 Steve Lacy and Lori Stokes have no chemistry as an anchor team. It's hard to watch.  In fact, none of WNYW's anchors/anchor teams work. From anchors to reporters, they all seem inexperienced. They need to work on their delivery. 

I don’t know if it’s fair to make that assessment of all of the teams. I agree about Steve. I think being paired with Lori and falling flat shows that he only attributed to Dari’s issues. 
 

I personally enjoy Rosanna and Bianca. 
Dan and Tashanea have only been together for a couple of weeks.


Weather and Traffic wise on Good Day with Mike and Ines - they have been with the team for at least 15 years each. Nick has been on for years. Audrey as well. I think it’s a strong team.

 

Reporter wise, they are younger - but even some young talent like Teresa Priolo, Robert Moses have over 10 years with the station.

Fox 5 may not stand out these days, but I think they benefit from WPIX going through several anchor/personnel changes every few years (especially in the morning). PIX’s newscasts have always been inferior to their Tribune/Nexstar counterparts in Chicago and LA, but they at least used to have some character. They now have newscasts that are even more bland and uninspiring than Fox 5. IMHO, they never fully recovered after dumping Jim and Kaity from evenings, and that’s worked to Fox 5’s benefit.

I know this isn't the PIX thread but you are absolutely right. PIX has yet to recover from dropping Watkins and Tong on the weekdays.

 

I think Fox 5 hasn't recovered the 10 PM slot in quality since Rosanna Scotto and moreso John Roland left the evenings.

Nick, Mike, Inez and Rosanna are fine, but a major problem that the 4:30-7 slot has is it's high anchor turnover. It seems like there's a new team every 3 to 4 years. 

 

What the 7-10 slot needs is a strong Mike Jerrick, Greg Kelly, Karl Stefanovic type personality to sit next to Rosanna.

Kayla Mamalak posted on social media that she is leaving WNYW (and TV news in general) to become deputy press secretary for Mayor Adams.

She'll be back (on TV somewhere) they don't last long in those city hall positions.

Dari was just... not that good. She wasn't good at FNC either.

Was Dari's removal ever officially explained? On that note, was Earnie ready to go or was he pushed pushed out? 

 

Lori is is solid news woman but IMO Eyewitness News was a better fit for her. It's like Roz. Abrams at CBS 2 verses ABC 7. Same person, same ability,  just different stations.

 

Her and Sukanya's departures from their respective stations were really a seismic shift in the mornings.

Eyewitness News was a better fit for Lori, but IIRC WABC was dealing with a…situation with both a horrible GM and a horrible ND. 
 

As for Ernie, he was in his mid 70s when he left in 2019. He’d already stopped anchoring the more traditional 5/10p newscasts at that point, and he probably just wanted to retire after a long career.

 

Speaking of which, today is Ernie’s 78th birthday. Happy Birthday Ernie, and keep *plucking* along.

Per Fox 5, Ernie was off to Harvard Business School to get his MBA, similar to reporter Baruch Shemtov. Sukanya was pushed out by the former PIX management over allegedly not welcoming replacement Betty Nguyen on social media. To my recollection, no one at 'NYW made mention of Dari's exit.

Chrlamagne that God and Rosanna were good this morning for the discussion segments.

I like that the other anchors gave dry opinions without getting into full blown opinionated debate.

 

Has anyone noticed how stretched out and pixelated the Central Park skyline background behind the ice cream sandwich couches are?

So, it turns out that she's pregnant. Not sure if it's the main reason for her switching jobs (I'm sure that better hours probably factored in), but I know from having chatted online with another rFox5 reporter who had a child not long ago that they (or maybe their union contract) does not have a generous maternity leave (apparently Fox News is much better). I'm sure that NYC has a much better policy.

What the hell is the 9am hour of Good Day New York? Rosanna Scotto just doing a long and passionate argument about how harmful proposed outdoor dining lawsuits will be to her restaurant. 

Well no need to lose your lunch over it, pal :)

Lollllllllll!

 

Why isnt Bianca included in the 9am hour? Unless Fox 5 wants to keep the rotating guest host format?

I never understood that. Either Rosana didn't want it or Bianca had a really good agent.
