Does Sinclair actually own KATV yet? The station channel, website, FCC Public Profile, etc. appears (as of Monday 9/8) to still look like its owned by Allbritton. Where's the changes? What's taking so long?

KATV = Sinclair Broadcasting. NOT NOW DEFUNCT Allbritton.

Yeah, that's like a director, camera operator or engineer getting a mention.

Rare.

In other news, Mark Rose farted when he heard Rob was leaving. There's no word on the severity of Mark's gas situation.

Sources close to the situation say Mark's condition could possibly be contagious, as personnel around the station seem to unable to give a shit.

Erin is ignorant. She will hang herself.

@10:08, unfortunately, probably not. A giant precedent is in place to praise anchors when things go right, and blame everyone else when things go wrong. It's the catch 22 of KATV.

Don't eat MJ's popcorn just because Erin is now finally what she always thought she was.

It has been pleasant seeing more Dover than Janelle lately. Maybe KATV is finally getting it...

Wonder if the person that controls the video on news stories at KATV has quit. Video clipped out on a sports feature last night. Pitiful.

KARK had distorted audio on a story about Dunbar Jr. High School tonight at 5p. Pitiful.

Hey, it's a management dream. Reporters doing their own camera and audio. Look at the money that is being saved.

Sully controls the video on sports features himself. So no, he has not quit.
