  1. This was an interesting read by FOX NEWS discussing the Today Show. The only thing I agree with was the Ann Curry situation. Ann Curry and Matt Lauer had zero chemistry together hosting Today but I was one of the few that dipped out Once Ann was canned. The optics of her being fired from her dream job and becoming the "Today Anchor At-Large" was not very becoming of America's Family LOL. The article discusses how ratings are the "lowest" it has ever been in 30 years. Reaching below 3 millions viewers. However, ratings are down as a whole on all Morning Shows. I believe part of the reason why the ratings are down because, the news is depressing, over sensationalized and they never really get down to the facts. I do think the Olympics might help some in the coming weeks. What are you all thoughts?
  2. I knew she would end up leaving especially after all the controversy. I wish her the best of luck at NBC Sports!
  3. It seemed like they just got a refresh in 2018! WMBF desperately needs an updated set…it’s almost 13 years since they gotten anything!
  4. You are correct that mornings are "deeply coveted and would be the pinnacle of most broadcast careers." But after roughly 17 years at waking up that early, it becomes taxing and draining. I didn't last 5 LOL! However, if there was an opportunity for her to have an evening shift, that would've been great. (I'm not saying really to displaced anyone but her at either 4 and 5 probably would have been nice. Also knowing people who know Lori personally, is one of the reasons why she left.
  5. Good for Lori! Hopefully this turns thing around for the Fox station. I WABC did her a disservice not promoting her to evenings which I felt she's was naturally suited for.
  6. Shiba Russell has a special announcement that she’ll share tomorrow
  7. Well this was pretty quiet because I don’t even remember hearing they are getting a new building. This is from Jim Lokay page.
  8. Here’s a video https://youtu.be/-MS4G812uBo
  9. After 49 years of sporting the gap, Michael decided to get his teeth done and close it. I’m so surprised he did it!
  10. WOW that was fast. I just thought he would've been suspended a few days and then back to business as usual.
  11. That was my conclusion as well. Even though it was a "harmless" joke, there could have been some comments or actions taken place behind the scenes we are not privy to yet. Even if we disagree with the suspension, I would not go into attack mode on Cheryl. Technically it wasn't our business to began with.
  12. All I am going to say is that George should have saw this coming a while ago. Even if George was the better "serious" anchor, it wasn't realistic for him to continue being their "Chief Anchor," when David, (like him or not) is number 1 in the evening. It was rather confusing how he would come in late in the evening when David was already their whenever breaking news occurred. I could see the last few months David did not like taking a back seat during breaking news to George. Also, I do find it curious what rival network would he gone??? I would've advise him take a look at the careers of Josh Elliott, Sam Champion, and Bill Weir. George is good but I don't know if he would fair out like Chris Cuomo (in a sticky situation now), Jake Tapper and Kate Snow which took some time for them to pop at their respective networks. Lowkey now I wondering did this also weighed in as to why Tom Llamas left?!?
  13. Well congratulations to her! I missed watching her on tv. I think CBS did her a disservice when they got rid of her in 2010. She was one of their better anchors on the now defunct The Early Show.
  14. Just a little fun fact via Twitter @RetroNewsNow
  15. Well good for them! I haven't watched Weekend Today since Shenielle Jones left. CBS This Morning Saturday is very enjoyable and informative to watch. Out of all the morning shows, I feel like they are thriving the most since they cut out all the entertainment/lifestyle section of the morning broadcast. If you watch the weekday counterparts, GMA and Today seems to be struggling to fill up their broadcast.
  16. Two excellent choices! Congrats to both!
  17. WPDE ABC 15 received the updated graphics this morning.
  18. I hate the new desk that debut this morning.
  19. I believe so! Wolf has not been favorable for a while now and I may be reading too much into this but the back and forth with Nancy Pelosi turned some viewers off as well. His days seem numbered. Also this would have been the perfect opportunity to promote Jeremy Diamond. I have been very impressed with his reporting this past year.
  20. WBTW has hired Annette Peagler , to co-anchor the 5:30 and 11 p.m. newscasts and sole anchor the 10 p.m. newscast on WFXB. She replaces Nicole Boone who has retire from the anchor desk and now the Special Events Anchor. This is one hire that I am exited to see! The last African American woman to anchor the weeknight evening news at WBTW (Vanessa Hill) left in 1994. Annette starts in a couple of weeks.
  21. I was wishing they would name the show Strahan, Sara & Palmer!!
  22. Both WMBF and WPDE could go for an update! WMBF set is coming up on 11 years and WPDE set is coming up on 9 ( two refreshes in 2015 and 2018).
  23. At this point CBS just need to be content with their ratings. Still can’t believe this is the 13th anchor change in 20 years. CBS O&O stations in general are having this problem of low ratings and turnovers with the exception of WCCO and KDKA (I believe). Sidenote: Brad Edwards looks more like a weatherman with that salt and pepper hair ..ie Dallas Raines.
  24. Thank God! That 11 pm experiment was awful. In a market like Atlanta, a traditional newscast works best especially in the evening.
