  1. Such a class act. We shall overcome, Ukee. Blessed be my friend.
  2. Found this gem, that I had been looking for YEARS, in Mike Parson's YouTube Channel. This rare cut of KNBC's LA Groove Theme used for closing the Channel 4 News weekend.
  3. Same with KCBS. They still list Tara Finestone as their VP/News Director on their website, even though she has been gone for a while.
  4. Anyone that might know who composed this open for WLII that was used from 199-2002?
  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. What was she reprimanded for in the early 2000's?
  9. As I am typing this right now, CBS2 launched CBSN Chicago. Watching it right now on CBS2Chicago.com
  10. 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"
  11. Jim Benneman anchored the CBS Evening News waaay better than Norah...
  12. Christine Bentley got fired from CFTO, was anchor of the 6pm longer than Ken Shaw yet he got a few more years than her. Oh well. Nathan Downer is now the 12PM news co-anchor and on January 7, will be the 6PM news co-anchor. I like him.
  13. Why didn't Susan work out? She was pushed out?
  14. Christine Bentley was also fired from CTV Toronto. She mentioned it during an interview promoting her show with Kate Wheeler.
  15. Eyewitness News during the early hours of 9/11/2001 with Diana Williams and Bill Ritter:
  16. T minus 10 days for Diana Williams' retirement.
  17. Hate the music. Love everything else.
  18. I hope they fixed this open too. The version posted here says News York’s.
  19. 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.
  20. 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.
  21. 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...
