I don't know whether this has been covered here or anywhere else but KWKT has a 6:00pm newscast now and a lifestyle show. Apparently, this has been on for quite some time.

Staying on the topic of news, for whatever reason, known only to KTBS, KPXJ has seemingly expanded to 8am. I already posted on Discord.

This slipped through the cracks, but WFXT's Blair Miller is headed to Cox's Washington, DC bureau. His last day was this past Friday (September 6th).

WNYT’s been phasing in Steve Stone for their promos, specifically for TV advertisements. Don’t have any footage of it currently.

 

Makes you wonder if Ed Hopkins is retiring or if he just passed away. He is still doing promos for the news and the opens, of course.

 

Pour one out for the end of the Ed Hopkins era at WNYT. As of today, they switched from Keynote to the NBC version of 360's 360 and took to Instagram for the occasion:

 

Skimming through NewsOn, which WNYT has issues with as opens are clipped, Steve Stone is now on the talent opens.

Word on the street is that Tony Perkins- Formerly of Good Morning America and WTTG- Washington DC is returning back to the DC market.. Something tells me he may take a trip over to WRC. Currently he's working with Donnie Simpson at Radio one-DC in a production capacity.

FTVLive says he’s heading over to do mornings at WUSA.

Checked the schedule -- shows the 9am news hour, but not 8am.

Would me taking a picture of the newscast be proof? Also, it was listed on TV Guide. I have a picture from earlier this morning.

 

That's Nate Fluharty on the right (of First News on KTBS) anchoring. Neil Shaw was in for Brian Fowler who normally does weather on mornings.

However, by the time they went to 9am, Dominique Brogle (who normally does that hour anyway) was anchoring.

My thoughts on Steve Stone is he’s a bit TOO excited. The way he says some of talent names such as “Jerry Gretzinger” is a bit too fast. Can’t wait to hear how he says “meteorologist Reed Kisselback.”

Tough year for Cleveland viewers with several well-known personalities passing on gets tougher with the death of Fred McLeod last night at the age of 67.

 

McLeod, most recently the local television play-by-play broadcaster for the NBA's Cleveland Cavaliers, had previously filled the same role with the Detroit Pistons as well as working as a sports anchor at WJ(K)W (where wife Beth is currently working as a meteorologist) and WDIV.

It probably hasn't been updated elsewhere yet but as @ColtFromGulfcoast said it was on the TV Guide grid so KTBS/KPXJ must've entered their 8am newscast into the system without telling us anything about it.

 

Anyway, it was about time that KPXJ's morning newscast expanded to 2 hours.

Well, TVGuide.com listings for Shreveport showcases Tamron Hall at 8am, alongside with OnTVTonight and TV Passport.

Can’t say I’ve ever heard of this Steve Stone guy before. Does he do work for any other stations?

Weird. Something smells and I don't like it. Just saying.

Do NYC stations still dedicate as much time and special coverage to 9/11? It led the KTLA Morning News this morning which I was happy to see considering in years past it's been a brief mention of the anniversary.

 

A horrible day I will never ever forget for the rest of my entire life, even as a 1st grader with little understanding of what was unfolding at the time. My aunt who lives in Queens was on a train and witnessed the very beginning of the attacks. Such a haunting experience.

Yes, all the network flagships and PIX 11 covered the annual reading of the names from beginning to end (approximately 12:10 pm to get through all 3000 names).  It is still very poignant and a fitting tribute to all the victims, from the busboy at Windows of the World, the staff at Cantor Fitzgerald, all the other office workers and visitors at the time, as well as the first responders and those that perished on the two planes.

Imma just leave this here:

There's more...

 

(Cross-posted from the TEGNA thread)

 

According to Zap2It, the 7pm and 11pm newscasts are also getting new titles.

 

Here is the full lineup:

 

4-7am  Go!

12-12:30pm  Lunch Break with Jay Crawford

6-6:30pm  What Matters Most

7-7:30pm  Front Row

11-11:30pm  What's Next

 

"Live on Lakeside" will shorten to an hour, and it looks like "Donovan Live" is history.

 

I don't know if they will implement "3 News" in front of the titles on-air, but we shall see.  People will like them, people won't.  We shall see.
