  1. Verizon FIOS and Xfinity have added it as well, so it has a lot more reach than it did in the WHAG days.
  2. Nothing too big out of DC or Richmond yet, but WDVM is getting the new Vivica A. Fox show. I'm interested to see what WTTG is going to replace Harry with. WRLH delegated him to overnights shortly after the new year in favor of a second run of Wilkos.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. Eat, didn't we have this talk a couple weeks ago? Humans are friends, not food!
  6. WRAL evening meteorologist Mike Maze sat down with the Raleigh News & Observer about some health challenges he's currently facing, very good read to learn about a rare condition. http://www.newsobserver.com/news/local/article209622484.html
  7. Is there any local TV station in the US that airs more news than KTLA? I swear it seems like they have more than anyone, not counting local cable news nets like NY1 or News Channel 8 of course.
  8. Former WTTG weekend sports guy Brody Logan signs on with KUSA as their new sports director. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1645088628913483
  9. I know WUSA moved golf or whatever else was on over to their old Bounce subchannel, but now that Bounce is affiliated with WFDC, all WUSA has is Justice Network and I'm not sure how friendly they are with their programming being pre-empted.
  10. I've said the same thing. They could even get MASN 2 in the deal because this time of year, there'll be a need for a third NBCSN Washington channel to help cover early playoff matches for the Caps and Wizards, as well as early season Nats games.
  11. BaltoMedia.net reports that for the first time in decades, the Orioles will not be aired on OTA TV, leaving all games exclusive to MASN (excluding those picked up by ESPN, MLB Network, and FOX. The Nats are also out of an OTA home. So for cord-cutters in Charm City and the DMV, unless WTTG and/or WBFF pick up some games, you're out of luck, and MASN has no option for in market streaming.
  12. CNN-SI and CNN-FI send their regards too.
  13. WJLA meteorologist Josh Knight helped out WBFF about a year or so ago in their time of need. Not to mention, the occasional fill-in WX gigs during network morning shows, they usually poach from the O&O's. Similar thing happened when Paul Magers did an impromptu SR when Muhammad Ali passed. Unrelated but while I'm thinking of it, are network O&O's basically considered de-facto bureaus for their parent network? Not talking about NYC, DC, Chicago, or LA, but say Raleigh for WTVD/ABC, Austin for KTBC/FOX, etc?
  14. My brother has a Yeti cooler and a couple of the Ozark cups. The cups keep ice for him all day in the heat (he's a mechanic) and the cooler has served us well on many beach trips.
  15. I've been looking for that to post here. They never had that logo during my time in NC, but I remember seeing it on a YouTube video of their old newscasts
  16. I'm surprised they got a new set, the one they were on was only a few years old. IIRC, they debuted it about a year before the affiliation swap. They had a newsroom set before that that I really liked.
  17. WNCN rebrands to CBS 17. I always thought that's what they should have been called after the affiliation swap with WRAL, not "CBS North Carolina". http://www.cbs17.com/news/cbs-north-carolina-rebrands-as-cbs-17/1048220823
  18. Best wishes to the "Fish" in a speedy recovery! https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10157234134827178
  19. I can't stand to watch GMA nowadays. If they have an interesting story or guest, I'll set it up on my DVR, but other than that I'll flip between CTM and WTTG.
  20. I've seen it quite often, especially former on-air talent visiting their old station if they happen to be passing through the area or somehow on assignment in their old market.
  21. WTVR's consumer reporter Sandra Jones just announced she is leaving effective today for a similar position at WVIT.
  22. Huge win for WTVR http://wtvr.com/2017/12/19/wtvr-cbs-6-is-1-morning-to-night-for-first-time-in-30-years-1/
  23. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=878306638997667 Wow, Tony Perkins reunited with his old radio buddy, the great Donnie Simpson.
  24. http://www.newsobserver.com/entertainment/tv/warm-tv-blog/article189736909.html Good lord, yet another departure at WRAL, this time weekend morning co-anchor Gina Benitez is leaving in March. So that makes Lynda Loveland, David Crabtree, Nate Johnson, Bill Leslie, Julia Sims (née Lewis), and now Gina who are all leaving or retiring within the next year or so.
  25. [MEDIA=twitter]940945321127038977[/MEDIA] Tom Sherwood is a fine reporter, glad he'll still be over on WAMU (NPR).
