Former WTNH weather forecaster Erika Martin is joining WCAU in Philadelphia as a weekend meteorologist. She has also worked at WCBS and WPIX in New York and WSHM in Springfield, MA.

Last week we told you Alyana Gomez was leaving NBC CT for San Francisco. We now know she will be joining KTVU as weekend morning anchor once she gets there. KTVU is a Fox station.

Pauley Sunday Morning


Occasional Connecticut resident Jane Pauley is taking over the role of host of CBS Sunday Morning.

The news was announced this weekend on the final broadcast hosted by Charles Osgood. Pauley is only the third host of the program. Before Osgood, Charles Kuralt served as the first host of the show.

In November, Pauley – who owns a house in Branford –  will be inducted into the Connecticut Women’s Hall of Fame.



Over the weekend WFSB traffic reporter – and so much more – Nicole Nalepa got married to Andrew Balise. The two met when they worked together at WWLP in Springfield.

Back in three weeks!

Worth Noting


Tina Martin. The former WFSB anchor/reporter picked up an award in personal finance reporting from the National Endowment for Financial Education. Martin now works for WGBH and contributes reporting to the PBS Newshour, NPR and the Huffington Post.

Lester Holt. Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are not the only ones preparing this weekend for the first presidential debate on Monday night. The NBC News anchor will moderate the first meeting between Clinton and Trump. This week it was revealed Holt is a registered Republican in New York state. The news came after Trump claimed the debates are rigged and that Holt is a Democrat. Wrong! Issue number 3…

The Intern. The news investigative website Honolulu Civil Beat has a new intern. He’s 72 with no specific background in journalism, but lots of real life experience. If the experiment works out, the site is planning to start a Kupuna Fellows program. Kupuna means: revered elders. Issue numba four…

Speaking of revered elders. In Connecticut journalism there is only one Mark Davis and he is Chief Capitol Correspondent for News 8. But in Vermont, they also have a Mark Davis and he works for the website SevenDaysVT.
