News Director

News Director (7/8)



  1. That newsroom has suffered a lot of loss over the last few years. Mike Bowersock, Mike Jackson's stroke, Tom McNutt, and now him. He worked with Heather Pick in Rockford and again in Columbus. I liked him, The Mighty Ben Gelber, and Holly Hollingsworth together. They had great chemistry and you could tell they enjoyed working with eachother and genuinely liked one another. Stan Sanders stupidly split them up. He left in 2007 after station management cut newsroom operations down, and immediately began working for City Council. Huge loss for Newschannel 4. RIP.
  2. BIG loss for the television news industry... he will be sorely missed.
  3. Jackson had a massive stroke last January-- his bio remains on the station's website as "Anchor Emeritus."
  4. Kerry Charles is headed from Atlanta to Columbus - will replace Mike Jackson at WCMH. https://www.nbc4i.com/local-4-you/nbc4-announces-kerry-charles-to-anchor-6p-7p-and-11p-news/
  5. Greg O’Neill was the voice of WXIX until 2013. I miss him!
  6. — WCMH was in the midst of a transition period from News 4 to NewsChannel 4 in the first clip. NBC had just bought them from Outlet and was tacking on the peacock and chimes in every place they could. They were still on that set as recently as 2008. I will say, I like their hybrid WNBC/WRC era — WNBC’s on air bug with WRC’s graphics. — WSYX was dead last in the late 1990s, yet they had such a quality team... Bob Hetherington, Terri Sullivan, Charlene Brown, Carol Luper... I like what Sinclair has done for WSYX over the last 20 years, especially post-NewsCentral. They’ve become like a second flagship for them. — No 10TV, save for KidsNews Network? KNN was pretty innovative for its time, though!
  7. Once again, you made this up. KCOP is the only station in LA running Judge Jerry.
  8. The funny thing is — WCMH dumped that package and Signature a few months later for Prime News and rebranding to NewsChannel 4, this was just the placeholder from when NBC took over operations after merging with Outlet.
  9. WBNS coverage from 9/11 — anchors: Andrea Cambern, Angela Pace and Helen Neill.
  10. What does this have to do with anything??
  11. Wendy got her start in Columbus on WWHO — so it’s like going home. I’m surprised they haven’t let go of The People’s Court or Divorce Court yet. I’m shocked 4 didn’t get Kelly Clarkson, seeing as it was Steve’s direct replacement. However, Media General began to move away from NBCUniversal Television Distribution as the station’s main syndication provider... looks as if Nexstar is continuing that. Sinclair must have been willing to pay more than Nexstar for it.
  12. Columbus, as of 9/9: WBNS — No changes. CBS-centric lineup remains stagnant. WCMH — Midday is extended to one hour. Wendy Williams is gone. Mel Robbins launches at 2pm, replacing Steve. I’m shocked they didn’t get Kelly Clarkson’s talkshow. WSYX — Kelly Clarkson runs at 9am, replacing Millionaire. Tamron Hall runs at 3:00pm, replacing The Doctors which moves to 1:30 am. WSYX also launches a 7pm newscast: “Good Evening Columbus,” shunting Access Hollywood to 1:05 am — post Nightline. WTTE — Judge Jerry runs at 12pm, replacing Face the Truth. WWHO — Save for Wendy Williams returning, no changes to report.
  13. What is with station groups and purging veteran talent after sales close?
  14. 10TV’s cable penetration is insane... they reach as far west as Dayton, as far south as Scioto County, as far north as the Cleveland area (on cable) and as far east as Parkersburg/Charleston, WV.
