  1. WTAE is pretty much the only station putting in any effort. KDKA or “CBS NEWS PITTSBURGH” is coasting on its heritage and the effects of Apollo are evident in the product WPXI is putting out.
  2. I always thought Dan would have been a great replacement for Charlie Rose on CBS This Morning.
  3. Jamie Apody’s departure is official. https://www.bizjournals.com/philadelphia/news/2024/04/26/jamie-apody-departing-6abc-after-months-off-air.amp.html
  4. In Baltimore (like Pittsburgh) the Hearst station is the only operation with a helicopter. The impact on the Key Bridge coverage is glaring. How long until CBS sees the error of its ways?
  5. If I remember correctly, Chuck didn’t do much to move the needle at WNBC. It was the addition of Sue and their pairing that made 4 a ratings contender.
  6. And this is supposed to be an update?
  7. Welp so much for Y&R and B&B getting canned and NBC Waiting Room News being the future. CBS has a new soap in development.
  8. CBS O&Os that were formerly Group W stations tend to outperform their CBS peers. While WCBS seems to have stabilized over the past few years, WBBM is blown up every few years in favor of the next best thing that will turn things around and in LA they threw in the towel on KCBS in favor of KCAL.
  9. Being on set makes such a huge difference—the show is better.
  10. Pittsburgh’s WPCW is set to be branded as KDKA+. Seems contradictory to the push to deemphasize legacy brands. With Neeraj Khemlani out the door, does this mean the end of “CBS News+City” branding? How long until Eyewitness News returns to KYW? https://triblive.com/aande/movies-tv/tv-talk-channel-19-to-re-brand-as-kdka-change-call-letters/
  11. My guess is it will mostly be a two person broadcast with Nydia continuing on weekends.
  12. Talk about throwing your career away….
  13. Was moving NN to 1A deliberate or just a result of there being no room in 30 Rock?
  14. Days hasn’t gone to Peacock to die. It’s one of Peacock’s most streamed series if not the most. And the show that replaced it on NBC is pulling 500,000 less viewers than Days.
