History

The groundwork for the launch of the Fox network began in March 1985 with News Corporation's $250 million purchase of 50% of TCF Holdings, the parent company of the 20th Century Fox movie studio. Six months later, in September, Murdoch agreed to pay $325 million to acquire the rest of the studio. In May 1985, News Corp agreed to pay $1.55 billion to acquire independent television stations in six major U.S. media markets from John Kluge's company, Metromedia: KTTV in Los Angeles, WFLD in Chicago, KRLD in Dallas (which was renamed KDAF), KRIV in Houston, WNEW in New York (which was renamed WNYW) and WTTG in Washington, D.C. These first six stations, broadcasting to 22 percent of the nation's households, became known as the Fox Television Stations Group. Except for KDAF (which was sold to Tribune in 1995 and joined The WB after Fox affiliated with, then later bought VHF station KDFW), all of these stations are still part of Fox today. Clarke Ingram, who maintains a memorial website to the failed DuMont Television Network, has suggested that Fox is a revival of DuMont, since Metromedia was a successor to the DuMont corporation and the Metromedia TV stations formed the nucleus of the Fox network.[1] Indeed, WNYW (then known as WABD) and WTTG were the key stations in the DuMont network.

In October 1985, Murdoch announced his intentions to form an independent television system which would compete with the three major U.S. television networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC).

In January 1986, Murdoch said of his planned network, "We at Fox at the moment are deeply involved in working to put shape and form on original programs. These will be shows with no outer limits.

On May 6, 1986, Murdoch, along with newly-hired Fox CEO and chairman Barry Diller and comedian Joan Rivers, announced plans for "FBC" or the "Fox Broadcasting Company", with WNYW in New York as the flagship station, to be launched with a daily late-night talk show program, The Late Show Starring Joan Rivers. When Fox was launched on October 9, 1986, it was broadcast to 96 stations reaching more than 80 percent of the nation's households. Fox had lined up 90 former independent stations as affiliates in addition to its original six seed stations. By contrast, ABC, CBS and NBC each had between 210 and 215 affiliates reaching more than 97 percent of the nation's households.

From the beginning, Fox portrayed itself as a somewhat edgy, irreverent, youth-oriented network compared to its rivals. Its first prime time shows, which debuted on Sunday nights beginning April 5, 1987, were a comedy about a dysfunctional family (Married... with Children) and a variety series (The Tracey Ullman Show). The former would become a major hit for the network, airing for 11 seasons, while the latter would spawn the longest-running sitcom and animated series in U.S. history: The Simpsons, spun off in 1989.

In August 1988, America's Most Wanted was Fox's first show to break into the top 50 shows of the week according to the Nielsen ratings.

1990s

Despite a few successful shows, the network did not have a significant market share until the mid-1990s when News Corp. bought more TV station groups. The first was New World Communications, which had signed an affiliation deal with Fox in 1994 (see below). Later, in 2000, Fox bought several stations owned by Chris-Craft Industries and its subsidiaries BHC Communications and United Television (most of these were UPN affiliates, although one later converted to Fox). This made Fox one of the largest owners of television stations in the United States. Though Fox was growing rapidly as a network and had established itself as a presence, it was still not considered a major competitor to the big three broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC).

The early and mid-1990s saw the launch of several soap-opera dramas aimed at younger audiences that became quick hits: Beverly Hills 90210, Melrose Place, and Party of Five. September 1993 saw the heavy promotion and debut of a short-lived Western with science-fiction elements, The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr. However, it was the Friday night show that debuted immediately following it, The X-Files, which would find long-lasting success, and would be Fox's first series to crack Nielsen's year-end Top 25.

We even talked about, 'You get one market, we get another,' but we just couldn't work it out."[citation needed]


2000s

Fox arguably hit a few bumps in its programming during 1999 and the early 2000s. Many staple shows of the 1990s had ended or were on the decline. During this time, Fox put much of its efforts into producing reality fare with subjects often seen as extravagant, shocking, and/or distasteful. These included shows such as Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?, Temptation Island, and Married by America. The most successful of these shows was Joe Millionaire, whose season one finale was watched by over 40 million people, although its second season was a ratings disappointment.

After shedding most of these shows, Fox regained a ratings foothold with acclaimed dramas such as 24, The O.C., and House, and comedies such as The Bernie Mac Show and Malcolm in the Middle. By 2005, Fox's most popular show by far was the talent search American Idol, peaking at up to 30 million viewers on certain episodes and finishing the 2004–05 and 2005–06 seasons as the nation's highest-rated program.

