KUSA’s Kyle Dyer Appears on ‘Today’

After sharing her story in an interview on KUSA last week, Kyle Dyer appeared on NBC’s “Today” this morning.

Dyer spoke in detail with Ann Curry about her physical recovery, saying that she hasn’t considered how the change in her appearance will affect her on-air career.

“I’ve never been freaked out or worried or scared,” Dyer told Curry. “I just knew it was all going to work out” (video above).

Reporting on the Red Sox Collapse, Boston Stations Feel City’s Pain

Boston stations spent significant time this morning reporting on the Boston Red Sox, who were shut out of the postseason last night in a late-inning loss that completed a painful September slide, leaving sports-obsessed Boston in mourning.

“Red Sox fans waking up with broken hearts and massive headaches as hopes of the postseason are long gone,” WFXT anchor Gene Lavanchy said soberly at the top of the 6:30 a.m. broadcast.

WBZ‘s David Robichaud and WCVB‘s Kelly Tuthill (who described her live shot as “like the weather — it’s dreary, it’s damp, it’s miserable”) were at Fenway Park to cover the team’s arrival in Boston. “I have a feeling not many of them will want to speak,” Robichaud said shortly before the Red Sox pulled in.

With Snow Storms Rocking New York, Flagship Stations Forgo Network Morning Shows

As snow storms rocked the New York area on Monday morning, stations expanded their local coverage in lieu of the regularly scheduled network morning shows.

WABC powered through the morning with local coverage, forgoing “Good Morning America.”  WABC’s expanded morning newscast featured weather reporting from senior meteorologist Bill Evans and traffic updates from Joe Nolan. Anchors Ken Rosato and Michelle Charlesworth checked in with reporters NJ Burkett and Lisa Colagrossi, who both covered delays on local commuter trains, as well as Jamie Roth, who covered the status of flights at LaGuardia Airport.  At one point, Charlesworth underscored the newscast’s warnings about the dangerous commuting conditions by saying that the WABC morning news team did not commute to work that morning, rather they slept the previous night in a hotel just four blocks away from the studio.


WNBC went with the regularly scheduled “Today” at 7:00 a.m. with Ann Curry and Lester Holt starting off the broadcast with coverage of the blizzard.  By the 8:00 o’clock hour, though, WNBC had switched to full local coverage of the weather.  The special coverage was anchored by Pat Battle and Erika Tarantal. NBC correspondent Peter Alexander provided a traffic report while driving through New Jersey and reporter Deborah Tamborski spoke to those that braved the commute on Long Island. Katy Tur stayed close to WNBC’s 30 Rock studio, reporting on Manhattan traffic conditions near Central Park. Read more
