  1. If the Nexstar station is affiliated with a Big 4, I see the status quo remaining in place. But if Nexstar has a MNTV affiliate, I could see a swap happening.
  2. I would think so too as he is most deserving and probably my favorite on the weather team, but I’m thinking of the optics of it. Is it a good idea to have the three men weekdays and the two women on weekends?
  3. Love Cindy, but feel Chris and Mary would’ve been better choices and better use of resources. They could’ve handed off the noon to Dana Tyler.
  4. Guessing this is Gray’s replacement on weekend mornings. That was quick by WPVI standards. https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/local/article263922491.html
  5. Don’t understand why they can’t make AFG and Ana full-time hosts. They’ve had more than 5 full time hosts in the past, and this would give all the hosts leeway to take on other projects on the side. They can have all six hosts on on the same day too.
  6. Have they hired people to do the local news and weather cut-ins in Atlanta, Seattle, and Tampa?
  7. Christie Ileto anchoring at the network on America This Morning today.
  8. Another mention in the article that I agree with is that CBS didn’t go with a unified branding, particularly Next Weather as not many stations use it.
  9. Well this is stupid. While it may benefit KCAL, it’ll probably hurt KCBS. Who wants to watch 2 hours of national news and features at 4am and then almost an exact repeat at 7am? Would it not make more sense to simulcast the 4-7am local newscast on 2&9 instead?
  10. I’ll disagree on that. While he may be knowledgeable, I don’t think he has the greatest on-air persona, and feel Krystal was better at that, and management obviously did too, hence why she was filling in weekday evenings.
  11. Looks like 10 is back to full strength in the weather department. https://www.bizjournals.com/philadelphia/news/2022/07/11/nbc10-replaces-hurricane-schwartz-and-krystal-klei.html
  12. Keith filling in Saturday morning and Erin filling in Saturday evening. Over on 6, Rick is filling in in the evening.
  13. https://www.tvinsider.com/1041362/jeopardy-wheel-of-fortune-airs-first-schedule/amp/ Interesting read on which airs first and where.
  14. Bill’s got to be up there in age, maybe 65? Can’t imagine he wants to work past 70. Really liked Krystal and feel she was underutilized. Steve just doesn’t do it for me, not sure why they picked him up. I imagine they’ll utilize some of the T62 weather people as they did one morning last week. What exactly has been her role there? Has she even been on air?
  15. Actually thought about this before you brought it up. Could see them going with a shorter version, like Star Network, with stations branding as Star ##.
  16. On a separate note, Johnny Archer has anchored alongside Tracy the past two days, and I must say they work really well together. 10 should think about pairing them together for either 11am and 5pm, or 4pm and 6pm.
  17. WCAU has had some guy in Dallas doing the weather weekend mornings while Krystal is filling in on weekday evenings for Brittney who is on maternity leave. Honestly surprised they just don’t have their NYC station meteorologists fill in as they are the closest.
  18. Just a follow up, DFW also has a similar set up as they have an Indy station too. I wonder if the 10pm news at WPHL becomes an in-house operation, and if so, what happens to Gray Hall?
  19. If the affiliations get pulled I could see them doing what they’ve done with their duopoly station in Miami, affiliate with MNTV.
  20. WPVI had similar absences (except theirs were spread across the entire day, in some instances 7 of the 8 weekday anchors being off) a few weeks ago for two straight weeks.
  21. Was kinda hoping it would have taken over the 9pm hour on CNN.
  22. Have they mentioned what’s going to replace The Good Dish? Maybe Rachael Ray from overnights?
  23. What would a combined Discovery+/HBO Max be called? Warner+?
