    In Memoriam

    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.

    In Memoriam

    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
  15. Why would they demote Harper to a reporter? Unless he asked to be a reporter, I think something fishy is going on...
  16. WDIV has debuted their new logo... And to be honest, they should've stuck with their old logo.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WE0DUkZeCDE
  17. Don't think so. That means KDBC either getting it's own team or they're sharing with KFOX. KDBC has been needing a new logo and set. They've been using the previous WHAS graphics and News Matrix since 2009 (when the LMA with ComCorp began). Also makes you wonder what will happen with Bettes and if KTSM will keep him or let him go.
  18. Sounds like the "Gaughan Gage" used by WJXT's John Gaughan... 1-10.
  19. Jack Williams announced plans to step away from anchoring full-time at WBZ. He will be staying on board with the station with his Wednesday's Child reports. http://boston.cbslocal.com/2014/08/18/jack-williams-announces-plans-to-step-away-from-full-time-news-anchoring-at-wbz-tv/
  20. I don't think anyone's selling up in the El Paso market unless NP&G puts KVIA on the block
  21. If you look close, there's a heart in the middle of the state... Gannett Loves Texas?
  22. First Coast News anchor Phil Amato has left the duopoly. According to the station's GM, he resigned from the station. http://jacksonville.com/business/2014-07-28/story/news-anchor-phil-amato-leaves-first-coast-news
  23. Former KUSA traffic reporter has been flying around the world for the past few weeks and recently stopped at the Australian Channel 9's Today Show for an interview. http://www.jump-in.com.au/show/today/videos/3661627397001/
  24. WTEV/WAWS have finally switched over to the Cox website design. http://www.actionnewsjax.com/
