Re: Marc Fellhauer is a Dope

Wow. Did Marc personally attack everyone on here at a meet and greet? There's 10s of thousands of current podcasts, including 3 a week with Maz. We've already lost Detroitcast, now you want to cancel Drew and Mike? There's some other local ones, but they're not ex-broadcasting employees, just some J...

Re: YouTube TV dropping FSD

Rumors are Comcast/Xfinity will drop them in September, just in time for horrible hockey and basketball. Nice.

Re: Koco McAboy is leaving WDIV (Local 4) for the West Coast

Everyone leaves The D at some point, whether by choice or laid off. Sad weather, murders daily, nothing going on in the city (especially on the weekend, it's a ghost town downtown), bad roads, daily news reports on corrupt government, lower TV pay than other markets, etc.

Re: Koco McAboy is leaving WDIV (Local 4) for the West Coast

I didn’t like her tremendously (they hire a lot of odd reporters at 4) but good for her moving up to a warmer and bigger market. 4 is still a pretty transient station... folks market hop through there. 7 has been hiring people who wanted to come back home, right now they have 1 reporter without som...

Re: WGPR

WGPR's signal is wack and their stream is like 24 kbps, or sounds like it. Shut it off and let people use their FM transmitters on that the signal. lol

Re: NOheart cuts have begun

The correct answer to what may be the dumbest question ever asked on a TV and Radio message board. My question is related to newsprint, social media and media general acting so sorry for them. It's not like no one saw this coming. Who would've thought people would be having weekly groceries shipped...

Re: What happened to Maz on the DMP?

Maz became an on-air punching bag for Drew and his suckling subordinate. As uncomfortable as it was to listen to imagine how Tom felt, no wonder why he hid behind his cellaphone. Just to have more in common w/ Drew, Maz even suffered thru The Bachel-wh0re... They'll talk about sports for an hour on...

Re: What happened to Maz on the DMP?

Maz brought absolutely NOTHING to the table. Was on the phone half the time. Brought up pointless topics and anecdotes that had no relevance. He's more suited to a sports podcast. He would do fine there. But a "current events" podcast like DMP? He was out of place and it was obvious. Yes. He rarely...

Re: NOheart cuts have begun

Why does everyone care when radio hosts lose their jobs, but no one cares about other careers? With retail careers, they just laugh and say, "I use Amazon. LOL! If they wanted a stable career, they should've gone to college! Losers!" "IT people? They should've known that Indians would take their job...

Re: Jason Carr - WDIV

No matter what you make think of Jason Carr, a few ladies I know say he is "easy on the eyes" and can't understand why Fox2 let him go. They cut anyone whose contract was coming up at the time. Didn't matter seniority or pay. Lee Thomas' layoff received the most backlash, so channel 2 brought him b...

Has anyone noticed WLLZ is not broadcasting in HD, been 4 or 5 days now, kinda sounds better.
HD radios are obsolete. BestBuy has sold the same portable HD radio for years, with a big speaker that you can't carry in your pocket. C. Crane, the king of specialty radios, doesn't carry any.

Re: Little investigating by on air investigative reporters

Not sure I follow your point... I think he likes Jennifer Ann Wilson (weekend reporter) on Channel 7, and she was the one doing all of the investigative reporting early on, then they gave the story to Kim Russell in the evening. Jennifer Ann was getting a lot of interaction on Twitter with the stor...
