  1. I was gonna say. If only there was a place, perhaps archived in the digital world, where all those videos would be compiled for later viewing. Oh well, I guess technology isn't there, yet. (https://abc7ny.com/careers/celebrating-eyewitness-news-anchor-diana-williams/5534500/)
  2. Of course it's a one-off...at least for now. Outside of the summer game show slate this Sunday night and the aforementioned Bachelor show, the only notable programming on ABC in the next week is the premiere of Dancing with the Stars this Monday. Most of the the rest of the fall shows debut the following week. I'm pretty sure that it won't last more than a week, but with the blackout expected to start this Friday night/Saturday morning, that Tuesday would only be day 4 of such an interruption. We'll see what happens for any remaining games after this, if this continues.
  3. Okay, follow me here, for a sec. By obtaining the CW, there was no more room for WLS newscasts on WCIU. The relationship between WGN and the CW soured because of sports pre-emptions. Consider all those things together, then throw out all logic, because ABC 7 is moving next Tuesday night's Cubs game (one of their last) to WCIU, knocking out whatever they're running that night. ABC 7 claims it's so they can air the Bachelor in Paradise finale, but I call bullshit. This surely has everything to do with their looming blackout on AT&T/DirecTV. This will be WCIU's first baseball broadcast in about 5 years, when WGN moved their overflow broadcasts from The U to My50. https://abc7chicago.com/sports/program-note-cubs-game-on-sept-17-to-air-on-cw26-bachelor-in-paradise-to-air-on-abc7/5534784/
  4. In addition to those moves, Dana Koslov and Megan Hickey get promotions. https://www.bizjournals.com/chicago/news/2019/09/11/cbs-owned-channel-2-moves-ryan-baker-from-sports.html

    Out & About

    Wait, what? Refresher, please.
  6. No reason why Megan wouldn't be. Matt Zahn has an online bio, so he's apparently in good position to succeed her. I'd imagine they'll look outside for a new 3rd, not a new lead.
  7. I'm not necessarily against this. Baker appeared to be a competent newsreader when he filled in over the summer, and exudes infinitely more personality than Mike Puccinelli. Mike's a pro's pro reporter, but bland as hell on the desk. If I were to guess, Audrina's new role will likely set her up as a CBSN Chicago anchor, post-morning show. As for the new traffic anchor, she came from California, and it looks like she's already enjoying her time here.
  8. NBC throwing it back, and MNF removing the unnecessary side performers and rap breaks.
  9. My God, this needs to come together for the primetime special next week.
  10. Who's your provider? My screen was shrunk down for the better part of an hour, as if the ticker was ready to appear, but it never did on my AT&T feed.
  11. It's not yellow, it's VENOM.
  12. I'm not about to say I love it, but I'm glad they blew it all up, and redesigned. The green will be the major gripe, but I actually don't mind it. While the scoreboard maintains the same template, I'm thrilled they cleaned up the mess of italics from the last few years. The fonts are a bit messy, but I can live with them. My biggest complaint is rhe use of that awful wide font to display the score, so poorly proportioned. That should be reserved for special graphics and the show logo, only. I still like it more than CBS.
  13. Seeing the Instagram stories from both Joe and Audrey, it appears to be a newscast. They may do some segments here and there that don't pass the smell test, I don't know, but that doesn't seem to be the main purpose. The open bills it as a newscast/news production. https://instagram.com/stories/joetoohey/2129286281652379769?igshid=14vjv7qkn5zaz
  14. Forget sets, graphics, or even the play on the field. The only big thing that really matters. All is right with the world.
