  1. WWBT in Richmond also aired some form of a newscast however I couldn't tell if it was live or Memorex, seemed to be a basic check of headlines and quick WX rundown.
  2. As of 1:47a EDT, the NASCAR race is STILL on. I wonder how many NBC affiliates in EDT/CDT are actually planning a live newscast tonight and if they use the weekend PM crew or just have the morning crew anchor an abbreviated broadcast? WRC already said they aren't going to, interesting to hear from you guys watching if your NBC affiliate is going to go live this morning after the race.
  3. Came across this interview with Larry Stogner from the Raleigh News and Observer about his time at WTVD and their competition with WRAL. Very good interview, check it out.
  4. Jackie Hyland out at WRAL/FOX50 http://www.newsobserver.com/entertainment/tv/warm-tv-blog/article25472437.html
  5. I don't know how bad the reaction was for breaking in to the Cubbies game, but God forbid WRAL break into Bold & The Beautiful to cover a tornado warning. You'd think Greg Fishel slaughtered the family dog on the air with how shitty people get about the coverage.
  6. My thoughts and prayers to Bob's family as well as the KFOR family.
  7. Per a FB post from Steve Rudin, Jonathan will also anchor the 10pm show on News Channel 8. EDIT: I wonder what this means for Morris Jones?
  8. I wonder if that's where Fred Shropshire is headed?
  9. Heartbroken to pass this along to you guys, Steph Rochon from WTVR has passed after a courageous battle with cancer. http://wtvr.com/2015/06/03/goodbye-stephanie/
  10. WCIA's Dave Benton passed away after a remarkable battle with brain cancer. My thoughts and prayers are with his family as well as the folks at WCIA.
  11. Longtime WTVD ND Rob Elmore leaves for the same position at KABC. http://abc11.com/news/abc11-news-director-rob-elmore-heading-to-la/733375/
  12. Chris Hohmann updated his post to say Fred & Sheyenne Rodriguez (also a WTVD reporter) will be moving to Charlotte. No word on what station as of yet.
  13. Fred Shropshire announces his departure from WTVD effective Friday. No station/city announced publicly except that he will be a main anchor at "another station", which leads me to believe he'll be staying in the Triangle.
  14. WNCN is getting a lot of negative feedback for pre-empting the Caps-Flyers game this afternoon (being aired as part of Hockey Day in America) to air the funeral for the late Dean Smith. Strangely enough the game wasn't even delegated to 17.2, viewers were just told to watch the game online.
  15. WOWK/WVNS weekend meteorologist Kristin Ketchell announces via Facebook she'll be joining WNCN. Her last day at WOWK/WVNS is February 22nd. Former WOAY chief meteorologist Heidi Moore will replace Ketchell.
  16. What an amazing tribute to an incredible man. Was very nice to see Gov. McCrory on tonight to award Larry the Order of the Long Leaf Pine, which is NC's most prestigious award for a civilian.
  17. WTVD is paying tribute to Larry Stogner all next week during the 6 and a week from tonight, Larry will anchor his final newscast. Thanks for the past 40 years of company, Larry. You will be missed, godspeed my friend.
  18. More anchor shuffling at WNCN. This time weekend evening anchor Mike Gonzalez switches places with morning/11am anchor Phil Sanchez.
  19. When all is said and done, I think Dick along with Regis and Betty White will be the last three standing.
  20. Dick Goddard signs a new multi-year deal with WJW. http://www.cleveland.com/tv-blog/index.ssf/2014/12/dick_goddard_signs_new_multi-year_deal_with_channel_8.html
  21. Wow... Skip Waters, chief meteorologist at WCTI in Greenville NC passed away suddenly, he was 61. http://www.wcti12.com/news/skip-waters-19532014/29395128
  22. Longtime WRAL weatherman Bob DeBardelaben passed away Monday morning. http://www.wral.com/longtime-wral-weatherman-bob-debardelaben-dies/4555520/
  23. Pam Saulsby announces her firing from WNCN/Raleigh via Facebook. She's been with the station since September 2012 when she was unceremoniously fired from WRAL/FOX50 where she had spent 20 years as an anchor and reporter.
  24. WNCN Raleigh relaunches their weekend morning newscasts effective tomorrow 9am. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=10152678903549750
