Re: Jennifer Ann Wilson's downtown Plum Market puff piece on WXYZ

Ronnie Dahl when she was at 7 did an identical story. She blew a whistle and handed out pretend tickets to offenders.

Re: Jennifer Ann Wilson's downtown Plum Market puff piece on WXYZ

There is or was a few months ago a taco stand. It was below average and the Mexican Cantina across the street is better, yet much busier. Might also be a coffee shop in there as well. Thanks for the info, EditorCJ. I do now remember seeing the sidewalk advertisements along Griswold for the taco pla...

Re: Jennifer Ann Wilson's downtown Plum Market puff piece on WXYZ

I agree with fuzzpower. True, the big chains have largely avoided or closed up shop in Detroit over the past couple decades, but there are plenty of independent grocers in the city, including a fair number of big box, full service stores. Jennifer Ann needs to get off her butt and do her homework be...

Re: 97.3 Grand Rapids

It is very much low power. Effective broadcast range is 10 miles max. Antenna is located near N. Division and Leonard, if I remember correctly.

The 103.7 LPFM broadcasts from the same - or almost the same - location.

Re: TV RF Channel Changes

The Milwaukee stations are rarely a nuisance in the GR and Kzoo areas. One has to be far away from the city or within, say, 10 miles of the lake shore for that to be a major issue.

Re: Jennifer Ann Wilson's downtown Plum Market puff piece on WXYZ

Lunchtime Global indeed still exists in the FNB building and attracts a lot of diners. Haven't been there yet this year, though. The Subway next door always has a long, slow moving line and annoys me. I liked the cafeteria in the Ally Building. Prices were very reasonable. I wonder what's available ...

Please. This is nothing but EEO bullcrap. The successor to fill that shift has likely already been identified.

Jennifer Ann Wilson's downtown Plum Market puff piece on WXYZ

I just witnessed one of the more insipid reports from the field in quite some time. Jennifer Ann Wilson on circle 7's 6PM Saturday evening newscast was just gushing with glee over the upcoming opening of the Plum Market mini-store at 500 Woodward (the Ally Building). First, Jennifer Ann calls the Al...

Re: Why can't WHNE go to UHF 30?

Interesting info regarding the availability of RF 36; thanks everyone.

Aside from WMNT-CA, is anyone else nearby using 36? I wonder how far north WMNT-CA's protected contour extends?

Re: Fort Wayne Gains a new CHR

LOL - this new format is a joke. This has been tried terrestrially in Atlanta by Cumulus and only generated about a 0.5 share on a translator signal that today generates a ~1.5 share with classic hip-hop. The audience interested in such product is not listening to FM radio. They are not going to aba...

Re: Why can't WHNE go to UHF 30?

That axe blade shaped directional pattern would be highly difficult to implement in practice. The manufacturing cost of a directional transmitting antenna built to those specifications would likely be very expensive, assuming the design is even feasible for a video signal. Even if that pattern *were...

FET-500: Sorry, but I maintain that I am largely correct on this. You really should do some research before making blanket dismissals of other people's remarks.

Re: Kevin Sanderson

He's been doing morning traffic reports on Fox 2 News for many years (aurally only; he doesn't appear on camera). I believe he took over those duties the moment Rhonda Walker bolted for WDIV. And, yes, on the radio around here - he's spent appreciable time on the airwaves of V98.7, Newsradio 950 WWJ...
