...And The New Morning Anchor on CBS-3 Is...

Erika von Tiehl has been named the new co-anchor of CBS-3's "Eyewitness News" opposite Ukee Washington. Von Tiehl comes to Philadelphia from Miami's CBS4 where she anchors the 5:30 PM and 10 PM newscasts, a position she's held since October 2007. Prior to Miami, Von Tiehl anchored at Buffalo's WKBW-TV where she covered the October 2006 winter storm that brought the city to a halt and left more than 400,000 without power. Expect an August debut.

Chris May has tweeted that CBS-3 will hatch their plan in the next month or so to join FOX-29 on the 4:30 a.m. hour with "Eyewitness News". KYW will be the second in this market to bring news to their viewers at the earlier hour...a trend across the country to capture the ever-important advertiser dollar and important rating.
In addition, CBS-3 will revive their Saturday morning newscast they abandoned a year-and-a-half ago due to cost-cutting.
No word yet on Liz Keptner's replacement, let alone WRC-TV bound Doug Kammerer's.

So Long Doug Kammerer...

I was disappointed to read Michael Klein's news today that CBS-3 morning weatherguy, Doug Kammerer, is leaving the station this summer. Kammerer has landed the Chief Meteorologist position at Washington D.C.'s WRC-TV. Kammerer started in this market at NBC's WCAU-TV and has spent the past three years at KYW's CBS-3. Kammerer was probably my top two favorites for to WPVI's Adam Joseph. Good luck Doug!
