    I haven't watched too many WMAQ newscasts lately since I no longer work at a place that has it on their TV 24/7, but last week, I noticed that instead of live camera views on their video wall, they've been using stock photos of the skyline. Is this standard now, and how long has it been going on?

    Month or two? Not too long.

    Aww, that's a shame. I liked seeing the rain out snow when it actually rained or snowed.

    They do go to the live camera ahead of some weather reports, much like ABC 7, but that's not much consolation.

    That's sad to hear! Was Warner lead anchor before or after Ron Magers NBC 5 career?

    After Ron left for WLS. Which was part of the reason Mark Suppelsa left for WFLD.

    I was (and still) remain an ABC7 and WGN guy, but I remember watching Warner and Allison a few times. I had no idea he was there that long.

    May he continue to report in Heaven.

    And Warner Saunders is trending nationally on Twitter as we speak.
