Any idea where the weather shift leaves the 3 & 4pm newscasts (and maybe the 11)?

 

My bet would be Collin Myers for 3 & 4pm and Loresca at 11.

Think it’s safe to say just for WMUR. All other stations got Diagrid 2.0. 

 

So, basically, the guy didn't want to single out WMUR by name? Fair enough.

It is with a very heavy heart I tell you that Doug Johnson, the longtime Chief Weathercaster at KPRC (NBC) Houston has passed away today. Doug anchored the weather at KPRC for 33 years until his retirement in 1994. Doug along with the late, great Ron Stone were two great KPRC legends throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s until Ron's retirement in 1992. From hurricanes, thunderstorms, hail and hot sunny days... Doug was there to cover it all.

 

Tribute of Doug Johnson is on the KPRC's website. Condolences goes out to Doug's family and to his extended family at KPRC NBC 2. Rest in peace, Doug and Godspeed. And say hello to Ron Stone from all of us.

Collin posted on his fb that he will be doing the 3 pm show Wednesday thru Friday and continue to do weekend mornings. So Monday and Tuesday will be someone else.

Probably a split between David Tillman & Myers?

 

Something tells me that they're not going to hire a new fifth weather anchor in the near term.

They recently hired Rachel Briers who joined last month from last KWES. I had originally thought Collin would take over Elita’s old schedule of 11a, 3 & 4p until I saw his FB post. So wonder if Rachel will do 11a & 4p M-F and add the 3p on Monday’s & Tuesday’s? Or perhaps she takes David’s weekend slot and David is moved to weekdays?

Congratulations to Rich Morgan for sticking it through thick and thin. Through good owners (Williamson, Media General) and bad (Piedmont), he has been a legend at WKBN.

The WLWT weeknight anchors are now engaged to each other.  They have been dating for a while.  Congratulations to them.

I suppose they’ll be the Chet and Nat of Cincinnati.

Or maybe the Garland Robinette & Angela Hill of Cincinnati...

 

The main difference, however, between the Dardis/Paolello relationship and that of the aforementioned Garland/Angela and Chet/Nat relationships, is that Dardis and Paolello each have children from previous marriages/relationships (info courtesy of the bios on the WLWT website). So there's that....

You cant forget Doug and Mona, who worked in Cleveland AND Columbus!

 

But that one didn't last as they eventually divorced and Mona married Mike James who used to run NewsBlues and had her own grammar column....

WSMV has a new General Manager

(TVNewsCheck says she's leaving WIVB/WNLO, but she was bounced from there soon after Nexstar took over the station from Media General)

 

I can only hope she can get WSMV back on their feet again, but her track record speaks otherwise....

 

The question is did the last guy quit, or did Meredith pull the plug?

Or how about Vince Gerasole & Heidi Umbhau?

 

 

Look at how she looks over at him at :16. Awww.

 

They’re still married.

If we're talking about WBBM veterans, you gotta remember Mary Ann & Jay. The whole marketing campaign of the short-lived duo was based on their marriage. Also, that theme... 😍

Chet and Nat were married to others before they were married to each other and Chet had kids with his first wife. Heck, Jacobson was the last name of Nat's first husband!

 

On the Boston tangent, Phil Lipof went down a similar path with his wife Juli (Auclair), first at WRNN (they met while detouring that way) then at WHDH back in the 90s.

In a temporary schedule switch, KCTV has moved Inside Edition to 4:30 p.m., so they can air Chiefs specials at 6:30. Presumably this will last until the Chiefs lose.

Mark Nolan just tweeted that tonight's 6pm newscast will be his last on WOIO.  I believe his co-anchor Romona Robinson has already left the station.

Carl Monday has also posted a farewell video on social media as well.  He was at Cleveland 19 since 2007.

From her twitter page, it looks like somewhere in the middle of December must of been her last time at 19.  On WKYC youtube page in November of 2018  her and Tim White did a throwback.
