Re: Oakland A's ditching radio,, move to streaming only

A Sacramento sports figure (same guy who owned the WLAF Sacramento Surge/CFL Sacramento Gold Miners) actually started building a baseball stadium out by Arco Arena...the presumed goal was to make a run at the A's. It sat unfinished for years, until it was filled in. Over in West Sacramento, a bridge...

Re: Oakland A's ditching radio,, move to streaming only

The Oakland A's were on Salem's "860-AM The Answer" KTRB San Francisco, a conservative/Christian talker last season. After reading this article, it sounds like the station manager was surprised and disappointed that the A's chose not to renew with KTRB for a second season. I think the nature of KTR...

Re: Surprising programming change upcoming to WGN America; 3 hour national newscast to debut

Speaking of WGN America and Canada, it aired CTV's "Corner Gas" for a year or two.

As far as Nexstar canning CLTV, it is simple to explain - they are focusing on WGN news-wise. They have already added some news and sports shows to Channel 9...

Re: CTV News Windsor

I touched on this earlier, wondering why CBMT was so widely available on Michigan cable systems outside of the Detroit area - instead of CBET.

I believe the answer basically boiled down to easy satellite availability of CBMT...

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

Oh, I am sure they will update sets and graphics at some point. Probably after the Nexstar/whoever ends up with them dust settles. (Does Nexstar have a chain wide graphics style?) But there's no hurry. WJW could put their news team on a barren set with hand-written graphics and still be #1. Yes the...

Fox 8 News in the Morning is beyond dominant here. It is a ratings machine.

Re: Gray/Raycom deal officially done, WTOL now a Tegna station

There's a Toledo Blade column that says this is an online-only video, part of a Toledo Public Schools-led campaign to motivate students. (Sorry, lost the link.)

Still a bad "look", but there is the context...

Re: Is Verizon F-ing Me?

I moved to a Moto X4, still on Verizon prepaid. Got it on sale at a low price of sub-$150.

But it is unlocked, and very much Fi compatible if I decide to go that route.

Re: Is Verizon F-ing Me?

Thr Verizon branded prepaid G4 Play doesn't support either VoLTE or international TravelPass. I got an E4 for VoLTE, and had to move to an E5 Play for TravelPass. Any newer ones should work fine.

Re: Cable systems that do not carry all network affiliates from their home DMA

Buckeye's Sandusky, OH system is missing a few stations from its home market (Cleveland). WQHS, WMFD, WRLM, WNEO/WEAO, and WDLI (now a glorified subchannel of WVPX, which IS carried) aren't carried. WMFD has very little cable coverage in the Cleveland DMA outside of its natural home area, though it...
