  1. WUSA morning anchor Mike Hydeck joining WVIT effective October. Also leaving the WUSA morning team is Allyson Rae who will be going to WBBH. Lately I've seen Larry Miller fill in for Mike and it was already announced that Miri Marshall will be taking over for Allyson. So in the better part of a year or so, the morning team at WUSA has essentially been 100% replaced. Jan Jeffcoat moved to mornings, with Andrea Roane demoted to noon/evening fill-in duties, plus what I mentioned above. [MEDIA=twitter]907369109893021697[/MEDIA]
  2. As a kid growing up in Northern VA, today's a bittersweet day. I was never 100% loyal to any news channel, but when it snowed, I always loved watching Doug Hill, especially because I thought the "ABC7 Snow Machine" was the coolest thing ever. Best wishes in your retirement, Doug! Feel free to come back and bring Bob Ryan with you when it snows again!
  3. DCRTV reports that WUSA morning meteorologist Allyson Rae is leaving the station to rejoin WBBH in Fort Myers FL.
  4. She's starting this weekend because of Irma and from what I gather, WUSA will go with two meteorologists in the morning as the other DC stations do. (WRC has Chuck Bell & Sheena Parveen, WTTG has Mike Thomas & Tucker Barnes, WJLA has Eileen Whalen and Veronica Johnson).
  5. He's retiring in a couple weeks, I think he announced it in May sweeps. Lately he's only been working the noon, 4, and 5pm shows.
  6. Former WBAL meteorologist Miri Marshall announces she will be taking over in mornings at WUSA https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1213485848757258 I wonder what that means for Allyson Rae?
  7. Really would have rather seen Steve Rudin or Veronica Johnson get the big promotion to take over for Doug Hill.
  8. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1126654984102870 WNCN weekday morning meteorologist Alyssa Corfont announces her departure from the station effective next Friday.
  9. We have CNN-I on FIOS here, but it's in the very high end package that we don't get, which also includes BBC World News (only SD), the HD feed of Oprah's channel, GSN in SD/HD, Logo, and a few others. Surprisingly, we get OWN in our package, but only in SD.
  10. HLN announces that Carol Costello and S.E. Cupp's shows will debut on August 21st. The new HLN weekday schedule (per AdWeek) will be 6a-11a: Morning Express with Robin Meade 11a-1p: Across America with Carol Costello 1p-3p: On the Story with Erica Hill 3p-5p: Michaela Pereria 5p-7p: Forensic Files and/or CNN/HLN original series reruns 7p-8p: S.E. Cupp Unfiltered 8p-9p: Primetime Justice with Ashleigh Banfield 9p-6a: Forensic Files (all times Eastern) http://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/carol-costello-and-s-e-cupps-hln-shows-launch-aug-21/337420
  11. There might be on Roku or something LMAO. Then again, they do have a dog channel on DIRECTV, which didn't do shit for my dogs.
  12. To be fair, the Sewing Channel does have some captivating story telling. Mrs. Edna's show has reduced me to tears at how much she has uncovered in the raw & gritty world of competitive sewing.
  13. The NoVA News airs at live at 7, I think the 11pm is a rerun.
  14. We've had WDVM/WHAG on Fios for a few days now, but only in SD on channel 31, and I gotta say I do enjoy hearing about different stories you won't hear on the big 4 in DC, plus I have family in West Virginia so WV Tonight Live is a good resource to hearing about news in their area.
  15. Former WRIC reporter Candice Cole has resurfaced at WDCW. I guess they're holding their own in the ratings against FOX 5, hopefully they'll soon move full production to DC and expand to an hour.
  16. Pam Saulsby (former WRAL & WNCN anchor) and Bill Leslie (WRAL) are the only names that come to mind for me.
  17. Someone forgot they were signed into the WVEC Facebook before posting this. EDIT: As soon as I posted this, it was taken down.
  18. Chuck Bell, Sheena Parveen, Doug Kammerer, Amelia Draper, Lauryn Ricketts, and a new lady named Somara Theodore. So right now, if you include Tom, they have 7 meteorologists, compared to WJLA's team of 8, WTTG's team of 6, and WUSA's team of 4
  19. Longtime WRC meteorologist Tom Kierein is retiring on June 22nd. Tom was the last remaining meteorologist at the station from the Bob Ryan-era. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=1521263347905659
  20. WJLA/NC8 chief meteorologist Doug Hill announces his retirement effective in September.
  21. Jummy also anchors the noon news.
  22. Leon Harris to join WRC effective tomorrow. At NBC4, Harris will be anchoring the weekend editions of News4 at 6 and News4 at 11 along with Erika Gonzalez. During the week, he will contribute to coverage of breaking news and special events and report on segments that focus on inspiring people in our community. http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Journalist-Leon-Harris-to-Join-NBC4-on-April-21-2017-419965143.html
  23. WJLA morning/noon anchor Jummy Olabanji is joining WNBC as a weekend evening anchor, her last day in DC will be 4/21 (via DCRTV and FTVLive)
  24. WJLA morning anchor Autria Godfrey was arrested last month and charged w/ trespassing & public intoxication. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/reliable-source/wp/2017/03/03/wjla-anchor-autria-godfrey-charged-with-public-intoxication-and-trespassing/?utm_term=.a6edf46fa83b
  25. Honestly, I'd like to see Nancy Loo take Lourdes' place.
