Should be more better now, BIM found additional errors with this channel getting pushed into the XML file.

It's still wrong. Alfred Hitchcock Presents was on followed by Mister Ed, but the guide showed Burns and Allen followed by Bachelor Father.

Maybe not coincidently I noticed they have imposed, somewhat, a dress code on the previously slovenly dressed millennial videographers on the evening news programs.

The guys are all wearing ties now and have had their hair cut and combed. It's a lot less like "dressed for Concord Mills" now but still not up to the business professional/Mad Men standards they are using for the morning show.

I don't think this is going to help. They need to do a major gutting of that production and on air talent and go to something more mainstream if they have any hopes of peeling off viewers from the other stations. I think they can do it as they have the entire resources of News Corp at their disposal. Their morning program shows this as it make the others here look like amateur hour.

Perhaps WJZY will continue to make changes and improve the evening newscasts, as they are replacing the news director. As the morning show indicates, they have the potential and resources to do a good job. Hopefully it will eventually be more like the other FOX stations with a more basic, traditional style newscast.

What's up with Grit? Their website shows 23 stations up and running with Grit sub-channels and 26 others, including Charlotte, are still shown as "Coming soon". Anybody know what's causing the delay?

They aren't broadcasting the PSIP information to show the current program information; on my "non-internet connected" TV, I'm only getting "DTV Programming".

Just wondering if any of the local radio/TV stations got knocked off the air 25 years ago during Hurricane Hugo. I was in Northern Virginia at the time and listened to coverage on 11.10 WBT at night. And I have seen the video where the roof fell in on Larry Sprinkle at the old WCNC studio. Surprising that a coastal storm good do so much damage as far inland as Charlotte.

I get PSIP information, but it is very, very limited for WJZY... in some cases less than 12 hours worth.

I emailed wbtv a couple of weeks ago about grit and they said that it should be up and running the first week of October.
