  1. last time WTVX had a newscast it was being produced by KUTV.


    It will be interesting to see how this all plays out and again what happens after Election Day. I have a feeling these newscasts will get pulled by December 1st. Its also the same with the new news department going in @ WSFL

    I feel like moving the 7am newscast to 9am would've been the better option, move Daytime Jeopardy to an overnight slot air DBL at 12 (I think they do provide a feed for that slot) and just bump Ellen to 3.


    Because the way I view their new schedule now, the Four 2 Five is not going to get very good ratings because their lead-in is not that good.

    Well if they bring back ole Andy Griffin then they might have ratings jump through the roof. That used to be their lead in

    This whole WKYC thing is a better-executed version of what Fox tried (and failed) to do in Charlotte....

    I think that whole experiment set beck wjzy about 15 years. No offense.. But it is tough to take down a great market leader that is local as well. I know the old assistant news director Ned hibbert got let go and went to wcnc because of how bad it flopped.

    WTVJ’s Dan Krauth signed off recently and is heading way up I-95 to WABC-TV. I know a few of TVJ’s producers have done stints and WABC but a few returned “home”. 

    Dan was a great reporter down here. Glad he is going to target bigger fish in NYC. Also I really miss Paul deanno when he was at wtvj.

    I'll nominate this one from WCIV... that unnecessarily huge text. eek



    It presumably replaced a fairly decent open with Ultra News... I don't know if there may have been another open with Overture prior to 2004/05


    When I went up to Charleston, I do not remember them having a different open, but I was there during their Ultra News days.

    KFDA I noticed has new graphics.  They aren't quite like WOIO... During the weather segment, the only thing really left over from Raycom are the circles used to display the temps on the maps...




    Looks like from the gray graphics hub with some recoloring done

  7. How about this for some nostalgia in Houston. KTXH (UPN 20) broadcasting a Houston Aeros (then an IHL team) in their second season.

    from when they were Paramount 20

    Or about how when ESPN2 during the NHL lockout was carrying the IHL

    So wait, KJTV is not owned by Ramar? I thought they were. Ramar has owned KJTV since day one.

    Ramar still owns them, but (and maybe because I am way out of loop at times) but I like what they have done with the station

    A small M&A. Ramar wants to take advantage on the updated duopoly rules in Lubbock.


    They're buying Wolfforth, TX's CW station KLCW, from Woods (owner of Fox station KJTV-TV) for $100K.

    I know this is somewhat a long time ago but I have been impressed with what they have done with FOX34 in Lubbock considering it is locally owned.


    There stream right now has TECH Talk which is part of FOX34 NEWS NOW


    Hearing Ernie Anderson talk about the WWF back in the late 80s early 90s. This was the bid video for the LA Coliseum to get Wrestlemania. Of course due to lagging ticket sales, they moved it to the LA Memorial Sports Arena
