Acme Reports Slight Increase in Station Revenue

Acme Communications, which currently owns and operates three stations in addition to producing the syndicated morning show “The Daily Buzz,” announced that it saw a 2% increase in station revenue in the first quarter, compared to the same period last year.

The 2% increase is from Acme’s “continuing” stations, since the company recently sold off three of its properties (WBXX in Knoxville, WBDT in Dayton, and WCWF in Green Bay). Acme currently owns KWBQ and KASY in Alberquerque-Santa Fe and WBUW in Madison.

“Market conditions continue to improve and we are cautiously optimistic that this positive trend will continue at our three remaining continuing stations and ‘The Daily Buzz’ through the remainder of the year,” said Doug Gealy, Acme’s president and CEO, in a press release.

Revenues at “The Daily Buzz” increased 16% for the quarter.

John Brown Returning to Orlando as Co-Anchor of WOFL’s Morning Newscast

John Brown is joining the anchor desk of WOFL‘s “Fox 35 Morning News.” Brown, who recently served as an anchor-reporter for St. Louis Fox-affiliate KTVI, will begin co-anchoring the weekday morning newscast in June.

Brown is replacing Jacquie Sosa, who left WOFL in March in order to spend more time with her family.

Before joining KTVI, Brown worked as an anchor for the syndicated morning show “The Daily Buzz,” which is based in Orlando.

“I’m thrilled to be coming back to Orlando, a city my family absolutely loves,” Brown said.  I look forward to connecting with FOX 35 viewers and giving them the information they need to start their day.”

With Anchor Lisa Spooner, Cape Coral’s WFTX Adds Extra Hour to Morning Newscast

WFTX in Cape Coral, FL will add an extra hour to the front of its morning newscast beginning in January.  Unlike many stations around the country, though, the Journal Broadcast-owned Fox-affiliate will not be expanding its newscast to 4:30 a.m. Instead WFTX has opted for a more humane 5:00 a.m. start time.

Earlier this month, WFTX added Lisa Spooner (left), who’s known for being somewhat of a morning news specialist.  She will head up the station’s new 5:00 a.m. newscast, drawing on her experience as an anchor and managing editor for KYTX‘s morning news show in Tyler, TX and as a guest host for Acme Communications’ syndicated morning show “The Daily Buzz.”

“We are very excited to have someone of Lisa’s energy, warmth and experience on the ‘Fox 4 Rising’ anchor desk,” said Eric Maze, WFTX’s news director.
