Re: Old cable lineups

Yet another Downriver lineup...this one from 2000.

What happened between those two? Why did Jason Carr leave Fox 2 for WDIV? Was it over money? Fox 2’s morning show hasn’t been the same since he left.
I believe it was due to layoffs imposed by Fox Television Stations a few years back.

This will be the first year LeBron won't be in the playoffs since early in his first stint in Cleveland
Correct, as both his current team (Lakers) and his previous team (Cleveland) failed to qualify for the playoffs.

Grand Rapids has three.

WWMT is in Kalamazoo.
But they are in the same DMA, which means four.

CBS has finally realized there is enough room for competition in the Detroit market and is building a TV news operation for WWJ/WKBD. CBS will launch morning, 6 PM and 11 PM newscasts on WWJ and a morning newscast extension and 10 PM newscast on WKBD.

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

Jackson County really is the only region where there was a substantial OTA coverage gap. With an outdoor antenna in Jackson, I suspect one or more ABC affiliates could still be received (albeit with some snow). Lansing is only 43 miles from the WJRT TX site, which is 12 miles closer than Muskegon i...

Re: Channel 7 must have bills to pay

I could already tell that this was going to happen, make-goods for all those local advertisers who got preempted by tornado warning coverage earlier this month.

Re: Most distant AM/FM/TV signal you ever tuned in?

I think there are 9 towers left for 1500, It’s been a while since I’ve seen them. Also I remember being able to see WKNR’s towers from a distance at night and not being able to receive Keener 13 at all in the nighttime. And I can’t forget WJR’s one tower from Riverview, I was able to see that one a...

Re: TV Guide

They discontinued the regional editions in 2005, in favor of the national listings. I gave up on TVG in 2004 when they began to mess with the listings format. And I have yet to even handle a TVG since its 2005 revamp. The last couple of times that I bought a TV magazine of any kind was in 2011 (whe...

Most distant AM/FM/TV signal you ever tuned in?

Another pre-crash thread recreation. As in the old thread, list the most distant AM, FM and TV signal you've ever tuned in. From my current memory, all from my current house in Wyandotte using respective indoor receivers for each medium: AM: probably one of the east coast clear-channel stations. FM:...

Re: 2018-2019 Pistons

Solid job in their latest victory against a weak Suns. Our #6 seed lead has gotten better and thanks to a Lakers loss, they have been eliminated from playoff contention so we shall not need to worry about them.
