    I can buy the #1 at 10p counterpoint--I would certainly hope they are given they're more established there and it's the signature newscast--but as I understand it is close between them and 17 some, if not most days.

    I could also buy the beating KYW at 11 argument because, unfortunately, 3's product is just so dire now (Ukee deserves way better IMO--as much as I love an attempt at WCCO East you just can't do that in Philly.)

    If they're #3 at 5, that would actually be a decline--I can remember when that news clocked in second place, backed by Judy, which still does quite well at 4PM.

    They are not shutting it down. Their 10pm news is still quite well, even if sometimes they're being beaten by WPVI's news on WPHL.

    They are not on the list because they already did a news expansion a couple years ago. The only slot they could add is middays, but they used to have a midday newscast, but they canceled it.

    Does anyone think its time for replace the current anchors for new ones for its evening newscasts and perhaps Good Day Philadelphia to improve the station's image to viewers ?

    Maybe the evening...They would have to hire from outside. But Good Day is typically #1\#2 typically so they will NEVER change that dynamic

    Lucy Noland and Iain Page needs to go. They are both 100 percent bad at anchoring the news on FOX 29.

    I noticed that Lucy Noland wasn't anchoring during the Bill Cosby verdict coverage today. She wasn't on last night either . I really wonder has the station let Lucy go or is she taking time off?

    Does anyone think that FOX 29 will likely make changes to its evening newscasts and hire new anchors and replace the current ones and do you think that more changes are needed to fix their news operation?
