  1. Idk why, but I always felt Mele was out of place at Channel 6. It didn't feel, to me, like there was a natural fit. I think Walter does fine by himself. Is there a reason why they're trying to add an co-anchor with him?
  2. WPVI, 6ABC in Philly has updated their weather graphics to the new look.
  3. Keith makes it a point in all his social media replies that he is just filling in to help the team out. Although anything can change, but I would probably say Johnny is the one to work evenings of the 2, if they keep him there.
  4. From what I've seen so far this week, the reporters are transitioning to the CBS News Philadelphia tag. So looks like the end of an era may be on the horizon.
  5. This evening's newscasts featured the anchors anchoring from the NEXT Weather desk. I wonder what updates they're making to the main anchor area.
  6. 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.)
  7. 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?
  8. Violeta Yas is on 'CAU at 4p today. It was mentioned that she was "from our sister station in New York".
  9. 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?
  10. His Twitter bio has him freelancing for NBC San Diego & Philly, based out of Dallas-Fort Worth.
  11. Gray Hall is Sharrie's new 10pm Co-anchor. Gray Hall - Facebook Post
  12. Just for understanding purposes, why has the Minn/St. Paul market avoided using these kind of brandings?
  13. 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.
  14. That is an extremely fast pace. I don't know if it's sustainable. You're gonna wear out everyone, including your viewers.
  15. 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.
  16. 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?
  17. 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 )
  18. NBC 10 Offering Buyouts Looks like there may possibly be more people leaving 10.
  19. 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.
  20. 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?
  21. A person on Facebook posted this answer: "Erin & Lisa were on Preston & Steve yesterday. They asked why NBC 10 was doing a report on a 6 ABC person. NBC 10 has been doing many reports about drug addiction highlighting how everyone is effected by it. So Erin read Lisa's book and felt it was bigger and people needed to hear about it. Listen to P&S podcast from 11/14."
  22. NBC 10 adds to the news & weather team. [MEDIA=twitter]907629647709523968[/MEDIA]
  23. I really like Tammie's demeanor, style, and balance. Tammie definitely brings a calm nature, not rushed like some of the other ones on the team. Not sure if it's just me, but I've noticed some of 10's Mets go overboard on numbers instead of delivering what's going on and they run out of time because of it. As far as Chief, I can definitely see that once Hurricane retires, whenever that will be, and I think it'd be a good move.
  24. I just noticed that the 6pm team was at the 'PHL 17 desk and as they were going off air, you saw that off to the left where their desk would be. Are they getting a new set or maybe some upgrades?
  25. I was home tonight for the first time in a while and decided to catch Fox 29 News at 10. One thing though call me off guard was them playing different songs as they we're going to commercial breaks. Just just curious to know how long they have been doing this and what do you guys think of this idea? I know 29 tends to be different.