Many Fox stations have a local morning newscast that airs on average three to four hours, including an extra two hours from 7 to 9 a.m. as a local alternative to nationwide morning programming. Fox, however, did air a nationally based morning show called Fox After Breakfast (which was formerly Breakfast Time on Fox's FX cable channel) between 1996 and 1998, which aired on all affiliates from 9 to 10 a.m. as opposed to the other major networks airing theirs from 7 to 9 a.m. Fox tried its hand again in 2001 at another morning show called Good Day Live, inspired by KTTV's Good Day L.A. — this time in syndication mode.

On January 22, 2007, Fox premiered The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet for its O&O stations, hosted by Mike Jerrick and Juliet Huddy of the Fox News Channel's DaySide program. The show is a lighter, more entertainment-oriented show, though that can change when there is big news. In February 2007, the show was syndicated to many ABC, NBC, and CBS affiliates where a MyNetworkTV or Fox station doesn't carry it.[6] FX (shorter for Fox Extended Networks) is the name of a number of related subscription TV channels owned by News Corporations Fox Entertainment Group. ...

Fox Sports

Main article: Fox Sports

Management, having seen the critical role that sports programming (soccer programming in particular) had played in the growth of the British satellite service BSkyB, believed that sports, and specifically professional football, would be the engine that would make Fox a major network the quickest. To this end, Fox bid aggressively for football from the start. In 1987, after ABC initially hedged on renewing its contract to carry Monday Night Football, Fox offered the NFL to pick up the contract for the same amount ABC had been paying, about $13 million per game at the time. However, the NFL, in part because Fox had not established itself as a major network, chose to renew its contract with ABC. For Fox Sports in Australia see Fox Sports (Australia). ...

Six years later, when the football contract was up for renewal again, Fox made what at the time was a bold and aggressive move to acquire the rights. Knowing that it would likely need to bid considerably more than the incumbent networks to acquire a piece of the package, Fox bid $1.58 billion for 4 years of rights to the NFC, considered the more desirable conference due to its presence in most of the largest U.S. markets, such as New York, Chicago and Philadelphia. To the surprise and shock of many, the NFL selected the Fox bid, in the process stripping CBS of football for the first time since 1955. Image File history File links Fox_sports. ...

Fox's acquisition of football was a watershed event not only for the network but for the NFL as well. Not only was it the event that placed Fox on a par with the "big three" broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, and NBC) but it also ushered in an era of growth for the NFL which continues on largely to this day. More importantly, Fox's acquisition of the NFL rights also quickly led toward Fox reaching a deal with New World Communications to change the affiliation of 10 of their stations to Fox.

The rights gave Fox many new viewers (and affiliates) and a platform for advertising its other shows.

In the past few years, when Fox aired new episodes of original programing at 7 p.m. on Sundays during football season, some of the markets, especially on the East Coast, are unable to see all or part of the new episode of the scheduled show due to NFL overrun. Futurama was especially victim to this network decision.

Station standardization

During the early 1990s, Fox began having stations branded as "Fox", then the channel number, with the call signs nearby. By the mid-to-late 1990s, the call signs were minimized to be just barely readable to FCC requirements, and the stations were simply known as "Fox", then channel number. (e.g. WNYW in New York City, WTTG in Washington, D.C., and WAGA in Atlanta, Georgia, are referred to as Fox 5.) This would be the start of the trend for other networks to do such naming schemes, especially at CBS, which uses the CBS Mandate on most of its owned and operated stations. WNYW, channel 5, is the flagship television station of the News Corporation-owned Fox Broadcasting Company, located in New York City. ... New York, New York and NYC redirect here. ... WTTG, FOX5 DC is an owned and operated TV station of the Fox Broadcasting Company. ... For other uses, see Washington, D.C. (disambiguation). ... WAGA-TV (Channel 5) is a television station in the city of Atlanta. ... Atlanta redirects here. ... This article is about the broadcast network. ... This does not cite any references or sources. ... In the television industry (especially in North America), an owned-and-operated station (frequently abbreviated as O&O) usually refers to a television station or radio station that is owned by the network with which it is associated. ...


