    What about the the new photo of the 4p team, now added with Patrick to the anchor team photo?

    So, I noticed that yesterday and today, Patrick is anchoring at 4 and 6pm despite Dick being on the 5pm. Not sure if Patrick is going to be off this weekend, or if he's going to work a 9-day week.

    I'm curious why they're doing this. I'm guessing either Dick has a prior commitment that prevents him from working the 4 and 6pm, or management is trying to get Patrick in the seat on weekdays as much as possible.

    The later seems the most likely situation.

    I don't think it's all week. If I understood it correctly, Patrick's now the 4pm anchor, Dick is back to weekends, and the two of them juggle the 5 and 6 until Rob takes on one or both.

    Not a thing. Patrick doesn't have a bio online, and I'm guessing he hasn't sat for a head shot, yet.
