Weekend Anchor

Weekend Anchor (3/8)



  1. Wendy is definitely an institution in the DMV area. She will be sorely missed. But viewers will get one more week of laughs and personality from Wendy. Next question who’s her replacement? Shawn Yancy? Eun Yang? Im sure within the next year or two Doreen Gentzler will scale back and/or retire as well. So that will leave another opening on NBC4 weeknight newscasts.
  2. Add to that Jerricka Duncan. The times I’ve watched her on CBS Mornings she’s really good. Definitely should be in the running if/when Gail decides to leave. She, Tony, & Nate work well together. The reason Saturday Mornings on CBS does well is because of the team they have in place.
  3. WCAU studios being in the headquarters of Comcast gives them easier access to the execs. Rockefeller Plaza is no longer the center of all things NBC; therefore the prominence of ‘CAU has risen. It is the 4th largest market (Philadelphia) so that shouldn’t be surprising. Of course WNBC is the East Coast “Flagship” and KNBC is it’s West Coast Counterpart. But WCAU is definitely at the top of the NBC O&O’s food chain. The money poured into the station would definitely make it a contender for “flagship” lite.
  4. Knowing how Fox operates they normally look to promote from their other O&Os ; so it’ll be interesting to see if they pick a younger male talent from within the station group to replace Lori on GDNY. They really don’t have anyone in-house who can sit next to Rosanna.
  5. Interesting since WRC is running an ad claiming to be #1 Most Watched Local News.
  6. The DC market deserves a much better ABC Affiliate than 4th rated Sinclair’s WJLA. They’re bottom dwelling in the market. Especially considering it competes against WRC. Sad what WJLA has become since the sale.
  7. Something tells me that someone is about to retire within the next year or two; or at the very least scale back their duties. Maybe Doreen is thinking of only doing the 6pm broadcast and relinquishing the 11pm show. In that case I could see Shawn being added at 11p. Or Pat & Shawn at 4p Wendy and Jim at 5p Leon and Doreen at 6p Doreen and Jim at 11p Most of WRC’s evening talent has been there 20-30+ years so it’s not out of the question that someone may retire soon.
  8. Will she being doing the weather at a station in LA?
  9. She hadn’t even been at KPRC one year. I wonder if ratings were a factor. Seems like she was given a raw deal. Maybe her co-anchor needed to be changed.
  10. I think a good idea would be to run the 6pm broadcast for 1hr like WRC In DC Then run Nightly News at 7pm.
  11. KYW is becoming WGCL’s big brother with the turnover rate. It’s a shame for such a Distinguished station such as KYW. Hopefully the new leadership will turn the station around.
  12. I wonder where Sharon will end up next??
  13. With Tamron Hall’s Talk show on ABC affiliates in the Top 10 markets hopefully it translates into rating success. With the ABC O&Os and now WSB carrying the show Things are starting off good for “Tamron”.
  14. Terrell did good on WNN. I can see him taking Kendis’ spot
  15. Wheel of fortune and Jeopardy are cash cows and ratings gold in many markets.
