NEWS! From wtop.com: Baltimore state’s attorney complains to FCC about TV station’s coverage... Baltimore’s state’s attorney is complaining to the Federal Communications Commission about the local Fox affiliate over its news department’s coverage. In a letter to the FCC last week, Marilyn Mosby’s communications director, Zy Richardson, writes that WBFF-TV’s stories “could reasonably be categorized as blatantly slanted, dishonest, misleading, racist, and extremely dangerous,” and he asks the FCC’s acting chairwoman, Jessica Rosenworcel, to “take action as soon as possible.” The letter claims that the station — which is owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group — did 248 stories solely about the state’s attorney, while Baltimore’s three other network affiliates did, in total, less than a third — 82. “While the frequency of coverage in question by the WBFF would give any reasonable person pause, it is the tone of the coverage that violates the FCC rules,” writes Richardson, who singles out six stories from 2020 in that letter. WBFF, Richardson writes, has “become a megaphone that amplifies, encourages and provides fodder for racists … to continue sending hate mail and death threats.” She cites an incident from 2014, in which a report featured a deceptively edited video that appeared to show racial-justice protesters chanting “kill a cop.” (WBFF later fired the reporter and videographer involved.) One FCC commissioner, Brendan Carr, issued a statement Monday that said the FCC “should dismiss this complaint with prejudice by the end of today.” It was a sentiment echoed by the executive director of the Radio Television Digital News Association, Dan Shelley. In a letter Monday to Rosenworcel, he says that local journalists “have a constitutionally guaranteed obligation to serve their communities,” and that the six stories cited in Richardson’s letter do not back her claims. “To the contrary, they reveal that Ms. Mosby either declined the station’s offers to comment in its news stories or did include comments sought by the station in response to its inquiries,” Shelley wrote. Mosby and her husband, Nick, are currently the focus of a federal criminal investigation. In a statement release on its website, the station stands by its reporting. “FOX45 News is committed to investigating corruption in public officials, asking tough questions and holding leaders accountable,” the statement said. “Our award-winning investigative unit is a key part of delivering that commitment. While we understand that it may not be popular with the individuals and institutions upon which we are shining a light, we stand by our reporting.”
Not mocking you because you watch news programs, mocking you because you're an idiot. Have you read what you have written about your lost 15 minutes of Like Loves Lolly? FCC rules rule! "Local" and "community", the FCC's terms, do NOT equal "minority". I'm in LPTV's corner because idiots are against them.

I'm curious as to what is happening with WRDE. I live in Easton, MD and can't currently pick up WRDE but I was told years ago we should be able to pick it up when they start broadcasting WBOC-LD from the WCEM-FM station they bought in Cambridge, MD. I guess that never happened because I still can't pick it up. Now when you look at the coverage map for WBOC-DL it's broadcasting on channel 22 from Delaware, not Cambridge. It still appears to cover Easton but not as good as it did when it was from Cambridge. Does anyone know if any of this will actually happen? The best station to get here with an antenna is Channel 4 from DC, WBAL is next to impossible for me to pick up with an antenna so I was hoping for this WRDE years ago.
"Had you read the FCC's Report and Order adopting this new rule (or any new rule), you'd know that the rule doesn't take effect until 30 days AFTER it is published in the Federal Register." Wait, what? The Foreign Radio Guy is wrong about the FCC? Imagine my surprise. And some guy is still complaining about missing 15 minutes of King of Queens Loves Son of Sam? Fifteen minutes...

Sorry to post again Gus needs to be silenced my complaint about our Tv stations preempting parts of programs when theres storms or other events like on past Christmas days when theres an NBA game on ABC WJLA has preempted Jeporady not even airing it later they have new episodes even on Christmas.Though this year because they were burning off the final episodes with Alex Trebek they aiired it at 2 AM the following morning.I suppose youll make fun of Jeporady too. This is not silly complaints its sensible plus Mike Wallace has been dead for years this site is getting riducolous with insults mainly from one person. Mocking someone because they watch news programs what a moron.
The Washington Nationals DO NOT pick their TV broadcasters. They are hired by MASN and approved by the Nationals. The only exception is Dan Kolko who was fired by MASN and then hired by the ball club to do a little of the pre and post game shows.
NextGen TV is supposed to launch in June in Baltimore, but the FCC still hasn’t acted on the application for all of Baltimore’s TV stations to switch to ATSC 3.0 (except WJZ 13). Is the FCC going to turn the application down on a technicality? I’m starting to wonder. Baltimore is a special case market due to the extremely low number of TV stations considering the market size. I can’t see too many other ways of pulling this off without leaving Maryland Public TV out in the cold. It would be sad if the FCC punishes an entire market just to get even with Sinclair.
RE: "WZHF 1390 AM owned by Arthur Liu is carrying the Russian Programming Propaganda and Translator 105.5 FM owned by John Garziglia are not complying with this new FCC Rule." Had you read the FCC's Report and Order adopting this new rule (or any new rule), you'd know that the rule doesn't take effect until 30 days AFTER it is published in the Federal Register. The rule was adopted by the Commision on April 22. This means the rule doesn't take effect until May 22 at the earliest. As of today, the rule has NOT been published in the FR. The more you know...
New FCC Rules & Regulations......Radio Stations that carry programming from Foreign Governments must identify that they are doing so and identify what Government is providing the programming. WZHF 1390 AM owned by Arthur Liu is carrying the Russian Programming Propaganda and Translator 105.5 FM owned by John Garziglia are not complying with this new FCC Rule.
Thank you Dave Hughes for 23 years of service to the DC Community. You provide a great service that no one else provides! Keep up the good work.
A bet on podcasting is paying off for iHeartMedia, JPMorgan said in a note to clients on Monday. Shares of the audio content company surged 14% on Friday after iHeart’s first-quarter results were stronger than expected, with podcast revenue up 142% year over year.
