2 Tribune Media removes their broadcast stations, subchannels, and cable network WGN America from Spectrum systems in a number of markets due to the lack of a new retransmission consent agreement with the nation's second largest cable provider. A short one-day extension had been made to 5 p.m. ET is allow Spectrum viewers to watch New Year's Day event content on Tribune stations, averting a midnight deadline on December 31, but the stations are pulled at that point among an impasse between Tribune and Spectrum parent Charter Communications. The dispute is settled on January 11 in the early morning hours, on undisclosed terms. [1][2]
Four months after Julie Chen departs The Talk (in the wake of husband Les Moonves losing his chairmanship at the network), frequent fill-in and Dancing with the Stars judge Carrie Ann Inaba officially joins the host panel of CBS' daytime talk show. [3]
NBC Sports Chicago announces it has reached agreements with Wirtz Corporation and Jerry Reinsdorf to become the exclusive broadcaster for Blackhawks, Bulls and White Sox games beginning this year. The deal marks the departure of all three teams from WGN-TV, with the Cubs expected to follow, albeit through the creation of their own network. [4]
3 National Geographic Channel puts the current season of StarTalk on hiatus while the network investigates sexual harassment claims against host Neil deGrasse Tyson. On February 15, it was announced that Cosmos: Possible Worlds would be delayed from its original March premiere due to the ongoing investigation. [5][6]
6 NBC televises a late Sunday afternoon NFL Wild Card playoff for the first time (Fox instead broadcast the Seahawks/Cowboys game the previous evening), where the Philadelphia Eagles escape Soldier Field in Chicago with a 16–15 victory after a game-ending field goal miss by Bears kicker Cody Parkey. The game serves as a sizable lead-in to the Golden Globes, which starts on time. Parkey appeared on the network's Today five days later to talk about his miss, a move that rankled the Bears front office as well as local sportswriters and fans. [7][8]

The 76th Golden Globe Awards airs on NBC, hosted by Sandra Oh and Andy Samberg. It is the first telecast in an eight-year deal to keep the ceremony on the network. In addition, Oh became the first Asian performer to make history as a host and a winner for her role in Killing Eve. Green Book and Bohemian Rhapsody won as Musical or Comedy and drama respectively. The Kominsky Method and The Americans win top honors as best television comedy and drama. Afterwards, E! issued an apology to The Good Place star Jameela Jamil during their live red carpet telecast of the Golden Globes, in which they accidentally typed in Kamilah Al-Jamil instead of the actress' real name. Kamilah (played by Rebecca Hazlewood) is the sister of Jameela's character Tahani Al-Jamil, who that character is famously envious of for being one-upped, and Jamil later tweets that it 'is legit the funniest thing I have ever seen' and that it was 'a joyous mistake'. [10][11]
7 NBC affiliate WHEC-TV/Rochester, New York announces the firing of chief meteorologist Jeremy Kappell, three days after a weathercam network check-in of area cameras during a weather segment saw him appear to refer to the city's Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Park with the racial epithet "coon" during a glance at the park's weathercam. Kappell asserts that he was speaking too fast and stumbled over his words, which he cited occurred with other media personalities in the past including ESPN's Mike Greenberg. However, Rochester mayor Lovely Warren, an African-American, called for Kappell's firing because it was "wrong, hurtful and infuriating." The station apologized for not stepping in to address the matter immediately. [12]
8 After nearly two years in office, President Donald Trump gave his first prime time address, to talk about the partial federal government shutdown, specifically its key issue, proposed funding for the Mexico–United States barrier. The networks also aired a response from Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer following the address, in which they explained their opposition to Trump's proposal to fund the border wall and to reopen the departments affected by the shutdown. The shutdown ended on January 25 with a short-term deal to re-open to the government that does not include funding for the border wall. [13][14]
10 Tribune Media's Fox affiliate KCPQ Tacoma-Seattle fires a news editor after reviewing a video footage of President Donald Trump's presidential address on immigration that the station aired on its 10 p.m. newscast that appears to be altered, which showed a more orange-toned Trump with his tongue protruding after making a statement, making him more saturated and the tongue doctored. In a statement from news director Erica Hill (unrelated to the CNN anchor): "This does not meet our editorial standards, and we regret if it is seen as portraying the president in a negative light." [15]
Netflix announced that its upcoming series OBX would begin production in South Carolina instead of shooting in North Carolina due to the latter state's House Bill 2, otherwise known as "the bathroom bill," which requires transgender people use the public restrooms that correspond to the sex on their birth certificate. Although North Carolina repealed a section of the law in 2017, it didn't completely overturn it due to a clause that forbids municipalities from enacting nondiscrimination ordinances for any group not included in North Carolina state law until 2020. [16]
In an emotion-filled final broadcast, Mark Rosen bids farewell to WCCO-TV/Minneapolis, retiring after a nearly 50-year tenure as sports reporter/anchor for the CBS O&O. [17]
11 Fox announces they do not intend to bid on the Fox Sports Networks that federal regulators have said The Walt Disney Company must divest after Disney completes its acquisition of many of the 21st Century Fox assets. The move paves the way for other companies to go after some or all of the 22 regional services. [18]
Megyn Kelly officially exits NBC News, receiving the full amount due her in her $69 million contract and being free to join any other employer. The announcement comes four days after Al Roker, Dylan Dreyer, Craig Melvin and Sheinelle Jones were named permanent co-hosts of Today Third Hour, which replaced Kelly's Megyn Kelly Today following its October 2018 cancellation in the wake of Kelly's controversial blackface comments. [19][20]
13 The 24th Critics' Choice Awards are broadcast on The CW. Taye Diggs serves as emcee of the ceremonies, which combines accolades in both film and television, and is highlighted by ties in two categories, best film actress (Glenn Close for The Wife and Lady Gaga for A Star Is Born) and best actress in a TV film or limited series (Amy Adams for Sharp Objects and Patricia Arquette for Escape at Dannemora). [21]
14 Executive producers Alec Sulkin and Rich Appel, along with creator Seth MacFarlane, confirm Family Guy would no longer write jokes against the LGBT community due to societal changes which have seen the jokes become frowned upon over time. The decision was confirmed in a fourth wall break in the January 13 episode entitled "Trump Guy" in which Peter Griffin (voiced by MacFarlane) tells President Trump that Family Guy would be trying to "phase out" gay jokes. [22]
16 Brittany Noble, a former news anchor at CBS affiliate WJTV/Jackson, Mississippi, files a complaint against the station and its owner Nexstar Media Group with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission over workplace discrimination. Noble, who is African-American and a recent mother, cites racial harassment and issues involving management refusing to allow her to wear her hair naturally and her attire, along with improper accommodations which did not allow her to properly pump breast milk. She was dismissed without explanation from the station in May 2018 during time off she took after her grandfather's death, and not told she was terminated until months later. [23][24]
Sinclair Broadcast Group launches Stirr, a free over-the-top content platform. The platform mostly carries Sinclair's owned-and-operated digital subchannel networks and customized feeds from their local broadcast stations. [25]
17 Bob Costas officially exits NBC Sports, ending a tenure with the company that spanned over 38 years. Costas noted that his interest in the sports properties NBC held at the time had waned (he had retired from NFL coverage after the 2016 season), and that his favorite sport, baseball, was not among them, as it hadn't since 2000. He has indicated that he would like to continue on television, suggesting a talk show in the vein of his previous shows On the Record and Later. Costas continues his work for MLB Network. [26]
Former CBS Corporation CEO Leslie Moonves states he will challenge his firing and denial of his $120 million golden parachute payout from the network in arbitration, and continues to deny the sexual harassment allegations which resulted in his firing the previous fall. [27]
Netflix offers an apology to Julie Morin, the mayor of Lac-Megantic, Quebec, Canada, over the use of footage that was featured in the 2018 horror film Bird Box, which had used news footage of the community's 2013 rail disaster, which resulted in the destruction of the town's centre and the death of 47 people. Netflix licensed the footage of the disaster from the stock image vendor Pond 5, who then issued a statement that the footage "was taken out of context," and wanted to "sincerely apologize." Pond 5 footage of the crash was also used in Netflix's Travelers (which was removed). Netflix then stated that they had no plans to remove the footage from Bird Box despite further complaint by Quebec Culture Minister Nathalie Roy on the subject, but changed their minds on March 14 and agreed to remove the scene from future airings on the streaming service. [28][29]

