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

Raleigh's WNCN (CBS 17) has found it's new main anchor. Former WFLA NewsChannel 8 anchor/reporter Rod Carter tapped to take the helm as the stations 5:00, 6:00 & 11:00pm anchor alongside Angela Taylor. Carter's first day was yesterday. So, this is how the new news lineup looks like for CBS 17 News.

 

  • Bill Young and Randi Ayala anchor weekday mornings, 4:30 to 7 a.m., with Bill Reh at weather and Laura Smith at traffic.
  • Bill Young is back at noon, with Liz Ortiz, and Reh is still on for weather.
  • Angela Taylor and Rod Carter anchor 5, 6 and 11 p.m. with Wes Hohenstein at weather.
  • Taylor and Russ Bowen anchor the 5:30 p.m. broadcast, along with Hohenstein at weather.
  • On weekends, Holden Kurwicki anchors at 6 a.m. (plus 7 a.m. on Sundays) and Melissa LeFevre has weather.
  • Maggie Newland anchors the Saturday and Sunday 6 and 11 p.m. news, with Nick Sturdivant, and Brian Hutton Jr. is on weather.

Emilie Ikeda, reporter at FOX 5 Atlanta, is leaving the station. There was some buzz on her going back to Philly (being that she worked at FOX 29 and it was also her hometown) but she shut down those rumors in a comment by saying she's only going there for a bit before she moves to her next spot. I don't claim to know anything but she did follow some NBC accounts recently, so that's what I'll speculate on.

KTRK traffic reporter Kathrine Whaley will depart the station to spend more time with her family.  Her last day is March 25th.

Been numerous cuts/departures planned at KTRK since the pandemic began, most of which have rattled their viewer base. Wondering when we'll see any new hires coming onboard. Same with KABC.

Yesterday's weather was very close to home, literally, for ABC 33/40's James Spann, as one of the tornadoes damaged his house and property as he was on the air covering the storm.  Meterologist Taylor Sarallo took over as Spann was able to check in with his wife Karen, who was able to shelter in their storm shelter, and is ok.

Despite this news, he kept on covering the storm and thanked viewers for their concern, and told them to instead to help those in need who lost their houses and loved ones.

WNCN is a dump of a station. Nobody stays very long save a few longtime settled folks.


No not really they have done really well in this market, since I live there they just need to do better with contracts, like the other 2 dominate stations. They could also use a chopper.

Despite the troubles that WNCN has had over the years competing against WRAL and WTVD, they pale in comparison to the disaster that WRDU/WPTF/WRDC was as the market's NBC affiliate.  And these all predate their takeover by Sinclair.

Their schedule looks better today than they did under their later Media General days, when they were showing third-rate syndicated programming during network off-hours.

Yep they only had a 4:30-7am, 6, 7, 11pm newscasts. There was in 2008 weekend newscasts from the NBC O&O days but was later cancelled. The full-hour 7pm newscasts was in there favor it made them unique till they cut it to a half-hour. And weekends was 6,7, and 11 and Sunday 6pm, and 11pm. They were incomplete because media general destroyed there news department from the inside out instead of strengthening it.

It's never good to balk to FOX whenever the question is "what to do in the 10pm hour".....and if the answer is not "News", that's probably why FOX bolted for WRAZ. 

Even though the news department was intact, it lasted until the demise of News Central in 2006 and has been farmed out to WTVD ever since...

WLFL left Fox for the WB because Sinclair gave them a sweetheart affiliation deal, not because lack of news. What you speak of applies to what happened in Norfolk at the same time with WTVZ (I can't remember of WAVY already had a 10:00 on WVBT when they were WB). That same sweetheart deal also triggered UPN to WB switches in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Oklahoma City, and San Antonio.

 

WLFL's news did well even into their time as WB, it was Sinclair want to force everyone Fox/Netlet (and WXLV) onto News Central that led to its demise.
