    I am watching FOX29 news at 10pm right now and they are now calling Scott Williams "FOX29 Meteorologist" instead of "Chief Meteorologist"

    Judging by that little piece of new set revealed (and the duckface on the guy on the left), we may be in for a great time of bewilderment ahead.

    Oooh! I'm excited!!

    It looks like the new set will debut on August 1st because I saw a commercial on FOX29 promoting their new 11pm show that starts on August 1st and it showed a time lapse video of the new set being built.

    Scott Williams is now doing weekend mornings on Good Day Weekend and now does the 6pm show from Wednesday-Friday. Dave Warren now does weather on Saturday nights.

    I just saw another new promo for the new 11pm show that starts tomorrow night. The new set also debuts then and there will be a lot of news in the first 5 minutes that includes the 7 day forecast so viewers don't have to wait until the end of the show for it.

    Do you think that the new FOX29 News at 11pm will get good ratings? I watched it and it is fast paced which makes the broadcast interesting. I think that it will be in 3rd place or a close second because the 10pm ratings are very strong.

    Morning anchor Chris Murphy is moving to San Diego. His last day on Fox 29 is Sept 30. Adweek had mentioned it last week and Chris confirmed on his Twitter account today.

    Wow. In a week of anchors returning to previous stations (one-two), this is just mind-boggling.

    I liked Drayton a lot when he was evening anchor during the turn of the decade, so he'll fit very well with the station again during early mornings.

    Back to where she was before prior to early 2015, after Kerry Barrett left.
