Bob Grip is anchoring the weekend 9pm newscast on WALA Fox 10. 

He retired back in January 2019 after a 30+ year tenure as primary anchor.

I wonder if this is a temporary fill-in position, or if he's looking to come out of retirement? 

 

Soon after Mel Showers retired from WKRG last year, he filled in a few more times over the summer and hasn't been seen since.

 

EDIT:. It's a temporary gig, and he may be on election night too.

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

Glad he apologize. Joking about People's deaths is not funny at all.

 

I know Mitch Mcconnell is still alive, but I need to point this out.

She stated it’s just for tomorrow. Honestly she must really be committed to that station with as many times they bounce her around I’d left long ago.

I think it has to do with her daughters education they reasons why she's stayed for so long.

 

I agree CBS46 (WGCL) has played hot potato with Tracye over the years.

Amber Roberts and Jonathan Monté were reporting in Taylorsville today when a bridge they were standing on collapsed on the air. Thank goodness they are OK! How scary!

When you think things couldn't get worse for Ted, well.. (from WISN radio host Dan O'Donnell)

 

 

If he loses his job, there's a pipeline to WDJT from WITI via their new GM... put money on it.

I have thoughts about what Dan O'Donnell and the rest of the WISN lineup can do... I'll let you use your imagination as to what. IMO, they're all repugnant.

Considering those folks at WISN killed any effort by my county to reduce COVID-19 through inane 'but muh freedoms' protests against the county government (a county that isn't even covered in their news unless their 'outrage of the week' occurs here), it's no wonder WISN-TV long ago burned all bridges with them.

Interesting read about the toxic workplace at KUSI.

 

https://www.facebook.com/groups/17007101173/permalink/10157329699556174/

From reading the comments and post, not only is john soderman gone after over 20 years there but Steve Bosh and Sasha Foo are also out after many years there. Only old timers left at KUSI seem to be Weatherman Dave Scott, Longtime Sports Anchor and Current Morning Co-Anchor Paul Rudy, Reporter Ed Lenderman and Anchor/Reporter Dan Plante. Gotta Wonder how much longer for them at KUSI

Sandra leaving was the ice breaker and John speaking out opened a lot of eyes along with multiple shots fired.

 

it’s been a while since I checked on my hometown market. It’s sad in the direction KUSI is going. A few weeks ago they had Mark Mathis clowning about the governors restrictions calling him King Newsom. 
 

I understand most of the staff at KUSI is old and trying to be the “cool parent” in the mornings but that was beyond out of bounds.

KUSI is like a mom-and-pop local version of Fox News to a degree. It's more Fox News than Fox 5. Remember, this is the station that let John Coleman go off about global warming. They clearly have a slant. Then again, that is their audience.

Yep. Their owner is a conservative so that makes sense...

Jim Kambrich is retiring after 41 years in broadcasting, the last 26 years at WNYT; December 4 will be his last day at the station. His wife started a new job in NYC in July and has been going back and forth between there and the Albany area since, so they will be moving to NYC full-time.

 

Here's the video of his announcement via WNYT's Facebook page.

Here's a promo for when he was the 11pm anchor at WAKC, which was then Akron's ABC affiliate alongside WEWS in Cleveland.

A lot of people either worked early or started their careers there.  Paxson shut down the news department in 1996 and dropped ABC the following year.
