    Technically, yes, Good Day is part of Fox 29 News, but when Mike and Sheinelle have epic on-air moments - which is quite often - I figured I'd put Good Day in the title for clarity.

    I just heard it straight from Mike and Sheinelle:

    Starting tomorrow, FOX 29 will expand its morning news broadcast to 4AM and name it The FOX29 Morning News. It will air from 4-7 before Good Day, and will probably feature the same anchors and reporters as before. This isn't a test or special airing for the snowstorm coverage. This is permanent.

    So let me be first to say this: 4:25 was a stupid idea.

    Well, it looks like 2003 all over again; when they rebranded to Fox 29 it was "Fox 29 Morning News", then Good Day. Now the name has returned, and expanded.

    Was expecting the move from 4:25 to 4am, at least on one of the stations. Everyone's been going to 4am so frequently it had to happen soon.

    I'm glad that they're finally doing what I've been begging them to do for YEARS, though - separate the early edition of Good Day from the main show. They were doing that until mid-2003, when they decided to just call the whole thing "Good Day" to coincide with the change to the George Mallet/Kerri-Lee Halkett/Jennaphr Frederick team. Ironically, when they were segregated, Fox 29 Morning News and Good Day were pretty much identical in tone and content. When they called the whole thing Good Day, the 5:30-7am block was straight news, and 7am was more of a morning show feel.

    Probably also helps that they can now bill them as two separate programs for ratings purposes.

    Since when is Thomas Drayton anchoring on AJAM? I feel like it was mentioned, but...

    This morning, Bob Kelly was doing weather for Sue Serio, who was off. He also did the Weather Authority Update throughout the day.
    I feel like this has happened before at other stations (and I usuallu see Karen Rogers doing traffic on WPVI, but is regularly a meteorologist), but I don't remember traffic reporters doing weather where I am before.

    Caitlin Roth's "weekend" is probably Monday and Tuesday and that's who they usually call to fill in for Sue. Maybe they couldn't find anyone else to fill in.

    Caitlin Roth is going to the Fox station in Washington, DC. I think last Sunday was her last day on Fox 29. It's mentioned on her Twitter page.

    Just saw a commercial on fox 29 this morning saying that fox 29 news at 10 is beating Action News on PHL17 taking the number 1 slot

    Wasn't Action News on PHL17, #1 a few weeks ago and under what demographic? A25-54, A18-49 or Total Households? Because if it's A25-54 and/or A18-49, then that doesn't count to me.

    If you think about lead-ins, the fact the 10PM news on 29 has been around for decades, etc., that should be happening anyway--that spot is designed more to try and annoy 6 than anything.

    It'd be news if the 10PM on 17 was beating FOX regularly--and for a bit, there were some days where they were and it was competitive.

    It'd also be news if the 10PM news on FOX was the market's #1 late news or close to it, or if GDP were making inroads again in the morning. There hasn't been any newspaper coverage on how May sweeps were for Philly. I guess it's safe to assume the status quo?

    Im interested in seeing the numbers for GDP. #2 or #3 in the AM would be pretty impressive.

    OAN: Im glad viewers are taking a liking to Ian & Lucy at 10pm.

    It's like all of the stations are taking away things from 6abc. First it was nbc10 taking the official Eagles station title now fox29 is taking the pa lottery station title
