  1. You're entitled to your opinion. Just remember why ordinary folks are bashing and second guessing the media... because they're injecting careless and opinions to fit their narrative. Just like what you're doing.
  2. And how does this worthless comment have anything to do with television news? Hope you feel vindicated.
  3. CNN is still on television, color me shocked! First time tuning to their channel in the past little while, and it's so refreshing to see such objective, non-biased reporting in their chyrons. (rolls eyes) Doesn't matter what your politics are, if you care anything about this business, you should realize how bad this looks towards the profession. Report without bias first, ask questions later, and share opinions late at night.
  4. Not to stick my head in, but I think it's an important note that was made by the original user's post. First before you or anyone else attacks me for my opinion, my true profound thoughts are with the tri-state area, and our entire country and World as we suffer through this unthinkable disaster. We will overcome and we will become stronger from this as a nation. However, it is very important to note that this is a valid point. CNN and Jeff Zucker love to sensationalize the story. Think about "The Boy Who Cried Wolf." This is exactly what CNN, along with all of the other cable news channels, have been doing for the past few years. Credibility has been thrown out of the window, and now if this is true, some people will be skeptical about it. Put it into perspective - many local news personalities (WABC, WCBS, etc) have been diagnosed and tragically died from this disease. Nobody would ever think they would make up a false case for their talent, because as we all know, local news is trustworthy and has credibility. The difference is cable vs. local, and the credibility issue is a very valid point. Stay safe and stay home!
  5. Random question, not sure if this is the right place to post. When it comes to 30 Rock's NBC operations, I noticed there's no satellite dishes on the top of the building, just the doppler. Is everything fibered or microwaved in from another location? I noticed CNBC in New Jersey has quite the dish farm at their facilities, maybe microwaved in from there? Many thanks.
  6. First of all, my thoughts and prayers to everyone in Nashville killed and impacted by the tornadoes. WTVF's Sky 5 chopper (N5TV) is based out of the John Tune Airport (JWN). That airport was severely impacted and took a direct hit by the tornadoes. NC5 was airing live footage from a chopper earlier today, courtesy of handheld video shot from the door of a Chopper. According to FlightAware, this was not N5TV their chopper. N90CL was shuttled from St. Louis to Nashville this afternoon and is now providing live footage for WTVF. Might be safe to say either Sky 5 is damaged, or inaccessible.
  7. Great work for the list, that's awesome! Thank you for it. One clarification. KTTV and KCBS/KCAL share 1 chopper both in the morning and evening, so only 1 is flying at a time for them. KTTV has Rick Dickert up for their morning show, while KCBS is using the feed from the same chopper for their morning show. In the evening, Stu Mundel for KCBS is up there, while KTTV is just using the feed from the same chopper. N12YJ is the back up for all ACA, usually KTLA. N61HL also needs to be added for ACA as a backup. Sorry, I edited my original post to show ACA info above.
  8. Helinet: N71HD is KABC's main Air 7 HD since 2005, with the branding scheme. It is not used by any other station for video feed or on-air reporting. This ship has the Shotover camera for the MapTracking system. Helinet, the provider for KABC/KCBS/KCAL/KTTV/KMEX always flip flops whatever backup choppers they have, as needed. N828AP is one of Helinet's newest A-Stars, and that is now used as the primary backup ship for KABC. It was the first to have the call sign taken off of the online tracking servers. N828AP is in a black color scheme, and is occasionally used for outside production purposes. KABC also has their old original 1995 "Air 7" N67TV, which is in the grey paint scheme. Since N828AP has been in use, N67TV has been used as a backup for all of the Helinet stations, as well as outside production purposes. In the photo KABC posted 5 years ago, N67TV is seen on the right hand side. Those KABC logos are never on there. N111FN and N211FN used to be the sold KTTV ships. N111FN was destroyed at VNY a few years back. Now, it's a toss up between whatever is flying. KTTV in the morning can use N211FN or N29HD with Rick Dickert reporting. KCBS/KCAL with Stu Mundel uses the same ship usually in the evening for their reports. N29HD is the preferred ship, as it has the "Shotover" camera which allows for the MapTracking. As for N29FX, that's also a backup ship used by whoever. It's the oldest A-Star in the fleet, so just used when needed. Welk Aviation formerly Angel City Air: KTLA uses N925TV, which was recently repainted in a blue paint scheme, similar branding look to their news trucks. In recent times, KTLA's primary backup is N12YJ. N12YJ is unbranded and is unique because the camera controls are "shotgun" up front with the pilot, not in the backseat. Both choppers are based out of Pacoima. KNBC uses N358TV as News Chopper 4 Alpha and it's based out of Pacoima. KNBC News Chopper 4 Bravo is based out of Fullerton base, and it's normally N29LW. This chopper is unbranded. Welk Aviation used to have N1231A also as a backup, but it's being used by NBC in Boston. Last but not least, N61HL is still around (the former Sky 9 bird) and it's used as an unbranded spare for Welk Aviation. You can log onto http://www.adsbexchange.com/ and see all of the tail numbers un-blocked, when they're flying.
  9. KTLA's Sky 5 helicopter N925TV has been out for the past couple of weeks getting refurbishments. She's back now to match all of the KTLA fleet vehicles and branding, looking bright blue!
  10. Unlike others who seem to hate living in this country, I personally think that playing the national anthem is a welcome sight on television. We should be proud for the freedoms that we have living in the United States of America, and we shouldn't be afraid to show it for a few moments during the broadcast day. I doubt those of you who are opposed to this will even be watching television during the time the anthem plays. We'll see if any other broadcasters follow suit!
