  1. Former WCBS reporter and QVC host Katie McGee will be subbing for Heather on the traffic reports. She currently works for Total Traffic who provides the WABC traffic data.
  2. Heather has been doing traffic reports at home due a possible covid exposure.
  3. Checking tonight, there was 7 min of local news at the start of CBS News New York Now from Kristine Johnson in studio. Alice Gainer did a report and it was dark outside, she said she was live, though there was no live bug on screen. After that they went to CBS News anchor Tom Hanson. At 9:20pm they did have a local weather forecast. Another local news update ran again around 9:34pm.
  4. Yes, KTXA produced the newscast which was shown on WLNY and other sister CBS stations. This means there is no CBS2 produced newscast on WLNY at 9pm.
  5. Only caught the end of CBS News New York Now on WLNY, it appears from the credits, the newscast was done by KTXA and was not shown on CBS News New York.
  6. Thanks, that was my guess for why they were using the flash cam studio. Shirleen Allicot was using it this morning. Mike was in studio.
  7. Noticed for the noon newscast, Lauren is in studio and David looks like he's using the same alternate space that Bill Ritter used. Odd they did not try to match the framing for both camera shots.
  8. Saw a promo on WLNY that "CBS News New York Now" starts July 18th at 9pm. Titan TV description: "Get up to date with the latest news, weather, and sports with CBS News New York Now on WLNY."
  9. New Eyewitness News AccuWeather Promo featuring the song "Weatherman" By Eddie Benjamin.
  10. She’s anchoring on MSNBC today.
  11. For those wondering when WABC might get new graphics. ABC is switching to a shared graphics package for all their O&O stations. ABC Chicago’s WX graphics first piece of new group design mandate https://www.newscaststudio.com/2022/06/29/abc-7-chicago-new-weather-graphics-preview/?utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=socialpost
  12. The only difference I notice is the video wall is bigger. The desk area is very bright and I'm guessing they'll adjust that after the newscast.
  13. Bill has returned to the studio.
  14. Ana Patricia Candiani has joined Univision 41 as the morning and 12:30pm news anchor. https://www.mediamoves.com/2022/06/ana-patricia-candiani-joins-univision-41-team-as-an-anchor.html Tuesday she and Rafael Bello were anchoring the morning newscast.
  15. Bill mentioned two sports anchors were on vacation and the other was out sick, so Mike Marza, who is anchoring in the morning, was in to do the sports report.
  16. Same for this evening. Not COVID related as he was at charity event in Central Park on Saturday. https://abc7ny.com/central-park-yai-event-young-adult-institute-challenge-bill-ritter-new-york-city/11928235/
  17. Noticed Johny Fernandez reporting from Long Island. Is he a recent hire?
  18. The morning newscast is using the same area of the studio.
  19. Sometimes when an anchor is off for the week, they have Jen Maxfield sub. Darlene was off Monday-Tuesday and returned this morning.
  20. Thanks. Today they resumed using the video wall for weather and traffic reports.
  21. Today in New York did not start until 4:07 AM. There was no mention from the anchors of the delayed start. The lower thirds were not displaying and they were not using the graphics for the news intro and tease before the commercial breaks. The other graphs were working. At 4:35 AM they were able to get the lower thirds working. They’ve been using a two shot of the anchors at the desk.
  22. Noticed last and this week they have not been using the video wall in the interview area of the studio for weather or traffic reports. Anyone know if they are doing any updates to that area of the studio?
  23. The anchors are back at the desk.
  24. Newly renovated part of the PIX11 studio, which I believe is used by Dan Abrams for his NewsNation show, is now being used by PIX11 for traffic reports.
  25. Kirstin Cole, who was back today anchoring after being out with COVID, said on an IG story "Now we are all spread out around the studio to try to keep healthy."
