  1. At WTEN, meteorologist Nick Johnston was demoted to weekends after Monday's show from mornings until his last day on September 3rd. Almost immediately, a petition for his return to mornings was created. https://www.change.org/p/to-the-people-of-the-capital-region-get-meteorologist-nick-johnston-back-on-wten?recruiter=6710905&utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=facebook&utm_campaign=autopublish&utm_term=mob-xs-share_petition-reason_msg&utm_content=nafta_share_post_title_en_1%3Areal_control http://blog.timesunion.com/kristi/2017/06/07/nick-johnston-out-as-morning-meteorologist-at-wten/ https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=10212922691045829 While, weekend sports anchor Josh Rultenberg's contract wasn't renewed and his last day will on June 30th. http://blog.timesunion.com/kristi/2017/06/08/josh-rultenberg-out-as-sportscaster-at-wten/
  2. If you thought WNEM's current open was bad, try the previous open.
  3. I knew former sister station used to do the "forecast first" before they went to Hearst. They would have a new logo already when they switched graphics and plus the WSLS 10 logo is exactly 20 years old. Logo debuted on April 14, 1997.
  4. WSLS has received the Graham graphics and switched from Canvas to Aerial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQNHtVp3M1k

  7. The Post found the attacker and he's claiming he is the victim. http://nypost.com/2017/03/05/masked-man-who-pushed-reporter-says-he-wanted-publicity/ By the way, CeFaan was an U.S. Army Reserve sergeant.

  10. In Joe's own words from Friday on Facebook.
  11. KTRK's Dave Ward is recovering from open heart surgery. He's retiring this month. http://abc13.com/society/dave-ward-recovering-from-heart-surgery/1640981/
  12. WALB's lead anchor Ben Roberts is leaving for a position as a "Public Relations Manager" for Phoebe Putney Health System at the end of the the month. Jim Wallace will take over on New Year's Day. http://www.walb.com/story/33855334/ben-roberts-says-goodbye-to-walb Lima, OH's "Your News Now" Chief Meteorologist Kyle Adams' last day was yesterday after working there for 10 years.

  13. FOX News' Shepard Smith's anchoring at WJHG in 1988.
  14. Watertown, NY is getting a NBC affiliate (WVNC-LD) on December 1st with a news department by 2018. http://www.watertowndailytimes.com/news03/nbc-to-launch-affiliate-in-watertown-20161103
  15. One tiny problem, John Wetherbee is still at WTOC/WFXG and there is no mention of him leaving WTOC at all.
  16. He starts officially on the 24th [MEDIA=twitter]785567890212687872[/MEDIA] [MEDIA=twitter]785546233934778368[/MEDIA] Good luck to him.
  17. CT to NJ, that's going thru New York to go to Jersey. You might as well consolidate News 12 into one mega channel serving the tri-state instead of six separate channels. In their defense, Brooklyn/The Bronx are in one studio and so is Hudson Valley/Westchester.
  18. WTVH Syracuse NY 4/6/98 with David Muir & Kathy Orr (Weekday 11pm broadcast)
  19. Their website is now mynbc5.com although it redirects to back to wptz.com.
  20. Well, Laura did the 11pm Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and she's still in the opens. So far, they haven't named a replacement but they did remove Rob from the 11pm promo. Monica Pellegrini shared the nightly news with Russ Salzberg on WWOR from '98 to '03, while Sam Ryan was the first female sports director to anchor solo in '07 when Ducis Rodgers was laid off.
  21. Ironically, WBAY's main anchor Bill Jartz is the PA announcer for Lambeau Field.
  22. Well one famous New Yorker person disagree with Harmon's theory, Don Paul. Yes, . Funny, they have a sports anchor who works mornings and Sundays who also does the Sunday sports show. They have a Saturday sports anchor, and they don't have a weekday sports anchor in busy sports market on a station that airs the World Series annually and the Super Bowl every three years?
  23. Ken was on today, so was Bill Evans.
  24. Is it that hard to use the search feature before you post?