However, while the traditional "Big Three" do not require their affiliates to have such naming schemes, Fox recommends that all stations use it.[citation needed] (However, there are some exceptions; see below.) All Fox affiliates must have a Fox-approved logo, and most refer to themselves on-air as, for example, "Fox 12."[citation needed] But some affiliates do not include the channel number in the name, and opt instead to use a city/regional descriptor in place of the channel number (e.g. Parkersburg, West Virginia, affiliate WTAP employs the moniker Fox Parkersburg rather than Fox 14). This is because many cable companies assign Fox networks to different channels, often a different channel than it is broadcast over the air, which is especially true for Fox affiliates with a channel over 30; Fox O&O WFLD in Chicago goes by Fox Chicago rather than their channel number of 32. WTAP-TV is the NBC television station in the Parkersburg, West Virginia-Marietta, Ohio market. ...

Daley (D) Area  - City  234. ...


Some affiliates, such as KTVU in Oakland-San Francisco mix between using Fox (channel number) to promote entertainment programming and another brand for news (like their Channel 2 News). A handful of others, like WSVN in the South Florida area and KHON in Honolulu, Hawaii, do not use the Fox brand at all. {{Infobox_Broadcast | call_letters = KTVU| city = | station_logo = | station_slogan = Complete Bay Area News Coverage| station_branding = KTVU Fox 2 (general)KTVU Channel 2 News HD (news)| analog = 2 (VHF)| digital = 56 (UHF)| other_chs = | affiliations = Fox| network = | founded = March 3, 1958| location = [[Oakland, California]| callsign_meaning = K TeleVision for YoU(though original owner claimed calls were...

KHON-TV is the Fox and The CW affiliate licensed to Honolulu, Hawaii. ... For the city and county of Honolulu, see City & County of Honolulu. ...


Starting in 2006, more standardization of the O&Os began to take place both on the air and online. All the O&Os began adopting an on-air look more closely aligned with the Fox News Channel. This includes changing the logos of almost all of these stations to have the same red, white and blue rotating box logo. The news music and graphics will eventually be the same on all the O&Os as well. [citation needed] However, WITI in Milwaukee chose to take on the new graphical coloring, but keep their horizontal FOX6 logo relatively similar to their previous version, due to the heavy integration of the former logo into the station's news set.


Taking a cue from News Corporation's recent acquisition of MySpace, many of the Fox O&Os launched new websites that look the same and have similar addresses. MyFoxDC.com, MyFoxNY.com, MyFoxLA.com, MyFoxHouston.com, MyFoxBoston.com, and MyFoxPhilly.com take visitors to the Washington, D.C., New York City, Los Angeles, Houston, Boston, and Philadelphia Fox O&Os, respectively. MySpace is a social networking website offering an interactive, user-submitted network of friends, personal profiles, blogs, groups, photos, music, and videos. ...


Fox adopted a 19-hour programming schedule in September 1993. It was expanded to 20 hours in 1996. It provides 15 hours of prime time programming to owned-and-operated and affiliated stations: 8-10 p.m. Monday to Friday (all times ET/PT), 8-10 p.m. and 11 p.m.-12:30 a.m on Saturday, and 7-10 p.m. on Sundays. Programming will also be provided Saturday mornings as part of a four-hour animation block under the banner 4Kids TV (which in some markets, especially where Fox Television Stations Group owns both the Fox and MyNetworkTV affiliates and the Fox affiliate was formerly owned by New World Communications, will air on the MyNetworkTV affiliate, while the Fox station airs local news) and the hour-long political news program Fox News Sunday (time slot may vary).

Children's programming

Main articles: 4Kids TV and Fox Kids

Fox began airing children's programming in 1990 when it launched the Fox Kids Network. Fox's children's programing featured many cartoons and some live-action series (particularly fantasy action programs) including Power Rangers (currently airing on various Disney-owned networks: ABC, Toon Disney, and Jetix channels around the world), Bobby's World, The Tick, Eerie, Indiana and Goosebumps. When The WB added the Kids' WB programming block in 1995, Tiny Toon Adventures, Animaniacs and later Batman: The Animated Series, (all of which originated either on Fox Kids or in syndication) moved to Kids' WB with new productions and original shows included.

Differences between Fox and the "Big Three" networks

Fox only airs two hours of network programming during the prime time hours (three hours on Sundays), compared to the three hours (four on Sundays) by the other major networks. This allows for many of its stations to air local news during the 10 p.m. time slot. Fox's original reason for the reduced number of prime time hours was to avoid fulfilling the FCC's requirements at the time to be considered a network [7] and to be free of resulting regulations, though FCC rules have been relaxed since then. Prime time is the block of programming on television during the middle of the evening. ...


