  1. It’s official. Today is Lori’s last day. She will be joining the 5pm and 10pm news, in addition to retaining the 6pm, starting Monday.
  2. Lori Stokes leaving Good Day? If RadarOnline, a gossip website, is to be believed, the answer is yes: https://radaronline.com/p/lori-stokes-good-day-new-york-no-longer-co-host-morning-show-rosanna-scotto/ With Dari Alexander out, it seems logical that Lori could slip into the 10pm slot, and maybe the 5pm, although maybe not since she already does 6pm.
  3. It is strange, though, that WNBC has a solo anchor, Adam Kuperstein, at 11am and 5pm. Less strange at 11, but not too common to have a solo anchor at 5pm for an hour long newscast.
  4. There’s a commercial airing with clips from vintage 10pm newscasts, trying to show that the current Fox 5 is similar to the Fox 5 of years ago. Sadly, that’s not the case, and I doubt we’ll see any format changes.
  5. Fox 5 has changed the branding of its evening newscasts. Instead of “Fox 5 News at [Time],” they are calling the newscasts “The [Time] O’Clock News.” This is clearly an homage to the longstanding “The 10 O’Clock News” and somewhat follows the pattern of other newscasts with their own name, like “Good Day New York” and “The Noon.” What do we think? I don’t know if I like dropping the “Fox 5” part from the title.
  6. He has been on the CBS Evening News a few times over the past two weeks (I think from the weather barn in his home). Probably just time off at WCBS for the holidays. I would not read too much into it. Kristine and Maurice have been off for two weeks, too.
  7. She's been gone from WCBS for three or four years at this point. From WCBS, she moved to Fios 1, where she hosted Restaurant Hunter until Fios 1 shut down a year ago.
  8. Nice to see that she was able to secure a position at NBC News and MSNBC. Valerie left WCBS to join NBC to anchor a program on the now-defunct Quibi mobile service. As an aside, per the Washington Post, there is a COVID outbreak at the CBS Broadcast Center, which seems to be centered at WCBS-TV. Of course, most people will remember that there was an outbreak in March, at the beginning of the COVID crisis, at which time KCBS-TV produced WCBS-TV's newscasts for a few days. https://www.washingtonpost.com/media/2020/11/20/cbs-headquarters-reports-15-coronavirus-cases/
  9. Looks like he’s reporting only, at least to start:
  10. Chris and Mary were back together in Studio 46 as of late, but starting on Monday, Mary has been home and Chris is solo in Studio 46 (Elise Finch has been at home since the pandemic started, with her home chromakey). Chris tweeted that Mary traveled out of state last week and is self-quarantining, per New York State guidelines:
  11. WCBS had extensive coverage on Monday. See a story by Lisa Rozner that aired at 5:00, followed by genuine thoughts by Kristine Johnson and Dick Brennan (in for Maurice) here: https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2020/07/20/remembering-nina-kapur/ The same package aired at 6:00 that night, with comments from Dana Tyler thereafter. The video of Dana’s comments appears at the bottom of the story linked above. Lisa Rozner also reported another story yesterday, this one with more details about Nina’s passing, and facts about Revel: https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2020/07/21/revel-scooters-ne
  12. I agree. This definitely makes the station seem low budget. I also do not like how they’ve been using the secondary CBSN studio for noon and 6 weekdays with Dana Tyler, and for all weekend newscasts. It is unclear whether Dana is permanently at noon, or if Chris and Mary will return at some point. Andrea Grymes has been back from maternity leave for at least a month, if not more, but seems to only be reporting. It is unclear whether she will return to the anchor desk weekend mornings. Also, Cindy Hsu posted on her Facebook page recently that she will be having knee replacement surger
  13. An amazing accomplishment no matter what the field, but especially in television news, and especially at WCBS, which has historically had a lot of talent turnover. I hope they have a tribute to Dana tonight at 5 or 6. With Dana celebrating her 30th anniversary, Cindy Hsu is celebrating her 27th, also this month. Truly remarkable, given WCBS’s history.
  14. I agree with your take. Also, the real demotion for Muller was when he lost the 10:00 p.m. slot (almost two years ago, I believe) to Kori Chambers. When Muller returned to PIX from ABC, he was the main anchor at 5, 6, and 10:00 p.m. He was eventually replaced by Chambers at 5, but retained the 6 and 10. Then he lost the 10, leaving him with only a half hour at 6. It IS funny to me, though, that he’s anchoring the 4:30-7:00 a.m. slot, since he was the main morning anchor for years, dating back to the launch of the Morning News. Of course, he lost that slot and was replaced by the lat
  15. Read more closely. The person asked Craig two questions: if he was taking over the 6:00 p.m. news, and if Kala would be joining him. Craig’s reply, “afraid not,” could mean Kala’s not joining him, but it also might mean that he’s not going to be anchoring at 6:00 p.m. Correct me if I’m wrong, but I haven’t seen anything specifically stating that Craig will be anchoring at 6:00 p.m. We know John Muller is leaving the 6:00 p.m. for the 4:30-7:00 a.m. newscast, and we know Craig is moving to evenings. But we don’t know for sure that Craig will be anchoring. For all we know, he’s g
