WTHI buying WTWO

Terre Haute, IN

Has anyone else heard about this?

WTHI is buying WTWO... or apparently their parent company is...

I heard that Jessie Walker is going to take over the weather department and Kevin Orpurt will be the #2 guy.... I have friends that work for both stations and both have said they can un-officialy confirm this.

I wonder what this new Terre Haute super station will be like?

It would be against federal law for that to happen.

I am sure that there is an FCC rule about that. Plus, I bet TWO would go out of business before WTHI would buy them. To me, WTHI puts them to shame anyway.

I was at a public event today and Two didn't show, but wTHI did.

Guess this didn't work out quite like you thought. You might want to re-evaluate your "reliable source".

Think about it...why on earth would 10 want to buy 2? They provide virtually no competition in either ratings or ad revenue.

Nielsen audience measurement systems will indicate ratings within a particular designated market area.

And market audits will indicate advertising revenue market share.

As someone who worked in the business for 25+ years in various markets (small, medium & large), it's fairly easy to get a peek at these. In the Terre Haute market, the race isn't even close.

I heard she went out west somewhere. From her past, it seems she never stays in one place very long

I don't care who buys who as long as we remain the home of the hottest back up weather girls on the planet.

Seriously--I'd match our current crop of weathergirls against any market in the country right now. Super Hotties both of 'em.

Not talking about weather presentation skills---who gives a shit about that anyway? If you want a hell of a lot more accurate up to the minute forecast Weather.com beats the hell out of any of our local idiots.
