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.

Re: WLUC fires Weather Staffer

TV-6 newscast quality is the worst it has been in quite some time. The young gentleman with the glasses who handles weather and also does some live news reporting from the field is unable to speak coherently. His work is painful to watch.

Now, 93.9 has reduced its loudness. Audio volume level is now too low. I think morons are setting the processing levels in Windsor.

Re: WJMN dumping CBS?

All other Nexstar CBS affiliation agreements have been renewed, including but not limited to those that expired December 31. An announcement along those lines was made either today or yesterday. Three theories regarding WJMN: - Nexstar was playing hardball and CBS upped the ante and called Nexstar's...

Re: Where’s Ben Bailey? Still on the bench?

The same small number of companies own 90+ percent of the major network affiliates nationwide. Nexstar, Scripps, Sinclair, Tegna, Gray, Graham, etc. I would be curious to know if FOX Stations Group has a vaccine mandate. He hasn't reappeared anywhere to my knowledge. Perhaps he has decided to change...

Re: WJMN dumping CBS?

Areal coverage of WLUC is garbage, too.

These stations don't care. They get more money in retrans fees when cable and satellite companies pick up new subscribers.

Explain what you mean by staged coincidence please. I honestly am unsure what you mean by that phrase. "it made me feel weird (but I kept going back)" Students felt they would be repudiated - and allegedly were repudiated in at least a few cases - if they refused to go to Anderson for their treatmen...

Re: WJMN dumping CBS?

Some good discussion here:

https://forums.tvnewstalk.net/topic/186 ... on/page/2/

The CBS affiliation with WLNS, like WJMN, was set to expire on December 31, 2021.

What makes this situation all the more interesting is that WJMN used to be a CBS O&O!

Re: WJMN dumping CBS?

Wow - this is stunning news. Let's not forget that CBS ditched Nexstar owned WISH-TV ( channel 8 ) in Indianapolis a few years back. The relationship between CBS and Nexstar appears to be rocky. This is bad news for folks who rely on over-the-air reception in the central U.P. for network programming...

Re: Real World Example of Masks Making a Difference!

Not all masks are created equal, but properly crafted and worn masks absolutely reduce the rate of transmissibility. If you are going to make a statement, Matt, that "masks don't work," at least take some time to provide links to research supporting your claim. The studies cited by the below sources...

Re: 1073 alternative Cleveland

Didn't 107.3 try Smooth AC before, which is basically Soft AC with some smooth jazz tossed in? Perhaps they should try 60s & 70s oldies. Don't laugh; that format is making a comeback in the rust belt. A 50,000 watt iHM station programs the format in Grand Rapids. A challenged signal in Milwaukee own...
