With over 13 hours of news every weekday, they need all the weather people they can get. And maybe Andre is planning to retire soon. He’s looking quite grizzled.I think Andre is gonna be dragged out the door kicking and screaming. He’s going to end up being the “Dick Goddard” of his generation, being on the air ten years longer than he should have been.I agree, no way is he leaving!
The Wittman/Dufala/Reed “19 Action News” era was all about being aggressive and was unapologetically tabloid.
The Robinson/Nolan “Cleveland 19” era was all about being prim, proper, kinder, and gentler
On first look, the Tucker/Tanaka “19 News” era looks to be a bit more hard hitting, but without going overboard – kind of the Goldylocks theory of not too hot, not too cold – trying to be “just right”…we’ll see.
Maybe they can bring back Sharon Reed. Just kidding.
They can have her back. She’s running the CBS affiliate in Atlanta into the ground. Ratings have tanked even more since her arrival.
Not that it was that much of an accomplishment, that station has been a non-factor in the Atlanta news race for years and years.
Recorded in Ultra Stereo, the ultimately superior cousin to Normal Stereo!
“19 News?” What’s old is new again.

That was during that transitional period between “Hometeam 19” and “Action News”.
19/43 used the “Hometeam” branding from 1999 until the end of 2001 as they had the free TV rights to the Tribe and Cavs on 43 and (because of the CBS contract) 19 showed the bulk of the Browns games.
When the Indians bailed after the end of the ’01 season (to be exclusive on Fox Sports Ohio), 19/43 dropped the “Hometeam” banner, and after an interim period became CBS 19 and 43 The Block in the spring of 2002, and branded their newscasts as “19 Action News”…and we all know how that went.
