Too bad WNBC couldn't find a way to bring back John Marshall...

Agree on Marshall.

However I do have to say don't know why Davis is being shown the door. I liked her.

It's interesting that WNBC heavily advertised their current team of Huff, Cimino, Miranda and Davis throughout the winter and spring an has now decided to drop her. Davis may have the looks, but her on air presentation and interaction with anchors is subpar. Villanueva is a bit better, but sometimes it seems that he is forcing his smiles. It's apparently hard to find a good meteorologists with the whole package for the weekends. I guess Davis would move to WNYW.

Raphael Miranda posted on FB he'd be working all shifts this weekend; does that mean DD is gone?

I wonder why Domenica is leaving. I was starting to like her and I wish the best for her.
Was her contract not renewed or did she leave on her own terms?

She was on again last night. Was her contract renegotiated/did the deal fall through with Steve Villenueva?

Villanueva officially left PIX. Maybe Domenica agreed to freelance in the interim.

Domenica Davis was on this evening with Gus Rosendale, who subbed for both David and Erika.

If I had to guess, VIllanueva probably had a non-compete clause in his former WPIX contract, and he will remain off-air until it is fulfilled.

Domenica was on this morning and Steve did his first WNBC forecast for the 12pm newscast.
Did they decide to add Steve and keep Domenica?

Maybe Steve overslept on his first WNBC assignment?

Probably not.. The person doing weather on the morning show never does the noon show.. They always bring in someone else for the noon.. I guess the am people probably leave before the noon show.. Maybe they're going to keep both of them and make a permanent noon team with Steve or Domenica.

Is everyone sure Raphel Miranda isn't the one who left and the article we saw had wrong information? Cause Steve was on yesterday morning (idk about today) and Domenica was on tonight..
