Anchor Man Shuffle

February 12th, 2015 | Posted by Sara in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Wow, what a shuffle with TV news anchors in the last few days.  Some are controversial others are incredibly sad.

NBC announced that they put Brian Williams on 6-month suspension without pay.   They are looking into the accuracy of several of his stories.

Next, Jon Stewart announced his departure from “The Daily Show.”  This is a shock to many and the search for his replacement will be an interesting journey.

Lastly, CBS newsman Bob Simon was killed in a car accident last night.  What a tremendous loss for the journalistic community!

Rest in Peace Mr. Simon.

Netflix, now HBO and CBS

Yesterday was a groundbreaking day in cable/ television.  HBO decided to offer a streaming service unconnected with a cable service.  My husband and I canceled our cable service a few months ago.  We love it but we have to admit we miss a few channels.  Turner Classic Movies was my favorite.  Unfortunately one can’t have access unless you have a more expensive plan.

Now, networks are coming out with streaming services.  For $6 to 10 per month you can watch HBO or CBS shows without a cable subscription.  Although CBS is free one can watch entire seasons of programs like The Good Wife.

TCM are you listening?

 

One of the best shows on TV!
