  1. I figured it out. It was my anti-virus software. I have BitDefender, and when I uninstalled it, I was able to access the site again. Sometimes, BitDefender gets messed up a few days after I install it, and I have to reinstall it when that happens. Probably should've kept my Norton subscription.
  2. Not sure if there was already a discussion on this, but does anyone happen to know why the News Music Search Archive has been down for weeks? I wonder if they got hit with copyright issues? This is the message I keep getting when I go to the site.
  3. Fox NFL pregame host Curt Menefee has been named co-host of Good Day New York, effective January 16. https://nypost.com/2024/01/07/sports/fox-nfls-curt-menefee-joining-good-day-new-york-as-co-host/
  4. The Pirates are staying with SportsNet Pittsburgh, and will co-own the network with the Penguins. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/mlb/pirates-penguins-to-jointly-own-cable-tv-sports-channel/ar-AA1lsiCI?ocid=msedgntp&cvid=a61a902803924d59bbe9d66d185dea7c&ei=9&fbclid=IwAR1eafXYE1oKJ_FAYxGJcKRSeuFJN7760BjpFbwekDKZrwsTJ_Ie_tqCO1M
  5. Hi folks, your old pal Steve here. I came back once again to share with you an email that was sent to me from our friend Scott Kimmell regarding some of the post-2010 Hearst Corporation material being taking down from his YouTube channel, including the WGAL material me and a friend donated to him for use on his channel. Here's his response. "WGAL filed a copyright takedown of the October 2023 morning news broadcast. This has resulted in a copyright strike. It will be removed in 90 days. There was no specific part of the video that was targeted, rather it was the entire newscast claimed by WGAL. To be on the safe side, I have privatized all of the WGAL uploads that stem from after 2010. The earlier broadcasts (1989, 1999, and 2006) are still up. I've done similar things to the uploads of the other Hearst-owned stations on my channel, including WLWT, WTAE, WVTM, WISN, WBAL, KSBW, and KQCA. The copies posted of WGAL and other Hearst stations will remain on the Internet Archive for now, unless I get a notice from them." Geez, I never expected WGAL and Hearst to force other YouTubers take down some of their videos on YouTube. Makes me wonder if other broadcasters will eventually follow suit.

  12. Here's an interesting 1975 report from WNBC about the logo conflict involving NBC and Nebraska's NET Commission regarding the use of the trapazoid 'N' logo, as reported by the late Tom Snyder.
