ABC 7 Eyewitness News thread

Recommended Posts

Jonathan Novak is gone from this market but not from broadcasting.  He was not a good fit with the existing news teams at ABC7LA. More often than not his humor comments were followed by dead silence from those at the desk and the viewers at home. He is a better fit with a midwestern audience. Alex Chaney is a perfect fit for the LA market, although I’m not convinced his suits are all that important.  On the subject of Dallas leaving soon, I highly doubt he’s even thinking such thoughts.  He replaced George Fishbeck who left the station as a very senior citizen. His personality was as distinctive as Dallas’s but in an entirely different way.  The ABC7LA weather master who takes over is not any of the crew currently in the wings. They will need to be a star in their own lane, think Sam Champion or Stephanie Abrams. ABC7LA is the number 1 station and it will need to retain that status.

In other news, there's finally a new hire to start filling all the spots left empty since last year:

Christiane Cordero is coming home to LA and joining ABC 7 in August from WCCO in Minneapolis. (link is to her IG post)

I remember her from during and before the station's George Floyd coverage and it's great seeing her come home.


As for Michelle Tuzee, if anyone had any further thoughts on if she might appear again in some capacity, her bio has been scrapped (officially in mid-June).

All the best to her and hope she is doing well.
