  1. The switch to The CW had some technical issues last night. A test card came on for a few minutes at 8pm and some of the bumpers were cut off or repeating
  2. It looks like Bob Brooks is heading to Newsmax
  3. I do like that they moved the clock and the program title back to the right side. They should have kept the new headline ticker instead of going back to the old scroll.
  4. So I am guessing PHL morning news is done when The CW takes over?
  5. I do hope they keep the flipping ticker. As for the rest of the graphics, I did not like the placement of the show’s name above the lower third and the clock on the left instead of under the CNN bug.
  6. Nexstar Media Group said stations it owns in Philadelphia, San Francisco and Tampa, Florida, will become affiliates of The CW starting September 1. https://www.nexttv.com/news/three-nexstar-stations-adding-cw-affiliations-on-september-1
  7. PHL17 will become The CW this fall. I wonder what that means for Action News at 10? https://www.nexttv.com/news/three-nexstar-stations-adding-cw-affiliations-on-september-1
  8. I’m guessing he either leaves TV or moves to one of the stations in D.C. or Baltimore. It sounds like the move happened because his husband got a new job down there. Steve definitely would have stayed at NBC10 much longer since he filled in the most and did a lot of the severe weather coverage.
  9. I wonder if Bilo wanted to lighten up her schedule a bit and spend more time with family? She’s been there since 2011 and has been chief since Kathy Orr was let go.
  10. A 9 a.m. newscast is being launched on September 12, according to this article
  11. I'm sure most affiliates will fill the slot with local news if they don't already have news on at 10:00. Philly had a 10pm newscast on MyNetworkTV, which was run by NBC until 2012.
  12. They may be getting new graphics sometime this fall https://www.newscaststudio.com/2022/07/12/cbs-miami-next-weather/
  13. The new set is debuting TODAY (7/18) at NOON, according to Jim Donovan.
  14. 3 could really use a new meteorologist or two. Andrew Baglini has been filling in since the weekend and he seems like a good fit. I wouldn’t mind if he stayed.
  15. Lauren Casey is now leaving. Her last newscast was last night
  16. Brandon Goldner is joing CBS3 from WCNC in North Carolina. https://twitter.com/BrandonWCNC/status/1509999585342722055
  17. Jim Donovan announced on Facebook this morning that the studio is being revamped. They’ll be anchoring from the newsroom for months.
  18. Sounds like Brian Taff will not be Jim's replacement. There is someone waiting in the wings though. I guess they will announce it tonight or tomorrow.
  19. Another new reporter coming to NBC10 in 2022 https://twitter.com/k_hua/status/1470425979457871879?s=20
  20. Chandler Lutz is coming back to CBS3 on Monday https://twitter.com/chandlerlutztv/status/1469293207615946766?s=21
  21. CBS Philly has the video on their YouTube
  22. This is reminding me more of a radio broadcast than a TV broadcast. It sounds like something you would hear on KYW News Radio. I know people have short attention spans, but this seems really rushed and unnecessary.
  23. Jessica Boyington was doing traffic this morning on Action News.
  24. 6ABC coverage of the tornadoes and flash flooding on September 1, 2021
