Former WABC sports anchor Samantha Ryan is doing sports tonight. She was on at 5pm.
She was the weekend sports anchor in the early 2000s.
Weekend news on WABC starts at 5pm if no sports is playing; Sam Ryan used to be on the MLB Network.
Any sources ?
I watched the station's live stream last week. But here's the station's mention.
Not to mention.
So is Anthony Johnson done as the weekend Sports Reporter?
Not sure. But I've always thought he only did it on an interim basis.
Wouldn’t watching the 5pm news be source enough?
It would seem like Sam Ryan is freelancing, much like Andy Field. The posting is still up for the Weekend Sports Anchor and she's not on the website.

The station was launched 70 years ago today, when the station's call letters at the time was WJZ-TV, and it's call letters WABC-TV has been since 1953.
And today after 70 years, Channel 7 is still New York's #1 television station, and the #1 television station in America.
So happy 70th anniersary, WABC-TV!!!
Lauren Glassberg has been substitute anchoring far more often recently than she typically had in the past. Wonder if it's a contract renewal stipulation for her, or if they're short staffed with summer vacations.
On another note, Sade is going to slowly return to the 5:00 pm show next month per Bill Ritter.
Let's not forget a bigger anniversary if you ask me: November 17 is the 50th anniversary of the Eyewitness News format thanks to Mr. Al Primo.
I've been working my brains off on a spreadsheet of every non-freelance staff member in WABC history since 11-17-68. It's been an insane amount of work.
I've been unemployed for 15 months, one of the many things that's kept me busy.
Happy Belated Birthday WABC!
