    How has Steve managed to survive all of these cuts? The man has been there forever!
    No real loss in Maria but Lisa was always a pleasure to watch.

    Ever since Lisa ran into the monitor with that scooter, she was done for at FOX11.

    I'll miss Lisa Breck (what they sometimes referred to as on GDLA and the Morning News)...I think she'll end up on 5 (maybe the most likely place IMO), but it wouldn't surprise me if 2/9, 4, or 7 come calling.

    Maria Sansone, on the other hand, never really had good chemistry with Steve Edwards, and after her pregnancy she was relegated to a lesser role.

    I'm bumping this thread to avoid making a new thread. Its not a new shake up. But an interesting fill-in this morning.

    KRIV Fox 26's morning anchor Rita Garcia is anchoring Good Day LA.

    Now they can't find anyone else "in-house" to fill-in?

    If they could have her fill-in via Skype they would.

    I noticed they moved Dan Springer down to Las Vegas to replace Claudia...who was filling in for all the L.A. folks that were shuffled elsewhere over the last few months.

    Plus on top of that...
    There are probably a boatload of regulars out working on sweeps pieces for Nov.

    FOX/FNC does NOT have a deep bench to call up. People need breaks and vacations...and most of those vacations were shot to hell covering hurricanes and finally Las Vegas.

    EDIT: ...and Ca Fires...TBC

    So Follow-Up. Rita is now the new permanent co-anchor of GDLA.

    This News Director is ruining the station. Well, it was already ruined, she is making it worse. Anyone know if Jose Rios is looking to come back!!!??? (sarcasm)

    Should mention that Elex will only anchor from 4:30-5 then report the rest of the morning. Tony McEwing will continue to anchor from 5-7 and at 10 am.

    Isn't Tony anchoring 7-9, too? Also, anytime I've peeked in, lately, Bob DeCastro has been anchoring at 10 and noon. So, what is the true schedule?

    This is before Elex...

    4:30-7am - Araksya & Tony
    7-10am - Megan & Rita
    10-10:30am - Marla & Tony
    12-1pm - Marla & Bob

    I don't get why they're giving Elex only the 4:30 half hour, unless Tony is on his way out soon.......
