Not her, Taniya used to work here in Raleigh, I knew her the only reason for her move to Texas Houston was to follow her fiance. She had an excellent paying job that sad not even a year. Ironically at WNCN it wasn't even a year. I gonna miss watching her in Houston from Raleigh  she a good salary and following. It was so stupid she left.

 

Former KHOU anchor Lisa Hernandez has been named as Taniya Wright's replacement:

She's gotten screwed by KJRH as well when they got rid of her and Daniel for Scott Thompson and Lisa Jones...

She hadn’t even been at KPRC one year. I wonder if ratings were a factor.

 

Seems like she was given a raw deal. Maybe her co-anchor needed to be changed.

He from Columbus, but can't believe he would leave FOX O&O station for Nexstar.  I guess Mike health not too good.

Jackson had a massive stroke last January-- his bio remains on the station's website as "Anchor Emeritus."

Owen Confleti, her co-anchor has been there for about 15 years and was there during one of the station’s worst periods. He’s not particularly strong as an anchor either so it’s amazing to me how he’s weathered the revolving door. 
 

The anchor of Houston’s perennial #1 in the AM has been there for nearly 40 years I think.

I knew about his stroke. I assume he was getting better. I guess not:(

WCMH has followed up with him from time to time, it has affected him greatly.  I just hope the decision to step aside was his own or his family's and not forced down by the station.

Replacing her with Lisa will be fine, I'm gonna miss her face and those chubby cheeks.

WAGA has been hemorrhaging black on-air talent since last spring. First, Cynné Simpson, Marissa Mitchell, and now Kerry Charles.  It's seems like FTS isn't it for them.

Terrible news for all of their employees, many who have been working hard during this crisis.

 

It wouldn't surprise me if Sinclair is next...they took a horrible gamble on the RSN purchases from FOX, lost a lot of carriage before the crisis, and then came the COVID-19 crisis and all of it's fallout. 

Now the RSN's are worthless without fresh content and less ways to watch them.

Meanwhile, the stations are chugging along producing content and many are working from home.

Do you guys think that perhaps Sinclair and Meredith both might go under? Sinclair is not a surprise here but its Meredith that's the bigger of the surprise here

I think Sinclair is due for a reckoning, (fire sale) and Meredith may be a seller before they know it.  Sinclair is obviously hurting from the enormous debt from all of their M&A and bad purchases (the RSN's), and Meredith is reeling from their magazines and advertising declines.

http://kcradio.robzerwekh.com/ This weekend is Jonathan McCall's last weekend at WDAF-TV. The weekend anchor is moving to KRON-TV in San Francisco, where he will also be weekend anchor and part of the anchor team on KRON's digital steaming channel. McCall spent a little less than a year in Kansas City.

Wow - He has jumped around quite a bit. He was at Spectrum News here in Charlotte for a bit (literally, outside my apartment), after coming from WJZ. Thats a lot of moving around!

I noticed NBC CT started a weekly kids show? Any other NBC O&O doing this? 
 

Seems like a great idea during this time and looks very well done, 2 episodes are on their YouTube page, the guide says it airs Fridays at 11:30.

I know that WOIO (yes I know its not an O&O) has been doing streaming a "story time" and a "weather school" weekdays in the 10am hour. Also in partnership with Cleveland Metropolitan School District, WUAB airs content for the kids weekdays at 9-10am on TV.

WRC started a weekend broadcast called News 4 Kids a few weeks ago.

It’s not quite this but WITI has replaced one of their Judge Judy reruns at 12:00pm with rotating E/I programming (mostly encores from the Xploration Station block)
