  1. You are correct on that. For right now be grateful that MSNBC is taking over with all day impeachment coverage. However, from what I'm observing the O&O's are doing the actual 1PM coverage until local news in the afternoon (From what I saw yesterday with WNBC) They cut into the impeachment coverage to do news at 4, 5, and 6. Again, uncertain if they did a 7PM newscast for re-cap.
  2. I'm going to go with the consensus that it is only for impeachment coverage. However, if not all the NBC O&O's have some sort of "special coverage" this week. Let's see if the 7PM newscast expands to next week with all the O&O's including WNBC.
  3. I'm going to go with the consensus that it is only for impeachment coverage. Yesterday WNBC had regular news coverage for 4, 5, and 6. Uncertain if the news came at 7. Hopefully, they are testing the waters for a 7PM newscast again.
  4. DC News: News 4- WRC Sports Anchor: Sherree Burruss has left the station and now working with CBSHQ in CT & NYC. She joins the reins of Dianna Rossini another DC sports anchor favorite to leave WRC and head for the national spotlight.

  5. No wonder. They have 3 full time meteorologists. I mean other CBS O&O's have at least 4 to 5. At least the good news is that they didn't have to go far at all. Is Matt Peterson still doing AM's?
  6. Just too many cuts with ESPN. Cari was a very good host. Enjoyed her Uber commercials with some of the best NBA elite. I could see Maria Taylor being next to leave if cuts continue. At this point get rid of the LA studio, and why even build a studio remotely to PTI in DC.. Good news is that some of that NBA coverage will return on Saturdays starting 1/18 beginning at 3:30, going into primetime on ABC and a late night game on ESPN.

  7. Superbowl 54 is roughly 2 weeks away. Most of the Fox O&O's including WNYW will get the new graphics package. As others eluded that everything won't be the same at the time new graphics release. However, it's all a work in progress with updates
  8. Made that call on my post on Christmas eve 12/24.. Knew that was happening. They are just steps away from Union Station and Acela Express operates at 5:00AM.
  9. More MSNBC news: TV Newscheck and the New York Post are reporting that Chuck Todd could lose his 5PM slot to Nicole Wallace since her show-Deadline White House catches more of the 25-54 demographic and which peaked at 2 Million viewers in 2019. Although Chuck has the #1 Sunday political show peaking at 3 Million viewers I don't suspect that Chuck would like the 9AM slot for MTP Daily during the week. https://pagesix.com/2020/01/02/chuck-todds-meet-the-press-daily-facing-axe-to-make-room-for-nicolle-wallace/?_ga=2.122079887.544412441.1578056049-870457080.1525776785 Stephanie Ruhle now NBC Senior Business Correspondent per this article from AdWeek: https://www.adweek.com/tvnewser/msnbcs-stephanie-ruhle-has-been-named-nbc-news-senior-business-correspondent/425546/ Her 9AM slot is about to be open. Interestingly, I would like to see which show or anchors they will shuffle for MSNBC live.
  10. Tony Perkins expected to be back at WUSA-DC.
  11. Interesting news from Fox 29 by way of this post from FTV: Bruce Gordon has retired from Fox Philadelphia. Source: FTV: https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2020/1/6/done-in-philly Retired as of Friday. Announced retirement on Good Day Philly.
  12. One of the best Sportscenter Anchors and part-time Sideline reporters.. #RIP Stuart Scott.
  13. So technically would this mostly be a WABC move from 67th and Columbus to Downtown + the remaining offices that occupy ABC. I'm in that Hudson Square area and construction has been very active as of late. Would this also mean that GMA + GMA3 may end up staying at TSS while everyone else is Downtown?.
  14. Listen, no worries. Although the points are valid you just gotta remember that everyone else may have their own spin of things. Working 8.5 hours a day in the #1 market is no easy fate. Perhaps WABC doesn't have a breaking news anchor or an anchor who could do cut-ins during the GMA hour while Ken and Shirleen are prepping for the 12 noon newscast. If you go down the dial to WNBC and WCBS, they have similar situations. However, in the case of WNBC their morning anchors don't anchor the 11AM news, they have a breaking news anchor(s), and unless the 11AM anchors are off. Only WABC and WCBS have the same morning anchors broadcast the news at noon.
  15. I kinda find that strange although there's promo of Bill, Sade and Lee at 5:00PM.
