She replaces Charlie "Thurston P. Howell III" Tinker in the process...

LIFE ANNOUNCEMENT: My time at 9&10 News is coming to an end and this will be my last day on-air. I'm so thankful for this opportunity and want to thank each and every one of you for welcoming me into your homes for the past 2 years. Northern Michigan will always have a special place in my heart and I'm going to miss it here very much. I've been able to have new experiences, make memories and create strong friendships I will cherish forever.

I will be moving back to Florida to live with my fiance and be closer to my family. I'm not sure where life will take me next but I'm excited to find out. Thank you again Northern Michigan!

'tis the season of a new crop of broadcasting graduates. Expect to see many more new faces infiltrating the market's 2 stations with 4 logos soon, if not already...

I had an interesting conversation yesterday about reporter compensation. Starting reporters at 7 - 4 are earning $13.50 an hour. Photogs (which have all but been eliminated)earn even less than that.

9-10 may pay higher, but non-prime time anchors are not likely topping $38,000.

Northern MI, 120th market... do you expect a reporter to make $50k here?

And as for 'new crop of graduates'... 9&10 is the one that does that almost every year. 7&4 does not, to my knowledge anyway.

Given the fact that the median income in the United States is $56,000 it's a bit surprising how you can make more washing dishes in Traverse City than being a reporter.

If you say so...

I believe I saw this one co-anchoring the 7&4 11pm 'cast (after the f-bomb-laced St. Louis Stanley Cup celebration in Boston) last night:

Meanwhile, looks like BV&10 has a new 'forecaster' in Samantha Jacques:

Ok, 7&4 hasn't done that in recent times. But I suppose Sinclair is different.
