No More Local Morning News on Detroit’s WWJ

CBS owned station WWJ has announced it will be dropping its morning news show, “First Forecast Mornings.”

The final broadcast for “First Forecast Mornings” will be Friday, December 28.

Broadcasting & Cable reported the station will fill the morning slot with a combination of CBS network news from 5 to 6 a.m. and “Dr. Phil” from 6 to 7 a.m.

Syma Chowdhry and weather anchor Jill Washburn tried, and failed, to execute a visual trick on a recent WKBD morning newscast (video above).

Chowdry attempted to “hand” Washburn a piece of Halloween candy through the screen behind her, but the producer in Washburn’s live shot handed her the candy on the wrong side of the shot. “We’ve messed it up three times now,” Washburn said. “You see this candy? It’s mine now.”

VIDEO: Wardrobe Malfunction Nearly Derails WWJ Morning News

Anchor Syma Chowdhry was the victim of a wardrobe malfunction while on today’s “First Forecast Mornings” show on Detroit CBS affiliate WWJ.

The belt holding Chowdhry’s mic pack popped off shortly after the station returned from a break leading the anchor, between laughs, to ask the control room, “Can Randy do his traffic first, you guys?”

The “Randy” she was referring to was co-anchor Randy Bhirdo, who took control of the situation by urging his now belt-less and mic-less co-anchor “get herself together” off camera before carrying on with the traffic report.  You can watch the video of the malfunction after the jump.
