News Director (7/8)



  1. Ryan Kristafer is being groomed for something.
  2. Stunned she lasted this long in the #1 market.
  3. They are supposed to be relocating to brand new studios in Bethpage by the end of this year. Not sure how covid has impacted that timeline.
  4. Pretty damning (and accurate) indictment from Diana on how NYC is these days. Good on her for speaking out and hoping for all the best in regards to her health.
  5. News 12 LI evening anchor Stone Grissom is leaving the station, effective today. Hopefully this is his choice and not another cost-cutting move by Altice. Stone was a fantastic anchor and really steadied the nightly newscasts on N12. Best of luck to him.
  6. Craig said today (on Instagram) that he will be reporting, not anchoring. Reading between the lines on social media, it looks as if Kala is leaving PIX. Just speculation at this point.
  7. Something tells me you’ll survive.
  8. Didn’t see this posted anywhere here yet: Longtime News 12 reporter Erin Colton to take over morning anchor chair following retirement of Carol Silva Definitely the most logical choice. She is fantastic in the field, one of the top AM reporters in the market. I think it’s a great choice, but it also speaks to the lack of a bench News 12 LI has within its anchor ranks. There was no one internally who is well known to LI viewers that they could have plucked and put in that seat, short of sliding over Elisa from traffic and features. The amount of talent that they have had walk out the door in the recent past is stunning. Drew Scott, Lea Tyrell, Colleen McVey, Bill Korbel and now Carol Silva. Bill and Carol’s retirements seem genuine, the others not so much (as we know from the lawsuit.)
  9. Ben Aaron is a fantastic pickup for them. He’s hysterical, creates great content for TV and social media. One of the smarter pickups they have made. I’m also glad to see Marysol back again!
  10. Michelle always belonged on weekday mornings. Only reason she didn’t get it when Lori left was because of the previous unethical ND who also didn’t promote white talent. I see Shirleen as much more of a nightside anchor.
  11. Curious as well. Hard to think that either Bill or Rich is leaving.
  12. I would doubt it. I think they are probably going solo because it’s summer, people are on vacation and they are short staffed. They definitely weren’t expecting two anchor vacancies let alone on the same show.
  13. Very surprised to see Suki leave. I feel that her and Jenn really developed that show more than it has in years. She had developed a reputation for being difficult to work with, however I think her two years at Fox 5 have helped rehabilitate her image. She may have wanted yesterday to be her last day instead of today so as not to overshadow Jenn’s longer planned departure.
  14. Not surprising considering Altice’s major goal is likely to combine all the regions into one News12 network that serves all of the tri-state.
  15. She pulled off a rare feat in NY television: never got on the bad side of Suki.
