TEGNA & Scripps are killing their stations with the current crap.  Again, 19 despite it silliness it has more muscle than KYC & EWS... just sayin'-  

 

To be quite frank, speaking of Tegna, I’d rather have them do a ownership swap a la Cox/Fox with WFXT/KTVU with CBS to get WFOR out of its misery.

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

Miami is an AFC market. Don't think CBS would want to get rid of WFOR because of that.

On September 23, WKYC is changing their 6pm newscast from "Channel 3 News at 6" to "What Matters Most."  Saw it in another promo.

 

WKYC is making BOTH WEWS and WOIO look waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay more watchable by comparison.

 

Also, I prefer Scripps over TEGNA anyways.

 

But no matter what, as long as it goes back to FOX (O&O that is)... NOBODY and I mean... NOOOOOOOBODY is ever going to touch WJW again. In fact, I see WJW as the next WTVT within that station group.

Anchor/reporter Chris Emma and weekend anchor Nick Emmons. They've apparently been wiped from the bio page. With such poor ratings, it sounds like one of the newer bosses is looking for scapegoats, but not without some headbutting in the front office.

I mean, let’s be real, they are on anchor overload anyway.

Not that Nexstar would be bad stewards of WJW. 😋

Their new director of news content, Adam Miller, ran the 4th hour of the Today Show before he came to WKYC.

 

He's busy posting selfies with Al Roker and Kathie Lee - and memories of selfies with Kathie Lee - so if you're looking for "infotainment" you may be OK.

 

See what he's done to that horrible morning newscast?

KPNX is getting back in the midday news business...sort of. They’re introducing a 12-minute program at noon which appears it will be nothing but light stuff for stay-at-home moms. The sales department-produced “Arizona Midday” will air from 12:15 to 1pm.

From the AJC: WGCL names Shon Gables permanent evening anchor effectively replacing Sharon Reed. The station currently has a second evening position open since Thomas Roberts left.

Ok @CLETVFan - each newscast title update is getting more and more ludicrous!

 

Why are they throwing their brand equity down the toilet?!  Are the ratings bad enough to justify the changes?  Argh, how I miss 2006 WKYC.

 

 

 

 

Yeah. I would say this plan is VERY ambitious. It'll be interesting to see how it pans out.

Three Kansas City anchors are leaving at the same time.

 

Richard Sharp is going from KSHB to Sacramento. Nicole DiAntonio is traveling from WDAF-TV to Washington, D.C.. Steve Albritton is leaving KMBC-TV for Cincinnati.

 

In St. Louis, KTVI has two pregnant meteorologists simultaneously.

Happy that she's doing well in Atlanta. Remembered her when she worked at WCBSTV & CBS News in New York. Great journalist. Just too bad that WCBS couldn't keep her. For those that may not know. She worked at WCBSTV from 2003-2006 and the station did another fire sale and got rid of most of that staff. Don't ask me who's left from 2006 staff.

WKYC is going to change it's morning newscast's name to "Go!" on September 23rd.  Seems like all of their newscasts are getting new names.

I got some names:

5pm: "Watch Us After Ellen"

7pm: "At Least It's Leas Boring than Wheel of Fortune"

11pm: "At Least Fox 8 Isn't Here...Yet"

Weekend Mornings: "Go...Back to Sleep!"

A small M&A. 

 

Remember KGBY? 

 

That was the former KJCT when the station was on its full-power signal, before Gray (owner of KKCO) sold the station to a minority-owner broadcaster back in 2014

 

Now that broadcaster is selling the station. Chang Media Group is selling KGBY to Ventura Media Communications for $375K.

 

Ventura Media also owns stations in Fresno, CA and Idaho Falls, ID. That includes KVUI (which was the former Fox affiliate KFXP, prior to 2011).
