I will agree, usually that is a small-market issue. But budgets do make or break.

Ah, the duopoly is owned by Meredith. About the only owner out there more incompetent than Scripps and Tegna. That speaks volumes!


Using Robinhood for online equities and options trades is a terrible idea. USE A LEGITIMATE BROKER-DEALER INSTEAD! (Fidelity, Schwab, TD Ameritrade, Edward Jones, etc.)

I didn’t realize Meredith bought KTVK until that article. I know they have owned KPHO for years.

As someone who grew up watching WNEM TV5 News, I can truly say I wish Meredith would get out of the broadcasting business. Watching what happened to their news operation there - from being the best, most professional around to a damn near laughing stock with horrible reporters and story telling - is a true testament to their incompetence

I think back to 1976 and Robbie Timmons on CH2 Detroit- CBS had a full-time top notch news operation in a top 10 market, then post-1986 FOX bought all those coveted VHF stations, including Detroit and Cleveland, and then had CBS scrambling for a POS UHF signal and an even crappier news operation.
Who was the sweet woman who was doing weather on 62 with Jim Maddog Maddus, (he was a complete arse to her?) She was in radio, became a Mom and tried broadcasting again to realize that the broadcasting model is totally broken now?
