  1. Sinclair considering selling 30% of its station portfolio plus the Tennis channel https://www.cnbc.com/2024/05/09/sinclair-explores-selling-30percent-of-broadcast-stations.html
  2. Launching a new RSN in 2024 - this can only go poorly
  3. Only took a year and a half to be resolved.
  4. New cnn boss looking to cut anchor salaries as part of savings https://www.thewrap.com/cnn-looks-to-slash-budgets-star-salaries-as-mark-thompson-digs-in/
  5. I do see your point. However I would argue that CNN has failed in the mornings for 20 years and so maybe the lighter flair of Robin would have led to something more successful than what CNN has been doing. I’m sure robin could be serious if the situation called for it.
  6. They could have saved so much headache if they just moved Robin Meade to CNN instead of letting her go.
  7. a reminder that Cox has been in dispute with dish since October 2022. Don’t expect a quick settlement
  8. Dish has dropped KASW. I can only assume this is because Scripps wanted higher retrans fees for the station now that they carry Coyotes games and Dish told them to take a hike.
  9. yeah - the talent opens aren't that good. The transitions don't match the music and it's too busy / crowded. Why WABC insists on holding onto them I'll never know. They did the same thing with their 2012 package, butcher a good open by cramming talent shots into the open.
  10. remember when Tribune rebranded all of their CW stations to deemphasize The CW affiliation? It’s never been a ratings winner and never will be
  11. Those poor people. Time to dust off the résumé
  12. If I had to bet Gray wanted more money because now KTVK carries Suns games
  13. You can see this from there "hello clinton" special last week, they posted it on their website https://www.kwqc.com/video/2023/10/27/hello-clinton-live-clinton-6-pm-pt-5/
  14. interesting that the Scripps AZ CW stations don’t appear to be involved with this. I guess the network commitments made it impossible
  15. DirecTV is warning cnn that cnn max is risks violating their carriage agreement https://www.nytimes.com/2023/10/03/business/media/directv-cnn-streaming-service-deal.html
  16. And sadly with bean counter Zaslov in charge it’s highly unlikely that CNNi will be able to recapture any of its former glory the gutting of HLN is the most bizarre to me as you could easily make a low cost operation with repeated or repeating news on rotation. Total failure of corporate leadership and lack of vision. Sometimes I really wonder how different things would be of Ted had never sold to TimeWarner
  17. Once they got wpga in Macon (a stand alone metv station with no other purpose) it was clear they were launching some kind of statewide project
  18. Wtoc in action. They’ve appeared to have dropped “live local now” and brought back their old slogan “the southeast news leader” in the open
  19. KTRK has the new graphics https://youtu.be/6zF3AnfFThM?si=XiKVcfXEMtA3Se_I
  20. James Murdoch would be the son that wanted to go more towards a “straight News” approach. He was push out of the company in a power struggle with Lachlan
