I worked with a news anchor who battled an alcohol addiction. It's not just about someone having too much fun and getting carried away, there sometimes are much deeper issues we don't know about. My c

I wish, but no because the line of scrimmage is an invisible line and only appears in broadcasts of football games. Hasnt stopped commercials from featuring someone lifting the line of scrimmage and putting it farther back

Even a grumpy old salt like me thinks that's pretty badass.

 

But if they accidentally fly over an NFL game do they get the line of scrimmage in the shot?

 

Eat just meant that if the helicopters mapping system is so hi tech that it would automatically insert the correct line of scrimmage on screen.

Same set as before, only with an array of monitors as a backdrop.

Yes, and it's unlikely that KFOR will get a new set until the new building is constructed. I should have elaborated that what Wes Milbourne inferred was that preparations were ongoing at the site of the new facility in the lead-up to the start of the main construction process. So it took almost two years to get construction on the new KFOR/KAUT building to even begin.

Maybe it was the current set/building's way of telling KFOR to hurry the heck up with the new building.. Could be a giant fire trap before too long :-P

OOOOKAY, odd use of that emoji to follow that rib. But since no one got hurt in this incident, they did have a little levity with the thing on Wednesday's edition of KAUT's Rise and Shine, actually playing "We Didn't Start the Fire" by Billy Joel at one point during the show.

Well, it looks like Ruben Galvan has returned to San Diego and resumed his position at XETV. Saw him reporting from Comic Con this morning. I had also seen marching in the pride parade on Saturday but I didn't think anything of it. Jim Patton and Lynda Martin also marched.

So can we all assume Ruben has completed his "self discovery" tour?

What a crock of doo doo.

Galvan is lucky as hell XETV is taking him back.

Another one gone, the weekend morning meteorologist Smith left unexpectedly not too long ago too. It's like a mass exodus at that station.

 

Michael Smith is now at WIAT 42 (CBS) in Birmingham - Tuscaloosa - Anniston.

Good news: A major job opening has been filled at WAGA!

 

Bad news: It's not Stephany Fisher (yet!), but Alyse Eady is coming from Little Rock to succeed Gurvir Dhindsa on Good Day Atlanta: http://radiotvtalk.blog.ajc.com/2016/07/21/alyse-eady-takes-gurvir-dhindsas-spot-on-good-day-atlanta/

 

But I know very, very soon, Fox 5 will finally make the announcement all of Atlanta's been waiting for for a full year now.

KSWB FOX 5 San Diego anchor Erica Fox will be leaving the station at the end of the week. She will be moving to Louisville, Kentucky to be closer to her husband and family. No word on who will replace her on the news at 9 am and 1pm.

Former WBAL and WBFF anchor Marianne Bannister's "Claire Marie Foundation" she created after her daughter died of adolescent melanoma got a PSA done by the cast of The Big Bang Theory. One of her relatives in California ran into their producers and they were touched with her story and decided to do something about it. You can view the PSA here: http://clairemariefoundation.org/

Kimi Evans, formerly of KFMB and XETV just popped up during the 11am news on KNSD. I'm not sure if she is freelancing or is a permanent part of the weather team. Interesting to note that the midday anchors/weather anchor are off the midday show today.

 

She just popped up again on the 5p. She doesn't look as hot on Ch-39....she looks tired....and the dress is not doing her any favors.

 

Bummer.

Well, she's no Dagmar Midcap...That's for sure. IDK, everytime I see her on KNSD, she seems out of place. It's not because I was used to seeing her on 8, but her presentation/personality just doesn't mesh with the dry-ish personalities over at NBC.

apparently things are worse for WMGT then i thought,

 

First Morning Met. Marco LA Manno left 2 months ago to go to SNN in Sarasota, FL Kristen Kennedy is his replacement

 

then Chief Meteorologist Chris Simmons Left 2 Weeks ago, No Replacement has been named

 

then just last week, 2 days before Taylor Terrell's death, Weekend Anchor/Reporter Alexa Rodriguez is leaving for a station in Greenville-spartanburg SC in August. (WHNS is that Station)

 

Plus their Longtime Chief Photographer Robert Hughes Died last month

DCRTV reports that longtime WUSA 9 morning anchor Andrea Roane has been demoted from the morning and noon news, to strictly doing the noon news.

 

As a DC native, this one really pisses me off. I grew up watching her originally on the 6 and 11pm news with Gordon Peterson, later moving to mornings with Mike "Buck" Buchanan, later Mike Walter, and I was so happy to see her again when I came back home for good last spring.
