Re: WNWO (NBC) Toledo granted FCC license for new 275 kW DTV transmitter.

Speaking of WNWO, I noticed they replaced Stadium with Charge! on one of its subchannels. Not a total loss I thought (Stadium is offered on several streaming platforms). When did that happen? Must've been a few days ago. Buckeye Broadband already has the new logo up and such. Would rather have "Ant...

Re: Antenna TV gone?

TeddyBear, what's the scoop with Pluto TV? Free (other than paying for video data) for shows with a ton of commercials? No current big 4 networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox) I assume? It's CBS owned. They run spots. You see Late Big 4 shows, late cable shows and allot of reuns. Pluto almost resembles a re...

Re: Antenna TV gone?

WMYD-TV 20 Detroit and it's subchannels are only available on Buckeye Broadband on the Michigan side of the border, namely Bedford township. Yep, Bedford Township is practically the furthest Buckeye can offer the Detroit channels these days (and I'm about a half mile from the state line). Just curi...

Re: Toledo Riot/Looting

Apparently, Mayor Wade didn't get the word out about the Toledo curfew- question is: will any of the Toledo news media get any coverage of the Target store looting on Alexis Road? I'm confused. No protests there that I'm aware of. Why Target? Probably because that was the store they looted in Minne...

Re: Classic commercials WWJ TV 1977

I'm reminded of how much black there was between commercial events back in the day. A good one or two seconds. These days transitions are flash cut frame-to-frame. The advent of digital servers made it possible to eliminate any pause between one spot and the next. The idea is to run the break in co...

Re: WTVG 13 NBC News Noon Report (9/18/1981)

Yep, I was in 136 Huron back in the early 70's as a kid, and the giant radio studios of WSPD had already left Huron Street and moved to "more modern" aka much smaller studios (no live bands or studio audience seating) Superior Street around 1962, so it was only TV studios there at the time, and bac...

Re: WTVG 13 NBC News Noon Report (9/18/1981)

Watching this again, I suppose this was when the station was on Huron St in the "Broadcast Building". I almost wanted to visit inside the building but didn't want to disturb the current tenants of it.

Re: WTVG 13 NBC News Noon Report (9/18/1981)

Gordon Ward is a good newsman, anchor, and local personality. He taught Diane Larson how to run the Noon news when she was a hottie with a perm fresh out of college. Prior to the Noon report, Gordon Ward was co-anchor of the evening WSPD-TV 'Venner-Ward' report which was true old-school TV in 1969 ...

Re: Channel-Sharing, Canadian Style

I wish the CRTC would treat subchannels as if they were part of the primary station. I would really like to see some Canadian diginets! Maybe CBC could have a Canadian reruns diginet (akin to Me TV, but Canadian). And maybe we could enjoy some SCTV (take off hoser!) Alas, Canadian cord cutters have...

WTVG 13 NBC News Noon Report (9/18/1981)

Thought I'd share this rare recording of WTVG's noon newscast from almost 40 years ago. Amazing what they could get from having one anchor for the entire thing.

St. Johns, NL
London, ON

Re: Channel-Sharing, Canadian Style

If I remember correctly, Global's signal *is* nulled towards Detroit, and yes, it is the most difficult Canadian station for me to pick up, because of that. Don't' fret if you don't receive it, because I often have difficulty tuning in, too! I used to get ch. 22 back in the analog days once in a wh...
