    Yoshi is very disappointed that he was mistaken for a fungus.

    Hasn't WHEC already used This is The Place for a few years? Hubbard NBC affiliates thinking alike?

    Oh lord, heaven help if that is foisted on WNYT. I know Keynote is getting a little long in the tooth but that wouldn't be the solution at all.

    Seems like they can promote from within. Pair Deborah Weiner with Stan Stovall, and pair Andre Hepkins with Lisa Robinson.
    Stan & Deborah can do 5&11, while Andre & Lisa handle 6&10, and morning team of Jason & Mindy can handle noon. Or Stan & Deborah can handle 6/10/11, while Andre & Lisa handle noon/5.

    Sounds good. I just know Deborah is going to be there somewhere - she already was a known personality but lately in the past two or three years they’ve elevated her profile. For example the evening news promo spots include her and Andre in the group pose and they’ve promoted the 10PM newscast a lot more now. Before the 10PM would get a spot here or there but now it’s one or two spots (promoted as “the early advantage”) in every newscast plus a tease at the end of the 5:30 half hour (makes me wonder if it’s a strong competitor against WBFF).

    I also wonder how long Stan’s going to hang around as he’s atleast 65. I think that Andre Hepkins is the obvious heir apparent to Stan. They moved him into do the 5:30PM half hour and 10PM while reporting at 5,6&11 from the studio.

    I doubt they would do anything to the morning show as they have a great chemistry and still are young.

    Sorry in advance @Weeters I didn’t mean to get on the speculation train with all these fantasy rotas.

    Ive heard that WBAL will be splitting up Donna's shifts between Deborah and Mindy. Then move Megan into the Co-Anchor on mornings. All in the works still and could change.

    The music doesn't bug me as much as the bad CNN knockoff graphics.

    That sounds interesting. There have been times when both of the morning people have filled in in the evenings. Megan’s a good fit. I found it odd that she would leave a coanchor job at WMAR, to go do some PR, and come back and basically be an in studio reporter (but let’s be honest the PR gig was just a job during a non compete - she was there for seven months). Either Scripps wasn’t renewing her contract/paying enough or WBAL pays a lot more for a breaking news anchor vs a coanchor at WMAR.

    That would be W16DO, part of the old CAT network that was done in with spectrum cash-ins.
