Weekend Anchor

Weekend Anchor (3/8)



  1. I remember back in 90s Carole Simpson would Anchor World News On the Weekends from Washington. I think Each Network should have a least one Newscast originating from DC; there’s too much News in that City to not have a Flagship Newscast.
  2. He maybe done in LA, But I am sure he’ll be able to find a job in another Top 10 market. Local Management at KTLA will more than likely change after this as well. The way all this transpired is textbook “How Not to handle Personnel Issues.”
  3. Right, You would think CBS executives would want someone young and vibrant to go against Lindsey Davis and Tom Llamas at that hour. Instead…., Just goes to show CBS doesn’t have the leadership or decision makers needed to be competitive in today’s news business. It’s almost as if they’ve conceded to being in 3rd place forever.
  4. It’s a Friday in Late August; Norah like David Muir is on…… you guessed it Vacation.
  5. It’s just a matter of time before Brittany is named a Permanent Weekday Meteorologist.
  6. Honestly it was better when it was the WGN Superstation. Simulcast the WGN Morning News and 9pm news again. Run Blue Bloods and ITHOTN reruns during the day. I’m sure that’ll get them higher ratings than what they’re getting now. Problem solved. Money & dignity saved.
  7. Chuck and Sue were WNBC; and NYC Broadcast Legends. Ever since that duo was broken up; WNBC hasn’t been the same. Some say it’s Karma, But they just haven’t found the right anchor teams with that unmatched chemistry that Chuck, Sue, Len, Al Roker later (Janice Huff) had that made them #1.
  8. NewsNation could’ve easily simulcasted WGN’s live coverage. WGN is one of the top news stations in the country, why not tap into that resource? MSNBC and NBC news now utilized WMAQ (NBC5) effectively. ABC News Had WLS’ (ABC7) coverage. CBS had WBBM (CBS2) Where was NN???? Granted it was July 4th & we realize that staffing numbers were low, but This story literally is in your backyard!! and you are still MIA as far as news coverage! NN the writing is on the wall…
  9. Sidebar: CNN’s “New Day” is in the dumps when it comes to ratings. I wonder how much longer until changes are made.
  10. No doubt the Networks saw the ratings for Thursday Night’s broadcast and decided to air Mondays hearing as well. It’ll be interesting to see the ratings for tomorrow’s coverage given the fact that it will be during the morning & a Monday AM at that. Maybe WNYW will decide to broadcast the hearings after Good Day NY
  11. Many FOX Affiliates will probably be in regular programming; although I suspect affiliates such as WTTG in Washington, D.C. may just provide their own coverage of the event.
  12. The revolving door continues at CBS 3. That station is used as a pit stop for Anchors/Reporters headed to National or NY, LA, Chicago. Not saying that’s the case with Lauren, but there are a lot of KYW alumni on National Networks.
  13. I can see that. He never looked happy while anchoring. His chemistry with his co anchor just wasn’t there. Im sure he’ll land on his feet somewhere else soon.
  14. I wish CNN would go back it’s Roots in Atlanta and back to the hard news format that made it a household name. When CNN moved majority of its shows to NY that was the beginning of the decline. It’s probably wishful thinking, But I would love to hear Live from “The CNN World Headquarters in Atlanta”
  15. I’ve felt WABC’s visual on air presentation feels very medium market. They could learn a thing or two from their sister station WPVI in Philly about in house graphic creation. KABC has the best on air visuals of any of the O&O’s Imo
