  1. And with the writing on the wall for the past few months, it's now official- Lucy Noland is leaving FOX29 May 30th Philly.com article
  2. He's been France 24's White House correspondent for years and recently announced on twitter that he'd be reporting for the AP as well. I'm guessing the deal is something along the lines of the latter of what you said- France 24 is his primary employer (and AP affiliate) and while out and about around the world, he can file reports for the AP as well.
  3. Because apparently she got the boot- Philly.com - Traffic reporter Jessica Boyington out at NBC10
  4. Take into account that "Top 30" recently ended production so they have some wiggle room in the schedule. 6:30 has become one of the slots where FOX O&O's have done test runs in recent past. Maybe they're testing the waters for potentially pairing it with "25 Words Or Less" come fall somewhere on the schedule.
  5. Shaina was introduced at the top of the 9am hour this morning on Good Day and is hanging at the desk for Valentines Day talk. She'll make her debut on the anchor desk at 6 & 11 starting next Monday
  6. And that's a wrap on Iain Paige who will move on from WTXF at the end of the month after 6 years with the station http://www.philly.com/entertainment/tv/iain-page-leaves-fox--20190108.html Now if only they can somehow make Lucy exclusive to the 11pm show I might try watching their 10pm again
  7. It looks like WTXF has launched a version of KSAZ's "News Now" rolling news stream on their Youtube page. I saw Steve Keeley post a screenshot from it yesterday and I believe they start streaming when Good Day ends at 10 with an undetermined end time based on the last few days' streams archived on the page. Actually, scrolling back on their YT page it appears this actually launched on July 11th. I stream Good Day every morning and have seen zero mention of this on-air or during breaks.
  8. Yesterday was apparently Dave Schratwieser's last day. I didn't catch the evening shows to see if anything was done but he did stop by Good Day for a retrospective and look down memory lane
  9. Dave Schratwieser looks to be hanging up his mic [MEDIA=twitter]1048035154625798149[/MEDIA]
  10. Aaaaand it looks like JC is donezo at The Talk, her decision, to be announced today and effective immediately... https://money.cnn.com/2018/09/17/media/julie-chen-leaving-the-talk/index.html https://people.com/tv/julie-chen-leaves-the-talk/
  11. Apologies to Philly outlier and fierce independent WFMZ who are picking up "Pickler & Ben" for a 9am run to replace "Harry".
  12. early Philly report from TitanTV: KYW gets a double run of Face the Truth at 9 & 9:30 am, displacing The Doctors (which also recently had its afternoon run dropped in favor of a newscast) WPHL lists TBA at 4pm with the loss of Crime Watch Daily. Another interesting note is Jerry Springer is still listed at 1pm which would air concurrently with the Springer launch on CW daytime on WPSG. WTXF lists TBA at 2pm with the loss of Harry. Since there's no sign of The Doctors on KYW sister station WPSG, this seems like a likely landing spot after the Dr. Oz 1pm run (please tell me there's a station somewhere out there running a "Doc Block" with these shows).
  13. ABC News has a stream carrying breaking/"moments ago" video along with taped pieces from their other properties (complete with a news update L-bar) and vintage "from the vault" stories at https://abcnews.go.com/live. I believe they're typically live weekday afternoons, much in the same vein as CBSN
  14. http://www.tribunemedia.com/tribune-media-terminates-merger-agreement-with-sinclair-broadcast-group-inc-files-lawsuit-for-breach-of-contract/ “In light of the FCC’s unanimous decision, referring the issue of Sinclair’s conduct for a hearing before an administrative law judge, our merger cannot be completed within an acceptable timeframe, if ever,” said Peter Kern, Tribune Media’s Chief Executive Officer. “This uncertainty and delay would be detrimental to our company and our shareholders. Accordingly, we have exercised our right to terminate the Merger Agreement, and, by way of our lawsuit, intend to hold Sinclair accountable.”
