If anyone has been wondering where former 6abc anchor Monica Malpass ended up, looks like she is now a Business Anchor at the NASDAQ.

Good for her. She deserves it after 25 years where it looks like its a promotion where she'll be across the country and not just Philadelphia. I just hope WPVI picks up her reports. 😋

Just wondering, has anyone seen Jaclyn Lee anchor yet? I wonder if she was just hired as a fill-in anchor or if they intend her to be Walter’s co-anchor on weekends evenings as some of have speculated.

Nope. Just reporting from all I've seen since she debuted.

Maybe she is a fill-in and she'll get a broadcast sooner or later, or all this really is speculation. Can't be 100% sure either way.

Sharrie is co-anchoring with Walter tonight (Saturday). I assume it’s because of the coverage of the protests.

Just saw an ad [...] that there will be an Action News 50th anniversary TV special on Thursday, June 18 at 8PM.

My only gripe is that it isn't longer than an hour or was a docuseries of a sort. Other than that, I'm super excited to watch.

I'd had given anything for even just an hour for WLS's 50th (as Eyewitness News, or as WLS), but we only got a 2-minute web-only hodgepodge of YouTube clips, in "celebration" of their 70th anniversary on the air. Such a disappointment, compared to the other O&O's.

Reminder that this special airs tonight.  According to my TV listings, it will be on again Saturday at 7PM and Sunday at 1PM and 12 midnight.

Watched the special and enjoyed it. Even so, as someone else mentioned, they could have done a two hour show and gone into more detail about the history. I thought it was interesting that Monica Malpass was barely mentioned though. With her quick departure a few months ago, it seems like they had a falling out but who knows. Rick mentioned that Monica is retired but that isn’t the case since we know she’s at Nasdaq.

It does make you wonder about Monica. Her departure was abrupt. It seems on the outside she was a team player and one of Jim’s primary subs. After Jim, she had to be one of if not the most tenured talent at the time she left. I’m curious.

Monica `100% was forced out. I looked at her Instagram at the time she left and about a week before, 6abc must've had new talent photos taken cause she posted hers for fans to see. No reason to include someone in a photoshoot who is "retiring". And of course most longtime anchors/reporters have their retirement or leaving (and not going to a competitor) announced weeks in advance. Monica's was a btw, i'm retiring at the end of this newscast in about 15 minutes.

 

Obviously was not on good terms also, since she didn't appear to have been interviewed for this, or maybe she declined???? As for the reason, we might never know, but I have my suspicions it might be for the same reasons she was reportedly reprimanded for back in the early 2000's.

What was she reprimanded for in the early 2000's?

I can't find any source material now to back up what I remember reading back then, and I don't remember every exact detail. Considering that, i'm not sure I can post what I do remember as without any source it would just be unfounded hearsay/rumor and might violate site rules.

 

I can say however she was either suspended/fired for 3 weeks to a month in 2005, and was going thru an very ugly and public divorce at the time. I'll try searching for what I remember reading about again later when I have more time. I think it might've been something Dan Gross posted one time.
