  1. http://urbanhollywood411.com/2020/04/19/los-angeles-tv-news-crew-kidnapped-knifepoint-coronavirus/
  2. If that’s true, hope he’s back on the air soon.
  3. When KCBS/KCAL moved to Studio City, both stations had separate sets and studios. KCAL shares its studio with the Sports Central set. I’ve noticed for the past several weeks however, KCAL’s broadcasts are originating from the KCBS set and studio, and Sports Central has been broadcasting from the City National Bank plaza in downtown. Is CBS building a new set for KCAL, or are they using the studio for something else?
  4. I’m sure Brianna was just filling in or swapping shifts due to the holiday this week. As far as Phillip’s replacement, I hope to god it’s not Marc CR; he’s way too stiff. Brandi would be a better fit.
  5. ABC 7’s helicopter, Air7HD, was struck by a drone tonight while flying at approximately 1,100 feet above downtown. The crew landed safely and the LAPD is investigating. https://abc7.com/air7-hd-struck-by-drone-over-downtown-la-makes-precautionary-landing/5734727/
  6. Looks like Jovana Lara is off weekends and now back to co-anchoring weekdays at 11am https://www.facebook.com/1562824017273051/posts/2523455117876598?d=n&substory_index=0&sfns=mo https://www.facebook.com/1562824017273051/posts/2524065714482205?vh=e&d=n&sfns=mo
  7. The revolving door continued tonight with the departure of reporter/fill-in anchor/fill-in forecaster Crystal Cruz announcing tonight was her final night at the duopoly. She ended her live shot with a mic drop. So LA and so lame. https://mobile.twitter.com/CrystalCruzCBS/status/1197023560658632704
  8. Brianna Ruffalo is heading down the 5 from ABC30 in Fresno to KABC. Her on air debut will be sometime this month. Not sure which shows she’ll be on, but hoping she’ll immediately replace Alex Cheney on weekend mornings.
  9. I hope she’s salvo’s replacement. The girl whose been filling in, I forget her and at the moment, is a terrible anchor and has zero business being one in this market. As for the lack of an in-studio traffic anchor weekday mornings, that’s pretty ridiculous. I always watch KTLA in the mornings; they have a pretty comprehensive traffic report every 10 minutes or so with the husband and wife team of Mark Kono and Ginger Chan.
  10. You’re right and I’ve been kind of thinking about this. CBS just had him on a national platform, co-hosting The Talk literally days ago. If his contract was up in September, I’m sure CBS has been in talks with him. Maybe he was playing hardball, and they said ciao. Some folks who’ve recently left the duopoly have said CBS isn’t offering more money with contract extensions/renewals. Perhaps he’s already got a gig lined up and CBS knows; that’s the only circumstance I can see them cutting Peter off they way they did.
  11. According to FTVLive, CBS did this guy wrong https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/5/17/gone-in-la
  12. Dave was honored by the city council today and also announced that after 40 years of broadcasting, he’s retiring at the end of the May book. https://mobile.twitter.com/Patharveynews/status/1123422151686496256?s=20 https://losangeles.cbslocal.com/video/4075790-cbs2-political-reporter-dave-bryan-honored-by-la-city-council/
  13. You’re right, I’ve noticed their practice of placing day or two old stories on Facebook with zero updates from the original. I’ve tagged them in their own posts questioning them, but of course they don’t respond.
  14. Kurt prevailed in his lawsuit for breach of contract and age discrimination. Jury awarded him $4M. Represented by Gloria Allred. Tribune to appeal. https://deadline.com/2018/12/kurt-the-cyberguy-lawsuit-wins-ktla-tribune-media-gloria-allred-los-angeles-1202516256/
