Oh, I think I figured why Chelsea Ingram returned to WJZ, her social media bio states she’s getting her M.S. in Environmental Science and Policy at Johns Hopkins.

Tiffany Savona was filing in for Katie Fehlinger today. I wonder if she will be the eventual replacement, since Matt Peterson has the permanent spot of weekend morning now.

It looks like the 8 a.m. newscast on Sunday's is cut down to a half hour. Since September 29, they have been showing an infomercial for DraftKings.

Prolly something to do with online sports betting which is legal in Jersey and I think now PA. I've noticed some of that as of late with the Philly stations.

The DraftKings show now airs at 8AM, followed by a local sports betting show at 8:30, so the Sunday morning news is from 6AM to 8AM only.

CBS3 has had a few different meteorologists filling in this week on the evening broadcasts.  On Sunday, they had Vanessa Murdock from CBS NY do the forecast remotely.   Monday & Tuesday, Justin Drabick filled in.  Today, Chelsea Ingram is back in Philly to do the forecasts.  I believe Kate Bilo is on vacation and I guess Lauren Casey is as well.

No wonder. They have 3 full time meteorologists.  I mean other CBS O&O's  have at least 4 to 5.  At least the good news is that they didn't have to go far at all.

Is Matt Peterson still doing AM's?

Matt's been doing the weekday mornings and Tiffany Savona has been doing the weekend mornings.   Tiffany did do the weather this morning (Thursday), and it looks like Matt will be doing the evening forecast today.

Tammie Souza is filling in on weather tonight (Saturday) on CBS 3.

Still disappointed in how NBC10 just unceremoniously dumped her. 
 

She’d be a great fit at 3. Although I like Bilo she doesn’t quite fit the chief meteorologist weekday evening weather person position. Made no sense when they dumped Orr. Bilo did well in the mornings. Same with Lauren Casey, she’s not evening material either.

I'm only assuming that she's on freelance for now?  She would be a good addition to CBS3 if they could get her..

She would be a perfect addition for CBS3. (see below)

That's shocking. I never knew (or at least forgot) that WCAU recently dropped her. I haven't watched it during the evenings in a while, so AFAIK I thought she was still on the First Alert Weather lineup up till now.

I originally disagreed, but after some thought, you're kind of right. Tammie is definitely a better fit for the chief title (she did wield it strongly at WCAU). Since Bilo is chief currently, a move to mornings would be a big demotion (unless she wants more family time). (again, see below.)

 

In fact, if/when Tammie is hired sometime soon, here are the timeslots I'd give for them: 

Tammie: 5, 10 (on WPSG) and 11

Kate Bilo: 4 and 6 (her bubbly personality fits better here) 

Matt Peterson: weekday mornings 

Lauren Casey: weekend mornings 

Tiffany Savona: weekend evenings

(Casey and Savona will switch as I feel their respective timeslots should be reflective of their personalities)

With CBSN Philly, is there a possibility that the CW Philly's 10pm could be replaced by a local CBSN Philly rebroadcast (similar to WLNY and WSBK)?

Well since WBZ just started a 10pm newscast on WSBK, I doubt it.

Has Lauren Casey been on an extended vacation or is she not with CBS anymore? Tammie Souza has been in her time slot the past two weekends.

She said on her Facebook that she's been going through a health issue but hopes to be back on the air soon.

Congratulations to Ms. Llarisa. Hope she lasts a long while. At least the station will have a larger group of meteorologists now and for the foreseeable future.
