  1. 5 hours is a long time every morning.
  2. I think weather reports are much more relevant to people’s everyday lives for sure. I once thought it was unconventional to not have traffic reports but it is rather pointless especially in a place like NYC where there are millions of traffic patterns which makes traffic reports somewhat ineffective.
  3. Certainly not outraged here, I just don’t care much for the approach. It’s not so much that the interview isn’t live but more that I think it removes some of the authenticity of the show when the news interviews are recorded and then glaringly sliced and diced during the playback. I get why they do it for double and triple booked guests but the interviews in the show’s entire first hour follow this strategy regardless of if a guest is on another show which is what promoted my question. It’s not a big deal and others likely don’t even notice it.
  4. This seems like the more plausible explanation. I was familiar with the concept for instances where guests are booked simultaneously on the 3 network shows, but GMA takes the prerecorded route for interviews in the first hour regardless of if a guest is appearing elsewhere or not. Before moving to the east coast, I had always assumed that the interviews had just been edited for tape delayed airings but turns out it’s part of the live airing which is what prompted my curiosity. Interesting to understand why they do it the way they do. Though I think they could stand to clean up the
  5. A live television broadcast that literally opens the show pronouncing itself to be “live from Times Square” but then runs a bunch of prerecorded news interviews is weird. They don’t prerecord the second hour publicity focused interviews, they do record several of the first hour’s interviews which is supposed to be the more newsy portion of the show. This has been their practice even when there aren’t conflicts with 7am guests appearing on NBC or CBS.
  6. Amy is reporting from Antartica this week and next with an exciting lineup set to fill in on GMA3. Any guesses on who steps in on Friday?
  7. Not trying to be provocative but I’m kind of surprised at the love he’s getting here and on social media with some pleading for him to return to a nightly newscast. While a strong force at NBC he is, he’s tarnished his image as a trusted anchor in my opinion. Dude just made up lies and embellishments for two major stories during his time as the face of network news. The competition would be interesting but I hope people’s memories aren’t so short to forget that the man at worst lacks completely integrity and at best has incredibly poor judgment, two things that are critical to leading news and
  8. Wow. Imagine him at EN up against Lester? I imagine he’ll come with a hefty price tag for CBS and it’s a huge gamble to make him the face of the Cronkite network.
  9. Such a shame, Jovita had so much life ahead of her. Why do articles keep saying she left WSB earlier this year? I thought she was on medical leave and had been praying for her eventual return. RIP.
  10. Weekend Today suffers from being so disjointed these days. It’s always a toss up of when it’s airing, who’s anchoring and from where.
  11. Crazily Dan was even #1 the first few years into his stint after Cronkite retired. He fell to second and then third a few years after that and they’ve been firmly positioned there. I think the issue is more that she’s managed to do worse despite the costly investments on her behalf.
  12. Norah’s reputation has been widely reported over the last several years as being difficult to work with so I don’t think this is just someone bored and trying stir a hit piece up. However, I’ll believe it when I see it. It is interesting that a Business Insider piece reported something similar just last month. Where there’s smoke there’s fire…
  13. Savannah for as nice as she seems is just one of the weaker anchors in the show’s storied history imo.
  14. Could be that Jill doesn’t want the full-time gig.
  15. Does anyone know the reason GMA seems to prerecord so many of their first hour interviews? Whether it’s a medical expert or today’s William Shatner interview, it always seems to be prerecorded.
