I can see having 2 if there's a special/severe situation, but in regular plain-vanilla weather days, the #2 would have to do something else (a-la Samantha on KXAS) like swap out every other weather segment, or one be there while the other gets a swig of something or goes to the bathroom.

WNYT does this too - Bob Kovachick and Paul Caiano do weather at the 4:00-6:00pm slots. I bet this is either to force Bob K into retirement or they give the opportunity of having one weather anchor in the studio while the other reports live from a remote location (an example was Bob at Albany’s Alive at Five a few weeks ago).

Former NBC News correspondent Richard Valeriani has died at 85 (Valeriani was a correspondent covering the White House, served as a senior diplomatic correspondent and covered the March in Selma, AL {and was pretty seriously injured from an assault occurring there})

Why do we need TWO weather anchors on the same show?

 

Sister stations WCAU & WRC also follows this same practice.

 

To prove that TV weather is more accurate and more friendly than internet or smartphone weather.

 

It's one of the few beaches left where the weather battle can still be fought.

 

Root for them...or they may just be gone soon and replaced by some AI app named "Doris"..

When WBAL did it it was always the male meteorologist in studio tossing to the female who’d do today’s weather and would interview some business. It stopped when I guess they went more news intensive in the AM.

Then...you have stations like WPMI that make you keep score with their morning anchor team, since they have Kelly Foster doing double duty as a meteorologist and co-anchor to Darwin Singleton two days a week, and as a co-anchor joined by Jake Dunne the other 3 (who works on the weekends and fills in for the often-missing chief Chris Dunn).

 

Translation...they were too cheap to hire a replacement for Kelly Jones when she left and gave Kelly Foster some anchor time....

Ah. The meteorologist co anchoring. This is KSLA with Ron Young on the 9am newscast.

This is for the main AM show 5 days a week!

 

It gets even dicier on the noon show where it could be either Darwin or Kelly solo anchoring, with either Jake or Kelly as the meteorologist....and some days Kelly Foster does both by herself!

WFXR (Roanoke) sports anchor Jermaine Ferrell is leaving the station. He will be joining WRIC here in Richmond as weekend sports anchor.

Speaking of WRIC, evening anchor Christina Feerick will be leaving the station - and Richmond television - at the end of August. Before WRIC, she was on rival WWBT.

Oh, and speaking of WWBT: I forgot to mention that Anthony Antoine has joined the station recently as anchor/reporter. He comes from WCIA in Central Illinois (Champaign/Urbana/Springfield). He left WCIA last month.

KMOV new logo? KMOV anchor/reporter Emily Pritchard posted on her InstaStory (@emilyjpritch) a station vehicle with a new paint job. Also looks like a new “News 4” logo. Might be something to look out for in the future.

You know that minister that wanted $54 million for a Falcon private jet? He’s now looking for $1.5 million to go 4K HDR world wide. Now that price seems a bit low.

So what will KMOV call themselves? CBS4 or KMOV4?

 

I would "SuperSkew" the branding to female 13-65...and call it...

 

"4-V"

 

You may now ponder.

While he’s at it, Jesse should probably donate the HD cameras to Ernest Angley. How are people supposed to get swindled without a pretty picture? :p

I wonder if someone's leaving or are they just adding a third anchor. If someone's leaving, it couldn't be Ashley since she *just* moved to the anchor seat...

Just a reminder. Tomorrow, former WJBF NewsChannel 6 anchor/reporter Archith Seshadri is to make his game show debut as a contestant on The $100,000 Pyramid at 9/8 Central on ABC.

https://www.wjbf.com/news/top-videos/former-newschannel-6-anchor-conestant-on-100-000-pyramid_20180622221108/1256948810

 

I'd hardly call him a rememberable talent of that station, but he wants everyone to think he made a lasting impression. Archith has the most over-inflated ego of any news person I've ever seen. It's all about him, all the time. He most recently worked for Al Jazeera America, but since then it's unclear what he's doing now. Either way, he probably called WJBF to let them know to do a story on him. Good luck to him on Pyramid, but then again, let's hope when they come to the part where they ask questions about him he doesn't fill up the rest of the show with how important he thinks he is.
