  1. Ehh I know in terms of promotion that’s generally how it works but sometimes folks do pass on that am slot . You have no life and you wake up at 1:30 am and go to bed at 7:30 . I would be good too.
  2. Slap in the face to Robb Ellis and yes Brads days are probably limited . Will likely be replaced by Rob Nelson considering NewsNation was a flop and he came from WABC.
  3. You have to remember no one wants to work at KCBS . New Orleans is still a major city . Maybe some of that southern charm may come in handy that’s what that station needs.
  4. Same boring presentation, music, and content new name and set.
  5. Might as missed this… and this might have been going on for awhile but im usually not home this early why is Let’s Make a Deal on at 2pm?
  6. I’m late I think, they used the new stand up area in the old weather center for the sports report tonight. Did they just start using it ?
  7. They need someone who has name recognition maybe they should just use Charlie Rose … just kidding
  8. Oooh Tim is cheating on CBS 2 with FOX 32 I’m telling
  9. CBS 2 broke in as soon as the tornado warnings were first issued . FOX 32 was on with Mark Strehl as well Kaitlyn and Mike joined soon thereafter. Channel 7 did not break in until WFLD confirmed there was a confirmed tornado over Beecher . WMAQ has a much stronger case because the Olympics are much more prestigious, and they were on in the heart of the danger, but WLS couldn’t break in for a soccer game come on…. WGN was on the whole time but coverage is weak. In severe weather it should be mandatory to break in I don’t care if it’s the Super Bowl , T storms are different but if there is a tornado on the ground there should be breaking weather coverage WMAQ especially WLS hesitated and dropped the ball.
  10. This is a very dangerous situation and WLS has the poorest coverage due to sports coverage . WFLD WBBM are solid WGN is running on fumes. WMAQ leeks going in and out due to the Olympics
  11. Channel 5 had the best coverage Channel 7 was fine . Channel 2 did a good job Jim Williams held things together. Don’t know about Channel 9 didn’t watch much but they appeared solid. Channel 32 was on and off all night and was running on fumes with their smaller weather team They kept going in and out I think she was by herself , not last year because there really wasn’t any major coverage if I can recall however before WFLD had more meteorologists (not now) because they canned Bill if it was just Bill or Mark they would say let me get the latest warnings and we will be right back stay tuned they are both great meteorologists but it’s only so much one weather man and a producer can do.
  12. They are all still going wow I’m impressed
  13. Noooo that is misleading WMAQ WLS and WGN all tied with a 1.4. WGN hit the 1.4 at 9pm. WMAQ and WLS have 1.4 at 10pm. WGN has 1.0 at 10pm. WFLD’s late news is at a 0.8. WBBM is running on fumes at 0.4. So technically you are right but it’s not the whole story. I’ve been watching WMAQ , WLS is too sterile , WGN is too boring , WBBM good investigating reporting but everything else is a nightmare, and WFLD ticked me off when they got rid of Bill Bellis.
  14. While their set as aged very well , I do not see why they don’t do a complete overhaul.
  15. I don’t think KYW got a new desk just the new monitors
  16. Mary Kay is having a technical meltdown on Channel 2 as of right now no weather forecast as she cannot be heard
  17. It was a joke I honestly think management is looking for a excuse to get rid of a million dollar salary.
  18. WFLD in Chicago has main team Sunday thru Thursday as more people watch on Sundays compared to Fridays.
  19. I wish they would stop promote Mike or Mark already and stop having Kaitlyn Cody do the weather . They are regressing I’ve been watching WFLD since they’ve gotten their news set redone but I think I’m going to go back to watching WMAQ
  20. Probably will not happen I believe they are just trying to cut people not find a replacement. They only had 3 meteorologists for years until they hired Mike
  21. I say they should give Mike the top spot . They need to put Mark back on mornings as I don’t believe a almost 20 year veteran should be on weekends. As well as I’m not a fan of Kaitlyn Cody . I also hope Bill can find his way to another Chicago station maybe Channel 2 as he’s a great meteorologist
  22. They finally woke up and smelled the coffee it’s been on the market more than a year and they haven’t had any bites. Now there is more retail space than ever. They finally realized they won’t be getting any bites anytime soon . Might as well put the space to use
  23. Why does WBBM have news on at 6:30 tonight . They usually air Entertainment Tonight at 6:30
