Can Coletta survive at NBC 10?

No way to mask the problems

Frank Coletta has found himself fighting to retain his job at NBC 10 amid increasing tension with "Sunrise" morning co-anchor Alison Bologna and the rest of the morning team. Sources inside NBC 10 say the atmosphere on the set is "extremely tense" and worse in the hallways between the morning anchors. Bologna joined " Sunrise" in late August and  reportedly has been vocal to management over her displeasure in working with the longtime morning anchor. Coletta is the only male on " Sunrise" with a female traffic reporter(Molly), meteorologist(Kelly),  female street reporter( Kerri) and Bologna as co-anchor. NBC 10 news director Chris Lanni has been under fire and has made changes to the news line-up that has seen strong gains from top competitor WPRI 12. NBC news has had problems this year with the Brian Williams scandal, and Lanni faced criticism in the past with the firing of reporter Julie Tremmel for doing a handstand on camera without permission. Will NBC 10 keep both morning anchors? Will there be more changes ?
