Tom Lewis Back on TV in Massachusetts

Tom Lewis is the new co-anchor of 40 in the Morning in Massachusetts. Tom has reported in Boston at New England Cable News and worked as a reporter at WTNH-TV in New Haven for the better part of the last 15 years as well as WVIT-TV and WTIC-TV.

Everyone Take a Deep Breath…

Mark Higgins, the VP and General Manager of WTNH, tells The Laurel that “there is no truth to the rumor that Rob Morrison is joining WTNH.”

Rob Morrison was a morning anchor at WVIT, NBC30 before he headed to New York…and a tabloid storm last year. But he may be coming back to this market.

From Newsblues:

Rob Morrison, who resigned as the morning news anchor at WCBS-2 in New York one year ago, has been offered a reporter and weekend news anchor job at WTNH-8-ABC in New Haven, CT (Market #30), NewsBlues has learned.

Morrison is expected to replace Jeff Valin, whose contract expires at the end of the week. 

As happens so often in this business, it’s a personal contact that will allow Morrison to return to TV. His new boss, WTNH News Director Al Carl, is an old friend.

Morrison and his wife, former CBS MoneyWatch anchor Ashley Morrison, live in Darien, CT…about 35 miles from the WTNH-8-ABC studios.

The station is expected to make an announcement soon. We’re told Morrison has satisfied all of his court-ordered obligations from last year’s arrest and he and Ashley have fully reconciled their differences.

Rob was a morning anchor at WVIT (NBC30) before heading to New York.

Avon Residents Fear Radar Poses a Threat to Their Health

1557545_G

WFSB-TV has asked permission to install its Doppler weather radar system, a crucial public safety tool used by meteorologists, at the top of a 110-foot tall tower located on Avon Mountain. But some residents in the area are worried it could be bad for their health and are opposing the station’s proposal.

According to a report from WFSB cited by The Hartford Courant, the Doppler radar emits an electromagnetic radiation that is regulated by the federal government because of its potential impact on people’s health. WFSB insists that the radar will not hurt anyone and says the amount of radiation would be within the limits set by the federal government.

Residents are organizing their own efforts will likely pool their resources to hire their own expert to examine the radiation issue.

Layoffs at the Minuteman Papers

The Westport Minuteman and Fairfield Minuteman newspapers have both let reporters go according to a source that spoke with WestportNow.com. More than 15 other journalists stationed in Connecticut at 21st Century Media and Digital First Media CT have been laid off and that number has risen with the newest addition of several classified advertising employees.

The dismissal reflects a downsizing trend at the two newspapers as the parent company emphasizes its Internet and digital coverage.

House and Haney Take on the Big 5-0

14905264_BG1 14895649_BG2

Judging by the photos above we would have thought these two were turning 25 rather than 50! Eyewitness News anchor and Face the State moderator Dennis House, and meteorologist Scot Haney, are both celebrating their 50th birthdays in the upcoming days.

On Thursday, House will commemorate reaching the half-century mark with a party at Hartford City Hall. All proceeds from the party will go to Interval House, an organization dedicated to providing services to prevent family and intimate partner abuse.

Then on Saturday, Haney will be channeling Don Draper with his “Mad Men” themed “Party Like it’s 1964 Celebration” at Glastonbury Hills Country Club. Proceeds from the evening will benefit Channel 3 Kids Camp in Andover and Coventry.

We just hope that after all this hard partying over the weekend that the WFSB team will make it into work on Monday to give us the news.
