  1. Nydia was on this morning. Interesting that Rick or Sharrie didn’t sub, or even Brian. As for the 4pm, could it be possible that the spot is going to an outside person? Sarah has filled the spot every day she was on, with the exception of one week when Sharrie did the 4pm while Sarah was the feature anchor subbing for Alicia at 4pm/5pm. And Sharrie has done the majority of Fridays at 4pm. Unless they are still trying to figure out weekends, hence the holding pattern?
  2. Then you live in a delusional world. He’s on a channel that broadcasts conspiracy theories and baseless allegations. Have you seen his Twitter account? Some of his tweets are borderline controversial/racist. I was never a fan of his and believed he only got the job because his dad was police commissioner. But despite his following while he was on GDNY, his image is now tainted.
  3. I doubt they’ll put her on weekdays. She will probably get weekend mornings with either Jeff or Amy being bumped to weekdays. Could see the noon/4 person picking up Friday mornings and Lee picking up Friday 4pm. Or for all we know Sam may move to noon/4 (in which case the morning person Lee could split Fridays). Guess we’ll find out in a few weeks.
  4. And it seems as they are: https://www.instagram.com/p/CP8kcUMnKhG/?utm_medium=copy_link Brittany Bell is joining as a meteorologist. Assuming she’s not replacing anyone, they’ll probably carve out the 12noon and 4pm for someone. Now the question is how will things be shuffled around?
  5. Jaclyn Lee anchored again with Gray last Saturday morning. Wonder if she is permanent and if they are going to stick with two different co-anchors for Gray, one on Saturday and one on Sunday, or if one of them will move to evenings. Wonder what’s going on with the 4pm. When Shirleen left, her replacement was named in 4 months. When Monica left, her replacement was named in 5 months. It’s now been 6.5 months since Jeanette left.
  6. It undoubtedly will be either Adam or David.
  7. Well since you went there, our former president is 74 and senile, among other things.
  8. The open was the old open. At the top of the hour Gray said, “Jaclyn Lee joins us”, and Jaclyn said, “so happy to join you this morning”.
  9. Maybe we’ll get an official announcement Monday?
  10. I honestly believe the only shuffling that needs to be done is amongst the 4 afternoon/evening anchors. Have Dave & Liz anchor at Noon and 5pm, and Bill & Sade at 4pm, 6pm, and 11pm. That way each anchor pair is on 2 hours and no one from the morning anchor team (Shirleen) is being stretched. They should invest in an additional weather person honestly.
  11. https://www.google.com/amp/s/editdesk.wordpress.com/2020/10/09/qa-with-wtvd-meteorologist-brittany-bell/amp/ According to this article, 4:30pm and 5:30pm. I wonder if she handles the 12 noon show too.
  12. I actually disagree. I am pretty sure it is for actual risk minimization. Many stations still have weather and sports people working from home.
  13. I replied this after the first time it was posted and he seemed to gloss over it. No way ESPN moves the NBA off Wednesdays. Most people seem to forget when ESPN acquired the NBA, the NHL got knocked off Wednesdays and bumped to ESPN2.
  14. There is a paywall on the Athletic article. What exactly are they getting? Also, come NBA/NHL playoff time, things might get tricky, especially in the first and second round. I assume they will have to utilize all four of ESPN/ESPN2/TNT/TBS.
  15. Walter was off this weekend too. Maggie filled in Saturday, and Sarah soloed on Sunday. They’ve been weird with fill-ins at noon. I think it’s been a while since Christie filled in as well. The reason it’s mentioned is because there is a vacancy. Geez, I didn’t realize it was such a nuisance for the 3-4 of us that actually come to the Philadelphia subforum. We obviously enjoy discussing the observations. If there is any city subforum that has too much over posting and needs cleaning, it’s Chicago.
  16. Did anyone catch if Rick soloed at 10, or if Erin joined him?
  17. Maggie is filling in at 4pm and 5pm at the anchor desk. Erin was filling the feature role at 4pm (and I’m assuming the 5pm too).
  18. Sarah was off all last week, and Brian anchored solo. It’s so weird how they feel he needs a co-anchor today but not last week. They did this with Christie Illeto last time and she ended up being nothing more than a fill-in.
  19. Perhaps we will get a 4pm co-anchor announcement at the same time (and any other chair that needs to be filled as a result of that) so those opens can be recorded too.
  20. I wonder if Chris will be promoted to weekend evenings, and she will get weekend mornings, or will she directly replace Melissa on weekend evenings?
  21. Shocking announcement as Jim Gardner announced at the end of the 11pm news last night that he will step off the 11pm show at the end of May sweeps, with Rick and Sharrie taking over the 11pm as co-anchors. He will then step off the 6pm and retire completely at the end of the year in December. Brian and Sarah will take over the 6pm show. APRIL FOOLS!
  22. Wonder how that will work out television doubleheaderwise. Under the old format, CBS had 8 exclusive doubleheader Sundays, and Fox had 8 exclusive doubleheader Sundays, and week 17 was a doubleheader Sunday for both of them (giving them 9 total each).
  23. Alicia filled in at 4pm and 5pm today at the main anchor desk. She also doubled as the feature anchor. Apparently Sharrie will be on GMA Weekend as the Pop News Anchor this weekend.
  24. Today Maggie filled the feature anchor role during the 4pm, which Alicia has been doing since Jeannette’s departure and Sarah’s slide over to the anchor desk, and in the close Sarah mentioned both Maggie and Alicia’s names. But Alicia was present on the 5pm in her feature anchor role. Can’t quite figure out what 6’s plans are but do feel we are closer to finding out in the coming weeks.
