Former WJBK reporter and "Crime Watch Daily" host Andrea Isom is joining WXYZ in Detroit as an Investigative Reporter... this gives them 5 reporters for that beat...

 

Well yaaaa.

They have 5 reporters on that beat because EVERYTHING in that market /community is always "Under Investigation".

The Local Goverment...

Under Investigation....

The Crime....

Under Investigation....

Water works...

Under Investigation...

Arson Fires.......

Etc.

 

What would we get if we googled "Detroit+ Investigation(s)"

 

Holy Body By Fisher!!!

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

We have a new N.D. at WDAF-TV. We hired the former KTVU news director Dana McDaniel . She visited the station a few weeks ago.

 

I think Dana may be in for a little culture shock.

Try not to be too hard on her.

OJ Tropicana I mean Omar Jimenez of WBAL has released a music video entitled Ready For It. Features him in and around a live truck at various locations looking to go live. Unsurprisingly it looks like they either hid the logos or used an unmarked WBAL truck.

I didn't realize until now, but former FOX 46 chief meteorologist Brian Basham is now the weekend meteorologist for WCCB Charlotte. [MEDIA=twitter]873600624952258560[/MEDIA]

That's actually not too bad. I wonder how many journalists besides Robin Meade have singing/rapping careers.

 

What he did for Mother's Day last year.

Also in WJZ news they are loosing an anchor who has been with them for a few years. Said anchor is heading to KNTV for an AM and Mid Day anchoring position.

 

You can probably figure out who but since this was only posted on a Instagram I'll wait.

 

Also: Maybe it's just me but Baltimore seems like a market where people are more willing to stay in once they settle down roots (get married, having a family). If your young and single you'll likely move up the ranks.

ftvlive is reporting that KPNX weekend meteorologist Dr Matt Pace and KPNX Chief Investigative Reporter Wendy Halloran have been let go from the station. I thought Dr Matt Price was a solid meteorologist (although recently he had been copying James Quinones' lingo which sounds silly). Oh yes, and KPNX has replaced Dr Matt Pace with former Fox 10 reporter Kristen Keough, starting tomorrow.

Dr Matt should get off the wx set by sundown...

 

Kristen has guns and 2 (big) sisters....

Can you give us a hint as to who's leaving. And I'm wonder the anchor leaving KNTV.

Ah since his Instagram is public it's Marcus Washington. Last day at WJZ is July 8 and first day at KNTV is July 24.

 

 

Sam Brock is their male anchor in that hour.

Here is a gem from WNWO in Toledo (courtesy of FTVLive). This is what happens when you let another station (WSBT in South Bend) produce the news segs while the weather segments are in Toledo....

As if this wasn't bad enough, I have two other gems for you which are equally as bad.....

It probably wouldn't happen, but I would laugh if Gray were to acquire the NBC affiliation for another WTVG subchannel.

Anybody else feel terrible for the fairly good on her feet Meteorologist who keeps running into these rather mindless issues?
