Re: The Deuce Expands to 4 a.m. in September

The chart I saw on TVNewscheck had KSAZ as August 8 and 'JBK in September. Maybe it was updated after my original post. In any event, adding another 30 minutes to an already too long morning block is ridiculous anyway, no matter when they start it.

August 8th actually...
No, it's September for Fox 2. KSAZ/Phoenix starts August 8, according to the article.

Re: WOMC-Steve Clark

Armchair, I agree. Neither of them set ratings records, but that's due more to a series of management issues. Scripps sh*t the bed at Broadcast House after being handed the keys by ABC, much to the benefit of 4 and, to a lesser degree, 2. How their popularity translates into the world of morning dri...

Re: Anniversary of the shittiest move in Detroit radio history

April 4, 1999. Easter Sunday. Greater Media fired the staff of 105.1 The Edge on Easter Morning. I don't care what business excuse they may have had, firing the staff, by phone, the morning of a holiday is still the lowest thing I have ever heard of in this business and that's saying something. I r...

Re: Malcom Maddox of WXYZ suspended

I get it delivered to my home. Hmmm... I thought they went to a three day a week home delivery schedule a long time ago. Thanks for the correction. It's kind of a weird set-up for seven-day home delivery now. Yes, the Freep delivers on three of the days, but you can pay (separately) for an independ...

Being as the Saturday edition is news stand only, it wouldn't surprise me to find it in the Sunday home delivery edition too.

It's the lead story in the print edition and the headline runs all along the top of the front page under the masthead.

Re: WOMC-Steve Clark

Does he really need the money at this point? Serious question. The guy has 40 years + in TV and is 62... at what point is the money less important than wanting to get out of what you are doing and move on? He’s probably set financially... I'm sure he doesn't need the money. He's had a long career a...

Re: WOMC-Steve Clark

MW, I agree. I don't think he's a good fit for the format. That being said, if NASH hired him, it would make a little more sense because he knows country and the station could use a big name - of course, assuming Cume-less would fork over the money. This whole "retirement" story does smack of bullsh...

Re: WOMC-Steve Clark

So he rather suddenly retires from a three-station-race TV gig into the even more competitive world of morning drive radio for what has to be less money? This doesn't make any sense.

Re: Malcom Maddox of WXYZ suspended

He's off the Circle's website as of today, and several media sources report he's been sent packing. I wonder how this will impact the lawsuit?

Re: Big Changes @ WXYZ

Dont know when his contract is up but I would go after Huel Perkins. I think he would would fit well there. If you're referring to Stephen Clark, he's already gone. On a related note, Maddox (according to multiple sources) is gone, too, as his bio is already off of the Circle's website. Purtan leav...

Re: Big Changes @ WXYZ

Funny how you hear/see nothing about Clark's "retirement" since word first came out. Makes me wonder if the Circle is keeping it quiet for a reason, or it's not happening at all. As for Denise, getting rid of someone who is practically moments away from giving birth is cruel as hell. That puts a ton...
