Re: Passing of former Detroit radio and television news reporterThis seemed the most appropriate forum to notify

Was Tom Korzeniowski his "air name?"

I listened to a great deal of WMAQ News in the early to mid 90s, a most respectable operation covering Chicago politics and city happenings, then.

My thoughts and prayers go your way, in this time of loss.

Re: Shanna Grove

Her last Facebook post for the station was on January 24.

It appears she would post every couple of, every few weeks for the cause.

I don't get WZZM over the air and they don't come up much on my Facebook or Twitter feeds.

Re: Finally above freezing

I could play the sympathy card for my Free Press delivery job in the mid 70s, but Mom would haul me around in our Nova and do about half the apartments herself, when the weather was its coldest. Since Michigan colleges and universities are wacky enough to schedule baseball and softball games startin...

Re: Detroit annoyance list

Bring on "Tie Your Mother Down," though I am rarely in the Motor City.

Mark Champion's carping about officials is wearisome. A Sunday night game is part of the package when you call NBA games.

I have the answer to Ron's question, does that mean I can head into WPON and produce tomorrow?

Re: R.I.P. Bozo

Flint's "Bozo" was Frank Cady, who held the post from '67 to '79 on WJRT.

He also did "Mr. Magic" on that station for a period of time, getting pretty long ago to tell you if it preceded his wig-wearing days, was concurrent, etc. Mr. Magic had a turban and cape, I remember that much.

Re: TheGrio replaces LightTV...

MasterB, I did also notice the pair of Mystery Channels last night, 17.4 and 15.3, which means Charge! is no longer in my hand. I wasn't looking for episodes of "Magnum, P.I.," Selleck-era, "CHiPs!" or "Walker, Texas Ranger" anyway. I miss "ThisTV," where you could stumble into a decent movie now an...

Re: TheGrio replaces LightTV...

Might as well load all my OTA television misgivings into one thread. Dabl now shows up on two digital offerings, 41.2 (which until recently was GetTV) and 64.6, which was on the air first. I was searching for "All in the Family" around 10 p.m., as it was displaced by "Charlie's Angels" on GetTV, but...

TheGrio replaces LightTV...

For those who get their video via OTA antennas, 54.3 is now TheGrio. "LightTV" was purchased by Byron Allen and replaced on Jan. 15. It's African-American focused content, they assert a news presence in their promos, and I saw Stacy Abrams in a snippet, but much of what you get is movies with black ...

Re: Ben Bailey cannot forecast worth a shit!!!

My pet peeve with forecasters and/or meteorologists is the overuse of the phrase "storm." Is a weather system, in Winter, as the calendar or moon prescribes that brings in two to three inches of snow a "Storm?" It's an "event," to my way of thinking. Save the alarm-evoking phrases for the appropriat...

I don't believe the board is infallible, in terms of keeping someone from operating under real name and persona accounts.

Re: Frank Beckmann to retire from WJR

I remember Frank being "in the booth" as a Red Wings game began, when Bruce Martyn was being recognized on the JLA ice, prior to his 1991 trip to Toronto, to receive the Foster Hewitt Award from the Hockey Hall of Fame. It was a matter of the first few minutes of the contest, where Bruce was on his ...
