Title: A little shorthanded today?
Post by: Spring Rubber on April 03, 2008, 08:27:44 PM
Despite today not being a holiday, TWC had to revert to the solo afternoon schedule, and every show has had at least one fill-in OCM on it.

I didn't see First Outlook, but I believe Jen has the whole week off. Eboni was probably the fill-in, but I didn't see it for myself.

For Your Weather Today, Marshall Seese was off, so Bill Keneely was the fill-in. Was *was* different, however, is that Bill seems to have asked Heather was she was going to wear today; he was wearing a tie in the exact same shade of pink. Normally Marshall is the one who initiates the matching thing since he matches whoever he's working with.

For Day Planner, I was disappointed that Dave wasn't filling in for Bill today, as I had hoped. Kristin was on instead. Apparently Dave's off today, as well.

Then for the last hour of Day Planner and first hour of Weather Center, a mildly sick-sounding Adam Berg made a surprise appearance. There were a few times where he sounded chocked-up mid sentence, and one time he had to clear his throat loudly and say "Excuse me". Hopefully he gets over his sickness or allergies soon.

For the ever-strange shift of the last hour of Weather Center, we saw Vivian Brown, and for PM Edition, we saw Betty Davis.

Stephanie Abrams is also off today, so we saw Kelly Cass move over and work A&B tonight for 2 hours.

So far today that's four OCMs off (Jen, Marshall, Dave, Steph) and two in the field (Jeff, Jim). Doesn't bode well for studio operations. :P

Bill is my favorite fill in for Marshall.He seems to enjoy working with Heather and lots of times, he mathches his tie with Heather's jacket or shirt.

He never used to, but he did so again today. The color was black.

They're a bit shorthanded again today, as well. On YWT Nicole Mitchell and Kevin Robinson were hosting, with Jan Carfagno as travel analist, then on Day Planner, Carl Parker and Alex Wallace are hosting...

I heard Marshall is going to be back tomarrow and Heather mentioned last Friday she is going to be on vacation for a couple of weeks. :)

Don't forget about Jim Cantore; he's either in Southern Georgia or Florida now based on what Carl Parker was saying over the weekend.

This comes, of course, after Jim was in Florida to start last week, came back to the studio for one day at the end of last week, and went right back (presumably on actual vacation instead of assignment this time)

And the shorthandedness continues today. We had Kevin Robinson and Alex Wallace hosting Day Planner today, then Carl Parker got the last hour of Day Planner and the 3 PM ET hour Weather Center.

Also, at 3:00 PM ET, Carl called the show "Day Planner."

This shorthandedness may continue all week at least, if Spring Rubber is correct about this (http://twctodayforums.com/forums/index.php/topic,32.msg36995.html#msg36995).

The reinforcements are here! The reinforcements are here!

Seriously, since today is Wednesday, the weekend OCMs who work Wed-Fri are finally here to get us out of this solo-OCM thing that's been going on for a while. Carl Parker and Dave Schwartz did Day Planner while Vivian Brown and Kristin Dodd worked Weather Center. Betty Davis is also back, so that helps. Heather is still out on YWT, so Kevin Robinson actually worked with Marshall today, and Nicole finally got to go out and do her Sea World reporting today.

Carl and Kevin will be gone tomorrow, but Bill and Sam will hopefully both be available. Sam would probably take Heather's spot on YWT, so could we possibly see Dave and Bill working Day Planner? Does anyone know when they last worked together?
