Have you heard the news? TVSpy is joining the Mediabistro blog network!

With this move, TVSpy renews its commitment to being the go-to platform for news, information, and discussion related to the broadcast news industry. TVSpy.com and the ShopTalk e-newsletter will remain largely unchanged for the near future.

You can rest assured that future changes to the TVSpy network will be made with the goal of better serving the exceptionally loyal TVSpy audience.

And as part of a growing family of Mediabistro sites including TVNewser and SportsNewser, we’ll have more resources to get the job done.

In the weeks ahead, I’ll be filling you in on any changes. Meanwhile, feel free to discuss the news on the TVSpy Watercooler.

Here’s to the future!

Editor’s Note:

Unfortunately we are continuing to experience some technical problems with the ShopTalk mail server and, as a result, some of you have been receiving the e-newsletter belatedly or not at all. I’m very sorry for this inconvenience and we are doing everything that we can to fix the problem.

If you have not received an e-newsletter, you can always check for the latest headlines on our website or on our Twitter feed: @tvspynews

We will be back with a vengeance on Monday, bringing you the most pressing stories from around the broadcast news community. Thank you very much for your patience.

Editor’s Note:

As many of you certainly know by now, TVSpy has run into some technical problems over the last few days. We have begun the process of moving many of our operations to a new server system and, as a result, some of our key features have been down intermittently since the weekend.

As of this morning, the message boards are up again and operating as they should. We are still experiencing some problems with the ShopTalk e-newsletter, though, so please bear with us as some images may not display properly, etc. If you have not received an e-newsletter, you can always check for the latest headlines on our website.

Additionally, ShopTalk will be taking off for the Thanksgiving holiday but will resume next week. For breaking news over the weekend (and all the time), check out our Twitter feed: @tvspynews

We are working round-the-clock to fix these issues–thank you all very much for your patience. I’m looking forward to being back at it full-force next week.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Correction: In Tuesday’s ShopTalk, we referred to New York City’s Jim Rosenfield, Scott Weinberger and Andrew Kirtzman and erroneously stated that they were laid off from WNBC. In fact, they were let go by WCBS, not WNBC. We apologize for any confusion.

Correction: In yesterday’s ShopTalk, we erroneously referred to the 1973 inauguration of Richard Nixon as the first presidential inauguration to be televised nationally. Nixon’s inauguration was not the first to be televised nationally, not by a long shot. According to the Smithsonian, the inauguration of Harry S. Truman in 1949 holds that distinction. We regret the error and apologize for any confusion.

Editor’s Note: Vintage Videos

Mr. Lagerkvist was kind enough to share video of WZZM’s investigative series “King of Newaygo” so that we could post it to our YouTube channel and make it available for all to appreciate Jim Rieske’s career. I am interested in posting many more videos of exemplary journalism. If you’re interested in having a video posted, send an email to editor@tvspy.com. (I’ll do my best to thoughtfully consider each request–submissions should be sent with the intention to celebrate, not self-promote).
