  1. Sam Champion, Sam Ryan and Mike Marza's bios are all posted finally.
  2. The other thing is under accessibility standards, people are going more and more to Capital letter then lowercase text. WABC's new graphics do that well. KABC's do not.
  3. No. There's no reason to change the graphics. No, it's not the 2009-2016 version, but I enjoy the differences. Also, KABC's chiron operators stink and their graphics are limiting.
  4. On top of everything, Kristin Thorne had her baby and Danielle Leigh got married.
  5. Unfortunately, I've suspected this for a while, but Jim Bouton, the controversial Yankee for his writing of Ball Four during his time with the Seattle Pilots, has passed away today at age 80. Al Primo and company signed him for the first time in 1970 and offered him a small salary of $24,000 to work at WABC. He worked there for 3 years, moving to WCBS after being fired by WABC in 1973. He made the comeback to baseball in 1978 for the Atlanta Braves, then returned to WCBS for another year, leaving in 1980. He's been suffering from cerebral amyloid angiopathy, a form of dementia. This is his obituary in the NY Daily News. I loved this man, and the world is a depresser place without him.
  6. Admittedly, if Diana wasn't retiring on 9/12/19, I would've suggested Diana and David permanently become the 12 pm hosts. Shirleen already works 4:30-7 and as a reporter. Alas, not to be. Regardless, this is the first time I've seen Diana work 12 with Sam present. (She worked Friday, when Sam wasn't there.) It has probably already happened, but I'm not sure.
  7. WNBC and KNBC loved the odd 4s in the 1980s. I liked the WNBC 4. Then they went to a normalized 4.
  8. I hate the KABC ones. Besides the fact they can't spell half the time, they just seem boring. Regardless, they perform their function. Considering how long the old package survived, I doubt they are going to make that quick a switch. (Also, for 12 & 5, the bug has worked as proper)
  9. I did. I don't mind it, but the old one was due for a change. You'll have to likely wait till 2022-2023 probably to get a new one.
  10. They are incredibly rarely used. I'm not sure I've ever seen it before. Regardless, Diana's retirement date is September 12. I don't think that's a date picked out of thin air or because of Shirleen being out. Simpler, it's probably so she can do 9-11 coverage, something I'm sure means a lot.
  11. So I see. I usually am not watching at 5:51 without a reason, but that makes more sense.
  12. Someone made his debut I believe today. Reminds me of Jory Rand from KABC. [/yes i know who Mike Marza is, it's a joke]
  13. You say that, said person probably likely exists that is that pedantic. Why would Spencer Christian want to leave KGO, where he's been for 20 years, to join WABC again, a station he spent 9 years at and probably worked this weekend as a kind gesture?
  14. Shirleen hasn't worked noon in weeks. She confirmed once she's back from maternity leave she will do noon again. Sandra has picked up the majority of her noon newscasts, with Liz, Lauren and Diana picking up a few.
