  1. I honestly think that WBAY has the best 24/7 weather subchannel in the entire country. Almost 20 years later and still going strong. Also, WSAW Wausau adopted that "Every 7 Minutes" format not too long ago recently as well.
  2. They launched that like a year or two ago I believe so it is not new at all.
  3. Bingo. WSVN wants nothing to do with the FOX branding outside of airing FOX network programming, live sports, and their promos. When it comes to national news coverage, WSVN has always done it themselves, maybe with the exception of the SOTU address every year, and there has been a handful of times where WSVN would rather carry live coverage from CNN (via their affiliation with CNN Newsource) than FOX News Channel (from FOX NewsEdge). Bingo. That's how WSVN 7 operates and they want to keep it that way. After all, they're not FOX 7 for a reason. I happen to live in the only media market in Florida where our FOX affiliate doesn't go by your standard typical FOX branding and that's how they look at when it comes to news as well. It won't change anytime soon, y'all, and they probably won't even mention FOX at all outside their new building in Miramar come 2026.
  4. Having watched WSVN 7 as my preferred news station for 19 years now, this is exactly true. Also, they RARELY run FOX News packages from FOX NewsEdge, if ever. And when they do, they make them use custom tagouts so that its 7 News and not FOX News (for example, for Madeline Rivera, a correspondent for FOX News Edge, she would say... in Washington, Madeline Rivera, 7 News. She would never say FOX News on reports sent for WSVN.). And yes, WSVN mainly does their own coverage for national news stories, including the Biden presser from yesterday. They rarely take anything national from FOX News.
  5. I'll respond. First off, welcome aboard since I can tell this is your first post. And second, no. I believe The Good Morning Show from WFMY-TV Greensboro is the first early local morning newscast in the United States. That program has been on since December 1957.
  6. Troy was a popular meteorologist for like 15+ years at WKMG-TV Orlando. He used to work in OKC before that I believe and was a chief at one point at KLRT Little Rock when their news operations got going in 2004 (when KLRT was separate from KARK at the time).
  7. I like anchors sitting on a desk... but NOT on Citytv.
  8. I mean... WGN hired a then-newcomer morning meteorologist from Rockford almost eight years ago. She jumped from market #137 to market #3 and I think people criticized that because she wasn't market-ready to go from small market Rockford to big market Chicago. Today, Morgan Kolkmeyer is one of the best home run decisions WGN made to hire for their morning news program within the past decade. I wouldn't have known her otherwise had she not gone to WGN.
  9. It's Nice to Come Home... to TV 3! (KORK-TV Las Vegas, better known as KVBC and today's KSNV).
  10. Never. KRIV did so first and has been doing one... since 2010.
  11. Damn. I loved Kelly. I thought she was great and very versatile.
  12. Maybe this has something to do with it now that KAPP/KVEW has him. https://www.applevalleynewsnow.com/users/profile/austin reed/?fbclid=IwAR3N6x-077_xEKeFFOZbs-j9InPUknXKAOEbF8UYiEVMUbH6bkvupqXbnm0
  13. If I remember correctly, it was the entire day with the worst in the morning.
  14. Yeah, no. WSVN is all hard news, traffic and weather, business, and even morning sports updates from 5-11 a.m.
  15. Hard news. No interviews, no fluff. Its straight news the entire time from 5-11 a.m. WSVN is a station that doesn't do heavy fluff.
  16. Leading to six live hours of morning news from 5-11 a.m.
  17. Hahaha. I love that Spongebob moment but it sounds true for what's happening to WADL right now.
  18. The weeknight 10, 10:30, and 11pm newscasts are now Scrippscasts.
  19. I'm bringing this back up because Marcelle and Jim are joining KADN/KLAF in the new year to anchor their 5:00, 6:00, and 10:00pm newscasts. https://www.kadn.com/news/the-switch-is-on-the-new-year-will-bring-a-new-station-for-2-familiar/article_059cee46-6c59-11ee-b689-e7532e6a4f7b.html
  20. The weekend early-evening ones are no surprise... Saturdays at 6:00 and Sundays at 6:30pm.
  21. Oh yes, he did. I believe he joined WWOR around '97 or '98, under Chris-Craft ownership then.
  22. Ernie never worked for WPIX's news department.
  23. From the schedules I've seen, yes. Thanks for the promotion. Later tonight or early tomorrow, the first posts will be up. (I don't mean going off topic here, sorry. Hahaha.)
