Weekend Anchor

Weekend Anchor (3/8)



  1. I don't think they're filling in for free. Whether or not they're getting paid salary or not, I would assume they would get some kind of bonus for doing the extra work, besides getting the national exposure.
  2. I remember what it was like back then in the late 80s and early 90s. It was weird to see Paul Johnson working 7 days a week. I think the stations didn't view it necessary at the time to have many weather anchors, when one of the 2 news anchors could just read to the viewers what the weather was or will be. Later in the mid 90s when the stations started to invest more in their newscast did they hire more meteorologist or weather anchors.
  3. In my view, the background screen for the station in Los Angeles seems not clear at times, while at other times, the live feed of wherever the location is appears to be slow. Does anyone else notice that?
  4. Back when NBC had the rights to the NBA in 2002, why would they not offer more $ to keep NBA than losing it. They had a cable channel with cnbc & bravo TV back then. They could have put games on cable as well as on NBC and charge customers back then to watch the games.
  5. Why is Leslie Sykes getting a reduced role now? Is there something wrong with her, healthwise?
  6. If wbd doesn't get part of the deal, they're probably gonna file a lawsuit. I don't think they will have a case. NBC can offer what wbd can't, which is broadcasting on regular tv while paying more $.
  7. It doesn't appear NBC will be cutting back in prime time programming from recent reports. Also, they plan on getting NBA rights back. With that, it will help them reduce their scripted programming and allow them to shift shows to other nights where they don't have sports programming.
  8. I wonder why with all the stations, the main 2 colors that I see during their newscast are blue and white with the graphics. Why is that?
  9. Other shows that were not doing well on NBC, should be given a chance to continue another season on peacock, especially if they were on the borderline, like Quantlum Leap. This was a show they were also producing, instead of being canceled. I understand the ratings were lower, but there were fans that were upset that this show was canceled.
  10. Since Olivia Garvey join the station, will they create a new sports show with Mario & Olivia following NFL & their college football coverage. They're also probably going to get rights to the NBA soon as well. It would make sense that they would create a new local sports program. I don't like program the challenge.
  11. Since Comcast is a cable company, why wouldn't they want to put some NBA games on USA network along with the show Inside the NBA, if they do get part of the deal?
  12. Since the show is successful, I don't think NBC or AMAZON will let it end. One of them will probably pick up the show. If NBC gets it, they'll probably put it on CNBC / USA Network or Peacock.
  13. Has anyone heard of an update?
  14. Maybe there's a possibility that the two companies can split the cost and the rights of the remaining part of the deal. That way, the NBA will still get their increase in the rights fee and both wbd & NBC get a piece of the package.
  15. Why does the article say that wcvb is an NBC affiliate when it's an ABC affiliate?