So the question begs, who really does own the Dover, DE TV market? See here. www.rabbitears.info
Dude, calm down. You want everyone else to suffer because you had to miss 15 minutes of Type II Diabetes Loves Ashley Baby? Watching 60 Minutes is not the credential you think it is. Do you get carryout meatloaf and mashed potatoes like Mike Wallace? You're being mocked for a reason: you made a silly complaint and won't let it go. Gus says don't be a dewsh

ONCE AGAIN FOR THE HEARING IMPAIRED IN DC… THE WASHINGTON NATIONALS PICK THEIR OWN BROADCASTERS, NOT MASN! HELLO! NEED A HEARING AID OR A SHORT BUS ????
Dave, I know you hate people sending pics and links, but I thought it was important for people to see how much money Draper’s WBOC is spending on WRDE NBC Coast TV, Delmarva’s low power NBC TV affiliate since you once interviewed the GM way back. And also how it might piss off Comcast/NBC. The signals as proposed will encompass Dover, DE better than WCAU NBC Philly. But Dover is in the Philly market and it will also reach down into Accomack County, VA as well. That’s 4 signals for WRDE and Telemundo from Dover to Chincoteague, Easton to near Ocean City. Now when WBOC goes into another carriage agreement negotiation with Comcast/NBC, what’s going to happen? Obviously, they’re going to hold out to get WRDE NBC Coast TV on Kent County cable in Delaware as well as other places that now carry WCAU but not WRDE, technically places in the Philly market for more historic than real reasons today. I wonder how this is going to play out. Will little ole WRDE the closer local TV station get blacked out by the big market TV station on network programming? That is what the FCC and Nielsen tell me. But should it be that way? The pic tells it better.
Dave's response: On vacay this week. Can't process graphics.....
Key lines in the the FP Santangelo story: “After he blocked her on social media” and “mean texts”. What does that tell me? FP has a GROUPIE! YAY! And the other line that caught my attention, “The Baltimore Orioles” have not been contacted. Why would they be? They didn’t choose him as a Nats announcer. The Nats did! DUH! Are they in last place because of MASN too? Misplaced blame. Everybody is a victim today in Washington, DC. Let’s all go have a good cry.
We have reached the point where being accused of sexual harassment now, in 2021 is a lot like being accused of homosexuality in1971. It has only to seem plausible. Even evidence will not help you! Before you know what hit you, you are fired, evicted your car repossessed, kids taken to CPS and dog taken to the pound. Long before you even have a chance to hire a lawyer.
So MASN fires Dan Kolko...the Nats throw him a bone to attempt to do the pre and post game shows...that was a disaster...Now I turn on the game...FP is nowhere to be seen after the Sexual Abuse charges...and here is young Dan, who never played the game, now trying to do the analyst job next to Carpenter. Are you kidding me? Bob must be beside himself having to deal with such an amatuerish organization as MASN.
Imus goes to the steakhouse? As a Guslim, I cannot support this waste of food. Not talking about the menu, talking about the diner. Imus has lost the same 38 pounds over and over and from time to time mentions being down 2 pounds. That's a pee and a poo. James Corden laughs at Rob Spewak who was gifted with Human Chorionic Gonadotrophin injections on the Weight-Not program but aggressively embraces obesity. Imus touting the Noom weight loss program just makes no sense. It's like Charles Manson lecturing about how not to be a dewsh. Gus still not listening
I feel like others have about Gus fed up with his manners the way he insults like Trump! I posted early last week.about why when they break in for severe weather like they did Monday night when a tornado warning was near Frederick MD they just cant delay start of programs instead of joining them in progress like CBS did read his response Gus accuses me of being old because I watch 60 minutes intelligent programs I also watch CBS Sunday Morning with Jane Pauley and watch TV over the air listen to AM 1690 but goes to show how little of a person someone is who who finds pleasure insulting someone because of thier interests.He needs to be removed from here Dave uncalled for behavior.I started posting a simple opinion and wind up with his full assault of insults like I see him do to many others here.Its a media site not a place to attack people.
So MASN decides F.P. Santangelo is guilty and suspends him without one shred of evidence--as seems to have become a common practice. What's to keep a supporter from making some wild, undocmented charge against one or more MASN executives? Would the suits also be suspended as quickly?
NEWS! bleacherreport.com: Nationals' MASN Broadcaster F.P. Santangelo Facing Sexual Misconduct Allegation... Washington Nationals television analyst and former MLB outfielder F.P. Santangelo has been accused of sexual misconduct, according to Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic. Santangelo, 53, has been held out of the team's broadcasts on Mid-Atlantic Sports Network four times in the least eight days with no explanation for the absences. MLB Network also removed Santagelo from a YouTube broadcast on Thursday. MASN and MLB Network did not provide comment... According to Ghiroli, a 31-year-old woman alleged Santangelo made unwanted sexual advances several years ago before sexually assaulting her. The allegation was made in an Instagram post "that caught the attention of the team and the network." Ghiroli reported MASN is aware of the allegation but that the woman who made the allegation has not been contacted by the team, network or the Baltimore Orioles—who own a majority share of MASN. Santangelo has been broadcasting games since 2011 and declined to comment on his absence from the airwaves to Jesse Dougherty and Ben Strauss of the Washington Post but provided a statement to Ghiroli after the publication of her story in The Athletic. "What I have read in your recently published article from an anonymous individual about me is untrue and did not happen," Santangelo said. "This is not representative of who I am as a man or a professional. I am confident that my name and reputation will be fully cleared."
RE: So does anyone think the new owners of 104.9/105.5 "WINC-FM" is just going to use those frequencies to simulcast WTNT and WKDV? Since WKDV has been silent since December, and their transmitter site has been sold, somehow simulcasting WKDV on one of the two FM frequencies doesn't seem all that likely, does it??
