THEME:   initial letters of phrases are TV stations
   
GOOD ONES:    
Weekly magazine where {theme}   TV-GUIDE   
Wedding proposal?   TOAST   
Private insignia   ONE-STRIPE [I thought a seal of some type, not military]

Roll on the ballfield   SOD [is it still a roll once laid?]   
   
Wet expanse {twice}   OCEAN & SEA [when I saw OCEAN was the answer for "wet expanse" I thought it was a weak clue; seeing it a second time reinforced its mundanity]      
   
Psychic's verb   READ [the verb is common to every subject in the universe]   
   
A fourth of doce   TRES [doce is not used in our language, ever --- if it is imperative that a foreign word be used, clue it so that the English reader has a chance as in "Dos follower" or "France's ___ bien."
