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?

It's moving to the afternoon slot vacated by 'Millionaire' and company. Same thing for WABC and WTVD.

Ducis Rodgers' 6pm scrabble-board message is "goodbye basement studio", so chances are we'll be seeing a return to the studio for sportscasts in the near future. 

 

I'll miss the messages. They hearkened back to the "call from Accuweather" clouds formerly in the weathercasts that went out with Dave Roberts.

It was getting harder for me to read the scrabble board anyway, as they shrunk the screen to put in those sports betting ads.  😜

Sharrie just said “Brian and Sarah are off” at 4:30. I guess that means Sarah is the new 4pm anchor, like we thought. 

Maybe we’ll get an official announcement Monday?

I was checking the listings for this weekend and I noticed that World News Tonight is being pre-empted on Saturdays in favor of an hour-long 6:00PM newscast (at least this and next Saturday). This was listed on both TV Passport and On TV Tonight. I'll have to watch for myself to see if this is true.

Their website shows the usual half-hour at 6pm for this Saturday, but an hour at 6pm on the 5th. Looks like they are the only O&O doing this if they actually are.

I didn’t see the beginning, but Jaclyn Lee is co-anchoring with Gray Hall this morning. She can’t be filling in for Nydia, because she’s only on Sunday mornings (unless she’s adding Saturday mornings). Is this just for Memorial Day Weekend, or a permanent change?

The open was the old open. At the top of the hour Gray said, “Jaclyn Lee joins us”, and Jaclyn said, “so happy to join you this morning”.

Scrabble-board I-team update- last night while in studio, to close out the sportscast at 6, Ducis showed another scrabble-board message (I believe regarding the Sixers). I'm glad it's sticking around, at least for now. It's a very quaint, channel 6-y little nugget I appreciate.

Jaclyn Lee anchored again with Gray last Saturday morning. Wonder if she is permanent and if they are going to stick with two different co-anchors for Gray, one on Saturday and one on Sunday, or if one of them will move to evenings.
 

Wonder what’s going on with the 4pm. When Shirleen left, her replacement was named in 4 months. When Monica left, her replacement was named in 5 months. It’s now been 6.5 months since Jeanette left.

Interesting fill-in tonight: Matt O'Donnell is in for Jim Gardner at 6. 

 

Anyway, it's been around 30 weeks since Jeannette left and there's still no official replacement. Sarah has subbed at least one time all of those weeks (or nearly all of them; I can't remember a week she was off every day). I wonder if they are just waiting for the new voiceovers to announce it? Currently CVD only does the opens and isn't used for anything else. I would hope they don't use the VA's that do the station promos and closing announcements; I don't think their voice would go well with MCTYW.

He's on again at 11, too.  Wonder who will be in for him in the morning?  I'm on summer break now as a teacher so I won't see the early edition for a few months 🙂

Nydia was on this morning. Interesting that Rick or Sharrie didn’t sub, or even Brian.

 

As for the 4pm, could it be possible that the spot is going to an outside person? Sarah has filled the spot every day she was on, with the exception of one week when Sharrie did the 4pm while Sarah was the feature anchor subbing for Alicia at 4pm/5pm. And Sharrie has done the majority of Fridays at 4pm. Unless they are still trying to figure out weekends, hence the holding pattern? 🤷🏻‍♂️

Yeah, LOL, at the end of the 6pm, Cecily said it was past his bedtime and he promised he would be awake for the 11.

I don’t think it would make sense for it to go to an outside person (or really anyone except Sarah), considering how many times she has filled in. Then again, though, after Monica left, Sarah filled in at 5pm most of the time, but the spot went to Sharrie.
