They'll probably wait until the local coverage goes continuous (full time).


Most likely; WNBC seems to be ready to pull the trigger, but I'm certain they won't dump SNF tonight. WCBS & WABC both seem pretty close as well.

I just got word from my folks at work that WUSA in Washington is planning to begin their wall-to-wall programming at 4 am Monday. I'm sure the other broadcasters in the region will do much the same thing.

Their "service" twitter account says that they have no plans for a hurricane coverage channel right now. "Keep watching the guide" in case we do!

Why not? If these people choose to live somewhere that has a potential of being hit by a hurricane, they have no one else to blame but themselves. I see nothing wrong with making fun of them. Especially the ones that think they should get handouts from the government for their own poor choices.

What about other areas? "Remove hurricane insert other calamity here?"

Saw no effect yesterday at all in regards to network programming moving over to digital alternates here in NYC

Local Fox affiliate had the world series
Local NBC had the Saints/Broncos game
noticed ABC & My Network had their respective broadcasts
CBS had programming then the 11pm news was for an hour instead of 30 mins

as for this morning shows..few changes


WCBS-2 has the network CBS Morning show (not local)
Channel 55 also under the CBS Flag has the CBS network Show also
so both channels airing the same, probably were guessing the main CBS station would be doing local news..they're not
**UPDATE 8AM HITS and network programming switched to CH 55..NY CBS affiliate now doing their local news

WNBC-4 has their local broadcast..no Today show

FOX-5 has their local morning show

WABC-7 has the network GMA, no local news

and My Network WWOR-9 affiliate has a FOX ownership and is showing local FOX
so two channels showing identical same broadcast

CW affilate WPIX here has no network morning weekday shows..so their local news has been airing a while now even late last night past 11pm, wouldn't be surprised to see some syndicated shows get the boot for local news..so I'll miss out on my Maury,Jerry Springer fix..hah hah

all 3 PBS Affliates ..showing local NJ News aka NJ-Today...interrupts their local Kid shows frequently
WNET-13
WLIW-21
WNJN-50

Those channels now live with WABC and NBC 10 and a CBS Station so far

Exactly. Even here in Ohio, we had about $500 million in damage from Hurricane Ike in 2008. We can't tell someone that it was their own fault that they live in Queens, or Philadelphia.

As of 8:50 AM, CT, I've seen WCBS-2 and WABC-7 from NYC, WCAU-10 (NBC) and WTXF-29 (FOX) from Philly and WJZ-13 (CBS) from Baltimore. However, DirecTV has WCAU incorrectly listed as being from Salisbury, MD!

Possibly ironically, much of the country is subject to earthquake damage of some magnitude. There just hasn't been a big quake outside of the West Coast since 1812.........

Yes there was a Big New Madrid Fault Earthquake in December 1811 that continued into 1812.

February 7, 1812, 0945 UTC (4:45 a.m.); (M ~7.4–8.0[2]) epicenter near New Madrid, Missouri. New Madrid was destroyed. At St. Louis, Missouri, many houses were severely damaged, and their chimneys were toppled. This shock was definitively attributed to the Reelfoot Fault by Johnston and Schweig.

All righty! But by "big" I mean over 6.5. The Valentine one is notable, but no casualties. And Wiki says it was a 5.8. But your stats help illustrate that no part of the country is immune to potential disaster via earthquakes.

And Richie- good info on the New Madrid. What I recall is a report that the Mississippi River flowed backwards for two days.... (I was not there at the time, though.....)
