Re: WJMN dumping CBS?

A newscast filmed at a co-owned station in Erie, PA will reportedly air on WZMQ 19.2 at 6pm & 11pm. Does anyone know from where ABC 10's newscasts originate? Do the newscasters still stand in front of a chroma key well? (I hate that look, by the way. The lower thirds used on that newscast look nice,...

Re: WBKB adds NBC

Some out-of-market stations may be listed as "significantly viewed" by the FCC. If that designation exists, I think WBKB cannot block their carriage outright. Regardless, local cable & sat providers could choose to dump such stations. WBKB probably would've never picked up NBC if WTOM's over the air...

Re: WBKB adds NBC

Great news for local OTA viewers who have been without reliable NBC reception since 2009! Thanks for sharing this info. Per WBKB's Facebook page, I will say it does appear some viewers are upset that local satellite and cable providers have already discontinued or possibly will soon discontinue carr...

Re: Happy People At Townsquare

Another clunker of a ratings book for WMMQ.

Cruisin' 92.9 continues to show surprising strength. I lay the blame on Clownsquare's decision to fire MMQ's local morning drive talent in favor of airing the WGRD morning show.

Re: Fake news sports scores on WDIV ticker

Just found out it was U-M Dearborn who played Oakland. LMAO!

Would've been nice if WDIV would've stated that in its ticker.

Who knew the Dearborn campus even had its own basketball team? I sure didn't.

Fake news sports scores on WDIV ticker

Am I the only one who noticed the fake sports scores on the WDIV ticker this morning?

Great quality control going on over there!

No, Michigan's basketball did not play Oakland last night, and they didn't lose by 40 points.

Re: WHNE

Cracked out the ol' rabbit ears over the last few days to scan the local TV dial, something I haven't done in months. I used my ultra cheap GE VHF / UHF combo, purchased for $10 over a decade ago. The VHF dipoles extend maybe 15 inches max. Lo and behold, WHNE was coming in effortlessly, even after ...

Re: 1073 alternative Cleveland

Prolly not meaningfully unless some sort of obscure grandfathering provision can be cited. They are spaced too closely to 107.9 from Cleveland.

Re: Fox 17 weather

Yes - other stations do indeed do the same thing. A newscast that airs on WKBD in Detroit is taped in Dallas. The NBC affiliate in Toledo gets its newscasts from a sister station in South Bend. WLAJ in Lansing years ago received its newscasts from WWMT, or at minimum, the weather from WWMT.

Re: NFL Divisional Week Predictions

Bill Cowher was right. Team with the last possession won the game with that possession. I think he made that prediction on the halftime show.

I feel bad for Josh Allen. He did everything right but his teammates and sideline failed him.

LMAO x 1000 at the Bills. :lol Cannot believe those fools were celebrating a win when there was still :13 on the game clock in regulation, KC had all three timeouts left, and only needed a FG for OT. Then, the Bills screwed themselves on the kickoff by giving KC a touchback. Why not squib kick inste...

Re: WJMN dumping CBS?

The affiliation agreement with WFRV was renewed, so that station is not in jeopardy of losing CBS affiliation. WJMN is the only major station in the U.P. with a decent tower site as far as over-the-air coverage is concerned, but again, TV station owners for the most part don't care. What they do car...

Re: 97.1 Morning Show

He fits in well at WCSX, in my opinion. His style works well on that station. Hated him at 97.1 the Ticket, though. He constantly tried to stymie Mike Stone. Eventually, during mornings following big games, Bill would be given the day off, with no explanation as to his absence. Usually, Jamie would ...

Re: Could Detroit support a FM commercial Spanish language station?

I just wanted to interject that Reggaetón music is garbage. Vast majority of hip-hop aficionados who live in Metro Detroit would NEVER embrace that stuff. Not in a million years.
