  1. That seems crazy to me. They're salaried employees. It's not like they're paid by the hour. Do you think they get compensatory time off when there's a major news event and they need to be on the air for extra hours or anchor on the weekend after a big event? Wouldn't only freelance reporters by paid hourly? Certainly not their main anchors. I can't speak for Maurice and Christine, but I can tell you that reporters like Jenna DeAngelis and Lisa Rozner post on IG and always seem to be thrilled when they do the hourly CBS Newsbreak segments on the weekend. I doubt it's because they get a day off during the week for doing it (if they do at all) or get paid extra for working overtime. Seems like they like the exposure.
  2. They need to do the pregame show somewhere. If not on WPIX, they'd had to put it on the schedule at SNY, which wouldn't make a lot of sense when WPIX has the game.
  3. Has anyone seen Andrea since she left the anchor chair? She hasn't been on social media since she left, but she's still listed on the CBS website. I don't watch WCBS enough to say definitively that she hasn't been on any newscast as a reporter.
  4. Liv Johnson has joined as meteorologist/reporter combo, replacing Regan. She's doing weather tonight, I think she also did it last weekend one day but Audrey posted a picture of her in the studio so maybe she was there to help if needed.
  5. Yeah, that seemed strange.
  6. I was coming here to post that Joelle Garguilo was leaving WNBC/Today with Hoda and Jenna/E! News and I wondered if she was going to be replacing Sandy, since I couldn't see her leaving those jobbs for anything else. Then I found this article, dated today. Joelle Garguilo Joins WABC-TV Channel 7 Eyewitness News New York as an Entertainment Reporter - (laughingplace.com) BTW, here's an interesting article about her from the SUNY Albany magazine (she's a graduate). UAlbany Magazine - University at Albany - SUNY
  7. Bill Ritter doing the Sunday 11pm news tonight. He wasn't on at 6. Can't be because of high viewership, since ABC didn't have the Super Bowl. I'm assuming that WCBS will have their regular weekday crew when their news finally comes on (update - they are).
  8. I always used to enjoy The Debrief where he'd go around the newsroom talking to different reporters about their stories. Is this the same format? I guess I'll record tomorrow morning's 10am TINY and see.
  9. Did anyone watch the streaming to see if they ran it? I didn't see any mention of it when they signed off just before 7am. They did start at 4:30, but made no mention of the later start time. And amusingly, WABC started their news at 4am on Tuesday because of the weather.
  10. Today in New York at 7 a.m. — Watch Live Coverage From NBC 4 New York on the NBC New York app and streaming channel – NBC New York I do not intend to be watching live :). And their own schedule also shows the broadcast show starting at 4:30 starting tomorrow. WATCH LIVE: News 4 New York - NBC New York And the ad in the 11pm news says 4:30-7. Have yet to see anything advertising the streaming portion.
  11. Rana said they were starting at 4am Monday on the Sunday 11pm news, so either an old script, or the program guide is wrong. I can't see them making the change mid-week. Will have to check the DVR, since I certainly will not be up at 4am to check live!
  12. Did you check Tuesday and after? It's Early Today at 4am.
  13. Unless the program guide on FiOS is wrong, they're dropping the 4-4:30am segment of Today in New York and will start at 4:30 like everyone else (except WPIX). It shows up for Monday (probably an error), but is showing Early Today after that.
  14. They've switched the 6-7am hour back to the early morning anchors, and Dan and Hazel are now only doing 7-10.
  15. Update - Stacey-Ann was back on Monday and Star says on IG that she'll be back this weekend.
