  1. 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.
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. Best wishes to the "Fish" in a speedy recovery! https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10157234134827178
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. WTVR's consumer reporter Sandra Jones just announced she is leaving effective today for a similar position at WVIT.
  9. 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/
  10. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=878306638997667 Wow, Tony Perkins reunited with his old radio buddy, the great Donnie Simpson.
  11. 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.
  12. [MEDIA=twitter]940945321127038977[/MEDIA] Tom Sherwood is a fine reporter, glad he'll still be over on WAMU (NPR).
  13. http://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2017/12/8/raleigh-station-names-new-anchor WRAL taps WBNS weekend anchor Jeff Hogan to take over for the retiring Bill Leslie in the summer, although he'll start in January. I'm honestly surprised WRAL didn't promote from within, Ken Smith was my choice to get the spot, as he had worked with Renee Chou in the past when she was his weekend evening co-anchor.
  14. Verizon FIOS drops Bloomberg https://www.verizon.com/Support/Residential/contract-information?CMP=DMC-CVZ_ZZ_ZZ_Z_ZZ_N_X00796
  15. Any chance of a WGN America simulcast this year?
  16. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10155515683406154 Congrats to WRAL meteorologist/producer Nate Johnson on the new gig with NBC O&O's as Director of Weather Operations. Add this to the list of WRAL exits within the next year. Bill Leslie and David Crabtree announced their retirements effective next year, Lynda Loveland is leaving at the end of the year, and longtime reporter Julia Sims (née Lewis) is leaving as well.
  17. Mike Hydeck is a great guy, certainly will miss him on WUSA.
  18. According to his Twitter, he was on MSNBC this afternoon after Alex Witt.
  19. I'd honestly like to see Ken Smith get to take Bill Leslie's spot in the morning. He's been the weekend evening co-anchor for ages it seems, incredibly good reporter, and very well liked among the viewers. Regardless of who is picked though, I'm sure Capitol Broadcasting has enough common sense to promote within and not hire from the outside, unless they were able to snag someone from WTVD or WNCN.
  20. In the next 5-10 years, I honestly won't be surprised if Greg Fishel decides to call it a career. How can you "replace" a guy like the Fish? Granted I think someone like Mike Maze or Elizabeth Gardner would be promoted, but still... it's crazy.
  21. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1572731756130351 Longtime WRAL morning/noon co-anchor Bill Leslie will retire on June 30th, 2018. David Crabtree also said recently that he'll be retiring at the end of 2018.
  22. WUSA airs their own ticker during CBS TM, but it looks like WTVR uses the standard one. Do CBS affiliates have the option to override the main one? I know WTVD always ran their own ticker during GMA, but most ABC affiliates I've seen run the standard one.
  23. WRAL weekend evening co-anchor Kathryn Brown will take Lynda Loveland's place when she leaves the station in December. Nice to see they're promoting from within. http://www.wral.com/kathryn-brown-to-take-daily-anchor-spot-beginning-in-december/16967230/
  24. I remember that shooting quite well, but didn't remember when it was.
  25. Been thinking lately about WRAL and the Olympics this year, I wonder how they're going to handle the Raycom ACC package during prime time? I assume they could send basketball over to FOX 50, because putting it on a subchannel would piss a lot of people off, especially bar owners that have Directv/Dish Network and no subchannels, and I can't imagine NBC would be too happy about them delaying/moving the Olympics to a subchannel either. Food for thought lately.
