  1. Bob Barry Jr., the sports director at Oklahoma City's KFOR, has sadly died in a car accident near his home this afternoon. http://kfor.com/2015/06/20/our-hearts-are-broken-at-the-tragic-loss-of-our-friend-bob-barry-jr/
  2. He is the 4pm anchor.
  3. You're correct. WRC's made an official post on their site. http://www.nbcwashington.com/on-air/Jim-Vance-Anchor-News4-WRC-Jim-Handly-300961461.html (beaten to it by a WTOP article, but whatever...)
  4. The Jacksonville Business Journal is reporting that former WTEV/WAWS anchor Mark Spain has found a new job. Spain's new job is not going to be in Florida, and he is supposedly anchoring the evening news. He will not announce his new position until his new station makes a new announcement. http://www.bizjournals.com/jacksonville/news/2015/03/25/mark-spain-leaving-jacksonville-to-return-to.html
  5. Some sad news coming from El Paso. 5 and 9pm news anchor Erika Castillo has been diagnosed with cancer. Castillo came back to the EP/LC market replacing Hema Mullur.
  6. They've been airing a weekend morning newscast since COX took over.
  7. BREAKING NEWS: Legendary Detroit anchorman Bill Bonds has passed away today. He suffered a heart attack. http://www.wxyz.com/news/bill-bonds-iconic-former-channel-7-action-news-anchorman-has-died
  8. It's about time! I'm thinking they'll go borderlandmatters.com
  9. KTSM's Noreen Jaramillo will be anchoring her last morning newscast today. She will remain in El Paso with family.
  10. He's been doing VOs for KFOX since the station launched newscasts in '95, and they still used him during his sabbatical a few years back. Don't think they'll be getting rid of him for a little while...
  11. And there goes Mike Barz. WFOX/WJAX are bringing in longtime First Coast News anchor Phil Amato to take Barz's place. Amato debuts next Monday morning. http://www.actionnewsjax.com/news/news/local/anchor-phil-amato-joins-cbs47-and-fox30-action-new/nht4m/
  12. KFOX is debuting a new set and new graphics October 15 (from Erika Castillo's Facebook page) A set preview can be seen .
  13. WCIA anchor Dave Benton announced on-air that he had been diagnosed with cancer and only has four to six months to live. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6GISkt7B5Y
  14. Scary day for two San Francisco TV reporters. KTVU's Cara Liu was beaten by a female Sunday afternoon while covering a story at the flea market. Station sources say she's okay. Also, KRON reporter Jackie Sissel was robbed of their equipment this morning in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. Sissel was getting ready to do a story under an I-280 overpass. Two men with bandannas were the ones who robbed the reporter. http://www.mediabistro.com/tvspy/one-sf-bay-area-reporter-beaten-another-robbed-in-two-separate-incidents_b128132
