Re: How much of the news show is scripted?

Thanks for the posts! I remember Bonds but wasn't paying that much attention back then to remember how he delivered the broadcasts or interacted with others on the set.

How much of the news show is scripted?

For those that worked in the business, just how much of the local broadcasts are scripted and how closely do the anchors have to follow the script? I know the actual stories are written and they mostly follow the teleprompter for those (which makes sense), but how much of the banter and transitional...

In the up-and-coming department Ali Hoxie deserves a spot. Looks to be a lot taller when in the studio vs the field shots.

Re: Hankthhhhh Winthhhchestthhhhhrrrr is awful

I think you people are horrible, making fun of someone's speech impediment. I don't even detect it, and I know Hank personally and speak with him in person fairly often. He lives fairly close to the studio. I asked in a different thread, but was never answered. Did he do something different recentl...

Re: A CBS News anchor shake-up could be in the works

Seems like all the stations could do a much better job of partnering with the networks and doing a better split on local news vs national news, rather than the local stations trying to cover both local and national on their own. I don't think I've **ever** heard a local news segment refer their view...

Re: Whitmer ultimatum: No budget signature without 'real' road funding

Gas sales and per-gallon taxes are going to be short-sighted unless we also address getting some road tax revenue from the electrics that are going to be hitting the market in much larger quantities. They pay virtually no road taxes as it stands today, so there will be increased incentives to purcha...

Re: 737 Max Jets. Take a seat?

So they should spend billions and billions and take a decade or so and come up with functionally the same exact design?? That makes no sense. The 737 is a proven design and fits a specific segment of the market. Not unsafe in any measure. The EE article is BS. The comment "The only way the system co...

Re: A CBS News anchor shake-up could be in the works

It is now official. Glor is out, Norah O'Donnell is in. Also, John Dickerson is out at the Morning Show. Tony Dokoupil and Anthony Mason will be the new hosts there. I can't say much about the morning show moves, but the move they made replacing Glor with O'Donnell is a big mistake, IMO. Both with ...

Re: 737 Max Jets. Take a seat?

You guys are funny. They took a PROVEN airframe and gave it more space, more power and more economy. Neither of those planes would have crashed if the crew followed established procedures that have been in place for decades, however they can (and will) tune the sw control so it's a bit more "forgivi...

Re: WJBK graphics package

The group updated their music and graphics for EVERY station to keep everything standardized it’s not just 2 getting new graphics and music... that’s unbelievably and undeniably cheap . It’s far more expensive to do music and graphics for each station individually. Yes new sets happen once in a whi...

Re: What happened to the lisps?

Did they get better, or is it just me? I agree with deadend's comment on Hank though... there's rarely a report I've seen him do that I feel glad I saw, but that is a separate issue from the lisp issue (at least to me).

What happened to the lisps?

When I see either Hank or Karen now their lisps are barely noticeable at all. Seems like before I couldn't get through a sentence or two without being so distracted by it that I couldn't actually hear what they were saying. Did ths change or am I just adjusting to it? Seems like for as long as both ...

You think Kim Russell’s hot, You must like ho-hum looking girls then, I guess to each his/hers own. Let's be honest, Steve. On a bell curve, she's near the top in Detroit TV news. I haven't seen any good recent shots of her, but she was doing a shoot at the Arts, Beats and Eats festival a few years...

Re: Old Test equipment

Darn! I wish I saw your post a couple months ago!! I had two older nice Tektronix tube scopes that I was getting rid of and didn't want to just throw them away (which I ended up doing). They were identical 4 channel machines. One was a 'donor' machine and the other was in pretty nice working order. ...

Seriously, it’s 2019! Stop objectifying women! I always get confused about that. Women specifically wear certain clothes, certain shoes, certain makeup, hairstyles and shoes to accentuate their "assets", and males aren't supposed to notice?? Whenever males do the same thing (rarely, thankfully) the...
