Angie Goff leaving WRC effective today.  I'm honestly surprised, I know she's definitely a viewer favorite here in DC, going back to her days across town at WUSA.

Looks like she'll be moving across town again to FOX 5.  I don't know where she would end up there, I'd imagine she would only want to leave WRC if she were up for a weekday anchor gig, much like Annie Yu leaving WTTG for WUSA.

Very sad news indeed.   Next to Dick Goddard, Don Webster was a fixture of WEWS, from hosting Upbeat, and even serving as the stations' general manager in the 1980s (when he ceded weather duties to Tom Tasslemyer).  He returned to weather in 1989 and was the chief meteorologist for the next decade until his retirement.

It's good to hear that Mark didn't disappear either...could he be going back to mornings?

Huge loss for Cleveland television with Don's passing.

I don't see any word of "retirement" on there.

Agreed it does not say that but the anchors both state that they are "celebrating Steve Fiorina as he move into the next chapter of his life"  There are also posts from other 10News coworkers about his retirement.

KTUL meteorologist Clint Boone has jumped ship to KJRH, joining former colleague Mike Collier.

He also joins Taft Price who is also a former KTUL meteorologist there as well.

What is going on with KTUL's weather staff? It seems like ever since Jennifer Zeppelin left Channel 8, they've lost meteorologists left and right and most of which have gone over to KJRH

Contracts running out and Sinclair-related issues perhaps?

I think the issues going on in Hunt Valley has to do with all of that, No one wants to work for a Sinclair-owned station and I really can't blame them for leaving the Sinclair stations while they still have a chance to do so

New M&A from Quincy.

They've announced this morning that they're acquiring the Harrisburg, IL ABC affiliate, WSIL from Mel Wheeler.

WSIL serves the Paducah, KY, Cape Girardeau, MO, Carbondale, IL market. The term of the deal weren't disclosed.

This comes after they'd announced that they're getting KVOA from Cordillera back on Monday.

Quincy was granted the greenlight of the WSIL deal yesterday.

Cordillera wasn't greenlighted though yet?

The KVOA deal to Quincy hasn't been greenlighted yet. 

And the big Scripps deal hasn't been greenlighted.

Given that big $520M price tag, they'll probably have to wait for the DOJ to give them an "early termination", before they get the greenlight from the FCC.

Wait, what? Quincy is not getting KVOA after all? That opens the door.

I mean't that deal is still pending. It hasn't been approved yet.

They wrote the paperwork a couple of months ago. It takes time to get approval.

Well, come midnight it looks like we're in for another government shutdown, I would assume the cable networks are going to stay live into the overnight hours and the weekend evenings again?

I still think that Quincy will use KVOA as trade bait with Nexstar. I'm sure the Oakleys would love to enter Des Moines with the pending Tribune divestitures.

Not sure what is going on with meteorologists leaving KTUL I think it’s mainly issues with the management and Sinclair.

I havn't heard of anything.   (I Would think you would want to coordinate it with the other tv outlets so viewers only have to do it once)
