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

Major shakeup in Colorado Springs on the heels of a station tragedy...

 

KKTV main anchor Dianne Derby has resigned from the station today, less than two months after her longtime co-Anchor, Don Ward, unexpectedly passed away. The two were very close, and she took a leave of absence most of last month. Just yesterday, the station announced morning anchor Adam Atchison would be promoted to Ward’s old position. Now, they have another main anchor spot to fill with Derby’s departure.

43 years doing weather at one station... That's got to be a record right? Dave Dahl calling it quits at KSTP.

I have a hunch Ken Barlow will take the helm as Chief when Dave retires in December.

Almost certainly. They've dubbed him "AM Chief Meteorologist" for a while now.

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.

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.