The Missouri legislature is forwarding a Bill to make January 12th of each year ‘Rush Limbaugh Day.’ Although it still has to pass more muster and obtain the governor's signature, the State of Missouri is taking no chances, and have allegedly released a list of approved and appropriate guidelines for the observance of the day. Suggested activities include creating larger carbon footprints by building camp and bonfires, taking a road trip in an SUV, flatulating outdoors, and dumping used motor oil on the ground. Other tributes may include firing and emptying an entire magazine with your AR-15 while raising the American flag, replacing the water in your jacuzzi with Perrier, wearing your MAGA hat in church, or smoking a cigar while you shave. In a fitting tribute, the State of Missouri will be offering tax credits to those who launch and fly their hot air balloons that day.

In life, as in radio, as in Podcasting, Discipline Equals Freedom! This weekend Imus is driving 2.5 hrs each way to eat at a Tampa restaurant that has a dessert room - not a dessert cart.

God! All this talk about the Nats announcers. I thought only professional broadcasters and antenna guys were supposed to post here? Most, if not all, sports announcers have not gone on the road during the pandemic. (See the Caps.) I bet some companies have seen the savings and are milking the "Pandemic Excuse" as long as they can. (See FedEx) The best was the writer who said "F.P. had to explain himself" or something like that. OK, mom. The other "Maybe they don't want to go to NY" writer. Wow, what a bad place to go and stay in a nice hotel. The food sucks too. Native NYer here - FU! LOL I have never seen so many washwomen comments about some sports announcers. You would think one of the Junkies or their producers missed a week! OOBBEE
Since there’s a lot of MASN bashing lately, I’ll explain something. The Nats pick their broadcasters, not MASN, but I’m sure both teams have an equal budget that must be met. For instance, the Orioles got rid of Gary Thorne not because they wanted to, but because he put them out of the budget or likely, Jim Palmer put Thorne out since he commands a lot of money and virtually cannot be fired. So that’s how you’re stuck with Kolko, not MASN’s decision on who, but on how much. And similarly, the Orioles got rid of Jim Hunter for Kevin Brown, a cheaper option. Now, both the Orioles and Nats can hire people themselves too for any MASN show they want if they pay for it. Tom Davis for instance still operates his own Orioles show, "Take Me Out to the Ballgame", on MASN, but he pays for everything and sells advertising. The Nats could easily have a show like that if they wanted to or some other broadcaster could. I’m surprised they don’t actually. Also, there’s still the elephant in the room, $100 million in a bank account that the Nats have yet to get as the lawsuit continues on appeal. Hopefully, when that’s resolved, things will get better.
NBC4 Saturday morning broadcast back to their usual one anchor. Wonder what prompted putting veteran anchor Pat Lawson Muse on the anchor desk last Saturday. She didn’t seem too pleased to be there. Watched the new anchor on Fox5 evenings a couple of times and hmmmm, he seems uncomfortable on the desk with Angie. And when they bring Maurina in to do a story, they just seem to take over as if he’s not there. Yeah he’s new, but their type of antics and shenanigans don’t appear to be his cup of tea.
[RE: MASN] It’s the same for all MLB teams - no broadcasters are traveling. Each team’s radio and TV broadcasters call road games from the booth at their home stadium. For national broadcasts, they’re in a studio. Only home announcers are actually on site.
"They do it when Sunday afternoon football runs over on CBS Ive seen 60 minutes start past 8 PM!" Were you born an idiot or did Mom give you rolling pin to the noggin therapy? NFL = revenue stream and contractual obligations. 60 Minutes = show that [old] people watch and revenue stream. Bob Bones the African Lady? No one cares. Did you not understand when I explained to you how network feeds work? Why do you want other people to suffer so you can see your program? "perhaps they don't realize that most Radio Stations have had their worst revenue year in many years due to the covid shut down." That doesn't go far enough. Electric bills should be reduced and McDonald's should sell 50 cent cheeseburgers. Don't get me started on the state of Ms. Mosby's poonanny, I could not possibly comment. Gus doing it when Sunday afternoon football
to the guy talking about MASN and Bob and FP not travelling - NBC Sports Washington has been doing that all season with the Caps and Wizards broadcasts.
Did you ever think that MASN’s Carpenter and FP simply DON’T want to go to NYC? Who would want to? Better the devil you know than the devil you don’t. Not to mention NYC’s lockdown has been a total disaster of death comparatively to many states from the Cuomo Crime Family decisions. Jim Palmer isn’t traveling anywhere except from his home in California, likely secluded from society, to Camden Yards or from his place in Towson if he still has it to the Yard. Even local sportscasters on the radio and TV are not going to even the home town stadium all that much I’m told by someone at WJFK. There is no one to interview. It’s all done by ZOOM now and maybe will be for a long time. Simple. The players don’t want to be around them and some of them don’t want to be around the players, but either way, it’s not allowed. A game camera lens was recently broken during a broadcast and no technician had credentials to go on the field to clean the glass up. The umpire had to sweep it up! So why bother traveling to the stadium if you get everything on TV and nothing extra right now by being there? The sad part is that the fans are not so happy about this COVID paranoia for even vaccinated people and as someone once recently told me, “Sure, I’d go, but I don’t want to go through the COVID interrogation, so no, not interested.” MLB games are not selling out even at 25% capacity if anyone hasn't noticed. I fear there will be longterm negatives from it all for many sports.
