Channel 4 reports the rabbit-ear set should be able to pick up its signals again (story not for acrophobes due to photo of technician hanging onto the side of the antenna 1,200 feet up).
WBZ was having its issues this afternoon, or, as Barry Burbank put it:
Problems At The Transmitter! OUCH!
He added he's "highly confident" the problems will be fixed before the Patriots game tomorrow.
Just ask WBZ's Steve Burton.
New England One reports reporter investigative reporter Lauren Leamanczyk is leaving for a job on a Minneapolis station's equivalent of WBZ's I-Team. She's the 18th newsroom staffer to leave Channel 4 in a little more than a year.
WBZ traffic reporter Kristen Eck discusses her transition from Scott Eck.
Channel 4 has fired News Director Gary LaPlante, about a year and a half after it hired him away from Channel 25.
WBZ reports on Chayet's 10,000th "Looking at the Law" episode, which aired today.
News One reports on the WBZ (and previously WFXT) reporter, says he's leaving for a job that will give him more time with his family.
Mark Katic, who started at WBZ in 1999 by filling in on sports reports, then moved to news reporting and anchoring, died today, colleagues say.
Lana Jones, a fellow NewsRadio reporter, tweeted:
Remembering a warm, generous man who brought insight and unbridled enthusiasm to the WBZ newsroom. Rest in peace, Mark Katic.
He leaves his wife and daughter.
Neumeier, who spent 20 years at WBZ before moving to CSNE, is in the hospital today after a stroke Wednesday night, WBZ reports.
The station wishes them well. Shortsleeve had been with the station for 20 years.
WBZ reports Williams, who has been with the station for 39 years, will continue to serve as a substitute anchor and will continue his work on "Wednesday's Child."
WBZ announces it's giving Jen Brien the mike between midnight and 5 a.m.
"The Jen Brien Show" will be a mix of pop culture, current events, politics, and the comings and goings of people in New England. Brien replaces Steve LeVeille who retired last year.
Maybe the same person who thought it would be a good idea to have Williams and Lisa Hughes anchor the news while standing outside in the station parking lot. Williams, being a man's man, of course, just stood there without a hat. They finally got him back inside, and by the looks of things just in time - his face was bright red.
WBZ announced today that the longtime overnight talk host is retiring at the end of the week. In a statement, WBZ NewsRadio Director of News and Programming Peter Casey said:
Steve called yesterday and informed me of his decision. Although it came as a surprise, I do know Steve enjoys his time in Maine and had always thought that he would retire there sometime. I just didn't think it would be this soon. Steve has been a tremendously creative broadcaster and friend to the overnight audience here at WBZ, and he will be missed.
Michael Page alerts us that CBS is getting ready to smush all its Boston stations (Channel 4, WBZ 1030, Channel 38 and 98.5) into a single CBS Boston site with local news, sports and service-y type stuff all wrapped up under an emphasis on the CBS-ness of it all - four years after Channel 4 started calling itself WBZ again instead of CBS 4 Boston.
LeVeille isn't on WBZ 1030 this week and some anxious fans are wondering.
UPDATE: Just heard from one of those people in A Position to Know, who says there's nothing sinister going on: LeVeille had a cold last week and now he's on vacation: "He hasn't been purged again!"
