Mini Bites

Many WB and UPN affiliates will be left in the cold when both networks merge into The CW this year. What about local WB affiliate WSWB? "Everytime this subject is brought up around the office, doors get closed," says one insider. As any reporter can tell you, when doors start getting slammed in people's faces, bad news isn't far behind.

Former WYOU sports anchor John Nugent, the subject of a recent "Where are they now?" profile, is leaving WTSP in Tampa, Florida. Media gossip site Newsblues says his contract isn't being renewed. Did Nugent make that decision, or did management make it for him? Nobody knows.

What's the problem? CW needs an affiliate. The only station with an opening is WSWB.

WSWB has a dual affiliation: primary WB, secondary UPN.
Philly station will be odd man out.

Wise money says they didn't make Nuge an offer, which is a shame. This business is brutal.

John Nugent was the worst sports anchor in the Tampa market. He did a poor job of covering big sports stories!
