Well Michael Behrens isn't going to be chief at 13. He's moving to Columbus Ohio. Guess Sam will end up chief. I wonder if they hire Kolton Woods?
Is Michael going to TEGNA's sister station in Columbus or is he leaving the business?

If it's Columbus, OH, he's headed to WBNS channel 10.

WBNS was #1 undisputably for years in Columbus, but ever since ownership changed from a local group to corporate behemoths starting four or five years ago, that's changed completely.

WSYX, WCMH and WBNS are now locked in a tight battle.
Morgan Wallen is a piece of garbage.

Maybe 13 will do the same with the weather as they have with the sports reports. Just completely ignore it.

Juliette will be doing news, weather and sports at 6 and 11. When she leaves the station will just shut down.

The new meteorologist is Amber Twardy from South Bend. She grew up in the Grand Rapids area. I think she went to an OK Red School.
