    Scrubbed from the website and his Twitter account no longer mentions WEWS. Round 2 of Trent Magill, word is that he will be the new Chief Meteorologist. Last I saw of MJ was 2-3 nights ago and it sounded like he was losing his voice again. Maybe from having a screaming match with management after learning he was being replaced? I think he’s got too much name recognition in the market to remain unemployed for long. Just hope whomever hires him reigns in his tendency to fire up his Doppler of Death/The World Is Ending forecasts anytime there is even a slight hint of possible severe weather within 300 miles of Northeast Ohio.

    I thought Trent was heading to GMC on weekdays.  That is a shock if Mark is indeed gone from News 5.  He’s been at the station for 25 years, and is still popular.  Where could he end up?

    Maybe he could go to Fox 8.  After all, they have about 14 hours of “news” every day.  And Andre is looking quite grizzled.  Maybe they can offer him a buyout.

    Woah!!! There is no room on any Cleveland Stations for Mark.

     

    Trent appears to be his replacement.  NOT a good one either.

    I wonder if Tanchak might move from 19/43 to 5?

    Mark has now gone to Twitter and Facebook to announce Trent’s return, and that both men will be part of the weather team come January.

    Well that surely turned around! Weird! Why did Mark remove his ch. 5 associations from both accounts??

    Johnson isn’t going anywhere.

    Magill returns to Good Morning Cleveland on January 7.

    WEWS retooled their whole website a couple of days ago, and the bios (MJ’s included) are slowly but surely being added back in.

    Methinks someone added 2 + 2 and got 5 and got the wrong idea about Johnson.

    That someone was FTVLive!

    I’m batting 1000% in wrong info. First Sinclair buying FOX 8, now this. My next prediction:  Ernest Angeley will do a “You’re going to hell if you don’t send me money” begathon and somehow end up with enough cash to find a loophole in FCC regulations and buy WKYC, WEWS, WOIO, WJW & The PBS stations and convert all but one to religious programming and have enough money left over to hire someone to buy the Akron Beacon Journal and have Bob Dyer “terminated” for his expose on Ernie’s shenanigans. The lone non-religious station will become a Home Shopping Network for Ernest Angley branded “You Are Special” toupees and religious knick-knacks & pamphlets.

    Ha!

    I hear those toupees also make nice tea cosies.

    Wasn’t referring to you, Yek, with the 2 + 2 = 5 crack.

    Media Fan was right, I was talking specifically about FTV Live.

    They epitomized the ASS-U-ME cliche.

    Ehh, Scott Jones is right far, far more often than he is wrong. If he doesn’t make a correction on this mixup tomorrow morning, I will be surprised.

    Recorded in Ultra Stereo, the ultimately superior cousin to Normal Stereo!

    He sort of corrected it here.

    Mark Johnson is NOT going anywhere! He’s been with WEWS for 25 years and why would he leave?
