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.

I just saw another new promo for the new 11pm show that starts tomorrow night. The new set also debuts then and there will be a lot of news in the first 5 minutes that includes the 7 day forecast so viewers don't have to wait until the end of the show for it.

Do you think that the new FOX29 News at 11pm will get good ratings? I watched it and it is fast paced which makes the broadcast interesting. I think that it will be in 3rd place or a close second because the 10pm ratings are very strong.

It looks like Kacie McDonnell is returning to the east coast. Maybe she will go back to FOX and be the new sports anchor since Howard Eskin is leaving?

She's going to be a sports reporter in New England.

Mike Jerrick has been suspended for a week

 

Can't say I'm surprised or shocked.

It was inevitable and Mike kinda got what came to him, since it was one of the 7 Words You Can't Say on Television.

Thank God it was for a week though.

 

In the possibly immortal words of the great(?) Tommy Wizeau:

"IT'S BOWLSHET!"

Well, I know they're two different stations, but Greg Kelly from WNYW has said way worse than that and was able to get away with it:

Innuendo and crude humor is one thing. As a WGN Morning News viewer, I know that stuff well. Straight-up saying 'bullshit' on-air is a suspendable offense, no matter the context. As much as we may agree with Mike's assertion, the suspension is justified.

One small thing...

 

The clip in question was from MONDAY. And nobody cared until it went viral on Tuesday morning. Had FTVLive not posted it, I bet he'd have been fine.

 

Not if people had been watching that day and contacted fox 29 to tell them what mike said. Im sure the people in the control room heard as well so likely he was talked to about it after the show.

Now is he suspended because he said what we all are thinking, his language or both?

Language most likely, though I wouldn't be surprised if it's both.

 

Have to agree, as much as he was correct, an outburst like that on the air is suspendable. Now, of course, this was the same company that let Ernie Anastos go pretty unscathed after he told us to keep fornicating poultry.
