Donnie Cox is doing a good job for News 12 so far I think. He also has a good personality, and not dry like some are.

WITN put out their ACC tournament broadcast schedules for this week.

WITN 7.1 is airing afternoon games that few people around here care about and bumping night games, including NC State, to 7.2.

Are they just absolutely terrified to pre-empt NBC?

Friday's semifinals and Saturday's final are on 7.1 in primetime; NBC is on 7.2 both nights.

BTW, WUND (and all UNCTV stations) shouldn't have a .5 subchannel.

Friday and Saturday, not Tuesday or Wednesday (or Thursday?)

UNC has not had a .5 in many years. 6+ at least.

These stations have management that are not familiar with the way things have always been done in this area... They do it "their" way. I will find another channel.

I think UNC still has 5 channels on TWC but hasn't had 5 OTA channels in over 10 years.

I thought we had a discussion at one time about the station hourly ID's?

I have seen WCTI airing these ID's with Morehead City being listed first, and Greenville being listed first. Also WYDO similarly, with New Bern first. If I remember correctly, this is wrong. I thought the city of license had to be listed first or the only listing during the top of the hour ID?

It may have been that someone before didn't include their call letters, and I think it was 9.

I know. Why do they need one with "Newschannel" ? It would be better if they just had the "12" and would flash it every now and then instead of keeping it on steady.

WCTI's general manager departed recently for WIS-TV in Columbia, SC. Maybe some new blood will freshen up WCTI a bit. The branding and news product has become REALLY stale.

It seems they're doing news on Saturdays at both 6:00pm and 7:00pm now? Seems kind of like a waste unless they're prepping to do this M-F as sister station WNCN does.

They've been doing this for quite a while. I see no change after or on 4-4. Did they forget?

WITN has changed chief weatherman. All the long timers are now reduced or gone around here. Everyone I talk to is watching 9 these days. Now is a real opportunity for 9 and 12 to go at them hard when storms turn ugly.

Matt is pretty good. I'd watch him other the others easily. He reminds me of a young Greg Fishel (WRAL).

Jim Howard has been there so long, and covers the area well. I would have thought he should move up. Of course everyone has their favorite personalities.

Long before 4/4 I was told by someone on good authority that WNCT had hired a 6pm co-anchor to finally replace Jeff Varner. I'm wondering if that was the announcement, but the hire fell through.

Matt is a great choice for chief at WITN. Hopefully he will stick around. He is very active on Social media also.

Matt has been on the main newscasts for a while now. He and Phillip are by far the best they have. Jim is not a good weather guy. It is funny that both WITN and WNCT have their former chiefs still on the air and ITN also has Phillip who was also a Chief Met. I really think this move actually makes ITN stronger not weaker.

Also, I saw that Carly Swain is no longer with WITN. They announced she was leaving but did not say where she is going which is unusual. Is it possible that she is going to WNCT? I know she was at WCTI before. Does ITN have non-compete clauses?

Jim is perfect for what he does, weather on a "Today" show style morning show.

Hmmmm. Usually they announce if they are going out of the market. Maybe she is going to 9. Put her on the air with Katie Harden.

You guys said though that Les Still should have been Chief at 12, yet he isn't as good as Jim Howard IMO. Jim to me is about the best there is besides Phillip on channel 7.

Les Still has a more professional demeanor. I thought he would have been good as chief/PM news.

I think Katie Harden is great and am glad she is anchoring the weekend news. I hope they will keep her happy so she will stay in Eastern NC. She has big time talent.

Carly took a job out of the area, and not in TV.
