    Karyn Greer has been in the Atlanta market for 30 years. She started on then WGNX Channel 46 Indy as weekend anchor and when the weeknight anchor on the 10pm news left she took over. She been at 46 from Indy to the station becomes a CBS affiliate. In 1999, the station get a new owner. Dave Roberts(then ND) at WXIA brings her over to 11Alive where she was the reporter for Special Projects, and weekend anchor/reporter. WXIA would produce the 10pm news for WUPA, and it could of been a contract dispute, because it was ratings were not there to continue. She would move up to AM anchor and team up with Jill Becker doing Morning/Noon News. Also substituting in the evenings for Brenda Wood at times. They took her off the morning news and cancelled the noon news. She was given a contract, but think with TEGNA being TEGNA, she walked away and it was said her contract wasn't being renewed. She went back to the place she started and was doing reporting and fill-in anchoring. Now she anchoring the Noon news. While her comrades in the market have retired, passed, or moved on. She still only of a few left with a brand name in the market. She should be doing more at CBS46.

    Make note all (4) ladies competed with each at 6/11pm newscast during the 90s after the switch WAGA at 6pm only.
    WSB/2 -Monica Kaufman
    WAGA/5- Amanda Davis
    WXIA/11- Brenda Wood
    WGNX/46-Karyn Greer

    WDSU is jumping into the noon newscast frenzy starting September 3. Charles Divins and Gina Swanson will anchor while Kweilyn Murphy will do the weather.

    ^^^ Another Hearst station is going midday. WISN 12 is bringing back its midday broadcast.

    On September 10, WISN will launch an hourly-11am newscast. That would lead up to the new GMA's third hour program at 12pm.

    I remember years ago when WISN had a noon broadcast, when did they drop it?

    I would not be surprised if other Hearst stations affiliated with ABC do the same (KMBC, KETV, KHBS/KHOG and KOAT come to mind, while KOCO could simply just slide over the 9am newscast to 11am)

    I believe Hot Bench will move to WBCB or Nexstar27/33. Ellen will move to 3 and Dr.Pill will stay on at 4. I don't see Today's WFMJ dropping Live or Judge Judy.

    Maybe WKYC will get the hint too. IIRC, their lack of a 5pm show makes them the largest major network affiliate not to have one.
    I'm sure they could stand on their own now given the shifts of the marketplace. WKYC has been a contender for at least the last 15 years.

    Ellen Moves to 3PM on KXTV this fall. i think this might be another station to add 4PM News which KCRA and KOVR is already doing and this would mean that this would come on the same time as the show's flagship station KNBC.

    I've also heard... also heard... still RUMORS, that WFMJ was about to expire its contract with Ellen last year and was willing to do it then. But right before the TV season started, they renewed it. If they didn't, WKBN was about to take it.

    Connections give me powerful info sometimes.

    seems like he was the epitome of the new Tegna mindset...bring in a cheap thirtysomething no one's ever heard of but is good at Facebook and Twitter to replace a vet. What happened?
