Re: Job Opening: Chief Evening Meteorologist, Fox 47 WSYM

I watched a newscast on 47 today for the first time since their awful launch at the beginning of 2021. Back then it was an embarrassingly bad newscast. What I saw was a great improvement. Gone is the anchorless news which was a horrible decision which fortunately they corrected. While weather is sti...

WKAR-AM Translator

The translator on 105.1 will be moving to 102.3 at noon on Wednesday. This will be the second move. Looks like more changes in store in the future.

Mallory Anderson Leaves WILX

Mallory Anderson’s last day was today. After 4 years at WILX she is moving to KRDO in Colorado Springs. David Andrews will move to mornings until a replacement is hired.

Re: Darrin Rockcole is Back on WILX

With Emily gone to Chicago, WILX has promoted Darrin Rockcole and hired a 4th meteorologist. While there has been no announcement, Blake Hansen is my guess. He left 7 & 4 today saying he wouldn’t be moving very far away. His twitter posts are being liked by Justin Bradford.

Re: WILX Mornings

The day before Emily was supposed to start -- she got an offer somewhere else out of state and told Wilx she was leaving. Whole plan blew up on them. A year getting paid to do nothing at WILX completely worthless. So, back to Darrin whose retirement happened before Emily was even in the picture. Lo...

Re: WILX Mornings

Beginning on Monday… Are you sure? Obviously, things have recently changed. Darrin said a couple weeks ago he would be splitting weekends and the 11am news. He announced he would be taking over mornings next week this am. They also had an ad campaign for Emily joining on the air beginning today air...

I enjoy viewing Mallory Anderson in the mornings but I do miss Claire Cameron. I thought that Emily Wahls would become a weathercaster. Where is she?

Re: Really WSYM? This is News?

Just noticed WSYM has added news anchors…to no one’s surprise the anchorless experiment was a disaster.

Re: New 11 AM Newscast on WILX beginning Sept. 6th

So they moved the Noon news to 11am Sent from my SM-G970U using Tapatalk Yup. Doesn’t compete with 6 (or 47) and will make broadcast available for immediate playback for those who want to watch the news during their lunch on phones/computers. Justin Bradford (3 days) and Darrin Rockcole (2 days) wi...

Re: Darrin Rockcole is Back on WILX

IMO -WILX should have kept Caleb Meute instead of bringing back DR ...... Caleb was good with his delivery and has many years ahead of him. In hindsight they could have. With the upcoming (August 30) return of Emily Wahls Caleb was told his position was being reduced from full-time. He quit and Dar...

Re: Darrin Rockcole is Back on WILX

Interesting…so beginning August 30th Emily Wahls will take over mornings (confirmed by Darrin Rockcole), Justin Bradford will apparently be splitting weekends with Rockcole, and Andy Pro remain in the evenings. Darrin on his Facebook page says he will be doing some weekend slots and will be involved...

Re: Darrin Rockcole

New ad says without saying that WILX chief meteorologist Emily Wahls will begin on the air at WILX on August 30th after her one year of non-compete ends. I assume she will take over mornings.

Re: Weather Games

There is a pic on his Facebook page (Kyle Gillett). Since you can’t see his pants it almost looks normal.
