  1. For additional context: A few weeks ago, WABC's corporate sibling, ESPN, fired reporter Marly Rivera for calling a fellow reporter that very word, which ended up on video https://awfulannouncing.com/mlb/marly-rivera-espn-mlb-ivon-gaete.html Not to mention, this is coming after Disney is laying off people across the board.
  2. While the remark may have not made it on air at Channel 7, the Golden rule still applies: Assume every mic and camera is on and can hear you.
  3. A tribute from Rosanna Scotto aired on the 10 o'clock news. John last appeared in an interview in February 2023. He was 81.

    In Memoriam

    Here's his former co-anchor Rosanna Scotto with the report.
  5. I'm surprised that they grabbed someone from Milwaukee as they could easily get any of the meteorologists from the New York-based O&O WNYW.
  6. Audrey Puente on weekends and Reagan Medgie as needed, plus reporting on GDNY.
  7. Well, if she did end up at ABC network, she would still be in the same building, as both Network and 7 are at Lincoln Square.
  8. There has been a recent uptick in COVID cases in NYC to where the health department is recommending masks both indoors and outdoors. Also, NBCUniversal is in the middle of layoff/buyouts at the present moment. If anything, WNBC may just switch to a taped performance out of an abundance of caution and cost-cutting. It's not the end of the world.
  9. Per Page Six, Gio Benitez and Stephanie Ramos will be filling for the rest of the week & that this was not T.J.'s first affair at the network. https://pagesix.com/2022/12/05/gma3-airs-without-t-j-holmes-amy-robach-amid-alleged-affair/
  10. At this point now that Morning/Weekend Express has been canceled, What exactly is HLN at this point? What would be the justification for TV companies to justify having it on its system?
  11. Here's her farewell to ABC on her Twitter
  12. Well, according to the WaPo, Fox may have intended on having a limited presence at the Cup but a last-minute sponsorship may have prevented that from happening. https://awfulannouncing.com/advertising/wapo-qatar-airways-sponsorship-fox-world-cup.html
  13. Nope, per her Instagram, she jumped to 2: https://www.instagram.com/p/Ck1_9-jOQ87/

    In Memoriam

    A sad loss for the NBC Universal family as Gerardo "Jerry" Valdez, the VP of News at Telemundo Houston KTMD-TV 47 passed away following his battle with cancer. He joined them in 2014 following his run at KTRK ABC 13. He was 54. https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2022/10/jerry-vazquez-loses-cancer-battle.html?m=1
  15. It should also be mentioned that this is a return to NYC for Verma, who started at News 12 Bronx / Brooklyn.
  16. Strange because their sister stations in Philadelphia also used it, so what would replace it.
  17. Think of it as 1A and 1B: 1010 is big in NYC while 880 is big in Long Island / Westchester, but it's no slouch.
  18. Per the FTVLIVE, CNN anchor Jim Sciutto has been suspended and is currently the subject of an internal investigation following an unsanctioned stopover in Amsterdam after an assignment https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2022/10/6/cnn-suspends-sciutto
  19. Here's Lori's goodbye on The 6 O'clock News https://www.instagram.com/reel/CjJjKcxAmVh/?igshid=MDJmNzVkMjY%3D Here's the YouTube version: Edit 2: NYC Mayor Eric Adams was in studio to congratulate Lori on her retirement https://youtube.com/watch?v=dpEcxeJV7P0
  20. Well, the networks already have a newscast of sorts running from D.C.--all the sunday talk shows--and Andrea Mitchell hosts her MSNBC hour from there too.

    In Memoriam

    WWJ-AM 950 Detroit overnight anchor Jim Matthews and his family was attacked in their home in Chesterfield Township, Ill., in a murder and attempted suicide. Jim passed away, while the other victims are still recovering from their injuries. He was 57 years old. Here's a report from Fox 2 Detroit. Here is WWJ Radio's report https://www.audacy.com/wwjnewsradio/news/local/wwj-overnight-anchor-jim-matthews-died-today-at-age-57
  22. Something tells me that local KTLA management may follow him out the door over this as well.
  23. WNYW currently has "Good Day Street Talk" hosted by Antwan Lewis, airing Sundays at 6:30AM. To date, both WNBC and WXTV Univision 41 are the only NYC-area stations without a weekend AM political/current affairs show.
  24. Longtime New York City anchor Lori Stokes announced on Instagram that she will retire from television news on Sept. 30th. She's currently the 5, 6 and 10pm news anchor at WNYW after her long tenure at WABC-TV. https://www.instagram.com/p/CifcsIpgNcB/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link
