A Murrow for Holt


Congratulations to WFSB sportscaster John Holt who has won a regional Murrow Award and will now compete for a national Murrow. John’s winning entry was his story about East Lyme’s John McDonald who hit a heartfelt home run for the Toronto Blue Jays on Father’s Day.

Hooray for Harriet

WNPR Business Reporter Harriet Jones, she of the charming British accent, has won the 2011 Edward R. Murrow Award for Continuing Coverage in Region 10 (large market/New England). She was honored for her coverage of flooding in southeastern Connecticut, its aftermath, and the impact on the local business community.

Layoffs at The Day

Another Firing at WTNH

A memo went out to WTNH staff today from the General Manager indicating that Ted Koppy is no longer with the station. A few years back Ted was the 6, 10 and 11 pm co-anchor and was then moved over to general assignment reporting. Now he’s “out”. We’re sorry to hear this.

Tom’s Still on the Beat

It was with great pleasure that we learned Tom “Senator” Monahan is still roaming the state capitol on behalf of NBC Connecticut. Tom officially retired last year, but as mentioned at the time, he has remained on staff  to cover the legislative session a few days a week.  He indicates that this arrangement is likely to continue past the June adjournment.

Blumer on the other “Face”

Face the Nation 2010.jpg

According to the listings, Connecticut’s freshman U.S. Senator Richard Blumenthal will appear on “Face the Nation” this Sunday. We could be wrong, but might this be the first national “Sunday Show” appearance for him since getting elected?
