  1. Update: Hassan confirmed it herself. Says she thought about life outside of work in an Instagram post.
  2. Looks like Yasmeen Hassan is out from CBS 2. I took a look at the station site and her bio is no longer there nor is her username on the morning news ticker tape (Bottom Of Screen) is shown. (Screenshot taken, 3/13/2020 during NonStop News Block)
  3. I just realized the desk was from downstairs! Good thing it’s still in use.
  4. Erin Kennedy was laid off last May just 3 months after she came back from Maternity leave. Thats why Audrina Bigos has been anchoring the past year.
  5. Over the weekend Rafer Weigel revealed that Idler was trying to fire him the same way former WLS GM Joe Ahern fired his father years back!
  6. A lot of shade is coming to light. I was thinking the GM was trying to just cover it up, before outside sources (Feder) started to bring it out. IMO I wonder how people would've reacted to this if MG had said that to former anchor Diann Burns during her tenure at WLS.
  7. And I'm saying hoping Caplan gets the spot because we all know how viewers get outraged when an "Out of Towner" is hired to a Chicago station.
  8. Let's see what they do. (Hoping Caplan gets the spot)
  9. Steve Dolinsky has announced that he's leaving. https://www.robertfeder.com/2021/01/29/hungry-hound-steve-dolinsky-leaving-abc-7s-eat-beat/?fbclid=IwAR32kw7rY-ex53o8GXPGMJAiEG-WNnbFElDgXg86ZoBI00LUT5eTUAbrDFM
  10. It's highly likely they could just do Banfield's show from the interview set upstairs in the NewsNation Newsroom.
  11. Last man Standing actually airs on "WGN 9" during the 8pm hour I believe.
  12. As long as the bosses don't tamper with the music even the main "WGN News" Breaking News Theme cut from '97, even though 615's "Chicago's Very Own" is 13 years old.
  13. The curtains are just blinds for the windows in the newsroom. They somewhat are still slightly seen.
  14. I'm trying to figure out why the afternoon theme wasn't in the 11:30 open from 1993
  15. Rob Johnson and Judy Hsu were filling in for Ron and Diann, it was a Friday night so Judy wasn't anchoring her morning shift that day. I'm surprised it wasn't the royal WLS-TV evening theme.
  16. I remember being an infant and recognizing the colors of this talent bump back in the day! Took years to find this!
  17. And I of course recently made a Mugo Odigwe edit, however it will not upload due to the large file....
  18. Bomke is back! (From 8-18-2020)
  19. I know this is may not be ABC 7 Related. But recently I had just left my own news company on August 7th. As I was with my news company, I was trying hard to keep the old ABC 7 '92 theme alive while I was in business. So I did a tease with the classic "Tonight at 10" Theme as well as all the other cuts also that were used on ABC 7. I have it uploaded to YouTube if anyone wanted to find it!
  20. I was stunned to see that it was a true deal. But what about Fazio? He's been on the 4PM for the last two years
  21. I've got a few "NonStop News" uploads on my YouTube channel from around the time Erin was back from maternity leave. In addition to that, I've also edited a "6:52" compilation where the anchors were next to the desk, which is pretty short but better than nothing
  22. So many see lately Yasmeen has been in the newsroom following the breaking stories, which was originally Audrina's role. I just don't know if it seems right. Since Kennedy and Glaros were laid off, we all know that morning show hasn't been the same. I honestly think Mugo Odigwe would be a better fit for the position. (Screenshot taken from a Nonstop News Segment 7-17-2020)
  23. Yeah originally as Breaking News Anchor (Which was a promotion I guess she reconsidered).
