    Now that FOX is purchasing WJW again, do they make a move to also buy WBNX for a Cleveland duopoly?

    They could.  Would help keep WBNX alive.

    THOUGHTS:  They’re really banging the gavel, aren’t they?  Only one airing of “The Ninety and Nine Club”.  Is that because they have their diginet to run it other times?

    QUESTIONS:  What is “Harry”, and what is “Top 30”?

    Harry is Harry Connick, Jr.’s talk show, which is ending after two seasons.  Top 30 is a news show featuring trending and current stories.

    Two of Angley’s shows are repeated all the time on 55.2 – The Happy Channel

    I’ll be happy when the Happy Channel goes away.

    It all comes full circle:

    January 1995 – UPN and WB debut, and since each only airs a couple of nights a week, WUAB fits them both in easily.
    1995-1997 – both mini-nets expand, and it’s apparent UPN is getting first priority on WUAB, and WB is crammed in on weekends
    1997 – WB moves to WBNX
    1997-2006 – UPN and WB do what they do on WUAB and WBNX respectively
    2006 – UPN and WB merge to form the CW, and in a bit of an upset, WBNX wins the affiliation (WUAB was lukewarm at best, and TV 55 went all in and it paid off)
    2006 – WUAB gets My Network TV as basically a consolation prize
    2015 – My Net gets banished to the late night hours on channel 43 as they debut their 9 p.m. newscast
    2018 – CW moves to WUAB (with MY Net late nights) and WBNX becomes a full-on old school independent, basically resetting things to what they were at the beginning of the timeline

    According to listings on Zap2It, WUAB is eliminating its 7am newscast on its main signal on Monday.  No word if it will continue online or on 43.2 (Bounce TV).

    If it ain’t on the main channel, I highly doubt it will be on the subchannel.

    The 7 a.m. and 9 p.m. daily newscasts are finito after tomorrow.

    Only news on WUAB going forward will be (again, going back to it’s roots) the hour-long 10 O’Clock News.

    Any idea what the weekends will look like on WBNX?

    Could WBNX get “My Net”?  How much programming do they have?

    For the most part, it’s interesting to talk about all this, but far less interesting to actually watch.

    The CW programming on Saturday mornings will be replaced by two hours of Jack Hanna and an hour of the drama Heartland.
    Not sure if they can afford MyNet affiliation if they couldn’t afford the CW.  That would only be possible through new ownership.

    Perhaps Rev. Angley can host a horror movie on Saturday night.

    And on the days he’s off in Africa it can be hosted by the true horror, “That Thing” that he calls a toupée.
