Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

Re: Jennifer Granholm

Seems many forget the economical realities of the 80's. The US economy was in the toilet and the auto industry was flushed. No other governor faced the same crisis. Folks, understand circumstances. Could you have done better?

Women in The Morning

Many may know better than me but is there a Detroit morning show where the woman talent is the lead rather than sidekick? Haven’t run into that in local markets and national. All the syndicated shows have the guy as lead. For me most morning shows with a morning team sound alike. Wouldn’t be smart f...

Re: Rebranding underway at WOMC?

I listened to WCSX yesterday; I don't normally tune in. Top of the hour break had one spot after another - I mean really long. I couldn't wait any longer to get to programming. Moreover as I've said before to make great radio you must look back. Having a 2-5 second bumper to remind people what stati...

Re: Lee Thomas now on final hour of Fox 2 morning news Satur

I still do not understand why XYZ in the morning doesn’t have a sports report from one of the sports folk. Like Bernie they can record it the prior night. I don’t track TV ratings as many of you do but I have questions. Carmen the market star left, has the WDIV ratings gone down? Super-duper News Di...

Re: Entercom/CBS Radio Merger

This stops all the speculation on how/what/whom will buy CBS Radio. Entercom is a well-managed company. Right off the bat from coast-to-coast the industry is talking about changes for local CBS radio programming. Besides iHeart having a zillion stations CBS Radio is #1 and best managed. If I read th...

Re: Chris Edwards leaving WXYZ-TV

Something I wonder about is the spouses of TV talent moving to a new market. Wonder if Denise’ husband as an example took a job here and Denise with extensive Spanish and English speaking jobs came along. She worked in Minnesota. By the way she has a real Bachelor’s degree in Meteorology degree from...

Re: Jennifer Granholm

I know it’s hard for us to separate her performance as governor but her resume fits well with a TV as a senior political commentator. Attractive, articulate, experienced in politics. CNN’s political team is humongous. I don’t know is right or who is left or who’s in the middle. For me the best team ...

The Biz of Radio Sucks – Don’t Go

I find it interesting that the only jobs listed for radio on MAB website is from NPR stations. None on-air. Many of jobs for sellers. Are all stations happy with what they got, are they picking up posts on positions wanted? Many new grads from Spec’s. More than a few with years of experience; that’s...

Re: Jennifer Granholm

With all due respect you don't recognize the facts when she was governor. When she was in office the US economy feel to the level of the Great Depression. She worked with a budget/$'s that was minuscule. Working first with President Bush and then President Obama helped save the auto industry. All do...
