  1. The Suncoast Regional Emmys aren't until December 14.
  2. "The Times-Picayune/New Orleans Advocate" has a somber story about what happened behind the scenes at WVUE when Nancy Parker died in the plane crash Friday.
  3. WWL Eyewitness News promo from 1985.
  4. Yes, this is terrible news. Nancy was beloved in the New Orleans and Baton Rouge areas. I remember her from her WAFB days, too...even met her at the SWAC basketball tournament back in the mid-1990s when the tournament was held at the Baton Rouge Centroplex. She was a very down-to-earth person...very nice. My condolences to her husband Glynn Boyd, their kids and their extended family.
  5. All New Orleans stations have morning traffic reporters except WGNO. Chief meteorologist Hank Allen does traffic with his weather segments. I believe all get traffic info from TotalTraffic N.O. The traffic reporters have helped out with hurricane coverage in the past.
  6. It's the same in the immediate Bay Area. Oakland USED to be relatively cheap but gentrification has changed that, especially in the western part of the city. Lots of folks commute from Tracy and Stockton as well as Gilroy to the south.
  7. Former WDSU anchor Scott Walker is running for one of the at-large seats on the Jefferson Parish Council this year, according to The New Orleans Advocate. It is unknown which at-large seat he's running for. He'll join former WVUE reporter Jennifer Van Vrancken - who plans to run for re-election for her District 5 Jefferson Parish Council seat. Former WDSU anchor Helena Moreno is currently chairwoman of the New Orleans City Council, representing the city as one of the at-large members.
  8. WVUE's "Morning Edition" expanding to weekends Also: Meet Sherman Desselle, WDSU’s newest anchorman
  9. High turnover doesn't help either.
  10. As long as Eric Paulsen is there, I don't see WWL losing the noon slot.
  11. Georges said some T-P reporters will be hired by The Advocate, but everyone else gonna have to find a job out of state.
  12. It was way worse the last couple of sweeps period with WWL in third place nearly all slots...and it showed. Maybe the turmoil has simmered down a bit at WWL. I see they're very close with WVUE in a number of slots.
  13. Good looking out.
  14. Here'e your yearly Mardi Gras costumes from the WWL-TV crew. Caresse Jackman as "Storm". https://twitter.com/CaresseJ/status/1103031050161262593?s=20 Paul Dudley and Kristen Pierce (Men In Black) https://twitter.com/DCMonteverde/status/1102986132411858946?s=20 Duke Carter channeling his inner Beyonce? https://twitter.com/dcarterII/status/1103016158503014402?s=20 Sheba Turk (Queen of Hearts), Eric Paulsen (Alice), Dave Nussbaum, April Dupree (Rabbit), Doug Mouton and Than Troung (chickens). https://twitter.com/AprilDupre_/status/1103006858447650816?s=20 Chef Kevin Belton (The Mad Hatter) https://twitter.com/ChefKevinBelton/status/1103001743011528704?s=20 Jade Cunningham, now-retired Carl Arredondo and Richard Lecompte (Black Panther) https://twitter.com/carl_arredondo/status/1102983823346810880?s=20
