Primary Anchor (5/8)



  1. I just want to note how grateful I am that the entire 10 crew that was down on the Ben Franklin Parkway, broadcasting the Wawa Welcome America concert and fireworks show, are all safe. Alot of the team was very close to where those gunshots were fired. Also the 2 officers that were hit were treated and released, and the 1, miraculously, had the bullet stop in his hat! Alot of the team had to shelter under the desk, stages, wherever they could find a safe place, then, in some cases, run for their own safety. I'm sure it's sometimes scary to have to cover these kind of potential tragic events, but when you're now part in it, I can't even imagine. So glad everyone involved is safe. (From the operational standpoint, I don't have any video of the transition from them showing the fireworks to the breaking news.)
  2. This week, it's NBC D.C.'s Somara Theodore filling on on the evening newscasts. Does anyone think these are possible tryouts? How soon could we see the open positions filled?
  3. Violeta Yas is on 'CAU at 4p today. It was mentioned that she was "from our sister station in New York".
  4. Meteorologist Krystal Klei is leaving the station for her hometown of Phoenix, AZ. Krystal Klei headed for Phoenix, via her IG With the recent retirement of Hurricane, and the maternity leave of Brittany Shipp, this will leave only Bill Henley & Steve Sosna as the only actual F.A.W. team members for the time being. Maybe more help from remote wether people (such as Brian James from Dallas) and Telemundo 62 temporarily?
  5. His Twitter bio has him freelancing for NBC San Diego & Philly, based out of Dallas-Fort Worth.
  6. Gray Hall is Sharrie's new 10pm Co-anchor. Gray Hall - Facebook Post
  7. Just for understanding purposes, why has the Minn/St. Paul market avoided using these kind of brandings?
  8. Just an FYI, the segment is called "Tell Us Your Story" and it normally lasts for the majority of the hour. Glen & Ray do a phenomenal job with these long-formed, detailed interviews. So DEFINITELY a must listen.
  9. That is an extremely fast pace. I don't know if it's sustainable. You're gonna wear out everyone, including your viewers.
  10. Today is Stephania Jimenez's last day. They mentioned it the last 2 minutes of the weekend morning show. It wasn't said what her endeavors were going forward.
  11. Looking at the 10pm show tonight, is it me, or does it look like the 2 anchors are back at regular spacing and not the 6ft spacing?
  12. Harry Hairston is retiring. Great guy who did alot of tough assignments well. Harry Hairston Retirement Send-off (I wonder if this was apart of the NBC cutbacks )
  13. NBC 10 Offering Buyouts Looks like there may possibly be more people leaving 10.
  14. Looks like Fox 29 has debuted new graphics and color scheme. Looked like 2 slightly differing ones for Good Day vs the regular news shows.
  15. I don't know. Tammie was good at her job, but I don't think she clicked with viewers here. "You're going to need the rain slickers today...", that's just one example. The other thing was getting the chief title from "Hurricane". I know that was a management decision, but I think that didn't sit well with viewers as well. These are just my opinions, I would love to hear yours. Also, guesses on the next 4,6, &11 meteorologist?
