So small follow up.

 

The FCC has greenlighted the KFNB (and satellites) Front Range transaction. But the KGWC (Big Horn) & KTWO (VIsion WY) is still pending.

Did GRAY TV try to buy KGWC TV a couple of years ago and was blocked by the DOJ.

The DOJ was going to block the sale (and that was after the FCC approved parts of that deal (except for KFNE). So Gray called off that sale.

What are the possibilities of the FCC approving the sale of KGWC and KTWO TV to their respective companies

Usually the FCC would approve all three-related transactions concurrently. But I remember back in 2014, when the FCC approved the Gray/Hoak transaction, but not the related KHAS & KXND/KNDX deal to sidecar "Excalibur Broadcasting". Those stations would be spun off to minority broadcasters later that year.

 

We'll see what happens. But remember, the FCC just went back to the 2016 ownership rules, after the Third Circult vacated Pai's 2017 dereg rule last Fall. One of the rules was the relaxation of the JSA attribution rule from the Wheeler-era.

UPDATE: TV Guide and OnTVTonight have revised their listings for WHME to account for the added WISH simulcasts, and apparently, weekend news simulcasts will be limited in scope. The full schedule will consist of these newscasts:

* News 8 Daybreak - weekdays 4:00-10:00 a.m., Saturdays 5:30-7:00 a.m.
* News 8 at 4:00 - weekdays 4:00-5:00 p.m.
* News 8 at 5:00 - weekdays 5:00-6:00 p.m.
* News 8 at 6:00 - weekdays 6:00-7:00 p.m., Saturdays 6:00-6:30 p.m.
* News 8 at 10:00 - weeknights 10:00-11:00 p.m.
* News 8 at 11:00 - Monday-Saturdays 11:00-11:30 p.m.

Exempted newscasts are the Saturday 7:00-9:00 and Sunday 5:30-9:00 a.m. editions of Daybreak, the weekday 11:00 a.m. News 8 Midday (shown on WISH from 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.), the Saturday editions of the 10:00 p.m. newscast and all Sunday newscasts (as well as The Sports Locker). Religious and secular programming as well as infomercials will continue to occupy WHME’s entire Sunday schedule.


BTW, WISH parent Circle City Broadcasting states that WHME will basically be the test springboard for a statewide news network to include simulcasting agreements with other Indiana television stations (in cities like Terre Haute, Evansville and Fort Wayne) that don’t have a news operation of their own. So, the WHME arrangement is likely to be a long-term thing.
 

 

To clarify... WISH-TV's Weekend Daybreak actually goes from 5:30-10:00 a.m.

 

Also, I'm not too sure about that limited scope just yet. I'll wait another week before true clarification, only because some sites don't put the weekday news on the schedule past this week so I'll just wait.

As of today, WEAR has resumed normal operations from their studios in Pensacola. 

They report that the two staffers of theirs who contracted COVID-19 are at home and are doing fine.

Quality station, excellent product, but damn, they're getting so bloated. By my count, this swells their weekday anchor roster to 11. That's insane, no matter how many hours they produce.

They're #1, but your right. Just provide three or so anchor teams and they'll be good but nope.

And also not the he most conventional anchoring line-up either. One anchor team is responsible for just one 30 minute broadcast. Election year dollars are hard to pass up though and it’s good to see some news back on KIAH.

Agreed ... an odd choice of anchors. Chauncy and Mayra anchor at 3 and could’ve done this easily. So ... who anchors weekends now for KTRK?
 

Also, who will Nexstar partner with in Dallas bc we know this arrangement is coming to KDAF soon ..,

Basically similar to the WPHL/WPVI arrangement. KIAH has an in-house morning show (which has a KTRK alum as an anchor) and will have this new 9pm show.

Right now Nexstar has an arrangement with KXAS-TV for use of video among its stations. Just something to keep in mind...

If you post another post within a short period of time, it will automatically merge.

Should have a choice, the subjects could be totally unrelated.
