    Just an fyi for all my channel 7 lovers -
    Ken has been getting his audition this week, and so far the chemistry is great, and management is noticing. I would have NEVER guessed Rosato would have been a good fit, but his personality and sense of humor are really shining through next to Lori.
    See, Ken knows how to live the life of a good, funny, decent guy without being sloppy... Steve should have taken a lesson from Ken.

    Ken absolutely deserves the spot. Very good chemistry with Lori and he has the same similar attitude that Steve Bartelstein had, so definitely a great choice if chosen.

    I think that right now the two main candidates are Jeff Rossen and Ken Rosato.

    I have not seen Phill on with Lori in a while.

    Phil was named co-anchor for "Eyewitness News This Morning" on the weekends and Joe Torres has the 6pm and 11pm weekend co-anchor slot.

    So the only emply slot is the co-anchor for 5am and 12pm weekdays.

    I think Ken has been great during this audition. His humor/laughter seems natural and he has good chemistry with Lori. I hope he gets the spot.

    Correct - there was a change in thinking.... Phil has better chemistry with Michelle then he does with Lori, and Joe is a little too "stiff" for mornings. It is down to Rossen and Rosato - and honestly, I'm pullin for Ken. He's a good guy, similar to Steve, but without the baggage. He and Lori have a blast together, and Ken isn't full of himself like the other candidate. He knows he's there as part of a team, not trying to outshine the rest and kiss Diane Sawyer's butt during the tease for GMA.

    I know both Rossen and Rosato and they are both great guys. Rossen has fun up there and has an edge but not over the top like bartelstein. i loved steve but he was just over the top. You are confusing your facts. lipof is the one full of himself who kissed diane sawyer's ass. lori and bill called him out on it on live tv one morning. rossen works great with lori. and ken seemed to have fun up there, too.

    I know the Lipof incident with Diane Sawyer very well... but trust me, Rossen has been smoochin Diane's cheeks as well. Rossen is capable, and a great newsman, no doubt, I just feel like Rosato is a better fit. The chemistry and laughter this week is very reminiscent of the days of Bartelstein.

    Lets all remember no one can be just as good as Steve. He would make me laugh so much. I really miss him. Yes, Rossen and Rosato are great candidates to take Steve's spot, but I cannot see it being as good unless they bring Steve back.

    They need to get someone soon. It has been way way to long.

    I think that Ken's great and hope he gets the AM co-anchor job, but at least he should be on contract after his stellar performance.
