Re: Sensationalization of the weather

The new trick is to include how many the "storm" will impact. 100 million people will be impacted by the unseasonably cold weather.

Re: Brother Stair Arrested

Actually, the bulk of his coverage is from some Clear Channel stations and Shortwave.

Re: Stephen Clark Retiring...

It's good that Detroit Public TV kept Henderson. The Freep dumped him in the most knee jerk fashion. There are guidelines to handling whatever they SAY that he did. None of them include instant firing. I don't agree with everything that he writes, but i do not believe that he did anything worthy of ...

Re: Jo Purtin

There's like 5 Purtan girls. I knew someone that dated one of them. In the time i worked for Gannett Radio in Detroit, none of them ever visited. In fact, from time to time, i've talked to Dick or exchanged E Mails. He's like dropped off the planet. Is he okay?

Re: Then, there's this.....

Here's one. I was listening to the ticket and the discussion was about firing Caldwell. A caller was listing reasons to keep him and mentioned that the host only wanted to ice the Coach because he's African American. The caller just slid it in, there. Really low in volume and sneaky. The host must'v...

Is this why Stephen is retiring? This is an excerpt from Talkers Magazine. The story says that Adell asked Rideout for proof and Rideout couldn't produce. Rideout is gone: Rev.

Starting off the NFL Kickoff a few minutes ago, there was absolutely no dialogue at all, though you can still see the hosts mouthing words. The music remained fully intact.

Okay.... So, whoever writes the prompter gave Franken a bit of a pass. Rhonda read that she "appeared" to be sleeping as they were preforming a skit. What?! A skit on a military transport plane?

The Political bias is getting to be too much over at Loco 4. A couple of days ago, a breathless Jason Carr was reporting on this H*** WikiLeaks scandal, involving Donald Jr. Oh, the tone of his voice made you believe that this was so sinister. Oh, the ONE TWEET that DJ reposted. OH MY! He spent well...
