Aaron Solomon is on leave, but is expected back beginning of July.
My husband and I sure miss him in the mornings. Hope all is ok.
Hope all is well Aaron, miss you in the morning, hurry back!!
Have not seen Aaron Solomon and channel 4 lately. He is no longer on WSMV web site. Where has he gone?
I've missed Aaron, too, and checked the website. His name and bio are missing. I hope it's just a short-term thing. He's valuable to the community and the station. His "Cool Schools" segments are top-notch.
It looks like Aaron may really be gone this time. Has anyone heard anything about him? His last station tweet was back on April 12th and almost all mention of him is gone from the Channel 4 website. Did he leave and my family just missed it or what? Where is Aaron Solomon?
He has not been on the morning broadcast recently, and I can't find his profile on the WSMV website.
Has something happened? I hope not. Will miss him if he's gone for good.
This was the response from WSMV:
Thanks so much for writing this morning.
Aaron quit working here at WSMV last week.
We all miss him and wish him the very best.
Take care and thanks for watching.
Assistant News Director
I think WSMV has warned all their employees and must be threatening their lives if they spilled the beans ....because NO ONE is talking about Aaron Solomon's absence. But...... I do know Aaron was definitely let go by the new GM, Doreen Wade. She is brand new to the station, and can be known to make your life miserable. Station ratings have tanked over a three year period and Wade isn't wasting any time making changes.
WSMV used to be #1 two years ago - but the bottom line is that their morning show ratings are currently a disaster and someone had to be sacrificed. The station is now conducting a nationwide search for Aaron's replacement.
they just lost two more viewers! I loved Aaron and Holly together in the mornings and the Josh they have as interim is just TERRIBLE and we had to turn it this morning to get away from that voice.
Aaron Solomon should have been the replacement for Dan Miller.... however, they decided to go a different direction... and it got them into the pits... now they are struggling to find their way out... Guess what ... they will have no viewers by the time this is over. I sure hope Aaron goes to another station in the Nashville area... his talent is too good to be wasted... and a great asset to the Nashville community.... WSMV was wonderful in the days of Dan Miller.. but now they are struggling and I for one will let them struggle.
I received word from Holly Thompson that Aaron Solomon has resigned and will not be back. All of his information has been wiped clean from the WSMV web site and his Facebook page has had WSMV removed from it as well.
I am fed up with Channel 4 ... they seem to not want loyal viewers... i have now changed the channel... I only hope another local station will pick up Aaron Solomon.... he is a Middle Tennessean and deserves to work in this area... He is too good for CHANNEL 4... and I will no longer watch WSMV.... lost more viewers....
First Mr. Tim, now Aaron? What is wrong with these people? The only right decision they made was getting rid of Bob Sellers.
WSMV has not been very forthcoming when members of their staff leave or are terminated. They just disappear with no explanation. As long-time viewers of WSMV, I think we deserve a little more than that. Maybe they think we are just too dumb to notice, or maybe that it's just none of our damned business. Bob Sellers, Tim Ross and now Aaron Solomon. Who's next? Maybe it's time for some changes in the front office?
So sorry to hear Aaron is gone. I too hope he lands at another Nashville market station. I don't know Channel 4's logic or reasoning, but am sure Josh Devine is not the answer. Aaron was, and is, super for the community and added so much professionalism to the morning show. This must be good news for channels 2, 5 and 17.
letting him go is a big mistake -- JD is not a good replacement. His mannerisms get on my nerves. To channel 4's new GM "this was not the way to get your morning ratings up" there are others that should have been let go first. BIG MISTAKE!
I am really getting tired of Channel 4 getting rid of the class acts! First Tim Ross then Bob Sellers and now Aaron Solomon. Will definitely switch to one of the other channels. Good luck to Aaron.
If ratings were low, there's a reason why. I've worked with people who seem to be quite lovely but don't bring positive energy to the work place. We only know the people we see on the TV but we don't really know who they are or what they're like to work with. It's very possible that the new GM knows what she's doing. I'm sure the people who say that the new GM is making their lives miserable are the ones who are not open to changing thier attitudes. Change isn't always easy but in this case it might turn out to be a good thing. The station needs to find the right combinationof news casters. I hope they figure it out and find replacements who exude a positive attitude.
When Dan died, we found comfort in our hometown boy Aaron. He and Holly went together just like Dan and Demetria. Channel 4 used to be the station to watch, now it's just something to ignore. Try watching Josh for 5 minutes, surely one is not expected to hang on for the 3 hour show.
After the 2nd week of not seeing Aaron, I decided to "google" his name to see what happened to him. To find out this way, in a thread on the internet, is very disappointing. However, thank you to everyone who has taken the time to do the research; otherwise we never would have known. I've been watching Channel 4 for a very long time, and especially in the mornings! Holly and Aaron were the perfect duo! I loved watching them together. I know we all have our flaws and quirks that get on each other's nerves, but I agree, Josh's mannerism's are quite annoying that early in the morning. He is too dramatic with his tone - over anxious and loud. I said just yesterday, "calm down a little Josh...relax" as I was watching. Not a good fit for Holly in the morning. I sure hope that Holly survives. I miss Tim, too. Gee whiz WSMV, what are you doing???
I too miss Aaron, but my wife and I had both commented long before he left that he appeared to be miserable. A lot of the old spunk was gone. Personally I hope that Cool Schools disappears with him. I tune in to watch the news; not segments on the local high schools.
