The CBS 3 Eyewitness News Thread

Recommended Posts

I don't know why the commenters on this thread are so negative about CBS 3.

 

We watch CBS 3 at 6 and 11 about 85% of the time, 6 ABC about 15% of the time, NBC 10 almost never and FOX 29 never.

 

I almost never watch the morning news on any station, except maybe 6 ABC on weekends, and then only rarely.

Kyw getting a set makover yet? How far along is cbs in giving them bew sets etc

 

 

They desperately need one. I actually like WCBS’ & WJZ news sets. CBS needs to start dumping a ton of money into KYW.

I don't know if CBS is going to spend anymore money on KYW's news operation, given how bad it is.

Shutting down news operations at CBS 3 is off the table imo. What they need to do is fire a lot of people and bring in new people to run the news division and perhaps the station and bring in new on-air talent.

You're the only one that's suggested shutting down news ops.

You’ve suggested shutting down or outsourcing KYW and WTXF’s news operations several times. It was never “on the table” to begin with — no one at CBS, Fox, or at the local level has brought it up. You’re the only person who (stupidly, I must add) suggested shutting down a news operation.

Is there a reason this guy is allowed to keep trolling this thread and the Fox29 thread? I mean, I disagreed with someone in another thread once and was sanctioned immediately for being argumentative (which I was not and the sanction was later overturned).

 

He was the same way over on the yahoo group for Philadelphia TV news pre-TVNewsTalk, with the same user name and all.

Frankly, I’d like to see him be threadbanned or at least put on Moderated Posts.

I don't get all the KYW hate either. Ukee and new-Jessica are fine. Kate Bilo is very good, as is Don Bell. I'll admit the field reporters vary wildly in quality, but they're just reporting the facts on the ground, not doing in-depth analysis. I prefer the more upbeat coverage. I don't need if-it-bleeds-it-leads and over-dramatizing everything. 

 

I think what's killing them is that familiarity is what drives local ratings and high turnover is killing them there. Especially in the mornings, although I was thrilled when Meisha Johnson moved on. I know guys loved her because she was supposed to be a "bombshell" but I found her cloying, annoying and fake. Rahel Solomon was a huge upgrade over her predecessor, but now she's gone. I don't get why everyone here seems to hate Jim Donovan so much. Just because he's not in the traditional anchor mode? I like that's off-beat and has a personality. Too many stiffs behind the anchor desk. 

 

I switch between Ch. 3 and Ch. 10 in the morning, and honestly, except for money spent on production, I don't see a huge difference in their quality. Vai is a better newsman than Jim Donovan? How so? Bill Henly is likable, but so is Katie Fehlinger. I don't get the purpose 2 weather people at the same time serves. NBC10 news is prettier, but I don't see why that makes it better.

Morning anchor (and Philadelphia native) Rahel Solomon is leaving CBS3 for CNBC.

Big follow up.

 

WCBS's AM reporter Janelle Burrell will be traveling down the turnpike to replace Rahel as new AM & midday anchor.

Today (Sunday, June 16) is Chelsea Ingram’s last day as weekend morning meteorologist. On her Facebook post, she said she is not leaving CBS though.

I’m sure Matt Peterson will fill her spot as he is on staff as a fill-in. I wonder if Chelsea is going to one of the other O&Os.

Sad to see her leave from CBS3, but very happy to her she's staying in the Eye's picture. Good luck to Chelsea on her next career destination.

She isn't traveling that far.......

 

 

Down I-95 (Maryland Turnpike) back to Baltimore. Nice pickup for WJZ. I guess it's too early to tell. However, will she do weekend weather?

I always loved watching Chelsea on weekend mornings with Jan Carabeo. They had great chemistry. I'll miss her, but I'm happy she's going back home. Since I have a vacation house in Milton, DE, I'll still be able to watch her on WJZ.
