Remember Virginia Cha?

TVSpy reports that Virginia Cha is leaving HLN (formerly Headline News) for the ABC affiliate in San Diego (KGTV). Virginia is an WFSB alum who co-anchored the mornings with then-new guy Dennis House during the mid-90s. She graduated from Princeton, was a Fulbright scholar and first runner-up in the 1990 Miss America pageant. After 3 years at “Broadcast House” she left for an anchor/reporter job in Boston and moved on from there.

Register Reorg

The New Haven Register is announcing a reorganization of its newsroom staff, including the return of an investigative unit (it’s been 20 years). New duties are in store for newsroom veterans Michelle Tuccitto Sullo, Mary O’Leary, Angela Carter, Ed Stannard,  Cara Baruzzi and Angel Diggs.

WTNH’s Newest Morning Anchor

Anne Craig, who has been anchoring the weekend morning news at WTNH, will be filling the weekday spot vacated by Kristen Cusato;  she will co-anchor “Good Morning Connecticut” Monday through Friday alongside Chris Velardi, meteorologist Gil Simmons and traffic reporter Teresa LaBarbera.

Anne joined WTNH as a reporter/anchor in early September, coming from Fox 5/WNYW in New York City where she was an anchor/reporter.

Morning Politics

Communications consultant Patrick Scully reports that he has been asked to appear weekly on the Fox CT morning news as its political analyst (a role he has filled on a semi-regular basis in the past). Pat, pictured on the left with anchor Logan Byrnes, is a former Director of Communications and Media for the state Senate Democrats. We’re just askin’…..will any CT Repbulicans object to Fox CT using a Democrat as its sole political analyst?

The CT Mirror, a non-profit news site, has started accepting advertising. Until recently it relied on sponsorships and contributions:

The Connecticut Mirror does not accept political campaign advertising.  Political campaign advertising includes advertising on behalf of or in opposition to a candidate or slate of candidates for elective office, whether placed by a candidate, political party, PAC, corporation, individual or other entity.  It may at times include issue based advertising, when a particular issue is closely identified with a candidate or candidates.  The Mirror accepts affirmative advertising from issue groups that does not endanger its nonprofit or nonpartisan status, is in sync with its mission of promoting civic engagement and civil, informed discourse, and which is not political campaign advertising.
