  1. In addition to the 4 p.m. newscast, WPIX is starting a weekly football themed show called "NY Blitz," which is scheduled to start this Sunday. I agree with @NYNewsCoverage with regards to who should anchor the new newscast. Shirley and Kala are great anchors, and Craig has been filling in for Kori. The idea of Tamsen and Kori doing 4, 5, 6, and 10 is overkill.
  2. Here is the link to the Comcast petition, which I found in this article on TVTechnology: https://ecfsapi.fcc.gov/file/10702278919219/2021.07.01 AS-FILED PUBLIC WPIX Petition for Declaratory Ruling.pdf The TVTechnology article is at: https://www.tvtechnology.com/news/comcast-tells-fcc-that-nextstar-is-violating-ownership-cap
  3. https://nypost.com/2020/01/11/wpix-cameraman-claims-he-was-fired-over-false-racism-accusations-from-muslim-anchor/ Now that I think about it, I wonder if this has something to do with her departure.
  4. I figured that she was gone. She had not been on the air in a few weeks.
  5. Nicole Tindiglia has been named the news director of WPIX, succeeding Vickie Burns. https://www.nexstar.tv/wpix-tv-names-nicole-tindiglia-as-news-director/
  6. Apparently. I saw the talent open a moment ago, and Kori Chambers is the new 10pm anchor. I looked for info on this change and could not find any.
  7. Former WCBS weatherman Jeff Berardelli is in for Mr. G on the news at 5.
  8. I am surprised that FOX 5 has not maintained a back up studio at MY 9 in Secaucus for emergencies like this.....Is it currently in use? Please let me know.
  9. The graphics, in my opinion, need to be changed overall, especially the opens.
  10. Well, that was fast! I was rooting for Rich Graziano to turn Channel 11 around. As for Greg Easterly, I hope he gets the PIX job full time, as I strongly believe that the next GM should come from WGN or KTLA.
  11. Well, Jim Watkins left WTNH here in Connecticut this past summer, but I seriously doubt that he would return to WPIX for anything less than primary anchor.
  12. I agree with what you have said, but I don't see WPIX joining the 11 p.m. news race. If anything, there may be plans to finally launch the midday and weekend morning newscasts, provided that Tribune really invests in Channel 11.
  13. I hope that Channel 11 intends to eventually give Kaity and Brenda the whole hour at 6 p.m., because they are deserving of more than 30 minutes. And Tamsen and John anchoring three newscasts makes no sense to me.
  14. Ann Mercogliano exits WPIX, is headed to WABC. http://tunedinnyc.com/2015/07/26/reporter-ann-mercogliano-exiting-wpix/
  15. Further information.... http://www.tvnewscheck.com/article/84877/wpix-names-amy-waldman-news-director
