☝️ Gotta give credit to any organization that sticks around for 1,065 years. Hey, it's longer than the Notre Dame cathedral.

Ooops   

United is actually getting out of everything. It sold its last newspaper (The Kenosha News) a few weeks ago. They've slowly been selling off their other newspaper properties over the past few years.

About time. The Raycom websites were some of the worst around IMO.

I agree. The previous Frankly sites (gasp) were much better than what they're leaving.

Gray is unloading its other radio property.

 

Lamesa, TX Spanish radio outlet KTXC is being sold to religious broadcaster VCY America, Inc. for $650K.

 

Upon closing, the callsign will be changed.

You can add a few more with the new website design: WBTV, WECT and WIS. Only three stations remain and they should be switched in the next couple days I would think.

About time

The last holdout is WFLX (which Scripps actually does the heavy lifting in).

There's technically one holdout left, KNIN, where Scripps also does the heavy lifting, yet, they use the Revrocket platform unlike to other Raycom stations before Gray.

They're probably the only RevRocket holdout, since the other stations that used it were the ones divested to Lockwood, who has since implemented standard websites.

Gray is mandating vaccinations for all new hires. They didn't mention it for existing employees yet. First TV group to do so.

With the delta variant floating around, I'm surprised it took this long for a major media entity to do this. Hopefully, others follow IMO...

Gray is LP-picking again. This time, its in Richmond.

 

They're acquiring WRID-LD from Daystar (Word of God Fellowship) for $630K.

 

I don't see this being more than a UHF repeater to WWBT & WUPV (since they're on RF 10 & 8, respectively).

Hoping they'll turn this into an in-city translator viewers can get, without relying on that problematic VHF signal.

Here's a thought...

 

I like the sound of "CBS 6".  It gives them a chance to escape all of the stigma of the years of "19" and their place in the basement.  Since it's a UHF station with the PSIP of 6, it could be a chance of finally rebranding "WOIO".  Almost like WBMA-LP was the source of the programming of ABC 33/40, WOIO's current signal could simply become another repeater of WLFM, just for branding purposes.  WUAB could be as-is, shoehorned onto WOIO's signal with their existing "43" PSIP.  Any other translators would relay like they've always done.

So we now know what they'll be using WLFM-LD for.

 

WOIO will be launching a new Telemundo affiliate for Northeast Ohio with new callsign "WTCL", beginning January 1st.

 

Still hope they can repeat WOIO on a sub (19.10) on that stick for those in-city folk who can't get 19 on RF 10.
