  1. WBFF chief meteorologist Vytas Reid collapsed on the air during his forecast, expected to be okay. https://www.baltimoresun.com/news/weather/bs-md-fox-45-meteorologist-20181101-htmlstory.html?fbclid=IwAR1-i7157k5vk5mFJ9U6D7alNff4_SjxsYhizdZrvNalrY3u7Z6JZEAozVo
  2. I don't see the issue with it. WRC morning anchor Aaron Gilchrist has been going to NYC to do weekends on MSNBC for awhile now, which surprises me because I figured he could do that from the DC or Capitol Hill building.
  3. NBC News tells 1010 AM WINS that next week the 9am hour of TODAY will be hosted by "other TODAY co-anchors".
  4. I remember watching him at the hell hole of WOAY, glad I'm able to see him again.
  5. Per FTVLive, former WTTG weekend morning co-anchor Annie Yu will soon be named weekday morning co-anchor across town at WUSA, replacing Jan Jeffcoat. I'm happy for her, she's long since deserved a weekday anchoring gig.
  6. I noticed that WRC is starting their Saturday morning newscast at 5:30am now. Not sure if this will extend to Sunday (I've set my DVR just in case) or if this is some bizarre one-off appearance at that time. Previously they aired a week in review show called News 4 This Week.
  7. That's a name I haven't heard in years, I hadn't heard anything about him since his second go-around at WCCB.
  8. Former WRC meterologist Clay Anderson was back at the station this morning filling-in for the first time since 2007. They had Somara Theodore back last night as well.
  9. Reminds me of a time I was in Charlotte and there was a sign on 77 for "Indepednence Blvd".
  10. WTVR is debuting their new "Storm Rider 6" truck today, are any other Tribune stations using one of these?
  11. [MEDIA=twitter]1032628105087737856[/MEDIA] The great Bruce Johnson is CANCER FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  12. WRAL morning/noon co-anchor Jeff Hogan is in a Wilmington NC-area hospital recovering from serious injuries he recieved while body surfing at Wrightsville Beach. Hogan recently joined WRAL from WBNS to replace Bill Leslie who recently retired. https://www.wral.com/wral-anchor-injured-in-beach-mishap/17733142/
  13. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=2350047018357454 This picture says it all. So happy to hear some good news about Bruce Johnson.
  14. WITN's original facilities in Chocowinty NC will be demolished this week. They operated from that building from their sign on in September 1955 until June 2013 when they moved full-time into their Greenville facilities http://www.witn.com/content/news/WITNs-original-building-being-demolished-by-current-owner-488399631.html
  15. Longtime WTTG weekend PM anchor/reporter Matt Ackland leaves after 16 years at the station [MEDIA=twitter]1018310684172578817[/MEDIA]
  16. I think he does have 100% control though. His posts are all 100% him, nothing seems to be corporate bullshit.
  17. Longtime DC sports personality Chick Hernandez has left NBC Sports Washington, this is a bummer. [MEDIA=twitter]1003991077009977344[/MEDIA]
  18. WJLA/NC8 morning and 5pm co-anchor Larry Smith's contract was not renewed, he had been with them since 2015. [MEDIA=twitter]1002848667425034240[/MEDIA]
  19. I don't know where FIOS gets their guide info, but wherever they get it from still thinks James Adams and Mary-Alice Salinas still anchor WRC's 6pm Saturday show and also that Barbara Harrison & Joe Krebs do the 11.
  20. I'm surprised they didn't do an entire newscast like WRAL did in 2006 with Charlie Gaddy, Bobbie Batista, Bob DeBardelaben, and Tom Suiter did. They did the 6pm show and it was a fairly heavy news night for them, so it wasn't a lot of reminiscing.
  21. WUSA 9's Bruce Johnson spoke to DCRTV to say that he's finished his first round of chemo and is doing well. So happy to hear this.
  22. Karla Redditte will be taking over for Sabrina Squire at WWBT. I'm glad they decided to promote from within, rather than an outside hire. It seems more natural to have an already familiar face to viewers take over for a retiring anchor, meteorologist, etc. http://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2018/5/8/you-redditte-right-richmond-station-has-a-new-anchor
  23. Patrick and Megan McGrath (father and daughter). Patrick was a longtime anchor/reporter for WTTG, retired awhile back. Megan is still a morning reporter for WRC. The late Stan Chambers and Jaime Chambers (grandfather and grandson) Lester and Stefan Holt (father and son) Robin and Sally-Ann Roberts (sisters) Dr. Frank and Storm Field (father and son) Sue and Liz Palka (mother & daughter) Those are the few I can remember off the top of my head.
  24. I'm fucking heartbroken to pass this along, but longtime WUSA anchor/reporter Bruce Johnson has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma.... Bruce will be taking an indefinite LoA from the anchor desk to battle this. http://www.wusa9.com/article/news/local/wusa9-anchor-bruce-johnson-diagnosed-with-cancer/65-546664972
  25. Eat, didn't we have this talk a couple weeks ago? Humans are friends, not food!
