NBC Boston Spans the Globe (But Not the Herald) II

January 8, 2017

The new TV kid in town has once again wrapped itself around the Boston Globe while stealing the Boston Herald’s lunch money.

This week’s wrapper is similar to the one that ran last Sunday, with the two skinny panels being slightly different.

The two full pages, however, are the same.

Meanwhile, NBC Boston’s heralding continues to be largely Heraldless (the lone exception, as far as we could tell, was a one-third page ad last Tuesday). You would think Channel Everywhere would at least throw an ad into the Sunday Sports section, maybe in the football pages.

But no. Instead, there’s this:

That’s brilliant – can’t you just see that meeting?

“Chester- we need a half-page house ad for B17!”

“How about this one, Boss – our football fans love a good party photo.”

Yeesh.

No wonder the dotty local tabloid can’t get any ad love.