General Motors pulls their Chevrolet "Real People, Not Actors" ad campaign for the time being after Toyota, Honda, and Ford each challenged the series' claims as misleading. The complaints were brought to light by the consumer advocacy organization Consumer World, which claimed GM's data is made up from late model vehicles (2014-2015) rather than new vehicle stock, some of which are models now out of production. The Ipsos survey was regarded by the other three manufacturers and Consumer World as outdated. [33]
18 Wendy Williams extends her hiatus from her eponymous daytime talk show dating back to the holidays due to medical complications from Graves' disease and a shoulder injury, her second such break within a year. The show would feature guest hosts from January 28 on, until Williams is declared medically fit to return; she would return March 4. [34]
Singer R. Kelly's longtime record label, RCA Records, officially drops him from their label, in the aftermath and fallout of Lifetime's docu-series Surviving R. Kelly which had already resulted in music retailers, artists, and radio stations pulling his music, refusing to put further promotional effort into its sale or addition to playlists, and stopping the sale of catalog collaborations and duets with Kelly. [35]
21 After a five-year battle court battle over copyrighted material and fair use pertaining to news gathering and sharing, Fox News Channel and TVEyes, a media monitoring service which mainly archives the video of television news services for the purposes of permanent text transcription of closed captioning text, reached a settlement, in which TVEyes agreed to a permanent injunction and will no longer be permitted to carry copyrighted content from Fox News Channel and the broadcast Fox network's Fox News Sunday. [36]
Fox News Channel immediately issues an apology and blames a "technical error" for a graphic that ran during Fox & Friends earlier in the morning that reported the death of Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who was very much alive at the time of the incident and recently had surgery to treat cancerous nodules, of which she had since recovered. Steve Doocy told viewers "At the beginning of (Ainsley Earhardt's) interview with the process, a technical error in the control room triggered a graphic of Ruth Bader Ginsberg with a date on it.... That was a mistake. That was an accident." Earhardt also apologized, calling it a "big mistake". [37]
22 With Tom Hanks as the sole guest and a surprise cameo by Milo Ventimiglia, TBS' Conan returns from a three-month hiatus with a retooled format that's a departure from host Conan O'Brien's previous late-night work: a shorter program length (from 60 to 30 minutes), which is more comedy-intensive, and without a house band or host's desk, and a more casual-style wardrobe. Longtime sidekick Andy Richter also returns. [38]
23 Viacom announces its intent to buy free Internet television provider Pluto TV for $340 million. [39]
27 Rent: Live airs on Fox to a mixed-to-negative critical reception, with the caveat that portions of the adaptation of the Tony-winning musical used pre-taped dress rehearsal footage mixed with live presentation due to Brennin Hunt, who plays Roger, injuring his foot during the last-minute rehearsals. The prerecorded dress rehearsal was carried for the majority of the show, with only the final fifteen minutes of the program, which consisted of the end of the show and an encore performance of "Seasons of Love" featuring the original Broadway cast, broadcast live. The special posted a 1.4 rating among adults 18-49 and 3.42 million viewers, ranking the lowest among NBC and Fox's musical specials throughout the 2010s, though the adult content of Rent meant it could not meet ratings parity with the higher rated family-friendly productions. The lack of understudies was also criticized by reviewers and social media, citing Hunt's accident. [40][41]
[42]
28 CNN's live Town Hall broadcast, which featured Democratic California Senator Kamala Harris, who on January 21, announced her campaign to run for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in the 2020 United States presidential election and moderated by host Jake Tapper, drew 1.95 million viewers in the 10 o'clock hour, making it the largest for a single-candidate town hall in CNN history. [43]
29 Empire actor Jussie Smollett is said to be the victim of an attack by two unknown individuals in the Streeterville section of Chicago during the early morning hours. Chicago police say the suspects yelled racial and homophobic slurs at Smollett, who is African-American and gay, then punched him and poured a chemical substance on him. One of the attackers also put a rope around Smollett's neck. The incident was initially investigated as a hate crime. However, law enforcement suspected that Smollett paid the pair, later identified as brothers, to carry out the attack on him. While Smollett has denied any wrongdoing, he was charged on February 20 with filing a false report, which in Illinois is a Class 4 felony. Police claim Smollett staged the attack because he was "dissatisfied with his salary." Smollett was indicted on 16 felony counts of disorderly conduct on March 8. Smollett was later cleared of all charges on March 26. [44][45]
[46][47]
31 Nexstar Media Group announces that three stations owned by Dreamcatcher Broadcasting (ABC affiliate WNEP-TV/ScrantonWilkes-Barre and the combined duopoly of CBS affiliate WTKR and CW affiliate WGNT/Norfolk), which are operated by Tribune Media (which Nexstar is acquiring) under a shared services agreement, would be divested in order to comply with FCC regulations. Nexstar already owns NBC affiliate WAVY-TV and Fox affiliate WVBT in the Norfolk market and maintains a grandfathered SSA between Nexstar-owned NBC affiliate WBRE-TV and CBS affiliate WYOU (owned by Mission Broadcasting) in the Scranton–Wilkes-Barre market.

3 The New England Patriots defeat the Los Angeles Rams by a score of 13–3 in Super Bowl LIII from Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, in a game generally criticized for slow and dull gameplay. The game aired on CBS in English, and ESPN Deportes in Spanish (with said ESPN Deportes audio simulcast on CBS's SAP channel). The halftime show featured Maroon 5 with guests Travis Scott and Big Boi. The performance included a brief animated sequence featuring the cast of SpongeBob SquarePants, including Rodger Bumpass in his role as Squidward Tentacles, based on and including footage from the 2001 episode "Band Geeks". This was an intended tribute to the show's creator Stephen Hillenburg, who passed away in November from ALS. The sequence was a result of a petition that garnered over 1.1 million signatures. The ratings, however, were the lowest since Super Bowl XLIII in 2009, with a 44.9 rating, down 5 percent from the Super Bowl LII telecast in 2018. [50][51]

4 Just a year after it was announced as its next Broadway adaptation, NBC announced that it is canceling the scheduled May 27 performance of Hair Live! to fully focus on general audience broad-audience live musicals. This is the third time in recent years that NBC has postponed or scrapped a live production, as scheduling conflicts have resulted in Jennifer Lopez putting plans to bring Bye Bye Birdie Live! to television on hold, likewise with a planned adaptation of A Few Good Men Live. [55][56]