Bob Carpenter is back and all is well with the Nats TV broadcast. Well, almost. FP is still there and thats always been a problem. Poor Dan Kolko. Whoever made the decision at MASN to put the young kid in a no win situation trying to fill in for Carpenter, should be ashamed of themselves.. Kolko was okay as a field reporter then struggled when thrust into trying to host Nats Xtra which Johnny and Ray handled so well over the years. Granted Bo Porter was nothing to write home about and the combination was dreadful. Kolko , who had NEVER done play by play was embarrassing. Even FP was shocked. As bad as the Nats telecast is..have you checked out the O's lately. Who are those people doing the games. On any given night, it's anyones guess who will be calling the game. Hey Chris Glass, MASN needs you to come back and get the sinking ship afloat.

What could MASN be accomplishing by not sending Carpenter and FP to New York and instead having them do the game sitting in front of two TV sets at Nationals Park?
For the third consecutive year the FCC announced they they are going to raise their annual regularity fees. In 2021 the fees will go up 8% for Radio Stations. Since the FCC has been "working from home" for the past 13 months perhaps they don't realize that most Radio Stations have had their worst revenue year in many years due to the covid shut down. Most stations revenue is down 15% to 25% or more this past year. Station expenses have remained the same or gone up. Perhaps the FCC should consider reducing the fees for 2021 rather than raising them.
Congratulations to WTOP on FOUR regional Murrow Awards. To WAMU on FOUR regional Murrow Awards, and to WYPR on TWO regional Murrow Awards (same number as Newsradio 1090.) Great job by WEAA to land a regional award as well.
Tired of Gus rants my point delaying start time of tv programs Monday night with storm.coverage is cool not everyone can stream the shows.They do it when Sunday afternoon football runs over on CBS Ive seen 60 minutes start past 8 PM! Anyway something else I want to put out there Im sure there,s alot of radio enthusiasts here wondering if anyone owns or has tried one of the supposebly better AM radios from CC Crane or the older GE Superadio and if so is there a decent improvement in reception of the weaker signals.I like 1690 from Lexington Park great soft leaning oldies daytime only get it with some background hiss on my Insignia HD tune HD Radio use a Terk Advantage loop tried even putting it on my deck but radios AM Section Im sure not the best.Wondering if the CC Cranes top of the line around $160 offers huge improvement although just realized the Superadio may be too old to include the extended AM band 1610 and up.
Someone wrote, "Are the Lobbyist now in charge of the FCC?" The correct question is, "When were lobbyists NOT in charge of the FCC?"
Sinclair news for a good laugh. Baltimore State's Attorney Marylyn Mosby has filed a complaint with the FCC to have WBFF Fox 45 investigated for what she claims are defamatory stories about her office and her. It should be noted that the Feds recently raided the State's Attorney's Office and are investigating Mosby and her husband and several other officials. Defamation of a public official is rather difficult to prove in general by a journalist or media company unless you can prove both falsehoods and intent. Mosby also claims that she is being persecuted by the Trump Administration. But the political stuff, while funny, is none of my interest. What I found most interesting is that Baltimore's other 3 local TV news stations did so few stories about the State's Attorney's Office for Baltimore, especially with some of its decisions making national news even or about the public corruption charges, which you would think should be big local news in Baltimore. Apparently not so much except for WBFF. More from The Sun's impartial media critic, David Zurawik, who despises Sinclair and Fox News, well except for when he worked for Fox News. hehe Yep, Zurawik never ever mentions that he used to appear on Media Buzz with Howard Kurtz on FOX. During that time he constantly trashed CNN and sometimes MSNBC. Then after he went to CNN, he constantly trashed and still trashes Fox News.
(at) Bob Hearts Ashtabula Guy: To be clear, the network probably doesn't send out DVDs of each episode. The network relays a satellite feed (in the old days it was point to point microwave) to the local affiliates. That's why east coasters hear the profanity on SNL and west coasters dewn't. Tew bad you missed out on the first 15 minutes because it was a Very Special BHA where Ashleebabyola confronted her opiate dependence.

The Washington Post’s Jonathan O’Connell and Sara Fisher Ellison report: In its bid to acquire Tribune Publishing, the hedge fund Alden Global Capital vowed to provide $375 million in cash to the owner of the Chicago Tribune, the Baltimore Sun and other titles — a theoretically welcome influx to an investment-starved newspaper chain. But industry and financial experts have looked at the fine print and see something starkly different: Alden, they say, has already signaled that it plans to saddle Tribune with debt that could further hollow out the company, and it may not have $375 million available to begin with.

I wasn,t complaining about the shows being interrupted Monday night because of the severe weather I totally understand the importance of that I was stating why couldn,t WUSA 9 just start the lineup 15 minutes later so you could watch Bob Hearts Ablishola completely The Neighborhood was totally preempted as well from 8 till 8:30 guess you have to stream it.
Wow, apparently I am missing some stuff on the Nats. Bob and FP for many seasons now have taken a couple breaks from the grind. But while they announced Bob taking time off, seeing FP gone too, was odd. I am so with the guy who mentioned Grant Paulsen. He was an obnoxious kid and still comes off that way. How dare he question Baker the way he did about the lineup and Rendon. That still pisses me off. I worked at Ch. 9 when he was a kid, and we had him on a sports segment with Jim Nantz and Phil Simms about the NFL and he couldn't have been more rude. Fortunately, those guys are pros and didn't take it seriously.
There is no such thing as “proper capitalization” or grammar on a white on black CRT style text based message board system, which is essentially what DCRTV is, only it’s not live and no editing is possible. You can send messages with bold emphasized text, but it’s of no use. So if you send something, then realize the message might look bad, there are no do overs. The only method of emphasis is ALL CAPS. Are the NINNY from the AVS or another website who constantly complains about CAPS all the time too? Or are you the one who protested the Tenleytown tower and believes all of DC’s towers are 1000 feet tall and tall enough when most engineers would laugh at you? You sound like someone who would fit both descriptions. One of those “Follow the Science” posers. LOL. None of the above.