Fox also does not air soap operas or any other network daytime programming (game shows, talk shows) despite being a major network. Because of this, affiliates have more time for lucrative syndicated programming. (Fox produces three syndicated daytime courtroom shows, Divorce Court, Judge Alex, and Cristina's Court). However, it has been reported that Fox may be moving into the arena in the near future, as they have ordered a daytime drama pilot called Born In The USA which has already been cast and has now started production.

How Fox succeeded where DuMont failed

Fox survived where DuMont and other previous attempts to start a fourth network failed in part because Fox programmed just under the number of hours to be legally considered a network by the FCC. This allowed Fox to make money in ways forbidden to the established networks, since during its first years it was considered to be merely a large group of stations. By comparison, DuMont was hampered by numerous regulatory roadblocks, most notably a ban on acquiring more stations since its minority owner Paramount Pictures owned two television stations. Combined with DuMont's three television stations, this put DuMont at the legal limit at the time. Also, Murdoch was more than willing to open his wallet to get and keep programming and talent. DuMont, in contrast, operated on a shoestring budget and was unable to keep the programs and stars it had. Most of the other startup networks followed this model as well. The DuMont Television Network was the worlds first commercial television network, beginning operation in the United States in 1946. ... FCC redirects here. ... Paramount Pictures Corporation is an American motion picture production and distribution company, based in Hollywood, California. ...


Fox is the only network whose owned-and-operated stations do not broadcast the entire Fox network schedule. All Fox O&Os acquired through the Fox/New World merger of 1997 have rejected Fox's children's program lineup, except KTVI in St. Louis, who only took Fox kids after religious station KNLC placed religious messages in place of commercials and broadcasts during the lineup which Fox didn't feel appropriate to be seen during children's programming. KTVI is the Fox owned and operated station in St. ... KNLC (channel 24, digital channel 14) is an independent television station in St. ...


The only Fox O&Os that air 4KidsTV are KTVI, all former Metromedia stations (except WFLD in Chicago), KRIV Houston, KSTU Salt Lake City, WTXF Philadelphia, WFXT Boston, WOFL Orlando and WOGX Gainesville/Ocala. 4KidsTV is not broadcast at all in three other markets (on the Fox station or on other stations): Austin, Memphis and Greensboro/Winston-Salem/High Point, making it the only children's program lineup that is not seen on all its intended network's affiliates (in all other markets, it is passed on to a MyNetworkTV affiliate or another station). The reason is Fox considers 4KidsTV as more so a syndicated package rather an actual part of the network lineup. WFLD is an owned-and-operated television station of the News Corporation-owned Fox Broadcasting Company, based in Chicago, Illinois. ... KRIV, channel 26, is an owned-and-operated television station of the News Corporation-owned Fox Broadcasting Company, based in Houston, Texas. ...

WOFL, FOX 35, is the Fox owned-and-operated television station serving the Orlando, Florida metropolitan area. ... WOGX is Fox networks owned-and-operated station serving the Gainesville, Florida television market, but also serves the neighboring portions of the Orlando and Jacksonville markets. ...


In order not to violate FCC rules which state that commercial stations must broadcast a minimum amount of children's programming a week, some stations that have rejected 4Kids TV run syndicated children's shows in its place. The lineup may have to be scaled back to three hours from the current four, aired later on in the morning and have it become an official part of the network schedule in order for all stations to air the lineup.


As opposed to the Big Three networks not being pleased with pre-emptions of their affiliates, Fox is the only network that does not have a problem with its stations and affiliates pre-empting network programming for various reasons. Aside from the children's programming pre-emptions since the late 1990s, many affiliates and stations pre-empted Fox shows to air local programming and in many cases, air local sports programming in its place (example: KTVU airs San Francisco Giants baseball). This dates back to when most local stations carried a general entertainment format. In most cases, Fox has been satisfied with the local stations regardless because of the relatively small amount of hours of network programming; this gives stations enough leverage to be trusted by the network to air the pre-empted programs late at night (after prime time newscasts), on the weekends, or on the counterpart local sister station through a duopoly. {{Infobox_Broadcast | call_letters = KTVU| city = | station_logo = | station_slogan = Complete Bay Area News Coverage| station_branding = KTVU Fox 2 (general)KTVU Channel 2 News HD (news)| analog = 2 (VHF)| digital = 56 (UHF)| other_chs = | affiliations = Fox| network = | founded = March 3, 1958| location = [[Oakland, California]| callsign_meaning = K TeleVision for YoU(though original owner claimed calls were...

