Re: Weather reporting

Oh thank goodness they’re on it. We’ll all be safe now. Give us a break. You don't think a letter from Congress would create a bit of discussion in the Detroit NWS office? I bet T-storm and Tornado watches are issued more frequently. Watches are not issued by local offices. They are issued by the S...

Re: New WWJ/WKBD Boss

A 10 PM newscast on channel 50 would be nice. Will be interesting to see if any additional heads roll. I'm still not over WWJ-TV refusing to break into programming on a wall-to-wall basis last August as a strong tornado ransacked I-96 near Webberville. That decision-making went out the door with th...

WDIV new set

The debut was this weekend. Thoughts?
Karen Drew gave a full behind the scenes look on her Facebook page if you need a place to see it.

Re: Weather reporting

Rate, I can't disagree with you there. That one is a failure for 4.

Re: Weather reporting

Another dud weather report from channel 2, 4 7 and 62 to make it sound like it’s the apocalypse. Just a regular normal storm that dumped rain and has left in 30 mins. There is damage in quite a few towns with Ferndale and Washington both shown on all of the stations with roofing town off buildings....

Re: CBS Detroit Job Cuts

This Ibrahim fellow seems like an attention whore who deserved to be fired. He is the Muslim equivalent to April Moss (anyone remember her?). I support the station's decision to cut him loose. That is really a perfect comparison. The fact both the Free Press and Detroit News took their social media...

Re: Weather reporting

Saw NBC, ABC, and CBS break in for overnight coverage. Did not see anything from FOX unless I missed it flipping between the other 3.

Re: Trouble at CBS News Detroit

that’s lead to an unwatchable newscast. If things don’t start improving, CBS will have to make some big changes. Should I share the ranks from a month ago again that shows the situation is the opposite of what you say? The beliefs of many on this board does not match the current viewership as withi...

There is traffic but not anywhere close to the same amount as the legacy stations.

Re: Trouble at CBS News Detroit

Staff was shown ratings information at a recent meeting in November. Newscasts, in the evening mainly, are beating WXYZ at multiple times and multiple days per week. Viewership seems to disagree with the assessment of this board. WXYZ is a distant 3rd without a doubt but to be that close within the ...

Re: Trouble at CBS News Detroit

Growing pains. Most happy with a few bad eggs slowly being discovered and rooted out. Egos are showing up where they weren't before. Shaina has expressed happiness with the station so far aside from the few bad eggs mentioned by New2You above.

It was a tease to their 90 minute Holiday Nights special.
