Re: The WLLZ Fix List.

I really cant figure them out. They started off basically playing WCSX's playlist with a few more overplayed 80's songs thrown in. Then they seemed to get the hint and at least try to mitigate the overplayed 70's stuff with more 80's stuff; though even that was mostly tired stuff as well. Now it see...

Re: Roop Raj: social justice warrior

Here we go again. Another on-air talent using news-time to call out a viewer. https://www.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/tv/2019/09/10/kgw-tv-anchor-maggie-vespa-hits-back-male-viewer-air-rebuke/2272373001/ It's a visual medium, right? Why shouldn't viewers give her feedback on what looks good an...

Re: Detroit Radio Ratings 9-4-2019

I'm happy to see fake Wheels slip a bit. Fuck them and their tired 70's retreads we've all heard a million times. I like that WRIF showed some improvement. To me it seems they are trying to be better- sometimes successfully, sometimes not. I'll give them credit for trying though. WCSX seems to be ex...

There is no mystery here, the new boss didn't want Elrick working for a competing local media platform.
Unless it is specifically forbidden in his contract do they really have a say in what he does on his own time? I take it that would fall under some sort of "Non-Compete" language?

Re: Roop Raj: social justice warrior

I have noticed that channel 2 in general and some of the on air talent seem to be getting more comfortable letting personal feelings (political leanings)slip into the broadcast. Often its just a look, a purposeful pause or a quick wry comment. Its not always noticeable but they're there.

Re: Will There be "Terrorism Alerts" during Tiger Broadcasts?

The whole point of Media Matters is to push a Liberal Point of view in counterbalance to any perceived Conservative point of view. It was literally created for that very purpose. "Media Matters for America was founded in May 2004 by David Brock, a former conservative journalist who became a liberal....

Re: Detroit’s Broadcasting Hotties 2019

Seems to me Ms. Andrews just got divorced or is going through a separation. She just said this morning that she "moved into a smaller place" and shes not wearing a ring. I never saw her wearing a ring. I suppose thats possible. I never really looked until she said she had moved into a new place.
