The post in this thread came first, and the news likely doesn't need its own thread.

I actually expanded on a possible sale of WPGH/WPNT in the thread so I think it is warranted.

When did KMSG-LD (the MyNetwork successor to the now religious-KAIL) drop KFSN's 8pm news? Tried to record it tonight and they now have an hour of NewsNet in its place?

 

Maybe the contract ended and the super cheap folks at Cocola opted not to renew. That company is CHEAP.

 

I think KFSN is still producing it? At last check on the schedules, KMSG still airs an hour of news at 8pm. Unless something has changed. Let me know.

I know it's come and gone a few times. KFSN just launched a 7pm streaming newscast, so unless it simulcasts on the other station (like KTRK's 9pm show), I'm guessing the off-network OTA newscast is gone.

Oh I totally forgot about that. Damn.

Ok a couple things with this. 

 

1. Why is Denise anchoring this newscast? Doesn't she just do the 6pm? 

And 2. KDKA already does Pittsburgh Today Live at 9am (which is technically a lifestyle show), so I'm not sure why they'd start a 9am newscast when they already have a locally produced show that seems to be successful in that slot.

The end of Maury on WJZ? Never thought I'd see that day...

Wait: Isn’t Maury Povich calling it quits with his show at the end of this season?? That alone might be the reason why the show will soon be off WJZ’s airwaves…..

And that's why CBS is doing this. Also in every other market, CBS can create a local news monopoly at this timeslot or create competition against independents/CW affiliates airing local news.

I wonder if CBS will continue to offer LMAD at 9am or move it to a universal time at 2pm.

What is going to happen to Drew Barrymore on the O&O’s? I thought she was doing well enough to be renewed for another season.

Would she be replacing Judge Judy at 4?  I guess CBS doesn't feel a 4 pm news broadcast competing against the ABC and NBC O&O's is worth it?

A lot of CBS O&O's don't air Judge Judy. KYW never did. Now they have a 4p newscast. I do agree that Drew Barrymore could move to that slot though (or she could start airing at 3 and Dr. Phil could move to 4).

WBTV could start a 9am newscast and move QC in the Morning to 10am if everyone moved LMAD to 3/2. Regardless, they need to start a 9am or 3pm newscast, there is no need for QC in the Morning AND QC at 3.

Say what you will about WSB-TV & WGCL-TV and it looks like another Atlanta icon changing stations.  Karyn Greer who been at both WGCL & WXIA. She heading

over to WSB-TV.

WOW, that was definitely unexpected. Congrats to her though! It's rare that WSB will add someone from a last place station in the market even with her rich Atlanta History.

Who has been anchoring in Jovita’s place? It’s odd they would hire Karyn and not know which show(s) she’ll be on.

Likely 5 & 11 pm with Wendy Corona adding 6 pm duties in addition her 4 pm duties. I believe Wendy for the time being has been anchoring all of the evening shows.
