His WGN initiation is complete.
It's hard to keep track, but I believe that this newest resizing of height and text is version 5 of the scoreboard. Not as tall as the original, which would still be the best, in terms of keep proportions consistent through the package, but it's infinitely better and easier to read than the shrinky dink model from two weeks ago. Now maybe they can leave it be for awhile.
Aren't we still in Sweeps? Surprised to see Joe Donlan and Tom Skilling off tonight. Maybe they caught an ugly May sickness like I did this weekend.
The books end on the 23rd.
Joe started at 6pm. Ben apparently did the 5pm because the 4pm news was a quick 7-minute broadcast that was shortened by the Cubs game. Lourdes, on the other hand, only stayed on the air for the quick 7-minute newscast and finished after that. Micah started at 5pm.
Looks like Tom Skilling is off the entire night.
So have they dropped the weather-in-the-first-five-minutes thing at 10? Watching for the first time in a while tonight and Tom@Ten didn’t come on until after the first commercial break. He even joked that they should call it Tom at 10:15 now.
I was never a fan of the “full-forecast-in-the-first-five-minutes” thing to begin with. If they’re planning on keeping it that way, good.
Good. This does sound like either a permanent change or a sweeps change. It seems better this way.
Mike Janssen is the successor to Jim Ramsey:
It's about time. After a few weeks of Ivory, McGill, Hamernik, and even Kolkmeyer, Janssen has been far and away the most frequent placeholder on weekend evenings. Good for him.
Wouldn't this be his regular shift for CLTV, or was he a fill-in until Jim retired?
I think he’s the right choice for the job.
As I recall, his on-air shift was weekday afternoons on CLTV. I can only assume he'll still retain that role 2-3 days a week while Tim McGill does the other days.
Revision #9037 to the sports graphics: the lower thirds have been changed to a more traditional format instead of trying to fit everything on a single line.
This is much better.
Even though its just a GIF, reminder... this is the Morning News.
Not the first time, either.
A historic night on WGN.
Wow. Never seen Paul outside of the morning news.
Random but - Larry Potash is one of my favorite anchormen on television in any market. Love that guy.
Haven’t watched WGN consistently but in the last few weeks I haven’t seen Skilling at all. Has he been gone for that long or do I just keep missing him?
I think he was in Monday and Tuesday this week.
