Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

just read that DOJ has approved spinoffs for Scripps TV Stations from Tribune from DOJ. Which means TEGNA spinoffs will be approved sometime soon from Nexstar & Tribune merger. Got it from B&C website.

Still wondering how Izzo has a job. I still believe he was part of the cover up. He’s a dirty coach.

I don't believe Tom Izzo covered up anything and isn't a dirty coach either.

Re: MSU sux

You're a troll that lies about police all over these forums. MSU doesn't suck Tom Izzo one of the best college coaches of all time getting MSU to The Final Four again which is a good thing. And the MSU campus is beautiful guessing you haven't ever been on the MSU campus before seen the campus a coup...

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

I was always surprised WSYM never got ABC back in the '80s when they signed on from reading their history on wiki a few times. Lansing was one of few areas that didn't have ABC they got it from Flint & WOTV 41 through cable and maybe OTA.

The reason why The World Cup was down because USA wasn't in it if they were in it the ratings would've been better than was they were.

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

Last month TEGNA & ABC agreed on a new deal so Scripps couldn't get ABC plus they would have to share with WOTV in this market not going to happen. Being sole Fox is better anyway as I thought that Scripps was my number 1 to buy WXMI Fox17 from the start I wonder if they wanted Fox17 the first time ...

Re: Daylight Savings Time, Keep it or get rid of it...

Get rid of it shouldn't have to change the clocks truth be told the sun should be setting at 8:30PM since Standard time is real time DST is fake time and isn't real time. Stop messing with the body clocks takes me weeks to get use to the time change end it it's outdated.

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

If Standard Media doesn't purchase WXMI, it appears Apollo Capital Management could do so. That private equity firm is in process of acquiring Cox Media's TV stations and also is in talks to acquire Nexstar spin offs upon closing of Nexstar's acquisition of Tribune. I think Apollo also may have bou...

Re: Local news returning to CBS 62?

I wouldn’t be surprised to see a decline in local news as a whole. The numbers just don’t seem to support it. Perhaps I’m wrong? But if you look at the numbers compared to 10-15 years ago, the TV news audience is significantly less. It’s because everything is online now. The station does do news up...

Re: Rob Parker's Tom Brady antipathy.

I can't stand Rob Parker he is such a blowhard I can't believe he is a teacher at USC I believe and is on FS1 Undepusted and sometimes on The Herd. Bet Rob wouldn't have the balls to call Stafford Pad Statfford which I don't like the name calling which is uncalled for.

Re: Breaking: Nexstar reaches agreement to purchase Tribune

Not GR related but it looks like Nexstar wants WXIN & WTTV taking the Fox/CBS combo and selling Wish TV/WNDY The CW/MYNet TV combo. My opinion I think Nexstar should keep Wish TV and try and get CBS back on Wish TV since they did have CBS for 50 plus years before 2015 will be interesting to see if t...
