  1. So many faces have come and gone from KGTV that I remember when growing up (Listed below) that they didn’t interview and some of those videos seen in the reports were pulled from YouTube . Hal Clement Leonard Villarreal Steve Wolford Kyung Lah Lee Ann Kim Bill Gaines Leon Smitherman Fred Blankenship Lisa Lake Lauren Reynolds Laura Castaneda Bianca De La Garza
  2. The VR weather set is only used on PIX+ primetime newscasts but will slowly integrate on KPIX newscasts. didn’t realize they had a secondary studio. That studio is larger than what they currently have.
  3. Now all we wait is for a new studio/set which has been in place since 1995!!!
  4. KPIX was producing local news inserts for its short lived 10pm Seattle News Now. I guess it wasn’t attracting much viewership to launch a news dept. I guess it’s back to square one producing only weather reports for Seattle with the previous CBSN block weather graphics on its website.
  5. Amanda Starrantino out at KPIX and headed down to CBS Los Angeles. https://www.instagram.com/p/Cwh_moZxjqP/?igshid=MzRlODBiNWFlZA==
  6. So that’s where KPIX got their PIX+ promo with a virtual set of a building seen here with Jane Pauley, but in SF instead for their new prime time newscast that will debut one September.
  7. Oh good! I noticed on Sunday during the storm coverage they added a radar box in the corner of the screen to blend in with a smaller UPDATED logo with the time and temp blended in.
  8. FOX 5 will be having special coverage tomorrow since they don’t have a weekend morning show. Shally and Raoul will be anchoring.
  9. Nicole Zaloumis is the new anchor
  10. KBCW will be branded as KPIX+ and will launch an 8 and 9pm show. No word if they are adding a 10pm newscast.
  11. KPIX finally updated their mic flags yesterday.
  12. it’s interesting that Shayla has been filling in for Lisa Argen on weekend mornings the last 2 weeks at KGO. Legendary Spencer Christian was doing weather from home a few weeks ago. Must be under the weather. Frances Dinglasan was filling in for Spencer last week and this weekend. Drew Tuma pulled overtime the other day doing all newscasts except 11pm which looked taped and still worked Friday morning. I guess they couldn’t get Lisa. Spencer or Frances since Sandyha was out. Side note: KPIX. We only have 3 person weather team and we’re still surviving Not that I’m aware of….
  13. KGO is fully staffed 1 morning traffic anchor Jobina Fortson who also does LIVE Desk updates since Alexis Smith left for Seattle years back. 7 On Your Side consumer Michael Finney reporter during the 4,5 and 6pm shows 3 investigative reporters. 1 full time (Dan Noyes) and 2 (Stephanie Sierra /Melanie Woodrow) that report in the field when not doing investigative reports 3 sports crew. (used to be 4) 2 on air (Larry Biel and Chris Alvarez) 3rd one (Casey Pratt) is a senior sports producer and will fill in from time to time 5 weatherperson team. (Used to be 6, recently left to KSHB) the 5th one (Frances Dinglasan) is the back up when needed
  14. Someone posted earlier in the thread that call letters aren’t much of a factor when it comes to affiliation changes. FOX 5 in SD is still operating as KSWB (San Diego’s WB)
  15. Or MyNetwork will go to KICU (KTVU Plus) KOFY could’ve waited instead of picking up GritTV im hoping KBCW takes advantage of KRON losing the prime time slot and KBCW will be the KCAL of the Bay Area.
  16. KPIX tweaked the news ticker as of this morning. It does not have an orange ticker like it used to match with the morning graphics. It now matches what KOVR uses now. KPIX is only using a Headlines ticker instead of weather compared to what KOVR uses. https://youtu.be/eS-EuobGpTo
  17. Sheesh didn’t realize it was that far back. KPIX only got the O&O Desk and Podium in February 2020 during Super Bowl
  18. After 32 years at KRON 4. Pam Moore announces retirement. https://www.kron4.com/news/bay-area/kron4-evening-anchor-pam-moore-announces-retirement/
  19. FTVLive, SFGate and of course that “blog” is reporting ex KTVU anchor Frank Somerville arrested again on suspicion of Battery at his parents home in Berkeley.
  20. Just like FOX5 in San Diego. Their call letters are still KSWB (San Diego’s WB)
  21. Well that didn’t last long. I’m surprised they didn’t utilize the other tracks like KPIX uses.
  22. Late to this post. I have NewsNation now on my YTTV lineup but KRON is still missing.
  23. Aww man, a total downgrade for KSWB when they move. FOX5 is a 2 story building and well kept, however, KUSI’s building is so dated and falling apart. I remember them saying how the roof is leaking in the center of the studio and different parts of the newsroom. I hope Nexstar will invest and will bring the building up to date. KSWB’s building doesn’t have enough space for 2 studios. The way their studio is set up was such a unique design during the WB News at Ten era. (I can’t find the website that shows the design and layout) Basically, it was a hybrid newsroom and corner studio design along with a curved staircase that leads to an upstairs open area with a balcony and a corner office that overlooks downstairs. right below the upstairs corner office used to be the news director’s office which is now the weather center when the relocated the newsroom into the center of the building.
  24. Looks like they also kept the 13 on the desk. KPIX is the only one in the group to change it to the call letters instead.
