Storm clouds circle over NBC 10 Sunrise

Sunrise..sunset...


Tension fills the air at NBC 10 in the morning as word of the scandal involving morning co-anchors Frank Coletta and Alison Bologna have spread across social media. Coletta was suspended and taken off air at channel 10 WJAR after complaints of " lewd gestures" was reported( to management) by Bologna. Sources inside WJAR report that " nobody is happy with the current situation" and feel the morning " Sunrise" program is at a breaking point. One source blames news director Chris Lanni for pairing the two co-anchors together( Coletta and Bologna ) and then allowing the situation to explode. " Alison is very professional, educated, well liked, and many staffers feel terrible she is having to deal with this nonsense." However, Frank Coletta is very popular, loved by viewers, and has provided strong ratings in the morning for decades. One staffer (who insisted on remaining anonymous),  said, " Frank is a little old school, and  has a certain  type of humor that not everyone appreciates, but bottom line is the people in the state love him."Where does this lead? Who will be forced out? As one source said," putting these two together was a bad idea and now there is no way back. It is like a bad marriage, doomed from the start."

Exclusive : WJAR CH 10 Coletta suspended over " lewd gesture" to co-anchor

Exclusive Bombshell: must credit DePetro.com.

Morning Sunrise 

Sources inside WJAR-TV Channel 10 confirm  " Morning Sunrise"  veteran anchor Frank Coletta was taken off the air and suspended last week after several complaints regarding his "inappropriate behavior" from his new co-anchor Alison Bologna. Sources say the final straw was Coletta allegedly " simulating masturbation "under the desk ( while live on -air) and ignoring Bologna's request to stop the lewd behavior. WJAR sources say  Bologna had gone to news director Chris Lanni on several occasions over the past month to complain of crude language and  inappropriate remarks made by Coletta since the two began working together on the morning program in late August. "Alison went to Chris and complained about Frank's language and was promised by management it would be handled," according to one source. Sources say as Bologna was promoting  a story" you will see only on 10,"  Coletta began mocking the station self promotion by simulating male masturbation under the news desk. Sources say Bologna later angrily demand Coletta stop but he allegedly ignored her request and repeated the gesture.  It is important to note that while anyone can make allegations, WJAR found sufficient cause to suspend Coletta, who served his one week suspension and returned this week. WJAR is a union shop, the complaints were registered and the one week suspension was handed down. One news source said," this is it for Frank. One more misstep and he is history. Meanwhile, the tension on the set is visible for all to see. " This story is still developing....



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 ?
