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.

 

KGWC & KTWO was also greenlighted.

KPRC has named Rachel McNeill's replacement on the morning newscast.  Taniya Wright, a morning anchor for WNCN in Raleigh, will begin on KPRC on August 5th.  Consumer expert Amy Davis and health reporter Haley Hernandez have been alternating as morning co-anchor on a weekly basis since McNeill's departure.

Taniya Wright has departed from KPRC-TV.  Whether she resigned or was dismissed is currently unclear; the station did not make an official comment.

Her bio has been removed from KPRC's website this afternoon.

Effective Monday WFXT is shifting its six-hour morning news block forward one hour to 5A-11A. With fewer commuters and more home-based workers, this gamble just might pay off.

It's only temporary though so don't celebrate just yet as it'll go back to 4-10AM once its all through.

Not her, Taniya used to work here in Raleigh, I knew her the only reason for her move to Texas Houston was to follow her fiance. She had an excellent paying job that sad not even a year. Ironically at WNCN it wasn't even a year. I gonna miss watching her in Houston from Raleigh  she a good salary and following. It was so stupid she left.

I've seen nothing in the station's messaging to suggest that this is temporary. In any event, this will not be through any time soon; as with previous pandemics, there is significant risk of a second wave absent an effective vaccine.

The government shutdown was by definition temporary; without a vaccine work schedules face extreme disruption for an indefinite period of time in the COVID-19 era. Furthermore, a significant amount of work will be home-based going forward. Even a number of TV reporters I've spoken to acknowledge that things will never be the same again.

Anyone knows when the SouthEast Emmys nominations will be announced?

A homebound reporter at KCRA's partner has given a new meaning to "Out and About" here🤭 (no embed of the tweet or the videos of it below it because I'd like to continue posting here 😉)

 

And yes, like the auto show guy from KOVR/KMAX a few months back, Hearst/KCRA are pulling all mention of it/the report from every social media channel they have and praying to the FCC gods Ajit is distracted.

So now that it's got FCC Approval, did I read this correct that the new owners have 90 days from April 7th to Consummate the sale?

Yes. Once the FCC greenlights a deal, the parties have 90 days to complete the sale. That's with any transaction.

 

But the parties can file an "extension of consummation" to add another 90 days if they need to. That's a rare though.

Surprised KTWO TV and KGWC TV did not close the next day. The FCC okayed the deal on April 16. When Gray TV had the okay by the FCC on KDLT TV deal, the sale was consumed the next day.

Terrible news for all of their employees, many who have been working hard during this crisis.

 

It wouldn't surprise me if Sinclair is next...they took a horrible gamble on the RSN purchases from FOX, lost a lot of carriage before the crisis, and then came the COVID-19 crisis and all of it's fallout. 

Now the RSN's are worthless without fresh content and less ways to watch them.

Meanwhile, the stations are chugging along producing content and many are working from home.

obviously unfortunate circumstances BUT you can't tell 'em thirsty broads (and some dudes, no judging) below reactions on twitter or any social for nothing, wishing they were in that reporter's place. 🤭 'Welcoming distraction' indeed. To pray for Ajit Pay-off to sleep over is an understatement.