In an interview with ESPN's Outside the Lines, longtime NBC Sports anchor Bob Costas said he was dropped from the network's coverage of Super Bowl LII after remarks he made a few months earlier at a University of Maryland symposium that the sport of football "destroys people's brains." Costas was told by executives at NBC that the comments "crossed the line." Additionally, NBC forbade Costas from sharing an essay he had written regarding the 2015 film Concussion because it was in the process of bidding for the rights to the NFL's Thursday Night Football package at the time. Costas officially departed NBC after 40 years in January. [65]
11 Following an investigation into a growing amount of sexual harassment allegations which had already seen him removed from Rooster Teeth's online series RWBY and a number of upcoming anime convention appearances, dubbing company Funimation severs ties with voice actor Vic Mignogna, removing him from all current roles. [66][67]
Corday Productions files a breach of contract and fraud lawsuit against Sony Pictures Television – in the Los Angeles County Superior Court involving Days of Our Lives, for which Sony co-produces the series with Corday and NBC, along with handling international distribution. The suit seeks more than $20 million in restitution on allegations by Corday that include, among other claims, that SPT forced it to absorb budget deficits for producing the NBC soap opera, had declined to offer Days to certain foreign territories including Great Britain and France (even as Corday's share of distribution revenues decreased by over 50% in recent years) and failed to pay millions of dollars in profits, in an effort to "eliminate competition" with CBS's The Young and the Restless, a series Corday holds a 1% stake in, but is majority-owned by SPT and has maintained the #1 ratings position among American soaps for years. Representatives for Sony described the claims made in the suit – which was filed over a month after NBC renewed Days for a fifty-fifth season – as "meritless." [68][69]
During a rally for Donald Trump in El Paso, Texas, a supporter of the President's entered the section reserved for news media and attacked Ron Skeans, a photojournalist for the BBC. According to the broadcaster, "Skeans was violently pushed and shoved by a member of the crowd." However, he was not hurt and security removed the man. After calls from journalism advocates to condemn the incident, the White House asked for civility among future attendees of a Trump event. [70]
15 Apollo Global Management officially acquires Cox Media Group's 14 television stations, along with its entire Dayton cluster that consists of CBS affiliate WHIO-TV, radio sisters WHIO-AM& FM, WHKO, and WZLR/W266BG, and newspapers Springfield News-Sun and Dayton Daily News, the latter cluster retaining its legacy in the market due to Cox's origins that began in 1889 with the purchase of the Daily News by founder James M. Cox. The deal, estimated to be around $3 billion, will also include some joint venture agreements with Cox's radio, newspaper, and other media properties owned by the Atlanta-based company. This will be Apollo's second television group acquisition, as it has purchased Okemos, Michigan-based Northwest Broadcasting, which owns 21 stations in ten markets and plans to combine them with the Cox assets once the deal is approved by the FCC. The Cox family will continue to have a minority stake in the television properties. [71][72]
Federal authorities arrested United States Coast Guard Lt. Christopher Paul Hasson in Silver Springs, Maryland on gun and drug charges, as well as planning to use the weapons he was stockpiling to assassinate individuals associated with the Democratic Party, activists, and broadcast journalists that he felt had a bias or liberal agenda in order to support his white supremacy beliefs. Prosecutors noted that prior to his arrest Hasson kept a hit list that featured reporters and hosts from CNN and MSNBC on his computer and using research on his targets through way of search engines over the course of two years, believing that killing them would inspire a race war and by advocating "biological attacks followed by attack on food supply" in his manifestos. Among the intended targets Hasson planned to kill on his list that he labeled as "Traitors" included Joe Scarborough, Chris Hayes, Don Lemon and Ari Melber. [73][74]
17 For the first time ever, the Match Game-Hollywood Squares Hour enters reruns as Buzzr, whose parent company Fremantle co-owns the show's archive with MGM Television, adds the show to its schedule. The series had never been seen on television since its first run was canceled in 1984 due to a number of reasons, including cross-ownership complications, the fact that the series archive has not yet been digitized or restored to 21st-century broadcast standards, and the alleged displeasure of co-host Gene Rayburn, who died in 1999, with the series. [75]
21 Actress, director, and producer Mindy Kaling signed a massive six-year, mid-eight-figure overall deal with Warner Bros. Television, ending a relationship she had with Universal Television since her tenure as a regular and writer on The Office in 2005. The news comes days after Universal signed Nahnatchka Khan to a rich four-year overall deal that saw the Fresh Off the Boat creator leave her longtime home at 20th Century Fox TV. [76]
24 The 91st Academy Awards aired on ABC with no host for the first time since the 1989 ceremony. Kevin Hart, who was scheduled to host this event, backed out due to his previous comments regarding the LGBTQ community who found them homophobic, of which he apologized amid the backlash against him. The event saw Netflix with 15 nominations, the most ever for a studio owned by a streaming service. Ten of those nominations were for Roma, resulting in three awards, including Best Director for Alfonso Cuarón. Green Book won three awards, including Best Picture, and Bohemian Rhapsody won four awards, the most for the ceremony, including Rami Malek for Academy Award for Best Actor. Black Panther also received three awards. All categories were broadcast, following the Academy reversing a decision to move the presentation of four categories, Best Cinematography, Best Live Action Short Film, Best Film Editing, and Best Makeup and Hairstyling, to commercial breaks. A similar attempt to shorten the show, by cutting down the number of Best Original Song nominee performances, was reversed on January 31. The event, which clocked in at 3 hours and 19 minutes, 35 minutes shorter than the 2018 telecast, did not feature any montages or comedic bits, posted a 21.6 rating/36 share in metered-market households, up about 14 percent over the 2018 broadcast, with 30 million viewers, even though it would be the second-smallest audience on record since the 2008 telecast, which had 32 million viewers tuning in.

