    The Channel 6 Action News Thread

    Watched the beginning of Action News at Noon today with Alicia filling in (solo) for Rick and Sarah. I walked away for a bit, and when I returned at 12:30 Ali Gorman was anchoring. Wonder if it was planned that way, or if Alicia had to step away for something.

    WNBC - News 4 New York

    All five are still on website: Huff, Price, Cimino, Miranda, and Grow. I wonder if they’re following WCAU’s lead and double teaming in the morning.

    2018-19 Syndication News

    I know you hate soaps, but if they cancel Days eventually, I doubt NBC will give it back to the affiliates for syndicated fare. As long as Days continues to perform okay, there is no reason to cancel it.

    2018-19 Syndication News

    Not exactly syndication news, but DAYS OF OUR LIVES has been renewed through 2019-2020, so any potential syndicated fair will not be replacing it.

    Good Morning America

    Doesn’t have to be a journalist on staff, does it? It could be celebraties (like Live does when one person’s off).

    2018-19 Syndication News

    Doubt that. WNBC tried this on their main channel and many of the others tried it on their COZI subchannel and it flopped. I wonder if KTRK is also getting Wheel as part of this deal. Same article also mentions they’re not sure what they’re putting there yet. I wonder if Millionaire or Right This Minute might move to the NBC O&Os since something will have to budge on the ABC O&Os with Tamren’s new show.

    No, the midday news is being cut to a half hour. WNBC has had a similar show for a while.

    Out & About

    Seems like it was a personal decision. Plenty of in-house candidates to replace her. I hope we get another Tuss/Culver pairing at least once in the interim. They should ship one of those guys up to Philly to anchor weekend evenings with Denise.

    The Channel 6 Action News Thread

    So every Friday Melissa Magee “fills in” for David Murphy doing weather at noon, but today Cecily filled in at noon, and now Melissa Magee is filling in for her at 11pm. I haven’t seen Cecily on the noon since she got promoted to evenings. Speaking of the noon newscast on Fridays, why don’t they just change the opening to drop Sarah and David, keep Rick, and add Melissa? Ever since Sarah was added to Sunday evenings, Sarah has been off Fridays, and Melissa has filled in for David.

    November 2018 Sweeps Results

    How is this possible, yet it’s also claimed that adding more news also makes stations more money?

    So you’re suggesting they have 5 male anchors and 4 female anchors on weekdays? I don’t see that happening. It makes no sense for Ted to anchor a half hour. You’re also demoting Carolyn to a half hour. And if Chuck is going to reduce his duties I see him dropping the 11pm, not the 5pm and 6pm. The NBC O&Os tried the 7pm newscasts on COZI already and they ended up dropping them.

    The CBS 3 Eyewitness News Thread

    Is there a reason this guy is allowed to keep trolling this thread and the Fox29 thread? I mean, I disagreed with someone in another thread once and was sanctioned immediately for being argumentative (which I was not and the sanction was later overturned). He was the same way over on the yahoo group for Philadelphia TV news pre-TVNewsTalk, with the same user name and all.

    NBC 10 Thread

    Money. Plain and simple. If you are gonna go with variety why not go with a different pair for 6pm and 11pm too. Variety is great, but it doesn’t come cheap either. Seems like they’ve settled on new weekday pairs: Early Morning: Lucy & Tracy Late Morning: Vai & Tracy 11am: Vai & Rosemary 4pm: Jackie & Erin 5pm: Keith & Erin 6pm/11pm: Jim & Jackie Seems like they’ve switched some of Tammie and Glenn’s time slots too.

    A call to the media

    I’m sure there are legal ramifications too of reporting something that’s not on paper, hence why it’s reported the way it is.

    Megyn Kelly Today Officially Cancelled

    Bad idea. Kathie Lee wants to retire soon and Hoda does not want to anchor four hours straight. I just don’t see them giving it back to the affiliates. Too much money to be lost at network level. Will repeat too much money to be lost by giving hour back to affiliates. I appreciate your enthusiasm for game shows, but I don’t think the networks share that enthusiasm. And let’s be honest, most of the game shows you bring up most people don’t remember. CBS TM runs 7-9am, so having hard news at 9 would not compete with CBS. Plus Today is light on the hard news from 7-9, why would they want to do at 9? Let’s be real, people hated her show before it even started. That’s how polarized our country has become.
