is she going to another station in the market?

 

"As fulfilling as my work here at WTTG has been, I am very excited to begin this new journey that involves my passions and will make a difference in our community. I am proud to have been part of such an awesome team of creative and motivated journalists." Also says she'll make her announcement about her plans soon.

 

To me, that translates into her contract not being renewed.

Well it was announced that Shiba Russell is becoming an evening anchor at WXIA. She is currently the morning anchor.

Shiba Russel will always be known as the woman who replaces legendary female anchors in different markets. Well to me anyway.

I would have to agree. She starting to be typecast where she replace iconic anchors, and let hope she stays in this role.

A couple of talent shuffles in the Memphis market:

 

WHBQ reporter Scott Madaus has been promoted to morning news anchor (4:30-6am) for Good Morning Memphis. His first day in his new position is Monday.

 

Also, WREG announced during Claudia Barr's final newscast tonight that Stephanie Scurlock will take over as the new evening news anchor for the station. She was recently the morning news co-anchor for WREG's Daybreak.

Crazy story in Denver with the sudden resignation of KDVR reporter Heidi Hemmat (tracing back to threats on her life by a business owner under investigation for consumer fraud); who went on to suggest KDVR management didn't take the threats seriously (in an update to this story, the management denies Hemmat's claims that they ignored those charges)

At least in Atlanta she's not replacing anyone legendary. She's replacing the person who is replacing the legendary anchor. ;)

11 and 13 own the market. Not a surprise.

 

That makes S!nclair's retrans fight with Block/Buckeye Cable two years ago even more pointless and stupid.

Barrington had a major hand in sinking WNWO into irrelevance. Sinclair was only the death knell.

WNWO is in so much turmoil, the ratings, layoffs, etc. You want my advice, here's what Sinclair should do with WNWO... SELL THE STATION! Sell WNWO to another

broadcast group that wants to revamp and revive NBC 24 and dig themselves out of the ratings slump.

WBAL looks to be airing two specials on December 7 regarding Hairspray LIVE. The first one is "Hairspray: From Baltimore to Broadway and Beyond" at 7PM and at 7:30 "Countdown to Hairspray Live". Obviously the first one is local but is the Countdown show an optional program by NBC?
