Jenn Bernstein Rejoins FOX CT News Team

the laurel pic

FOX CT News has announced that Jennifer Bernstein has rejoined its news team and will begin on the air August 4th. Jenn worked as a journalist for FOX CT News from 2010-2012, and was, in the station’s words, “the station’s first true multimedia journalist.” Her dedication and innovative work garnered her both an Emmy nomination and the honor of being named “Tribune’s Outstanding Employee of 2010″. After she left the station in 2012, Jenn worked for KYW, Philadelphia’s CBS affiliate, where she covered local and national stories, including the Penn State sex abuse scandal and the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. She will anchor FOX CT News at 4 as well as co-anchoring “The Real Story” with Al Terzi. We’re glad to see her back in the market.

NBC CT adding to the Sunday Political Talk

The political season is upon us (wait, you hadn’t noticed?) so the timing is good for NBC CT to launch a Sunday morning political interview program. “Decision 2014″ will air at 10 am as a lead-in to “Meet the Press”. Hosts will include Gerry Brooks, Todd Piro and George Coli. The show will run from now until Election Day. Kudos to the management of NBC CT, whose predecessors relegated Tom Monahan’s “Newsmakers” to 6 am and eventually put it to sleep. It’s great to see more on-air political discourse.

Domestic Dispute Involving Married News Anchors

Ashley and Rob Morrison
Former NBC 30 anchor Rob Morrison had a serious brush with the law this weekend. Morrison was arrested on Sunday, Feb. 17, on charges of second-degree strangulation, second-degree threatening and disorderly conduct following a domestic violence incident with his wife, Ashley. Ashley also worked at NBC30 – she did a brief reporting stint at the station. The couple lives in Darien. Here’s a scene from happier times.

After working as a morning anchor at NBC 30, Rob went on to anchor/reporter duties at WNBC-TV.  He appeared regularly on NBC’s Weekend Today and MSNBC. He then moved on to WCBS-TV where he anchors the morning and noon newscasts.

His wife, Ashley Morrison, served as an air anchor/reporter with Bloomberg television (BTV) from 2007-2009. She is currently an anchor for CBS Moneywatch.
