Re: Janet Mason to Retire...

I've heard she is a really bitchy person to work for. Explains that's why many people suddenly quit on 3 Mile. I can imagine those whos have stayed their the longest have kissed her ass. I have never heard that about her and I don't think slamming her personally is fair. Her rep has been and remain...

Re: Janet Mason to Retire...

I read that Janet was retiring last night enjoy retirement Janet. I wonder if Fox17 is nipping at WZZM in the ratings? "nipping at 13"? Seriously? 13 has been in the rear view mirror of 3,8 and 17 for years. 13's efforts are only in applying for and trying to win emmy's and MAB's. They submit the m...

Re: WOOD TV Hires New Meteorologist

How on earth do my earlier comments represent "WOOD bias?" Care to post something constructive, or do you wish to continue trolling this thread? Yes, I absolutely believe Kyle's contract was not renewed, and I suspect compensation is probably the biggest reason why it was not renewed. Then your "su...

Re: WOOD TV Hires New Meteorologist

He was likely shown the door due to budget cuts. We've already discussed that here. I like Kyle, and I think it sucks ass his contract was not renewed. 17 follows the same course as 8 when it comes to hiring young people for weekend weather duty. Again, more WOOD bias. If you truly think KU simply ...

Re: WOOD TV Hires New Meteorologist

The WOOD TV love fest continues on here. Any other station that hires a Weather person with two years experience is hammered, but WOOD gets credit on here for hiring a Weather person with "good educational background". And after all, this hire is Kyle related, yet nothing on his future or why he was...

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

E.W. Scripps to acquire WXMI, the Fox affiliate in Grand Rapids as part of Nexstar divestiture . I think the bigger get from that article is Scripps is getting WPIX New York. That's a big deal. It would be interesting if Scripps could use its leverage as the largest ABC affiliate owner and change 1...

Re: Fox 17 West Michigan's Most Wanted - Dave Keller

The web copy explains that his "wife was diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer and this video slipped thru the cracks", aka, they got busy worrying about that and forgot about everything else. Could the web version have better explained? I guess, but the video version expounds on it plenty.

Re: Underwood Out

I always liked Kyle Underwood's presentation style. I guess I don't understand the animosity toward him. I wish him well and hope his exit means he's on to bigger & better things! WOOD-TV seems to have a tendency to do RIFs in December, it seems. Not sure if that's what occurred here or not. It's b...

Email at WOOD from two weeks ago said his last-day is this week. Wondering why no-one in the know has commented on this yet?

Re: Faran Fronczak Already Gone From WZZM?

This is her second disappearing act. She also vanished from El Paso with no reason given by her or the company. What a "coincidence".

To Mr. Metalhead's point about shareholder approval, I've already read about three separate law firms investigating "whether the Board of Tribune breached their fiduciary duties to stockholders by failing to adequately shop the Company before agreeing to enter into this transaction, and whether Nex...

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

Nexstar does not presently own any radio properties. Of course there are operational uncertainties, but why would the deal not go through considering any necessary asset sales? Are you saying it's not financially viable? What I'm saying is there are hurdles that need to be cleared for this deal to ...
