Who's the idiot who nominated him? If he gets in, then Ron Cameron can't be far behind.

Re: Podell to Nash 93.1

My guess is that he will simply be doing a weekend shift on the station. It'll be nice to hear him back on the air. On one hand, someone with his radio pedigree, for lack of a better term, would be a bit of a waste to just do weekends. On the other hand, said pedigree would mean big $$ for Cume-les...

Re: Does WWJ 62 NOT Have any Newscasts?

Who remembers channel 20's green-screen newscast circa 2009-ish? I became one of their reporters "go to" guys for auto industry comment. I can't recall his name but he seemed like a good guy... short, stocky? Anyone know his name or what became of him? Jorge Avellan? If he's the one you're thinking...

WLUC-TV 6 New Set and Graphics

Pretty impressive upgrade within the last week or so. The set and graphics look nice; they'll get the kinks worked out in time. The only glaring downside is the lonnnnnnnnng pre-show open that needs to be much quicker.

Re: mid-July to early August ratings = DISASTER for WJR

'JR certainly has its issues, but for the love of God, D&M is not the answer. The station OM is a smart guy with an appreciation for 'JR's history, and I'd bet his hands are tied to a degree by his out-of-town bosses.

Re: What is the point of this? (Hurricane coverage)

I thought WDIV sending a reporter to Houston to cover harvey was *kinda* appropriate, since they have a sister station there (KPRC 2 Houston). I was watching coverage last night on youtube from WFTS (ABC 28 Tampa) and they said they had reporters coming from other Scripps stations in Detroit, Phoen...

I absolutely LOVE the current sound of WOMC! I'm 37 and this is what I grew up listening to. I can't turn the station off! I hope they keep it up! And thus the reason it works... I'm 27 and it sounds fine to me too... I wish I was 27 again, lol, but I agree, 'OMC does sound good musically. I'm a fa...