A news crew from San Francisco's KPIX-TV is robbed of their equipment, and their security guard is shot in the leg at the Oakland Public Library while covering a teachers' strike against the Oakland Unified School District in Oakland, California. Two suspects were arrested soon after. [83]
25 To celebrate its fifth anniversary, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon pays homage to the format of The Larry Sanders Show, airing dramatic behind the scenes moments with guests Tina Fey, Robert Irwin, and the band Florida Georgia Line, and during cameos by Ben Stiller and Robert De Niro, who all secretly express animosity at Fallon (and vice versa) during the show's taping. The episode ended with a cameo from the show's executive producer, Lorne Michaels. [84]
Tribune Media's CW affiliate KDAF-TV/DallasFt. Worth forms a partnership with Urban One's Rhythmic Top 40 KBFB to launch a pop/lifestyle culture-centric morning show simulcast called The Beat on 33, hosted by the DJs from KBFB's Veda Loca in The Morning program (Veda Loca and co-hosts J-Cruz, Jazzi Black and DJ Kayotik). [85]
26 The D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals is allowing the approved 2018 merger between AT&T and Time Warner (now WarnerMedia) to stand after the court ruled that the Trump Administration's Justice Department had failed to prove that the transaction valued between $85 and $105 billion that would give the nation's largest telecom control over CNN, TBS and TNT amounted to enhanced leverage that would harm the marketplace, a decision that resulted in the merger to go forward. The administration, and notably President Donald Trump, had been against the merger since November 2017, noted by Trump's vocal distaste of CNN and his pledges on the campaign trail to not allow this type of media power consolidation, of which the media industry in general have pointed out that the move was immediately seen through a political perspective, with many suspecting undue interference. Circuit Judge Judith Rogers cited "The government's objections that the district court misunderstood and misapplied economic principles and clearly erred in rejecting the quantitative model are unpersuasive" as a reason for her ruling. [86]
27 In a 66-page ruling that was kept private until now, a $179 million award was handed down by arbitrator Peter Lichtman against 21st Century Fox over a 2015 dispute involving the 2005–2017 crime drama series Bones, in which executive producer Barry Josephson, stars David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel, and Kathy Reichs (a forensic anthropologist who authored the Temperance Brennan novels that formed the basis for the series), filed lawsuits in California state court claiming they had been defrauded by Fox of their rightful profit participation. Lichtman concluded that president Peter Rice, Fox TV CEO Dana Walden, and Fox TV chairman Gary Newman "appear to have given false testimony in an attempt to conceal their wrongful acts." According to the ruling, Fox has taken a "cavalier attitude toward its wrongdoing" and exhibited a "company-wide culture and an accepted climate that enveloped an aversion for the truth" by lying, cheating and committing fraud at the expense of the show's stars and Josephson, who was told by Fox it was their most profitable series, taking in nearly half a billion dollars in its first seven seasons, while it hid the fact that Bones was calculated to be a money loser, which meant there would be no profit sharing (a practice known as Hollywood accounting). Officials at Fox say they will appeal the ruling. [87]
Musician T-Pain, in costume as "Monster", beat fellow singers Gladys Knight (as "Bee") and Donny Osmond (as "Peacock") to win the first season of The Masked Singer. [88]

WarnerMedia News & Sports will oversee CNN, HLN, Turner Sports, Bleacher Report and AT&T SportsNet and be headed by CNN president Jeff Zucker.

Long-term plans are for the company to end the use of founder Ted Turner's name in the upcoming months. [93][94]
5 In the wake of HBO's airing of the controversial documentary Leaving Neverland, a fallout involving the criticism of the special occurs, concerning the credibility of the victims featured in the documentary, of whom were later interviewed by Oprah Winfrey in a follow up special After Neverland that aired March 4 and simulcast with OWN, and a $100 million lawsuit filed by Jackson's estate on February 21, claiming that the four-hour program violates a contractual non-disparagement clause to carry a 1992 concert from Bucharest as part of Jackson's HIStory World Tour. The documentary pulled in an average of about 1.11 million viewers overall for the two nights it aired, making it the third most-watched documentary in HBO's history. Two days later, 20th Century Fox Television, following a decision of the show's producers due to their concerns about the claims made in Leaving Neverland, pulls The Simpsons episode "Stark Raving Dad" – which featured Jackson (who was credited under the pseudonym John Jay Smith) as mental patient Leon Kompowski – from circulation in television reruns and most streaming platforms carrying the program's episode library.

6 In a fiery interview with Gayle King on CBS This Morning, singer R. Kelly vehemently denies that he sexually abused women, allegations for which he faces criminal charges. King was commended on social media for remaining stoic while Kelly at one point got up out of his chair and began to scream and pound his chest. "It wouldn't have done any good if we both got hysterical," King told co-host Norah O'Donnell. Most of the 80-minute-long interview would subsequently be aired in full in a prime time special on March 8. [100][101]
The Democratic National Committee announces it will not allow Fox News to host any of its 2020 presidential primary debates, saying the "network is not in a position to host a fair and neutral debate for our candidates". The move comes on the heels of a New Yorker article (featured in the magazine's March 11 issue) that detailed the close ties between Fox News and the Trump administration, which illustrated Fox News's scuttling of a story by now-former columnist/on-air contributor Diana Falzone about Trump's alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels in order to protect Trump during his candidacy and the dual influence of Fox News pundits and Trump on their respective rhetoric and the administration's policies. The decision sparks a debate, with many liberals and progressives supporting the move citing concerns about potential bias creeping into Fox News' debate coverage due to the network's conservative slant and Republicans and some moderate Democrats contending the move would be counterproductive to the Democratic Party's efforts to defeat Trump in the 2020 election.

Just one day after Jeopardy! completed airing its first All-Star Games event (won by the team of Brad Rutter, Larissa Kelly and Dave Madden) to commemorate its 35th anniversary, host Alex Trebek announces across the show's social media platforms that he has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer in order to announce the news on his own terms. Acknowledging that his long-term prognosis is extremely poor, Trebek says he intends on honoring his recently signed contract to host the series until the end of the 2021-22 season for as long as he is able.

8 Showtime has announced that it is cancelling SMILF after its final airing March 31 and its distributor ABC Signature Studios suspended a two-year deal with series creator and star Frankie Shaw after lawmakers in Massachusetts — where the Boston-set series at least partially shoots — wrote a letter urging the show's tax incentives to be suspended pending the outcome of ABC Studios' investigation into the series. In addition, local legislators and activists called on the state's Attorney General Office to launch a separate and independent investigation into the matter. The fallout came to light after The Hollywood Reporter did a story in December 2018 involving allegations of abusive behavior and violations of industry rules that resulted in one performer leaving the series amid claims her contract was breached due to two mishandled sex scenes, and numerous employees contacting Disney's anonymous tip line about an array of issues and complaints that attracted the attention of major talent guilds, including allegations of separating writers by race. Shaw, who is being accused of these claims, is vehemently denying any wrongdoing made on the set of SMILF. [107][108]
The New York Yankees buy back a majority stake in their regional sports network, YES Network, from Fox Sports Regional Networks. The buyback is part of Fox Sports Regional Networks' divestiture in the wake of the proposed acquisition of 21st Century Fox by Disney; along with the Yankees, Sinclair Broadcast Group, Amazon and The Blackstone Group will be among the Yankees' minority partners in YES when the purchase closes in July.

11 Fox News Channel issues an apology to its viewers, this time for comments made against U.S. Congresswoman Ilhan Omar (DMN-5) by host Jeanine Pirro during her March 10 broadcast, in which Pirro attacked the Somali-American politician by saying that she is "Sharia-compliant" and has practiced "Sharia-adherence behavior" by wearing a hijab, and went further to add "Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution?" The remarks was also condemned by Hufsa Kamal, who also happens to serve as associate producer for Bret Baier's news show, reminding Pirro that "You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself. K thx." Fox issued a statement saying "We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro's comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar... They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly." Omar also accepted Fox News' apology through a tweet: "Thank you... No one's commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth." Pirro, who has yet to make an apology, later stated that she would offer an invitation to have Omar on the show. On March 12, three advertisers, NerdWallet, Letgo, and Novo Nordisk, announced that they'll no longer air spots on Justice with Judge Jeanine due to her rhetoric opinions, which comes at the same time her colleague Tucker Carlson is also facing backlash over anti-Semitic, racial, and homophobic comments he made over the last decade on the Bubba the Love Sponge Show (which variously aired over broadcast radio and Sirius XM Satellite Radio) that were unearthed and placed online by Media Matters, which Carlson has defended and doubled down upon and the watchdog organization says they plan to keep monitoring their actions. Fox News cancelled the March 16 broadcast and five days later (on March 21) announced that a March 23 episode of Pirro's show will not air because of the controversy. Pirro's social accounts also goes silent as reports confirmed that the host was placed on suspension until March 30. President Donald Trump posted a series of Twitter feeds supporting Pirro during her suspension. [110][111]

