It says a lot about TV5 when someone leaves and goes to a market size that’s rated lower than Flint-Saginaw.

BTW - I saw her Saturday morning on TV10 there = thought initially she was filling in or working there as a second job

What was the reason for her departure at the big nickel?

She moved for family reasons, not market size.

She was no Daphne, so Ian could care less. At least there will be stability for her. A trainee will be hired to replace her at half the cost. At one time, there were 5!! in weather hired. The times have changed, and WNEM has gone to a cheaper weather service.

Claire's leaving has nothing to do with WNEM's new slant on conservative reporting paralleling that of WEYI/WSMH. There aren't too many pleased with them trying to become a local Fox News variant, but it is the audience they are aiming for. whitebalance is correct. Her hours were all across the board.

Difference is 5's conservative bent is a local choice. 25-66's is not and doesn't extend into their local reporting.

As far as 5's Weather Team, let's hope they bring on more Michael Behrens and Dan Girouxs... :red

I saw Dan when staying up in Marquette and Escanaba a couple years back. I thought for sure he would never leave that market because he was so bad, along with his voice. I apparently was wrong but it doesn’t surprise me that channel 5 was the one that hired him

WNEM's new slant on conservative reporting
Geez, I don't see that at all. I see just the opposite. Seems their heads are so far up the DNC's ass, it would take the Jaws of Life to it it out. That coupled and with their constant thirst for bashing Pres Trump on a daily basis.
Her hours were all across the board.
I think her last assignment was the morning news (noon to 6:00pm). But seem she seemed to be all over the place. I can't blame her for moving on.

Conservative slant? I don’t know how you can say that about 25. Sure, it’s conservative columnist president personally invited candidate Trump to speak in Flint and the station failed to disclose that, but what else do you have on it?

Interestingly, she is going by Claire Phillips when on 47 and Claire Cameron on 10. Why in the same market and studio?

I see it didn't take long for TMZ5 to hire a replacment. Babbling Bryan introduced Kyle Miller (a Michigan native) to fill in Claire's spot today.

Kylee is another cast off from 25. Once again, great hiring by Ian. Can't make it at the #3 station in the market, come on over to WNEM... we'll leave the lights on for ya.

5 is going to a conservative slant to please the Koch brothers. The Time Magazine purchase will be just the start.
