    His start was delayed a week. He was reporting live from Miami for News4NY since he was still there. He did do other reports during the week prior to his anchoring over the weekend..

    Chuck filled in for Stefan at 4 today. Never saw that before tho it makes sense since he's no longer on at 11pm. Never saw Chuck anchor tiny or at 11am and probably never will see that happen.

    I'm guessing Jummy will be working everyday (since she's the current weekend anchor) due to Natalie's maternity leave

    To have 2 males co-anchoring a newscast today is quite rare IMO.

    Former WNBC anchor Sibila Vargas has turned up in South Carolina, as morning anchor for WSPA, the Nexstar owned CBS affiliate.

    She had left NYC to move with her husband to North Carolina.

    WNBC and WNJU has established a bureau in San Juan to continue stories of the storm ravaged territory and the slow recovery effort. A dedicated bi-lingual reporter has been hired who will report for both stations, and will also provide reports for other NBC/Telemundo O&Os across the country. Per TV NewsCheck. There was a report during the 5 pm hour on WNBC this evening.

    It’s definitely rare today but it has been done, remember Roger Grimsby and Bill Beutel? They were quite revered back in those old days from WABC.

    For good reason! I have said for the last few years I miss the old days of two anchors, a clock and JUST THE NEWS. No glitz, no editorializing, no "banter" to try and convince us these peopel are best buds off-camera.......

    Now, get off my lawn you damned kids!

    I know what you mean, it seems like today's anchors just cover what could be trending on social media

    I happen to be around the concourse that morning as I saw her wearing a blue jacket. I asked if she was Natalie has she replied that it was her. She was in a rush, she ended up telling me that she will return on the air January 2 or 3

    WNBC had an odd audio problem for the first half hour of Today In New York. All you could hear was the talent in studio.
    There was no music or audio of the reporters on location.The studio talent mics were always on.
    Also Darlene was not there at 4 AM then showed up with no introduction at 4:17 AM. At 4:25 AM the audio was normal.

    WNBC had more tech problems this morning. At 4:27 AM a commercial break started which included them playing the same News 4 promos twice.
    They came back for a few seconds with no graphics only for the station to go into another commercial break.
    At 4:36 AM they did weather and traffic with no on screen graphics.
    When they came back from commercials at 4:41 AM things were back to normal.
    I'm guessing this was an issue with the computer system that automates the newscast?

    Am I crazy or did WNBC update their anchor back drop? I never remember them having a giant screen. Didn't it used to be the "window" look? When did they change it?

    This was something out of Studio 3C setup which I believe they used several large LCD TV monitors. In 3K, the monitors consist of an LCD monitor wall from the start. Maybe they are going to follow what WCBS does with their set LCD monitor wall backdrop with OTS graphics?
