  9. Last weekend, NBC News correspondent Ron Mott was filling in for Dick Johnson on the 5 & 10 pm newscasts. the ND says that there are no further appearances on the anchor desk are planned for Mott in the near future.

  10. A few weeks ago, WMAQ had its own Youtube page. the official YT page had videos of some really interesting news stories as well as clips from the station's newscasts. What a great effort by NBC to set-up the other owned stations' official Youtube pages. https://youtube.com/channel/UCL9C44BZd_8hRa9OPMjIpMg/
  11. It will be a possibly an potential contender to channel 7's "Windy City Live". Great question. Most NBC O&Os like in NYC, LA, San Francisco, San Diego, Miami, Boston and Hartford had their own lifestyle shows, meanwhile the Philadelphia station had previously have a lifestyle show. Only DC & Dallas don't have their own lifestyle shows of ours.
