  1. I hope they fixed this open too. The version posted here says News York’s.
  2. Well, if Howell fires Tara Finestone, that would be a step in the right direction. Steve Mauldin allowed Finestone to gut the News Department and hasn't hired new personnel. I can't believe I'm saying this, but that shit didn't happen when Nancy Bauer Gonzales was the cray cray head honcho at CBS2/KCAL... Pat Harvey and Jim Hill are literally the only people keeping KCBS in life support, so it would be extremely stupid if Howell gets rid of them. BUT, if KCBS is going to be managed like JetBlue is being managed right now, then it will be painful down the road.
  3. FTV Live is reporting tonight that KDKA President & General Manager, Jay Howell, has been promoted to President & General Manager of CBS 2 and KCAL 9. Prior to KDKA, Howell was President & General Manager of CBS 13 and KMAX in Sacramento.
  4. Scott Jones is reporting that KNBC Assistant News Director, Renee Washington, has been promoted to Vice President of News at NBC4. She takes over from Todd Mokharti,who was promoted to President & General Manager of NBC 7 and Telemundo 20 in San Diego in March of this year. Renee was previously an Executive Producer at WPVI and WABC, and served as Assistant News Director at KABC before joining KNBC as Assistant News Director. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/6/7/new-news-director-named-in-la
  5. I like the new feel and how they mash up. Their chemistry will be better with time.
  6. Holy shit, talk about blowing up a station as bad as Finestone/Mauldin have blown up Channel 2 and 9. Utterly ridiculous.
  7. I wonder what scott jones said about the next shoe about to drop at KCBS but its on the patron site. Anyone has any insight?
  8. That is true, but also how long was Kiernan steering the ship? Almost 10 years. As of Jeff Harris, I may be the only one but I am liking their newscasts. Especially not being afraid of leading the 10PM News with Investigations. It is a different product and I hope that Chicagoans do take notice of that fact. Just with Dave Savini's investigation of Sterogenics and the subsequent passing of Matt Heller and his last interview on CBS 2, that was great journalism. However, I would love to see Mai and Jim together again and a better morning news team. It was a mistake to have let Roseanne go. The 5,6 & 10pm should've been hers.
  9. WNBC's producted suffered under Vicki Burns. When she was in LA for Carmaggedon, KNBC staffers were seriously disturb at how little she cared about that because she doesn't own a car, and on the interwebz it was alleged that she would be out the station by the 5pm News. So we'll see.
  10. YUP! When Roseanne would fill in with Rob, the newscast seemed way better. She should've been the evening news anchor when Diann was booted out. Would've been 11 years of a great thing...
  11. Unless NBC buys WRDQ and moves Telemundo 31 on Channel 27. If and big if, Hearst tries to bid for WFTV, divesting WKCF and WRDQ from WESH and FTV respectively, this could be a good thing to happen to NBCU and Telemundo.
