News 12 Traffic & Weather has these types of reports done by off-camera reporters.

Are there any TV stations who do not have traffic reporters appear on-camera? This does not included off-camera subsitutes for the regular traffic reporters who appear on-camera.

On Fox 5 in New York, Carla Quinn does the traffic on the 5 and 6pm newscasts, but is not seen on camera.

Also, Lynn Bradley from Metro Traffic gives morning traffic reports over the phone on WJAC-TV Channel 6 in Johnstown, PA.

The traffic reporters in Wilmington and Myrtle Beach do not appear on-camera, I think they're just people from NCDOT and SCDOT.

Since Kimberly King left KNSD, looks like NBC 7/39 made the anchors stop reporting traffic and teamed up with Clear Channel's KOGO-AM News Radio 600's Traffic Reporter Cal Walker.

KNSD has good partnership with KOGO since their morning business financial reports are done from the KOGO Studios with George Chamberlain.

Jimmy Watt (WYFF traffic reporter) does not appear on camera, if I recall correctly.

"CBS Sports presents...The Prudential College Football Report, sponsored by The Prudential...offering a full range of insurance and financial services. The Prudential: the Rock...it's strong, it's on the move, it's bigger than life."

 

(Don Robertson's original opening from The Prudential College Football Report in the 1985 college football season, which was Jim Nantz's first season with CBS)

In Charleston, none of the traffic reporters appear on camera, either, as they are all from sister local radio stations: Michael Hart from our country station for WCBD, and Sheree Bernardi, formerly on our soft rock station, on WCSC. Also, Rob Drummond, a local traffic reporter on radio, is on WCIV.

Prior to Jim Lokay's arrival at KDKA, their traffic reporter never appeared on camera either.

Rita Maloney, Kathy Bergren and Trisha Pittman to name a few. I believe they were KDKA radio employees at the time?
My condolences in regard to your lack of personality.

I definitely remember Kathy and Trisha, but for some reason Rita Maloney isn't ringing a bell.

This might be as far back as 1992, but I can't remember the exact timeline. I can still hear "Rita Maloney, Triple-A Traffic" in my head, though.

And I misspelled Kathy's name-- needs two Gs. Sorry, Jim. Don't disown me.

I didn't know that the traffic reporters in Charleston, SC were from radio stations there. That's a real interesting thing to know, and it is much appreciated that you pointed that out.:awesome:

That could be why I don't remember her. I was only 1 year old then. And as far as Kathy goes - I still recall hearing "In the KDKA PennDOT Information Center, I'm Kathy Berggren, for Tripple-A."