Ran into some old Channel 4 friends and a bunch have left in the past two years. They reminded me that now, there's no sense of dominating the market like the old days of Vance, Bob, and George. Now, it's about I'm not paid extra to do early weather cut-ins or what the viewers want...Doug, Amelia, and the others are all about themselves, and I believe that. Sue Palka is the only one who knows weather in this market and that's all. I was watching FOX5 during the storms, two night's ago, and this 4-box of dribble kept going on and on and it was embarrassing! Don't blame the Channel 4 ND from Pittsburgh, he's from a smaller market and sadly enough, has no clue about what Channel 4 meant to this area and the formerly high expectations. Give Topper some credit as well because he's been able to survive this long and keep a loyal audience. I guess the good times are certainly behind us and times have really changed!
Mailbag Minute:: Florida Man Mike O'Meara knows stuffing - ballot stuffing! As the tale is told, Carla O'Meara has now declared herself winner of the Best of Gulfshore 2021 Best Esthetician in Lee County contest. You know, one of those yearly vote online for your favorite local dog walker type of contests. Has O'Meara now stepped into a pile of poop? On Mondays show O'Meara appears to, for sake of comedic irony, throw his wife, her reputation and her new business under the out of area "ballot stuffing" bus with quote "Award Winning [Best of Gulfshore] facialist...Thanks to a couple of her clients and my audience...Laugh" Place your prop bets! DCRTV betting odds that in light of O'Meara's admission, will Gulfshore Life, Southwest Florida's Luxury Lifestyle Magazine open an investigation? [Pretty sure they have rules preventing ballot stuffing?]. Make Cinderella give back her golden slippers? Will Carla banish Mike and his C-Pap machine to the couch for outing both of their alleged 'win at any cost' scandalous behavior? Stay tuned.
First the bad news: I spotted my first Brood X cicada in my driveway today. The good news: I'd rather listen to them than the daytime lineup on WMAL.
Regarding F.P., yes the temporary disappearance is a real mystery. One would think it was a suspension of some type but we need a local media type to do some actual investigating. Where are Woodward and Bernstein when you need them? As for Bob Carpenter, one would think he is getting ready to retire, maybe this is his final season? Whatever happens, they should keep Grant freakin Paulson out of the booth at all costs. He filled in for F. P. for a game and was atrocious. Condescending, obnoxious, way to mouthy, and very unlikable. Which should not be surprising because he is like that on his awful radio show as well..............
Is anyone listening to HD Radio? In the most recent ratings in DC I could not find any HD Stations listed. I realize that Nielsen only shows the stations that subscribe to their service. That is their way of doing business. When you are the only rating service in DC you can decide how you want to operate. It would be nice if Nielsen had some competition in DC.
As a regular viewer of Fox5 morning broadcast, I will be so glad when Steve Chenevey & Wisdom get back on air. Watching Erin Como attempt to be an anchor is painful. Thus my changing channels about 5 minutes into seeing her. Seems like a nice young lady, but really needs to stay in her lane (no pun intended) & just do traffic, cooking & exercise segments. She is just so poor in her attempt to ad lib during conversations as well as her lack of interviewing skills. She’s been here long enough to improve, but unfortunately hasn’t.
Word from FEMA is that they are planning to do a national EAS test on Weds August 11. When they tried it last year, 12 out of 77 Primary Entry Point stations failed to activate due to equipment issues, which meant the warning did not fan out as designed, planned or expected. The test this year will show if the problems were ironed out or not. Treat the 11th as any other day on the air, but have the Benny Hill Theme cued up, just to be properly prepared.
There is no such thing as “proper capitalization” or grammar on a white on black CRT style text based message board system, which is essentially what DCRTV is, only it’s not live and no editing is possible. You can send messages with bold emphasized text, but it’s of no use. So if you send something, then realize the message might look bad, there are no do overs. The only method of emphasis is ALL CAPS. Are the NINNY from the AVS or another website who constantly complains about CAPS all the time too? Or are you the one who protested the Tenleytown tower and believes all of DC’s towers are 1000 feet tall and tall enough when most engineers would laugh at you? You sound like someone who would fit both descriptions. One of those “Follow the Science” posers. LOL

FP Santangelo will be back on the air tonight but no word on where he was over the weekend. As for Bob Carpenter, he’s already said he plans to take more time off this year and that it’s his call. He’s pushing 70 so he’s probably easing into retirement.
The FCC is nearly last on the list of positions to be filled by a new administration, sorry to say it. And could some posters get lessons in proper capitalization? As for the Nationals, I have a feeling Bob Carpenter and FP's days are numbered.
I agree it's a shame what is happening to Howard. It was clear from day one when Annie walked in the door she wanted a higher caliber Wx partner. She got Reese moved off the show by leaning on management and using other methods. The next guy in the door wont be up to Howard's Caliber, but it will be someone she can dance with on Social media with Allison and Tony. His accuracy will be missed in this newsroom.
I saw it on DCRTV.COM first! Someone couldn't see the entire episode of Bob Hearts Abishola because of a local weather break in. Then they complained about it here. I'm sending Dave some money for that. George in Parkville
So, this morning I tune into WMAL to find truth and real news with Vince and Mary. At 8:20 AM they had a car expert on who dropped a bombshell- new car prices are soaring. He said if you go to a new car dealership, you will pay several thousand in premiums to get a new car. WOW! He then said rental cars, standard sedans are going for $350.00 a day! Mary then said "with inflation, Biden can give Carter a run for his money." This insight is incredible. So, I went to Expedia and got pricing in mid May for cars at the Philadelphia Airport, because airport car rentals are always a little higher than off airport locations. Anyway, rentals for three days went from $88.00 a day to $140.00 a day. These prices are pretty normal. With all the good economic news out there, with the vaccines being put in arms at 200,000 a day, WMAL does not talk about that, they lie about impending hyper inflation. It is as if someone is just making crap up, and telling WMAL what to say on the air.
