  1. I was wondering the same thing. It is eerie, because there is nothing online, mainly FB posts from viewers mentioning how he has just disappeared from everything WTTG. Very interesting. Could have gotten another position at another station, and under a Non-Compete, or at least that what I am assuming.
  2. WCNC's Fred Shropshire is headed to WCAU: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=pfbid02Gv9rNgPN8QQd2wsaveMe4DHFfi5p7A3ZAGrpQBHwrMiw77vQpArzRTxjGCA8DGBXl&id=100064761934185&mibextid=Nif5oz
  3. Yup, 2010 with the HD upgrade IIRC. When I saw this I was thinking, they just got a new set, but it was definitely almost 13 years ago! Time flies!
  4. Ah okay, I was wondering where she was! She had been on WSOC for the last few years. Curious to see who her replacement is here in Charlotte. Congrats to her!
  5. Me either - Very detailed - Even down to the explanation of the different colors and when the colors are used. Lol! I thought it was fascinating and hilarious at the same time. I love to see the excitement at the station!
  6. Definitely well deserved, and I think its a first in the market, First Black Woman Chief Meteorologist, she would've been my choice as well! I am surprised, because I definitely thought Bryan Van DeGraff and Steve Rudin (Who has been at WUSA, WTTG, and now WJLA) would've had the position!
  7. Yes, she has really grown up on WSOC, with all of her life changes and everyhing. Allison has been such a mainstay with WSOC. This was bittersweet news, and I am actually kind of sad to see her leave the airwaves. I am interested, on the flip side, who will take her role. She was originally on at 5:30 and 10, but in recent years, she has been backup for 5/6/7/10/11, and anchor at noon (with John Paul before he went to WPVI) and from time to time the Mornings. I am interested to see who fills that role.
  8. I agree, I feel like the space underneath the L3 might be for a ticker? Open is definitely a downgrade, this almost looks like an in-house open like WJET.
  9. Interesting read. Being in the market, I hear it, and especially the signature, as soon as I heard it, I heard a hint of Aerial (Which I am actually a fan of - lol). I definitely knew from that point it was a Stephen Arnold theme. But I also agree, it is kind of somber to me. I am interested to see what the future cuts would sound like.
  10. Or maybe to WSOC with their 10 year old graphics! LOL! (To be fair, there has been a few updates here and there, but a brand new package would be nice to see!)
  11. Well - WJAX/WFOX has had the "Scripps" gfx package for years as well - And the logo - I am glad someone else noticed Google Play. It is definitely different.
  12. Lol I was going to say, it is definitely still being produced, I still (sad to say) watch it every weekend on VH1! Lol this weekend, one episode, everyone was masked up (post 2020).
  13. I know I am super late, but I just saw this! I wonder if they are paying, although I have noticed, it always says "First Alert" and then Weather Center, or Forecast, etc. I wonder if they are using a loophole by not ever saying "First Alert Weather". Just very interesting, never knew it was trademarked!
  14. Former WJLA/CNN and current WRC Anchor Leon Harris was arrested after being charged with DUI: https://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/leon-harris-involved-in-car-crash-charged-with-dui/2955116/
  15. I can't even begin - I am still confused on air because you hear all three (!) newscast titles on the station now. FOX 46 News, Queen City News is coming, and FOX Charlotte News Tonight at 10. I am so lost, because the open and the anchors say FOX 46 News at 10, but its advertised as FOX Charlotte News. This is a mess. Not to mention Queen City News (IMO) is a stupid name for a viewing area that encompasses two states. I was looking forward to seeing a nice refresh for 46, but this is garbage. I know part of it is the de-emphasis on "FOX" but, honestly, why not just keep the same branding, or even better, stick with FOX Charlotte branding, it was WCCB previous branding, might as well use it. I do not see this sitting well in the market.I'm sure by May there will be three more names for the newscast.
  16. Also in Charlotte over at WSOC, Demany Lewis and John Paul switch roles, with Demany Lewis taking Mornings, and John Paul taking Midday and 7pm. No word on the replacement of Brittney Johnson in the Mornings just yet.
  17. Not bad, I agree the teal and gotham at the beginning was a little strange, but I like it. Personally, I would be fine if WSOC decided to pick it up at this point. (Going on 9 years already.) But I digress.
  18. Lol @ Random Flying Box. I believe that is a sideview of the "10" from the logo. flying past.
  19. I don't know if this one has been mentioned yet. Interesting take on Tegna graphics.
  20. Speculation is over. Shawn Yancy to WRC evenings. https://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/shawn-yancy-joins-nbc4-washington-as-evening-anchor/2499232/
  21. Well - I mean, with Bruce Johnson retiring....and her and Lesli Foster being close friends as well, I could see her there.
  22. Former WTTG Anchor going to WUSA Morning starting 11/9: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10224674913760126&set=a.1129848846291&type=3
  23. Yes, something is definitely going on. In the market, for our African American community, (specially us Millennials) WTTG was the go-to largely thanks to her and Allison. WTTG is going to hurt from this definitely! I wonder if we will get more insight soon.
  24. A friend of Allison's said something about how Allison was pushed out, for younger talent, and how management prefers Holly Morris, and Erin (Don't know the last name), etc. It was a lot in the post. I'm sure there will be more insight on it in the coming days.
  25. And not without controversy:
