Re: Some of the Many things that irritate this long time viewer

It's one of those things that grade us a secondary market to the big guys. First our guys have nothing to say. Whenever they tag a stand-up report they repeat the report. And let's be honest, the Detroit market doesn't have a lot of news. And as I've said before our news and weathercasters do not ha...

Re: Big Changes @ WXYZ

Any facts/hints to who will replace Steven Clarke? 7 really screwed up when they didn't hire Jason Colthorp from 4 before they named him an anchor. He'd be a perfect fit. Knows Michigan and a native, strong communicator, good at chit-chat, handsome and young a big boost.

Re: "The All New" 104.3 WOMC.....not interested

WOMC has made changes as it has in the other former CBS stations. We forget demos change and adjustments make scene. Sorry, we're ears are getting older. What I find most interesting is the talent changes. As I"ve said before no real talent makes a different other than $. What is significant that Cl...

Re: Podell to Nash 93.1

NASH as said isn't going away. It is part of Cumulus advertiser friendly format. I find it interesting that people feel with Doug joining NASH a program flip will happen. Doug needs a paycheck just like me and you. Throughout major markets and smaller ones air personalities change formats. My life-l...

Re: Jason Colthorp to Anchor 4's 5:30 Broadcasts

WXYZ blew it BIG TIME. Jason would be the perfect replacement for Stephen Clark. Handsome, strong serious delivery and witty/funny. Relatively young helping with demos, Michiganian and has real Detroit/Michigan reporting credentials. It will be interesting to see who replaces Clark. My opinion Clar...