MASN, Nationals won’t say why F.P. Santangelo has been absent from broadcasts... www.washingtonpost.com... F.P. Santangelo, the color commentator for Washington Nationals broadcasts on the Mid-Atlantic Sports Network, is on an unplanned break from the booth that has not been explained by the team or the network that employs him. His absence is not health-related, according to two people with knowledge of the situation, and MASN’s plans for Tuesday’s game against the Atlanta Braves are not yet clear. In a short phone conversation Monday, Santangelo declined to answer questions about his absence, saying the Nationals would explain the situation. A Nationals spokeswoman then declined to comment, referring questions to MASN. A MASN spokesman also declined to comment.
WJLA broke into Jeporady about the severe weather near Frederick anybody knows though instead of covering it which is thier duty as a station and just joining whatever program is already in progress why cant they start the network programs just later from start to finish I recorded Bob Hearts Ablishola on WUSA CH 9 which starts at 8:30 to get only half the show when they ended the storm coverage around 8:45.Also noticed 1420 WKCW has been off the air Saturday is when I first noticed it could that also be related to the high winds on Friday damaging something at the transmitter didn,t check it today.That was a frequent problem with them in the early days of thier classic hits format off the air often but not a problem last several years never figure out how they make money looks like it,s owned by a church One God Ministries no commercials.
[RE: Doug Kammerer] All the other stations broke into programming at least 5-10 minutes before NBC4 did and Doug looked like he wasn’t prepared and was playing catch-up. Not a good look. WUSA9 had Topper and Chester both in the studio (and FOX5 has Sue Palka and Caitlin Roth in the building every evening) so I’m not sure why Doug and Amelia can’t ever both be working in the studio on the same day.
Funny how one of the biggest stories ever retracted is not even news. The Washington Post, The NY Times, NBC News and all their affiliates like WRC 4, etc, all put out the story that the FBI had warned Rudy Giuliani that he was being used as a pawn by the Russians for misinformation with regards to Hunter Biden, a story that none of those news organizations covered for that very reason before the election. Now all 3 news organizations have since totally retracted the story saying the source was incorrect, but none will say who the source was even considering that their story helped get a former NYC mayor and Presidential lawyer raided by the FBI and basically got Joe Biden elected President. Is this not ORWELL or what?
Dave, here's a true Howard Bernstein story I can now tell that I couldn’t tell for all these years. Way WAY back, I was in HB's morning weather group online, which Tegna I'm told, did NOT like when they took over WUSA 9 from Gannett (same company technically, but different people making decisions). At the time, HB was in constant fear of being fired for things people said in his weather group. By today's standards, he would have been CANCELED on DAY 1. But my nephew was interested in weather and I asked him for advice on getting in the business, you name it and he always obliged and we got to see a behind the scenes view of him doing the weather at the same time since his weather computer cam was on live while he was doing the weather. It was a special experience unlike you'd ever see today. I once even asked Howard for a direct link to the WUSA Doppler 9000 to use when I was at the beach. At that time, WUSA 9 didn't have an app, or direct weather to radar link easy on an iPhone and I had one of the very first iPhones that could even do this. HB gave me a direct link to the same Doppler 9000 he was seeing in the news room so I knew when a storm was hitting the beach here in OC to get off in time and not get struck by lightning. He's a prince of a guy, seriously, top notch. But I'll admit. A lot of people at the beach back then thought I was nuts when I said, "You know it's going to rain in about 5 minutes right?” Nobody believed that I had the radar on my phone back then. THANKS HB! —BaltoMedia
We have a tornado warning in DC and Doug Kammerer is sitting in his living room. What is going on at NBC4? Mike Goldrick is running that place into the ground.

Are the Lobbyist now in charge of the FCC? The Channel 6 LPTV Group has a very powerful Lobby. They don't want to go Digital on July 12, 2021. They are all making too much money operating as FM Radio Stations using their Audio Channel 87.7 FM. They got a two year extension the last time the FCC told them they must go DIGITAL or turn in their license. Now it appears that the FCC is going to give them another extension. This powerful Lobby is trying to get them permanent control of Channel 6. This is NOT in the Public Interest. Who is making the decisions at the FCC now? In DC this "Franken FM Station" is WDCN 87.7 FM. The owner of this station has leased out this station from the beginning. They have never operated as a TELEVISION STATION as intended.
Looks like Howard Bernstein is out at WUSA as of the end of the month. Maybe they’re stealing Tucker Barnes from FOX5 but I’m willing to bet his replacement won’t be a white male since that apparently doesn’t fly at WUSA these days. Is Topper the next to go? Will the last one out please turn off the lights...
Dave's response: Our WUSA source says that the FTVLIVE story has a bunch of inaccuracies. Howie is leaving in June, yes, but it was totally his choice, we hear. Not pushed out.....
NEWS! From www.ftvlive.com: Sources tell us that Tegna’s WUSA and morning Weather anchor Howard Bernstein are parting ways. Look for the company to say that it was “mutual” and that Bernstein is leaving to “start a new chapter.” Word is the station already has Bernstien’s replacement waiting in the wings and are looking to move on without him.
