  1. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2021/9/28/breaking-news-john-is-flushed-in-milwaukee Assistant ND John LaPorte (WITI, WTMJ, WEAU, KIRO) is out at WDJT
  2. I am actually predicting that Golf Channel will go off first (and golf coverage be merged into NBCSN) before NBCSN goes off completely due to GC closing their Florida studios (relocating to their CT homebase) and cancelled all of the programming (most notably Morning Drive) and staff with it
  3. Did a Google search after you mentioned it and this article popped up.. Geez.... https://www.citizen-times.com/story/news/local/2020/07/10/biltmore-park-ponzi-schemer-hal-brown-sentenced-federal-prison/5412474002/
  4. When you think things couldn't get worse for Ted, well.. (from WISN radio host Dan O'Donnell)
  5. Lyle is an one-hit wonder (WAVY)
  6. Apparently Alicia Roberts is gone too...I noticed she changed her twitter handle/facebook link to remove the 46, and ig is "on tv" https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2020/9/22/does-meredith-hate-women
  7. Jessob Reisbeck to WDJT as new evening anchor.. https://amp.jsonline.com/amp/5857951002
  8. Correction: at least since the late 80's...KIMO was at the top before that
  9. John LaPorte is quitting from his post as KIRO ND after a year to head back to Milwaukee to be WDJT's Assistant ND. LaPorte was the architect of WITI's quiet rise to market leader over the past decade, so this is a huge (much needed) boost. He will new GM join Anne Brown, another ex WITI-er https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2020/8/11/breaking-seattle-news-director-up-and-quits-after-barely-a-year-on-the-job
  10. They have changed their Facebook logo to the current FTS format and updated their weather app. The Watch Live stand by has also changed, a sign of things to come?
  11. Myrka has resigned in protest. Maria is lucky to have her on her side...she's truly a ride or die friend https://www.explica.co/did-he-quit-myrka-dellanos-is-also-leaving-al-rojo-vivo/
  12. First Sven Sundgaard from their sister station KARE got the boot for similar comments, now Marty. Well at least Tegna is consistent.
  13. Over and out for GM Mark Strachota after 6 years at WDJT...Anne Brown from crosstown WITI will be his successor.. Will be interesting to see how she will shape the station... https://www.jsonline.com/story/entertainment/television-radio/2020/07/13/tv-vet-mark-strachota-retiring-weigel-stations-milwaukee-witi-tvs-anne-brown-named-gm/5428900002/
  14. Update: Aloha returned last week after dealing with a family situation. Hope everything will be well for Aloha and her family. In Orlando news, Bob Frier left WOFL last week after over a decade. A huge loss for them, IMHO.
  15. Scott Steele has settled his lawsuit from WTMJ. Good for him, never was a fan of his shtick, but it sucks that a longtime face gets treated this way. Coincidentally, I saw (from one my FB friends) that a fill in host of WISN AM's morning show talked about a Facebook post he saw of Spunky , Scott's former sidekick at WITI. https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/local/2020/05/22/scott-steeles-federal-lawsuit-charging-anti-semitism-wtmj-tv-has-been-settled/5241190002/ https://newstalk1130.iheart.com/featured/gregory-jon/content/2020-05-21-a-picture-of-spunky-sparks-a-great-conversation-about-social-media/
  16. Speaking of KSWB news, looks like Aloha Taylor is missing again. (since Mar 26 when she last posted on FB) (It popped up in my head when I watched her last day on IG) Heard rumors on social media that it might be permanent, but she is still on the bios and I don't see a Meteorologist opening, just an anchor and Tabitha's old position (sports) (Even though Aloha's bio states she is a watcher anchor instead of the typical chief meteorologist)
  17. Nicole Koglin leaving WITI https://onmilwaukee.com/movies/articles/nicole-koglin-leaves-fox-6.html
  18. Scott Steele suing WTMJ for discrimination.. https://www.jsonline.com/story/news/local/2019/12/23/former-weather-anchor-scott-steele-accuses-wtmj-anti-semitism/2735751001/
  19. Joel Cheatwood out at Tegna! The reserve course may have started to begun... https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/12/23/breaking-look-whos-leaving-tegna (via ftv) This come months after Tegna was looking to dump the millennial experiment and get back to news.... https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/10/6/is-tegna-ending-the-experiment https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/10/8/at-east-tegna-tried
  20. Ch-ch-changes at WTMJ... https://www.jsonline.com/story/entertainment/television-radio/2019/12/19/wtmj-tvs-carole-meekins-leaving-10-p-m-newscast-positively-show-works/2699964001/
  21. Finally...a bit of the WSBT version of the Making A Difference promo campaign. Been wondering about this for years. (1:08)
  22. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/10/29/nexstar-happy-with-wgn-not-so-much-with-ktla Could be a shakeup at KTLA coming, with the first shoe obviously being Don Corsini's retirement, as mentioned in the LA forum. They are pleasantly surprised (thankfully) at WGN on the other hand.
  23. As I predicted via Discord - Mary Bubala has resurfaced crosstown at Sinclair's WBFF https://www.baltimoresun.com/opinion/columnists/zurawik/bs-ed-zontv-bubala-fox45-20190924-iusvga7ebnebnltnovzsurv6i4-story.html
  24. KXTV ND out... https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/5/5/news-director-out-in-sacramento
