Meanwhile, just a few miles across town...

 

WAGA wins a 2018 Peabody Award  -- their third after Paradise Saved (1982) and Singled Out (1999) -- for $2 Tests: Bad Arrests

 

UPDATE: Fox 5 will air the $2 Tests stories as a half-hour special this Thursday at 7:00 pm; why didn't WWL do the same for their multi-part "Facing Reality" with Bill Elder (which won that very same Peabody in 1993)?

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

KXAS has found its replacement for the departed Mark Fein on their morning news.  It's Laura Harris, who comes to Fort Worth by way of Atlanta, Charleston (SC), and Tampa.  She will co-anchor with longtime KXASer Deborah Ferguson, making up a rare all-female anchor team in the market.

With the recent shooting at a San Diego area Synagogue, KFMB, CBS-8 San Diego, has decided to not use the name or image of the alleged shooter in stories until the legal proceedings occur.  They state that victims (those injured or just present at the shooting) can be traumatized by the repeated use of the shooter's name or photo.

I have not seen any other San Diego station do the same.

So MSNBC had on Philip Crowther reporting from Caracas, Venezuela.  He was listed as an Associated Press International Affiliate Reporter.  So how is that different from a regular reporter or is he a reporter that is designated for doing live shots for various media entities?

He's been France 24's White House correspondent for years and recently announced on twitter that he'd be reporting for the AP as well. I'm guessing the deal is something along the lines of the latter of what you said- France 24 is his primary employer (and AP affiliate) and while out and about around the world, he can file reports for the AP as well.

So it looks like meteorologists returning to the Hampton Roads region after leaving elsewhere looks like a trend so far (coupling the following with Jeff Edmondson returning to WAVY)

 

Craig Moeller, newly dropped from KSDK in St. Louis, heading back to WVEC to return for a "great opportunity" (WVEC already has 5 meteorologists and per a tweet by Jeff Lawson he's going to be meteorologist number 6)

Adair nearly made the jump to market #3 in 1967. Management at Chicago's WBKB (a year away from becoming WLS) attempted to lure the pair of Doug Adair and Joel Daly. Daly took the bait, developing a 50-year bond with ABC, while Adair stayed put, and became a legend in Ohio.

He was at the helm of the team at WCMH when for pretty much the only time ever they were the clear #1 station.

 

I did not know he had Alzheimer's later in life. That is tough, but at least he is no longer suffering.

So is KFMB going to do this in all shooting cases?

 

Just asking...since I don't want anyone else "traumatized" by the faces of shooting suspects.

An end of an era in Boston television is upon us. Lynch's last night on the sports desk will be on August 15th.

The question is who replaces him: Conventional wisdom would say Friday/Saturday sports anchor Bob Halloran, especially since Josh Brogadir, has been transitioning to general assignment reporting. Does 5 go with the tried and true, as they often do, or go off the board?

While not TV related....this is BIG news out of New Orleans, and proof that good old fashioned demand can overcome the stupidity and short-sightness of a lousy owner....

The Manships created a New Orleans edition of the Advocate in response to the T-P going to a 3-day schedule.  Eventually the T-P relented and went back to publishing 7 days a week.  The Manships ended up selling the Advocate to Georges Media, while retaining WBRZ and KRGV.  Even as the T-P tried to undo the damage, the new Advocate pushed them into 2nd place in New Orleans.

 

Now if only someone can make the other Advance papers (and clusters) great again. 

I know newspapers are a dying industry, but the decent companies are still putting out a quality product while those that slash and burn are getting wha'ts coming to them for their cost-cutting...

Deepest condolences to WALA's recently retired Bob Grip, on the loss of his wife Marie from Pancreatic Cancer.

 

Even WKRG sent their condolences on their facebook page.  Before coming to WALA (and a stint in Virginia Beach), Grip anchored and reported at WKRG in the mid to late 70s...