WCTN has been off the air all weekend. Wind must've done a number on the xmitter (again) on Friday. That's not much of a surprise, but in its absence, from Rockville I heard distant music from what I expected to be all sports programming. Guess what?! It is WXGI from Richmond, but it's classic hip-hop now and they call themselves The Box. Surprise!! Jeff
I noticed at least one July 13 dismissal to extend a construction permit, DC’s Daystar and IBN TV channel. Of course, each CP Extension has its own circumstance, but the FCC dismissed W45DN-LD near Annapolis’ permit for channel 10 in DC. It will lose channel 45 for certain as of July 13 if they cannot get channel 10 on the air by then. I assume this is a second extension request, but the channel 6’s are all requesting a second extension too, so there is that similarity and precedent now set. Now conversely, the FCC granted an extension on the eastern shore, but it has no repack considerations. Draper’s WRUE-LD on channel 19 got an extension until next year to build another channel for WRDE NBC Coast TV in Pocomoke City on the WBOC FM tower until 1/10/22. But once again individual circumstances. it’s adjacent to land mobile in DC on channel 18, so there are likely additional complications in building that. So once again, it’s a crap shoot as to what the FCC will do with the Channel 6’s except that they have a very powerful lobby so if history shows us if anything, they’ll get another extension and/or eventually permanent control of channel 6, which would be a mistake and not in the public interest. Finally, about the FCC not having a Commissioner, it does appear the FCC is languishing with a pile up of applications. About a month to the Baltimore NextGen TV launch for every TV station (except WJZ) and the FCC hasn’t even approved it yet. Are they going to wait until just before the June 8 launch and then fine them if they don’t get on air in time? I know what the FCC’s problem is, but it’s a stupid one. They’re claiming that WMPT 22 doesn’t cover 95% of the market. That’s why they’re using WMPB 67 too! For some reason, the FCC rules do not allow this, another FCC epic fail. —Balto-Media
Britt McHenry is doing general assignment reporting for FOX5? She did a live hit Sunday evening from the newsroom about the boat that capsized in California.
I also noticed Pat Lawson Muse coanchoring with Molette Green Saturday morning. It struck me as weird because Molette normally solo anchors on Saturdays and has Adam Tuss as a coanchor on Sundays. Usually they have one of their reporters fill in on the anchor desk if needed (like Cory Smith or Drew Wilder), not one of their weekday afternoon anchors.

NEWS! From Radio Insight: After selling their longtime 92.5 Winchester frequency to Educational Media Foundation last fall (now “Air 1” WAIW), Centennial Broadcasting is selling Hot AC “105 WINC-FM” 104.9 WZFC Strasburg and 105.5 WINC-FM Berryville VA to Metro Radio Inc. for $225,000. Metro Radio currently owns 730 WTNT Alexandria and 1460 WKDV Manassas VA in the DC suburbs along with multiple translators in the region all of which are leased out to other operators. Conservative Talk 1400 WINC Winchester is not part of the deal and stays with Centennial. Centennial sold 92.5 WINC-FM to EMF last October for $1.75 million. It then moved WINC-FM’s Hot AC programming to the 104.9 and 105.5 simulcast. 104.9 previously simulcasted 1400 WINC, while 105.5 was Country “B105” WXBN
NEWS! Northern Virginia based Metro Radio has entered into an agreement to purchase the Centennial Broadcasting Radio Stations WINC-FM 105.5 FM and WZFC-FM 104.9 FM serving Winchester, Virginia and the Shenandoah Valley. Metro Radio will retain the very popular Adult Contemporary Format currently on the stations. WINC-FM has been known over many years with local talent such as Barry Lee in its 35th year. Allen Shaw, President of Centennial Broadcasting, says "We are pleased Metro Radio will be purchasing the WINC-FM Brand Broadcasting on 105.5 FM and 104.9 FM in order to continue the long history of this legendary Winchester Radio Station."
... The buzzards dine on the carcasses.... The leftovers of Centennial's once-powerful Winchester-area FM trifecta have been sold. This transactiin follows the now-closed EMF sale of the 92.5 signal . Centennial now has unloaded WINC-FM Berryville (105.5, 3kw) and WZFC Strasburg (104.9, 4.1kw) for just $225,000 per their FCC filing on 30 April . The buyer is (no surprise!) Metro Radio Inc. fcc.gov... The actual purchase agreement is here : fcc.gov... Not included in the sale is WINC-AM 1400. In all likelihood Metro Radio will try Spanish-ethnic on the 105.5 signal but not sure how 104.9 would fit into that equation.
Remember folks, WMAL was numero uno when they had a full service, personality driven format, along with a top notch news department. In fact, their news department was so exemplary, it was mentioned in college textbooks.
For those following the recent troubles of America’s newspapers in getting any story correct, once AGAIN The esteemed Washington Post has retracted a story, this time its story that Rudy Giuliani was warned by the FBI of possible Russian misinformation. Other media outlets have also retracted it. WHY? BECAUSE IT DID NOT HAPPEN. It was a narrative put forth by either the Biden Administration or the media itself. Biden simply is out to take out his enemies one by one because his son is a criminal caught with his crack stained hands in the Ukrainian cookie jar.
Grant Paulson just can't shut up.

Ben, Little Joe . . . Couldn't you find a more contemporary alias? Bonanza went off the air nearly half a century ago and the entire cast is long dead. How do you go all "Hoss Cartwright" on someone's ass? Throw his casket at them?
Noticed something interesting happening in Phoenix that could happen in DC/Baltimore soon. The Scripps ABC station out there is broadcasting a 1080p feed of the ABC Network, not 720p. I’m not exactly sure if it's coming directly from ABC that way or being upconverted, but it’s possible to happen via WJLA on WIAV or WMAR on WNUV in June. The CW out there is also in 1080p. In Baltimore WBAL TV will be 1080p in June and I suspect WNUV CW 54 too, but it’s still unclear which DC TV stations are participating in the initial rollout of NextGen TV. Sinclair VP of Technology Mark Aitken also said that DC will be its first SFN (Single Frequency Network) to be built. That is the essential part that enables easy indoor TV reception on the fringes of the market, no outdoor antenna required. — Balto-Media
Today while driving around in Rockville, I heard a cool mix of mellow R&B music on 98.3 FM; the RDS said "WHUR-HD2" and the station IDed as "The quiet storm station dot com". Checking their website, it says "now on 98.3". I'm assuming that this is W252DC Reston which was previously relaying the excellent freeform "The Gamut" that's on 820 AM digital mode and 94.3 FM Frederick. Can anyone verify that this is W252DC relaying WHUR's HD channel? Thanks, Lw
Dave's response: We did report a month or two ago that WHUR's Quiet Storm stream is now airing on low power 98.3 out of the Reston area.....

