    They're still using the generic one
    I'm assume it's because Sam is off this week

    Right but Brittany does the 4:30-6 part of the show so I wasn’t sure if they’d have 2 diff talent opens for the morning show

    If one of them had to move to weekend evenings, I’d go with Toni. Michelle’s been on weekend mornings for what feels like forever. I’m surprised they ended up hiring a new weekend anchor instead of sticking with Michelle and Toni though.

    It’s like the times Michelle has been passed over for a weekday spot (which she hinted she wanted at one point) its definitely a somewhat odd decision, unless Toni doesnt want to be tied down to every weekend. What I think would be even cooler tho is to have Joe and Michelle reunite being that Sandra went to weekdays.

    Has it been mentioned at all where Sade Baderinwa has been? I've noticed Sandra Bookman seems to be filling in most nights with Bill. Holiday vacation is normal but it seems like she hasn't been seen in a while.

    I’ve noticed that too. And she’s not been active on social media. Hope all is well and she’s just on a long vacation or something

    I wonder if he will co-host all three hours instead of the two that Bianca was doing? Always seemed odd that she did not do the third hour, but maybe it said something about how Rosanna or the brass felt about her (but if so, why would they have promoted her to that spot)?

    He will be doing the full 7-10 and apparently during the NFL season he’ll do Tuesday-Friday

    Two wars in full bore - death and destruction!


    If you want to spend the holiday with your family, work somewhere else!


    And 2,5,7 and 11 all had newscasts you could watch. 

    if you want to watch the news watch somewhere else.

  6. I get what everyone is saying… but it was Christmas Morning… not many wake up and say let me turn on the news… if anything it would be background noise while you’re opening gifts… I don’t see this as a huge deal especially if it means the staff gets time off with their family. Also GDNY ran a taped special at 9, not a live newscast as expected

    Former Fox5 NY meteorologist Raegan Medgie is filling in for Dani this morning

    She must be training. Dani put up an Instagram story and she is in the studio with her. So they now technically have 6 on air weather people?

    Must have been a last minute call out. Mike must be sick. Channel 7 almost never has one anchor alone on newscasts longer than 30 minutes...except for weekend evenings. They usually don't have anyone fill in for Joe or Sandra when they're off for some reason. 

    They also appear to be short handed this week. It seems as if everyone but Liz was off last night. Not sure who did the 4:00, but Joe and Sandra did 5/11 and Liz did the 6:00 solo. Mike also worked like everyday last week so he is entitled to a day off finally lol

    Interesting. When I passed by it was about 20 minutes to 10 and Shirleen and Dani were sitting at the main desk.IMG_4090.thumb.jpeg.1d13424fe68cea0305469e08cb773ba2.jpeg

    Looks like they could be shooting a promo. I’m sure it doesn’t take much to set up the small desk

    Which goes to the point that if they are willing to put either Joe or Sandra on a weekday slot, age is not a factor.


    Sade moving --not that it's going to happen--is not implausible because didn't Liz Cho get moved from the 11 years ago?


    My line of thinking was, if Bill goes, who will be Sade's co anchor. Do they keep Sade on at 5&11 and add Joe as you suggest, or would they keep a Sandra and Joe pairing intact, or do they get someone different all together.


    Your suggestion seems to be more likely than mine as Sandra is apparently on the noon now. Anyway, it's all speculation. Time will what the station will do.

    Liz wanted off the 11 so she could be home earlier
