Looking at the 10pm show tonight, is it me, or does it look like the 2 anchors are back at regular spacing and not the 6ft spacing?

They're still spaced apart, but they're closer than before.

Part 26,626 of "does the theme song matter?" A remix was played as part of warm-ups to the Flyers/Blue Jackets game on Tuesday, 2/18... It was noticed on Twitter and more.       

New 4pm anchor?

HUGE loss for Channel 6.  She is a great meteorologist.   -- Matt

I wonder why. Walter and Sarah were spaced out during the noon show on Tuesday.

Oddly, Rick was on at 4pm with Sarah yesterday, and not Walter who anchored with her at noon. I wonder who anchored at noon today?

The noon anchors this week were different pretty much every day.

 

Monday: Walter & Sarah

Tuesday: Walter & Sarah

Wednesday: Sarah

Thursday: Brian & Sarah

Friday: Brian

I just (like literally just now) heard a rejoin voiceover that I've never heard before. Here's how it went:

 

"Action News, Delaware Valley's leading news program, now continues."

 

Has anyone heard this before? 

Still hearing this voiceover, but only at 4pm. Hour-long weekend evening newscasts use the generic rejoin (Action News continues). I wonder why they choose to air this at 4?

Just caught the end of the noon newscast and it had a female voiceover saying “brought to you by Patio Enclosures” and then there was a full ad for it. Not sure if 6 has done this before but I haven’t seen it and thought it was strange.

Maggie Kent is co-anchoring the 5PM news today with Sharrie.

Yes I saw that and found it to be a bit weird. Both Brian and Sarah were on at noon and 4pm. They always tend to be Rick and Sharrie’s main backups, along with Erin, and vice a versa. Even if they were unavailable, it seems odd that they wouldn’t have Walter or Gray sub.

She co-anchored at 5 PM today as well. I believe it may be because she’s also filling in at 10 PM. A little surprised they just don’t go solo at 10 PM when the one anchor is off.

It's odd, because Brian filled in for Rick on Friday (I think), but Maggie filled in on Monday and Tuesday. Brian isn't off this week; why couldn't he just fill in at 5pm and Sharrie solo at 10pm?

Today at 12noon Sarah is anchoring solo, but instead of saying Brian is off, she said Brian will be along a little bit later, which means that he’ll be anchoring the later shows. Makes me think that he will be filling in for Rick at both 5PM and 10PM, in addition to anchoring the 4PM. I wonder why they think it is essential to have a coanchor at 10PM when one of the anchors is off, but not at 12noon.

Now Maggie is with Brian at 4pm. Maybe Brian will be on with Sharrie at 5 and 10, which explains why he was off at noon? But then why can't Sharrie anchor at 4pm? Why do they need to have Maggie?

Especially since Sarah is working why couldn’t she have anchored the 4 PM? Sarah did give the preview for the 5 PM, so I wonder if both Rick and Sharrie are off today. Alicia was the feature anchor at 4pm. In the close, they mentioned Sarah’s name.

 

Update as I’m writing this, Sarah and Erin are co-anchoring at 5pm.

I wonder if there is a stipulation in the agreement between stations that there must be two anchors for the 10:00 p.m. broadcast?

 

I don’t think, as the 10 PM has had solo anchors in the past.

Nope. Rick and Sharrie are BOTH off, and Erin O'Hearn and Sarah Bloomquist are in at 5.

I’m wondering if they wanted an anchor on both newscasts instead of having two fill-in reporters doing the 5pm? Although not sure I understand why Brian and Sarah didn’t just anchor at 4pm and 5pm ... unless Jim is also off???

 

I feel like we should have a 4pm anchor announcement in the next month, so maybe they are testing pairs?

 

Even weirder, both Walter and Gray were in studio doing reports so they could have also filled in.

Yeah, none of this makes any sense. Here is the schedule that I think would have made more sense:


4pm: Brian and Maggie OR Brian and Sarah

5pm: Brian and Sarah

6pm: Jim

10pm: Brian and Maggie 

11pm: Jim

Thursday’s lineup was the following:

12noon: Sarah solo

4pm: Brian and Sarah

5pm: Brian and Maggie

10pm: Brian and Maggie

 

Curious to see what Friday brings as Sarah is traditionally off.

Erin O’Hearn occasionally fills in for Sarah. I think this will be the lineup: 

12pm: Erin 

4pm: Brian and Erin

5pm: Brian and Maggie

10pm: Brian and Maggie

 

Or, Karen could do the news and weather at noon, LOL.

Here are my candidates for 4pm co-anchor, since we should be getting an announcement for the replacement soon.

 

Very likely

Sarah Bloomquist

 

Likely

Alicia Vitarelli

Erin O'Hearn

 

Possible

Maggie Kent

 

In terms of Melissa's replacement, I hope they bring in someone from outside; not only would I like to see who they would choose, I don't think any of the meteorologists should move to different slots.
