Both Davis, ex-news anchor Gerry Grant, and ex-meteorologist Bill Kamal are a disgrace in their careers. It's the price they pay for their crimes.

I was expecting a much tougher sentence for Davis....but many of his counts had concurrent sentences. 

His probation goes much longer and if he violates it, it could mean more prison time.

 

Let's just say that it's been a terrible few years for WBNS.  The death of Chris Bradley, this, and one of America's few family owned stations succumbing to corporate ownership. 

That being said, if the Wolfe Family was aware of ANY doings while Davis was on the clock, there's blood on their hands too.

In advance of News Center Maine's launch of their 4PM newscast on Monday, WGME has changed how it starts its 5PM newscast. Instead of a tease before the last segment of Judge Judy, the tease has become the intro for the newscast itself. (Edit: It was a one-day fluke)

Back to Atlanta, another change at WGCL: General Manager Lyle Banks is out. He'll be replaced by Deborah Collura from Charlotte's WCNC.

There have been too many revolving doors at 'GCL. IMO, that station's a joke with all the anchor changes, news director changes, management changes it's chaos. The station deserves better than this.

Whenever I watch cbs46 (which isn't that often) I have to ask myself: "who are these people"? The turnover at the station is ridiculous. Meredith never gives the station management or talent time to implement a new strategy and let it grow. It's a constant cycle of rebrands and talent/management turnover. After years of Gannett/Tegna mismanaging WXIA, WGCL should be in a place to compete. But instead Meredith's impatience has led to no real significant gains in the ratings.

Skimming thru FCC filings + based on reasons bolded above, it appears the Univision affiliation + branding may move to WSTE, leaving WLII without an affiliate. It may signal a return to independent a la Teleonce (previous branding until 2002) Some of Uni/Unimas programming could go thru WAPA, while remain an indy. Similar to '90s + '00s when Telemundo PR had some Televisa novelas while WAPA had Uni-network programs (Primer Impacto, Cristina, Despierta Am.) + some Venevision programs. Cisneros groups had interest on ch. 4 back then.

From another source, translated:

https://www.tvboricuausa.com/2020/03/incierto-futuro-univision-puerto-rico-venta-canales-11-9-y-12.html

"From what is clear from the document, although not textually, Univisión PR would be passing at some point to the WSTE-DT signal (channel 7), while channels 11, 9 and 12 would be operated by another company (once) time the sale is consummated."

 

Q: What will happen with WAPA Deportes (sports subchannel) in terms of content? Will it rely more on TUDN + less on deals with NBA + MLB? (via ESPN/Turner/MLBN)

 

Could WAPA launch as a sub-channel on Univision-owned stations on the mainland in markets with a large Puerto Rican population?

Surprised this hasn't been mentioned yet or that there hasn't been a thread specifically about riots and the press. Lots of violence in Louisville last night. The most extreme was a police officer firing pepper balls at a WAVE crew on live television. WAVE issued a statement.

 

WAVE also had a car spray painted. Speaking of cars, WLKY had one of their scompletely destroyed.

 

WLKY also took damage from protestors/rioters themselves.

 

WHAS took direct damage to their building. Windows to their front entrance were shattered, some parts spray painted, and tear gas even got into the building. In-building personnel were evacuated their stations to take shelter. Crews quickly worked to secure the building. Longtime anchor Doug Proffitt had a brief commentary on the situation at the end of their special report around 1:30 a.m. EDT.

 

I am not aware of any damage of violence being inflicted toward WDRB or Spectrum Kentucky.

They had a great opportunity (and seized it) due to Tegna's GRAVE missteps with 11Alive (far beyond their atrocity of a logo, but with talent and format changes), but once again, squandered it to become the perpetual joke of Atlanta TV.  Would some group or person PLEASE buy this station out of its misery?!?!?!?

Please keep WSOC anchor Allison Latos and her  husband and family in your thoughts and prayers. On May 13 she lost her baby girl Hannah due to an inoperable brain condition.

Either TBS or at least bring back the short lived syndicated Braves Southeast Network. The games were on WAXN in Charlotte.

Above is why automatic merging of replies needs to go away or at least needs to be optional.

Erica Bryant just made the announcement during the 6pm newscast after the weather forecast.

Someone was asleep at the wheel. And also C Clairity still SUCKS as a news theme. Very unfitting for those teases

The man himself (Romines) came from WTEN in Albany, so it could be interesting.

On an unrelated note, it’s stunning that a station in Tennessee doesn’t have those call letters.
