WOIO and constant technical difficulties

Unless CBS wants to Buy WOIO/WUAB and make it better or WKRC switches from NBC to CBS (Tegna is the largest operator of CBS stations in terms of overall market reach, owning 15 CBS-affiliated stations  that reach 8.9% of the country.) there is not much CBS can do to get out of the spot they are in for Cleveland. We know Gray won't be able to compete with either WJW or WEWS. If WOIO/WUAB becomes a CBS/CW O&O. It could be run similar to KDKA/WPCW and do pretty well.

WKRC?

I fixed it to include the correct station. 

That makes even more sense. I can't see WKYC switching affiliates. It's more likely CBS could buy WOIO (which isn't gonna happen anytime soon as Gray won't sell)

Not to mention, thing that'd draw CBS to buy stations is the Cleveland Browns, which have only just come out of a long slump. Cleveland sports teams have never done particularly well for the most part. Only the Caveliers have really bucked the trend.

CBS could buy any of the other stations in Cleveland.  Nexstar wouldn't give up WJW and neither would Scripps with WEWS.  Maybe Tegna might surrender WKYC.  Then there's WBNX.  Not to mention WVPX and WDLI.

 

The last thing WOIO needs though is another affiliate switch.  It was a rough go the first time in 1994.  Not sure they would want to repeat it again.

WOIO has preempted CBS This Morning this morning and there really is no need to. Cleveland did not get the snow as expected. Once again, WOIO

is a joke. Last week they did a complete story with anchor Tiffany Tucker, her narration showed an empty studio chair for 45 seconds. This place is a 

dismal television station in a market that likes CBS. Losers every time they are the air. We are going to start doing shots when they screw up. Big fun awaits.

The engineers don't care. Life in a basement.

WOIO seems to be in the ratings basement.  Outside of CBS lead-ins, they are dead last.  Overall, they are doing horribly.  WJW is tops and WEWS is doing well and much better than before.  WKYC keeps dropping as a lot of people are not responding to its current approach.

The new thing now at WOIO is when they go from CBS to local, the switch in master control causes a 2 second

audio/video drop. It's asinine and has been going on for years. So when they leave the CBS Television network and transition into

the local news at 11, (wait), master control hits the switch so 19 Action News starts and then when the anchor starts to talk, the

2 second dropout occurs. The place is a joke. 

 

The anchor who is stays off set look likes a fool. Great stories, but this is the worst production

in the USA.  Even United Artists TV and Gaylord would cringe at this. 

 

Also asinine, they are back to the time/temp top of the hour with no time/temp!!! HAHAHAHA! Why do a time temp if you can't do it?

 

Lazy ass station. COVID is not an excuse anymore. Lazy staff.

Sound like a frame sync or two is out of whack. 

 

Is the time/temp thing sponsored?  There's your answer.  Sadly but true, they probably only care that the "spot ran" instead of it working like it should.

Just tonight on CBS' debut of the CBS Special Presentation animation before Frosty the Snowman got covered

up by WOIO's wonderful on crack engineering department. They covered up with first few seconds with a Carvana commercial.

I recorded it and sure enough, they screwed it up.

Before this tonight there were running a Spectrum spot with digital audio buzz for a few weeks. I swear no one at that station watches 

the on the air signal.
