WAVE was a Raycom station, Raycom and Gray have merged. 

With Gray now owning a station in every market serving a part of Kentucky, I would look for WAVE to take over all of the politics reporting and WKYT to take over all of the Wildcats reporting and the same reports and reporters showing up statewide.

I guess ownership takes precedence over network affiliation. I'm sure we see some of the same with WSAZ, which is also Gray but is NBC as well. I think Gray's Knoxville affiliate is NBC as well.

No the Gray station in Knoxville is CBS just like WKYT.  Their ABC is Nextar and their NBC is TEGNA.

And it completely slipped my mind that the Raycom stations are now Gray!  Now every market serving SC except for the Upstate is served by a Gray station, because all of the former Raycom stations are now joined by Augustaís legacy-Gray WRDW (CBS) and WAGT (NBC) (whose studios are actually just across the river in North Augusta, SC).

Also donít forget that the new Gray Kentucky network of WAVE, WKYT, WYMT, and WSAZ should also include WXIX Cincinnati, WBKO Bowling Green, WFIE Evansville, and KFVS Cape Girardeau.  That should cover just about the entire state except for Hopkinsville, which is technically still in the Nashville market.

Here is an update on the Cox/ Apollo talks.

While I canít say I am surprised about splitting the assets, it remains to be seen if the deals to acquire assets from Nexstar and Northwest go through.

Apollo is also named to get the divested Nexstar stations.

Yeah that was mentioned in the links you shared on this forum, no need to mention it here.

Greta Van Susteren does Must Runs on Gray owned Stations.

Thus adding to the popular train of thought in my part of the world that WKYT and WYMT are liberal media outlets.

(Greta was Fox's token liberal prime-time analyst. Hannity was conservative and O'Reilly was middle-of-the-road.)

When I read the Article I saw this as Gray trying to do must runs as ratings ploy to go after Sinclair though. I know in Reno you have Gray's KOLO competing against KRNV a Sinclair station. In the past two years we hear of Sinclair grabbing national attention for Must Runs with Boris Epstein. Now Gray is going to do Must runs that will air on WOIO, Cleveland, KOLO Reno and Hawaii News Now.

I didn't see anything in the "Variety" piece saying they'd be producing must-runs with her.

In this report the article says two shows for Gray though.

Unfortunately Apollo/Cox did not get any of them, and there is some cause for concern at the FCC over the buy-back option concerning WPIX.

San Francisco TV news in the 1970's.


I was watching a WBBM promo from the late 70s or early 80s and thought "it's just like Anchorman!" and then I thought "well, yeah; that's probably what they were going for."

My favorite is this one from Sacratomato in 1982, with a, shall we say, very familiar face to those of you in the New York metropolitan area who listen to him schmooze on certain sports talk radio station. And what's with the afro already?
