  1. Jim is anchoring the 11PM news with Keith. Has this happened before? If it has, does it happen on occasion? This is a first for me seeing both of them anchoring a newscast together.
  2. I thought I was the only one. Something just didn't click when I watched her. Also, early in her time in Philly, I think I heard her refer to Center City as "Philly Metro".
  3. Spotted this Inquirer article on my FB feed and my jaw dropped. Meteorologist Tammie Souza out at NBC10
  4. A wonderful tribute by Jamie Apody remembering Gary Papa's 10th death anniversary yesterday. https://6abc.com/sports/10-years-since-i-said-goodbye-jamie-apody-remembers-gary-papa/5353144/ John Clark, along with Cecily, and Jim Gardner (I'm sure there's more but I follow them on Twitter) had Twitter posts too remembering Gary. https://twitter.com/JClarkNBCS/status/1141377244260130824?s=20
  5. I guess the succession plan in place for the past 15 years might not happen after all. Sad to see her go, but wishing her well in her new chapter. I only started watching Rick and Monica once they were in the 5PM, but I can imagine their pairing played a major role in shaping Philly TV news in the mornings.
  6. With Rosemary, she deserved to be promoted to a weekday newscast for some time now. I was hoping she or Denise would become Keith's co-anchor at 5 before they hired Erin. I'm not sure if she's been reporting in the 4-6 PM news block, but that was on my mind when Rosemary began anchoring the 11AM. I think the reason why Keith and Erin only anchor the 5 and not the 11AM newscasts is both contribute as reporters (I'm sure about Keith, but don't know about Erin) for the 11PM newscasts.
  7. I think this new set continues to exemplify 10's recent philosophy when it comes to their news set: simple and efficient. While it may look underwhelming in their first few newscasts, I look forward to see how they utilize the different parts of the new set.
  8. https://www.instagram.com/jessicaboyington/ https://www.instagram.com/stevesosnanbc/ So according to Jessica's InstaStory, this morning's newscast was either the last or second to last morning newscast from Bala. BTW, her and her producer post halftime (5:30 AM) InstaStories and it's always a good laugh... there's always singing, sometimes they show Bill unwilling to sing, and Vai goofing off from time to time. And Steve's InstaStory indicated that he's making his final few commutes to Bala.
  9. https://www.nbcphiladelphia.com/news/business/New-Comcast-Building-a-Gamechanger-for-NBC10-Telemundo-62-240860921.html This was from 2014, when plans of the move was revealed. It outlined the concerns of moving to Center City and the future of the old studio.
  10. [MEDIA=instagram]BmwHJ-XB8mz[/MEDIA] In the comments, Jim confirms that they're moving after Labor Day so Sep. 6 seems to be a real target date. If it's not the 6th, then it has to be at least in the first two weeks of September.
  11. Just watched the first newscast posted. Here are my takeaways: -I like the effort and intended purpose of the newscast, but the execution seems off. You can tell that they were going for a lighter feel with "all the information that you'll need" but there were just way too many people coming in and out of the newscast, with Ukee in the first block, and Jessica in the 2nd half hour, just to recap the headline. Natasha and Alexandria (I know Natasha is) are both more than capable of handling the news. -Part of the execution is if they are going with the lighter feel with information overload newscast, then I'm sending sports (with the Eagles) and HealthWatch are going to be major components of the newscast. Why not integrate Don and Stephanie in the newscast itself... Part of the reason (besides ratings) why 10's All That & More with Tracy back in 2006 did not work out was the program had a purpose when Cherie Bank was integrated with health news. But I think that was around the time she had her medical condition began to affect her too. -That's too much having Ukee and Jessica popping in the 4 PM newscast when they do 5, 6, 10, and 11 PM newscasts. -Is it just me or am I hearing them refer to the program as CBS3@4? Do they not want the program to have the Eyewitness News brand? -6 has had the 4 PM Newscast for 7 years now and I think they've perfected the balance between hard and soft news by now. 10 has been going hard news at 4 (especially with 20 minutes non-stop A Block) for at least 5 years now. With CBS3@4, I expect both to follow this... "you do you"
  12. Just throwing this out there... it's been 10 years since the Larry Mendte/Alycia Lane drama.
  13. Ultimately, I guess it depends on how stations prioritize their weekend newscasts now, compared to 15-20 years ago. 6 makes sense to have Walter and Sarah on Sundays, with 5PM (? not 100% sure), 6, 10 on PHL 17, and 11. 29 having Lucy and Ian on Sunday-Thursday makes more sense now, especially this fall with TNF on Fox. While writing this, I just remembered that Denise was paired with Chris Cato a few years ago and that pairing was great. It IS a good question why she has gone solo since Cato was moved to mornings.
  14. It's about time Rosemary was promoted to weekdays. I would have been perfectly fine if she was paired with Keith at 5 when they were searching for a co-anchor a few years ago. At least if either Vai or Tracy is off, Rosemary can easily sub for them, instead of moving one of the morning reporters to the anchor chair. By the way, 10's morning reporter depth is deep... I think they have 4 that work the morning on a regular basis. With the way weekend evening newscasts are constructed now, it makes sense to just have Denise doing it.
  15. I think HulkieD discussed this a few years ago, when 10 refreshed its set with the window video wall behind the desk. Yes, back in 2000, the set was a two-story, but I think elements of that set was removed by 2004, to make room for the massive Earthwatch set. From then, until the new HD set in 2008, the massive weather set was shown pretty extensively, even to the point where stand-up shots were sometimes done there. When the HD set was built, that massive weather set shrunk, and with the First Alert Weather walls addition a few years ago, that original weather space back in 2004, had been greatly reduced.
