Re: Lack of Local Reporters

Ahmad already teaches broadcast meteorology at Central Michigan University. We need him more than he needs us. The disrespect shown by 25-66 management by not promoting him to Chief Met when Jamie Kagol was let go... then telling him to do all the extra work with no pay increase... is ridiculous. Ah...

Re: Lack of Local Reporters

Kermit: no one really wants to stay. That’s been the problem with 25-66 for years now. Extremely low morale. It starts with the current pay freeze. Before that, it was the mandate that no one could get more than a 1.5 percent yearly pay increase (regardless of performance, promotion, or if you were ...

Re: Lack of Local Reporters

Possibly. If I were him and had to do the job of Chief Met... not given the title or a pay raise... I’d leave. The former GM/egomaniac/accountant in chief, the current Shipped In from Out of Town new Sinclair GM, and the In Over Her Head News Director all keep making promises to Ahmad that they don’...

Re: High school playoffs on CW 46

Storyline (Sinclair’s web content management system) can take our live streams to insert pre- and post-roll video as well as insert local commercials that are trafficked — like we do with our newscasts. With New Lothrup, Davison and Frankenmuth all in the finals, any sales person worth their spit sh...

High school playoffs on CW 46

You’d think a station that has branded itself with a digital first approach would take every opportunity to use its website, app, streaming channels, social media, etc to position its local ownership over programming like the state high school football championship. Alas, but no. The new Shipped In ...

Re: Poor Audio

If that’s the problem, it should be getting caught by Master Control Ops who are supposed to be monitoring picture and audio quality during ingest and when it hits air.

Re: Lack of Local Reporters

Good for Ty. Sad that he is getting out of the business. But when you get married and can’t live under the same roof, it’s understandable that he’d make a leap outside of TV. Hopefully now Ty will get normal hours and holidays off. Or maybe he’ll be rehired at 25-66 where the In Over Her Head News D...

Re: Sinclair Headline News on CW46

Armstrong doesn’t interact with us little people. He’s too busy promoting Armstrong Williams. Armstrong once had a fit because we didn’t provide him someone to do his makeup. It was hilarious watching the former GM and News Director scramble... because Armstrong needs to be pampered wherever he goes...

Re: Placing blame for the US Capitol Attack

Kermit: The argument that if it’s OK to run on CNN then it must be the truth is laughable. Either it’s a fact or not. That’s what journalists deal with everyday. We are taught to not air our opinions or grievances in J School. CNN is as guilty as the other cable networks of delving into the shouting...

Re: Placing blame for the US Capitol Attack

Kermit: I work at 25-66. It’s hard not to watch when you’re forced to run this crap. My argument is that my Shipped In from Out of Town new Sinclair GM and the In Over Her Head News Director should do the right thing and not run this program in the first place. The show airs conspiracy theories, lie...

Re: Sinclair Headline News on CW46

News without opinion? Yet on the newscast’s debut they interview 25 owner and so-called “political insider” Armstrong Williams. https://nbc25news.com/news/nation-world/we-have-to-bring-this-country-together-williams-on-us-political-divide They can’t even go one day without lying to us and our viewer...
