Re: Rescan WEYI 25

I just assumed it was my antenna that was the issue with 25, and with the subchannel on 46, I didn't think much of it.

Re: Melissa Smith to Brewvine & 10's 'The Four'

Ok, 7&4 hasn't done that in recent times. But I suppose Sinclair is different.

Re: Manistee, MI through the years

Prevue Guide on 19? Wow... I grew up with it on 4 in Cheboygan. I found out a few years ago, apparently Cheboygan was the only system to have it on 4. Most everyone else had it on 7.

Re: Melissa Smith to host 9 & 10's 'The Four'

I had an interesting conversation yesterday about reporter compensation. Starting reporters at 7 - 4 are earning $13.50 an hour. Photogs (which have all but been eliminated)earn even less than that. 9-10 may pay higher, but non-prime time anchors are not likely topping $38,000. Northern MI, 120th m...

Re: Why bother with a broadcast anymore?

Great, crossing forums now... Most of the time you get the immediate action that happened from social media, but no information about it. That's where the news broadcasting comes in. I could say the exact same for looking out a window and seeing there is a fire at the local bar. Headline: "Fire hits...

Re: Bill Harris retiring

Wow... I wonder if LL101 has the same feelings toward anyone else with a long-term in broadcasting? Carmen Harlan 38 years aat WDIV, Dave Fortin 42 years at 7&4, Bill Spencer near 40 years (more?) at various stations. The amount and type of achievement one is recognized with doesn't really matter. I...

Re: Manistee, MI through the years

The 1992 guide didn't list channels that aired the same loop 24/7 (such as the Weather Channel, VH1, MTV, CMT, QVC, HSN, etc.; channel numbers for Weather/VH1/MTV were taken from a Ludington Daily News lineup from January 1992 I had posted on another site a couple of years ago). That's odd. I thoug...

Surprised there isn't a Prevue Guide in either '85 or '92 lists

Well, if that is all that grinds your gears about news or news station, then there is a serious problem.

Re: What’s happened to WJW-TV??

I don't see any issues with older news sets and logos, as long as it isn't some sort of complete bland-looking set from the 60s (there are some that are darn close to that).

Re: Old Video Clips

I had no idea Scott Michael Trager was on 7&4 before going to 9&10 Yes, Dave Barons and (I think) Brian Lawson were also. I have seen a clip of Dave on 7&4. My understanding is there was a change over of Chief Meteorologist at 7&4 that pissed Dave off, so he went to 9&10 when Bill Spencer went to T...

Old Video Clips

Came across this clip from 7&4 Newswatch Sports. Scott Michael Trager, Charlie Whinham. I'm assuming this is during the "Beam Broadcasting" days, unless Federal hadn't changed the logo yet.
