Tegna’s NBC affiliate WTLV tops the Jacksonville, Fla., market in total social actions over the last six months, according to Shareablee, while Graham Media’s indie WJXT leads in fans/followers. WTLV’s news director says making social a constant part of the daily news discussion — and listening to the audience on Facebook — has helped move the station into the top slot.
In his book Towers in the Sand, Donn R. Colee Jr. recounts how WJXT Jacksonville, Fla., then owned by the Washington Post Co., scuttled the nomination by President Nixon of Judge G. Harrold Carswell.
Graham Media’s WJXT Jacksonville, Fla., has integrated LTE radios with all of their capabilities and software into 2 GHz Part 74 Broadcast Auxiliary Service channels. Two-way communications via the 2 GHz BAS system makes possible internet and newsroom computer system connectivity for reporters in the field, supports FTP file transfers, enables bidirectional intercom with the station, passes teleprompter data and sends return video from the station with only milliseconds of latency.
