Re: Old county weather maps

Clare is part of Flint/Saginaw/Bay City DMA as far as I know. I always thought the technical boundary was M-55.

Re: Anchors sellling instead of reporting

Mentioning businesses on the station website seems a logical extension of these practices. That said, it also strikes me as unprofessional and disrespectful to viewers to keep plugging the station website: People who tuned in to WATCH the newscast expect the full news product INSTEAD of having to g...

Re: 7&4's new weather person?

Maybe interviewing someone, testing them on-air?

Have not watched 29&8 newscast in a long time. Maybe a slow news day?

Re: Manistee, MI through the years

Apparently, that's exactly what it was, and it shared the channel with Bravo (which had been launched two years earlier). I hadn't heard of it before either. Not the Bravo we know today? Wasn't that launched about 20 or so years ago? EDIT: Ok, nearly 40 years ago. I hadn't heard of Bravo until earl...

Re: 7&4 in 1980

Thanks for the info. It was probably WWTV/WWUP. I don't think the camp was wired for cable. More than likely, especially if it was more toward the west end near Petoskey/Charlevoix. If it was in Cheboygan or Rogers City, then most likely 7&4. I've been told that many years ago there was sort of an ...

Re: FCC Probes Sinclair Over Tribune Media Bid

'bout damn time! Sinclair (and some others) have been getting away with this for far too long. Maybe there will be actual break-ups of stations from Sinclair, meaning their "spin-offs" become their own, without any interference from Sinclair

Re: 7&4 in 1980

Cheboygan's was B&C way back in the day before Glen's.

As for pulling signal from Wisconsin, wouldn't the length over water cause signal issues as well?

And that slide and voice-over reminds me a bit of the old WCMU/CML/etc. slide and ID

Also that graphics package was superior to 9&10's current graphics!!
LOL
Hell, 9&10's own graphics package from 1986 is superior to their current graphics...

And that's absolutely awesome that 7&4 pre-88 was finally uploaded. Was 7&4 using Beta when sold to US Tobacco?

Re: What if WJBK aired Fox Kids

If I recall, WGKI (now WFQX) aired Fox Kids in the morning and Disney Afternoon in the afternoon. I was more of a PBS kid back then, so about the only thing I ever watched on WGKI was "Bobby's World" (funny to watch now and see Howie Mandel with a full head of hair).
