Joyce Evans is retiring from FOX 29....last day is August   https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2020/8/7/signing-off-in-philly

I'm pretty sure they're actually upstairs in the main news studio. I guess Studio 29 is getting a makeover.

Site is a mess right now. Looks like someone's grandmother slopped together a Geocities page. The clunk is just awful and it's really never a good idea to hide the navigation pane on a desktop site. That works for mobile sites cause screen real estate is so precious but for a desktop site, some sort of active navigation is nice.

 

On the plus side though, going back to fox29.com is great. It rolls off the tongue and saves a few keystrokes (although that URL always redirected you to the site).

I agree with you. I never understood the whole MyFox thing

I guess screw you Scott Williams huh.

if he is smart he would have gotten a clause in his contract ala audrey puente when she was bumped off from weekday mornings at wcbs that if he is demoted the contract is void; heck i would negoate that in the event that if i were demoted from chief meterologist for the sake of bring in some one to be chief i would want my contract voided and be paid either 3 months or how everlong my non compete would be

Whose Scott Williams? (I'm being sarcastic).

 

Honestly a great pickup by 29. 3 was foolish to let her go, and while I like Kate, I don't think she's ready to be chief yet.

 

Scott never caught on for me, nor has Iain.

Is Scott Williams leaving Fox 29 or is he staying?

According to Philly.com, Scott will do the 6PM newscast.

http://www.philly.com/philly/entertainment/celebrities/20150917_Sunshine_on_the_radar__Meteorologist_Kathy_Orr_goes_to_Fox29.html

Note the article says the announcement was made with a short statement. Actually, they made a big announcement, as Good Day teased a big announcement all morning and finally brought Kathy out from behind a curtain. Everyone hugged her and I think Jerrick even kissed her on the cheek. I don't think Bob Kelly was there, though, strangely.

Nothing strange about it. Bob is on vacation this week.

I thought I'd seen him him earlier in the week, and going by his twitter page, he was on the show Monday & Tuesday. I guess I hadn't noticed him being off later in the week.

Kathy Orr has joined Fox 29 to do weather on their 5 and 10PM newscasts.

Few thoughts:

 

- I'm intrigued to see if this tandem of Kathy and Scott will be the same as Cecily/Adam and Hurricane/Sheena.

 

- Could Fox 29 get in the midday newscast routine? Because Scott can easily be placed there, in the same line Hurricane is used in the 11, 4, and 6 PM newscasts.

 

- Bare with me as I'm not a regular of Fox 29 Morning News and Good Day... Could they use another weather anchor in the mornings? Since 29 goes from 4-10 AM, it's hard to see Sue doing the weather and switching to being a Good Day host. 29 can have a weather anchor do 4-7 AM and Sue can take over from 7-10.

Lauren Johnson will also sometimes do the 9AM hr with Mike and Alex, but I think she's currently on vacation. Jenn Frederick did the 9AM hour at the desk today.

Sue also does later weather hits on the hour. I don't know if they're pre-taped, but I've seen her do updates as late as 3PM. That's a long day.
