  1. I remember watching him at the hell hole of WOAY, glad I'm able to see him again.
  2. WTTG just aired the security camera footage. That guy had to have been messed up on some sort of drugs, I don't think this was anything anti-media related, especially with DC Police saying he was known by them very well.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. That's a name I haven't heard in years, I hadn't heard anything about him since his second go-around at WCCB.
  6. 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.
  7. I apologize if this has been posted before, but did Tribune pick up the syndicated rights to Wipe Out? I just noticed WTVR and WDCW are currently airing it.
  8. Reminds me of a time I was in Charlotte and there was a sign on 77 for "Indepednence Blvd".
  9. Wow, is her show only in overnights in other markets? I'd expect an overnight delegation for the trash duo or some low rent bullshit court show, but I figured Rachael Ray was still fairly popular.
  10. Here's what I can find out from DC as well as WTVR & WRLH.. (accurate as of 8/30/18) WRC: No changes WTTG: Dr. Oz moves to 1pm replacing Harry WTVR: No changes WJLA: No changes WUSA: No changes WDCA: Face the Truth from Noon-1pm replacing Dr. Oz, The Big Bang Theory moves to 5pm replacing Anger Management WDVM: No changes WRLH: Sins & Secrets from 3:30am-4:30am replacing Harry, The Doctors moves to 9am replacing Jerry Springer, Millionaire from 1pm-2pm replacing The Doctors, Face the Truth from 3pm-4pm replacing Jerry Springer. WDCW: Sins & Secrets from 8am-9am replacing Jerry Springer, Couples Court & Judge Hatchett from noon-1pm replacing Crime Watch Daily, Jerry Springer to 3pm replacing Robert Irvine.
  11. WTVR is debuting their new "Storm Rider 6" truck today, are any other Tribune stations using one of these?
  12. [MEDIA=twitter]1032628105087737856[/MEDIA] The great Bruce Johnson is CANCER FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  13. 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/
  14. Should be an interesting show. I love when they're on Stephanie Miller's radio show.
  15. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=2350047018357454 This picture says it all. So happy to hear some good news about Bruce Johnson.
  16. 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
  17. Longtime WTTG weekend PM anchor/reporter Matt Ackland leaves after 16 years at the station [MEDIA=twitter]1018310684172578817[/MEDIA]
  18. Watching Match Game reruns on BUZZR this afternoon and apparently they now stream online, along with being available on DISH Network. I knew they were on DISH, but how many of the diginets stream online, outside of some of the smaller/lesser-carried ones like Heartland?
  19. I think he does have 100% control though. His posts are all 100% him, nothing seems to be corporate bullshit.
  20. Longtime DC sports personality Chick Hernandez has left NBC Sports Washington, this is a bummer. [MEDIA=twitter]1003991077009977344[/MEDIA]
  21. 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]
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
  25. 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
