  1. KCAL could run the CBS Evening News live. KCAL no longer has any sports obligations (other than maybe some preseason NFL football) so making them the news brand makes sense.
  2. Joe Donlon is joining Albert Ramon and his old boss Jennifer Lyons at WBBM. Looks like that may be the next stop for NewsNation alumni who want to flee this sinking ship.
  3. So who was hosting Prime tonight? I don’t recognize this host.
  4. Today on Dan Abrams one of his guests pined for Live PD to come back and Abrams said he was working on it every day. Quite frankly, they should run Live PD after Prime on Saturday, and Sunday nights for two or three hours, and rename Abrams' show to something more generic with someone else hosting earlier in the week. The general perception is that NewsNation leans right anyway.
  5. Nobody wants to run KTVA though. There is only one TV news operation in Alaska because ABC/Fox is a joke, but who will subsidize it?
  6. Those were "very special episodes" of Banfield which were pre-taped. Adrienne Bankert hosted the last couple of nights. As far as Leland Vittert I know he is trying to be edgy but we really don't need his opinions on Rush Hour. And it is interesting that NN is going back to putting full shows on their Youtube, maybe for those who have actual cable subscriptions but can't access NN because of Nexstar not granting access (hello Spectrum).
  7. Who’s the new house voiceover guy on NewsNation? Sounds familiar.
  8. I can't imagine it's much of a "bureau". It could just be a videographer storing equipment at their house. Tom Negovan and Brian Entin can work from their homes.
  9. More people probably read this message board than watch either KYUR or KTBY. It is essentially irrelevant in Alaska.
  10. Chuck Weber at WPEC retires. https://cbs12.com/news/local/saying-good-bye-to-chuck-weber There's an interesting video using old clips with some guy in a bad mustache
  11. Looks like KTTV is hiring for a chief meteorologist regardless, I guess Rick may not be too keen on being confined to the weather desk. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2020/9/28/guess-its-official
  12. Related, Coastal is hiring in Alaska for a photojournalist, paying the grand sum of $14.50 an hour. Maybe they need B-roll for the 120 seconds of local news they do before they run News Net. http://www.youralaskalink.com/site/employment.html
  13. Here's the last morning signoff on KTVA, posted on anchor Liz Raines's YouTube: Anchor Liz Raines just married champion dog musher Matthew Failor, so I think she's being honest when she's not going anywhere, but the on-air opportunities in Alaska are going to be extremely slim. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/08/28/fashion/weddings/Musher-Matthew-Failor-marries-Liz-Raines-Alaska.html
  14. Pablo Pereira seems to have been deleted by the station and from social media since the end of July. Rick Dickert was basically moved over from mornings to accommodate Stu Mundel, and to better use his talents, but still Pablo was around for a while, but is older so may not fit the Fox demographic. Zero coverage on any site though.
  15. Laura Monteverdi, who was recently let go from KTHV, is moving to Nexstar Nation to replace Ashley Ketz, now in Chicago reporting for NewsNation. She'll join longtime anchor Bob Clausen at 5, 6, and 10. https://www.kark.com/news/local-news/laura-monteverdi-joins-kark-4-news-as-evening-anchor/
