Ally Challenge coverage

What’s more boring than watching old white guys playing golf? Old white guys playing golf without a crowd. Must be time for 25-66’s overblown coverage of the 19th Hole!!!

Another 25-66 reporter leaving

Jasmyn Durham, who has reported on 25-66’s 4 hour long morning show, is leaving the station after three years. Another example of how the stations is incapable/unwilling to keep good people in front and behind the camera... especially if your skin has any melanin. A bunch of idiots... lead by the In...

Re: When you’re caught peddling fake news...

Update: Sinclair now says it has no plans to re-air the segment... after initially saying it was merely delaying it. https://www.cnn.com/2020/07/27/media/sinclair-fauci-conspiracy/index.html Another flip flop and black eye for our so-called national “news team”. Instead of #fireFauci, maybe viewers ...

New 25-66 GM

After promoting 25-66’s former accountant in chief/egomaniac Chad Conklin, Sinclair finally got around to naming a new GM. And to NO ONE’S surprise, Sinclair named another sales focused GM from another one of its stations to continue running its Flint stations into the ground. http://sbgi.net/wp-con...

When you’re caught peddling fake news...

It’s hard to believe that 25-66’s parent company — Sinclair Broadcast Group — keeps it’s FCC license. This week it was forced to cancel a segment on Fox castoff Eric Bolling’s America This Week when he tried peddling debunked conspiracy theories that Dr. Anthony Fauci “created” the COVID-19 virus. h...

30 Rock Special preempted

It appears the corporate overlords at Sinclair are going to prevent NBC 25 from showing Thursday’s much hyped 30 Rock special. Sinclair and other TV groups like Tegna, Nexstar, Hearst and Gray are upset over NBC’s launch of its new Peacock streaming service. https://www.thewrap.com/multiple-nbc-affi...

Re: Flint water crisis on 60 Minutes

Instead of doing local stories, I guess we’re now getting local reaction to Kanye West’s “announcement” that he’s running for President. He’s not even on a single ballot and we’re wasting time with this? Why?

Re: By the numbers

Lovin: you haven’t “got” anything in years. If you did, a person who allegedly never worked in broadcasting wouldn’t be posting in the Buzzboard... and making every attempt to take every conversation off topic.
