I agree, Lou...Except 4 does not have a sports reporter in their AM cast.

This doesn't have anything to do with local news but it's still very funny. On Quiz Central one of the questions was "who had the slogan I Like Ike?" One kid answered Ike Turner.

Funny. The other answer being "Reverend Ike".

WDIV sending Walker to NY was interesting. I'm sure that they thought HRC was a shoe in and Rhonda would be part of the "history making" festivities....
Instead, it rained on their liberal parade.

This morning in the 9 or 10, WJR went to one of Steve Courtneys pre recorded sports reports. Ya gotta delete those old audio files, guys. Game 7 of the World Series has been played and we all know who won.

Man, just this past Friday in the 11AM, WJR played that old Steve Courtney sports report where he's talking about game 7 of the World Series. Why someone doesn't take that audio file out of their automation is beyond me. Sloppy.

And..... WDIV is back in this thread. The Chyron during the 6 AM cast had some breaking news. A 6 point something earthquake with 90 plus people dead. One problem, it didn't say where. Later on, the story was read that mentioned Indonesia.

What is up with WJRs automation. Stuff is dropping in over Rush and Savage (did you all know that his real last name is Weiner?) and lots of late stopsets, going back to the shows, in progress. How sloppy. We can send a guy in from Corporate to help them fix their problems.

I think they also gave away the end to tonight's Jeopardy, (the current winner died of cancer last week. Watching it is kind of emotional.)

Yeah, and WDIVs story, this morning, in the 6 was her "winning streak comes to an end". Kind of tacky. There had to have been a better way to report this.

"Local" 4.
Story of Chicago drivers getting cell phones stolen when stopped at traffic lights. Not local, don't care, ho hum.
Story of old guy in Florida rescued from stall out on RR tracks. Not local, don't care, ho hum.
Local, but why, since we ready saw this days ago, again showing the body cam footage of the drunk Deputy Sheriff resisting arrest. ho hum.
No Russian dashcam video or Chinese bicycle accidents tonight though.

I always noticed that too... most of their 11pm news is not local.... funny enough all of 7's was except for maybe 2 minutes... you'd think they could advertise that somehow...

Graphic VS Prompter Script. Rhonda mentions the 700 Million that Ford is investing in Flat Rock, the Graphic says "7M".

Traffic Girl reporting from a major accident (3 dead) and cannot dig up ANY news on it. 75 is closed... Thats about all i heard. Go to WJR and we find out it's a wrong way driver situation and that the freeway will reopen in a few minutes.

Marvin Yagoda, owner of Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum died a few days ago. The Channel 4 broadcast didn't mention how old he was, (78.)

(now I really want to go to that museum.)
