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: New WZZM Hires

Who watches those lifestyle shows I don't watch any of them bet all of them are low rated only reason they stay on the air is because the stations get to keep the $$$.

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...

The P*rick won a Jim Rome Smackoff many years back,and parlayed his "fame" into a long radio career. ( Though Cowboy would likely win the 2019 Smackoff to become its first black and first senior citizen winner . )
The very first winner of Jim Rome's Smackoff.

Re: Yule Log vs. News

Christmas is the only time where they just air specials where the newscast is. I know Wood TV has been doing that for years on Christmas Day in West Michigan along with WZZM, Fox17 just did year in review type news the only one that did a newscast was WWMT. I'm fine with the Yule log as nothing real...

I hope Leonard wins. I thought he was a terrific House Speaker. Many of Nessel's own staff could not stand her; much of her campaign staff quit. That's all I need to know. The SoS race will be an interesting one to watch, as will the Supreme Court race. BTW, I'm proud to say that I did *not* vote f...
