Here’s how I would do a subchannel shuffle in Corpus Christi:

 

KIII: 3.1 ABC (720p HD), 3.2 FOX (720p HD – move from KUQI), 3.3 MeTV (480i SD)

KRIS: 6.1 NBC (1080i HD), 6.2 Telemundo (720p HD – move from KZTV2), 6.3 Cozi TV (480i SD – move from KIII4)

KZTV: 10.1 CBS (1080i HD), 10.2 CW Plus (720p HD – move from KRIS2), 10.3 KDF (480i SD)

KUQI: 38.1 MundoFOX (720p HD – move from KIII3), 38.2 Retro TV (480i SD)

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

KTRK anchor Dave Ward to cut back on newscasts starting in January. Last day on the 10pm will be December 23. He marks 50 years at the ABC-owned station in 2016.

Has Carson already been the de facto 5th member of the team at 10 and slipping right in, or is she being moved there with Ward's cutback?

I Believe Ilona has been part of the 10 pm shows ever since She and Erik started anchoring the 6:30 shows.

Dunno where to put this, but I have NEVER seen a ratings book like this in Milwaukee (even though it's always been a competitive market). Only 0.4 ratings points separated #1 WTMJ and #4 WISN at 10pm in the October book.

And just as those numbers come out, it appears as if WDJT may have shot themselves in the foot with their story on pitbulls last night, which ignited a social media firestorm. I have never seen so many posts against a news station, calling them "biased", "idiots", and my personal favorite, "narrow minded inbreds".

 

It also sparked this image popping up all over Facebook.

Ouch.

The departures keeps coming at WGCL CBS46, this time their chief meteorologist Markina Brown is leaving this week. Her last day is Friday.

It be nice if Paul Ossmann would get the top job to be weather anchor for CBS 46 he would add a face that familiar in the market. After working at WAGA & WXIA.

Not a big loss, I never cared much for Markina Brown anyway, I'm kinda surprised she stuck around for 4 years.

 

I agree, but if he doesn't get it, I wouldn't mind Jennifer Valdez getting promoted as her replacement. Speaking of departures, there's been a lot of them this year when it comes to the weather departments at all 4 stations (WSB, WAGA, WXIA, and WGCL) It seems like a domino effect.

 

EDIT: I just thought about this, I don't know if it's 100% certain that David Chandley will end up over at WAGA come the new year as the new Chief met, but if it isn't, is it possible he could end up over at WGCL instead?

I don't think it will hurt them. Dog owners, and especially pit bull owners, are unusually loyal and defensive. I'll bet some of those posters aren't regular WDJT viewers anyway. Anytime we air a dog-mauling story, we get calls/emails from people who say "I don't normally watch your station, but...".

After stepping away from the anchor desk after many years about a month ago (but continuing to report in the field), WATN's Cameron Harper confirmed this evening that today is his last day at WATN.

 

From his Facebook:

 

Hi everyone. Since many of you are friends and we share a lot here on Facebook and on TV, I want to let you know this was my last day at Local 24. Leaving is entirely my decision while I consider some interesting options.

Thank you for watching, sharing your stories and inviting me into your homes on television and online. That's the highest honor anyone in my business can ever receive.

What's coming next? All I can say right now is please stay tuned.

Perhaps the least surprising news ever. After being taken off the anchor desk, which clearly that wasn't his decision, I knew he would be leaving at the first opportunity available. He'll land somewhere else I'm sure, don't know whether it will be in the Memphis market however. Best of luck to him.

Trent Aric (Weekend Meterologist and Former Chief) proposes to Jacey Birch (Morning anchor) at WPLG. Very unique way of doing it. Congratulations to both of them.

 

I know this wasn't live, but I'm not usually a fan of these TV proposals, but that was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO ADORABLE.

 

Now excuse me while I pick my manliness up off the floor.

Chandley at WAGA is already locked in; now we're waiting for the promos to start running during the holidays (something like, "David Chandley joins the Fox 5 Storm Team...coming in January!").

 

And besides, after years and years of being only second banana to Glenn Burns, he's better off at the #2 station in Atlanta (actually #1 in the 18-49s) rather than #4.

WTVJ Joe Rose to retire in December:

 

http://www.nbcmiami.com/news/local/NBC-6s-Joe-Rose-to-Retire-in-December-275354971.html

 

Great sports anchor and a unique personality. I would also say considering he has worked as the morning host on 560 WQAM and is a commentator on Dolphins broadcasts, best time to slow down.

I bet CBS had a say in this. Remember they're buying WQAM and they also own WFOR. They probably don't want him working on their competitor and likely told him to choose between TV and radio.

 

It wouldn't surprise me if they addressed Adam Kuperstein soon enough as well.

Am I alone in thinking that he may return to Phoenix -- perhaps even KTVK, where he anchored between 1986 and 1995?

KTVK/KPHO's got a logjam of talent it needs to fix, especially given the consolidation. I don't know if he jumps into that.

I agree with Raymie -- there really is no place for him in Phoenix right now. KTVK/KPHO is full. ABC15 seems happy with Steve Irwin. Fox 10 has a bunch of senior people. KPNX seems happy with Mark Curtis. No room in Phoenix at all...

He had a brief stint with KNXV right after 9/11 occurred. I'm not sure he left the station on amicable terms.

Fox 10 has a bunch of senior people.

 

Yeah, I think they have the oldest news crew among all Fox O&Os. Except for Kari Lake, all five of their main weeknight evening anchors were hired before the station joined Fox (Dave Munsey in 1975), three of the four weekend evening personalities have been with the station 10 years or more, and two of their morning people are longtime fixtures in Phoenix TV (joined by a weatherman with 13 years of tenure at the station). This is also a station where I don't think any of the three weathercasters on staff has a meteorological seal, either.

 

I watch KSAZ a lot, and I've always kind of noticed the tension between the younger Fox format (graphics, music, even the supermodern set) and the older news presenters.
