  1. Agreed, @CircleSeven. They normally just wear tuxedos and formal gowns. I guess they got tired of being called prude and lightened up a little.
  2. New Orleans TV and WWL Radio reports that former WDSU sports anchor Vince Marinello died Feb. 21 at Dixon Correctional Center in Jackson, La., about 45 minutes north-northeast of Baton Rouge. He was 82 and appeared to have died of natural causes. Marinello was serving a life sentence for the 2006 murder of his estranged wife, Mary Elizabeth, in a parking lot in Metairie. He also worked for WWL Radio and WTKL Kool 95.7 FM (now WKBU).
  3. #MardiGras2020 is in full swing with WWL and WVUE going all out. WWL:
  4. No, they don't need a new set. Now that I think about it, the main Mardi Gras festivities are right around the corner. IMO, it's a good time to unveil the new graphics.
  5. I feel WVUE will be unveiling a new look very soon...maybe even tonight after the Super Bowl. Their latest "Local First" promo hints at it.
  6. With all the coverage on Kobe Sunday, this happened with Allison Morris on MSNBC: Now was it a slip-up? I think so, but many do not and are calling for her firing. Several petitions have been created, too.
  7. Former WDSU anchor Scott Walker is projected to win the Jefferson Parish Council At-Large Seat, Division B.
  8. The Suncoast Regional Emmys aren't until December 14.
  9. "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.
  10. WWL Eyewitness News promo from 1985.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