WMAL Ratings have really dropped with the loss of Rush Limbaugh. In the last rating in April, WMAL was in 9th place. This is the lowest position they have been in my memory. I can remember when WMAL was number one in the market!
Here's some reading material for the person obsessed with the status of the Channel 6 LPTVs: www.insideradio.com... As you might see, they have plenty of their table, and the lack of a permanent Chairman doesn't seem to be an obstacle in getting things done. While we're at it, you might want to check this out. You'll learn the FCC deals with much more than radio and TV: www.fcc.gov
Anchoring change at channel 4? Turned on NBC4 this morning & who do I see co-anchoring, but Pat Lawson Muse! Because I was still a bit groggy, thought maybe I was waking up from a weekday afternoon nap & was tuning into the 4pm news. Hmmm. Reminds me of how WTTG moved Maureen Umeh to weekends never to be seen again on the weekday anchor desk.
#FriendsOfDaveHas TMOS has become an interview show which, I think, is an improvement??? Clown Boy has taken booking over for Bob and it had nowhere to go but up. But, even with the improvement, it reeks of TMOS laziness and ineptitude. Clown Boy’s gets: a washed up trapeze guy, a man named Duff that bakes, the parents of a retiring intern, and the Biggie, hold on to your seats, Adam Ferrara. Normally, Adam would be a pretty big get but not in DC. He has been on The Tony Kornheiser show hundreds of times. He is a very good friend of Marc Sterne (Nigel), Mr. Tony’s producer. Marc regularly opens up for him. Adam was good on TMOS. He really was. (Next time Mike talks his health, covid or politics I’ll switch over to Adam’s Podcast which was sounded great in the interview.) The NEXT DAY, Adam was on Tony’s Show. Imagine that? Adam is in DC this week and Richmond next. Imagine that? I know both shows are podcasts and based in DC but, what a difference an interviewer and sidekicks make in a taped interview. I invite all DCRTV readers to listen to both and post their comparisons. It is really funny. Adam told about 50% of the same stories and jokes but his interview is so much more professional and entertaining with Tony. The biggest gaff Mike made was forgetting the date of a month three minutes after Adam told to him. It was obvious Mike was paying attention as if Adam were Bob or Oscar telling a story. (Seriously, is Mike losing it?) I know TMOS wants to crown Circus Boy King of the Bookers after Adam in week one. But, the truth be told, it is not hard to book a comic coming to ANY city on ANY radio show. For years, the Junkies had one on almost every Thursday or Friday morning. Many times live. It was usually driven by the comedy clubs from what I remember. The biggest things I learned about Adam being on TMOS: Their perceived attitude that this was a GREAT get and how little Bob ever knew/learned about booking guests for a show. He was D&Ms producer three times and on TMOS over ten years. A comic is in town, dumb dumb. Frank Caliendo came up in Mr. Tony’s interview. Adam gushed about his talent and how while being typecast as a mimic he could use it to freestyle and improvise. AFTER Adam, Mike brough Caliendo and said he hated when Don had him on so much. Mike said he was intimidated a bit by having another mimic on the show. Interesting perspectives if you ask me. Imagine if Mike embraced it and they went for it? Oh, wait, it’s Mike. He has a Dr. appointment followed by a T time.
I don’t get to stop by much and read DCRTV much anymore. But when I do the mail bag is usually at least humorous. So I stopped by today, probably the first time in at least six months and I was not disappointed. HOWEVER, The breathless windbag pounding on his keyboard while he ponders over whether WKDV was ever Disney.... shut up and listen a minute so you don’t continue to make a fool of yourself. WKDV, and a few other signals in the area, we’re all affiliates of Radio AAHS, which was a children’s format that competed with the Radio Disney. From the perspective of children and parents, as with much of Radio, would they have known the difference? And would they have cared? No and probably not are the likely correct answers. Many people associated the signals with Radio Disney simply because of the the format. WKDV ran the kids format for many years from a facility in Silver Spring, MD. I could probably pull the telephone circuit IDs that interconnected the studio and the transmitter over a T1 owned by CBS if you think I don’t know what I’m talking about. The program director went on to be the director of production at XM. There is no reason for me to sign this.
Most of the press, local and national have ignored it, but the FOX News Border Drone Cams you probably have seen on WTTG only have made a mockery of mainstream media including The Washington Post if you didn't notice. Of course it's not a crisis, nothing here to see, OH WAIT! WHAT'S THAT ON TV? People are not stupid. It’s just the media who think we are.
Eastern Shore news. Here’s the signal map from WRDE’s proposed new tower for its satellite TV signal WSJZ-LD near Milton, DE. It will be slightly higher power at 15kw over the current beach location (WXDE tower), 100 feet taller, and have a better signal to Dover and most of southern Delaware. While an improvement in total signal coverage, WRDE's weakest signaled area is still Ocean City, MD, Maryland's 2nd largest city on the summer weekends. But it does make one wonder how NBC’s WCAU will treat the matter as WRDE is not on Kent County cable and the county is in the Philly market technically. Draper has invested quite a bit of money in WRDE since its purchase with local news in southern Delaware separate from WBOC CBS 16. It would be a shame if the Comcast/NBC behemoth flexes its antitrust muscle once again against local TV news like it did in Hagerstown and Wildwood, NJ. Ironically, this new signal will once again also bring NBC back to Wildwood NJ too. See here... www.rabbitears.info... — Balto-Media.com or you can call me Baltomedia.net or you can call the FBI for a raid too I guess. But I’m pretty sure my iCloud is encrypted unlike others.
