Great news at WCVB

Says the Globe:

Is Randy Price returning to TV?
Sources says Price, who abruptly left WHDH-TV (Channel 7) in February after 12 years, is being considered for an anchor/reporter position at WCVB-TV (Channel 5).
Word is Price, one of New England's most familiar on-air faces, will do test shots today. (The job's been vacant since Jim Boyd left at the end of the year.)
Price's departure from Channel 7 was characterized by station boss Ed Ansin as a "mutual agreement," but it's clear the former anchor isn't ready to retire. . . .

One person who is coming back is Liz Walker. The former WBZ-TV anchor, who left Channel 4 at the end of '08, has a deal with Channel 5 to host a series called "Better Living With Liz Walker."
Underwritten by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts, the program will air once per quarter and be produced by Walker's production company.
The first in the series airs June 4.
