I’m not sure which station in the Lansing market is the primary, but in Kalamazoo’s market, it’s WKFR-FM, which in turn triggers the EAS on all other locals, channel 3 and cable/sat TV included.
I believe it's WKAR-FM, but not positive.

Re: WMFK used to have the best specialty programming back in the day

Saturday Night Retro Show - This was awesome because the host would constantly pull things out of nowhere that hadn't been played in practically forever. I remember being shocked to hear Kate Bush's "Running Up That Hill" on a local radio station. The Retro Show was awesome. The playlist was especi...

Guessing what HD was getting at was a return to the Lansing market? He did spend a lot of years at WILX.

Re: No More Scott Pelley on "CBS Evening News!"

Apparently, that wasn't Mr. Glor I saw anchoring on CBS a couple weeks back. It was a temporary anchor. Mr. Glor does not start until December 4. I have no idea who the fill-in was. Most likely Anthony Mason, who also co-anchors the Saturday edition of CBS This Morning. He's been filling in practic...

Re: Weather cut-in during the MSU - U-M game

Never seen anything like it. The possible tornado was in Livingston County in an area not in the WLAJ coverage area. It’s unlikely anyone in the affected area was watching WLAJ over the air instead of Flint or Detroit on cable/satellite. Staying on for 20 plus minutes was crazy..give the report and...

Re: Weather cut-in during the MSU - U-M game

While I appreciate the spirit of doing so and the public safety standpoint, does WLAJ/WLNS not have the capability to do a split screen? I saw someone who works for WLNS say on facebook that they actually don't, which is hard to believe being that it's 2017, but at the same time this is also market...

WLAJ (WLNS) broke in as well. It was horrible. WLNS is similarly getting their asses handed to them on facebook. Glad I had access to WXYZ, who just had a scroll.

47.4 is apparently on the air, running the FOX Fall Preview show. Assuming they're testing.

Edit: They're running it on a loop, so obviously in test mode.

WXSP either was an error or just a test. Checked those channels and they are now WZPX in HD.

Re: WHTV sold in the FCC auction

It actually appears that WXSP is replacing WHTV on Comcast, however it's labeled ION HD (WZPX) and the guide info is for ION as well. The channels that were WHTV still have a message on the screen saying it's gone. I would assume that what was WHTV on Comcast will soon be WXSP. Was WZPX/ION previou...
