Morales Follow up


Follow up now on a story we told you about last week.

NBC News and the Today show family have found several ways in recent days to address rumors of a possible staff shake up. The reports included claims that former NBC CT anchor Natalie Morales was being pushed out and that she was in discussions with another network.

Another report suggested that Matt Lauer intervened to save Morales.

Thursday Morales and Willie Geist made light of the recent reporting on air.

It seems everyone is secure for now.

Welcome Home






After time in Burlington, Vermont and Great Falls, Montana – Matt Austin of Simsbury has finally found his way home.

Austin has joined NBC CT as a freelance reporter. He went to college at Syracuse University. He’ll be working weekends at WVIT on general assignment stories.





Regular listeners to NPR may have noticed a change in the Morning Edition newscasts this morning. NPR has shortened the top of the hour newscasts to make more room for the main show.

H/T – to our old friend Mike Allen(former Hartford reporter for the New York Times) of Politico.

MEDIA WATCH — NPR TIME CHANGES — Per NPR: “What very attentive listeners might notice during MORNING EDITION is: Top of the hour newscast will be a minute and half shorter so Morning Edition will start sooner. No NPR newscast at 30 minutes past the hour. Listeners will hear NPR headlines at approximately 20 and 40 minutes past the hour. And for ALL THINGS CONSIDERED: Breaks provided to stations will be longer so they have opportunities to do 4 minute cutaways.”Graphic of New Morning Edition clock New All Things Considered clock:

Francis Claims Bias

204x204-melissa-francisFormer WFSB reporter Melissa Francis, now an anchor at Fox Business, told viewers on her program Friday afternoon that she “was silenced” by management when she worked at CNBC over her reporting on the Affordable Care Act – known by many as “Obamacare.”

Francis charged the “liberal media” is refusing to cover the story of a former Obama administration healthcare consultant who was caught on video tape referring to the American people as “stupid” for believing in the ACA.

Francis made the claim that when she worked for CNBC she was “called in” by management and told she was “disrespecting the Office of the President” by telling her viewers the math of Obamacare simply didn’t work. On Fox, Francis added, every criticism she made against the ACA turned out to be true.
