  1. Remember when The WB and UPN Merged and they chose Hi performing stations like Nexstar's predecessor Tribune and CBS' Stations groups? None of the FOX Owned UPN stations in larger markets from the Chris Craft/United Television stations after the company bought it didn't get the CW and they started their network. It flopped 3 years later to become a syndication service and become a shell of their stations and twin-stick with their FOX O&Os. I am curious how the CW will last. If It was Tribune, they would pull the plug on the CW. One of the executives at the Tribune was threatening not to renew their contract with the CW because of their performance.
  2. One of the reasons they are doing it because the CW unexpected unannounced expanded to 7pm on Sundays.
  3. So…about Mark Mester. https://www.instagram.com/p/CtJ6OCsRH4h/?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==
  4. So…about Ex-KTLA’s Mark Mester 7 months ago.. https://www.instagram.com/p/CtJ6OCsRH4h/?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==
  5. Didn’t see that coming after the Lynette Romero/ Mark Mester controversy 6 months ago.
  6. About that transition by the ABC O&O slowly transitioning to the new logo, KABC now got new mic tags. Potentially getting a refresh soon?
  7. Rumor: KTLA joining the likes of KABC, KNBC and KCAL to add a 4PM newscast. Likely there was no room in their streaming newscast since there adding a 4pm newscast. Desperate KTLA didn’t gone to a 2 hour delay like other Nexstar stations excluding WGN and KRON.
  8. Rumor has it is going to be bigger that previous what I heard. I don’t know what’s the new set look like entirely.
  9. Thank god it isn’t the KRON/WFLA set.
  10. The new set will debut sometime before Thanksgiving per Sam Rubin. Likely next week or two.
  11. Does this means new graphics as well. I hope it won’t be pre-existing graphics from other stations.
  12. Based on what he did by the LA Times article, likely not.
  13. “Several sources at the station said it was common knowledge that staffers were concerned about Mester’s temper and what was described as his “disrespectful” behavior to women and had complained to management.” https://www.latimes.com/entertainment-arts/tv/story/2022-09-23/ktla-lynette-romero-mark-mester-timeline
  14. Unfortunately, is a a protocol that if they can’t say goodbye if they are going to another station. But I read that they were going give her farewell but declined because of that competitor. Per LA Times and Mark Mester, likely not going to resurfaced on another station in LA. But another city likely. Mark is very toxic off air especially in their newsroom.
  15. Looks like never or likely resurfaced anywhere.
  16. After I read the LA Times article, Mark Mester is a joke right now. A very sloppy joke. I still miss Chris Burrous. If Chris was still alive, I would still watch.
  17. Well this is going to be bumpy. Buckle Up. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2022/9/21/source-la-anchor-lawyers-up
  18. Mark Mester is suspended from the station. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2022/9/18/la-anchor-suspended
  19. Which means not the GM’s and or ND’s fault but blame corporate at the top.
  20. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2022/9/15/crossing-the-street-in-la
  21. Wow desperate her bio getting scrubbed on the website and anchors can talk about it further, I know it was her choice to leave the station. But don’t know why management didn’t let her to announce that week to say goodbye. Very bad move by management.
  22. Just found what some of the O&Os (I.e KABC, KGO WLS) logo will look like. Yes this may be official.
