David Tillman of KTRK moves from weekends to weekdays at 11 & 4 and is given title of Chief weathercaster. Rachel Briers presumably takes his weekend spot.

Travis said himself that he'll be chief. Where are you hearing about Tillman?

 

EDIT: BOTH are chief? What the hell is that?

Travis is Chief meteorologist while David is chief weathercaster as to why 2 chiefs who knows perhaps for severe weather etc they can tag team.

Hopefully with a better ending.

Here in Portland, WCSH morning co-anchor Lee Nelson and evening co-anchor Cindy Williams have been married for 30 years. Another marital union between morning co-anchor Sharon Rose (now Sharon Rose Vaznis) and reporter Chris Rose ended in divorce. Chris Rose eventually left the station and is now with the University of New England.

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?

Nobody really knows what happened, it caught everyone off guard. For the last time, WSMV is FINE, unlike the general consensus in this board that it isn't, it just needs some fresh blood at the helm.

 

I'm sure she will be able to do great things, the station needed someone with a news background at the helm. The previous GM was a salesman, not a newsman.

 

Something can be said for ratings growth though, and the station seems to be heading back in the right direction even before LaSpina was hired. Bad decisions are the station's downfall but hopefully that won't be the case anymore.

That's what the arrangement was at WJLA when Doug Hill and Bob Ryan were there together.  Doug typically did the noon and 5pm shows while Bob did 6 and 11pm, but working together during any kind of major weather outbreak.

This is something. It's in the Seattle Times (paywall), but KCPQ fired an editor for using doctored video of President Trump.

Had no issues here:

 

https://www.seattletimes.com/entertainment/tv/trump-tongue-trick-lands-seattle-tv-station-q13-fox-in-hot-water/

Quote

The video was changed to make it look as if Trump was sticking his tongue out languidly between sentences. In addition, the colors in the video look more saturated, leading the president’s skin and hair to appear more orange. 

During the speech, Trump said, “Hopefully, we can rise above partisan politics in order to support national security,” before briefly licking his lips and continuing to speak.

In the video broadcast on Q13, it appears that Trump lets his tongue hang out, resting it on his lower lip for an unusually long time.

 

Completely uncacceptable.

Longtime WTTG anchor Tony Perkins announces his departure from the station.  Perkins had worked at WTTG from 1993-1999 before leaving for a stint at Good Morning America, returning to WTTG in 2006 where he most recently worked on Friday & Saturday mornings.  He will continue his afternoon drive radio show with the legendary Donnie Simpson.

Quincy was granted the greenlight of the WSIL deal yesterday.

 

Well, color me surprised. 

 

Not that they'd completed the sale of WSIL earlier today (1/15), But the fact that the FCC has "accepted" the filing of its consummation notice tonight.

 

Since early January, they've only accepted the filings of certain applications relating to the spectrum auction & repacking (i.e., the move of channels/frequencies, etc.) This is because of the prolonged partial government shutdown.

KDFW has posted on their Facebook page that longtime reporter Brandon Todd has been given a co-anchor role.  He will anchor the 4am-6am portion of "Good Day" with Hanna Battah, while longtime "Good Day" anchors Tim Ryan and Lauren Pryzybl will come along for the 6am-10am part.  Congrats to Brandon.  He's a good reporter, but he'll have to put his alarm clock on for a lot earlier now.

I wished Brandon would anchor with Clarice at 5:30 and 10pm. KDFW hasn't had co-anchor since Baron James left long ago.

Pour some sweet tea and warm up the Jacuzzi, because Chris Hanson is in town...

But the only thing young and bouncy are his checks.

This reminds me of a hooker i knew from Russia...

She wouldn't take Czech's either...