Local News

At least half of Fox's 180 O&O and affiliated stations air local news in the 10-11 p.m. (9-10 p.m. CT/MT) timeslot. The newscast schedules on Fox stations vary more from station to station than ABC, CBS and NBC's affiliates. Some Fox stations have a newscast schedule similar to the Big Three's affiliates along with the added late evening newscast at 10 p.m. and a late afternoon newscast extended by a half-hour competing with the national evening newscasts, while others only have a 10 p.m. newscast.


Tampa's WTVT has the most local news of any Fox station with 51 hours per week, followed by Kansas City's WDAF-TV with 49 hours a week. Only a few Fox stations that air an 11 p.m. (or 10 p.m.) newscast along with a 10 p.m. (or 9 p.m.) newscast.

Stations that don't air local news air syndicated programming, usually off-network sitcoms in that timeslot, though some small market Fox affiliates outsource their newscasts to a Big Three station in the market (either situation may change in the future as more Fox stations start their own news divisions). Upstart Fox local news divisions do not run a full slate of newscasts (i.e., morning, midday, early and late evening newscasts plus news on weekend evenings and possibly weekend mornings), instead starting with a 10 p.m. newscast then gradually adding other newscasts. In broadcasting, syndication is the sale of the right to broadcast radio shows and television shows to multiple individual stations, without going through a broadcast network. ...

Criticism

Despite its popularity, Fox has also come under fire from many quarters, especially from fans of sci-fi/fantasy television. This displeasure stems from the perceived premature cancellation of some series, most notably Firefly, Sliders, Space: Above and Beyond, Dark Angel, Tru Calling, Fastlane, Wonderfalls, Pasadena, Reunion, Vanished, Standoff, and Drive. The cancellations of animated series Family Guy and Futurama were also criticized; in the former's case, the program was picked up again in 2005, while the latter series is being revived for 2008 on Comedy Central (who will also acquire the rerun rights from Adult Swim starting September 2007). Fox was also heavily criticized on its decision to cancel the critically acclaimed Arrested Development, which in 2004 gave the network its first comedy Emmy in many years. The show was in discussions to be picked up by Showtime or ABC, but producers decided not to pursue continuing the show. Image File history File links Emblem-important. ...

The network's justification for canceling these programs has generally been poor ratings. Fans of these programs respond by pointing toward critical praise and dedicated core fan followings, and blame the ratings on inconvenient time slots, poor advertising or illogical broadcasting. For example, the first episode of Firefly was the last episode aired, and other episodes were aired out of order. Also, the first two episodes of Drive were aired on a Sunday, and the third episode was aired the next day against Dancing With The Stars and Deal Or No Deal. FOX canceled Drive after only four episodes and the last two episodes made were shown online. Further inflaming fans, Fox has promised to air remaining episodes of shows and then failed to follow through on these promises.[20] For the video game based on the American series, see Dancing with the Stars (video game) Countries with their own version Dancing with the Stars is the name for a number of international television series based on the format of the British series Strictly Come Dancing. ...

In 1997, Fox-owned station WTVT in Tampa, Florida, fired two reporters, Jane Akre and Steve Wilson, who had refused instructions from superiors to revise a story on bovine growth hormone in ways that the reporters saw as being in conflict with the facts, and had threatened to report Fox to the FCC. The reporters sued under a Florida whistleblower law. A jury ruled that Fox had indeed ordered the reporters to distort the facts. Fox successfully appealed against judgment on the grounds that its First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and press protected it from such litigation, and that the FCC's policy against distortion of news was not a sufficiently significant rule for its breach to invoke the whistleblower law.[21][22] WTVT is a television station in Tampa, Florida. ...

In 2006, a number of Fox affiliates said that they would refuse to air O.J. Simpson's two-night interview special with Judith Regan, If I Did It, Here's How It Happened, scheduled for November 27 and 29, citing overwhelmingly negative viewer feedback. With other major affiliate groups reportedly threatening to pull their stations as well, Fox pulled the special a week before its airdate.

