  1. I don't think there is a thread for this anywhere, but I think it's an interesting topic. How many cable companies have their own news? Obviously Verizon just stopped producing FIOS1 News. Here in eastern PA, Blue Ridge Communications puts on News 13. They do hyper-local stories twice a night - no weekends. Here's a link to a story from last week with a video of the report: https://www.brctv13.com/news/local-news/25119-lucky-to-be-alive-slatington-man-survives-head-on-collision?fbclid=IwAR0WT4w3yuYQCagNs4WF4LhlUlv69_RPDH0hF4ZXnJ0X0pZt_rBSac39WLY Kind of low budget, although it is in HD, but the reporter just stands there staring at the camera without blinking!
  2. You should be able to adjust your DVR recording to start a few minutes early!
  3. That's the thing about Sarah. She's a great reporter AND anchor.
  4. Both Nydia and Tamala have fairly young kids (so does Sarah). So maybe their early morning / weekend hours work well for them. Sarah has at least a daughter, but she kept her noon / weekday evenight reporting duties even after having her, so maybe she's been able to make it work for her family-wise. Sarah is great and really does deserve the 5 PM slot. If I were her, I'd be pissed if one of the "newbies" got it over her (unless she didn't want it). In a situation like this, do these people have to wait for their contracts to end, possibly, before taking on a new role? Or would they just be amended.,
  5. 69 also stayed on straight through 6:45. Mark Shanaberger was at what I assume was the green screen, but he was able to press buttons on the screen and draw over the top of it -- since when can green screens do that?! WFMZ doesn't have their own radar, but the NWS radar seems to be able to do pretty much everything that 6's radar can do.
  6. I was a kid too but I still watched the news!
  7. Anita Brikman used to fill in a lot for various people. Didn't she anchor weekend mornings with Scott Palmer? And when Rick and Monica moved to 5 PM, Scott and Anita filled in for them until they got Matt and Sarah, then Tamala
  8. Wendy Davis seems to have more vacation days than any other anchor in the Delaware or Lehigh Valleys!
  9. Sara Haines and Strahan are both equally annoying and so I guess they would be good together. Sara's voice just grinds my gears for some reason.
  10. Last Friday Will Lewis was filling in for both. I don't understand why Jim & Melanie don't fill in when either Rob or Wendy is off. Although Jim did fill in with Wendy on election night last week. The fill in situations are so random and make zero sense.
  11. I just can't believe that people thought he was KIDNAPPED. What is wrong with people?? And, I don't think having Berks sports coverage with someone else is at all strange. It's so far from the regular news room and there's no way they could have the same team of people cover everything, especially including video footage. Berks County is huge.
  12. It's so very random. Sometimes Eve and/or Jaciel is ALONE for 4 hours - though has not happened I don't think since Eve returned. Sometimes Rob or Wendy is off and they anchor alone, sometimes they have a fill-in. Makes no sense to me. I prefer them together.
  13. I've always thought Sarah was really underutilized as an anchor, but she's also a great reporter. I think maybe they realize both. I remember being upset when they brought in Tamala Edwards from nowhere to anchor the morning show with Matt O'Donnell. Sarah and Matt were a great pair! Still miss that actually. I need to watch 6 more often again. I've gotten into a pattern of watching 69 (being from the Lehigh Valley) but it gets stale when they continue to report the same things over and over again.
