    During the Honeymooners marathon they've had each anchor from PIX11 news introduce themselves and saying to watch the PIX11 News.. Are they dying for viewers or are they just advertising themselves?

    In the promo with Sukanya Krishnan she calls her self the "main achor" of the PIX 11 Morning News. What does that make Frances Rivera?
    I thought they were co-anchors.

    Did WPIX hire Dyrol Joyner full time as sports reporter? He's been on every weekend during the NFL Season.

    A few days ago I WPIX aired a report where some of the video b-roll was totally out of focus.
    Then tonight during one of the reports, half of the camera shots are out of focus, the video level is way to high and the video is very grainy.
    Is WPIX now having some of their reporters shoot their own video on less than broadcast quality HD cameras?
    Here's a good example from tonight,

    It's quite possible. I believe the idea of reporters shooting their own video was mentioned a while back in a NY Daily News article concerning the demise and cost cutting measures being taken at WPIX.

    They aired a promo Friday night saying that Ray Kelly would release a statement about the investigation into Greg.. hat never aired.. Many ppl watched for it and took to facebook to complain.. Anyone know what's up? Or was just this an attempt to get ratings?

    You know this actually reminds me of The 10! Show on WCAU; THEY also have a small studio audience and it is also taped at its studios in Philly. Also I watched Ann episode of Maury when it visited WGN's studio in Chicago; that too had a small SD. So I think this may work.

    Agreed, but in WPIX's case, it won't work!

    Yeah but with Bill Carey there it's his way or the highway and I don't think he is gonna change anything.. He's an idiot.. I think a monkey could run a better station then him. The station is ruined now and it's sad.. The morning show is just Suki and Frances acting like 2 babbling idiots and the 10pm...well we all know about that.
