  1. He won’t return to the weekend morning show but he will continue reporting through mid March. Unclear if the weekend morning show will do highlight reel or acknowledgement of his departure.
  2. We're talking about this two-story mini city?
  3. First, the CBS producers who posted the clip of that line of questioning should have known better. It was a small line of questioning, part of a much larger interview about Bryant and his life, and without context reduced an otherwise-good interview to a single moment. Bryant was accused of sexual assault, and in this Me Too era, a neutral look-back on his life would be incomplete without at least an acknowledgement. In the scope of the entire interview, that's all it was. But CBS chose to go for click bate, and it blew up in their face. Second, I expect you'd know better than to post something so dismissive. Gayle worked as a reporter and anchor at WUSA, WJZ, WDAF, and WFSB, long before joining CBS. She's qualified.
  4. Thought this warranted its own thread. ABC News announced big changes to its ABC News Live streaming platform, including new programming anchored by broadcast talent Tom Llamas and Linsey Davis. See: https://abcnewspr.tumblr.com/post/190423948366/americas-1-streaming-news-channel-kicks-off-all and and a preview of a new set (which may or may not be a product of the major TV3 renovations?):
  5. I like the flat graphics as they're used here. Certainly not used to seeing ABC use orange, though.
  6. Strahan spoke to NYT about, among other things, his botched exit from LIVE. He clearly thinks Kelly was out of line. https://pagesix.com/2020/01/29/michael-strahan-on-past-tv-gigs-i-didnt-know-i-was-supposed-to-be-a-sidekick/
  7. Matt Gutman has been suspended by ABC News for erroneous reporting during the live helicopter crash special report. He initially reported all four of the Bryant children were killed in the crash; he later issued a correction on air.
  8. Abby Huntsman is leaving The View to work on her father’s campaign for governor in Utah. Friday is her last day.
  9. Consistent with rumblings that the entire floor is undergoing major construction.
  10. I don’t think props are in order, personally. CBS EN covered it for 10+ minutes of the 30 minute broadcast. How many times can you say ‘Iranian rockets struck an air base with US troops’ over and over again? That’s all that was known at the time of broadcast; anything more was speculation. If WNT carried the story for more than a third of the broadcast, it is consistent with its trend of leveraging the urgency of the news. Also, CBS and NBC immediately followed their evening newscasts with special reports, while ABC is airing normal programming.
  11. This Week is being anchored from the Times Square GMA set.
  12. Sonia Rincon of 1010 WINS will be reporting for Eyewitness News "over the next several days," according to NJ Burkett. I suspect she's filling the Andy Field holiday coverage role.
  13. Pleased to see they are replacing him. I thought they might choose to only have one investigative reporter, which would have been a disservice to the community.
  14. You don't think the news networks should carry the hearings of the impeachment of the President of the United States?
  15. During the Nixon era, PBS re-broadcasted the impeachment hearings during primetime, and attracted wild viewership. There have been calls for PBS to do the same now, but so far they've indicated no plans to do so. https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2019/11/11/bill-moyers-impeachment-pbs-broadcast-trump-nixon/
