Station Group CEO (8/8)



  1. KTVY (now-KFOR) from sometime in early 1982 https://youtube.com/watch?v=Wye7QRf4hn0&si=3lWn9SiB1dcbyn2Z
  2. And Judge Lopez has ordered Diamond to pay the affected teams in full within 5 days So buckle your seatbelts folks, things is about to get very interesting in a hurry.
  3. The News 9 Now subchannel is having major technical difficulties, can't even replay the main stations Noon show as well. This is all part of this move, they have to get the kinks worked out.
  4. The current KWTV facilities will not be torn down. In fact Griffin Media is donating EVERYTHING in the current building to Langston University with Langston set to move it's Journalism Program to the Kelley Ave Studios in January
  5. Just looking at this thread and honestly, Perry must be high on Sudafed drugs if he thinks he's going to get live sports on the CW. Many of the major sports contracts are locked up until the late 20s and heading into the 2030s (even local/regional rights deals are locked into that same timeframe) so how's he going to get them? NEWSFLASH: He can't
  6. KTEN from 1994 and it features a minute long news intro
  7. Which means that there is a distinct possibility that both Standard General and Apollo gets nailed by the FCC for lack of candor. I know for certain looking at previous documents both with this deal and when Apollo acquired Cox a few years back there was no mention of them doing business in the Cayman Islands, British Virgin Islands or Bermuda.
  8. According to the SEC filing there is a termination fee of $163 million and to address @GoldenShine9's question about when Tegna could terminate this deal, the earliest they could get out of the deal with Standard is in May of next year.
  9. That's a big one right there. I literally had no idea that Kim/Standard never bothered to address Apollo's involvement with this deal to the FCC.
  10. Keep in mind too that when the set was built originally, they were doing SportsCenter literally from 9am Eastern until 2am Eastern, now it's totally different.
  11. I have a theory in mind that I'm going to take over to Speculatron 9000 regarding Cox (what's left of it) and Graham
  12. The fact that Graham Media has filled a petition to deny this merger says a lot about where this merger could be heading towards. I've never seen Graham this much outspoken for or against a merger of a competitor, ever.
  13. Is the way we consume television changing? Yeah absolutely but, the more I think of Myron's ideas the more I think that's asking for a lot of people to be placed out of work and at a time where local news matters the most we don't need anymore people losing their jobs due to cutbacks and such that comes from mergers than what it already is just because "oh local news is dying we need to shut down the whole news department!!!!" That's nonsense the way I look at it.
  14. That's weird because it worked just fine on my end. Usually Weeters is on there and I know Myron has been frequenting this particular thread I can simply private message them and let them know what's going on.
  15. And now we have our first look at the Comprehensive Exibit on the deal. Some of the notable highlights: We're seeing a good ole facility swap in Dallas No divestitures are being addressed The WFXT group is tentively called Teton (and it looks like it's somewhat connected to Cox I'm not sure about that one) Either way I probably got confused reading that whole exhibit.
