Re: Detroit Protests coverage

WXYZ didn’t bother to cover it. Local 4 waited until 11:30 to go to live coverage. Fox 2, by far, did the best job. We even heard an F bomb from a Fox 2 reporter, on live TV All three had coverage during the traditional 11 p.m. time slot, but only 2 and 4 stuck with it post-11:30 when things got sc...

Re: President Schlissel just might’ve caused an uproar

So you're saying there's a chance of no Harbum "sleepovers," no daily Harbum diarrhea of the mouth on news broadcasts, and no Harbum excuses for yet another loss to that team from south of here? I'll take it.

Re: NBC LX Launches in Detroit

I just find it a bit confusing that NBC saw Sinclair Broadcast Group's "TBD" digital subnetwork and thought "I want a piece of that pie!"... most people in my generation (millennials) and younger aren't that interested in watching television these days :P Ring, the content is of interest to younger...

Re: New add at WDIV, it seems

Rate: you're right. Grant comes from a different station in that market.
Selz: I won't argue with your first line. However, your final two questions are better directed at the Circle. Scripps hasn't exactly cornered the market on bench strength and the ratings prove it.

Re: FUCK YOU, Entercom. (Chuck Edwards and Cadillac Jack both fired from WYCD.)

What's astounding - as is always the case when corporations further twist the knife into a once-great medium - is the "talent" that manages to survive any given bloodbath. I've been reading the lists and shaking my head at how "Talent A" was let go, yet the much-less talented "Talent B" is still emp...

Let’s hope the production value improves. Looks like it’s being produced out of his basement.
His video of Taylor Mayor Rick Sollars was poorly produced, and I'm sure he sent hizzoner a juicy invoice, too.

I wonder who they hired to be the MMJ's? I'm sure I'll see them out in the field soon enough.
If you think they're going to be seasoned journalists, you'd be dead wrong. My money is on recent Specs grads who have more "content" in their chest areas than in their brains.

Lori set WDVD/Detroit on fire before Cume-less shipped her off to GR. She has no business programming, but then again, consider her employer.

..or perhaps because someone at 30 Rock figured the Buzzboard needed something more compelling than the Ron Cameron thread. :rollin

I loved her voice, her style, and her presentation on the air. She was a big reason why I tuned into 'DET back in the day. May she rest in peace.

Re: WJR hits another all-time low and takes a big plunge from last month's already terrible numbers!

Very happy to see the trend for WRCJ, the classical/jazz station (1.9>2.3>2.7). Wonder if their new mid-day host Peter Whorf influenced that? He has the name recognition from his father Mike, and it's natural that he would have a more energetic, youthful appeal than the late Chris Felcyn (R.I.P.). ...
