Re: Bill Harris retiring

Juxtapose (look it up) Bill Harris’ career with someone like Jim Kiertzner. Jim digs every day, while Bill reads a TelePrompTer. Jim makes new connections and works existing sources, while Bill cheers on the Boston teams. Jim tracks down corrupt public officials and holds them accountable, while Bi...

Honestly, we all know who this LL person is. Connect the dots. How'd that "Weather Garden", and "Buck Pole" work out for ya??
100% wrong.
It still cracks me up that people think you’re Mark.

Re: Bill Harris retiring

Prior to this thread being posted, he has been referred to as “dean of (mid-)Michigan anchors” only twice online, possibly in print too. First, in his bio, which he authored. And second, in his retirement announcement, which it’s safe to assume he authored as well. So who came up with the title? Si...

Re: Bill Harris retiring

Bill is an amazing person. He treats everyone around him with respect. He always gives his best and I feel like I’m better at my job because of the time that I spent working with him. He deserves every award, word of praise, accolade, etc. that comes his way. His retirement is well earned and I hope...

Re: Thanks for working here! Here’s a grilled cheese sandwich!

Herm is correct, and DAC is correct. Nobody knows who I am and nobody should care. Speculation only hurts the innocent. PRESUMED innocent I don’t know who you are, although it is totally possible that we know each other. I worked closely with Mark for several years and I know you’re not him... that...

Re: Thanks for working here! Here’s a grilled cheese sandwich!

HL101 was let go from both TV5 and TV25. "It" is a he who thought he was better than everyone else... until he burned bridges and is now relegated to trolling his former coworkers on the Buzzboard. He'll deny it. But many people on the Buzzboard know HL101's true identity. You really have no clue w...

Re: The Ticket Dropoff

I only listen when the Tigers are on. If the Tigers were on another channel, I would never listen to 97.1. Correct me if I'm wrong but, the sports experiences of the "talent" on The Ticket are the same as most people's... as spectators. So basically, their opinions carry the same amount of weight as...
