Good news for Ch. 2's 4 p.m. newscast, which saw its ratings jump from May to June. Ratings for the 4 p.m. broadcast, anchored by Dana Tyler and Stephen Clark, were up 22 percent in June, averaging 151,000 households. Part of the reason could do with the aforementioned "Survivor" - and interviews with contestants chucked off the island. Ch. 2 also had an impressive guest lineup including BB King, Carmen Electra and Patrick Stewart - no doubt bringing a smile to the face of Ch. 2 news honcho "Joltin' Joel" Cheatwood.

While I was upstate New York, a new reporter joined NEWS 2. Her name is Aimee Nuzzo (last name is pronounced "News-Oh"). And last month, Hazel Sanchez joined NEWS 2. Coming in August: anchor Angela Rae from WFOR-TV 4 Miami to (temporarily?) replace Lisa Hill, and entertainment reporter Robyn Carter from WNYW-TV 5 New York.
