Have you heard of the news app Watchup?

It lets you build your own newscast, based on available content, for viewing on your phone or tablet.

Now, Fox CT, is part of the Watchup line up after Tribune Media signed a partnership deal with the app company. In addition to Fox CT, the deal involves local stations in almost thirty local markets.



Fox CT newsroom employees have voted in support of unionization.

It’s the second time in the last two years there’s been an attempt to organize the small staff at channel 61. The first vote failed. The final vote this time was 35 to 17.


Speaking of Fox CT…


…management isn’t saying anything about it, but the Manchester based Journal Inquirer is reporting that the National Association of Broadcast Employees and Technicians – Communications Workers of America, is trying to unionize Fox CT.

The union is petitioning for an employee election.

The move comes less than a year after Tribune Company, which owns both the Hartford Courant and Fox CT, split into two companies. Tribune Publishing for print and Tribune Media for broadcasting and other outlets.

The request for the election has been filed with the National Labor Relations Board.

New Sets


Work continues on a new set for the Fox CT news team.

The daily news shows are being produced from a temporary set. Laurel readers may have noticed that the Real Story has featured the same guests for the past several weeks. That’s because they’re waiting for the new set to be built out.

The same is true over at WFSB: new set on the way. In the meantime the news shows are being broadcast from the “Better CT” and “Face the State” sets.

2013 Shaping Up to be a Great Year for Anthony DiLorenzo

 Anthony DiLorenzo

Suffield’s own Anthony DiLorenzo is leaving Fox CT after two years as a reporter and morning fill-in anchor. It’s for lots of good reasons…he’s moving to Orlando to be with his fiance, Kala Rama, who’s an anchor/reporter at WKMG in Orlando. Both are Connecticut natives and met while working at WWLP in Springfield. Anthony has landed a job at Orlando’s ABC affiliate, WFTV. Congratulations to them!
