: I am in full agreement of that statement. The local sports broadcasting is something I'm a huge fan of too. Weigel has smart people inside that work the systems they have available to their maximum potential. There one exception is CBS58 News. They need to get HD *now* and they need to take that news operation more seriously. It's sad when they have all of the CBS News resources and the lead-ins from CBS Primetime that their programs are still doing so horribly.
: : So give Weigel credit for finding creative ways to expand the reach of stations people otherwise likely wouldn't be able to see. The other LPTV stations in town (Ch. 7 and 38) are pretty much invisible.
They do have a new set, and yes, HD newscasts will roll out very soon.
And considering how low-rent the newscast looks, they're actually pretty competitive in the ratings (just below FOX 6). I think most of it is due either to CBS' lineup or the lack of fluff found on the other channels.
