Bolaris In Philly Mag

There is a blurb about Fox29 weather anchor John Bolaris in the new issue of Philadelphia magazine.

In another weather note, former weekend weather anchor Karen Thomas has been filling in on Fox lately.

Whose Snow Coverage Did You Watch

I watched lots of Fox29 and 6ABC. Good Day Philadelphia stayed on the air for a gut-busting 7 hours.

6ABC To Start 4 P.M. Newscast

6ABC will launch a 4 p.m. newscast with news anchors Brian Taff and Shirleen Alicott in May after Oprah ends her 25 year run.

We hear that Adam Joseph and new reporter Alicia Vitarelli will also be part of the newscast.

I Want Joy Back At 9

I’m disappointed they moved Joy Behar to 10 p.m. I’m sure HLN moved her not to compete with sister station CNN’s new Piers Morgan show, but I’d rather watch Joy over Piers at 9.

See Oprah in Person

6ABC is giving you a chance to see the Oprah show in person.  I would love to win that.  Oprah has been great this year.
