Re: I knew the next pervert would be a Democrat

One problem. This wasn't done while he was in office. He was a "Comedian" at the time and, as you know, they can get pretty naughty. Now, lets see what Melanie Morgan has to say. I used to carry her on my News/Talk stations. She's really sharp....“Yes, it’s true. I was stalked and harassed by Al Fra...

Re: WDIV-Hard to Watch in the AM

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?

I can remember that the owners were complaining about Freds expenses, what he was charging to the stations.

WDIV-Hard to Watch in the AM

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...

Re: Radio stations with the longest-running formats?

If it hasn't been mentioned, WMUZ went up in 58 or 59. Close to 60 years in it's present format. Speculation is that it'll be the only Christian station on the air, AFTER the rapture.

Re: Katie O'Mara

She's not doing too bad. Did a big trip to Ireland a month or two ago. I hear from her every few weeks.
Terry's doing pretty well as well. We were working on a story back in July. All is well with them and theirs.

Hey, have you heard the new Barry Sanders spot, endorsing that divorce attorney. He references his divorce with Loren. I didn't know that it was acrimonious. He infers that she initiated it. Interesting.

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

I noticed that this morning on WDIV, Walker, Cassimy AND Roux are all out. Odd to have 3/4 of your morning team, gone, at one time.
Carr, Ali and Humpfrey did just fine, though.
