Primary Anchor

Primary Anchor (5/8)



  1. WQAD’s Jim Mertens is going to KCRG as the new Evening Anchor. He replaces Chris Earl, who went to WFTX. Mertens starts May 24th. https://www.kcrg.com/2022/05/10/quad-cities-jim-mertens-join-kcrg-tv9-evening-news-team/
  2. KWWL, which is now owned by Allen Media, still have the same set and graphics.
  3. KCRG is no longer Eastern Iowa’s “24 Hour News Source”. They are now “Your Trusted Local News Source”, which they have used going to break the last few weeks. There are also new graphics which I haven’t seen on other Gray stations yet. The Weather graphics and on air bug are the same, but wouldn’t be surprised if they change soon.
  4. Two Departures at KCRG, both for different reasons. Morning Anchor Jay Greene has been fired: https://www.kcrg.com/app/2022/02/27/kcrg-statement-former-anchor/?outputType=apps And earlier this month, Primary Anchor Chris Earl left to take a job in Florida.
  5. ION finally has something original in forever!
  6. When WBZ went from NBC to CBS, Danny Dark was still the VO for their news opens. Must have been a contractual thing despite the affiliate change.
  7. I had the honor of going to the same church as Donna when I lived near Baton Rouge for a brief time, couldn’t be nicer. RIP to a great anchor, and a great person.
  8. I agree it’s about time that Maury is throwing in the towel.
  9. How is WTSP compared to KDFW lol!
  10. I honestly didn’t know that former KHOU vet Marlene McClinton worked at WMAQ before Houston.
  11. So that’s what happened to him. Thanks for the news.
