A couple quick notes

Here's a couple fast notes, as Your Tri-State Media Watcher is trying to fix his computer's wireless net access, and recover from a pectoral injury:

WCPO Weather Tracker Pulled on Insight: As expected and reported last week here, WCPO has indeed pulled their Weather Tracker off Insight's basic cable service (which only includes channels 1-99).

As we reported, the service went to a digital signal, which means Insight subscribers will need a digital converter to receive channel 71.

It's unclear when, or even IF, Insight will make any effort to return the channel.

WXIX-TV Update: It looks like Dan Carroll is indeed settling in as 19's new news anchor.

Carroll moved to the post on January 1, following Jack Atherton's departure.

For now, there's no word on his replacement, OR his plans going forward.

Remember, if Atherton wishes to remain in town, he has to sit out for 9 months due to a non-compete clause.

Meanwhile, it looks like they have locked up the services of Tricia Macke for 5 1/2 more years, according to John Kiesewetter of the Enquirer.
