Sundance Square and the Stockyards are pretty but after that Fort Worth doesn't have much like Dallas does. Also, remember most of the area media is located in Dallas anyway as well as national news bureaus like NBC News, CNN and Fox News. They won't let the attention get too much on Fort Worth and people won't even see much with the town anyway.
Um, NBC5 is located in Fort Worth as is CBS11, TXA21 and Univision. Also WFAA Channel 8 just signed a lease for a FW studio in the new bustling West 7th development. Guess they wanted to see what it would look like actually having people outside the studio unlike the Dallas studio in Vacant Park.

KDFW Fox 4 is located in Dallas, as is WFAA ABC 8 still. CW33, the PBS station, Telemundo are also located in Dallas. WFAA and KDFW are also much better than CBS11 too and are of the top stations in the country. KDFW broadcasts more local news coverage than any station in the area. KTVT was better as an independent station but I would not want the CBS affilliation to go back to KDFW because they are great as a Fox station. Make CW33 the new CBS affilliate.

Also I am finding nothing on this WFAA channel 8 moving to Fort Worth. You must mean a bureau of the station like they have had in Fort Worth for years. The main station has been located in downtown Dallas for ages and they are not going anywhere.

Also CBS 11 and NBC 5 has Dallas first in the titles and are mostly referred to as a Dallas station since they cover the entire metroplex and Dallas is its anchor. KNBC 4 in Los Angeles and KABC 7 in Los Angeles are located in Burbank and Glendale but they are still Los Angeles stations. A lot of other cities have some of their TV stations located in the suburbs too, like Boston and Miami. WWOR NYC is located in Jersey.

Victory Park is hardly vacant. Try actually going down there some time.

Be careful not to troll again...

Oh and for that WFAA station in W. 7th, here ya go...

I'm guessing they're just moving their already existing office in Fort Worth, but still, that's a plus for that area.

The topic of this thread is ESPN and Sundance Sq. Not what TV stations are where. Stick to topic or thread will be closed.

TO THE MODS: I'm just asking this question and I'm gonna drop the whole "tv station" thing.


.... Tell me, where in that post or MY other posts did I say the MAIN station was moving to W. 7th?


Actually, just forget it. Back on topic.
