IS THIS REALLY LOCAL?

The concept of hubbing station and newscast operations grows to an absurd degree with the news that EstrellaTV is launching local newscasts in the Houston, Dallas and Miami today…all of them actually produced out of Dallas.

News director Rubén Olague will lead the effort and co-anchor all the newscasts.

He has worked for CNN, CBS, Televisa and Univision.

But how in the hell can you relate from a studio in Dallas to a market 250 miles away (Houston) let alone one 1,300 miles distant (Miami?)

Sorry, we view this hubbing business as a badly-disguised money grab by “broadcasters” who appear to be on the ropes or are just flat-out hucketers.

Lookin’ at you, Sinclair.
