahoma, the Hispanic population drops off quite a bit

No. He meant the new LP they lit up last year. KCWH-LD, The CW affiliate in Lincoln (repeated on KNHL (formerly KHAS) 5.3). Gray has that Cornhusker state locked from Omaha to Scottsbluff.

Ah, thanks.

I don't know if anybody know this, but KDFW's Steve Eagar hasn't been on the air for a while is because he was diagnosed with prostate cancer. Eagar had his surgery yesterday and resting comfortably.  Almost 175,000 men get diagnosed with Prostate Cancer and about 30,000 die every year. Black men have A 60% increased risk. Getting a PSA test means early discovery. If you are 45+ and haven’t had a PSA test, get one. It’s a blood test. Easy. No pain. Do it!

 

Please take the time to send Steve wall you well wishes on his Facebook page.

We wish FOX 4's Steve Eagar the very best of recovery.

Hugs and Prayers, Steve and God Bless.

FTVLive is saying that a news anchor was killed in a plane crash near New Orleans Lakefront airport. Scott is doing the responsible thing and not reporting the name until the official word is released.

Here's the story:

 

(via NOLA.com) https://www.nola.com/news/crime_police/article_681fe7da-c069-11e9-b21e-0bf250e57d83.html

(via WDSU) https://www.wdsu.com/article/2-dead-after-plane-crashes-in-new-orleans-east-near-lakefront-airport/28723557

 

Again, it doesn't mention whose the news anchor that was killed, more likely until authorities name the victims. However, it does speculate who's the anchor that was killed, specifically if it came from New Orleans.

OMG. It was Nancy Parker! I can't believe this. The beloved NOLA anchor, mostly working with John Snell at WVUE, has passed away while working on a story and killed on that plane crash alongside the pilot.

Yes, this is terrible news. Nancy was beloved in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas. I remember her from her WAFB days, too...even met her at the SWAC basketball tournament back in the mid-1990s when the tournament was held at the Baton Rouge Centroplex. She was a very down-to-earth person...very nice.

 

My condolences to her husband Glynn Boyd, their kids and their extended family.

Absolutely shocked. Very sad to hear this. Sending my condolences to Glynn, Nancy's family, friends and colleagues.

Vicki Gardner, the lone survivor of the 2015 shooting that happened live on-air while being interviewed by WDBJ, is suing the station.

 

The $6 million lawsuit claims the station was negligent in hiring Vester Flanagan, the shooter.

Gray Television was initially named as a defendant, but was nonsuited since they purchased WDBJ several months after the attack.

WBAL-TV is taking the highly rated morning show of their sister radio station WIYY/98 Rock and putting it on TV. It will consist of 30 minute episodes airing after SNL, apparently it will take clips from their show and put it on air.  They said it won’t be just a bunch of random clips but they will be strung together and described similar to pop up video.  They said it was apparently a suggestion from the head of Hearst TV (which oversees the two radio stations). You can get more information here and there’s a YouTube video with their segment with WBAL GM Dan Joerres. 

 

Apparently its going to be a miniseries but with a possibility of more in the future.
