There was a problem with the lights in the main studio.. reason why they were in the newsroom
Thanks. It's not bad when they do use the newsroom except that they always have issues with the audio being over modulated.
Shirleen Allicot returned from maternity leave today since the birth of her baby in March.
Did she have a boy or girl?
if i am not mistaken a girl
A girl Shayla Joelle.
Marcus Solis' piece on the heat today talking about the 1977 blackout on July 13-14. Larry Kane was shown broadcasting that day (one of the 70s pieces on YouTube.)
For those who want the 1977 version:
What a hoot!
In the open we see Spencer "Adjusting" his mic...shuffles papers...and looks to the anchor to acknowledge that he is ready...
One little thing..
Ya see Spencer had been sitting down for the last 5 minutes or more...primping...getting pretty...so there was no rush. His scripts were already in the prompter...
And that mic???
Well an "honest to God NABET union audio dude" had that mic affixed to Spencer minutes ago...the mic check was done, and there is no need to "adjust" that mic. In fact Spencer isn't really even supposed to touch that mic unless unless it burst into flames and eats him. Those are the union rules.
Those late 60's early 1970's EWN opens were great..totally scripted opens.
For a while the anchors used to make it look like they were just so hurried that they could barely make it to the set in time for the open, but that became risky as the talent was already hardwired to the set with dual lav mics and some primitive IFB's
So they could only "run" so far.
It was truly fun and fascinating to watch this broadcast. I have to confess that there were moments when I thought, "why is the quality of this newscast so much better than what we get NOW with better technology?"
Those guys had fun doing it. It wasn't hokey...it was "flash"...
Most of all...it was a good honest newscast.
Per a Facebook post, Danielle Leigh who most recently was at King 5 in Seattle is joining ABC 7 as an investigative reporter for "7 on your side" she starts in August.
Damn, that's a big jump for Leigh. Kudos.
But how many investigative reporters do they need? Is Jim or Nina leaving or being reassigned?
That's only 13 or 14 markets... not a big jump...
WABC has had the job listing up for a while. I wonder if they just want a 3rd person.
Likely they wanted to return to having two investigative reporters and one dedicated consumer reporter; the same set up they had for years before Sarah Wallace left.
Found it interesting that Dave Evans was on this morning covering a sexual assault story. I know a lot of vacations are out but is this,one of the few times he was on covering a non political story for the morning show?
It's not unheard of that he does non-political stories. Doesn't do many, but there wasn't much political news this morning until Spicer resigned.
WABC has a new medical contributor from ABC News.
Greg Hurst, former WABC anchor who left KHOU in March, has reappeared at WREG, the Tribune station in Memphis.