12 CBS Corporation announces its has acquired Lionsgate's 50% interest in Pop. CBS – which will operate the network as part of its CBS Cable Networks unit – acquired a 50% stake in the network (then known as the TV Guide Network, and in the process of phasing out the scrolling grid that it had been using since it launched as a program listings service in 1981) from Lionsgate for an investment of $100 million. Terms of the deal were not immediately disclosed by either company. [115][116]
13 CBS Sports announces it will trade the rights for Super Bowl LVI in 2022 to NBC in exchange for Super Bowl LV. The move is made to prevent a conflict between the National Football League championship and the 2022 Winter Olympics, which NBC holds the rights to and is scheduled to begin broadcasting two days prior. Furthermore, it allows CBS to position the game alongside its coverage of the NCAA Men's Final Four in 2021. [117][118]

Matt Shepard, Kirk Gibson, and Jack Morris become Fox Sports Detroit's new full-time Detroit Tigers announcers. They are succeeding long-time announcers Mario Impemba and Rod Allen, whose contracts weren't renewed due to an alleged physical altercation after a game last season, which caused then-backup announcers Shepard and Gibson to take their places for its final weeks. [120]
Crown Media cuts ties with actress Lori Loughlin, who starred in the Hallmark Channel drama series When Calls the Heart and the Garage Sale Mystery film series for Hallmark Movies & Mysteries, following her indictment and arrest stemming from her involvement in a bribery scandal centering on college admissions that also snared fellow actress Felicity Huffman (whose husband, actor William H. Macy, was also named as an unindicted co-conspirator). Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli are accused of paying "bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters [Olivia Jade and Bella Giannulli] designated as recruits to the USC crew team — despite the fact that they did not participate in crew — thereby facilitating their admission to USC," according to the 200-page indictment. Hallmark also decided to pull all episodes (including those that were scheduled to air) of When Calls the Heart, with the show's producers confirming on March 18 that her character, Abigail Stanton, would be written out, likewise with the Garage Sale Mystery films, including one that was about to begin production before her arrest. Netflix also fired Loughlin from her recurring role as her former Full House character Rebecca "Becky" Donaldson in Fuller House, on which she appeared in 13 episodes over four seasons. [121][122]
15 The Federal Communications Commission adopted new rules that was approved by the United States Congress in 2018, called the Reimbursement Expansion Act, which will go towards reimbursing FM stations as well as low-power and translator television stations that were "forced to incur costs to permanently relocate, temporarily or permanently modify their facilities, or purchase or modify auxiliary facilities" due to the ongoing television repack. The rules apply to all FM signals that were licensed and operating on April 13, 2017 that shared a tower with a repacked television station, of which will be eligible for reimbursement, estimated at $150 million, including costs for relocating, modifications of facilities or to build auxiliary facilities while a television station was rebuilding their facilities. A statutory deadline have been put in place to implement the rules, ending March 23. [123]
18 The 2019 NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Tournament bracket, intended to be announced during a special program on ESPN at 7 p.m. EDT, is inadvertently revealed in full within side-screen on-screen graphics four hours earlier by sister network ESPNU, during a rerun of the Bracketology analysis program from ESPN the evening before. As a result, some schools cancelled public celebrations for teams expecting to be placed in the tourney and their fans, or had to change those celebrations, along with some schools trying to keep the early news from their athletes in order to not ruin their celebrations. ESPN issued an apology for the error. [124]
19–20 The Walt Disney Company's purchase of 21st Century Fox consummates. This is the second spin-off of assets from the former News Corporation in five years; the company spun off its print assets in 2014. What is now Fox Corporation now only holds the Fox Broadcasting Company, its owned-and-operated station group, MyNetworkTV, and its news and national sports bureaus. [125]
20 Nexstar Media Group and Tribune Media announce that the former will sell 19 television stations to Tegna Inc. and the E. W. Scripps Company in separate deals worth $1.32 billion, in a move to reduce Nexstar's national ownership reach under the federally-imposed 39% cap and alleviate ownership conflicts with existing Nexstar properties. Tegna will acquire eleven stations (Tribune-operated WTICWCCT/Hartford, WPMT/Harrisburg, WNEP-TV/ScrantonWilkes-Barre, WQAD-TV/Quad Cities and KFSM-TV/Fort SmithFayetteville and Nexstar-operated WATNWLMT/Memphis, WOIKCWI/Des Moines and WZDX/Huntsville) for $740 million and Scripps will purchase eight stations (Tribune-operated WPIX/New York City, WSFL-TV/Miami-Fort Lauderdale, KSTU/Salt Lake City, WTKRWGNT/Norfolk, WXMI/Grand Rapids and WTVR-TV/Richmond, and Nexstar-owned KASW/Phoenix) for $580 million. Scripps gave Nexstar an option to buy back WPIX (which was likely divested as the station operates its digital signal on VHF, which, as the New York market accounts for 6.44% of U.S. television households, would put Nexstar over the national cap as it does not cannot be counted for 50% of its total reach under the "UHF discount") between March 31, 2020 and December 31, 2021. Due to the sale of WPIX, following closure of the Nexstar–Tribune merger, KTLA/Los Angeles will become Nexstar's largest station by market size. [126][127]

2 Publisher Little, Brown and Company released The Legends of Greemulax, the teen fantasy novel written by Ellie Kemper's titular character in The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt. The book was actually written by Sarah Mlynowski. The release coincided with April being Child Abuse Prevention month, as NBCUniversal is making a donation from the proceeds in support of Prevent Child Abuse America. [129]
Vin Di Bona Productions, the producers of America's Funniest Home Videos, placed Vice President of business development and strategy Philip Shafran on administrative leave in the wake of a March 19 lawsuit filed against the company by three unidentified women, who claimed that they were being racially and sexually harassed during their tenure in 2018, as well as their dismissal in October of that year, and, according to one of the women, discovered the following November that the company had moved her from a salaried employee status to that of an hourly employee in July, all of which pointed to actions directed by Shafran. The women are hoping to seek a jury trial, which is pending in the Los Angeles County Superior Court. [130]
3 Marshall Broadcasting files a lawsuit against Nexstar Media Group in the New York Supreme Court, accusing it of sabotaging the value of Fox affiliates KPEJ/OdessaMidland, KMSS-TV/Shreveport and KLJB/Davenport for future direct acquisition under a waiver of duopoly rules (which allow groups to seek approval for duopolies involving two of a given market's four highest-rated stations), being undermined in favor of Nexstar under the terms of Marshall's financing deal with that group (which Nexstar is alleged to have threatened to withdraw), being given an $16-million overevaluation of the collective worth of the stations, and withholding retransmission fees. (Prior to the 2014 deal with Nexstar, which was designed to appeal to FCC efforts to encourage broadcast ownership by minorities and address conflict-related divestitures through Nexstar's acquisitions of Communications Corporation of America and Grant Broadcasting, Marshall owner Pluria Marshall Jr. [who is African American] had struggled to obtain financing for station purchases – including a rebuffed 2008 offer to buy stations from eventual Nexstar acquiree Media General – dating to the late 1980s.) Nexstar issued a statement calling the allegations "spurious and without merit.” [131][132]
4 News-Press & Gazette Company (NPG) announces its intent to acquire ABC affiliate KQTV/St. Joseph, Missouri from Heartland Media for $13.65 million. The deal would result in News-Press & Gazette maintaining a monopoly on broadcasting and print media in St. Joseph (where the company is headquartered) as it already owns the namesake St. Joseph News-Press newspaper, the NPG-founded trio of KCJO-LD (CBS), KNPG-LD (NBC) and KNPN-LD (Fox), and local news rebroadcast channel News-Press NOW. While it would be a quadropoly in structure, the purchase may not violate FCC broadcast ownership rules as KQTV is a full-power station while NPG's three existing stations are all low-powered. (FCC local ownership rules restrict a single broadcasting company from owning more than two of the four highest-rated television stations in the same market, but applies the rule exclusively to full-power stations due to their broader signal reach.) However, it could be subject to antitrust issues under DOJ review, due to the concentration of St. Joseph's print and broadcast media outlets under one entity in exceedance of its measure of market concentration constituting a tight oligopoly under the Herfindahl-Hirschman Index.

