  1. Anyone that might know who composed this open for WLII that was used from 199-2002?
  2. FTVLive is reporting today that Tara Finestone is out from CBS Los Angeles after trying her best to stem the budget cuts from ViacomCBS. It sucks that a leader that stood up against the budget cuts also got the boot, but the principle that she stood up against corporate is something to be applauded for. Here is the link from Scott Jones with the email she sent to the newsroom announcing her departure. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2020/10/9/breaking-la-news-director-is-bounced
  3. The noon newscast today didn't have any audio issues, but the 6pm did have audio issues. Makes CBS News look like a competent, well put together network after their Coronavirus issues in NYC. AND that's a pretty low bar.
  4. What a shitshow CTV has become under Bell Media and their ever tightening of budget.
  5. IMHO, it's not bad. I like it. Minimalist and classy. Genuine and warm. It fits both of them well.
  6. CBS just posted a job opening for Anchor/Reporter for CBS 2. https://cbs.avature.net/cbstvscareers/JobDetail/Anchor-Reporter/17544?uid=RJuAAt4uyxvLvJEz&emailCampaignId=270 For what newscast do you think it would be? Weekends or Morning News?
  7. So thrilled for David. Well deserved for him. Here is the press release from WNBC: https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/david-ushery-named-co-anchor-of-news-4s-11pm-newscast/2594006/
  8. I read his contract and it seems he seems to have a very solid case. Hopefully he will be awarded the damages and compensation he needs. Kind of a dick move from Mauldin not to renegotiate his contract. It should've been done as soon as he was promoted to the PM Newscasts.
  9. Jeff Michael is suing KCBS for breach of contract. https://deadline.com/2020/08/jeff-michael-sues-cbs-breach-of-contract-health-discrimination-1203026501/ The lawsuit can be read here: https://pmcdeadline2.files.wordpress.com/2020/08/20bbcv00523-wm.pdf
  10. What was she reprimanded for in the early 2000's?
  11. As I am typing this right now, CBS2 launched CBSN Chicago. Watching it right now on CBS2Chicago.com

    CBS Evening News

    I like the nod that Mia did to Scott Pelley with the "For all of us at CBS News in Texas and around the World"

    CBS Evening News

    Jim Benneman anchored the CBS Evening News waaay better than Norah...
  14. WFTV is having Greg and Martha split up WTMO has the anchors in the same studio but at opposite ends of the desks.
