  1. Aw congrats to him. He looks great! He definitely seems ready to take on the market! Let's see what happens in the coming months. Slightly off topic, question is the social distancing format that we've been seeing on all of television a permanent thing now or are people going to start sitting closer together again now that the vaccinations are increasing? I would hope they return back to the normal format from pre-covid.
  2. Yeah that was nice to see her on the program again. Yeah Shirleen is going to be huge. I honestly don't see her staying at WABC I can see her going bigger than that too. She's such a class act at what she does, kinda like how Sade is.
  3. Yeah, I wonder if its because the Olympics are happening this year.
  4. I think the problem a lot of viewers are having with Mike Marza, including myself is that he tries too hard to be funny and relevant and the 'trying' is more apparent than the relevance or the context of whatever he's saying. It feels like the chemistry is "forced" and it comes across as inauthentic and fake. He is an awesome reporter and anchor, but maybe not the right choice for a lighthearted morning broadcast. I think they need a more "bubbly" chemistry and personality for their weekend morning shows. Or maybe they oughta change the format a bit, maybe remove some of the hard news in the 9
  5. Wow, thats awful. I hope he gets better soon! I remember that was the very newscast that groomed me into my interest into WABC and the news in general. Especially after school during my childhood. My thoughts and prayers are with him.
  6. Yeah I can certainly see Josh Einiger taking over the reigns, when Bill Ritter retires.
  7. Yeah that was so sweet to watch yesterday.
  8. Yeah... I agree. I don't think this is any different than it's ever been at WABC. I really feel like his departure is voluntary.
  9. Yeah, well Rob was a good class act anchor. Sad that he didn't spend as much time there as some of the other seasoned veterans but i'm sure he can always return in the future if there is a fit for him. WABC has gone to hire reporters and anchors whom left only to return again. I do not think he was forced out. Again we don't know the full story but to me someone that is forced out wouldn't write such a beautifully written monologue such as that on Instagram. I feel like he left voluntarily. Aside from WABC Rob has been in the business for a while so maybe he feels like a change in career is go
  10. I wonder if its the actual Andy Grammer song or if its a cover of it.
  11. Wow thats so awesome to see Sade in the morning! Would've loved to have watched that newscast. Is she filling in for her for the rest of the week?
  12. They used to do a 7pm newscast that initially aired on WNBC, but then subsequently moved to their digital subchannel in the late 2000s and early 2010s with Chuck Scarborough. I think it was called New York Nightly News? If my memory serves me correctly..
  13. I wonder if Shirleen will eventually also step down from the Noon Broadcast. Seems like its a lot for her to do. Especially now that she's a mother of two..
  14. There was a weird issue with WABC tonight, their logo kept flashing on the right side: I recorded the video during the Eyewitness News broadcast featuring the first report of Kristine Thorne of course haha. We were just talking about her. 59945863655__35C04A46-12EE-4A85-B4A2-3781ADFA67B1.MOV
  15. I love Kristin's style of reporting. She's super engaging and very compelling the way she tells her stories. So glad she's back! Here's a demo reel from the mid 2010s in honor of her.
  16. Honestly it is just this particular package that we keep griping about haha because it is a downgrade in my opinion from what they've previously used. The Giant Octopus package from late Summer 2011 to Spring 2016 was arguably their best they've ever had: In my opinion those graphics above were their best on air look. Honestly I prefer the KABC graphics over the WABC. Much cleaner and more effective in my opinion. Their previous package looks similar to WLS's current package. I wonder if GO did the same thing.
  17. Looks similar to the basic animations used for the WABC graphics package... I wonder if the same company did it for them.
  18. Does the New Jersey location have new graphics?
  19. Is that the Altice One System you're using Is that the Altice One system you're using @RealNews18
  20. Scott Chapin isn't any younger either. He came back after retiring briefly apparently.
  21. This is the “argument” that Larry had mentioned. He did not pronounce the name “Melania Knaus” (Melania Trump now) correctly and Bill wanted him to say it again and Steve asked why don’t you read it and the argument ensues with Lori in the middle of it. All three of them are no longer with WABC. Steve is out of the news business altogether, Lori is on Good Day New York on Fox 5 and Bill is on the radio out east on Long Island.
  22. What are they airing in leiu of the rebroadcast?
  23. Wow what a moving video, an incredible send off that I quite frankly never seen any station do. WABC did it right. This send off made me tear up a bit. I try not to cry when I see these things, but I honestly did because it was so moving to see how much she was so caring to others and how connected her colleagues, and viewers are with her. I will always remember her. Seeing all of these kind words from her colleagues, friends and family is a testament and a reflection of how she shared her heart and grace with those she touched. Wow, what incredible human. It is not too often we come across in
  24. I’m recording the final broadcast. Hope they do something special for her.