8 Nexstar Media Group announces its intent to sell the Indianapolis duopoly of WISH-TV (The CW) and WNDY-TV (MyNetworkTV) to Circle City Broadcasting I Inc. (owned by DuJuan McCoy, who already owns CBS/Fox affiliate WEVV-TV/Evansville through his existing company Bayou City Broadcasting) for $42.5 million. The sale of the two stations – which Nexstar acquired as part of its 2016 acquisition of Media General – hinges on obtaining a waiver from FCC rules that prohibit common ownership of two of the four highest-rated stations within a media market to acquire the duopoly of WXIN (Fox) and WTTV and satellite WTTK (CBS) as part of its merger with Tribune Media. [137][138]
By this date, ATSC 3.0 test broadcasts had begun in Phoenix, Arizona; Dallas, Texas; and Lansing, Michigan. There had been plans to use Phoenix as the "test pad" for all-ATSC 3.0 broadcasting in 2018; since no consumer ATSC 3.0 receivers have yet been publicly released, these plans have been postponed indefinitely. [139][140]
9 Sara Gilbert announces she will step down as co-host and moderator of The Talk at the end of its ninth season. Gilbert – who has been part of the CBS talk show's panel since she created it in 2010 – cited difficulty balancing her day-to-day role on the show with her acting opportunities (including her role as Darlene Conner on the Roseanne spin-off The Conners, which ABC renewed for a second season two weeks prior) and her desire to produce other projects for her decision to leave the show, in order to lighten her workload so she can spend additional time with wife Linda Perry and their three children. Gilbert did not disclose whether she will retain her role as executive producer of the show. [141][142]
Professional gambler James Holzhauer establishes one of the most dominant runs in the history of the game show Jeopardy! with the game show's first-ever six-figure single-day winnings totals. Holzhauer won $110,914 during the April 9 episode, then surpassed that with a $131,127 win on April 17; combined with three other single-day totals over $80,000, Holzhauer now holds the top five single-day totals in Jeopardy! history, pushing the previous record of $77,000 (set by Roger Craig in 2010) to sixth place. By April 23, Holzhauer had become only the third millionaire in the show's history, following Ken Jennings and Brad Rutter. Holzhauer achieved his totals largely through aggressive but successful wagers on Daily Doubles and Final Jeopardy! clues. [143][144]
11 PBS member station WGBY-TV SpringfieldHolyoke, Massachusetts (a semi-satellite of Boston's WGBH-TV and licensed to parent organization, the WGBH Educational Foundation) and the six-station local network of New England Public Radio announce a merger between the two organizations, rebranding as New England Public Media. The newly-formed organization will take advantage of the two entities' strength to provide better news and arts coverage of Western Massachusetts, with WGBHEF investing $6 million over six years in the new venture. All owners of the various stations involved (including the WGBHEF for WGBY, and Amherst College, American International College, UMass and the New England Public Radio Foundation for NEPR's stations) will retain control of their individual licenses and facilities.

25–27 ABC (via its ESPN on ABC division) joins sister networks ESPN, ESPN2, and NFL Network in airing the 2019 NFL Draft for the first time live and in its entirety, as a secondary broadcast hosted by ESPN's College GameDay personnel over the course of three days focused on the stories and players of the draft rather than ESPN's traditional data and team-focused broadcast. Singer Taylor Swift uses ABC's coverage to promote the midnight launch of "Me!", the first single off her upcoming untitled seventh album. [153][154]

3 Sinclair Broadcast Group and Entertainment Studios (through their joint venture, Diamond Holdings) buys Fox Sports Networks from The Walt Disney Company for $10.6 billion. Disney was ordered by the U.S. Justice Department to sell FSN as part of its purchase of 21st Century Fox last year due to antitrust concerns over its ownership of ESPN Inc. The RSN group will join Sinclair's existing portfolio of sports properties, which include pending joint ventures for YES Network (in conjunction with the New York Yankees and Amazon) and upcoming Marquee Sports Network (in partnership with the Chicago Cubs) as well as interests in Stadium and Ring of Honor. It will also mark Entertainment Studios's second major cable network acquisition, following the company's 2017 purchase of The Weather Channel. [157][158]

5 CBS News announces anchor changes to its two flagship newscasts. Norah O'Donnell is named anchor of the CBS Evening News (succeeding Jeff Glor), and John Dickerson will become a correspondent for 60 Minutes (on which O'Donnell also serves as and will remain a correspondent). Succeeding them as co-anchors of CBS This Morning alongside original co-anchor Gayle King, effective May 20, will be existing co-anchor of its Saturday edition, Anthony Mason, and correspondent Tony Dokoupil. The news division also announces that the Evening News will move from its longtime home at the CBS Broadcast Center in New York City to the network's Washington, D.C. bureau in the fall, which would make it the second nightly network newscast to originate from the Washington metropolitan area, after PBS NewsHour. [160]
6 Tegna Inc. announces it will purchase the digital multicast assets of Cooper Media – Justice Network and Quest – for $77 million. The acquisition covers the 85% interest in the two networks that Tegna does not already own. As part of the transaction agreement, Brian Weiss, president and general manager of Cooper Media, will become a Tegna executive upon closure of the deal (expected to occur by the end of the second quarter of 2019) and continue to handle the operations of Justice and Quest. [161]
Allen Media Broadcasting (owned by Byron Allen, founder/president/CEO of Entertainment Studios) announces its intent to purchase the Bayou City Broadcasting's four television stations – the Evansville, Indiana duopoly of CBS primary WEVV-TV and Fox affiliate WEEV-LD (which is simulcast on WEVV-DT2) and the Lafayette, Louisiana duopoly of KADN (Fox) and KLAF-LD (NBC) – from the latter group's owner, DuJuan McCoy, for $165 million. The purchase would mark Allen's entry into broadcast television ownership, and would likely provide financing for McCoy's pending purchase of WISH-TV and WNDY in Indianapoils (though his new company, Circle City Broadcasting) from Nexstar Media Group. [162][163]
WJZ-TV/Baltimore announces the termination of Mary Bubala after the anchor seemed to suggest during an interview with a Loyola University Maryland professor that African-American women were not fit to be the city's mayor. "Is this a signal that a different kind of leadership is needed to move Baltimore City forward," Bubala asked, referring to the resignation of two mayors, both black women. The CBS owned-and-operated station apologized via statement for the remarks made by Bubala, who had been employed by WJZ-TV for 25 years. [164]
7 During NBC Sports Chicago's live broadcast of the Cubs game with the Miami Marlins at Wrigley Field, a fan can be seen flashing an OK symbol behind Doug Glanville as the former player was delivering analysis. Believing that the gesture was intended to be racist (the Anti-Defamation League has noted it is used to declare white power), the Cubs said in a statement that the fan would not be allowed at Wrigley Field "indefinitely." [165]
8 Billy Bush is named the new host of the syndicated infotainment newsmagazine Extra, which will relaunch as Extra Extra on September 9 with its new base of Fox Television Stations carrying the program in major markets after moving from NBC's owned stations. The series will expand its focus from entertainment news to pop culture, sports and politics, airing from a new broadcast center and newsroom at The Burbank Studios (by coincidence, where Billy Bush's former program for NBCUniversal Television Distribution, Access Hollywood, originated until 2015), while continuing to report from bureaus in L.A. and New York and establishing new outposts in Nashville and Las Vegas. The program will continue in syndication via Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. Bush, who is expected to succeed Mario Lopez, is an Extra alumni, starting out as their correspondent before joining Access. It is his first hosting gig since Access fired him in 2016 over the controversial tape in which Donald Trump made misogynistic remarks toward women in 2005. [166]
The Trump administration for the first time will require pharmaceutical companies to include the price of prescription drugs in television advertisements if the cost exceeds $35 per month beginning this Summer. The new rules, put in place by the Department of Health and Human Services, and for which has been controversial despite bipartisan support, will affect all direct-to-consumer television advertisements for drugs covered by Medicare or Medicaid, and must include the list price, also known as the wholesale acquisition price (updated every quarter), along with disclaimers that provide a list of potential side effects and a added message, “if you have insurance that covers drugs, your cost may be different.” While the companies have agreed to the new rules, it could be challenged by the drug industry, which argues that revealing the list price will confuse consumers and could violate the companies’ First Amendment rights, while the Pharmaceutical Research and Manufacturers of America, concerned that D-T-C television advertising featuring the costs could be confusing for patients, have already set up a website that would link patients to financial assistance for drugs as well as to company websites that provide data on list prices, typical out-of-pocket costs and sources of financial assistance.

