  1. What would air at 2 then? Since Steve Harvey was canned.
  2. I think that’s a mistake because from what I’m reading Kelly’s show will air at 2 pm (Steve Harvey’s old time slot) Ellen will remain at 3. I doubt the 4 pm news is getting canceled.
  3. His last day is August 20th and likely won’t start at WNBC until sometime in September.
  4. Former PIX 11 morning reporter Lisa Mateo has joined CBS News as a reporter for CBS Newspath:
  5. She made the announcement on her social media pages.
  6. Option B is most likely what is going to happen with someone new taking over Rafael spot on weekend mornings.
  7. Calm down there. David is working Stefan’s shifts while he is out on paternity leave. Jummy is filling in for Natalie this week and Stacey was on her normal shift. When Natalie goes on leave later this fall Stacey will once again fill in for Natalie at 4, 6 & 11 pm in addition to 5 pm duties. Likely a rotation of fill in anchors will co-anchor with David at 11 am while Stacey is on evening duties.
  8. Sam is pushing 60 and unless Ginger intends on leaving GMA in the next few years (which I don’t see happening) I highly doubt Sam will be going back to GMA permanently before he retires.
  9. According to this post he’s gonna be a fill-in anchor/reporter: https://newsblues.com/2019/05/17/an-anchor-resurfaces/
  10. Doubt he’s going to replace Bill Ritter at 6 & 11 as the late hours is one of the reasons he & his wife left KSHB in the first place. My guess gonna anchor at noon (replacing Shirleen who can focus on the morning shift) and reporting for the 4, 5 & 6 pm shows.
  11. Mike Marusarz who was most recently at NBC affiliate KSHB in Kansas City is joining WABC as anchor/reporter. He will go by Mike Marza a name he went by when he was at WSVN in Miami. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2019/5/17/bounced-kc-anchor-lands-in-the-big-apple
  12. King 5 anchor Lori Matsukawa announced today that she will be retiring after 36 years at KING. Her last day is June 14th. Morning anchor Joyce Taylor succeeds Lori as evening anchor beginning June 17th.
  13. Jummy Olabanji leaving WNBC heading to WRC: https://www.adweek.com/tvspy/wnbc-reporter-and-anchor-heads-home-to-d-c/214243/
  14. FTVlive is saying Shon Gables is likely to get Sharon’s spot and that Tracye Hutchins would remain on mornings.
  15. I’m pretty sure it was their choice to leave. Doing 3 shows a night and I doubt they had a dinner break with enough time to go home and see their kids probably weighed on them. If they do find another gig I imagine it will be reasonable hours
  16. Married KSHB co-anchors Rhiannon Ally & Mike Marusarz stepping down from anchor desk; Christa Dubill & Kevin Holmes to replace them: https://www.adweek.com/tvspy/married-co-anchors-mike-marusarz-and-rhiannon-ally-step-down-from-kshb-replacements-names/213809
  17. WPLG evening anchor Laurie Jennings stepping down from anchor desk next month: https://www.local10.com/station/local-10-s-laurie-jennings-to-step-down-from-anchor-desk-in-may
  18. He’s not replacing nobody. He’s an anchor from the alert desk so breaking news, information just coming in type of stories. Roxanne and Sheli are still the Main morning anchors.
  19. Dan Bowens named 6 & 10 pm weekend anchor effective immediately: https://www.adweek.com/tvspy/hes-been-reporting-since-2010-now-dan-bowens-will-anchor-at-wnyw/213152
  20. Amanda isn’t returning to Boston. She and her family are staying in Seattle.
  21. King 5 7, 9 & 10 pm weeknight anchor Amanda Grace posted on Facebook that tonight is her last night at King 5. Says she’s stepping away from local television for a new opportunity.
  22. Shaina Humphries is joining WXTF as 6 & 11 pm anchor: https://www.adweek.com/tvspy/philly-newest-main-anchor-comes-from-iowa/211946
  23. Travis is Chief meteorologist while David is chief weathercaster as to why 2 chiefs who knows perhaps for severe weather etc they can tag team.
  24. David Tillman of KTRK moves from weekends to weekdays at 11 & 4 and is given title of Chief weathercaster. Rachel Briers presumably takes his weekend spot.
  25. They recently hired Rachel Briers who joined last month from last KWES. I had originally thought Collin would take over Elita’s old schedule of 11a, 3 & 4p until I saw his FB post. So wonder if Rachel will do 11a & 4p M-F and add the 3p on Monday’s & Tuesday’s? Or perhaps she takes David’s weekend slot and David is moved to weekdays?
