AM Anchor

AM Anchor (4/8)



  1. It is a bit odd that Fred's debut will be in late June, and yet a formal announcement has been made in early March. I'm guessing he's finishing up his current contract? Also, it wouldn't surprise me if Keith returns to mornings and Johnny becomes Fred's primary substitute.
  2. When Brittany Shipp comes back from maternity leave, it will bring some stability back to the First Alert Weather team. I am surprised Steve has not filled in M-F and another meteorologist (from Telemundo) fills in for him in weekend evenings.
  3. If they ever had a plan with Rick and a co-anchor at 11, it went out the window when Monica left.
  4. I've noticed that Rosemary has been solo anchoring mornings so far this week. Perhaps Keith, Erin, and Lucy are all on vacation? And I think having Frances and Johnny on weekends would avoid this situation in the future. While it would be nice to have another anchor paired with Tracy, 10 has a strong anchor trio in Tracy, Jim, and Jacqueline.
  5. As I was watching David Murphy's tribute for the morning broadcast, it really is an accomplishment that the morning team of Matt, Tam, David, and Karen have been together for 17 years. And IIRC, they were the permanent team that succeeded Rick, Monica, and Cecily in the mornings. Here's the link of David Murphy's retirement on 6abc.com: https://6abc.com/david-murphy-retiring-is-when-action-news-retirement/10971435/ And David Murphy's last broadcast at noon today was posted by PhillyNewsLover's YT Channel, with tributes from other members of the AccuWeather team.
  6. With David Murphy and Karen Rogers, it's very rare to see other meteorologists, especially Cecily and Adam, fill in during weekday mornings.
  7. Looks like NBC 10 made the switch to Look S Thanks to PhillyNewsLover for the montage!
  8. I happen to be watching them this morning when the announcement was made. Here are my takeaways: Congrats to Vai on his retirement! They really went out of their way to say that today was not a farewell tribute for him. I think they're going to have something big planned as he retires at the end of the year. I'm looking forward to watch Tracy in the afternoons again and paired with Jacqueline and especially Jim. In the FB Live chat this morning, Keith mentioned he's been with NBC 10 for 8 years now. It was odd that it wasn't mentioned in the announcement that he started in the mornings, then a few months after Jim arrived, Keith and Vai swapped shifts. Could part of this lineup restructure be a result of COVID financial circumstances? Because I can see them sticking with Tracy, Jim, and Jacqueline for the afternoon/evening/late night newscasts. It wouldn't surprise me too if 10 hires another anchor to join them.
  9. Jim is anchoring the 11PM news with Keith. Has this happened before? If it has, does it happen on occasion? This is a first for me seeing both of them anchoring a newscast together.
  10. I thought I was the only one. Something just didn't click when I watched her. Also, early in her time in Philly, I think I heard her refer to Center City as "Philly Metro".
  11. Spotted this Inquirer article on my FB feed and my jaw dropped. Meteorologist Tammie Souza out at NBC10
  12. A wonderful tribute by Jamie Apody remembering Gary Papa's 10th death anniversary yesterday. https://6abc.com/sports/10-years-since-i-said-goodbye-jamie-apody-remembers-gary-papa/5353144/ John Clark, along with Cecily, and Jim Gardner (I'm sure there's more but I follow them on Twitter) had Twitter posts too remembering Gary. https://twitter.com/JClarkNBCS/status/1141377244260130824?s=20
  13. I guess the succession plan in place for the past 15 years might not happen after all. Sad to see her go, but wishing her well in her new chapter. I only started watching Rick and Monica once they were in the 5PM, but I can imagine their pairing played a major role in shaping Philly TV news in the mornings.
  14. With Rosemary, she deserved to be promoted to a weekday newscast for some time now. I was hoping she or Denise would become Keith's co-anchor at 5 before they hired Erin. I'm not sure if she's been reporting in the 4-6 PM news block, but that was on my mind when Rosemary began anchoring the 11AM. I think the reason why Keith and Erin only anchor the 5 and not the 11AM newscasts is both contribute as reporters (I'm sure about Keith, but don't know about Erin) for the 11PM newscasts.
  15. Just watched the first newscast posted. Here are my takeaways: -I like the effort and intended purpose of the newscast, but the execution seems off. You can tell that they were going for a lighter feel with "all the information that you'll need" but there were just way too many people coming in and out of the newscast, with Ukee in the first block, and Jessica in the 2nd half hour, just to recap the headline. Natasha and Alexandria (I know Natasha is) are both more than capable of handling the news. -Part of the execution is if they are going with the lighter feel with information overload newscast, then I'm sending sports (with the Eagles) and HealthWatch are going to be major components of the newscast. Why not integrate Don and Stephanie in the newscast itself... Part of the reason (besides ratings) why 10's All That & More with Tracy back in 2006 did not work out was the program had a purpose when Cherie Bank was integrated with health news. But I think that was around the time she had her medical condition began to affect her too. -That's too much having Ukee and Jessica popping in the 4 PM newscast when they do 5, 6, 10, and 11 PM newscasts. -Is it just me or am I hearing them refer to the program as CBS3@4? Do they not want the program to have the Eyewitness News brand? -6 has had the 4 PM Newscast for 7 years now and I think they've perfected the balance between hard and soft news by now. 10 has been going hard news at 4 (especially with 20 minutes non-stop A Block) for at least 5 years now. With CBS3@4, I expect both to follow this... "you do you"
