  1. Nexstar Duopoly WBRE/WYOU in Wilkes-Barre has moved to a temporary set in the news room. "Exciting changes" are coming "in the next few weeks!"
  2. Word around is that Sam is in talks with WABC to return - as weather anchor for EWN @ noon and 4PM. As you may know, once you leave WABC, you generally aren't welcomed back - so this would be a shift from the norm - but since he left for network and not local competition, the "rule" might not apply in this case.
  3. Used to be that Eyewitness News and Action News was only reserved for just CBS, ABC and NBC affiliates. It began in Philadelphia in the 1960s. Al Primo launched Eyewitness News in 1965 at KYW (now CBS3), and then Mel Kampmann launched Action News at ABC6 WPVI in 1970. Those two formats became widespread ever since. But since the late 1990s, there are some FOX, UPN and CW affiliates that used the longstanding Action News or Eyewitness News formats. Some FOX stations had used the Eyewitness News name since the 1970s, when those stations used to be with CBS, ABC and NBC. Let's start with Eyewitness News AND Memphis. WHBQ FOX13 the first FOX station to do so in 1995, calling themselves FOX13 Eyewitness News. This was after WHBQ switched from ABC to FOX that year, and along with that, carried the Eyewitness News name that's been in use since the 1970s. Next up, WLMT CW30 alongside sister station WPTY ABC24, where WLMT called their show CW30 Eyewitness News (as WPTY had ABC24 Eyewitness News). Before that, WLMT was UPN30 Eyewitness News. Of course, there were FOX O&O stations that carried over their Eyewitness News name from their previous networks. For instance, the former CBS affiliates that already had Eyewitness News from the getgo. WJBK Detroit was FOX2 Eyewitness News, WAGA Atlanta was FOX5 Eyewitness News and WTVT Tampa was FOX13 Eyewitness News. This was after FOX bought former CBS, ABC and NBC affiliates from New World in 1994. Now for the Action News. WALA in Mobile and Pensacola used FOX10 Action News. This was after WALA switched from NBC to FOX in 1996, and Channel 10 had the Action News format since the 1980s. Before KMAX was sister station to KOVR CBS13, and while channel 31 was UPN in 1998, their newscast was titled UPN31 Action News.
  4. I think the title says it all. @[S]@blizzard59[/S] @newsanchor26 mentioned this in the chat box saying all their schedules now say WJZ News @ time. I’m currently watching their noon newscast and the open was just “This is WJZ-TV in Baltimore. In your community, where you live. WJZ News at Noon Starts right now.” The open didn’t feature chroma cues at all and sounded like production music. Cuts of Chroma Cues still appear through out the show. When tossing to break it sounded like one of the anchors wanted to say “Still to come on WJZ Eyewitness News at Noon” but caught herself before saying Eyewitness News. I also saw a special graphic that didn’t feature any Helvetica and the text wasn’t stretched out. I’m thinking this is the beginning of big changes at WJZ. But it’s still sad that a longtime brand is going away.
