I haven't seen anyone mention it so I thought I'd give a big THANK YOU to channel 8 for broadcasting a half hour summary of their hour long 6 o'clock news.

I like the pacing of the half hour summary much better than I do the one hour broadcast. I also am amazed every evening when I see that not only has the show been edited from an hour to half an hour but that your editors even have time to remove the time and temperature from the bottom of the FOX-8 logo!

Finally, the 7 o'clock time works better for me as I watch national news from 6:30 to 7 then immediately switch to 8.2 for local news, weather and sports.

You would think channel 2 and 12 would consider rebroadcasting their news on their subchannels.

(Moderators, feel free to move this to the Greensboro, NC thread) Thanks for noticing! First off, there is a whole Greensboro thread that you might want to frequent.

The 6pm show is just 30 minutes. Always has been. So the 7pm rebroadcast is just the whole show. The bug is always downstream so the recording point is Production Control out before it goes to Master Control. Glad you like it. I will pass it along to the powers that be.

All opinions expressed (unless otherwise noted) are the posters and NOT the posters employers. The poster in NO WAY is/will speak for his employers.
