  1. Not sure if you’ve looked over in the Philly forums, but WPVI just hired WCAU’s former morning traffic person, Jessica Boyington. She did a feature story on the morning news this week. Karen primarily does traffic on the morning news (but does fill in on weather as she’s a meteorologist and was the weekend morning weather person before being promoted). Makes you wonder if Jessica is taking Karen’s place, and if Karen is moving to WABC.
  2. I wonder if she’ll be doing traffic or something else. If traffic, I wonder if Karen is headed to WABC?
  3. Harry Smith and Paula Zahn lasted longer as a team. There are various issues here. CBS doesn’t do a good job “grooming” their talent. Additionally, they are happy with many of their O&Os being bottom dwellers and those ratings translate to the national broadcasts that follow the local ones.
  4. I’m a fan of Jeff, but his ship has sailed. He should’ve been tapped for the EN back when he was a rising star at the network. Same with Dickerson, he’s good at what he does, but nobody knew who he was when he was put in the FTN chair. They lack good journalist with star power.

  6. Don’t you mean the Mountain feed on an hour delay? The Eastern/Central feed would be on a two hour delay.
  7. And local news from 4:30-7 is too much, adding on an additional 2 hours will be overwhelming. They already repeat stories as it is. And the FOX affiliates that go to 9 or 10 already rely on infotainment stories, it’s not like they’re providing additional news stories. And for those of you who keep talking about how great Pelley was, realize you were in the minority. He did nothing for the ratings.
  8. Sarah is in on a Friday once again! Interestingly, her recent sub, Christie Ileto, was in the newsroom with a preview of the later shows.
  9. Maybe a 3-way swap? Jummy Olabanji from WNBC to WRC, Adam Tuss from WRC to WCAU, and Rosemary Connors from WCAU to WNBC? Jummy gets to return to DC and WRC presumably fills their weekend morning vacancy left by Angie Goff. WCAU gets another male anchor (can co-anchor weekend evenings and become a rotating 11am weekday anchor) and WCAU also trims their already overloaded female anchor bench, and WNBC gets a rising star in Rosemary Connors to fill their vacancy. If Jummy is returning for weekend mornings, makes you wonder why she left WJLA to begin with. Update: seems Jummy will be the LiveDesk anchor in the mornings: https://tvnewscheck.com/article/more-news/234565/wrc-adding-jummy-olabanji-to-morning-news/
  10. Nexstar acquiring it won’t affect the cap at all. Not sure I agree with the independent assessment. At least MNTV provides two hours of programming every night.
  11. I wonder if Nexstar would be able to acquire it to pair with WJW and acquire the MNTV affiliation.
  12. So it seems that it’s in their best interest to keep WISH/WNDY together and WTTV/WXIN together. Perhaps this can be accomplished with an affiliation switch. See below. I dont believe WTTV was in the top 4 back then, but WISH was, so it was legal back then. If affiliation switches are needed to make this happen the more likely scenario I see happening is: WTTV: CBS WISH: FOX WNDY: MNTV WXIN: CW
  13. You know people are on vacation when they have to pull in Monica Malpass to anchor at noon.
  14. When he stepped away from the 11pm in 2015, he also said he planned on fully retiring towards the end of 2017 (you can find this in articles from that time), so I doubt he would’ve still been anchoring the 6pm if he were alive today.
  15. Where is Alicia Vitarelli? Is she on some sort of leave? I have not seen her in weeks. It was nice to see Sarah filling her role on the 4pm show today (the two main anchors usually fill the role when Alicia is off). Both Sarah and Alicia were included in the closing.
