  1. After watching the video, I'm pleasantly surprised to see how polished his wife is. This has the potential to be good - but I fear the production value may hold it back...
  2. True that. I’m still sad Andrea Cambern “retired” - and it’s been 7 years.
  3. Not to speculate, but I could see her basically replacing Tracy Townsend (and presumably her hefty paycheck).
  4. I’m assuming because she’s been retweeting from the Ohio Dept of Agriculture...much like Kocot and the Department of Natural Resources. And...I didn’t know about the vacant weekend position. I’m assuming Karina Nova doesn’t want that gig? (I think she’s the rising star in the WBNS Tegna era, if she sticks around.)
  5. Within days of Kocot. But it looks like they both landed gigs with the State of Ohio. (See Twitter...)
  6. Former WBNS anchor Andrea Cambern posted publicly about it... Betting the mood is somber today on Twin Rivers Dr...
  7. WTOL has let go of its news director. “Not related to the new ownership...” https://www.toledoblade.com/local/city/2019/06/05/anthony-knopps-out-as-wtol-news-director/stories/20190605117 I am surprised by this, particularly since he came from WTVG.
  8. WLWT news anchors Sheree Paolello and Mike Dardis are married... https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.cincinnati.com/amp/1305327001 I started watching the WLWT live stream when their engagement went “viral” - and I must admit, their chemistry is apparent on air.
  9. It would be nice, but I don't see it happening. With them going 'cheap' with Sara Shookman after Kris Pickel left, they could've had their chance to hire someone with more experience to co-anchor at 6 & 11 pm. I do think this is the opportunity to rethink their entire newscast team lineup. (Including mornings...) Deep speculation - but could this open the door for Russ Mitchell to go back to New York? I see the Jay Crawford hire as more of a potential Russ Mitchell replacement (a la Rob Powers on WEWS) than a Jim Donavan replacement. I think they're grooming Camino for that role.
  10. Finally a 5pm for WKYC! Hate to enter speculation territory (but I will...) - my money is on Betsy Kling having some sort of regular anchor role. They're using her to anchor regularly now, in addition to doing the weather and cleaning out the office refrigerators. Even with such a deep bench of anchor talent (Jim Donavan, ex-19'ers Lynna Lai and the underrated Danielle Serino, plus folks like Monica Robins, Leon Bibb and Robin Swoboda on standby), they use Kling a lot. But surprisingly, she's really good at anchoring. (Better than Sara Shookman, IMO.) On another note - it's kinda sad they'd drop Chris Tye for Jay Crawford, since Crawford has to be commanding more of a $$ than Tye.
  11. Crain's Cleveland Business has an interesting article on how a (fingers-crossed) successful Browns team benefits the stations. https://www.crainscleveland.com/kevin-kleps-blog/browns-resurgence-good-everyone-cleveland-tv-industry The author seems to be poking a bit of fun at WKYC's 'director of content:' #ThisIsTegna
  12. WSLS interviewed the designer of their set, Michael Wright - a few nuggets of insight here. https://www.wsls.com/news/virginia/roanoke/take-a-look-at-the-brand-new-10-news-studio It is obviously a duplicate of WJXT and WDIV - but it looks much better than that cramped corner they used to have.
  13. Could a clue be in another post on today's FTV Live? https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/4/26/black-news-channel-to-launch-this-fall Or...is her ego so large she's headed towards something a bit more....mainstream? I'm not so sure though since she undoubtedly has a very "urban" style...and was a major component to WOIO's success in the mid-2000's. (Her sparring with Mike Trivisonno was classic.)
  14. As long as they don’t drop “Primetime News” - then we will be OK. But I do agree their look has aged quite well.
  15. It isn’t too hard to read with enthusiasm...or is it? Not to go into speculation territory here, but could Chris Tye be coming to 19? If Tanaka signed a three-year deal, his contract would be up this summer. And if Tye has a 6-month non-compete, it would expire around that time.... A quick look at Instagram shows Tye is friends with Jason Nicholas. So, who knows....
