Weekend Anchor

Weekend Anchor (3/8)



  1. Wanda Skyes hosted show "Ring Nation" is announced and it will now premiere on September 26. No word on the station groups will be picking up this new series. https://deadline.com/2022/08/wanda-sykes-host-syndicated-viral-video-show-ring-doorbell-technology-1235089510/
  2. Michael Gargiulo was testing positive for COVID-19. He posted on social media that he was fully vaccinated and boosted. They return to work next week. https://www.instagram.com/p/CbdfMAkOfmF/
  3. Filipino-American reporter Chris Jose, formerly of WSB-TV in Atlanta, has jumped over to News 4. His work with the station will start in April. It will be the second reporter of Filipino descent to join WNBC, a year after the death of the station's first Filipino reporter Katherine Creag in February 2021.
  4. Since 2016, "We're 4 New York" is combined with the word "Together" to form "Together, We're 4 New York". There had rumors that they wanted to bring back in 1997 and in 2012, but nothing happened, But they actually revived two times, one in 2002 (after 9/11) and in 2007 (after the station converted to HD). the theme was later used in news promos in 2008-2009, but they replaced it with a production music piece in 2010 but they keep the slogan.
  5. During the live shot by Sandra Torres this morning, there's the reporter from WFLD photobombed the live shot. meanwhile, the bug on the lower thirds had reverted back to normal effective today but this time without the "CHICAGO" wordmark.
  6. Saw the Chicago Marathon 2021 Results Book online, and there's the ad promoting the 10PM newscast featuring Stefan and Allison (minus Brant) that is saying "CONGRATULATIONS MARATHONERS!", but they lacking the 2012 NBC 5 Chicago logo. take a look at the picture.
  7. Here is the promo from WTVJ: https://fb.watch/adshYWT9ko/
  8. There's is an alternate version of the ad. the voiceover tag now says "...And "Sing 2", Only in theaters Wednesday (rated PG)!" which is used for this week only. Look at 0:09 mark for the video.
  9. WNBC's holiday sing along is doing virtual again for the second year. This year's song will be "Feliz Navidad" and it is to tie-in to Illumination's animated film "Sing 2" due to release in theaters on December 22. This year's holiday sing along will marked the fifth year anniversary of hybrid Live Action/Animation promotional involvement between WNBC and Illumination. Take a look on their different comparisons from 2016 and this year: The one from 2016 is filmed in the Rockefeller Center Tree, but they include scenes from promotional clip from the first film. Following the "Happy Holidays" line and Gunter skates over the 2008 "4 New York" logo, the voiceover tag says "...And catch "Sing", in theaters December 21st!" The 2021 version of the promo begins with the characters from the second film followed by Pat, Gus, and Raphael says "Wait! Wait! Wait! What? What?" before the talent singing the same song. Towards the end of the promo, Jimmy Crystal (voiced by Bobby Cannavale) buzzed it, then Chuck Scarborough ends the promo (ala last year) says "Happy Holidays from NBC 4 New York (and Telemundo 47)..." followed by the voiceover tag "...And "Sing 2", Only in theaters December 22nd (Rated PG)!" This is the first time that the WNBC holiday sing along that to bear the MPA PG rating logo as like did to other movie tie-in promotions.
  10. Update on programming changes in Chicago: The third season of N' Digo Studio will now air on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. on WMAQ replacing Infomercials beginning next Sunday. Last week, the revival of America's Black Forum began airing also on WMAQ and it airs at 4:30 am leading to the morning newscast every Saturday.
  11. Actually Stefan did replacing Rob Elgas which he moved to the 4:30pm newscast until he leaved the station in 2015.
  12. JUST IN: Zoraida gets out again for the second time in ten years. Robert Feder confirmed this report. Her final day is next Friday. https://www.robertfeder.com/2021/09/24/robservations-zoraida-sambolin-sign-off-nbc-5-morning-news-anchor/
  13. WNBC once again placed the ad in this year's film guide for that year's Hamptons International Film Festival. They reuse last year's ad with David and Natalie, in which the former replacing Stefan Holt in the 4 and 11PM newscast one year ago. they also not mentioned the reintroduced 7PM newscast when the two are co-anchors.
  14. "America's Black Forum" gets a reboot this season. Marc Moral, the president of the National Urban League will be their host for the revival. https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=173644091505072&id=108192664716882&__cft__[0]=AZVr4Qh_wn8L3xZOFC-X_YzvuFLngr3khZxejaXCqXxsOkNTs8XBFi2bWELXzEvVFaLSRJf_QkHj2dBrCz2BrXdspi3ZZvyosJsOJfBeBI4zcWdTlv3jwdRhzjzKFmUGle_AVIxr67ZbGGUY7d4y_EGA&__tn__=%2CO%2CP-R
  15. A big trade is coming to channel 5. Last May, Assistant ND Tracy Davis has been traded to WVIT and later appointing it as VP of News in exchange for Akemi Harrison, which began their work duties beginning next month. https://www.robertfeder.com/2021/07/06/nbc-5-taps-assistant-news-director-connecticut-station/
