I’d say it would be a toss up between Rafael & Erica to get the Weekday morning spot.

I hope it was his choice , and not because they didn’t renew his contract after the f bomb

It’s entirely feasible David Price could be moved to mornings (and retain the 11am while ceding the 4pm to Janice).

I could see Dave getting it...that’s a good point!

 

Sam Champion and his speedo are running everyone out in the morning. First John now Chris! 😂

Dave getting TINY actually makes sense. Any idea if anyone else might be retiring soon? Perhaps Chuck, Janice and/or Bruce?

Toss up between Dave and Rafael to get AM. Honestly, I would like to see Rafael to get AM. Perfect fit for him. Leave Dave at 11AM and 4PM.

I say Chuck first. You see he doesn't do 11PM anymore if that's one indication. However, possibly his choice.

If I was a bettor in this situation: Neither Janice or Bruce will be retiring anytime soon.

My guess is Dave gets TINY. He’s higher profile and he has the experience in the mornings. I wouldn’t be surprised if Chuck retires from working full time at the end of the year. He chose to step down at 11 two years ago. Apparently Natalie is going on Maternity Leave in the fall. I wouldn’t be surprised if he steps down when she gets back. Bruce And Janice Perhaps will remains for a while. Chris probably doesn’t want to keep working mornings. 20 years is long enough.

After giving it some more thought my guess is that Rafael will take over weather for TINY. He is the natural heir.

Dave Price would be great in the AM. Good luck to Chris though, can't believe he's leaving.

Chris on Facebook is claiming his departure form WNBC wasn’t his choice and that he’s not retiring.

What about Maria LaRosa. She was hired by NBC 4 but is hardly on. 

If I'm correct she's not a full time hire and is freelancing for NBC News.

Maria LaRosa just announced on Twitter that she’s the new morning meteorologist.

I was hoping Dave or Raphael would have gotten the job. Does a station really need 5 meteorologists?

Didn't see this coming at all. However, congratulations to the freelancer, now official new NBC4 meteorologist Maria LaRosa.

 

Darlene > Michael > Lauren > Maria.. Does have a nice fit..

The good news is that TINY could definitely hold their own with ratings in the AM. I say this is a good pick up. Another homegrown meteorologist on board.

DC and Philadelphia have about 5-7 meteorologists on staff.  If I'm not mistaken most stations tend to have 5 on staff.

I hope Chris’s replacement if not Erica Gross. Maria LaRosa is a much better fit.