The Parents Television Council has criticized many popular FOX shows for being indecent, such as American Dad, Arrested Development, The Simpsons, Family Guy,[23] Hell's Kitchen,[24] Married...With Children,[25] Prison Break, and That '70s Show.[26] The Council sometimes has gone even as far as to file complaints with the Federal Communications Commission regarding indecent content within Fox programming, having done so for That '70s Show[27] and Married By America, having successfully been able to make the FCC fine the Fox network nearly $1 million for Married by America.[28] Also, Fox programming has been chosen by the PTC for its weekly "Worst TV Show of the Week" feature more often than programming from any other broadcast network; in fact, in the summer of 2004, PTC made Fox programming in that feature for several consecutive weeks at a time.[29] The Parents Television Council (PTC) is a US-based self-proclaimed nonpartisan[1], nonprofit organization founded by conservative activist L.

Sports

Since the network bought the rights to post-season baseball coverage, Fox has received criticism from non-baseball fans for not airing first-run original programming during October. (Baseball fans point out that there are plenty of other broadcast and cable networks available on every TV package that do show original scripted programming.) For the majority of the years that Fox has aired baseball, the network started the season for The Simpsons and other shows in November. In 2005, Fox started its season in September, took the month of October off to show the Major League Baseball playoffs, and resumed non-baseball programming in November. (Starting in 2007, FOX no longer has rights to Leauge Division Series games, and has only one League Championship Series per year.) Both approaches have drawn criticism. Fox Sports has also received criticism from sports fans of bias toward teams in certain conferences, especially during the Super Bowl and the World Series, usually the National Football Conference in football (due to the fact that Fox owns the rights to NFC games) and the American League, especially the New York Yankees and Boston Red Sox, in baseball. Fox rarely shows teams from outside the top-10 media markets during the regular season. Image File history File links Emblem-important. ... Simpsons redirects here. ...

Among baseball enthusiasts, Fox's coverage of Major League Baseball is often criticized. Many cite "whooshing" sound effects to accompany on-screen graphics, the use of Scooter, a talking baseball created with the intent of teaching the younger audience the difference between pitches, and even announcers Tim McCarver and Joe Buck as reasons for their disdain (even though McCarver used to be an analyst at ABC and CBS before he worked at Fox). Other purists are critical of Fox's rapid-fire switching of screen shots, complaining that it is not well-suited to the pace of baseball. Scooter is an animated character used by Fox Sports during Major League Baseball games. ...

Fox's National Hockey League coverage drew the ire of some hockey fans due to FoxTrax, a computer-generated "glowing" effect around the puck, which was intended to help casual fans keep up with the action. Ostensibly, it did not work, as the network chose not to match ESPN and ABC Sports' five-year, $600 million contract with the NHL in August 1998.

Fans of the series Malcolm in the Middle also criticized Fox, because during the football season, Fox would finish the scheduled game, but then cut to another game running over schedule, then do the postgame show, frequently eating into Malcolm's timeslot in the Eastern United States. This resulted in a ratings drop that would later lead to the series' cancellation. This is the same fate previously met by Futurama.

Fox is credited with a major graphics innovation in televised sports. Originally known as the Fox Box, a nearly omni-present graphic featuring the score and pertinent information, most notably the position of base-runners, count on the batter, score, inning and pitch speed in baseball; time remaining, score, down, possession and penalty flag indicators for football. Originally presented as a box in an upper corner of the screen (hence the term Fox Box), it is now generally seen as a strip imposed over the picture at the top of the screen. Other networks have adopted the scheme, which allows fans an instant and constant graphic insight into the progress and status of a game, as opposed to the prior practice which saw graphical references to scores and time remaining presented mainly at critical junctures or leading into commercial breaks. The scoring banner design is also used by other Fox owned sports operations, such as Fox Sports Net and the Big Ten Network. Fox Sports Net headquarters in Los Angeles. ...

Fox News chairman Roger Ailes is now also chairman of the Fox Television Stations division, and has been pushing for the network's OandO stations to have a more uniform image and presentation in their newscasts.
FOX's original reason for the reduced number of primetime hours was to avoid fulfilling the FCC's requirements at the time to be considered a network [5] and to be free of resulting regulations.
FOX successfully appealed against judgement on the grounds that their First Amendment rights to freedom of speech and press protected them from such litigation, and that the FCC's policy against distortion of news was not a sufficiently significant rule for its breach to invoke the whistleblower law ([6], [7]).
