Notice to all Buzzboard readers & posters: A requested server migration took place Saturday evening. Unfortunately, I did not re-point my DNS records to the new server until roughly 7:45p ET on Monday, November 12. As a result, any posts and new user registrations occurring between the nighttime hours of 11/10 and approximately 7:45p ET on Monday, 11/12 have been lost.

This was unavoidable, and the longer I waited to re-point to the new server, the greater the number of posts that would've been lost.

Please feel free to resubmit any threads / posts you created. They will NOT be lost this time! Many thanks for your patience these past couple of weeks while I've worked to migrate the Buzzboard to a more secure, more robust platform.

Re: WHNE adding more channels: 14.9 to be NewsNet

I've stumbled across this site, which indicates that the upstart NewsNet will be on 14.9 in Detroit: http://yournewsnet.com/where-to-see-newsnet/ Perhaps there will soon be a test pattern or teaser loop running? Cheers! Statmanmi CBN's upcoming OTA news network has also listed WHNE as one of their ...

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

This coming Thanksgiving, both the NBC coverage of and the CBS coverage of the Macy's Parade in New York City will be preempted in at least two Michigan markets. In Detroit, WDIV is, of course, dumping the NBC version to show America's Thanksgiving Parade. Meanwhile, in Lansing, WLNS is preempting t...

RabbitEars is only listing a PSIP of WHNE for 14.8 to 14.12, with no networks listed for any of these.

Re: Old cable lineups

A recent videotape find got me some TNT from late 1997. All local ads were TC-area businesses (except one), and there were some ads for a cable system known as Cable Michigan. I couldn't find some info on this company, so does anyone have a clue as to what it was like? Back in 2001, Cable Michigan ...

Re: Rescan TV Channel Moves in Toledo

Checking WNWO's new RF's coverage map on RabbitEars and it looks like I should probably still be able to pick it up once they move. I am just outside of their Minimum Field Strength Contour, which in the Downriver area cuts across the very northern populated tip of Grosse Ile, then through the heart...

Re: Old cable lineups

What really torqued me off was that for the first 5 seasons of Saturday Night Live, WSPD/WTVG 13 did NOT carry the NBC show at 11:30pm at all, and the ONLY way to see anything were SNL specials on at 10pm. I think it was something to do with their stupid old 'Code of Conduct' slide (SNL too risqué?...

Re: Old cable lineups

Did WXYZ pre-empt ABC programming regularly in the late 80s/early 90s? I remember about one or two short-lived shows never being cleared by WXYZ during this time. WDIV was a bit more preemption-happy, which probably explained why United used to carry WTVG in Woodhaven and Gibraltar in the 1980's. T...

Re: Network programming preemptions by individual stations

There were extreme cases though-at least in 1987, neither WDIV nor WTVG cleared Super Password . The closest affiliate that cleared it was WKYC, which was still at the time owned by NBC (and consequently also the closest American network-owned station, as WXYZ had just been sold to Scripps at the s...