Well just when I thought it couldn't get any WORSE....... channel 4 has done it again. They have let one of their BEST on the morning crew go. First ....Tim Ross... now Aaron Solomon.Well I hope their ratings REALLY BOMB now. The just lost another household as viewers... this time I will NEVER return as a viewer....EVER!!!!! Sincerely a loooooooong time supporter, excuse me.. former supporter.
Tim Ross, Bob Sellers, and now Aaron Soloman? I agree, it is "their" station and business decisions need to be made but has not the new management not recognized that with this many changes, ratings are going to change. My viewing habits have now changed to a station that I can count on for some stability. That's my business decision.
For years I was a fan of WSMV in the morning...however, the show is missing something now. However, the chips may fall, the missing link wasn't Aaron. It could be his co-host. Channel five has some great chemistry with their morning cast, btw.
From a VERY reliable source--Aaron was moved from the morning show and offered a lower position with lower pay and less time with his family. He chose not to take it and I for one don't blame him!! Sad he is gone!! We are not watching Channel 4 any longer, however wish Holly the best--but not with Josh Devine!
I hate to see Aaron go! no mention this on the air--did you think we wouldn't notice?! Channel 4, you've lost one more viewer. hope he finds a new job w. one of the other stations.
We will miss Aaron too. Where is Jennifer?
Please get Josh DeVine off the morning show. I can not stand watching him or his hand jesters. He is to much to take in that early in the morning.
yea i just watched my last channel 4 morning show no Aaron no me. i cant stand to listen to Josh speak bye bye channel four you are no more
This was posted from Aaron:
..."Friends, thank u for your concern. Ch4 decided to go in a different direction w/their AM show. I decided to go be w/my family.Thank u for 15yrs of loyal viewership & friendship! MidTN & So.KY have always been my home. I always tried to serve u as I would want to be served. U can find me w/Angie@Gypsy's in Leiper's Fork. I'd love for u to come visit. U will be the first to know where I'll show up next. My best to each of u, Aaron"..
We will miss Aaron as well and wish him the best. I think that it takes years of exposure to a news anchor for people to feel that they "know" them well enough to feel that they can comfortably invite them into their homes every day. These folks become a familiar face and personality that we feel we can trust telling us the news. We learned this when Dan Miller first went to California and Ch4 was left without that hometown boy feeling. We learned that again when Dan died and that other guy came in. We didn't have time to get to know them, for them to earn our trust. Aaron has been around Nashville a long time and I thought was on track to become the next Dan Miller. Hopefully someone else with that "special something" will come around and Channel 4 will be back on top.
So I've done what many folks have done....finally asked my hubbie the other day, "Where the heck is Aaron?"
So sad to know that he won't be back. Really a classy guy.
Well, I've been watching Channel 4 for more years than I can remember. Even after I married a loyal channel 2 fan I won him over to Channel 4 but I give up. I just can't keep up with all their constant changes- the most recent is the replacement of Aaron Solomon. I liked Aaron but I did notice he has been gone a lot in the past year. So Good Bye Channel 4 and hello Channel 2~! Change is good!
We miss Aaron! WSMV could have reached a better decision then that. His cool schools, his energy (I feel sure that Josh Devine would never, I repeat never do half of the crazy, fun loving things that Aaron did). Holly looks miserable!
There is absolutely no-zero-zilch chemistry between Josh & Holly. There are business people that can run a business, and then there are people that can run a business into the ground. I'm sorry to say that your new business manager appears to be doing the latter of the two! If you are cutting corners, you have just cut the wrong one! Hey Aaron, do you know anything about labels? LOL~We love you, and miss you!
My family has been watching channel 4 in the mornings since Holly and Aaron were a team. We have been so disappointed since he left. Your GM has really messed things up!! They worked well together just like Dan and Demetria did. What a terrible thing to do to your loyal viewers and to the rest of channel 4. Aaron, you will be an asset to whatever your next job is. I hope it is channel 2 or 5. I have never watched either of them in the AM, but i certainly can. If you get rid of Holly next, you might as well close up shop on the AM news. PITIFUL!!!
Aaron Solomon was the best male at Channel 4 since Dan Miller. He SHOULD have been Dan Miller's replacement. I am extremely dissappointed that he is gone. I guess I will have to tune in to another network and see if I can find a replacement for Channel 4.
very disappointing....that "devine" guy is horrible. i cant stand to watch it now. i quit watching for a while when he was covering the weather.....ugh! i hope they realized they cut off their nose to spite their face. there are alot of people whio watched just because of the morning combo.....not anymore! i have to find another morning show to watch! this stinks!
I found Aaron! He is down in Leiper's Fork with his wife, Angie. They own an adorable store called Gypsies. If you want to read more, I will be writing about Leiper's Fork on my blog, StyleBlueprint. Go to www.StyleBlueprint.com
Its about time this jerk is gone. I have been watching Holly on WSMV since the mid 90s but I just can't stand this man. Neil Orne comes across as a much more likeable and the chemistry between Steve, Amy, and Leland on 5 is obvious. I ran into Aaron at a Titans game years ago but before I could figure out what to say to him he just starred at me like I was a homeless bum or something and I've never like him since. Cool Schools is stupid and he always looked like an idiot. I really hope I never have to watch him on channel 4 again. If I didn't like Holly so much I would have quit watch Channel 4 in the mornings. I wish Josh Devine the best!
wsmv continues to make poor personnel decisions. getting rid of tim was a bad decision and now aaron. very bad move. i do like josh devine. who else would they put in the morning slot? larry flowers? he's the worst reporter they have. at least josh doesn't make grammatical errors when he reports! they would have been better off getting rid of the weather person lisa. i am with many: it's time to change to channel 5!