13 The 22nd season premiere of Arthur shows schoolteacher Mr. Ratburn marrying another man. While not specifically referred to as gay, it marks the first time the children's animated series has addressed the character's sexuality, with its network PBS Kids indicating the importance of having a diverse representation in their programming. However, the episode was not shown in two southern states due to conservative reasons. In Alabama, Alabama Public Television opted to pre-empt it in favor of a rerun, of which marked the second time since 2005 when the state-owned network replaced a Postcards from Buster episode "Sugartime!" involving Buster visiting a friend who has two mothers with another, while a spokesman for Arkansas Educational Television Network said it had screened the episode before deciding not to air it. [171][172]
14 The Walt Disney Company and Comcast strike a deal, under which Disney will oversee operational control of the streaming video site Hulu effective immediately; a concurring "put/call" agreement would also allow either Comcast to require Disney to buy or, at fair market value, Disney to require Comcast to sell it the latter's 33% interest by January 2024. The deal establishes a minimum total valuation of Hulu at that time of $27.5 billion, which means Comcast could come away with more than $9 billion for its stake as long as it continues to invest in the service. The arrangement is expected to solve a series of minor conflicts between the two companies that saw them battling for a purchase of 20th Century Fox and related television assets (which Disney successfully won), as well as Comcast having agreed to help Disney buy out AT&T’s stake in the service after the latter acquired WarnerMedia. Disney plans to incorporate Hulu into its expanding digital/streaming portfolio with Disney+ that is scheduled to begin in November. [173]
16 Standard Media announces its intent to acquire ABC affiliates WLNE/Providence and KLKN/Lincoln, Nebraska from Citadel Communications for $83 million. Standard Media is indirectly related to the company (founded by investor and former Media General principal shareholder Soohyung Kim through his hedge fund Standard General) that attempted to acquire eleven stations that Sinclair Broadcast Group planned to spin off through its aborted acquisition of Tribune Media, although the company will be founded by Deb McDermott, who was tapped to run the original company. The sale will leave news-based independent WSNN-LD/Sarasota, Florida as Citadel's only remaining television property. [174]

NewsNet Over-the-air multicast/
OTT streaming
January 1 Owned by NewsNet LLC and based on the all-news formats of Cadillac, Michigan low-power station WMNN-LD and Norfolk, Nebraska-based News Channel Nebraska, of which the network's founders were involved in their development, NewsNet will maintain a traditional news wheel format (similar in structure to the 1982–2005 format of HLN, and the formats of defunct all-news networks such as All News Channel and Satellite News Channel), with updates throughout the broadcast day during breaking news events, while excluding political- and panel-based shows that fill the afternoon and nighttime lineups of most cable news channels. In addition to offering local advertising slots, NewsNet – which originated through an unsuccessful 2017 Kickstarter campaign under the working title, the Local News Network (LNN), before its founders opted to obtain investor backing to fund the venture – will offer prospective affiliates airtime for local news inserts, with a turnkey local news production service option available to stations without their own local news departments. [733]
Cleo TV Cable/satellite January 19 Owned by Urban One and launching initially on Spectrum and Xfinity systems (for the latter, it is part of meeting the commitments made by Comcast to obtain approval of its 2011 merger with NBCUniversal to begin carrying ten independently-owned and operated networks, including eight owned and/or operated by minorities, by 2019), Cleo TV – derived from Egyptian ruler Cleopatra – will focus on lifestyle and entertainment programming aimed at women of color in the millennial and Gen X demographic. The network's content will focus on programming that "defies negative and cultural stereotypes of today's modern women," with a broad mix of short- and long-form programming (including travel, home design, relationship and financial advice and cooking programs, as well as talk shows, docu-series, sitcoms and movies). It will also serve as a de facto replacement for Fuse, which was removed on Xfinity systems at the start of the year due to channel drift concerns involving its schedule of low-interest sitcoms and films. [734]
PBS Living OTT streaming March 14 Overseen by PBS Distribution and launching on Amazon's Prime Video Channels subscription service (which already carries two PBS-branded streaming channels, PBS Kids and PBS Masterpiece), PBS Living will feature a mix of lifestyle and how-to content distributed for public television by American Public Television and individual PBS member stations. The $2.99-per-month service, which will also offer an introductory seven-day free trial, will feature a mix of classic and recent programs from the cooking, home, culture and travel genres seen on PBS and the similarly formatted OTA multicast network Create (such as The French Chef, This Old House, Antiques Roadshow, No Passport Required and Christopher Kimball's Milk Street Television), with new content being added each month. [735][736]
Court TV Over-the-air multicast/
OTT streaming
May 8 Announced on December 10, 2018, the E. W. Scripps Company's Katz Networks unit will "reboot" Court TV – utilizing, through Katz/Scripps's acquisition of intellectual property rights to the name, format and other assets from the Turner Broadcasting System, the format originally used by cable network TruTV from its July 1991 launch until December 2007 – as a digital multicast network focusing on live coverage and in-depth analysis of high-profile courtroom proceedings as well as true crime-focused shows from (the cable) Court TV's program library (including some to which soon-to-be sister network Escape has held syndication rights). The network will initially be available on stations owned by Scripps, Tribune Broadcasting (which will likely have its Court TV affiliation agreements inherited by Nexstar Media Group upon closure of its acquisition of Tribune), Entravision Communications, Citadel Communications and Univision Communications, with an initial reach of more than 50% of U.S. television households and concurrent cable carriage of 25% of U.S. cable homes. [737][738]
ACC Network Cable/satellite August 22 The linear ACC Network was initially announced in 2016 by ESPN and the NCAA Division I's Atlantic Coast Conference. ESPN has purchased the rights to ACC football and basketball from the conference's long-time syndication partner Raycom Sports, which has broadcast ACC sporting events from December 1982 until after the 2019 ACC Men's Basketball Tournament. The network will feature live game broadcasts and related coverage of the ACC and its member schools. This also makes the ACC the fourth Division I conference to have a dedicated television network after the Big Ten, Pac-12, and Southeastern Conference. [739]
Disney+ Over-the-top streaming November 12 Similar to sister service ESPN+, Disney+ will be a streaming subscription service featuring original films and series based on new and existing properties, including Marvel and Star Wars content, with Disney CEO Robert Iger also making claims the vast majority of Disney's film library will be available through the service, including previously discontinued titles that were placed into the Disney Vault. [740][741][742]
Apple TV+ Over-the-top streaming Fall Apple Inc. will launch a streaming subscription service with original content available via its Apple TV digital media players. The service will be alternately available through the "Apple TV App" on the Roku and Amazon Fire TV platforms, along with apps allowing the use of Apple's AirPlay technology through several Smart TV's.

