Brewers' Segura and Maldonado launch show on Telemundo

Milwaukee Brewers shortstop Jean Segura and catcher Martin Maldonado are working together for a new show that will run on Telemundo Wisconsin stations in Milwaukee, Madison and Green Bay.

"Jean Segura, who is from the Dominican Republic, and Martin Maldonado, from Puerto Rico, love the opportunity of giving back to the Latin community here in Milwaukee by sharing some of their personal thoughts, private moments and, most importantly, by offering  advice to the younger generation in which they provide through the television show ‘Devolviendo Con Amor,’" said Debra Lopez.

"Devolviendo Con Amor,"  which means "Giving Back, with Love," is a show that is, "intended to get up close and personal with professional athletes who wish to leave a legacy by giving back to their community or to a cause that is close to their heart," according to the release.

The program, done with the support of Debra Lopez Public Relations, Legends of The Field, HAWS The Humane Animal Welfare Society, El Rey’s Super Market and Ewald Automotive Group, will air on Saturday at 10 a.m. The show will repeat on WYTU-TV at the same time on Saturdays through to Sept. 21.

Lopez is also shopping the show to other TV and cable outlets in the market.

"Best of all, the show will be partnering with many of these professional athletes to raise funds for non-profit youth programs," Lopez said.

WITI-TV Fox 6 ready to launch "Studio A"

Who is Brian Kramp?

It is a good question to test out a MOS package for a rookie reporter. If you are in the TV business, then you know MOS stands for "Man On Street" and it is what Kramp will be doing for WITI-TV Fox 6 and its new program "Studio A" that will launch on Sept. 9.

Kramp, the former morning show host on WLUM-FM 102.1, and podcaster with OnMilwaukee, will be the entertainment reporter assigned to the hour-long show that will air at 4 p.m. weekdays.

Anchors Katrina Cravy and Ted Perry will host the show from the station. You can read more about the program here.

SIDE NOTE: A friend and colleague of mine from broadcasting shared a story he remembers from his film instructor on where M.O.S. came from and what it means in production circles.

Apparently, the term means to shoot video without sound. The story goes to old Hollywood where a German director ordered the shoot to be made "mit out sound." The camera assistant responded to the direction by writing "M.O.S." down on a slate.

GSN now in WTMJ-TV's slot on Time Warner Cable

Now three weeks into the block-out of Journal Broadcast Group stations on Time Warner Cable, both sides have been active in lobbing shots at each other in the past 24 hours.

Late on Wednesday, Journal sent a letter to the Wisconsin Department of Justice seeking action against Time Warner to assist customers seeking credit for not getting WTMJ-TV Ch. 4 in Milwaukee and WGBA-TV Ch. 26 and WACY-TV CH. 32 in Green Bay.

You can read about the letter and Time Warner’s response here.

Early this morning, Time Warner Cable filled the channel slots on the guide with GSN, the Game Show Network, and is offering customers a free preview of Starz Kids & Family.

"Time Warner Cable regularly makes changes to our channel lineup, but because of the continuing Journal Broadcasting dispute, we want to be sure consumers are aware of GSN’s new position on our channel lineup," said Jack Herbert, regional VP of operations for Time Warner Cable in the Midwest.

Starz Kids & Family in Milwaukee is on channels 994 and 999, and channels 10, 13 and 994 in Green Bay.

"We thank our customers for their patience and support as we continue to negotiate on their behalf for a reasonable agreement with Journal Broadcasting," Herbert said. "We hope that customers enjoy Starz Kids & Family on their channel lineup, as we work to end Journal’s prolonged broadcaster blackout."

Upon follow through on the channel switch, Steve Wexler, vice president of the Journal Broadcast Group, played on the games being played with his reaction.

"Time Warner Cable's decision to put the Game Show Network on our cable channels is an ironic choice, considering the games Time Warner seems to be playing on their customers," he said.

"In an apparent response to a class-action lawsuit that would require them to credit consumers for lost programming, Time Warner instead scrambled to fill the slot with a network they already offer instead of giving customers the credit they deserve.

"However, while customers are bein…
