Tuned In: Events will sweep away February's ratings
www.post-gazette.com, 31 Jan 2002 [cached]
WTAE morning anchor Sam Merrill will return whence he came: WNEM in Flint, Mich., where he worked before coming to Channel 4 in March 1999.
"[WTAE executives] made it pretty clear they'd like me to stay, but the job I want isn't going to be available to me here in a time frame I can live with," Merrill said.
He wants a permanent spot as a main anchor on the evening newscasts, which is what he'll have in Michigan as anchor of the 6 and 11 p.m. newscasts.
"I'm disappointed it didn't work out that way here, but they have the guys in place they want, and God bless 'em," Merrill said."I'd love to come back here.I loved living here.The opportunity to do what I want to do just isn't here.Three years of getting up at 3 in the morning is plenty."
Merrill will appear on Channel 4 through the end of February.The search for a replacement has begun, though it's possible there could be some internal shifting to fill openings in the weekday morning and weekend anchor chairs.
Super Bowl commercials
Without a team to cheer on, we're back to watching the Super Bowl for its commercials, so it's worth noting that PBS will carry a roundtable discussion of new commercials that debut during the game.
