  1. Basically it’s a producer who works on stories happening now for same day and/or next day air. When a story is “crashing” it’s usually breaking/developing news or any unplanned assignment that will need to be packaged quickly for an upcoming broadcast.
  2. agreed. When I first saw the headlines, I did think “oh boy.. this is bad...”. Then, I watched the actual footage. Amy Robach is pissed (rightfully so) because she had a good chunk of the story years ago, but it wasn’t enough to make air before all the details began emerging. That happens every day. It’s the editorial process. Quite frankly, it should be happening more often rather than the constant rush to be first, only telling half the story with some sources and completely missing the boat in giving viewers and readers the full picture.
  3. Darla Miles and photographer assaulted by Battery Park ticket scammer while doing a report investigating the scammers. https://nypost.com/2019/10/08/battery-park-ticket-seller-arrested-for-assaulting-reporters/
  4. Former WABC reporter Dray Clark (now with WCAU/NBC10 Philadelphia) has been arrested on charges of assault, terroristic threats and harassment. It’s his second arrest within the last week and both incidents involve the same woman. Clark is off the air indefinitely, according to WCAU.
  5. which one would you be referring to?
  6. Looks like the ABC O&Os are now partnering on reports. WABC will air a “7 On Your Side Investigates” report on the return of measles during Monday’s 5pm broadcast. It’s billed as “An ABC Owned Television Stations Data Investigation”.
  7. Diana’s bio was removed from the website today. I guess it’s officially official =( https://abc7ny.com/about/newsteam/
  8. Absolutely wonderful sendoff. Hit all the right notes — including Diana’s farewell message and the standing ovation in the studio filled with her family, colleagues and viewers. I don’t think I’ve ever seen WABC send off someone in that fashion but I’m glad they did it for Diana. She truly deserved it. She is and always will be Eyewitness News.
  9. The 5pm talent open is back in what is certainly a nod to Diana Williams. The last time it aired was early July when she returned from a month long vacation to begin these final 10 weeks.
  10. It’s a nice addition but could they consider adding some more contrast and not painting or lighting every thing in a shade of blue? I love the EWN blue theme, but maybe some wood paneling, a faux bookshelf.. something ?
  11. The current EWN music is officially 20 years old and still sounds as good as new! Here is what WABC-TV looked like back in late August / early September of 1999 when it switched over to the current cuts of Gari’s “Eyewitness News” and, briefly, became “ABC7 Eyewitness News”. 5pm News short open, talent open, bumper: https://youtu.be/VMjL2FswYeU “Coming Up” promo (from a few months later in May 2000): https://youtu.be/muESKwhgafk
  12. The WABC opens are fine. I think the L3s and rest of the graphics could use a little work. Overall, though, a better package for WABC would be the KTRK look: https://youtu.be/djtzkno-vcU The current west coast look doesn’t really fit NYC or WABC. Also, I think the previous KABC look was better and less generic: https://youtu.be/FFheiawlf3s
  13. The standup area is pushed back a little further; it’s not really adjacent to the main desk but seems like that from some camera angles. The large EWN/7 logo you see in the photo you posted actually was a duratrans at the time that photo was taken, not an actual screen. It just rotated between the EWN logo and Accuweather backdrop. That duratrans area was recently updated to an actual flat screen.
