Karen Thomas is over at WCAU now.

She did the weather this morning and Violeta Yas from Telemundo 62 did the evening forecast.

So far it appears WVIT, KNBC and WCAU have gotten these Jeeps. This one however does not look like it has the marine radar.

I'm not quite sure yet as I just saw a photo. From the looks of it has an external antenna for LiveU (or whatever bonded unit they use), a receive antenna for TV and an uplink dish.

 

Other NBC stations seem to have gotten the Wranglers for weather use with built in marine radar and weather stations but this one just looks like it's for news.

They also have this, by the way. Maybe it's for the parking lot on "First Alert Weather Days".[ATTACH=full]2542[/ATTACH]

 

That's at the Blue Cross Riverrink at Penns Landing. They are the media partner of the Riverfront Corporation.

Noticed some key personalities have had off for a day or two this week. I wonder if it's an "early" weekend in anticipation of having to work all day Saturday (as in wall-to-wall coverage).

Most likely. They gave both Bill Henley and Glenn Schwartz off yesterday. You figure Saturday is going to be an all hands on deck sort of day.

If I'm not mistaken, it has almost been a year since Renee was placed on leave. It is a shame that this is how her time at the station ended. She was there from the switch from CBS to NBC, the competitive rise of 10's news department with her and Mendte, to the GE cutbacks and 10 forced into standardization.

 

Starting last week, I started to notice Jim and Jacqueline at 4, 6, and 11 (which had been the case for a while), and Keith with either Denise or Rosemary at 5.

More then likely they'll move Jacqueline off the 5 pm and have her permanent at 4, 6 & 11. Denise or Rosemary or an outsider will replace Jacqueline at 5.

Seven months she's been on leave.

 

The Jim and Jackie pairing at 4/6/11 and Keith and Denise/Rosemary/solo at 5 has been going on for months.

 

Honestly, I'd like to see them give Tracy a chance on the 5pm. It'd be nice to have a familiar face in the evening again, and I enjoyed when she was paired with Keith in the mornings.

If I were to guess, Rosemary or Denise (I'm leaning towards Denise simply based on seniority) will get the 5PM slot and Lauren Mayk fills whoever's former shift.

Was she suspended with pay? If so she must of been a drain of resources. With her seniority they probably could hire a few new reporters or two anchors.
