  1. 2 more Houston area talent are leaving: Britta Merwin of KPRC leaving to move back east to be closer to family (has job lined up but has not yet announced where) https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2021/05/britta-merwin-to-leave-kprc-2.html?m=1 Britta’s last day is June 4th. Blake Matthews of KHOU is leaving and moving to Florida in the near term however no job lined up (as of yet) https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2021/05/blake-mathews-leaving-khou-11.html?m=1 Blake’s last day at KHOU will be June 30th.
  2. Stephen Hauck is also gone from the station.
  3. She’ll likely take the typical 12 week maternity leave when baby girl is born so expect her to be out all summer.
  4. NBCs chief White House correspondent and Saturday Today anchor Kristen Welker and her husband John Hughes are expecting a baby girl via a surrogate. https://www.today.com/parents/kristen-welker-s-letter-daughter-about-surrogacy-today-t215915
  5. Yes she did the morning show but unsure if she did the noon as well. Pretty long day if she did.
  6. Why is everyone assuming Shirleen is leaving? She’s just filling in for Mona for a few days this week. Same when NBC & CBS borrow local talent from their affiliates one assumes that such and such person is joining the network
  7. She stated it’s just for tomorrow. Honestly she must really be committed to that station with as many times they bounce her around I’d left long ago.
  8. FTV is reporting that Jeannette Reyes will be leaving 6abc and head to DC and join FOX’s WTTG as weekday morning anchor. WTTG is teasing a huge announcement on its social media pages this coming Monday.
  9. Vanessa Borge leaving KTTV and LA heading back to Miami and joining WSVN as weekday morning anchor. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2020/10/31/from-socal-to-soflo
  10. He’s succeeding Stefan Holt as 4 & 11 pm co-anchor next month as Stefan returns to Chicago and WMAQ to co-anchor the 4 & 10 pm newscasts over there.
  11. Were those 2 even full time staff? I don’t ever recall seeing their bios up on nbcla.com and that’s even when the bios were available.
  12. Joyce Evans is retiring from FOX 29....last day is August https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2020/8/7/signing-off-in-philly
  13. So does Anthony Dilorenzo follow his wife to the evening shift or does he stay on mornings?
  14. Someone asked if Kala was joining him at 6 pm and he replied “afraid not” meaning Kala is either staying on the morning shift at PIX, moving to a reporter role or leaving the station all together.
  15. Either Kala is staying on mornings at PIX (moving to co-anchor the 7-9am portion) or she’s leaving PIX all together.
  16. Perhaps Kala is going to WNBC to fill the 11a & 5p spot vacated by Stacey Bell.
  17. Both Russ Lewis and Sally Ramirez of KHOU leaving: https://mikemcguff.blogspot.com/2020/06/russ-lewis-to-retire-from-khou.html?m=1 Russ is retiring while Sally is likely leaving to follow Russ back to Oregon.
  18. He was at WABC from 1993-2003 before making the switch to WNBC.
  19. For those wondering where Rob Nelson is headed: https://www.robertfeder.com/2020/06/02/wgns-joe-donlon-named-weeknight-anchor-nexstars-news-nation/ He’ll be weeknight breaking news anchor alongside former KCPQ anchor Marni Hughes, current WGN9 anchor Joe Donlon & former KVUE meteorologist Albert Ramon.
  20. Freelance. She posted a video on Instagram and someone asked if she part of the team and said she’s just freelancing for the time being.
  21. Stacey Bell posted on her instagram that today is her last day at WNBC. Heading out to LA to be closer to her husband.
  22. WTVJ midday news is at 11am followed by the lifestyle/entertainment show “6 in the mix”
