  1. Jackie was missing tonight for election coverage.
  2. Actually like this move. Maybe they can add Theresa to “The Noon” and 6pm to co-anchor with him?
  3. Or maybe the midday guy will do the 6pm.
  4. Is Adam still solo at midday and 5pm?
  5. Forgot to post, but Jillian Mele was co-anchoring with Walter this past Sunday.
  6. While I agree @MorningNews often gets salty, I kind of agree with them this time as it is somewhat confusing why this is not ok to post. Also, Today in South Florida is used by WTVJ, while WSVN uses Today in Florida.
  7. Keith at WCAU is usually no tie in the mornings, but the morning newscasts tend to be a little softer.
  8. I don’t foresee NBC going “halfway” and cutting sone nights but not all. Do you know how confusing they would be to the viewer? It’s all or nothing.
  9. Wonder if they want to have one of the western feeds since Aaron anchors there. Surprised they didn’t follow the other O&Os in moving Kelly to 3pm (and have Dateline at 2pm, Access at 1pm, and NBCND at 12noon). I must say with regards to NBC News Daily that I’m surprised they don’t have their strongest anchors (Kate and Aaron) anchoring the “East coast” feeds.
  10. I actually found The Talk and The Real both to be too “fake”. The View has never been afraid to have differing views. Just seems like the other two’s hosts were going out of their way to agree with each other and not talk about real hot topics.
  11. The sad part is that Andy and Jerry think that’s true. I actually think that Jerry drags down the show.
  12. You all do realize CBS has owned WUPA since 1994, right? If they wanted to move the affiliation, they would’ve done so a while ago. A lot of major market CBS affiliates are in 3rd or 4th place, you don’t see CBS trying to move affiliations there, do you? Also, Gray owns other CBS affiliates, I don’t thing CBS is looking to piss off Gray. What NBC did in Boston is completely different, as they did not own a station there prior.
  13. Is the weekend morning spot vacant? I honestly don’t remember as I feel 3 has gone through so many meteorologists in the past few years.
  14. Don’t forget KPIX too. I’ve always felt the Eyewitness News name was a better fit for CBS stations as their logo is an eye. And the Action News name would be a better fit for ABC stations solely because they both start with A’s.
  15. I’m not arguing with you. Just trying to understand what you were saying since you weren’t clear in your original post. Calm down.
  16. You said different situation. The situation is exactly the same, it’s just the people involved that are different.
  17. @MorningNews Long tenured anchor Leaving for competing station Beloved by viewers Not sure how it was different, and it obviously made sense to pull her from anchoring, but station management should’ve let her give a goodbye.
  18. WABC took Lori Stokes off the air but let her say goodbye in the last 10 minutes of the morning newscast.
  19. And today as well. Danny Freeman handled the 11am yesterday. On a related note, Bill must be losing it. Yesterday he referred to Katie (who was filling in for Sheila) as Sheila. Today he referred to Frances as Rosemary.
  20. Odd anchor pairs today: Jackie anchored with Johnny Archer at 4, but Jim was solo at 5 and 6 (and I presume 7). Jackie was back with Jim at 11.
  21. Sone odd anchoring fill ins: Natasha has been filling in in the morning and at 9am alongside Janelle while Jim’s been in the UK on assignment. Janelle’s been soloing at noon. Siafa and Ukee co-anchored together at 4 and 5 today. Just seems odd that they wouldn’t send Siafa to morning to fill in and keep Natasha in evening to fill in. Also still perplexed they haven’t handed off the noon to the 4pm team. Earlier this week, Jessica was subbing for Natasha, there’s no reason Siafa couldn’t have handled the noon.
  22. Is there any evidence that they are adopting these names? Can they not use both their current names and the CBS NEWS (CITY NAME) concurrently. Use the current names for the traditional newscasts and the city name ones for digital/streaming/online and non-traditional newscasts like the ones on the sister stations.
  23. Who does maria saavedra Anchor the 4pm with? Maybe her and Brad can helm 11am and 4pm?
  24. Don’t they already have 6 meteorologists? I took this as Ed and Robb will be splitting weather duties at 11am.
