Jim Gardner Reducing Schedule, to Retire at End of 2022

I'd be surprised if they kept Rick at 10. Not to call the 10 team the "b" squad", but I get the feeling they'd like to keep their "premiere" talent on the 11 and have a separate team they can highlight on the 10 (and give viewers another reason to flip over to 6 at 11). Plus, I would be surprised if Rick isn't also named to the 6pm once that time comes at the end of the year. If he does drop the 10, the question would be- who gets the 10? Taff has already been shifted off to earlier in the day. Bring Walter Perez to weeknights? Call up Gray Hall from weekend mornings?

Honestly surprised they didn’t go with co-anchors. Sharrie is already in studio for the 10pm, and the two anchor their other broadcasts together. 

 

If they ever had a plan with Rick and a co-anchor at 11, it went out the window when Monica left.

I’m relaxed. Clearly you are not. But I’ve seen you go back and forth with others in the past (maybe that’s why you change your username often) so I’m also done. Enjoy your day. 

Whatever, bud. Good to know. I admit yes, and that's my fault; apparently twice is often to you, but no that's not the reason. And you too have a nice day.

I’ve never changed my name. Listen, I can go back and forth with you all week if you’d like, but I prefer not to. Just give it a rest. It’s ok to have a difference of opinion. No need to throw insults.

No thanks, I don't want to; I gave it a rest hours ago. I just wanted to finish my piece and move on. If you do, fine. I apologize that you felt that way.

Rick Williams has started doing a preview of the 11p show during the 6p news. Like what they do at 4p. 

Always thought this made sense. Surprised Jim doesn’t do a preview of the 6pm during the 5pm.

I saw on another thread that if Nexstar’s acquisition of the CW goes through, they may try to put Newsnation on at 10pm. With Nexstar owning WPHL here, I wonder if they would move the CW affiliation there, and if so, may spell the end of the news at 10pm. May make sense to hold off on naming a co-anchor until there is certainty or clarity on whether the outsourced news will continue.