KidsClick OTT streaming service/broadcast programming block March 31 KidsClick, a multi-platform children's programming effort developed by Sinclair Broadcast Group, was abruptly discontinued as a syndicated programming block on March 31, less than two years after its July 2017 launch; its companion over-the-top streaming service subsequently wound down operations over the following week. The hybrid service was the first major effort since Vortexx ended in 2014 to provide a children's television lineup on American broadcast television that was not bound to FCC educational programming requirements, providing a daily three-hour block of mostly imported and off-network animated series from the past ten years to its affiliates (largely, those owned and/or operated by Sinclair) and a digital multicast network for national availability (This TV from the block's launch until July 2018, and Sinclair-owned TBD from May 2018 onward). Because of the abrupt closure, stations that carried the daily KidsClick program block began substituting it with paid programming and other syndicated programming, while TBD replaced it with paid programming and an expanded one-hour Wednesday-Friday block of E/I-compliant programs in its former timeslot.

Telemundo As a byproduct of its August 28, 2018, purchase of the license from the Central Texas College Board of Trustees (which was possible as KNCT broadcasts on a channel originally reserved for commercial broadcasting prior to channel 46's establishment as a PBS member station in November 1970), Gray Television – which has held the local affiliation rights for The CW Plus since September 2006 – relocates KWTX-DT2's CW programming to the main channel of the KNCT spectrum. KNCT, which will become part of a duopoly with CBS affiliate KWTX-TV, will also carry programming from MeTV on its DT2 subchannel (with a simulcast on newly established KWTX-DT3) and Start TV on its DT3 subchannel.

KOSA-DT2's former main schedule (including content from the MyNetworkTV programming service) moves to KTLE-LD6 (whose parent station's Telemundo affiliation will also be added as a simulcast on KOSA-DT3), with KOSA-DT3's former Heroes & Icons affiliation concurrently moving to KCWO-DT3 and KTLE-DT7 and Ion Television programming being added to KOSA-DT4.

MyNetworkTV
(as KHII)
With Nexstar taking ownership of KFVE from Gray Television in order for the latter to comply with FCC rules pertaining to its acquisition of CBS affiliate KGMB and NBC affiliate KHNL from Raycom Media, Nexstar changed the station's call letters to KHII (which retains its MyNetworkTV affiliation) and adopted a separate programming inventory featuring additional newscasts produced by Fox-affiliated sister KHON-TV (bringing that station's news output to 43 hours across both stations, the most among Hawaii's television stations) and syndicated shows moved over to the station from KHON and its CW-affiliated DT2 subchannel. Concurrently, KFVE's intellectual unit (including Hawaii News Now newscasts and Hawaii-centric specials as well as syndicated programs) moved to the second digital subchannel of KHNL (downgraded to 4:3 SD due to bandwidth limitations, relegating the HD feed of the former KFVE [which retains its existing "K5" brand as a subchannel-only service] exclusively to statewide pay television providers). Charter Spectrum also moved "K5"'s cable channel position from 5 (SD)/1005 (HD) to 22 (SD)/1022 (HD); Gray later announced that K5 will be replaced with Decades, with its local content moving to KGMB and KHNL. Antenna TV was also relocated to KHNL-DT3, while Grit moved to KHNL-DT4. [751][752]

February 1 Janesville, Wisconsin (Madison) WIFS 57.1 Independent Ion Life Since losing The CW affiliation to WMTV-DT2 in September 2016, the Byrne Acquisition Group-owned WIFS had been a locally focused independent station. The abrupt move to Ion Life and the addition of Ion Television to a new 9th subchannel is part of Ion Media's new strategy to acquire cable/satellite carriage for Ion Life via primary channel must-carry rules (Ion Television's main channel utilizes the national cable feed for Madison area cable carriage). With the move, some of WIFS' local and syndicated content move to TVW, the MyNetworkTV-affiliated second subchannel of WISC-TV (which had carried Ion Television on its third subchannel). [753]

Spring/Summer (TBD)[specify] Los Angeles, California KCET 28.1 Educational independent PBS On April 25, KCETLink Media Group and the KOCE-TV Foundation announced a planned consolidation of the operations of their respective educational stations in Southern California, KCET and Huntington Beach-based PBS station KOCE-TV, by the end of the first half of 2018. KCET – which dismembered from the service in 2011, due to increasing membership costs – will rejoin PBS as a secondary outlet; however, KOCE will remain the primary PBS member station for the Los Angeles market.

Once the merger is completed, both stations will continue to provide their respective existing programming and multicast services; KOCE will also move its operation from the station's existing facility in Costa Mesa (which would be retained as a secondary facility) to KCET's studios in Burbank.

Fall (TBD)[specify] Chicago, Illinois WCIU-TV 26.1 Independent The CW On April 18, 2019, Weigel Broadcasting signed an agreement with CBS Corporation through which WCIU-TV would take over as The CW's Chicago-area affiliate; WPWR-TV – which had been carrying the network's programming since September 1, 2016, when WGN-TV disaffiliated from The CW to allow additional prime time telecasts of Chicago Cubs, White Sox, Bulls and Blackhawks games rather than diverting select games during that daypart to other local stations (among them, WPWR) as it had been doing since 1999 to adhere with preemption restrictions imposed by The CW and predecessor The WB – will continue to serve as an owned-and-operated station of Fox-run MyNetworkTV (although the station's schedule post-CW disaffiliation may be formatted similar to Fox's other non-Fox-O&O stations, prioritizing syndicated programming during the programming service's designated 7:00–9:00 p.m. time slot, while airing the MyNetworkTV schedule in late prime time or late access). WCIU will move its prime time lineup of syndicated programs (including the freshman Tamron Hall Show) and a WLS-TV-produced 7:00 p.m. newscast to low-power sister station WMEU-CD (channel 48, which is simulcast on WCIU-DT2).