  11. Why would he return to KFMB when he had a "not so ceremonious" exit? Seems likely to me he's talking about turmoil going on inside one of the newsrooms here and him not making a return to television. He's thrown in the towel on meteorology reporting.
  12. You must be fun at parties.
  13. It's C-FNPQ, a R44 naturally. Former recent CIII-TV Global News chopper, as well as previously for sister Corus radio station AM640 CFMJ, and further back as CHCH's chopper. "Chopper 680" has been flying since the start of the month for the radio, now ready for the technical side of City. Port side has 680 News logos, while the Starboard side has the CityNews logos. Slowly getting back in the game City, sadly still without a pulse.
  14. Could Mediaite at least *try* to hide their biases? That short statement from Steve Cohen doesn't even admit defeat or backtracking from KUSI. And you all wonder why CNN and all of these media companies are called Fake News? Then KUSI does *1* little thing, oh god what a disaster; state run propaganda! Oh but it's ok, CNN, MSNBC, and everyone else can continue their TrumpBash2K20 all day long. DOA.
  15. Ya just can't please everyone... Congratulations to WBFF, wonderful looking set, new graphics look very chic as well.
  16. And yet they (CNN) still run the promos constantly saying they're the "Most Trusted Name in News..." They actually think people believe that? I get the whole money revenue aspect here, but come on. You can't possibly think a majority people buy into that in this day and age. Everyone is guilty of bias, not passing the buck on any cable channel here, but it is very idiotic to see CNN still running these spots and then going on entertainment coverage 24 hours a day. Even on their daytime blocks which are supposed to be filled with news affecting this country, the times that I tune into CNN or MSNBC, it is always Brooke Baldwin blabbing about something to do with politics or breaking down and crying over a mean word someone said. FOX is not perfect either, yes they have their biases totally as well during daytime news blocks, but I see much more emphasis on news during their midday blocks. Evenings, forget about it for any channel, that is the time for the opinions to shine... let them have that time to speak their mind. Have at it, attack on another with clearly marked opinion commentary. Maybe throw in a news break here in there like FNC does (in all fairness I am not sure if CNN or MSNBC or any other cable channel does that news break, but please let me know if they do.) In the daytime when news should be superior, it is not for CNN from what I have seen. You continuously blast the other side pretty much 24 hours a day for the past 3 years, then get a 180 character "Tweet" and flip out wondering why you are always the target? You don't have to agree with the other side, that is fine. But constantly attacking, trying to de-legitimize people, and literally creating fake news is not gonna get you praise. Yelling pointless questions up a 2 story building during a potentially tense meeting/negotiations between a hostile country isn't helping your point. Having a fit on television isn't getting your point.... just laughing stock of the internet maybe. Who knows, maybe people will actually change your opinion of you if you change your ways... oh wait you've already fell off the cliff too long ago... I used to want to work in the media, and a certain person might remember that here. How my eyes have opened up to this sad state of television. There are many other factors why I have also changed my mind, don't get me wrong, but this has got to be a big part.
  17. He's been on KNSD for more than a month now.
  18. 10 News, Stories that Matter. Will they have a follow up to this story tomorrow on "10News This Morning", their 10News Mobile App (download today, free from the app store), 10News at 11 AM, The Now at 4 PM, and 10News at 5, 6, 7, and tonight first thing at 11 PM???? I can't hardly wait to find out what kind of studio shot angle they will use. Do we need to issue a Breaking News Alert? Will the Breaking News Tracker be dispatched?? Is Sky 10 "first" over the scene??? FIND OUT AFTER THE BREAK.
  19. Well what do we have here... another refugee, I mean freelancer rescued by KNSD now. Let's see what happens to Robert with this gig.
  20. It's been ages since I've turned on KGTV, and I see *this* tonight on the anchor desk in the studio. And who the hell are all of these new robotic "fresh out of college" reporters? It's like every single Fresno and Bakersfield reporter has been teleported to 10... In other news I was Downtown earlier and saw poor Steve Fiorina knocked out and sleeping in the front of their live truck near the Federal Building around 2:30 PM. Get him out of his misery already!

  21. Llarisa Aubreu has joined KNSD filling in their weekend weather position. She comes from AccuWeather in State College where she has been for the last 3 years. Her first broadcast was yesterday. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1271028089642762
  22. Anyone know what's up with this? Few days ago, was driving on the freeway and spotted a older series KGTV van, still sporting the older graphics and paint scheme. No mast or any equipment on the roof, and it looked like it hadn't had a wash in a long time. No chance to take a photo, but it was the exact same one (or similar) to this photo taken in 2015. I really doubt it's owned by KGTV still, although with them you never know. And if it was privately owned, wouldn't KGTV take off all branding (as well as the microwave dishes and equipment) before selling it? [MEDIA=flickr]15925648763[/MEDIA]
  23. Kristina Audencial posted that Chris will be her new co-anchor on the morning show. Raoul and Shally aren't going anywhere, so my only guess is that Fox 5 is doing split anchors on their morning show. They're shooting promos today, I'll see if more info comes out.
  24. KTLA just came back on air. Their in studio background monitor is showing a sky blue color, and the anchor shot is poor in quality, definitely not HD. Newsroom and live shot quality is normal HD. Several monitors aren't working as well as the newsroom teleprompter isn't working.
