For a couple of weeks, Darlene Rodriguez filled in on the evening news for Sue Simmons and Erika Tarantal filled in on Today in New York. I have to say...even though I love watching Sue Simmons and her and Chuck are great, I really enjoyed watching Darlene on the evening news and Erika on the morning news. Darlene seemed pretty comfortable with Chuck and Erika and Michael Gargiulo have A LOT of chemistry with each other. I am not hoping that Sue retires any time soon since I think she is one of the best anchors in NY, but when she does, Darlene would be a great choice as her successor. Darlene also seems pretty comfortable with David Ushery, and he has long been considered a successor to Chuck when he retires. There was also an article in the Daily News last week about how there has been buzz around 30 Rock about Darlene being a rising star at the network and how she is being considered as a possible replacement when Sue retires. There was also an article in the paper last month about Erika Tarantal and how network executives have bigger and better plans for her.

I was browsing through Youtube the other day and I typed WNBC and I was surprised when I saw a clip about bikes, and at the beginning of the clip, there was Chuck and Sue at 5 PM... Plus, I've seen Darlene sub for Sue in the 11 PM newscast, and I agree that she can be Sue's successor. But I wonder who's gonna retire first though, Chuck?, Sue?, or are they both gonna retire at the same time?
