  1. WSOC just debuted the graphics at Noon. Finally phasing out that butchered package from like 2011 or 2012 I think?
  2. I was wondering the same thing. It is eerie, because there is nothing online, mainly FB posts from viewers mentioning how he has just disappeared from everything WTTG. Very interesting. Could have gotten another position at another station, and under a Non-Compete, or at least that what I am assuming.
  3. WCNC's Fred Shropshire is headed to WCAU: https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=pfbid02Gv9rNgPN8QQd2wsaveMe4DHFfi5p7A3ZAGrpQBHwrMiw77vQpArzRTxjGCA8DGBXl&id=100064761934185&mibextid=Nif5oz
  4. Yup, 2010 with the HD upgrade IIRC. When I saw this I was thinking, they just got a new set, but it was definitely almost 13 years ago! Time flies!
  5. Ah okay, I was wondering where she was! She had been on WSOC for the last few years. Curious to see who her replacement is here in Charlotte. Congrats to her!
  6. Me either - Very detailed - Even down to the explanation of the different colors and when the colors are used. Lol! I thought it was fascinating and hilarious at the same time. I love to see the excitement at the station!
  7. Definitely well deserved, and I think its a first in the market, First Black Woman Chief Meteorologist, she would've been my choice as well! I am surprised, because I definitely thought Bryan Van DeGraff and Steve Rudin (Who has been at WUSA, WTTG, and now WJLA) would've had the position!
  8. Yes, she has really grown up on WSOC, with all of her life changes and everyhing. Allison has been such a mainstay with WSOC. This was bittersweet news, and I am actually kind of sad to see her leave the airwaves. I am interested, on the flip side, who will take her role. She was originally on at 5:30 and 10, but in recent years, she has been backup for 5/6/7/10/11, and anchor at noon (with John Paul before he went to WPVI) and from time to time the Mornings. I am interested to see who fills that role.
  9. I agree, I feel like the space underneath the L3 might be for a ticker? Open is definitely a downgrade, this almost looks like an in-house open like WJET.
  10. Lol I was going to say, it is definitely still being produced, I still (sad to say) watch it every weekend on VH1! Lol this weekend, one episode, everyone was masked up (post 2020).
  11. I know I am super late, but I just saw this! I wonder if they are paying, although I have noticed, it always says "First Alert" and then Weather Center, or Forecast, etc. I wonder if they are using a loophole by not ever saying "First Alert Weather". Just very interesting, never knew it was trademarked!
  12. Former WJLA/CNN and current WRC Anchor Leon Harris was arrested after being charged with DUI: https://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/leon-harris-involved-in-car-crash-charged-with-dui/2955116/
  13. I can't even begin - I am still confused on air because you hear all three (!) newscast titles on the station now. FOX 46 News, Queen City News is coming, and FOX Charlotte News Tonight at 10. I am so lost, because the open and the anchors say FOX 46 News at 10, but its advertised as FOX Charlotte News. This is a mess. Not to mention Queen City News (IMO) is a stupid name for a viewing area that encompasses two states. I was looking forward to seeing a nice refresh for 46, but this is garbage. I know part of it is the de-emphasis on "FOX" but, honestly, why not just keep the same branding, or even better, stick with FOX Charlotte branding, it was WCCB previous branding, might as well use it. I do not see this sitting well in the market.I'm sure by May there will be three more names for the newscast.
  14. Also in Charlotte over at WSOC, Demany Lewis and John Paul switch roles, with Demany Lewis taking Mornings, and John Paul taking Midday and 7pm. No word on the replacement of Brittney Johnson in the Mornings just yet.
  15. I don't know if this one has been mentioned yet. Interesting take on Tegna graphics.
  16. Speculation is over. Shawn Yancy to WRC evenings. https://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/shawn-yancy-joins-nbc4-washington-as-evening-anchor/2499232/
  17. Well - I mean, with Bruce Johnson retiring....and her and Lesli Foster being close friends as well, I could see her there.
  18. Former WTTG Anchor going to WUSA Morning starting 11/9: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10224674913760126&set=a.1129848846291&type=3
  19. Yes, something is definitely going on. In the market, for our African American community, (specially us Millennials) WTTG was the go-to largely thanks to her and Allison. WTTG is going to hurt from this definitely! I wonder if we will get more insight soon.
  20. A friend of Allison's said something about how Allison was pushed out, for younger talent, and how management prefers Holly Morris, and Erin (Don't know the last name), etc. It was a lot in the post. I'm sure there will be more insight on it in the coming days.
  21. And not without controversy:
  22. Robin Reed from WDBJ comes to mind. Tim Williams from WJZ, and...umm...one of the most obvious examples (to me) - Tony Perkins from GMA/WTTG/WUSA. Maybe because she is a meteorologist and not a weather anchor? Idk, I do think it is a strange statement to say from an insider site.
  23. So, I happened to turn on my Spectrum on my Apple TV, and noticed that Spectrum News (NC-Charlotte) is now Spectrum News 1. Anyone heard anything about this change? Everything else is the same, but after searching the internet, I didn't see anything about it. (I know it isn't earth shattering news, but I am extremely curious why there was a change!)
  24. I never understood this logo. I mean, I like how clean it looks. But, I just absolutely do not understand what the "slash" is for, or represents. I usually don't care about logos, I just think they all, for the most part look the same. But this one just boggles my mind.
  25. Hmm, I thought it was because at one point, 4:00 was called "Focus at 4" or something? If it isn't then, yeah, that is strange lol. I wonder if 4:00 is a different format or something (pre-COVID 19)?
