WBZ has added another reporter to their lineup. Bree Sison, formerly of WEAR-TV in Pensacola, arrived on Soldiers Field Drive yesterday.
Sisson issued a statement on her Facebook page, remarking, “I will forever be grateful to the viewers and coworkers who have been so good to me. It’s tough to leave a place that’s been your home for 6 years, but I’m looking forward to the adventures that await me in the Northeast.”
In another example of corporate co-branding at CBS, WBZ and NESN have reached a partnership agreement.
The new partnership between the former over-the-air home of the Boston Red Sox and the current cable home was announced today. In it, NESN reporters Jerry Remy, Don Orsillo, and Jenny Dell will appear live on the WBZ News at Noon and 6 p.m., while WBZ’s AccuWeather forecast will be seen on NESN for gameday forecasts. In addition, WBZ sports guy Dan Roche will appear regularly on NESN’s pregame show.
The deal, which will go into effect tomorrow, mirrors that of the agreement between Comcast stablemates NECN and Comcast SportsNet. No reporters, however, will change stations.
7 News anchor Sorboni Banerjee has left Bulfinch Place. The Herald reports today that the popular weekender is headed to Fox25.
Banerjee, who joined WHDH in 2006, is moving up the dial to work alongside Gene Lavanchy and Shannon Mulaire on the Fox25 Morning News.
No word yet on her last day at 7 or her debut on Fox.
WCVB has announced that morning anchor and Boston news stalwart Randy Price will be taking an as-yet unspecified period of medical leave, having broken his leg in three places after stumbling on rocks at a beach near his Maine home. Unfortunately, with the location being quite remote, it took 45 minutes before anyone was able to come to his aid.
Dozens of get-well messages have already been left on Channel 5′s Facebook page, and Randy has assured viewers that he’ll be back on-the-air as soon as possible.
As a point of personal privilege, it bears mentioning that Randy has been a good friend to this site for nearly a decade, so if you’d like to leave a message of support, please feel free to do so in the comments area of this post, and we’ll make sure he sees all of them.
