On WBZ Reporter’s First Day, a Memorable Moment on National TV

chris2Chalk it up to a memorable first day. Chris McKinnon started as a reporter at Boston CBS O&O WBZ Thursday, and had a chance to do a live hit on national TV. Fantastic, right?

McKinnon’s package on a shark attack in Plymouth, Massachusetts aired and McKinnon tossed back to Charlie Rose and Gayle King. Then he walked out of frame. And yes, he was still live on CBS. Not quite as fantastic!

Enjoy, after the jump.

Chris Wragge on WCBS: ‘I’m Going to Do Whatever the Hell They Want Me to Do’

Chris Wragge is recommitting his time to WCBS, following a year hosting “The Early Show,” and he says he’ll do whatever GM Peter Dunn and news director David Friend ask of him.

“It’s up to Peter and David.  I am strictly at their mercy,” Wragge told FishbowlNY on Tuesday, talking about his return to WCBS where Maurice DuBois is now top anchor.  “I’m just going to do whatever the hell they want me to do.”

Wragge has been co-anchoring WCBS’s 6 p.m. newscast since the beginning of September, in addition to appearing on “The Early Show,” but his role on the morning show will significantly decrease January 9th as Charlie Rose and Gayle King take over.

Wragge says he plans to come back to “The Early Show” at some point, though: “I’m being benched for a little while, but there is a second half.” Read more at FishbowlNY

Chris Wragge Rejoins WCBS Full-Time, As CBS Again Overhauls ‘The Early Show’

With Charlie Rose and Gayle King set to take over on CBS’ “The Early Show,” Chris Wragge will officially return to WCBS full-time.

Wragge made the move to “The Early Show” from WCBS last December in the last major talent overhaul  at the CBS News morning show. In August, it was announced that Wragge would return to the CBS owned-and-operated station as the 6 p.m. anchor.

“CBS has been my home since 2004 and will be for the foreseeable future in whatever capacity they want,” Wragge told the New York Times. “I am loyal and grateful to CBS.”

An official announcement is expected Tuesday, according to TVNewser.  Read more at TVNewser

New Hampshire’s WBIN Teams Up With Bloomberg TV For GOP Presidential Debate

WBIN, an independent station serving Boston and New Hampshire, is teaming up with Bloomberg TV and the Washington Post to present a Republican presidential debate focused on the economy.

The debate, slated for October 11, will air on both WBIN and Bloomberg TV. It will be moderated by Charlie Rose, who will ask candidates to detail their job-creation proposals while seated at a round table, surrounded by audience members at Dartmouth College.

WBIN, formerly known as MyNetworkTV affiliate WMYZ, was purchased earlier this year by Carlisle One Media. The station, which has not produced a local newscast since 2009, added a 10 p.m. newscast — anchored by Amanda Decker and Kyle Dennis — to their programming lineup last week. Read more
