Re: Opinion disguised as news

These one-sided opinion articles need to be removed from the news tab of our website and a more direct disclaimer needs to be put at the top of each article like: "The following opinions of NBC 25 owner Armstrong Williams do not reflect the independent work of local journalists." Will those changes...

Re: RIP 89X

Interesting that Virgin 93.9's website homepage has a big Value City Furniture ad at the top, advertising its Michigan Stores, but no mention of any Canadian businesses. I guess CANCON only applies to programming content! :rollin I think that's the web ad service making that placement, based on whe...

Re: RIP 89X

... where I live, I can get country on 88.7, 93.1, 94.1, 95.1, 95.9, 99.5, 102.9...and that's just what I can think of. A can get a faint 99.9 if I move the antenna just right. But, hey, maybe 9 signals will be enough. We'll see. You forgot about 100.7 WITL for country. ;) Don't forget 630 CFCO on ...

Apparently, the change excludes 580 -- just the FMs:

Re: False narrative of the liberal media

Of course, Sinclair skirted the FCC regulations by having many of its stations owned by shell companies and operated by Sinclair as LMAs. Sinclair, no doubt, is not the only one, but they have been real pros in using this to expand its reach.

Re: Sinclair Headline News on CW46

I also love the quote that they plan [The National Desk] on being unbiased and commentary free. Why start now? And I guess that means Boris Epsteyn won’t have a job after he’s done packing Donald Trump’s bags. Let me guess where they got the "unbiased and commentary free" idea from -- WGN America's...

Re: RIP 89X

Another crazy thought - might a cross border LMA be in the works, or are those disallowed by the CRTC? I think those are banned -- a station near Niagra Falls (I think?) got nailed for attempting it. True -- CFLZ-FM in Niagara Falls originally got involved in an LMA with Citadel Broadcasting to foc...

Re: Dirty Harry / Movies! TV Network 2.2 Censor Screwup

Years ago I was watching the Hustler on the CBC and it replaced by an infomercial during an ad break. Somebody figured it was the cable company not the network. Do the CBC's O&Os even show infomercials? I thought it was only the private affiliates (all of them since switched to another network or c...

Re: Alex Trebek dies at 80.

The fact that Alex not only survived the diagnosis for over a year and a half and continued to work until just a few weeks before his passing is a testament to the human spirit. Alex died a mere ten days after he taped his final episode. I had heard that the pre-taped shows with Alex will air throu...

Even after the recounts snd certification, Trump has no intention of conceding.
Because Trump is in it to win -- even if his chances reach the realm of impossibility and fantasy.

Start buying stock in Court TV. The Trump Case will have huuuuuge ratings! It’ll eclipse OJ Simpson as the trial of the century.
Invest in E.W. Scripps, the people who own WXYZ -- its Katz Broadcasting subsidiary owns Court TV.

Re: Reciva to stop streaming broadcast radio on 1/31/2021

Are there any internet radios on the market that does NOT use Reciva? I thought of buying one recently, but decided not to, as many used Reciva, and what I read, they're not compatible with all streaming formats.

So the Steelers are playing home and away with two different teams? Should one of these be the Browns?
