Scenes from (Almost) Day One at the RNC

This TVNewser arrived in Tampa this morning, just as Tropical Storm Isaac’s outer bands continued to lash Florida’s west coast. The Republican National Convention, already shortened by a day because of Isaac, has changed the plans for some TV news anchors and reporters. But, for now, ABC’S Diane Sawyer, NBC’s Brian Williams and CBS’s Scott Pelley will broadcast Monday’s shows from here in Tampa.

So far we’ve stopped by the outdoor set of MSNBC, where “Hardball” and other shows will originate. We’ll be stopping by “Morning Joe” tomorrow at the Elephant Bar in the Channelside District. MSNBC has space inside the Tampa Bay Times forum as well where Andrea Mitchell is anchoring her show. Bloomberg’s set (below) is across from the Tampa Convention Center. We stopped by as Trish Regan anchored today’s “Street Smart” from the temporary studio, interviewing Lanhee Chen, Mitt Romney‘s policy director.

Former CNN Meteorologist Reynolds Wolf Working for Weather Channel

Former CNN meteorologist Reynolds Wolf has been in the field for the Weather Channel the past couple days reporting on Isaac. This morning, before a liveshot from Miami, Weather Channel anchors re-introduced Wolf to the audience: “He’s reported from all kinds of natural disasters and hurricanes. He’s covered the gulf oil disaster. He’s worked for CNN, and in St. Louis, Orlando and Detroit as a local meteorologist.”

Wolf and CNN meteorologist Jacqui Jeras both left CNN at the end of May. Jeras has since joined WJLA in Washington, DC.
