  1. They went to commercial after Sunny and Ana were pulled on air. The previous commenter was suggesting they could have pulled Sunny and Ana during a commercial break and returned with just Joy and Sara. Don't know exactly what the show's processes were but I assume the Secret Service was calling at least some of the shots at that point.
  2. Chris Cuomo accused of (and allegedly admitted to, in a roundabout way) sexual assault while he was at ABC: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/09/24/opinion/chris-cuomo-cnn.html
  3. Correct. Stephanopoulos notified three separate ABC News executives about the allegations when he learned of them.
  4. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/tv/tv-news/the-view-taking-a-little-time-to-replace-meghan-mccain-gretchen-carlson-condoleezza-rice-among-guest-hosts-1235005114/
  5. https://www.wsj.com/articles/abc-news-president-calls-for-independent-probe-of-sexual-assault-allegations-11629989516?cx_testId=3&cx_testVariant=cx_2&cx_artPos=0&mod=WTRN#cxrecs_s
  6. The anchors at WNYW control the teleprompter themselves with a remote, which would probably screw with anyone's delivery.
  7. Phil Lipof, who'd been freelance reporting for WNBC, has joined ABC News.
  8. Most recently, he was freelancing as a reporter for WNBC. Before that, he was anchoring weeknight broadcasts in Boston. And, prior to that, anchoring weekend mornings at WABC.
  9. Vaccination aside, could be a talent decision. Based on recent Facebook posts, would not be surprised if Bill Ritter, who is vaccinated, decided he is not willing to sit side by side yet.
  10. He doesn't take Fridays off as though they're vacation days. He's employed to work four days a week.
  11. I don't believe WABC has in-house weather producers, no. They basically outsource the function of a weather producer to AccuWeather. Sometimes (or more than sometimes?) Jeff or Amy work during the week behind the scenes while Sam or Lee are on the air.
  12. The problem, unfortunately, is that what you were hoping for doesn't attract eyeballs. The latter does.
  13. You’re right. I stand corrected.
  14. Right. I don't think you will see most stations return to having anchors sit shoulder to shoulder until the CDC says it's okay for vaccinated people of different households to be indoors, unmasked, within 6 feet from each other. They only just last week said vaccinated people could be unmasked if outdoors and 6 ft apart, so I imagine it will be some time.
  15. Stephanopoulos and Roberts will both serve as Jeopardy guest hosts, announced today.
